The Akan m/75 is one of the most powerful cannons used as the primary weapon on a dedicated fighter aircraft. This gas-operated, single barrel, revolver cannon was designed off the Swiss Oerliken KCA and mounted in a conformal gun pod on the JA37C. It fires a 30x173 mm shell that is 50% heavier than the NATO standard 30 mm shell found in other designs. On the JA37, the pod carries the cannon along with 120 rounds of ammunition.
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
