  • 127/64 LW Vulcano Naval Gun System

    This is one bad-ass gun! Oto does make quality stuff though.

    The transfer of Vulcano technology (155mm & 127mm) to the 76mm caliber creates a new family of long range precision ammunition, both guided and unguided. Thus the 76 gun system is a leap ahead of the competition, dramatically increasing its already outstanding artillery performances in the roles of Naval Gunfire Support (NGS) and Anti
    Surface Warfare.

    The effective range of the gun is improved beyond the industry standard with the extra precision given by Vulcano Technology: subcaliber, GPS-IMU guidance and IR or SAL Terminal Sensor, as well as Terminal Lethality improvements.

    Any existing 76 gun can fire the new ammo Vulcano 76mm family with an adaptation kit, according to the level of required performances. The new 76, with additional embedded features, will have multi-ammo selection and be fully compatible with the Strales configuration.






    The 127/64 Light Weight Vulcano will be mounted on the future German Navy F125 frigates

    Looks like a cool piece of machinery. I wonder how reliable it is after sending 25+ rounds downrange in rapid fire mode.
    Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years...

      Good question...I also wonder if the fire control system is capable of directing the rounds on multiple targets round to round, without missing a beat.
