gunthanxs!!! Hi, I seemed to have missed your post earlier. I saw Vince's post and wondered what that was all about....Anyway, glad to see you here, we needed a gunthanxs earlier, but didn't know where to find one. So what are you shooting? Where are you from and all that personal stuff?

Vince, you better get one (or two) of those motorized reloading presses to go with it. That thing is a brass fountain.

Chambered - thats the vid. I also saw Future Weapons do a similar type thing mounted on an iriquois airframe, "Liquid lightening" with tracer rounds.

She's not a very good shot. I felled a 10" white birch with 7 rounds from my .300 WBY
I still have the severed section of the tree - my first trophy with the rifle when it was new. Had to cut the top third off the tree before I sawed it down, so it wouldn't land on the house. The rifle seemed the perfect tool.

But I'd still like to have a Dillon Aero, even if I can't afford to feed it.

Easiest way I know of to cut a fire lane in the jungle is with a M60...done it a couple of times. Very Happy Very Happy

This little bugger will do the job though....wonder how big a tree it could "deal with".

First there was this gun...


It was developed by General Electric, the "We bring good things to life" people.

It's one of the modern-day Gatling guns.

It shoots very big bullets. It shoots them very quickly.

Someone said, "Let's put it in an airplane."

Someone else said, "Better still, and let’s build an airplane around it."

So they did. And "they" were the Fairchild-Republic airplane people.


And they had done such a good job with an airplane they developed back in WWII...


...called the P-47 Thunderbolt, they decided to call it the A10 Thunderbolt.


They made it so it was very good at flying low and slow and shooting things with that fabulous gun.

But since it did fly low and slow, they made it bulletproof, or almost so.

A lot of bad guys have found you can shoot an A10 with anything from a pistol to a 23mm Soviet cannon and it just keeps on flying and shooting.

When they got through, it looked like this...


It's not sleek and sexy like an F18 or the stealthy Raptors and such, but I think it's such a great airplane

because it does what it does better than any other plane in the world.

It kills tanks.

Not only tanks, as Sadam Hussein's boys found out to their horror, but armored personnel carriers, radar stations, locomotives, bunkers, fuel depots...just about anything the bad guys thought was bulletproof turned out to be easy pickings for this beast.


See those engines. One of them alone will fly this puppy. The pilot sits in a very thick titanium alloy "bathtub."

That's typical of the design.

They were smart enough to make every part the same whether mounted on the left side or right side of the

plane, like landing gear, for instance.

Because the engines are mounted so high (away from ground debris) and the landing gear uses such low

pressure tires, it can operate from a damaged airport, interstate highway, plowed field, or dirt road.

Everything is redundant. They have two of almost everything. Sometimes they have three of something.

Like flight controls. There's triple redundancy of those, and even if there is a total failure of the double hydraulic system, there is a set of manual flying controls.


Capt. Kim Campbell sustained this damage over Bagdad and flew for another hour before returning to base.

But about that gun...

It's so hard to grasp just how powerful it is.


This is the closest I could find to showing you just what this cartridge is all about. What the guy is holding is NOT the 30mm round, but a "little" .50 Browning machine gun round and the 20mm cannon round which has been around for a long time.

The 30mm is MUCH bigger.


Down at the bottom are the .50 BMG and 20x102 Vulcan the fellow was holding. At the bottom right is the bad boy we're discussing.

Let's get some perspective here: The .223 Rem (M16 rifle round) is fast. It shoots a 55 or so grain bullet at about 3300 feet/sec, give or take. It's the fastest of all those rounds shown (except one).

When you move up to the .30 caliber rounds, the bullets jump up in weight to 160-200 grains.

Speeds run from about 2600 to 3000 fps or so.

The .338 Lapua is the king of the sniper rifles these days and shoots a 350 grain bullet at 2800 fps or so.

They kill bad guys at over a mile with that one.

The .50 BMG is really big. Mike Beasley has one on his desk. Everyone who picks it up thinks it's some sort of fake, unless they know big ammo. It's really huge with a bullet that weighs 750 grains and goes as fast the Lapua.

I don't have data on the Vulcan, but hang on to your hat.

The bullet for the 30x173 Avenger has an aluminum jacket around a spent uranium core and weighs 6560 grains (yes, over 100 times as heavy as the M16 bullet, and flies through the air at 3500 fps (which is faster than the M16 as well).

The gun shoots at a rate of 4200 rounds per minute. Yes, four thousand. Pilots typically shoot either one- or two-second burst which set loose 70 to 150 rounds. The system is optimized for shooting at 4,000 feet.

OK, the best for last.

You've got a pretty good idea of how big that cartridge is, but I'll bet you're like me and you don't fully appreciate how big the GA GAU-8 Avenger really is.

Take a look...


Shocked Shocked Shocked

Each of those seven barrels is 112" long. That's almost ten feet. The entire gun is 19-1/2 feet long.

Think how impressive it would look set up in your living room.

Oh, by the way, it doesn't eject the empty shells but runs them back into the storage drum.

There's just so dang many flying out, they felt it might damage the aircraft.

Oh yeah, I forgot, they can hang those bomb and rocket things on ‘em too, just in case. After all, it is an “airplane”!

I WANT ONE !!!!

Cheers, Vince

Vince dont forget that even if it were possible for an A-10 to fire its entire compliment of 30MM in a single burst, it would completely stop the aircraft, even flying at full speed!!!! now thats some POWER!! Ive seen a fair few of these guys shoot off rounds, you can actually watch the aircraft nearly stall out shooting those 1-2 second bursts!!!!

There is somethin' rather special about a gun that has enough power and recoil to stop an aircraft in full flight.

Just imagine the "power" those on the "receiving end" of this wee beastie are experiencing...AWESOME...in a rather deadly fashion. Evil or Very Mad Very Happy Very Happy Razz

That is the "Warthog" - the ugliest plane you will ever love....
and you gotta love it when it is playing "close ground support" or if your one of the lucky guys inside it.
It can fly with 1/2 a wing shot off, one engine down and half the tail missing. What's not to love?

I would like two....

Oh, and that gun.... its the main support for the aircraft structure!

WOW...that is awesome, and scary, all at the same time. Glad I'm not paying for the ammo. I couldn't even begin to imagine what it would be like to be on the receiving end of a burst from that beast.

Its interesting to see the flames coming out of the breech area...'spose its because of the rate of fire. The cases are in and out again before the powder is all consumed.

Thanks Dallan.

Cheers, Vince
