Euronaval 2022: Nexter exhibits its new naval turrets

Nexter, a reference naval turret and ammunition manufacturer, will be present on stand H10
• Nexter and Thales unveil the final design of the RAPIDFire turret;
• Nexter presents its new NARWHAL turret equipped with MBDA's AKERON pod;
• Nexter Arrowtech, European leader in naval ammunition, exhibits its wide range of innovative products.

RAPIDFire: a state-of-the-art system to revive the French naval and anti-aircraft artillery industry
Nexter's flagship product at Euronaval is the RAPIDFire turret, whose new design is presented on 1:1 scale. This concentrate of innovations will become a reference in the field of medium-calibre naval turrets.
Adapted to low-layer ground-to-air defense, and in particular to anti-drone warfare, the RAPIDFire protects ships, land units or bases against a wide range of threats: jet skis, boats, loitering ammunition, UAVs, light aircraft or missiles up to 4,000 meters away.

Expansion of the turret offer
Nexter presents the NARWHAL 20mm remote controlled turret reinforced by the MBDA AKERON missile launch pod. The integration of this innovative solution demonstrates the modularity of our systems.
In addition, thanks to its experience in land and naval turrets, Nexter now offers naval versions of its remotely operated land turrets, including the ARX 25, which is equipped with the VBCI's 25mm gun.

European leader in naval ammunition
Supplier to 60 armies worldwide with a catalogue of more than 250 references, Nexter Arrowtech is presenting its 20 to 127mm ammunition range for naval turrets at Euronaval. As Europe's leading naval munitions manufacturer, Nexter Arrowtech is demonstrating its ability to develop game changing ammunition for high-intensity conflicts.
For instance, a fuse for 40mm L70 ammunition with real-time inductive programming will be displayed on the stand. This new technology considerably increases the operational capabilities of existing weapons, particularly in the anti-aircraft and anti-drone fields.
