A-10 Tactical Taco Tuesday T-Shirt Women's
The A-10 Warthog is the only aircraft designed specifically for close air support (CAS). It’s bullish figure comes from the fact that it’s design around it’s weapons platform—if only the rest of us could be so lucky. The GAU-8 Avenger is a 19 foot long, seven-barreled nightmare that fires 30mm ammunition at a rate of 4,200 rounds per minute—or 70 rounds per second. It litters the battlefield with spent brass the size of glass Coca Cola bottles.
The gun is the size of a VW Beetle without it’s 90 inch barrels. When firing, the kick of the weapon is roughly 10,000 lbs of force, or, slightly more than the thrust output of the A-10’s two engines. That’s right, if fired continuously, the weapon would slow the aircraft down enough to stall it and it would drop right out of the sky. Fortunately, burst fire keeps this down to losing just a few miles per hour of airspeed.
I can hardly contain my war-boner just thinking about it.
