P20
MULTI-ROLE LIGHTWEIGHT VEHICLES ARMAMENT
MISSION
This 20mm pintle mount can be used to
arm light carriers such as 4x4 vehicles
(with or without a ring mount) or small
boats, for neutralization, protection and
self-defence missions. The mount uses the
20 M 621 cannon, well known for its simple
operation and maintenance, firing the widely
NATO-standard 20mm x 102 ammunition.
The light weight and very low recoil force of
this gun enables it to be pintle-mounted on
the vehicle roof.
This quick and easy installation doesn’t requires any specific tools and can be performed in the
field.
