Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace Land Systems executive vice-president Pål E. Bratlie said: “We are very pleased that the British Army continues to rely on Kongsberg as the supplier of remote weapon stations. This confirms the strong position of Kongsberg’s Protector RS4 RWS, and continues the close relationship between Kongsberg, the British Armed Forces and Thales UK.”
