Is there precision accuracy data for the 25-mm gun on the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), ideally for both the target practice (TP) round and high-explosive incendiary (HEI) round?

DSIAC was asked to assist in locating information or points of contact for discussion on circular error of probability (CEP) data for the 25-mm gun on the JSF.  DSIAC contacted the JSF Gun Integrated Product Team (IPT) lead to verify that the types of ballistics testing had been completed on the various F-35 models. DSIAC also inquired about the  reports’ status and whether they included ballistics, CEP, and ricochet data and verified the status of upcoming testing and recorded data.  The details and JSF Gun IPT contact information for further discussion and status monitoring were delivered to the inquirer.
