Description: The AK-130 is a multipurpose shipborne artillery system designed for destroyers and cruisers and intended to engage sea, coastal and airborne targets including low flying missiles. This gun system was introduced in 1980 by the Soviet Navy. The AK-130-MR-184 version consists of the AK-130 weapon system and the MR-184 fire control radar system both mounted on the same turret. Besides, the AK-130 is fitted with an optical sight, laser rangefinder and TV tracking system. It was provided to Project 1155 and Project 956 class destroyers and Project 1144 and Project 1164 class missile cruisers of the third generation currently in service with the Navies of Russia and China. The AK-130 gun has been selected for Project 21956 class destroyer of the fourth generation.

The 130mm twin-barrel gun is capable of firing 20 to 35 rounds per minute against targets at distances of up to 22 kilometers tracking targets with 1 square meter of radar cross section (RCS) at ranges of up to 40 kilometers. The weapon system covers -10 to +80-degree in elevation and +/-180-degree in traverse. The turret weighing 102 tons is manned by six to ten persons depending on the ship's design and is fitted with 180 rounds which are ready-to-fire using an automatic gun feed system. Each barrel has a life cycle of 1,500 firings. The 130mm round weighs 53 kg (of which 33 kg belong to the projectile itself) and is 1,537mm in length.
