IDEX/NAVDEX 2017: Rheinmetall Debuts SEA SNAKE-27

Multifaceted effector for maritime applications

For the first time ever, at IDEX 2017 on stand #09-A10, Rheinmetall is showcasing its SEA SNAKE-27, a versatile 27mm revolver gun designed specifically for maritime applications. 

The SEA SNAKE-27 is based on the tried-and-tested MLG-27NG light naval gun, which is also on display at IDEX. A gas-operated design, this automatic revolver cannon fires 27mm x145 ammunition.

Featuring an adaptable multi-mode, multi-target tracker sensor unit, the SEA SNAKE-27 is an excellent all-round effector for short- and very short-range engagements, making it the ideal answer to asymmetric threats, whether employed as a suppression weapon or in high-precision single-shot mode.

Equipped with its own opto-electronic sensor suite, this remotely operated, fully stabilised defensive system can be employed either in standalone mode or integrated into a ship’s central command and control system. Its high rate of fire – more than 1,600 rounds per minute – and high accuracy combine to make it a formidable weapon system, with a maximum effective range of up to 4,000 metres. As an option, THE SEA SNAKE can also be fitted with a high-energy laser effector.

The SEA SNAKE-27 features a low silhouette. Light, robust and easy to integrate, the system can be installed without having to penetrate the upper deck of the vessel.
