KF-21 Gatling Gun System

M61A2 Six-barrel Externally Powered Gatling Gun System

The KF-21 fighter is armed with the M61A2 20mm Gatling gun system produced by General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems. The fixed-forward internal gun system provides maximum firing rate performance.

The KF-21 linear link less ammunition feed system is compatible with three General Dynamics loading systems, including the Universal Ammunition Loading System, the Ammunition Loading System and the Universal Delinking Loader. The ALS and UALS systems significantly reduce manpower requirements and aircraft turnaround time by eliminating the need for linked ammunition.
