General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has won a $25.5 million contract for the production of the MK 46 MOD 2 Gun Weapon System (GWS) for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and Landing Platform Dock (LPD) programs, along with fiscal 2019 spares requirement.

The contract is for the procurement of two 30mm MK 46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LCS Surface Warfare Mission module, two 30mm MK 46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LPD-29, two 30mm MK 46 MOD 2 GWSs for the LPD-30, and associated spare parts, US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The 30mm MK 46 MOD 2 GWS is a remotely operated system that uses a high velocity cannon for shipboard self-defense against small, high-speed surface targets.

Work is expected to be completed by September 2021.
