DIMDEX: Leonardo unveils new OTO Marlin 40 naval turret

Italian-based defense contractor Leonardo has unveiled its new OTO Marlin 40 naval turret at the 2018 edition of Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX) in Qatar.

The new OTO Marlin 40 is a system designed for fast, lightweight vessels and suited for anti-missile defense, anti-aircraft warfare and ship-to-ship engagement.

As explained by Leonardo, the gun features a dry weight of 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.

The manufacturer further said that the system is fully digital and can be configured as either fully slaved to a Combat Management System/Fire Control System (CMS/FCS) or with autonomous local control by means of an independent optical sight and ballistic computation.

Installation and integration procedures are straightforward, Leonardo added noting that no deck penetration was required for the installation.
