This announcement is further to Elbit System's announcement on January 6, 2011 regarding the award of a framework contract valued at approximately $260 million for the supply of UT30 BR 30mm Unmanned Turrets to the Brazilian Army’s Land Forces.

The UT-30 is an unmanned turret designed and manufactured by the Israeli Company Elbit Systems. The turret can be armed with 25 or 30 mm cannon, coaxial machine gun (7.62 mm) and all types of guided anti-tank missiles.

Elbit Systems’ UT30 is a configurable unmanned turret, adding lethal firepower to armored personnel carriers (APC) without comprising troop safety. Encompassing a broad range of weapon systems, countermeasures and advanced electro-optics, the UT30 is combat-proven and in use by numerous armed forces around the world.

The customizable armour protection of the turret provides a protection STANAG 4569 Level 2, 3 or 4. Fully overhead with no deck penetration, the UT30 does not compromise the vehicle’s armor protection and preserves existing space within the vehicle. The UT30 provides enhanced situational awareness under closed hatches and is easily adaptable to a wide range of new and existing vehicles. All ammunition and electro-optics are housed within the armor- protected turret.
