In the early 1980s, Military Systems Group recognized that it could assist the boat manufacturers and their U.S. Navy and Coast Guard customers in properly integrating weapon systems. Thus, MSG was founded on naval mounts.
MSG has a wide array of mounting brackets, stands, pedestals, swing arms, and gun mounts optimized for a wide array of craft, firing positions, and weapons. MSG has mounted weapons for U.S. military and Coast Guard customers from 18’ inflatable boats to fast attack submarines. MSG engineers have produced mounting systems to overcome inherent maritime complexities: the constantly moving firing platform; limited rear-working-circle for naval gunners; limited hard points to attach weapon systems; and a hostile and corrosive environment for most metals.
MSG’s SA9 systems address each of these issues, especially the limited rear-working-circle. As an added benefit, the SA9 systems increases field of fire compared to competing systems.
