The Twin 40L70 Compact is a high performance naval mount that is easy to install in any type of ship, providing:
- high rate of fire (600 rds/min) very effective with proximity-fuzed ammunition;
- good availability of ready-to-fire ammunition for automatic firing;
- maximum reliability;
- advanced design resulting in complete automation, readiness for operation, and low maintenance requirements;
- complete remote control and high servo-system performance;
- maximum firing accuracy and low reaction time;
- operability in NBC conditions.
The Twin 40L70 Compact provides effectiveness and reliability especially under the most challenging operations, such as:
- anti-missile defence (subsonic sea-skimmers);
- anti-aircraft defence;
- ship-to-ship engagements.
The Twin 40L70 Compact is in service with more than 20 Navies and is available in two versions:
- Type A: with a 736 round magazine and Type B: with a 444 round magazine.
- Type A and Type B can both be installed above-deck or with the magazines below-deck.
Below-deck installation ensures the highest operational safety for loaders and servicing personnel.
