    The question is: how many 20mm rounds for the MG 151/20 in a BF 109 F4? Some say 200, some other 150.

    As far as I know, the 15mm version of the MG151, had a 200 rounds provision in BF 109 F2. Moreover, 15mm and 20mm cartridges were quite similar and it seems that the same links were used for assembling both belt types.
    Thus the idea that just the same cartridge tank could afford for 200 20mm rounds, could be not completely wrong. Nevertheless it is just a clue and not a proof.

    Could someone kindly tell me which was the right provision and what is the source of the right info?

    Thanks in advance
