The 30mm light-weight automatic gun mount

Mission

The 30mm AK-306 light-weight automatic gun mount is a close-range weapon system designed for self-defence of warships against aircraft, helicopters and other air strike weapons, as well as for engagement of pinpoint surface targets and drifting mines, unsheltered enemy manpower and weapon emplacements ashore. AK-306 is controlled by OPU-1 optical sight.

Features

  • replacement option for vintage AK-230 gun mounts on small-displacement ships;
  • AO-18L light-weight six-barrel gun with an electrically-driven revolving cluster;
  • reduced weight of the gun mount (by nearly a half comparing to AK-230M) thanks to light alloys used in load-bearing components, ammunition feed system and protective elements.
