Abstract : The trunnion reactions occurring during the firing cycle of the 37 mm. Automatic Gun M4 (T9), were determined by means of piezo-electric gages and the cathode ray oscillograph. The reactions were investigated under two conditions: firing single shots, and firing bursts. The magnitude and duration of the forces appeared to be substantially the same for both firing conditions. (Author)
