Description: The lightweight and highly accurate THL 20 gun-turret has been developed for the last generation of attack helicopters. It can fire all NATO standard ammunition, is fully integrated in the weapon system of the helicopter and may be aimed by a helmet-mounted sight. The THL 20 has a 20mm 20 M 621 gun. General Dynamics selected GIAT's THL 20 gun-turret to be integrated on the RAH-66 Comanche attack helicopter. The P20 is a pintle-mounted gun system intended for light tactical vehicles. The first sale of the P20 20mm cannon was announced in March 2020 to the German Bundeswehr.
