Is there is any known preference (maybe of your own) for any autocannon/chain gun cartridges, especially places like Ukraine

How does the reputation of 25mm compare to other options?
What do you think is the most versatile?

    25-35 seems like the sweet spot. you can savage anything that moves with it, and it is small enough to carry a lot of and maintain a decent rate of fire.

      Everyone is adopting 30mm and the US is adopting 50mm. You may not like it but thats the "best" round.

        Theres no doubt that the 50mm is more powerful, issue with IFVs is they require more ammo to be able to sustain their fire support.
        How are you going to suppress anything for any length of time before that 50mm runs out of ammunition?

          Better effect on target means less mindless shooting at treelines. You get better effect on target because you can make cheaper programmable rounds.

            When does it stop then?
            Why not a 75mm?
            A 100mm?

            Because at the end of the day an IFV still needs to carry troops and enough ammo to support them, it's at best wishful thinking that one 50mm round = X amount of 25/30mm rounds.

              Better optics and particularly a larger shrapnel radius is more applicable to the current battlefields where crude fortifications like trenches, ravines, ditches surrounded by rubble etc are heavily utilized. They have programmable airburst munitions

              It stops at the point you can no longer fit a larger cannon, breach, turret, or ammo enough for the IFV to do its job for the endurance or tempo asked of it.
              Though I do wonder why the US didn't opt for 40mm if the idea is going for a bigboi round, given what Rheinmetall and the Swedes or Swiss (I forget which) have been able to do with the muzzle programmable rounds.

                40mm is horribly inefficient. The US is using a necked up 35mm to 50mm. This gives them the ability to carry more ammo compared to 40mm bofors while also throwing a shell with much more HE filler than the 40mm bofors.

                Especially since the unsterilized clip feed scandalous 40mm is untouchables caste kalibur.

                CT40 is lighter than most 30mm cannons and its rounds are smaller.

                They guy I replied to mentioned the Swedish bofors 40mm. No one is really sure how CT40 stacks up against regular 30mm because not that many people use it

                It is half as light as the Bofors gun and France and UK are adopting it for their vehicles with Jaguar being already fielded.

              The Bushmaster 50mm is necked up 30mm so the amount of space taken but by ammunition is very similar. Straight walled cases are extremely space efficient, they just have worse velocity performance, but that isn't that important if you can achieve similar penetration to 30mm APFSDS with the 50mm APFSDS yet you can also have significantly stronger HE

                larger sabots lead to more efficient use of powder and relatively better velocity for any given powder charge and barrel length. So even with a straight wall case you can get good performance with a sub-caliber projectile.

          There are only two bids left and guess what caliber they both have.

          When does it stop then?
          Why not a 75mm?
          A 100mm?

          Because at the end of the day an IFV still needs to carry troops and enough ammo to support them, it's at best wishful thinking that one 50mm round = X amount of 25/30mm rounds.

          Balance between size and capacity is 50mm. Deal with it.

            You could at least bother to make an argument.
            "Deal with it" isn't an argument.

        Depends a lot on what you plan on using the cannon for.
        The Bradley got 25mm because it has good armour pen and the tiny HE payload didn't matter because tanks were intended to support infantry.
        These days I think relying on drones for armour and having a HE specialized cannon for intantry is the way to go.

          This pretty much. Improvements in sensors and FCS + programmable rounds means big dakka clear trench with airbust and big dakka kill IFV even furtherer with less. Simple as.

            part of Bradleys charm is its low volatility - if penned its almost certain to remain in one piece - having lots of big rounds with big he warheads is how Russians get all those stellar explosions when penned...

    before Ukraine i thought that 25mm is legacy stuff - not really viable anymore
    but i was wrong - its still pretty useful and hueg ammo capacity is really useful - with higher calibres you need literal landships to carry enough ammo into battle

    I'm a fan of the Bushmaster III because it can be converted from 35mm to 50mm by swapping the barrel and a handful of parts.
