Maximizing shipboard defense against small, fast, and agile surface and air threats.
The 30mm Machine Gun System (MGS) offers superior capability in defending against multiple threats, including unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The 30mm MGS incorporates an on-mount electro-optical sensor (EOS) with a state-of-the-art fire control system to optimize effective surveillance and engage enemy targets in all weather conditions, day or night.
The gun is equipped with a highly reliable Bushmaster chain gun and its full complement of high explosive and air burst ammunition, and can fire all U.S. NATO standard 30mm by 173mm ammunition with selectable rates of fire. The capability to engage close-in air threats at greater than 65 degrees elevation coupled with the air-bursting munition offers outstanding probability of hit and mission success!
