    I am looking for photos or drawings of the HS 30mm guns of the 1946-1965 period, I now a type HS 830 i think was used in the swiss fighter prototype FFA-p16 and other in argentine and Italian designs. So far I ve found nothing, any help will be very very preciated.

    The only thing I could find was an experimental one:
    But the Hs 825 is the on used in the FFA-p16 I believe.

    Thank you friends, from what I can see there the 30mm Hispanos never entered in series production for aircraft . Am I correct ?

    I said "for aircraft" because the argentine army had Hispanos 30mm but as light AAA guns. Found no much about those either.

    They stated that 30-mm gun for aircraft, later well-known as DEFA, was developed on the basis od Mauser gun.

    The story of HS 830 is described here:

    Thanks Tzaw1 , the FMA ( argentine military factory for aviation) bought HS - some in 1961, those are describe simply as " 5 cañones hispano suiza de 30mm para experimentation", despite my repeated search in the archives availble in the factory museum I ve found nothing of what type they were and/or in wich airplane they installed those.
