The A-10 & GAU-8 a Deadly Duo
The A-10 Thunderbolt "Warthog" aircraft is built around the GAU-8 Avenger gun, a 30mm Gatling-type cannon capable of firing 70 rounds per second. Take a look.... the "Gun" fires projectiles made of a lightweight aluminum body, cast around a smaller caliber depleted uranium penetrating core, and is lethal against tanks and all other armored vehicles.
