LONDON (BNS): BAE Systems has been awarded a contract to produce and deliver four 57 Mk3 Naval Guns to the Mexican Navy.

The 57 Mk3 gun can fire four rounds per second and can switch immediately between ammunition types to deliver seamless targeting of air, land, and sea-based threats and provide superb survivability and tactical freedom at all levels of conflict.

"This contract award further strengthens our strong position in the naval guns market," Lena Gillström, managing director of Weapon Systems, Sweden, at BAE Systems, was quoted as saying in the company news release.

In addition to Mexico, the 57 Mk3 is also in service with Navies and Coast Guards in the United States, Canada, Sweden, Finland, and Malaysia.

Series production of the systems will begin soon, with gun deliveries beginning in 2015 and continuing through 2017. Final assembly will take place at BAE Systems' facility in Karlskoga, Sweden.
