    Even though it seems he was a complete nutter, he deserves a bit of respect. That's quite an impressive piece of engineering, and at least he avoided hurting anyone on his rampage.

    Have you seen the size of the GAU-8?? They designed the airplane around it :p

    As for that guy, well done, if the politicians don't do their job right, they need to be put into place by the people that elected them.

    70 30mm depleted uranium slugs per second, each travelling at 990m/s.

    Considering 6 rounds from a GAU-8 will destroy most modern MBTs, is it so hard to believe? :)

    Maybe one round couldnt do it... but these are tank killers. Takes just 6 rounds to own a Russian Main Battle tank and those cannons fire at 4200 rounds per minute. KillDozer wouldnt have stood a chance!
