Guns[edit]

Did this have a specific type of gun that it used (like a modern CIWS), or was it just an aiming system which could work with any set of guns. If it did have a specific gun, what was it? 82.11.251.232 (talk) 00:21, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

The Village Inn system was an aiming system and AFAIK could have been used with any gun or suitably modified turret.
The system was not more widely used because the following generation of bombers (the Canberra and V Bombers) carried no defensive armament at all, relying on speed, altitude and ECM for defence. Ian Dunster (talk) 12:06, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
