The conference involves representatives of the countries operating the OHP frigates who share their experience related to operational use of the vessel. This year’s IFWG meeting involves delegates from the United States of America, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Spain, Philippines and Nigeria.
The AM-35 cannon based vessel gun destined to act against air threats flying at low and medium altitudes was being presented by PIT-RADWAR during the meeting.
The system is based on the KDA cannon that is being license manufactured at HSW. Originally the technology was acquired with the Loara AAA system in mind.
