BAE Systems has won a $19 million modification contract for the production of the MK38 MOD 3 Machine Gun System (MGS) and associated spares meant for the US Navy.

This contract is to fulfil specified requirements and technical performance requirements for the MK38 MOD 3 25mm MGS Ordnance Alteration and associated spares, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.

The MGS produced is derived from application of an ordnance alteration to the MK 38 MOD 1 25mm MGS. Once installed, incorporates two-axis stabilization, an improved electro-optical sight system (EOS), improved multi-function display, modified main control panel, a new main computing unit, a 7.62mm machine gun and remote control operation.

Work is expected to be completed by September 2021.
