Nice to see Bofors products here!
I have fiered the 20mm, 40mm (both L60 and L 70), the Naval versions of the 57 mm and the 120 mm double turret of the Halland class destroyers as a Gunnery Officer.

The 120mm are the ones i like best! 40 rpm from each barrel makes 80 rpm from one turret and put these devasting fire against a seatarget is FUN [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
