As modeled in AEP version 2.00, the A6M2 Type 21 has a continuous fire duration of 14-15 seconds with the two Type-99 Type 1 20mm cannon in the wings.

The gun having a rate of fire equal to 8 rounds per second unsynchronized...

this means it has approximately 120 rounds of ammo, which the A6M5a we have also has.

This is incorrect. The A6M2 Type 21 1940 Zero-sen had 60 rounds per cannon.*

Probably just an oversight, but noting that here to make sure. I hope Shogo_Takeuchi will read this be sure to verify. ~S~
