Platt Brings Up Weapon Mount Milestone

Sydney-based weapon mount manufacturer W&E Platt has reached a major milestone with delivery of its 800th MR660 Mod 1 Ring Mount for the Australian Defence Force.

The MR660 Mod 1 mount equips most of the ADF’s Bushmaster 4x4 protected mobility vehicle (PMV) fleet, where it acts as the principle self-defence and platform-mounted fire support capability.


Operationally proven in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor, the MR660 Mod 1 is a lightweight and cost-effective manned weapon station fitted with either the MAG-58 7.62mm general purpose machine gun or Minimi 5.56mm light machine gun. It provides 360 degree traverse for the gunner and an integrated armoured hatch.

Delivery of the 800th MR660 Mod 1 is a significant achievement for the 100% Australian-owned company, which now exports weapon mount solutions to more than 13 nations.

Production of the MR660 Mod 1 Ring Mount is expected to continue well into 2013.
