It is believed that delivery of this Smash-2000 fire control system will begin to the Navy from next year. This weapon is capable of shooting down a drone flying at a height of about 120 meters.
The gun can be fired from a distance with this technology
Israeli company Smart Shooter developed the SMASH Hopper Gun attached to the SMASH product in July. This gun is also known as the Light Remote Controlled Weapon Station (LRCWS). The system consists of a SMASH 2000 computerized firing site and remote control supports. Which can be mounted on a tripod, on the ground or on a car.
This gun locates by locating the target
The SMASH 2000 weapons site does not require any automatic pistol mount. It automatically locates the target and locks it. After which, when the operator seated in the distance feels that the target is now more damaged by the shot, he can then shoot via the remote control.
