Currently, RAIT 1 is actively used in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, performing various types of tasks. Most often, the tower mounts a Browning heavy machine gun on a pick-up-type vehicle with a single armor plate. The main tasks in which RAIT 1 is used are guarding convoys, clearing occupied territories, anti-aircraft defense from UAVs, evacuation of wounded soldiers and, in some cases, raids on enemy territories. The advantages of RAIT 1, noted by representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, are the ability to provide high firepower and reaction speed in suppressing the enemy's hideouts at a distance of up to 1.5 km during convoy escort. The turret can be easily reassembled from one vehicle to another. The design and high strength of the RAIT 1 tower allow it to be mounted on larger caliber weapon systems.
