April 24, 2020 Updated: June 20, 2023

Multi-station Armed Black Hawk Capability Reimagined with Fulcrum Concepts’ CLAW.

Fulcrum Concepts, LLC, a leading provider of responsive and comprehensive weapons system integration capabilities, announced that it will provide their innovative multi-station CLAW for Armed Black Hawk helicopters. The CLAW represents Fulcrum Concepts ongoing commitment to offering comprehensive solutions for a variety of weaponized air, land, or sea platforms.

For the first time, Armed Black Hawk customers are not forced to choose between a single station or dual station wing. This operational flexibility is provided to CLAW customers in a single product offering that will support a diverse mixture of weaponry to include M230, 2.75” rockets, Hellfire, GP-19, HMP-400 as well as a mixture of smaller systems. Weapons may be direct mounted to wings or secured with a variety of available ejector racks depending on customer requirements.

At nearly 400 pounds lighter than comparable systems, the CLAW is designed to allow users to rapidly reconfigure from a “slick” assault platform to an Armed 2-or-4 station configuration within minutes. The lightweight aluminum design allows infinite repairability at any level without any requirement for special tooling or technicians. The CLAW truly represents a powerful solution for the Armed Black Hawk in terms of rapid integration and increased reliability.
