        Not that anon, but he's right. It's the best combination of power and capacity. You'll basically fuck up anything that isn't an MBT and even then if you can engage one first you'll be able to knock out all their visuals if you're lucky.

    realistically probably 20-30mm

    but 50mm, because it makes my pp hard

      The difference in effectiveness between 20mm and 30mm cannon rounds isn’t far
      Off the difference between 30 and 50.

    25mm for laying down a base of fire and taking out lightly armored vehicles. 35mm and above for the use of airbursting smart munitions. 30mm is the .40 of autocannons

      30mm airburst is a thing already

      you have to way explosive filler against capacity

    Well, the US Army is picking 50mm (35mm necked up to support a larger projectile, I assume for HE filler) for the OMFV. This should be big enough for stuff like proxy rounds, delayed detonation, airburst, etc.
    Penetration should also be pretty high - the French claim their ETC 40mm cannon has 175mm penetration. Assuming the use of a high pressure gun + DU penetrator I don't see why that same performance couldn't be achieved

    75mm and not an inch less
    >here's your IFV, and SHORAD, and artillery
    maybe we can develop 75mm GLATGMs for it too

    40mm low pressure. If you're engaging more than (potentially fortified) infantry with an IFV use a guided missile the IFV can carry it.

      40mm is pretty huge. Are you sure the capacity is adequate for an IFV that is laying down a base of fire for maneuvering infantry?

    >20mm
    Machine gun plus
    Used the same way a .50 is, just with a bit more range and effect on target

    >25-30mm
    Taking out light vehicles and with HE capacity for heavy cover

    >30-50mm
    Taking out enemy IFVs, especially the heavier ones
    And for anti-fort use

      25-30 is plenty good enough to take out IFVs, they’ve been doing it for decades
      >but anon, Wikipedia says modern IFVs are rated to 30mm frontally!
      don’t care, 25mm APFSDS is still penning it

    25 has the best balance of filler and capacity.

    I'm thinking 30-06 millimeters
