The P-20 pintle mount 20mm automatic cannon can be used to arm light carriers such as 4x4 vehicles (with or without the ring mount), it can be also integrated into small boats, for neutralization, protection and self-defence missions.

The main advantage of this weapon is its capacity to hit targets up to 2,000 m, using explosive ammunition.

These cannon, with their guaranteed low integration stresses (weight and recoil forces) enable a pintle-mounted fit to the ring mount of the vehicle roof or to the structure. The installation and removal of mounts are fast, easy, require no special tooling, and can be performed in the field. The CP 20 mount can be fitted to a tripod on the ground.

The complete system including ammunition weighs 167 kg. The gun is provided with 100 rounds of NATO-standard 20 × 102 ammunition. It has an average firing rate of 750 rds/min.
