  MK 108 cannon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The MK 108 (German: Maschinenkanone - Machine Cannon) was an autocannon (30 mm calibre) manufactured in Germany during World War II by Rheinmetall-Borsig for use in aircraft.
The MK 108 was quickly ordered into production and was installed in a variety of Luftwaffe fighter aircraft, including the Messerschmitt Bf 109, Focke-Wulf Fw 190, Heinkel He 219, Messerschmitt Me 163, and Messerschmitt Me 262.
The MK 108 was also fitted to night fighters in an unusual installation, called "Schr├Ąge Musik" (German: "Jazz Music", literally "slanting music").

 Rheinmetall-Borsig MK 108 30mm cannon Luft '46 entry
In many ways, the Rheinmetall-Borsig MK 108 30mm cannon was considered to be a masterpiece of weapons engineering, due to it's compact size, ease of manufacture and hitting power.
In short, the MK 108 was a blow-back operated, rear-seared, belt fed 30 mm cannon using electric ignition and was charged and triggered by simple compressed air.
There were two main types of ammunition for the MK 108 to use, a 30 mm high-explosive self-destroying tracer ("M-Shell" or "Mine-Shell") and a 30 mm incendiary shell.

As new ASW weaponry was developed to address the Soviet submarine threat, numerous destroyers and destroyer escorts were modified to carry the weapons.
One of the new weapons, the Mark 108 rocket launcher, was installed aboard the destroyer leader Norfolk, a number of Fletcher- and Gearing-Class destroyers, and several Dealy-Class destroyer escorts.
The Mark 108 launcher, often referred to as "Weapon Able" or, later, "Weapon Alpha," was a remotely controlled, automatically loaded rocket launcher for firing the 12.75-inch Mark 1 and Mark 2 underwater rockets.

The Mk 108 allowed the 109 to achieve greater destructive power against bombers, but the low muzzle velocity made it a poor dogfighting weapon.

The Machinekanone (MK) 108 gun was developed by Rheinmetall-Borsig between 1941 and 1942.
A direct hit of a mineshell on a fighter’s wing would rip the wing off instantly; for a heavy bomber three direct hits were enough to bring it down.
The Me 163B was armed with two MK 108 guns, mounted in the left and right wing root with 60 shells per gun.

When I have used my Focke Wulf with 2 mk 108's it does not appear to be so acurate even though I have 2 of the cannons!.
If I can separate them from the melee and have gotten a mk 108 strike, then I'll either let them limp back home no longer a threat or I'll climb away and set up for the killing blow.
You're right, though, in that it *may* still take 2-3 108 hits to down a P51 but I find that 1 is usually enough to disable it from causing me any more trouble.

Production was scheduled to get under way in 1943, but allied bombing, and Hitler's insistence that all the Me 262s should be used as bombers instead of fighters, seriously delayed deliveries.
