The LRS 8 is the next generation of the successfully integrated LRS family of fire control systems.


The compact housing comprises all elements of a fire control system to increase the first hit probability of a vehicle mounted gun. Images are generated electronically and displayed on an LCD screen, allowing integration flexibility and optimal ergonomics for the gunner.


Compact and easy to install


The LRS 8 is even more compact than its predecessor and can be built into most types of armoured vehicles while interference with the turret is kept to a minimum.


Easy to use and maintain


The flexibility of the large colour LCD screen allows a very user friendly operation. The electronic computing allows extensive fire control and diagnostic modes. The solid state electronic and opto-electronic modules are very reliable and require minimal maintenance.
