SABER is a medium-caliber one-man power-operated turret that can be deployed on wheeled and tracked armored vehicles. The SABER turret incorporates the latest technologies in turret drives, fire control, protection and lethality. The compact dimensions and light weight makes SABER a suitable choice for a wide range of armored vehicles. The main armament consists of an M242 25 mm Bushmaster dual-feed automatic cannon with 240 ready to fire rounds. The secondary armament is a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun with 600 ready to fire rounds. The turret can be equipped with different sight systems with cooled thermal imagers, day optics or cameras and laser range finders to provide long-range day and night target detection. The fire control system enables accurate fires from the moving platform. The ceramic composite and armor steel armor package can be tailored to provide different degrees of ballistic protection.

 “With its armament, target detection and accurate fire control systems, SABER was designed by taking the modern combat conditions and customer demands into consideration for a weapon system that can be integrated into both tracked and wheeled armored vehicles to provide effective lethality,” said Brent Butcher, Assistant General Manager, FNSS.
