IDES TO DELIVER 2ND MOBILE PROOF GUN MOUNT
23rd July 2013
Following on from the successful delivery of the first Mobile Proof Gun Mount (MPGM), IDES has successfully won a 2nd MPGM contract.
Work has already commenced with the primary subcontractors Drake Trailers Pty Ltd and Ekebol Pty Ltd, thereby maintaining the complete package as 100% Australian designed and built. The design is enhanced with electrically powered upgrades, and turnaround will be notably improved with delivery expected in December 2013.
The first MPGM has been put to extensive and almost continuous use by the Joint Proof and Experimental Unit in South Australia and has significantly enhanced the flexibility and ability to test Navy 5" munitions.
