    It also confirms that they are carried two to a pylon and only the outer wing pylon of the new model Havoc can carry them... which means it can carry four, but it also means it can carry rockets or other ordinance on the inner wing pylons too.


    I have to say I am a little disappointed with the gun on the new helicopter... I was hoping they would take away the ammo magazines mounted on each side of the gun and have belt feeds leading off each side of the gun to flat ammo areas under the belly of the aircraft to hold larger numbers of shells.

    Especially with the new command detonation rounds I would think carrying a lot of ready to use ammo would be useful.

    Sounds like its aiming mechanism is improved and made lighter, but its ammo capacity has not be increased.
