Yeah, it's for an A-10

The GAU/8. Seven and a half feet long. I have heard, althrough I can't be sure, that the pilot can be going nose down in a dive and if he holds the trigger down too long, the recoil can actually cause the plane to stall. Again, not sure if it's true, but I can tell you that these things sound like the fabric of reality is being ripped when they fire.

I heard the same thing Runs. Somthing about the recoil (for a lack of a better word) is almost equal to the thrust of the engines?

He said the stalling thing is not true, but it will slow down the plane a good bit! He had pictures of himself and his A-10 next to a bunker he had it......pretty cool!
