  • Powerful artillery weapon of an aircraft

The shock absorber with high damping performance and efficient muzzle brake provide the required level and direction of firing forces, allowing the aircraft to carry the most powerful 30mm weapon.

  • High firing rate

High rate of fire (up to 6000 rds./min) is achieved due to revolving barrel cluster driven by gas-operated action.

  • Belt feeding

Extreme velocities of ammunition belt feeding are achieved due to reinforced and hardened links allowing doubled belt tension.
