Ok could someone answer this...?

Recommended Posts

Exactly what do the L and the number stand for in gun designations like 88mm L/71 ? I know it deals with muzzle velocity but I want to know what the letter and number mean? I also know that the higher the muzzle velocity the better the gun usually, especially in tank fighting..

The problem is that most opponents are extremely reluctant to give you a shot at a rear penetration. It usually takes considerable maneuvering to make one materialize. :D

There is some irresistible force that compels me to contribute to the corruption of this thread... :rolleyes:
