Currently employed by all branches of the U.S. military and in more than 30 countries, Dillon’s M134D Minigun is one of the most reliable weapons in the world given its capacity, simplicity in loading, and ease of maintenance.

Designed for speed and accuracy, the M134D is a true force multiplier and ideal for the operational requirements of the K50 KRAKEN which includes close proximity maritime engagement.

Dillon’s M134D will combine with systems from recently announced partners Thales and MSI-DS, to ensure all K50 KRAKEN effectors are fully systems-integrated, CMS-led, and precisely-aimed for maximum operational efficacy in its maritime precision engagement role.

About the Kraken 50

The Kraken K50 is a built-for-purpose, ultra-high-performance maritime platform, capable of rapid response and massive solo or swarmed force projection in defence of national or naval maritime assets, sovereign waters, and critical civil or commercial infrastructure.

Inspired by the efficacy and naval doctrine options enabled through the use of heavily-weaponised, swarm-based, planing powerboats of the WW2 era, KRAKEN is every inch the spiritual successor to the renowned Motor Torpedo Boat, Motor Gun Boat and PT Boat type craft.

Engineered from the keel up as a fully integrated weapons platform to exceed anything currently available, KRAKEN K50 simply delivers more performance, more effective strike capability, and more mission specific customisation.

This combination of innovative engineering, diligent naval architecture, and massive operational capability makes the KRAKEN equally effective in both deterrent and effector roles.
