​Recently, the Polish Company Huta Stalowa Wola S.A (HSW) has conducted trial tests with its Remote Controlled Turret System (RCTS-30) with double SPIKE anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) mounted on a Rosomak 8×8 armored personnel carrier (APC). RCTS-30 has confirmed a successful firing of SPIKE LR missiles. Five missiles were launched during the test event. The test event finalized yet another phase of the RCTS-30 turret test programme, related to testing of the weapons (ATK 44 Bushmaster II S cannon, 7.62 mm UKM 2000 GPMG and Spike ATGM).

The RCTS-30 (Zdalnie Sterowanego Systemu Wieżowego, ZSSW-30) is armed with one 30mm ATK-44 chain gun, a 7.62mm caliber UKM-2000C coaxial machine gun, and two Spike-LR ATGM launchers stored in a container which is mounted on the right side of the turret. The turret is also equipped with a PCO GOC-1 Nike optronic system that includes thermal vision sight, a laser range finder, and an external light sensor. The Rosomak with unmanned turret ZSSW-30, will offer more survivability for the crew and as well as more firepower with the anti-tank guided missiles.
