Type 85 "Archer" Rotary Cannon


Design:

Designed in 1985 by Halitron Defense Industries the Archer rotary cannon was built to be the heavy hitter of Doman weapon systems. With a 6 barrel design, it could keep the barrels cool for longer periods of sustained fire. When attached to aircraft, the barrels would be cooled faster at higher altitudes, making it a good choice for attack craft. Later designs of the Archer would see the size and caliber decrease to fit more compact frames and designs.


Variants:

Type 85: Base design. 6 barrels firing 30x165mm
Type 85-23: Smaller design to fit 23x115mm rounds
