AWEIL signs Rs. 274.76 crore contract with Cochin Shipyard to equip Next Generation Missile Vessels (NGMV) of the Indian Navy with Ak-630 CIWS

AWEIL, or Advanced Weapons and Equipment India Ltd, a prominent player in the Indian defense and aerospace sector, has inked a substantial deal valued at Rs. 274.76 crore with Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL). This pivotal agreement entails the domestic manufacturing and supply of 12 units of the 30mm AK-630 Naval Gun Mounts for the Next Generation Missile Vessels (NGMV) project of the Indian Navy.

Empowering Next-Gen Warfare: AWEIL’s Strategic Role

AWEIL’s collaboration with CSL in the NGMV project signifies a crucial step towards India’s self-reliance in defense manufacturing. By producing these critical gun mounts domestically, the nation takes strides towards reducing reliance on foreign imports, bolstering its indigenous defense capabilities.

The Versatile 30mm AK-630 Naval Gun Mount

Designed for multifaceted roles, the medium-caliber AK-630 Naval Gun Mount is tailored for:

1. Air Defense

Engaging aerial threats, including anti-ship missiles, aircraft, and helicopters, with precision and rapid-fire capabilities.

2. Surface Defense

Countering small-sized surface ships, drifting mines, and shore-based targets, enhancing the vessel’s defensive capabilities.

3. Enhanced Situational Awareness

Providing crucial fire support and illumination during operations, ensuring heightened situational awareness for effective decision-making.

Precision and Effectiveness in Combat

The AK-630’s 30mm rapid-fire cannon, coupled with an advanced fire control system, ensures unparalleled precision and effectiveness in diverse combat scenarios.

Strengthening Naval Firepower and Defense

The integration of these advanced gun mounts into the NGMV vessels marks a significant leap in augmenting firepower and defensive capabilities. This aligns seamlessly with the Indian Navy’s modernization plans, equipping it with cutting-edge platforms and weaponry to safeguard maritime interests not only in the Indian Ocean Region but also beyond.

AWEIL’s groundbreaking contract to supply the AK-630 Naval Gun Mounts for the NGMV project underscores India’s commitment to self-reliance and indigenous defense capabilities. This strategic move contributes to the nation’s broader goal of fortifying its naval prowess and securing maritime interests on a global scale.
