57-mm Mk 110 Naval Gun System

Source: BAE system

The Mk 110 Naval Gun system delivers high rates of fire with extreme accuracy against surface, airborne and shore-based threats with proven effective 6-mode programmable 57-mm Mk 295 ammunition. Sailors are able to respond quickly and effectively to eliminate all types of threats.

The 57-mm Mk 110 naval gun system is more lethal and has a higher rate-of-fire than any competing system. Linked with a digital fire control system, the 57-mm Mk 110 fires automatic salvos at up to 220 rounds per minute. Servo-controlled electro hydraulic gun laying subsystems provide robust endurance and extreme pointing accuracy, even in high sea-state conditions.

The highly compact and lightweight Mk 110 requires minimal deck penetration and space below deck for ease in integration to a variety of hull types of 150 tons or more. The system requires minimal manpower for operation and maintenance, and affords unparalleled availability through high level redundancy, built-in test functions, ready component access and onboard tools and spares.

The Mk 110 is based on Bofors Defence 57-mm Mk 3 naval gun, and once in full-rate production, will be produced at BAE Systems' facility in Louisville, Kentucky. The naval gun system builds on successful 57-mm naval gun service in the fleets of 14 naval forces worldwide. For new ship applications calling for reduced-signature characteristics, the 57-mm Mk 110 weather shield design can be tailored to meet specific platform signature requirements.
