Also look at the very bottom of this page on the picture that says before 30mm burst.

I'm sad to see it go to make room for the F-35

I love that gun.....ill miss the A-10 when the F-35 replaces it...that 30mm avenger with the depleated uranium shells is madness seeing next to that VW beatle gives you the idea of ts size and power....i hope that tank crew managed to escape before the A-10 unloaded
