MOSCOW, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Russia's United Aircraft Corporation has posted video of a test firing of the cannon for the fifth-generation Sukhoi T-50 fighter jet.
The video was posted late last week on the company's YouTube channel.
It shows the NNPU-50 cannon being fired at a range outside Moscow, the Tass news agency reported Monday.
The mounting included a 9-A1-4071, one of the lightest cannons of that type that can fire up to 150 30mm bullets during one sortie.
That cannon is an upgraded version of the GSh-301 30mm auto cannon mounted on Russia's MiG-29, Su-27, Su-30, Su-33 and Su-35 fighters, as well as frontline bombers and the Yak-38 vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, Tass reported.
The T-50 took its maiden flight in 2010.
