Italian Company Leonardo showcases OTO VULCANO a family of unguided (BER) and guided (GLR) ammunition designed for the 76mm, 127mm naval guns and 155mm land artillery systems at Euronaval Online, the digital edition of Euronaval 2020, International naval defense and maritime security industry exhibition.

SAAB exhibits products and solutions for maritime defense IMDEX 2019 925 001The VULCANO is a family of unguided (BER) and guided (GLR) ammunition designed for the 76mm and 127mm naval guns.

The OTO VULCANO 127mm ammunition is conceived to give the 127/54 C and the OTO 127/64 LW Leonardo Defence Systems Naval Guns the capability to meet any present and future requirement for Precision Naval Fire Support and Long Range engagement of Surface Targets. OTO VULCANO 127mm BER maintains the anti-air role as well.

The OTO VULCANO 127mm rounds capitalize on new and emerging technology-based upon a fin-stabilized airframe with canard control for terminal guidance; mechanical interfaces are the same as standard 127mm ammunition.

Three types of Vulcano ammunition are available including Ballistic Extended Range (BER) unguided multirole ammunition with multi-function programmable fuze and a range of up to 60 km, the Guided Long Range (GLR)ammunition with IR sensor for anti-ship role with a range of up to 80 km and the IMU+GPS autonomous guidance for precise NFS actions (a Semi Active Laser sensor can be fitted as option) with a range of up to 100 km. 

All the systems needed to operate OTO VULCANO 127mm ammunition are integrated into the OTO 127/64 LW Control Console and no mechanical modification to the OTO 127/64 LW gun is required.

The OTO VULCANO 127mm is fully compatible with in-service OTO 127/54 C guns with the addition of a module with the functions of programmer for ammunition’s fuze and guidance system and Mission Planner and Executer for Naval Fire Support both in stand-alone mode and in interaction with ship’s Network Centric Systems with the role of choosing firing solutions, selection of ammunition, definition of trajectories and firing sequences, ballistic computations etc.
