What is that link doing in the article? The G6 Marksman is an Self Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun (SPAAG), armed with 2x35mm guns, and as such is not artillery. --184.108.40.206 12:43, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
What about the shell ?
- Not strictly correct. I've done some research on this issue and found the following. While standard NATO munitions can be used the performance will be far from optimum.
- To get the full advantage of extreme range the G5/6 family of guns use Extended Range Full Bore (ERFB) shells with a matching propellant system. See , , ,  and . Roger (talk) 16:41, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
There has been some attempt to rename all wikilinks here to G6 Renoster howitzer rather than just G6 howitzer. I don't think Renoster is a very commonly used name for the howitzer, it is normally just referred to as the G6. Google G6 howitzer +renoster returns just 81 results while G6 howitzer -renoster returns 6380. I served on these some years back and can not recall them ever being called Renosters. --NJR_ZA (talk) 06:27, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
- "G6 Rhino" gets a fair number of hits as that is the name the SA Army currently uses. This name does not seem to be used by the manufacturer. The SA Army has a long tradition of naming equipment after animals: Eland, Olifant, Ratel, Buffel, etc. It seems that in recent years they have switched to using English names rather than Afrikaans.

- I'm not sure what you mean by "derivatives". The G6 is the self propelled derivative of the G5. Both guns have been made with three different barrel lengths (39, 45 & 52 cal) and 2 chamber volumes (23 & 25l) The base vehicle of the G6 is also used to mount a dual 35mm AA gun.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
