Description: The GAU-22/A is a lightweight four-barrel 25mm Gatling gun derived from the proven GAU-12/U gun introduced in the early 1970s. The GAU-22/A delivers increased reliability and improved accuracy over the GAU-12/U gun system. The new gun system also offers lower maintenance costs. The GAU-22/A has been selected for the F-35 Lightning II, formerly known as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), being carried internally in the US Air Force F-35A variant and externally in the US Marine Corps and Navy F-35B and F-35C variants. General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products started the production of the GAU-22/A gun in 2009. More than 3,000 guns could be produced under the JSF program for the United States Armed Forces and several export customers.
