As a result of its large, powerful ammunition, the gun had a tremendous recoil, and its size made portability difficult.

The gun used 20×105mm belted-case ammunition which it shared with the S 18-350 aircraft cannon that was developed from the rifle. A Finnish source gives armour penetration of the gun as 20mm at a 60-degree angle at 100-metre distance, decreasing to 16mm at 500 metres.
