Before we talk about the A-10’s gun, can we give a moment to appreciate the pilot’s full attire? It fits the Warthog so well!
Take a look at how it shakes up the whole cockpit as you hear the audible sound of the 30mm Avenger gun. Its enemies are lucky that it can only fire in bursts. Firing longer might slow down the plane and possibly wear out its barrels. Nevertheless, the Avenger holds a special place in every warbird fanatic’s heart. That’s mainly because of its insane firing rate and the sound it makes as it rains hell on its enemies.
If a plane is designed to accommodate a war machine, then it’s safe to say that you don’t want to be on the receiving end of it.
