Leonardo Presents Its New OTO Marlin 40 Naval Defence System
The MARLIN 40 is a state-of-the-art expertise naval gun system aimed to substantiate the Leonardo’s management within the 40 mm calibers section due to its excellent performances appropriate for Anti-Floor Warfare (ASuW) in addition to Anti-Air Warfare (AAW). Subsequently, it’s efficient with completely different threats varieties, corresponding to helicopters, uncrewed aerial programs and anti-ship missiles, due to its excessive accuracy, its functionality to fireplace good ammunition and a spread of just about 5 km. The MARLIN 40 options mild weight and compact dimensions such to make it installable on all kinds of floor vessels as major or secondary armament and permit ease of integration with present Fight Administration Techniques and gear.
The MARLIN 40 makes use of a recoil-actuated machine gun, fed by an computerized system in a position to handle two various kinds of rounds selectable as a operate of the particular risk. The MARLIN 40 can hearth all sorts of 40L70 ammunitions, together with these with programmable fuzes. The MARLIN 40 is supplied with highly effective servosystems, stabilized in each azimuth and elevation, and a stealth defend to reduce the RCS and permit the operation in probably the most extreme environments. Low weight, no deck penetration, flexibility and reliability are simply among the options of its structure. Its state-of-the-art totally digital digital permits a easy integration with all of the Fight Administration Techniques and Fireplace Management Techniques obtainable available on the market.
With the intention to meet all prospects’ wants, the system has been conceived in a fundamental model “Remotely Managed” (RC), which might be managed by an exterior Firing Management System and within the superior model “Impartial Line Of Sight” (ILOS). The latter is a highly-effective precision-fire system, which might be operated autonomously through an area management console along with be totally managed by the Fight Administration System.

It’s the results of in depth expertise within the manufacture of superior naval defence programs outfitted with stat-of-art electromechanics and software program applied sciences, in a position to comply technological progress and market developments. The Marlin 40 supplies superior efficiency for difficult missions corresponding to anti-missile defence, anti-aircraft warfare and ship-to-ship engagement. The gun encompasses a dry weight of solely 2,100 kg in its remotely managed model, excessive maneuverability (the barrel can transfer at 120°/s due to highly effective and correct servo-systems), and the power to fireplace multi-purpose programmable fused ammunition.
