Full Spectrum Medium Caliber Lethality Solution

The Leonardo DRS Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS) provides enhanced lethality for the Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT).  With Moog’s Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP) as the centerpiece, the MCWS solution provides enhanced lethality with the XM813 (30mmx173mm) cannon while maintaining the transportability, mobility and survivability of the platform.  Our MCWS solution can provide the Army with a common turret opportunity for Stryker soldiers.
