So here is a question for you!
They still opt for a big 30mm autocanon on the Felon.
And on most if not every Flanker, there they put on a extra protection skin for the muzzle force and heat.
So now they can do without, and never mind the more senitive skin of a 5th gen fighter here?
It isn't exactly a big gun (46kg). It is half the weight of a 20mm Vulcan cannon (even the light weight A2 version) and the 27mm Bk-27 used in Europe...
It only carries 150 rounds, and fires them with a 25 round cutoff... and there is no need to fire it outside of combat (except perhaps for calibration).
