ADF buys ELCAN Specter DR 1-4x

Raytheon today announced that Australia’s Department of Defence has selected their ELCAN Optical Technologies division to supply the ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4x dual-role weapon sight.

The company said the $54 million contract award followed an open competition.

ELCAN Specter® dual-field-of-view (1X and 4X) sight will replace the ADF’s standard 1.5X magnified sight on the new Enhanced F88 rifle in the Land 125 Phase 3C program.

The dual magnification provides both long-range targeting and short-range rapid aiming in a single package.

Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business Development Cameron Perry said Raytheon’s Specter DR 1-4x sight would significantly enhance the soldiers’ ability to observe and effectively engage targets.

“We look forward to delivering this critical capability to Australia’s land forces,” Mr Perry said.

As part of the contract, Raytheon Specter® DR 1-4x will begin deliveries later this year.

    A great combat scope – 1x to 4x at the flick of a lever; illuminated all be it battery powered, external range drum – and with very high quality glass – thanks to whoever re -examined the specter.
