A-10/GAU-8 round type switch to API from HEI
Open, WishlistPublic


Not asking for any fancy submuntions, just a round type switch to AP-I from HE-I.

Currently the GAU-8 fires 30mm HE-I and would be much better suited to fire Armor Piercing, Incendiary(AP-I) - similar to the M163 VADS ammo. A round that is somewhat identical to HE, but with the penetrating power needed to kill armored targets.

As it stands now the VADS is more adept at killing armored vehicles, with its 20mm gun, than the A-10 at 30mm which was designed specifically for that purpose.


Reproducable without other mods?
