 Science Fair Projects - Hispano 20 mm cannon
This cannon was based on the earlier Swiss Oerlikon FF S weapons, which Hispano-Suiza manufactured under license HS.7 and HS.9.
The Hispano fired a 130 gram (4½ oz) 20 mm x 110 mm projectile with a muzzle velocity between 840 and 880 m/s (2,755 and 2,888 ft/s), depending on barrel length.
The USAF introduced the M39 revolver cannon to replace the M24, while the Navy instead stuck with the original design with a lighter round for better muzzle velocity in the Colt Mk 12 cannon.

 de Kanone A typical cannon A typical cannon A cannon...
The word "cannon" serves both as the singular singular and plural plural of the noun; "cannons" is generally considered incorrect.
The use of cannon was first recorded in the battle battles of the early 14th century 14th century, for instance, at the siege siege of Metz Metz in 1324 1324, and by the English English against the Scots Scots in 1327 1327.
The military use of cannon declined in the mid-19th century 19th century as fabrication technology improved enough to enable the rifling of gun barrels (which in turn required the introduction of breech loading) and the use of the far more destructive explosive shells.

 Hispano 20MM vs MG151/20 - Topic Powered by eve community
The next factor is rate of fire, with the Hispano II timing in at 10 rounds a second and the MG-151/20 coming in at 12 rounds a second.
The Hispano was a larger cannon, firing a larger/heavier round, at higher speeds.
The 20x80RB M-Geschoss and the 20x110 (Hispano) HE were rated as about equal; the greater blast effect of the M-Geschoss was countered by the greater penetration and kinetic damage inflicted by the Hispano.

A cannon is also a modern day machine gun with a calibre of 20mm or more (see autocannon).
The definition of a modern 'cannon' is entwined with the term 'autocannon', and is a gun with a bore diameter of 20mm or more, capable of, but not always firing explosive ammunition, and generally possessing an automatic loading system of some kind.
The caliber of a cannon, which is 20mm minimum, has been a de facto standard since WWII, when heavy machineguns of 12.7mm (0.5") and 13.2mm caliber were used side by side with 20mm and larger guns, which, in contrast to the machineguns, primarily used explosive ammunition.

A film of the same title was made in 1956 and starred Kenneth More as Bader.
During 1941 his wing was re-equipped with Spitfire Vb's, which had two Hispano 20mm cannon and four.303 machine guns.
However, Bader flew a Spitfire Va equipped with just eight.303 machine guns, as he insisted that these guns were more effective against fighter opposition.

Actually the UK went for quad 20mm cannon, if you look at the flurry of mid-1930s specifications that were issued.
The only real option was adopting 20mm cannon, but there was none such produced in US in early WW2.
P-51B/C armament of two 20mm Hispanos would be 1,5 times more effective that RL one with four.50s.

 Aces High BB - Hit rate- cannons vs mg   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Though in that example, each cannon is a bit heavier than each MG, the higher destructiveness of cannon shells means that the ammo load is a bit lighter, making up for the difference in weapon weight.
Projectile count for the Hispano II goes down slightly, but since each projectile is vastly more destructive with cannon, the Hispano in the end wins in this comparison just as easily as the MG151/20.
Cannons will have more critical hits than MG per round simply because cannons fire stronger rounds.

Hunnicutt, with a wealth of wonderful facts and dates, does not discuss if any of the 20mm equipped M114s were actually produced at the Cadillac Tank Plant or if the work was done as either depot level rebuilds or by field modification teams.

 The WWII Fighter Gun Debate: Postscript
Four 20mm cannon were carried by the last piston-engined fighters and the straight-wing jet fighters.
The F-4 and F-106 appeared without cannon, but like the USN the USAF had to change its mind because of combat experience, and during the Vietnam war cannon were installed in these fighters.
An objection raised against rotary cannon is that the spin-up time is fairly long: It takes 0.4 sec before the M61A1 spins up to its nominal rate of fire, while a revolver gun reaches its nominal rate of fire after 0.05 sec.

The original armament of eight.303 Browning machine guns had been chosen because of the ready availability of this weapon but, in June 1939, two 20mm Hispano cannon were fitted to L1007 for trails.
These proved unsuccessful as the Hispano was designed to be mounted on top of a fighter's engine block, which would be solid enough to absorb the recoil.
