General Dynamics receives a contract for MK46 gun weapon systems

General Dynamics has received a $25,6 million contract for the production of the MK 46 MOD 2 Gun Weapon System (GWS) for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and Landing Platform Dock (LPD) programs.

The contract is for the procurement of two 30mm MK46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LCS Surface Warfare Mission module, two 30mm MK46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LPD-29, two 30mm MK46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LPD-30, and associated spare parts.

The work is expected to be completed by September 2021.

The MK-46 GWS is a remotely operated naval gun system that uses a 30mm high velocity cannon, a forward looking infrared sensor, a low light television camera, and a laser rangefinder for shipboard self defense against small, high speed surface targets.
