or LAU-61 rocket pod...each has 19 shots...

Concerning the GAU-8 >>>>> most stupid idea i have ever read here

Modification to this idea:
How about offering different ammunition configurations for existing guns (HEI-T, Ball, SLAP, AP-T etc.) for all assets including helicopters
As far as i know it is not possible to have a combat mix (4 HEI-T + 1 AP) but make me happy and correct me if i´m wrong.

i mean that lau 61 is for planes and m261 is for helicopters...if in future there will be easa for helicopters....about gau8...its the best air cannon and it IS possible to mount under a hardpoint.
imagine a plane with 4 gau 8's, it will be stronger than any weapon in arma2...

I am eager to ask you for any evidence that this can/would be done in RL, although i know you won´t find any...........surprise me :o)

Concerning the game, you can even mount a cow at a hardpoint but that´s not the focus of this mod
