The Aimpoint FCS12 is a Fire Control System for weapons like the recoilless Carl Gustav and Panzerfaust as well as Automatic Grenade Launchers and other support weapons. The operator aims at the target on a direct line-of-sight, which allows both eyes open. The optical axis between the eye and the target is not broken or linked by use of prisms.The sight contains an eye safe 1550 nm LRF (Laser Range Finder), a ballistic computer with the capability to store up to 50 different ballistic algorithms, and a parallax free optical channel with unlimited eye relief. The FCS12 compensates automatically for the ballistic drop of projectiles at measured distances, factoring in variables such as: rotational (spin) drift, propellant temperature and terrain angle. The system consists of two separate modules — the sight and aremote grip interface which transmit commands to the sight via a wireless link. The remote grip interface is designed to control the most important functions for operating the system during combat.
The Aimpoint FCS12 is the result of many years of intensive studies, research, and state-of-the-art technical design. The system’s solid-state design (no moving parts) ensures reliable operation and sustainability during field use.
• Small and very rugged design. • No moving parts. • Compatibility with all generations of Night Vision Devices (NVD). The optical channel is designed to have an optimal eye relief of approximately 180 mm to allow the use of NVD. • Digital push button interface located on the rear of the sight allows for setting advanced features, as well as providing a backup interface for standalone. • User-friendly electronic controls and graphical interface displays. • More than 3 days continuous operations including 100 range findings on one battery pack. • Quick change battery power packs containing six standard AA batteries (Alkaline or Lithium). • Manual override controls allow the operator to manually toggle range. • Selectable language feature. • Storage of up to 50 different ballistic algorithms. • A short list of up to 5 different ballistic algorithms (types of ammunition) can be chosen directly from the remote grip interface. • Terrain angle compensation measured by an integrated inclinometer. • The LRF measurement button overrides all other functions and returns the system to ready mode from any other point in the menu. • Selectable weapon feature.
