    I was a Bofors gunner before I transferred to guided weapons... although the Bofors we used was the 40/70. It could be traversed and elevated manually by the number 2 and 3 operators using the handles, electrically by the number 3 using the bow, or by the number 9 and 10 using the FCE7 radar to direct and fire the gun. Rate of fire was 240rpm, and this is the very first time that I have ever heard it referred to as a 'machine-gun'.

    Loved the video by the way... but it was much more fun at Todendorf on the Baltic coast when we were firing at wind socks towed by Hawker Sea Fury aircraft painted bright red, and flown by women pilots under the command of Baroness Riebnitz von Thyssen!

    Cheers,
