F2 20mm Cannon

Status: Current
Category: Guns
 
Description:

The turret is designed around the French GIAT 20mm F2 cannon, well known for its versatility and fire power. One of the main features is the dual feed option, which provides the pilot the capability to select either high explosive or armour piercing ammunition. Additionally, the unique mechanical layout of the turret system enables the pilot to slave the cannon through 220 in azimuth and 70 in elevation, in spite of the difficulty of accommodating dual ammunition feeding to the cannon at these extreme angles.

Ammunition types:
High explosive
Armour piercing

Used on:
Rooivalk (1 x nose)
