The 34mm naval gun made by Italian Oto Melara is used on 76 platforms in the hands of the Turkish Navy. In the Burak class corvettes using the 100 mm Nexter head gun, this head gun started to be replaced with the 76mm Italian Oto Melara cannon. In this way, the number of platforms using 76mm seems to increase even more. It is estimated that the sea acceptance and firing tests of the MKE 76mm Sea cannon will be carried out in the Black Sea.
