Under a contract with the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA), a state arms procurement body controlled by the defense ministry, Hanwha Systems said it would deliver 14,000 PAS-18K thermal optic aiming devices by November 2025. The PAS-18K can accurately observe the battlefield even in bad weather situations such as night fog.
The device can be linked with a future personal combat system and effectively overpower massed troops. "We will do our best to supply it at the right time as the aiming device can become a key equipment that can improve the accuracy rate of shooting and strengthen the combat power and survival of soldiers," Kim Young-ho, head of Hanwha System's command and control business, said in a statement on November 2.
The 5.56mm K15 gun weighing 7.2 kilograms was manufactured by S&T Motiv to replace the old K3 light machine gun weighing 6.85 kg. It features improved accuracy, reliability, easy operation, and a smoother butt recoil plate to reduce the shooting impact. Soldiers can adjust the length of K15 according to their physical condition.
