The whole system consists of three tracked vehicles with twin-35mm cannon and one command and control tracked vehicle. The Aselsan's Self-Propelled Air Defense Gun System (SPADGS) is newly designed and developed for effective ground based air defense against modern air threats.

The 35mm cannon vehicle is based on the new FNSS ACV30 tracked vehicle derived from the highly successful ACV-15 and ACV19 tracked chassis. The vehicle is equipped with an unmanned turret which is armed two 35mm automatic cannons from the Company MKEK. The crew includes gunner, commander and driver who are seated in the chassis of the vehicle.

The 35 mm cannons have a rate of fire of 1,100 rounds, per barrel, per minute. A 3D fire control radar is mounted on the rear top of the turret with a thermal imager and a day TV camera at the right side.

The Command and control vehicle uses the same chassis ACV30 but is equipped with a turret including 3D search radar for tracking and acquisition of targets to a maximum range of 70 km. The links between cannon vehicles and the command and control vehicle are provided by a VHF wide-band radio.

The FNSS ACV30 tracked vehicle has a greater suspension capacity and improved power pack performance offering significant more power capacity able to carry significant higher payloads which include weapon stations mounting 105mm guns or heavy air defense system.

ACV30 platform chassis is provided with a unique, space laminated armour system combining steel and aluminium technology for a protection against firing of small arms (STANAG 4569 Level 4) and mine blast (STANAG 4569 Level 2). The ACV 30 can run at a maximum road speed of 65 km/hr with a cruising range of 500 km.

The vehicle is fully amphibious and propelled in the water by two water jets mounted at the rear of the chassis at a maximum speed of 6 km/h.
