    The A10 is a very infamous US made aircraft in the Middle East. It's reputation is notorious worldwide as a very feared weapon. The plane it's self is built around the massive 30mm Cannon that fires 4000 depleted uranium rounds per minute. It rips apart anything in the ground, including turning tanks into shredded tincans and ISIS into ground meat, as can be seen here:

    Always appreciated the toothy faces they put on planes. Great reminder of just what they're capable of

    What's even better is that this is only the damage done by the fragmentation of the 30mm rounds. I have no clue as to the ballistics and mechanics of HE 30mm rounds but if it detonated when impacting a person, there'd be nothing left. A frangible or HE .50BMG will tear a person in half and a .50cal is like a .22 compared to a 30×173mm. Hence why the GAU-8 is termed a rotary cannon.

    Ahh well the AC130 has M61 Vulcans which fire 20mm rounds at 6Krpm, but the A10 has a bigger 30mm expensive depleted uranium round and fires at 4Krpm. It can punch right through tanks and ground vehicles well.

    There are a few variations of the AC130, but the AC130H Spectre had two 20mm cannons. After 1994 they were removed and the AC130U Spooky has a single 25mm cannon

    The A-10 Warthog (or Thunderbolt II) is one of my favorite airplanes. That thing is no joke. Good post MC Shizz! :)
