“Feeding” the Monstrously Powerful GAU-8A Avenger • A-10 Ammo Load

Two video episodes of the U.S. Air Force Airmen while conducting loading the ammunition onto the A-10 Thunderbolt II’s GAU-8/A Avenger internal system for upcoming exercises.

The ammunition loading system(GFU-8) is able to upload and download the 30mm rounds simultaneously, enabling the aircraft’s gun to be reloaded rapidly for upcoming missions. The GFU-8 loads over 1,100 30-millimeter rounds of ammunition.

  1. Would somebody please answer this question. I have very little knowledge of these things, and I would really love to find out.
    Why is so much made over the
    30mm gun in the A10, when virtually all Russian fighters have a 30mm gun.
    Believe me, I want ours to be better. But, other than holding more ammo, is the A10's gun
    a lot different? Please explain so
    I can shut up the russian guys in next apartment.

  2. Почему то стало интересно, А-10 стреляные гильзы на борту аккумулирует или по классике – выбрасывает за борт? Вроде как гильзы сохраняет…
