Dear All, I have yet to come across any thread here which do deal with the Guns which the fighters do carry out. I am sorry if it is a repost and would ask the moderators to merge this thread with the existing one, if there is any. But I do think that a Gun system is an integral part of a Fighter. Leave alone the BVR's and AESA's, but when it comes to airbattle, you can't throw off the Guns. We do have different systems for different platforms like GSh-30-1 for Su-30, M61A1 in almost all there in US arsenal GSh-23 for Tejas. Lets have an open discussion on the merits and demerits of the systems over here .
