the MiG-27 for quite a while was, arguably, the most advanced aircraft in the Soviet Air Force.The MiG-27 was ready to be accepted into service in 1975 and, in general, the Air Force command was quite happy with the aircraft and its capabilities, with only one exception: the gun.The thing is that the standard at the time, the 23 mm aircraft cannon, was now considered by the military as insufficient to successfully fight the new generation of NATO’s armored vehicles.
Moreover, the Soviet Air Force command wanted the aircraft with a gun that would be able to penetrate the armor of the soon-to-come American M1 “Abrams” tank.Ideally, the Air Force wanted a powerful 45 mm aircraft cannon, but because such a gun was yet to be created, the military suggested installing, in the meantime, the already existing 30 mm rapid-fire cannon.The good news for MiG’s engineers was that the gun indeed existed and had been in service for more than 5 years already.The bad news was that it existed as a naval anti-aircraft gun.Most likely the military understood that thesize of the battlecruiser and the fighter aircraft was somewhat different, but …”
They are communists, after all.They’ll figure out something.” The Soviet engineers indeed figured it out and relatively quickly built an aviation version of the naval gun, though it quickly became obvious that the journey was not going to be easy.To run the ground firing test the new gun was installed on a dummy model of the MIG-27, but after the first short burst, the model of the aircraft instantly collapsed.

Don’t hesitate to take it. The new hoodie design for your style. It’s a Battlefield playstation video game shirt .For the MiG-27 the transition from the 23 to 30 mm caliber promised huge advantages.The much heavier weight of the projectile (from 180 to 400 grams) would not only allow almost triple the amount of explosive but would also significantly improve the ballistics and accuracy of the gun, as well as its armor penetration capabilities.Thus, the Air Force Command made a decision to replace the standard MiG-27 s 23 mm gun with a new 30 mm multi-barrel rapid-fire cannon,
As the base for the new 30 mm aircraft gun, engineers used the naval anti-aircraft artillery system AO-18 that was designed in 1964 by two prominent Soviet weaponry engineers, Vasiliy Gryazev and Arkadiy Shipunov.While working on the Soviet multi-barreled aircraft gun they were aware of the existing American 20 mm M61 Vulcan but only in general, without knowing specific technical details.And even if they had known, as Shipunov later recalled, the level of development of Soviet technology wouldn’t allow them to replicatethe American gun.
That is why the Soviet engineers decided to go their own way.Unlike the American multi-barreled M61 Vulcan, in which the barrels are set in motion by the external electrical engine, the Soviet guns employed a gas-operated system that utilized the energy of the firing rounds to rotate the barrels.Each approach has its pros and cons but the Soviet one provided their guns with two major advantages: significantly higher rate of fire, and, in comparison to the American guns, much lighter weight since additional electrical engines were not needed. In 1975 the new Soviet gun was accepted into service under the designation GSh-6-30A.
The new gun had truly impressive characteristics and demonstrated absolute superiority over most Western models existing at the time and in some areas even over those that would appear later.Even in comparison with the all-famous 30
mmGAU-8 Avenger, which entered service 2 years after the GSh, the Soviet gun’s significantly higher rate of fire and thus heavier 1-second burst mass made it possible for the Soviets to claim that GSh-6-30 was more powerful than its American counterpart.Before being installed on the MiG-27, the gun underwent significant modifications to make it lighter and smaller in size.
But even with a reduced size, the engineers barely managed to squeeze the gun in the MiG-27’s compartment originally intended for the smaller 23 mm gun. which would provide the aircraft with a 4 times increase in the rate of fire and a solid 1-second burst mass.
