HUSKY FCTS is multi-functional weapon sight for use on crew served weapons, like automatic grenade launchers and heavy machine guns. It can also be used with vehicle mounted weapon systems. HUSKY FCTS consist of uncooled thermal sight, laser range finder, GPS, IMU, digital magnetic compass and ballistic computer.
HUSKY FCTS increases first hit probability, lethality and reduces gunner fatigue. The gunner has to measure the distance to the target. Then the ballistic computer calculates the aiming point using distance to target, ammunition’s ballistic tables, temperature, and measured terrain angle. After having aiming crosshair, gunner moves it on the target and fires. Ballistic calculation reduces tremendous the time to hit the target. HUSKY FCTS can also program 40mm Airburst ammunitions.
