The U.S. Navy’s Mk 38 Mod 3 Gun Weapon System is a stabilized self-defense weapon that dramatically improves ships’ self-defense capabilities. The system is equipped with both the 25mm M242 Bushmaster main gun and an option for a coaxially mounted 7.62mm Mk 52 Mod 0 automatic chain gun to cover all mission needs.
How we covered it
For this cover we used our ArmorDillo® anti-corrosion fabric for heavy duty protection while at sea. The cover-fabric is waterproof, 99.9% UV ray blocking, and provides a vapor corrosion inhibitor barrier on the
equipment that protects it from corrosion up to 95%.
The cover is a 3-piece set with:
- removable optics cover
- removable barrel sleeve
- removable body cover
- easy to install and remove
The removable optics cover allows the ship to keep the gun components protected while conducting surveillance in non-firing situations. The removable barrel sleeve allows for ease of maintenance on the barrel without removing the entire cover.
The Transhield ArmorDillo cover protects the Mk 38 Mod 3 Gun Weapon System from the harsh environments at sea including salt spray, dirt and grime, wind, and sun damage. The result for U.S. Navy ships has been a weapon system that’s mission ready when needed and requires less maintenance and corrosion-mitigation time.
