The 20mm x 102 PGU Suite has an optimized aero ballistic shape that reduces time-of-flight and increased velocity at range for increased probability of hit.

 

The PGU-27A/B TP and PGU-30A/B TP-T are cost-effective training rounds ballistically matched to the PGU-28A/B.

 

The family is fully interoperable with all 20mm x 102 gun systems and support/handling equipment including the M61, M197 and XM301 and is type-classified and fielded in the F-15, F-16, F/A-18, and AH-1.
