25-mm Cartridges

25mm ammunition provides the firepower necessary to meet a variety of applications for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, the LAV, other infantry fighting vehicles, and air defense platforms (equipped with the McDonnell Douglas M242 chain gun, the Oerlikon KBA B02B1 weapon system, or any other NATO-qualified 25mm weapon system). Other derivatives of the Bushmaster 25mm family, such as the PGU series of cartridges, are used in the AV-8B Harrier (PGU-25 HEI) and in the AC-130 Gunship (PGU-38 HEI).
