The MLG25 can be integrated into all kinds of ships and boats with or without having to penetrate the deck. Moreover, its light, compact design means that it can be installed in a wide variety of locations on board. The system is remotely operated from a gunner control station. The mount is equipped with day and night vision sensors enabling automatic target tracking as well as manual control of the MLG25.

The Frangible APDS-T cartridge provides enhanced lethality and increased survivability for infantry fighting vehicles in air defense. Featuring improved on-target performance and low time of flight, the cartridge provides greater kill capability against maneuvering, multilayered targets such as fighter aircraft and helicopters. This round has a well-proven design and verified production processes (same as M791 APDS-T). Its low time of flight gives it a higher POH/POK than MP, SAPHEI, or HE rounds versus selected targets.
