DT’s video guru Glenn Anderson has been a busy man lately and this is his latest handiwork. It’s BAE Systems’ Mk 38 chain gun used by the U.S. Navy. The newest version of the gun is remotely controlled from the Combat Information Center or the bridge of a ship and features an electro-optical/infrared camera package and a laser range finder. All this lets the gun fend off small vessels without exposing crew members to the elements or enemy fire.
