At MSPO 2013, the Italian Company OTO Melara shows two products of its large range of military products, the HITFIST turret mounted on a Rosomak, wheeled armoured infantry fighting vehicle in service with the Polish Army and the Draco, 76mm multirole weapon system. Oto Melara is a strong player for high-tech military supplies to domestic and foreign Armed Forces alike, because Oto Melara is a well consolidated, traditional, worldwide-known, and reliable company.

OTO Melara operates in Poland since 2003, when a contract was signed with the local industry for the supply of 313 land-based towers HITFIST ® 30mm with the transfer of its manufacturing license. After this, other contracts followed for the provision of logistics support and spare parts, always relative to the towers HITFIST ®. The current requirements of the Polish Ministry of Defence land for new programs represent a great opportunity for OTO Melara, which is able to offer customers a complete and modern range of towers to be installed on new vehicles or with which modernize vehicles already in use.

Also for the future programs of the Navy, OTO Melara is ready to offer its medium caliber naval systems, including the 76/62 Super Rapid, in STRALES version, and smaller towers from 12.7, 30 and 40mm.

The DRACO is a remotely operated weapon station with multi-purpose role against Air, R.A.M., and Surface targets, with high performance direct or indirect fire.

The weapon station can be fitted on an 8x8 wheeled platforms, for combat support operations or convoy defence, or on shelter for point defence.

The main armament consists of a 76mm/62 gun with an automatic ammunition loading system, electrically controlled for elevation and traversing, stabilized in elevation, with high rate of fire. The main armament and the automatic loading system are fully compatible with all in service 76mm rounds and also with 76mm DART guided ammunition.

The ammunition loading system is based on a drum, in oscillating mass, with 12 ready-to-fire rounds. The 12 rounds can be of different types and ammunition's selection can be performed during firing. The drum can be reloaded automatically, from a magazine in the back of the turret.

The Draco weapon station turret is fitted for receiving a secondary armament composed by a 7.62mm or 12.7mm machine gun coaxially mounted.

The DRACO can be completely controlled by two Operators (The Commander and the Gunner) from a remote position, inside the hull for mobile installation or inside a protected command shelter for fixed installation.
