Polish PIT-RADWAR company  is developing a new «Noteс» towed anti-aircraft gun with 35 mm cannons. That was reported by www.defence24.com.

The «Noteс» anti-aircraft artillery system using the 35 mm cannons will be unveiled at Poland’s MSPO exhibition. 

The anti-aircraft system offered by the PIT-RADWAR company is based on a flexible battery structure, including single 35 mm cannons and command and guidance systems. The 35 mm cannons are offered in two variants, one of which, featuring an optoelectronic sensor, has a capacity of destroying targets independently, with the use of the autonomous mode.

The system constitutes a result of the development works undertaken within the framework of the former Loara programme which was finalized back in 2009. It is, above all, offered for the Polish Navy, as a successor for the domestically developed “Blenda” system, which was designed and created back in the 1990s. The new system may also be used by other armed services, for the purpose of point-defending the important infrastructure from air-strikes, helicopter attacks, cruise missiles or UAV systems.

Let us recall the fact that “Blenda” came in a form of a battery of 4 S-60 57 mm cannons, fitted with an automated control system and coupled with the Polish WD-95 command vehicles with electro-optical seekers. The system was designed to be operated together with the Rega-3/4 command vehicles and PIT-RADWAR N-22(3D) radars. Eight batteries of this type are being used by the Polish Navy now. Both the observation/targeting, as well as the tracking systems, along with most of electronics and the fire control system, came straight from the “Loara” programme.
