Type 45 Destroyers

Modern ships must be able to operate in different levels of conflict; from peacekeeping operations where the gun is used for firing warning shots, law enforcement missions against pirates, smugglers and terrorists, and finally, full war conditions where the gun is a vital part of the ship’s self-defence against hostile ships, attack aircraft, anti-ship missiles and shore targets. In the littoral scenario the gun must have the capability to engage threats that are impossible to engage with conventional gun systems.
Type 45 at sea

Survivability in such an environment requires an extremely flexible weapon system. The low weight and compact Bofors 40 Mk4 gun system with its high rate of fire and capability to switch between optimized ammunition types, including the intelligent 40 mm 3P (Pre-Fragmented, Programmable, Proximity-Fused) all-target ammunition, provides high survivability and tactical freedom at all levels of conflict.
