The primary built-in weapon of the A-10 is the 30 mm GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling gun. One of the most powerful aircraft cannons ever flown, it fires large depleted uranium armor-piercing shells at a rate of about 3,900 rounds per minute (50 rounds per second during the first second, 70 rounds per second thereafter). The gun is so accurate that it is capable of placing 80% of its shots within a 20-foot wide circle from a distance of 1 mile while the aircraft is in flight.

Perhaps because of the colors, this picture appears as an unreally soft, smooth view of THE serial tank killer ! Impossible to believe the eyes... That's so good... 5 stars.
