1/72 scale very hi detailed and accurate model of Italy Otobreda 127 mm/64 (5") LW Gun.
The LW (for "Light Weight") mounting uses four modular automatic feeding drum magazines, each holding 14 rounds. This permits firing up to four different and immediately selectable types of ammunition. The magazines can be reloaded while the gun is firing. Projectiles and propelling charges are hoisted separately to the gun level from below-deck feeding magazines. There is a composition station below the gun where the next round to be fired is selected just before it is taken up by the gun automatic loading system. Unfired rounds can be recycled back to the loading drums.
