The GAU-8 Avenger is a mind-blowing machine gun designed to shoot armor-piercing depleted uranium shells. It is mounted on the A-10 Thunderbolt, a plane often known as the “tank killer” because of its high-powered machine guns that can take out ground vehicles. The Avenger can fire at a staggering speed of 70 bullets per second, and each bullet can punch through 5 cars! It has extremely forceful recoil, which is why it is mounted slightly off-center. As the barrel rotates, it is necessary that the firing barrel is on the side of the gun aligned with the center of the plane. Overall the GAU-8 Avenger is very deadly!
