Description: Millennium is a 35mm naval gun system suitable against sea, land, and air-based targets. Due to the use of air burst munitions the Millennium gun system is able to defeat guided missiles 1,200 meters away. The Ahead ammunition carries 152 sub-projectiles each weighing 3.3g and has been specially designed against supersonic threats and small targets. The Millennium gun system features electro-optical fire control system. The Millennium 35mm gun system is able to defeat an incoming supersonic missile at 1,200 meters, cruise missiles with reduced cross section at 2,000 meters and aircraft at 3,500 meters. The US Navy could purchase the Millennium gun system for littoral warfare purposes integrated on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).

In November 2004, Denmark selected Millennium cannon to provide close-in air defense for the Royal Danish Navy new Combat Support Ships (CCS). Each CSS will be fitted with two Millennium guns, one forward of the bridge and the second aft on the Hangar roof. As of November 2004, seven NATO countries have chosen Millennium gun system.
