The Support Weapons Sighting System program of the British Armed Forces has entered into a contract to procure Romeo8Ts, Juliet3s and Juliet4s from SIG Sauer Electro-Optics. “This combination of the Romeo and Juliet products chosen for the Support Weapons Systems Sighting Program by SIG Sauer Electro-Optics will easily increase the effective range and accuracy at greater distances for operators in both day and night operations,” said Andy York, president of SIG Sauer Electro-Optics. “Further, the SIG designed system is completely versatile and will easily compensate for bullet drop at various distances and designed to withstand the rigors of the 5.56 and 7.62 lightweight or medium machine gun platforms.”

The SIG Sauer Romeo8T is a 1×38 mm full-size red-dot sight with an exceptionally large field of view and a rectangular lens in a ruggedized housing with an integral steel shroud to minimize risk of damage. The optic is designed and tested to withstand extreme conditions and will maintain zero under the most hostile temperature differentials.

The Juiiet3 and Juliet4 magnifiers extend effective range and augment the red-dot performance with crystal-clear optics in a ruggedized aluminum housing and a flip-to-side mount. Combining any SIG Sauer Juliet series magnifier with a Romeo red dot allows hits on targets, with ease, beyond 200 yards. The Juliet3 offers 3x magnification and the Juliet4 4x magnification.

The Juliet4 was introduced at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in spring of 2017. It, like the Juliet3, features the company’s PowerCam 90-degree mount, which allows owners to transition quickly and efficiently between long distance shots and CQB.

Volume, value and terms of the contract were not made available in the announcement this week. All three optics are also available commercially to gun owners in the United States.
