Magazine"International Defence Review"ArticleChristopher F. Foss "BAE Systems adopts Russian firepower for South African turret"reported that the South African Department of Corporation BAE Systems (BAE Systems Land Systems South Africa — LSSA) has developed and successfully tested the remote-controlled turret (combat unit) TRT-R30 to equip armored vehicles, the installation uses the well-known Russian 30-mm automatic gun 2A42.  

The first sample turret series TRT (Tactical Remote Turret) under the symbol TRT-25 was demonstrated in 2010 and was equipped with 25-mm automatic cannon ATK Bushmaster II gun with 260 rounds and coaxial 7.62-mm M240 machine gun with 1,000 rounds of ammunition. This plant, now called TRT-B25 (B — from Bushmaster) has been successfully tested on a number of armored vehicles, including BAE Systems LSSA RG41 WACV (with the wheel formula 8×8) and RG34 (4×4) armored personnel carrier and Renault Trucks Defense VAB Mk III (6×6) .

However, the general trend in the demands of customers today is the use of guns all the more power, so the BAE Systems LSSA has developed a version of the TRT turret with a 30mm automatic cannon in two versions — TRT-N30 (N — from NATO) with a 30 mm cannon ATK Mk 44 Bushmaster III, and TRT-R30 (R — from Russian) with a 30-mm gun 2A42. Selection of the Russian guns to the prevalence and the prevalence of low-cost 2A42 cannon and ammunition 30h165 mm to her. In addition, sales of guns ATK is limited by U.S. export restrictions. In both cases, gun paired with a 7.62-mm machine gun (including type FCT).

Turrets TRT-N30 and TRT-R30 are similar in design and equipped with the system clock surveillance and fire control. Installation and is fully stabilized remote, control by the operator of the machine body. Depending on the version, the sights of the system can also be fully or partially stabilized. Unit weight ranges from 900 to 1800 kg — depending on the type of weapons, ammunition and the level of reservation turret.

Another version of the TRT-R30 is a turret TRT-R30MK with additional installation of Russian anti-tank "Competition" or "Kornet-E" or anti-tank South African Denel Ingwe.

Turret TRT-R30 in the variant with partial sight stabilization is reported to have "demonstrated to potential customers" in the Middle East on an armored vehicle BAE Systems LSSA iKlwa 6×6, which is a modernization of the famous South African armored Ratel. The second prototype TRT-R30 with a fully stabilized sighting system was successfully tested on an armored vehicle BAE Systems LSSA RG41 WACV.

TRT-sample turret R30MK with two additional launchers, anti-tank "Kornet-E" earlier this year, has been demonstrated in a group of Tawazun developed in the UAE armored vehicle Nimr Multi Role Combat Vehicle (MECV) c 6×6, which is the next version of the famous car Nimr. TRT-R30MK turret is located at the rear of the machine and the operator sits in the cab next to the driver. Spare four ATGM "Kornet-E" are in a combat pack in the back of the machine. It is reported that Nimr MECV with this turret has passed extensive testing ekspluatatsiionnye and firing in the army UAE.
