Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What are the chances that the CTWS will be selected as part of the Warrior Lethality Improvement Programme?

    Does anybody have any first-hand experience with the gun? If so, what's it like? Is it reliable?

  2. God knows, if it's similair to the one on the M2/3, then I've only had a wee cabby firing it, belt fed dual feed, much niceness
     
  3. I believe it's supposed to be completely different to ordinary cannons - the bushmaster 25mm which you've seen is the top one in the image, you can see that even the it's 40mm, the CTWS is more compact. That's to do with the totally different way in which rounds are fed into it (see second pic).
