Platt Swing Mount

The Platt Swing Mount was developed by Platt for the Australian Army's Light Armoured Vehicle project to provide a wide range GPMG platform for use on the LAV-25 turret.

The Platt Swing Mount can now be found on a myriad of vehicles around the world. We have supplied over 17,000 of these systems worldwide.
