I live close to some training grounds for the a-10 - those guns sound cool from the distance I am at - sounds like a big bear growling - I use to scare some kids in the area - telling them it was a monster -

the track doesn't do the gun sound any justice - it's truly amazing...

yes this gun must sound amazing, i've never heard any
full automatic weapons though. only on videos (actual videos not these inserted sound hollywood cr'p).

and as everyone should know by now, yes muzzleflashes are overmodelled, on some BW pictures you see huge flashes, but these last only one fraction of a second - to fast to be really recognized by the eye.

It is very dramatic to watch the A-10 at a gun range, like when I was stationed in Alaska. I would not like to be in a tank when they come to visit!

Pilots in my unit who lost wingmen on this basis were prohibited from leading a [section]. They were made to fly as wingman, instead."
