General Dynamics Wins Contract for MK46 Gun Weapon Systems Production

SHARE

US: The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) has recently awarded General Dynamics Land Systems a USD 26.2 million contract for the production of MK46 Modification (Mod) 2 Gun Weapon Systems (GWS) for use on Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), and Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) ships. The MK46 30mm Naval Weapon System is an all-weather, day/night, fully stabilised weapon system. Its lightweight, modular and compact size makes it an ideal candidate for numerous anti-surface and anti-air defense applications. The systems family of turrets represents a balance of lethality, performance, reliability and versatility, and it is one of the most cost-effective medium-caliber weapon systems.
