US Global Aerospace Testing S.A.G.(TM) Armored Turret

Abstract:
US Global Aerospace, Inc. announced today that it has been conducting intensive live-fire testing of the company's S.A.G.(TM) ('Save A Gunner' (TM)) Turret System in a secure facility. USGA has been testing the S.A.G.(TM) Turret against 9 mm, 7.62 mm, 5.65 mm and 12.7mm/.50 caliber ammunition in both conventional military and armor piercing configurations in order to provide the highest levels of ballistic protection for US Armed Forces.

The S.A.G.(TM) Turret has been designed as a lightweight shielded turret for the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle ("HMMWV", commonly pronounced Hum-Vee). US Global is designing similar units for NATO and Coalition Forces vehicles including Land Rover and Unimog vehicles.
