Browning machine-guns. The very low thrust levels of the early jet engines, however, meant that, for the time being at least, a single-engined jet fighter was out of the question and the only practical choice was to go for a twin-engined design. 28/39 began to take shape, George Carter was forming his ideas on just such a machine that could be developed into an operational jet fighter.

The linkage chutes had to be modified as the used links often became fast in the jettison chute, leading to a build-up of links in the guns and jamming the mechanism; this became a familiar problem to us.
