In contrast to comparable ship guns, the 76/62 Compact is specially designed as a fully automatic and, above all, light weapon system. Due to its low weight and small size, the gun is mainly used on smaller ships and boats.
The system can be used against both air and ground targets (ship and coastal fire). The cadence is 85 rounds per minute, the range is 18 kilometers. Up to 80 rounds are stored in the gun magazines.
The following ships use the weapon system (list is not complete):
