) offered considerably better aerodynamics than the original; it was spun by fins on the shell rather than rifling in the barrel and was supported in the gun barrel by four aerodynamic nubs allowing the middle of the shell to be elongated and thus reducing drag.

The result was a gun that could outrange the original by as much as 50%, while at the same time being much more accurate. Standard NATO & US artillery of the time had a range of less than 25 km while the GC-45, ERFB combination had a range of 39 km. With the innovative base-bleed system this range could be increased to 49 km without loss of accuracy. *26 June—Television presenter Richard Whiteley dies at Leeds General Infirmary following a short illness.
