Leonardo presented its new Marlin 40 naval gun mount for the first time in Doha, Qatar.
According to Leonardo; lightweight, flexible and offering high performance, the Marlin 40 is the ideal choice for small and fast vessels involved in patrol operations
The new OTO Marlin 40 naval turret has been designed for Navies, which are increasingly engaged in patrol operations using fast, lightweight vessels, but still require high-performance equipment.
The Marlin 40 provides superior performance for challenging missions such as anti-missile defence, anti-aircraft warfare and ship-to-ship engagement. The gun features a dry weight of only 2,100 kg in its remotely controlled version, high maneuverability (the barrel can move at 120°/s thanks to powerful and accurate servo-systems), and the ability to fire multi-purpose programmable fused ammunition.
More than 850 of Leonardo’s 40mm naval gun mounts are in service with 30 Navies worldwide
