The 35mm Oerlikon ammunition is time and impact (I assume) fused.  The 40mm 3P is proximity, time, and impact fused (in programmable combinations)  For AA/AM uses the proximity fusing is a big advantage.  And, as state above, it's fuse programmability and versatility obviates the need for multiple feed.
