Seafuture 2021: Leonardo showcases Lionfish 12.7 Ultra Light naval gun.

| 2021

During Seafuture 2021, Leonardo’s stand is divided into two areas – Air and Water (the latter in turn divided into surface and underwater). It will showcase systems capable of accompanying the evolution of increasingly multi-domain operations, thanks to the development of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, automation, data processing and information management. The firm showcases also the Lionfish 12.7 Ultra Light naval gun.

The LIONFISH® 12.7 Ultralight is a remotely-controlled small-caliber naval gun system that stands out for the lightest weight, the smallest deck interface and the best trade-off between performances and price.

The LIONFISH® 12.7 Ultralight can be efficiently used onboard small surface vessel, thanks to its physical characteristics, for border control, maritime traffic interdiction, and self-protection as well as inland applications.

The LIONFISH® 12.7 Ultralight is fitted with a 12.7 mm machine gun feed by a 250 ready-to-fire rounds magazine, compatible with a wide variety of 12.7 x 99 NATO standard ammunitions such as: AP, API, APT, APIT, M33 ball.

The aiming system is fully stabilized in elevation and azimuth by means of powerful servo-systems in closed-loop with both two independent gyros and two tachometers for redundancy.

The LIONFISH® 12.7 Ultralight is remotely controlled through its own Local Control Console and it is able to autonomously determine the stabilized firing coordinates by performing ballistic and target trajectory calculations.
