according to butch2k, the weight of MK108s cannon+ammo was comparable with MG151/20. MK108 was light weapon considering its caliber.

Fly Bellum war in a G6 with MK108 against LA5 FN's.Then try it with default armarment.With default it definately handles better.

As you can see here:Mk108 (http://www.luft46.com/armament/mk108.html) The Mk108 was only 58 Kg. that's very light compared with all other weapons of this caliber. But the 109 and 190 have some handling penalty using it.

Particulary in G6 the weight was different by 15kg or so.Handling is somewhat different but then again MK108 is not primarily meant for fighters.

The mk108 (unlike the MK103) was made out of pressed metal stampings .. this made it cheaper to mass produce and lighter
