Euronaval 2016: Narwhal 20mm gun on display (video)

19th October 2016 - 12:00 GMT | by Grant Turnbull in Paris


French armament specialists Nexter is displaying its Narwhal 20mm remotely-operated naval weapon at this year's Euronaval exhibition in Paris.

There are two variants on display, one that is being displayed to potential international customers with NATO standard 30x102 ammunition, the other is displayed by the French Navy with a slightly different 20x139 ammunition configuration.

The French Navy has installed the Narwhal on several vessels including the FREMM frigates as a defensive weapon system against threats such as fast attack craft.
