Got this via shoulder-tap from a long-time Timawan / DefensePH member:

44 units to be installed with RCWS
5 units to be installed with 81mm mounted mortar system

Reportedly the .50 cal. The Bushmasters are called “unmanned turrets” rather than RCWS.

Photo c/o Light Armored Division website circa 2015. They've been studying the self-propelled 81mm mortar concept for a while now.
