This U.S. Navy video by Dane Wiedmann shows the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 23 (VX-23) Patuxent River Integrated Test Force carrying out airborne gunfire testing for the F-35B. The stealthy gun pod enclosing the General Dynamics GAU-22/A Gatling gun carries 220 rounds of 25mm ammunition for the F-35B and F-35C Joint Strike Fighter variants. The Air Force’s F-35A carries the four-barreled Gatling gun internally, but with an ammunition load of 182 rounds.
