Cannon
The gas-operated 35mm/90 Cal. cannon, with a high rate of fire of up to 1,100 rds/min., and the muzzle velocity up to 1,175 m/s, together with high aiming speed, low recoil force- and small dispersion, contribute to the remarkable effectiveness of 35mm AA gun system within its range of 4,000 meters. The gun mount is electrically powered with an off carriage power supply unit and manual controls are provided for emergency use.
Ammunition
The Type 90 35mm twin-gun can fire four types of lethal and versatile ammunitions, HEI (High Explosive Incendiary), HEI-T (High Explosive Incendiary Tracer), SAPHEI-T (Semi-armor-piercing high-explosive incendiary Tracer) and TP-T (Target Practice Tracer ) cartridges, the AA gun system can defeat almost any air threat, as well as various ground and surface targets, including light armoured vehicles. One ammunition containers are fitted on each side of the twin-gun and rotate with it. Each 35 mm AA gun is provided with 112 rounds of ready use ammunition, and with another 126 rounds in reserve for rapid reloading, thus guarantees multi-target engagement capability and high firing endurance. The reloading time is 7.5 seconds.
Mobility
The Type 90 is mounted on a cradle which is designed to carry guns and the mobile platform. It contains the hydro-mechanical recoil mechanism, which absorbs the recoil forces. The lower part of the cradle comprises the two-axle chassis and the outriggers with the leveling spindles for four-point support in the firing positions. Raising and lowering the leveling spindles and raising the wheels are done electro-hydraulically or manually in the case of power failure. The whole Type 90 35mm twin-barrel is towed by military truck.
Accessories
The Type 90 includes a computer controlled electro-optical director for 3-dimensional target tracking in conjunction with the laser range finder.
