Aimpoint FCS13-RE Fire Control System Wins $24 Million Contract

Recommended Posts

Aimpoint recently announced the company won a $24 million contract from the U.S. military for its FCS13-RE Fire Control System. Moreover, the firm, fixed price contract pairs the system as primary fire control to the new M3-E1 MAAWS lightweight 84mm Carl Gustaf.

Firstly, the FCS13-RE is a direct view, Dynamic Universal Reflex Sight, according to Aimpoint. Further, it utilizes an integrated laser rangefinder and ballistic computer to deliver an aiming pint corrected for range. Additionally, the unit corrects for type of munition, terrain angle, and environmental conditions, according to Aimpoint.

Aimpoint FCS13-RE Features

Additionally, along with the 84mm Carl Gustaf, the system pairs with other crew served weapons. Additionally, the Aimpoint works with 40mm high-velocity grenade launchers and .50-caliber machine guns. “The FCS13-RE provides a very high probability of first-shot hit on both stationary and moving targets at extended ranges and utilizes a very intuitive user control interface,” The FCS13-RE also accommodates modular magnification and thermal imaging components, including all generations of military night vision equipment, according to Aimpoint.

“Having delivered over one million M68CCO close combat optics to the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force since 1997, Aimpoint has proven to be a highly reliable supplier to the U.S. Armed Forces” said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. “This latest contract for electronic Fire Control Systems shows that Aimpoint has continued to increase our technical capabilities, and to offer new cutting-edge products for use by our most prestigious military customers.”

The selection of the Aimpoint FCS13-RE for use on the M3-E1 Carl Gustaf followed extensive tests and evaluations conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Army’s Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) headquartered at Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey, according to Aimpoint.

“In combination with the new lightweight M3-E1 Carl Gustaf, the FCS13-RE greatly increases the lethality and survivability of troops in the field. The ability to quickly and accurately place the first shot directly on target with a high degree of certainty represents the true value of this system” said Thane Smith, Military Sales Director at Aimpoint Inc.

Deliveries of the Aimpoint FCS13-RE are scheduled for 2019. Also, the system will be fielded by the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Special Operations Command.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
