On the other hand, it has a far lower single-shot kill probability against a modern ground-attack aircraft with a defensive aids suite and armour plating.
Kill probability can be increased by the use of twin- or quad-mounts.
increase of air target kill probability
by more than an order of magnitude owing to the new multi-purpose firing algorithm, as well as high-frequency range finding (frequency of up to 5 Hz);
In general, the emphasis in drone armament will thus continue to be on combining light weight and high single-shot kill probability
According to Kollmorgen, at 2400 metres the Mk 98 kill probability
(presumably against a small target) is 60 per cent, compared to one percent for the Mk 88.
In general, cannon provide a much higher kill probability than machine-guns, but they are more expensive and their increased range demands more sophisticated fire-control systems.
It is claimed that CORAS will improve kill probability by a factor of four, or extend the range for a given kill probability from (for example) 600 to around 2 000 meters.
