Leonardo has unveiled a naval gun mount system designed to integrate with small and fast vessels built for patrol operations.
The company said Monday it showcased the OTO Marlin 40 system for the first time at the ongoing Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference in Qatar.
Marlin 40 is equipped with a 4,630-pound remotely controlled gun that works to fire multipurpose programmable fused ammunition.
Leonardo designed the system to aid naval customers in anti-missile defense, anti-aircraft warfare and ship-to-ship engagement operations.
The naval turret employs a fully-digital configurable architecture that can operate through a combat management system/fire control system or with an autonomous control technology.
Leonardo has delivered more than 850 40-millimeter naval gun mounts to 30 naval organizations globally.
