The Turkish Defence Industries Directorate (SSB) tweeted on 30 October that Turkey is developing a 20 mm cannon for its T129 attack helicopter.

Under the project, a 20 mm cannon with three barrels will be produced locally, with applications for naval and land in addition to air platforms.

During the first phase of the project, 34 20 mm cannons will be produced, including four prototypes. The qualification process for the prototypes will begin 24 months after the project begins.
