L/60 40mm Bofors Cannon

The 40mm Bofors Light Anti-Aircraft Gun, based on a Swedish design and built in Canada, served in a number of different theaters during the Second World War. A derivative design is mounted on the AC-130 gunship, with a shortened barrel and a bell-shaped blast deflector. A flexible hood closes the gun mechanism from the outside and allows for cabin pressurization.
