I would love to get a confirmation because that is some disparity. A 32-52 round capacity makes it a much more attractive proposition then a 5 round capacity!TomS said:Jane's gives slightly different info about the TAK 120 L/46 ammunition supply. It says there were magazines on each side of the gun consisting of four compartments with five rounds each. These in turn supported a pair of feed tables, each holding six rounds. That's either 32 or 52 rounds on mount, depending on how you interpret it (4x5 total or 4x5 on each side). Those rounds could then be manually reloaded in 2.5 minutes by two human reloaders. The gun would have to return to a loading position for this evolution.
I think you could be right about the jamming issue. Particularly on weapons of that vintage the quoted stats were often a little "theoretical"!
