    Slight difference-

    GAU-8 fired 30x173 rounds at 4,200rpm
    30x173 API round 425g at 988m/s

    MK108 fired 30x90RB rounds at 600 to 650rpm
    30x90RB HE round 330g at 505m/s

    the GAU-8 is very impressive, interesting to see the burning gases coming out of the breech when fired....

    Would make an interesting 'field version' for the 109 Gondolas

    Was Mk-108 motor driven either?
    So if they both have same bore then the early one is papa to the latter?
    I know, you don't think so either.

    Please. They will claim anything. Like liquid fuel rockets, and the B-2 bomber.

    Impressive...it stops sounding like a gun and more like a loud burp. Absolutely incredible destruction...I saw what one of these can do to dummy targets in an Omnimax film...unbelievable!
