Oerlikon Searanger® 20: 20mm Remote Controlled Gun Station

The Oerlikon Searanger 20 is a high-precision, stabilised 20mm remote-controlled gun station designed for mounting on any type of boat or ship.

The Oerlikon Searanger 20 is a high-precision, stabilised 20mm remote-controlled gun station designed for mounting on any type of boat or ship. Apart from its use on light patrol and combat boats, this medium calibre, fast-firing gun is an ideal complement to current automated weapon systems on larger vessels and plays an important role in close-range defence.

The gun is remote controlled from a gunner station. The modular sensor unit is equipped with state-of-the-art electro-optical sensors and a video tracking unit.

Due to the integrated stabilisation and ballistics computation, target engagement is simple and effective. The integrated high-precision 20mm Oerlikon Cannon KAE is a very reliable weapon with a high rate of fire and excellent precision. It is simple to operate and maintain, while the belted ammunition feed contains up to 200 rounds ready to fire.
