Aimpoint’s FCS12 sight for Rocket & Grenade Launchers

    Aimpoint had their FCS12 sight/Fire Control System on display at DSEi ’11. The system works with the venerable Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle and the Panzerfaust 3 RPG. The system incorporates a 1x red dot sight with a laser range finder. The device can be programmed with up to 50 different ballistic profiles so that the operator can selected a profile to match the round loaded. A grip can be installed on the launcher that communicates with the FCS12 wirelessly so that the operator never has to take his hand off the weapon (buttons can still be used in an emergency).

    A nifty piece of gear!
