M61A1 Six-Barrel Gatling Gun and Feed System

The F-16 20mm Gun System features the M61A1 six-barrel Gatling gun and a linkless ammunition feed system. The M61A1 provides up to 10 times the reliability of single-barrel guns, firing at 6,000 shots per minute and placing a controlled dispersion of projectiles in the path of the target.

The double-ended linkless ammunition feed system incorporates a compact lightweight composite rotary ammunition drum to store unfired and fired ammunition.

The feed system is compatible with four General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems’ loading systems: the Universal Ammunition Loading System; the Ammunition Loading System; the F-16 Delinking Loader and the Universal Delinking Loader.
