Hoppy's right on target with the info (no pun intended). I've also heard that the cannon is so powerful that it fights the forward thrust of the engines, slowing the plane down. For that and other reasons, pilots only fire 2sec bursts at a time. I took that shot at an airshow last weekend . . the barrels are so huge, I could almost get 2 fingers in to touch the rifling grooves. 3 decades too late- we could have used these babies on Utah & Omaha Beach.
