BAE Systems has won $46.7 million modification contract to provide four upgraded and overhauled Mk 45 mod 4 five-inch/62 caliber gun mounts to US Navy.

This modification is to fulfill specified requirements and technical performance requirements for the Mk 45 mod 4 gun system requirements, the US Department of Defense said in a statement last Friday.

The Mk 45 gun system provides an effective weapon for anti-surface warfare, naval surface fire support and anti-air warfare missions on DDG 51-class destroyers and CG 47-class cruisers.

Work is expected to be completed by January 2021.
