might need to enlarge the ****** , found this whilst stumbling , credit to them

Look at my gatling gun. This is the kind of gun they used to put PLANES on. It wasn' t a case of ‘Oh, we got this jet fighter, it
kinda needs something besides missiles and bombs and **** , let' s strap this thing on'. NO. It was a case of a guy making a
gun SC) awesome, that he just stepped back, and said, "This **** needs to fly'. And everyone else is like, 'You cant make a
gun fly!'. And the first guy is all like, **** you, yes I can. I will strap a PLANE to this GUN.' And everyone' s like, ‘You mean
strap the gun to a plane? And the first guy is like, 'No, man. I am strapping the plane to the gun. The plane is an .'
And then everyone' s minds were blown. Like, there was some serious mind blowing going on there. Ears were bleeding.

I remember watching an interview in which the pilot of an A-10 said "the first time I fired live ammunition it felt like the plane was falling out of the sky".

I forgot to say: when the USA tried to replace these with a better ground attack aircraft they couldnt find any so they just upgraded them with better electronics.

Funny thing about this aircraft; the combined force of the engines is less than that of the gun, meaning you could theoretically take off backwards if you had enough amo.

Something else to keep in mind is the gun is slightly to the left of the center of the plane because if it was central with the plane and fired it could slow the plane down enough to cause it to fall out of the sky

this makes no sense. these guns are added on as pairs to keep the weight symmetrical. they fire one at a time and cant provide near the amount of force needed to stop a plane moving at battle speed

do they sometimes get ****** over by the recoil?
User avatar #13 to #12 - threadz ONLINE (08/01/2013) [-]
The GAU-8 produces about 5 tons of recoil per second when firing continuously, which is enough to overpower the engines of a A-10 Thunderbolt II (the aircraft designed to house this beast of a weapon). So yes, if you fire it too much, your plane will stop going forward and fall.

They can only do short bursts or it stalls the jet from the recoil

They actually build a plane around the gun
