The newest boats of the Russian Navy were equipped with the Uprava-Kord remote command weapons station (UKSS). It is announced that all of the Project 03160 Raptor and Project 12150 Mangust class attack crafts will be equipped with Uprava-Kord remote controlled weapon station (RCWS).
The Ukrava-Kord UKSS has a dual axis stabilization system and integrated electro-optic (EO) unit. This platform also allows for the integration of the EO station with a separate gyro-stabilized EO station whic enables enabling image stabilization to be enhanced to a higher level. The system is 1,000 millimeters high. Platform has a radius of rotation of 1355 millimeters and has an elevation angle of -20 to +80 degrees. RCWS' traverse angle is 200 degree. Uprava-Kord RCWS has EO module, a thermal imager, a wide-angle colour day camera and a variety of focusing equipment and laser markers. In addition to these systems, the system can be integrated with an automatic target tracking system and a ballistic computer depending on the user's request, allowing the integration of a 14.5 mm KPVT heavy machine gun, a 12.7 mm Kord or a 7.62 mm PKT machine gun. The RCWS can also engage aerial targets flying at low altitude. Uprava-Kord is being used with KPVT in Project 03160 class boats and with Kord machine gun in Project 12150 class boats.
