M134D adds firepower to Kraken craft
The M134D will be combined with subsystems from Thales and MSI-DS — other recently announced partners for KTG.
As a result, KTG stated, ensure all K50 effectors will be ‘fully systems-integrated, CMS-led and precisely-aimed for maximum operational efficacy’.
KTG added that the rate of fire and accuracy of the M134D ‘is a true force multiplier’ that makes the weapon ideal for the precision maritime engagement requirements of the K50
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the six-barrelled M134D is typically fed from a 3,000- or 4,400-round magazine and sold as a complete weapon system or as a component upgrade package for older M134 systems.
