    I found this very interesting movie on you tube; It seems the Sgt York was tested with 35x228 Oerlikon as wel as 40 L70 Bofors. The latter won, but the complete project was cancelled in the end. At 00.30 one can see the Sgt York with a twin 35x228 mount.
    Looking at the explosions around the helikopter the KZD-336 proximity fuzed MSD 054 HE is used; the last cartridge in the Original Swiss service series I am still looking for.

    It seems to be General Dynamics' XM246 (see page 28.)

    A very nice and interesting addition to the 35m collection is this 43cm long model of a GDF-001 gun I got yesterday. As I found out during miror repairs, it it not a kit model, but a machined pertinax and sheet steel custom build precision model. The wheels can be turned upward and blocked, the discs on which the gun stands can be screwed down as to show the gun in it's working position.

    An interesting addition tot he collection are these two 35x228 shells; Left the AHEAD (Advanced Hit Efficiency and Destruction), also named KETF (Kinetic Energy Time Fuzed), on the left the practice version of the AHEAD.
    The AHEAD cartridge is available in the 30 and 35mm calibres and is a sort of modern version of the time fuzed shrapnel shell. In the Muzlle brake, two coils are installed which measure the speed of the projectile , followed by a coil at the end of the muzzle brake that sets the fuze in miliseconds by means of an electric pulse. The radar of the system has tracked the speed an trajectory of the airplane, missile, rocket, shell or mortar and calculates the lead and sets the fuze at the moment it leaves the muzzle brake. The shell is activated approximately ten metres in front of the target, spewing out a predictable cone of tungsten metal cilinders that will hit the target, damaging or destroying it.
    The weapon is not only suitable for air defence tasks, but is also used in the CV90/35 armoured vehicle of the Dutch army. The shells are also suitable for usage aganst tanks -destoying sighting equipment, active armour and antennas -, but also against unarmoured vehicles and infantery. The shell can also be used against lightly armoured vehicles by not setting the fuze; the complete package of 152 tungsten cilinders acts as one armour penetrating projectile.
