General info

Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the cannon or machine gun.

Available ammunition

Describe the shells that are available for the weapon and their features and purpose. If it concerns autocannons or machine guns, write about different ammo belts and what is inside (which types of shells).

Comparison with analogues

Usage in battles

Slightly lower velocity than its brethren Hispano cannons, it may throw off aim somewhat for the pilot. It has a good high explosive filler and a fast rate of fire allowing for strafing of land and water-based targets.

Pros and cons


  • High rate of fire
  • Large amount of explosive filler


  • AP rounds have lower muzzle velocity than its predecessor Hispano cannons, which may throw you off in aiming


Developed by the British from the Hispano cannon series, it featured a higher rate of fire whilst being lighter and shorter. However, it had a lower muzzle velocity and required manual charging of ammunition in preparation to firing.


An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
