SAHA Expo Defence and Aerospace Exhibition opened its doors. Many Turkish manufacturers are exhibiting their solutions.


Ermaksan, the main subcontractor of the Turkish MKE 76 mm indigenous naval gun system, is exhibiting its 40 mm naval gun turret solution during the event. Kaan-SNG-40/70T system offers similar capabilities to the Italian 40 mm Dardo close-in weapon system, thanks to L70 barrels. Dardo is also serving in the inventory of the Turkish Navy. Kaan is equipped with a stealth cupola to reduce the radar cross-section area of the vessel. The system is also lighter than its Italian equivalent.

 

40 mm close-in weapon systems offer better survivability to the platform thanks to their longer range and shell effectiveness. Solutions are also effective against asymmetrical threats from non-dangerous ranges to the vessel. Guns can also be employed against coastal targets, surface vessels and floating mines with a highly effective wide range of ammunition.
