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.
