Inert linked round of the 27mm M90 multi-purpose ammunition, which is fired in the BK-27 revolver cannon. The casing and link are original, and the projectile is a solid metal dummy that we've machined and marked to look exactly like the original. These make an awesome display piece in any man-cave, gun store, collection, or firing range!! The rounds measure a very impressive 9.5 inches tall. Check our other auctions......we also sell these in belts of 3, belts of 5, and belts of 10. We can also put these together in any length belt that you would like.....each linked round will be $30 (over 5 round belts). The BK-27 (German acronym for Bordkanone, "on-board cannon") is a 27mm (1.063 in) caliber revolver cannon manufactured by Mauser (now part of Rheinmetall) of Germany. It was developed in the late 1960s for the MRCA (Multi Role Combat Aircraft) program that ultimately became the Panavia Tornado. The BK-27 is a gas-operated cannon firing a new series of 27x145mm projectiles with a typical weight of 260g (9.2 oz). Most models use a linked feed system for the ammunition; however, the Eurofighter Typhoon makes use of a specially developed variant of the BK-27 that uses a linkless feed system instead, which is intended to improve reliability. The Mauser BK-27 is used in the Panavia Tornado, the Alpha Jet, the JAS 39 Gripen, and the Eurofighter Typhoon. At one time the USAF was considering to license its production for the F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter, but those plans have been cancelled in favor of the GAU-22/A. Rheinmetall has also developed remote controlled naval versions, the MN-27 GS and the MLG-27 fully automatic naval guns, which are installed on many ships of the German Navy. Ninety-nine MLG-27s have been ordered by the German Navy so far. The cannon is a single-barrel, high performance, breech-cylinder gun operated by a fully automatic electrically fired gas-operated system at a selective rate of 1000 or 1700 rounds per minute. The Mauser BK-27 utilizes pyrotechnic cocking charges to cycle the action. The BK-27 has a much lower nominal fire rate than the M61 Vulcan, but its fire rate is constant throughout shooting due to the fact the cannon need not spin up. As a result, in conjunction with the higher caliber, the Mauser BK-27 fires in the first second 4kg of projectiles in contrast to the 2kg of the M61 Vulcan which also needs about 25kW electrical energy on the maximum fire rate. Around 3100 of the cannons have been manufactured, and are currently being used by 18 countries around the world.
