Figure 6-17.–The 5"/54 Mk 45 gun loading system, major components. to   quickly   and   accurately   identify   the   various ammunition  types. 76-MM MK 75 GUN The Mk 75 gun (fig. 6-18) is a fully automated, remotely controlled gun mount that stows, aims, and fires  76-mm  62-caliber  ammunition.  The  76-mm system, along with the Mk 92 GFCS, is currently aboard FFG-7- and PHM-class ships. The design of the gun mount   makes   extensive   use   of   lightweight corrosion-resistant alloys and modern engineering techniques.  The  result  is  a  lightweight,  compact, fast-firing, versatile weapon. It is primarily a defensive weapon,  used  to  destroy  antiship  cruise  missiles. However, it can also be used effectively against surface and shore targets. The gun has a variable rate of fire of up to 80 rounds per minute with a range of up to 16,459 meters and a maximum altitude of 11,519 meters. The most notable innovation featured on this system is the automatic barrel cooling system. This cooling system allows sustained operation at high rates of fire without excessive barrel wear or the danger of a cookoff if a misfire  occurs. The Mk 75 gun fires a somewhat limited variety of ammunition types. The types of ammunition currently available include point detonating (PD), infrared (IR), radio frequency (RF), and blind-loaded and plugged (BL&P). 6-21
