Gun (GSh-23) is integrated and in ground trials, it fires around 250 rounds per minute and is very close to be cleared for flight trials
PS:It is 25 and not 250.
250 per min is too slow a rate. Even 25rounds per sec is on lower side.

X-31 was lost due to similar cause - ice formation on pitot tube - pilot couldn't gauge situation - aircraft stalled.
The other day I was reading some article where it was said that with every new generation there is a loss of basic piloting skills, because FCS is trivializing a lot of things. I see this AoA thing connected with that.
