Turkish company FNSS designed SABER 25 in 2018 as an R&D project, with its own resources, developed without being bound by a contract, considering the current and future security environment. SABER 25 RCT stands out as an effective system against Armoured Combat Vehicles and Armoured Personnel Carriers, together with armored light tactical vehicles that are armed or loaded with explosives.

The SABER 25 turret provides the effective and sensitive firepower needed by infantry and other friendly elements in the operation zone. The SABER 25 RCT (Remote Controlled Turret) is also an ideal system to complement the firepower of the old generation personnel carrier and armored combat vehicles in life extension modernization works.

The SABER 25 RCT, which is the unmanned version of FNSS Sharpshooter and SABER single-man turrets, which FNSS has delivered to the armed forces of different countries in large numbers for many years; is a single-man, medium-caliber and electrically driven turret. Equipped with 25 mm dual-feed automatic cannon, 7.62 mm machine gun providing high firepower, and strike performance, the SABER 25 RCT can be integrated into all tracked and wheeled armored combat vehicles from 4x4 to 8x8 with its optimized size and low weight.

The SABER 25 turret has an electrical drive and fire control subsystems are completely designed by FNSS. She provides the expansion of the interior volume of the armored combat vehicle by not having an ammunition box. It incorporates the latest technologies in turret propulsion, fire control, survivability and firepower.
