The 12.7mm Remote Firing Control System was developed for use with naval vessels and is operated in close-quarter defense situations on patrol boats, gunboats, and battleships. The system is attached to a K6 machine gun on the exterior of the vessel and is remotely controlled from within the interior of the vessel. The equipment enables automatic tracking and, when necessary, firing even while mobile. Hanwha Defense has successfully achieved vessel integration for future gunboats and harbor patrol boats for the first time in the domestic market, and these are currently being utilized in the field by the Korean Naval Forces. Accurate automatic targeting of enemy threats is possible even while stationary.
