Why isn't this thread more popular?
>>
>>27783238

Cause there isn't much to say. Plane shoots gun. That's about it. Is there something particularly special about the F-35's 25mm?
>>
>>27783238
Because it was already mentioned yesterday in the F-35 thread that is still up.

>>27783257
APEX ammo?
>>
Anyone know why they went to a 25mm cannon instead of the standard m61?
>>
>>27783637

Apparently, 25mm is better against ground targets and the F-35 is meant primarily as a strike plane.

>>27783637
25mm FAP (Yes, harhar, FAP) offers penetration for 37mm RHS from 1,200m, allowing the F-35 to destroy IFV's with its cannon.

>>27783637
It's a relative of the GAU-8
>>
>>27783637
20mm has been seen for a while as inadequate.
