Leveraging off the widespread success of its combat-proven Swing Mount, W&E Platt has designed a new Twin Mount that delivers twice the firepower in a lightweight, robust and utterly reliable design.

More about this product

Suitable for installation on a wide range of light and medium weight tactical vehicles, a spectrum which takes in lightweight unarmoured special operations vehicles to full-size wheeled and tracked armoured troop carriers, reconnaissance and convoy escort vehicles - the Platt Twin Mount accommodates two MAG-58 / M240 7.62mm general purpose machine guns to vastly improve firepower and achieve greater target effect in a reduced engagement time. The ability to respond quickly with truly decisive firepower is key to overcoming asymmetric threats.

The Platt Twin Mount fits standard NATO medium machine gun tripods and is a drop-in replacement for most conventional 7.62mm machine gun mounts. It is also
compatible with all Platt Ring Mounts.

With a reduced mass and low centre-of-gravity, the Platt Twin Mount maintains the ease of use and operability for which Platt weapon mounts are renowned. The design also enables the gunner to adjust point of impact of each gun independently.
