Its just too slow to really operate effectively against a modern enemy. This message is updated dynamically through the template {{}} last update: 15 July 2018. Also the engine block will stop only some of the bullets, the rest will demolish the hydraulics or possibly get through into the crew compartment. See here I'm deleting this picture and correcting the article information on this matter. There's no advanced armour in the back. The speed that we can conduct precision strikes with devastating effects while providing close air support to our Marines is nothing shy of awesome. To use this banner, please see the.

For decades we seem to have favored the lighter M61 20mm cannon for use in our fighters. The ammo is gone, the sensors are gone and most likely the crew in the turret is also gone. I know from previous tests, there were specific round counts, so my guess is that it's round selectable. I hope I have addressed your questions. Consider this - If the bullet has enough kinetic energy to penetrate the upper arc of the turret's frontal armour of a T-55 then it has enough kinetic energy to penetrate the armour in the back of the turret of a T-90A or a T-72B let alone other variants, destroy the engine, completely destroy the optics and probably damage parts of the reactive armour. Well, let me guess: The huge rate of fire is necessary to keep the rounds in the target while the airplane is moving sometimes at an extreme high speed, sometimes even supersonic speed.

Each of the four gun barrels has a breech bolt assembly that fires once per gun revolution. A succinct summary comparing the various aircraft cannons can be found in this post on ar15. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack and air defense missions. Let's not go painting an entire country a bunch of nationalist fascists.

The GAU

In 1956 the gun was standardized as the M61 20mm cannon and entered service with both the United States Army and Air Force. The 30mm Gau-8 Avenger gattling gun of the A-10 or the 25mm Gau-22 Equalizer gattling gun of the F-35 jet? Either in that same document, or something I read in the past day or so, stated that the gun was estimated to be used about 70-80% of the time in an A2G role, and only 20-30% in an air-to-air role. Well I am already bored with a pointless discussion. Have a to get a better understanding of what tank armour really looks like not that you couldn't find it with a simple search. I am sorry but this is wrong, the multi purpose ammo that is being used is based on a Norwegian design, not the guns. On 31 July 2015, the first squadron was declared ready for deployment after intensive testing by the United States. Let's not go painting an entire country a bunch of nationalist fascists.

The Russians and Europeans, heavier 23 and 30mm rounds though carrying fewer of them than the M61.

If the ammo doesn't get hit then the tank is salvageable because it doesn't cook off but it is inoperable until fixed.

Sure is great when we're shooting up gorilla fighters in 3rd world countries using 30 year old russian equipment, but an A-10 would get eaten alive against a modern military. The fact that the Super Tucano is Brazilian doesn't help. That is a picture of an M61 cannon. This message is updated dynamically through the template {{}} last update: 15 July 2018.

Bottom comment one-liners are typically removed. With that said, air-to-air gunnery is a tradeoff between accuracy, dispersion, shell velocity, shell lethality and firing rate.

Soon after the end of the Second World War the newly formed United States Air Force identified a need for an improved gun system for its aircraft.

Additionally the high rate of fire allows you to use several types of ammunition in the aircraft simultaniously, so you can pack armor piercing, incendiary and high explosive rounds to suit all applications, rather than a 30mm cannon with a lower rate of fire. A space reserved for a laser in the future is reasonable but I don't think it's the right spot. Putting an F-35 down on the deck, where it is exposed to ground fire, terrain and it loses its stealth advantage, means it will be in more danger than if it weren't used in such a way. A cheat sheet for all the available operators is. Last I checked, part commonality is at. A former Phantom driver told me you ideally wanted 50 kts overtake or closure speed, and optimum firing distance was 1000-1500ft.

What really makes me wonder is why did they put such a high volume gun in an F-35 - for ground attack? But it is what it is. Who you think will win? Knocking out optics, penetrating the main gun's barrel, destroying the exhaust system or the treads will all go towards disabling the tank. Under that logic, the Army and Marines should scrap their attack helicopters and turn that mission over to the F-35s. The A-10 carries as much ammo than the F-35, depending on the model. According to the manufacturer the site originally sourced before some company change , it does achieve 1. With the introduction of helicopters to the modern battlefield, the M61 system was redesigned and scaled down for use as a helicopter weapon system. It's intended, primary use is to service ground targets.
