US Army’s New Autocannon

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s one of our nation’s newest weapons — a 50mm cannon that can hit enemies more than twice as far away as the current system employed on our tanks. And it’s a beautiful thing.

According to The National Interest, the new cannon, manufactured by Northrop Grumman, was on display at the defense contractor’s 2019 Bushmaster User Conference in Kingman, Arizona.

“As a small ball of fire shot out of the end of a new 50mm cannon, a cloud of smoke filled the air and, in what seemed like less than one second, an explosion of smoke and fire destroyed a mock enemy target from hundreds of yards away — on the other side of an Arizona desert valley,” Kris Osborn wrote in a piece published last Friday.
