|Narwhal Remote Weapon System installed on a French Navy FREMM Normandie|
Narwhal consists of a gyrostabilised mounting armed with a 20mm cannon, a day camera and a fire-control system which is remotely-controlled from a control panel enabling system operation, target acquisition and tracking and fire opening by the operator
The Narwhal system was ordered when first of class Aquitaine was too close to completion and not compatible anymore. The first French Navy FREMM to be fitted with the Narwhal is Normandie. First of class Aquitaine will get its two Narwhal systems during the first major refit of the Frigate, expected in 2017. Ultimately, all FREMMs will have a Narwhal 20mm gun capability.
