I'm amazed the thing is still around.

And to be honest, I think people mainly jerk off over the gun. Which to be fair is a gun that deserves to be jerked off too.

Itís super funny because they donít really shoot the gun that much in combat

The thing is the A-10 was reportedly designed for strafing a fulda gap stuffed with advancing soviet armor

No it wasnít. It was designed to shoot them with lots and lots of AGM-65 Mavericks.

I mean it's understandable: the vulcan is a monster and has to be hell on the airframe, and the military has all sorts of other fun toys that can be mounted to the wings. When the Soviets tried to make their own version the guns they built actually had a higher thrust than its engines and can actually put itself in a stall if they fire for too long.

the A-10 uses the Avenger not the Vulcan, and the risk to the airframe is from other people shooting at you because you have to get low and slow to use the gun, not from the gun causing much stress on the airframe itself. That was an issue for the Soviets with the Gsh-6-30, which had to be mounted obliquely on the MiG-27 to compensate for recoil, and caused lots of airframe stress issues, but that was mainly due to how it was mounted externally on the bottom of the aircraft.

As for the stalling out thing, no. Theoretically on the A-10, maybe, but youíd run out of ammo and/or the gun would overheat first.

Keep in mind the MiG-27 is a supersonic jet (as opposed to a VERY subsonic A-10) with variable sweep wings and an engine with an afterburner. Not gun recoil is going to cause that to stall.

"Reportedly" may be doing a lot of work there but this is absolutely how the justification for the giant gun with wings has been sold to the public for decades



All A10 memes are dumb but I'm pretty sure the dude on the left is not supposed to be correct



Actually the dude on the left is correct though? Answer me this question, what is the point of getting slow on the deck to use a big dumb gun when you can safely and far more effectively drop a 500lb JDAM from 20,000 feet from platform that can respond much quicker and stick around the area far longer than an A-10 can?

Nah BF4 AA works wonders on pretty much anything that isnít a wunderkind with JDAMs. They certainly nerfed its sniper capabilities with the 30mm and I think the Zuni rocketsí damage also got reduced against tanks but against something in the air itís still good. And even if you find it hard to hit stuff with the cannon, or even if you can, you can equip the passive radar missiles and really make jets mad.

Infantry AA did never worked on jets though thatís for sure.

The 30mm upgrade on the MAA just loving shreds little birds and I love it

Most will definitely avoid hardcore because their vehicle health wonít regenerate, they wonít have spotting, and wonít have map markings.

Which is crazy because in BF1 if you tap then tap+hold the throttle down button or trigger it will cut the engine and you can just silently glide over the top of the map listening for other aircraft then just roll and pull into a dive on top of them and smoke them in one pass. I mean, it worked for the Red Baron. Hardcore is great for flying in BF1.

Yeah, it was a blast hunting the enemy teamís carrier in a submarine. Could get very tense. But there are few battlefield moments quite like putting a full spread into a enemy carrier and then spending the next fifteen minutes trying to clear datum while getting depth charged by an extremely unhappy destroyer guy.

For the scout choppers specifically thereís a couple of related things that combine into a bigger thing. I think the speed of repairs is the biggest factor rather than being able to repair at all. The related factor is that wIth ECM or flares a scout helicopter is guaranteed to have time. ECM and flares arenít a chance to evade a missile but a guaranteed miss.

For BF4 Iíve usually thought that a countermeasure should have been for a specific attack rather than all of them. Flares could stop a lock or hit from heatseekers but do nothing against radar missiles, same for ECM against heatseekers. You could throw in another countermeasure type for lasers like tanks have.

Lol yeah, as an IRL (former) ECM tech the fact that the ECM function on choppers decoys heat seekers just really loving irks me lol

Bags are incredible and refill everything and they refill your stock instantly. As assault, you can lob infinite AT grenades as shockingly effective indirect fire if you have a guy feeding you pouches. Lots of support players I know run both.
