Platt Lightweight Skate Mount

Leveraging off the highly successful Platt Swing Mount, the Platt Slide Mount is a lightweight and versatile mount designed for installation on the dash structure of open-topped soft-skinned vehicles. Featuring a unique rail slide mounting, the Platt Slide Mount is suitable for vehicle commanders/co-drivers where a quick-reaction defensive and offensive fire support capability is required.

Able to accept the MAG-58/M240 7.62mm medium machine gun or Minimi/M249 5.56mm light machine gun, the Platt Slide Mount caters for both left and right-handed gunners. It is fitted to the Australian Army’s new G-Wagon 6x6 Surveillance Reconnaissance Vehicles.
