The Type 1130 is a ship-based Chinese close-range anti-aircraft defense system in 30 mm caliber. It is a further development of the Type 730 CIWS , but with 11 instead of 7 tubes.


The core of the Type 1130 system is the 30 mm Gatling cannon . This provides a very high cadence of up to 10,000 bullets per minute. The cannon fires either high explosive (HE) or fragmentation projectiles (HE-FRAG).

The electronics consist of a radar on the top left of the tower, as well as a color camera, a thermal imaging camera and a laser range finder in a U-shaped bracket on the top right. The range of the radar is up to 20 kilometers for medium to large targets. After identifying the target, it can be fought from a distance of 3 kilometers. Targets can be fought that fly at speeds of up to Mach 4.
