  • Ingenious solutions

One of innovative solutions implemented in the system is the independent water-evaporating cooling system of the barrel cluster. The gun is also equipped with a barrel cluster jacket reducing the effect of the muzzle blast on the antenna post. The ammunition feed system is linkless, driven by barrel cluster.
