ABSTRACT
The article reports on several remote-controlled turrets for naval forces. They include the Lemur from BAE Systems that integrates a remote-controlled weapon station into a gyro-stabilised electro-optical sight and is intended to participate in the whole spectrum of conflict. Another is the Mk 38 Mod 2 weapon that uses Rafael's 25-mm Typhoon Mk 25 Naval Stabilised Weapon Station. The Raytheon Phalanx has the ability to shred incoming anti-ship missiles to pieces.
