  • Automatic cannon on SU-24 and MiG-31

    i've saw pictures of SU-24 Fencer, since they were just blurred sillowettes. some time later, when better quality photos were available, the info was that Fencer has 2 cannons, one single barrel, perhaps to shoot chaff cartridges, and one 6 barrel. the access doors were also the ventral air brakes. is that correct? can you place comments and/or post pictures of these cannons? and MiG-31 Foxhound? is said it has a cannon too, but never saw where it is, on centerline or side mounted. thanks for your comments!

    The way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts.

    My info said the first "attacK' models of the SU24 had a 23mm cannon installed of the stbd side lower fuselage covered by an "eyelid" shutter...later models had a 30mm cannon but this was removed on the "Recon" version to allow installation of a camera.

    MIG31...Older model MIG had a 23mm gatling gun installed on stbd side aft fuselage....this was later removed to make room for more A to A missils...

    Hope that helps.....
