The remotely controlled air defence gun is considered a flexible solution against multifaceted targets. ntegrated into the 35mm platform are a tracking/sensor unit with X-band tracking radar and electro-optical sensors as well as electronic warfare components. This enables swift, autonomous engagement of externally assigned targets.



Two soldiers are required for the preparation of the Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk3. Being remotely controlled increases the safety of personnel.

The Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk3 can receive and process target data from 2D and 3D search radars. Integrated sensors and a fire control computer give the system an autonomous surveillance and target engagement capability. It can be controlled from a higher-echelon command post or via an operator station to which up to eight guns can be connected.

The tried-and-tested 35mm x 228 automatic cannon delivers compelling firepower and high precision. Coupled with Rheinmetall’s proprietary AHEAD airburst technology, the Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk3 is extremely effective against practically all air and ground targets.

At Eurosatory 2016 Rheinmetall is presenting its new air defence gun as a possible effector for the Oerlikon Skynex – the Group’s new design for a fully networked, future ground-based air defence system.
