Abstract : An engineering evaluation was made of the Oerlikon 206 RK 20mm four-gun armament installation in an F-86F aircraft. The gun was fired from a rigid ground mount and from a stationary aircraft to determine barrel life, projectile velocity, cyclic rate, dispersion, and aircraft installation reliability. The general functioning characteristics, reliability of the installation, and effectiveness of the gun-gas purging system were evaluated during 19 aerial missions at altitudes from 10,000 to 40,000 ft.
