The Warthog !

Description:    cid:012501cc3090$5acb2b70$E56836CE@JonDell

It was developed by General Electric, the "We bring good things to life"
people. It's one of the modern-day Gatling guns. It shoots very big bullets.
It shoots them very quickly.

Someone said, "Let's put it in an airplane."

Someone else said, "Better still, let's build an airplane around it."

Description:    cid:012601cc3090$5ad98350$E56836CE@JonDell

So they did.
And "they" were the Fairchild-Republic airplane people.

They had done such a good job with an airplane
they developed back i n WWII ..

.....called the P-47 Thunderbolt,
they decided to call it the A10 Thunderbolt.

They made it so it was very good at flying low and
slow and shooting things with that fabulous gun.

But since it did fly low and slow, they made it
bulletproof, or almost so. A lot of bad guys have found
you can shoot an A10 with anything from a pistol to a
23mm Soviet cannon and it just keeps on flying and shooting.

When they got through,
it looked like this ....

Description:    cid:012701cc3090$5ad98350$E56836CE@JonDell

It's not sleek and sexy like an F18 or the stealthy
Raptors and such, but I think it's such a great airplane
because it does what it does better than any other plane
in the world..

It kills tanks.

Not only tanks, as Sadam Hussein's boys found out to
their horror, but armored personnel carriers, radar stations,
locomotives, bunkers, fuel depots... just about anything
the bad guys thought was bulletproof turned out to be easy
pickings for this beast.

See those engines. One of them alone will fly this puppy.
The pilot sits in a very thick titanium alloy "bathtub."

That's typical of the design.

They were smart enough to make every part the same
whether mounted on the left side or right side of the plane,
like landing gear, for instance.

Because the engines are mounted s o high
(away from ground debris) and the landing gear uses
such low pressure tires, it can operate from a damaged
airport, interstate highway, plowed field, or dirt road.

Everything is redundant. They have two of almost everything.
Sometimes they have three of something.
Like flight controls. There's triple redundancy of those,
and even if there is a total failure of the double hydraulic system,
there is a set of manual flying controls.

Capt. Kim Campbell sustained this damage over Baghdad and flew
for another hour before returning to base. But, back to that gun .......

It's so hard to grasp just how powerful it is.

Description:    cid:012a0

This is the closest I could find to showing you just
what this cartridge is all about.
What the guy is holding is NOT the 30mm round,
but a "little" .50 Browning machinegun round and the
20mm cannon round which has been around for a long time.

The 30mm is MUCH bigger.

Description:    cid:012b01cc3090$5adbcd40$E56836CE@JonDell

Down at the bottom are the .50 BMG and 20x102
Vulcan the fellow was holding. At the bottom right is
the bad boy we're discussing.

Let's get some perspective here: The .223 Rem
(M16 rifle round) is fast. It shoots a 55 or so grain
bullet at about 3300 feet/sec, give or take .
It's the fastest of all those rounds shown (except one).
When you move up to the ...30 caliber rounds, the
bullets jump up in weight to 160-200 grains.
Speeds run from about 2600 to 3000 fps or so..

The .338 Lapua is the king of the sniper rifles these days
and shoots a 350 grain bullet at 2800 fps or so.
They kill bad guys at over a mile with that one.

The .50 BMG is really big. Mike Beasley has one on his desk.
Everyone who picks it up thinks it's some sort of fake,
unless they know big ammo.
It's really huge with a bullet that weighs 750 grains
and goes as fast the Lapua.

I don't have data on the Vulcan, but hang on to your hat..

The bullet for the 30x173 Avenger has an aluminum
jacket around a spent uranium core and weighs 6560 grains
(yes, over 100 times as heavy
as the M16 bullet, and flies through the air at 3500 fps
(which is faster than the M16 as well).

The gun shoots at a rate of 4200 rounds per minute.
Yes, four thousand. Pilots typically shoot either one-
or two-second burst which set
loose 70 to 150 rounds. The system is optimized for
shooting at 4,000 feet.

OK, the best for last.

You've got a pretty good idea of how big that cartridge is,
but I'll bet you're like me and you don't fully appreciate
how big the GA GAU-8 Avenger really is.

Take a look .........

Description:    cid:012c01cc3090$5adbcd40$E56836CE@JonDell

Each of those seven barrels is 112" long. That's almost ten feet.
The entire gun is 19-1/2 feet long.
Think how impressive it would look set up in your living room.

Oh, by the way, it doesn't eject the empty shells
but runs them back into the storage drum.
There's just so dang many flying out, they felt it
might damage the aircraft.

Oh yeah, I forgot, they can hang those bomb and
rocket things on em too, just in case.
After all, it is an airplane!

Like I said, this is a beautiful design.

Be glad it's ours!!!
