MS1102 Emerlec 30 Salesman Sample Cannon Display
This model is of the Emerson Electric Company "Emerlec 30" naval dual 30mm cannon. It was made by the company to exibit to prospective buyers. It is constructed of metal, not plastic. It seems to be made of brass but I could be mistaken. The display case is constructed of Plexiglas and wood. It is 13 1/4 inches wide, 9 1/2 inches deep and 12 3/4 inches high. The guns elevate, the gunner's door opens and the system rotates on the Plexiglas mount. The ammunition feed system is visible through the mount. It is in excellent condition. I was unable to take photos of the display without a lot of reflections in the Plexiglas. It is actually quite clear. The Emerlec 30 was designed for a U.S. Navy Coastal Patrol Boat. However only one prototype was constructed. It was then made for export. It was used by the navies of Ecuador, Ethiopia, Greece, Malaysia, Nigeria, Philippines and South Korea. The gun was designed in 1968. For more information Google: "EMERLEC 30" It will be a nice addition to a naval or ordnance collection. $1,250.00
