wanna see BLING???

Came across these pictures from last year's airshow at Edwards AFB...! Guess it's what you might call "30 mm bling"....

Oh no! Another gun thread!

The question is...Does the Versys have enough horsepower to fire one of those things and not fly backwards? I guess I have never computed the horsepower of a GAU-8.

FWIW: Saturday morning I was watching "GEARZ" on Speed, and during one scene Stacey was holding up a bicycle (Schwinn?) with what appeared to me to be a 'Ma Deuce' (Browning .50 cal machine gun) attached to the right side of the top frame tube, and about 30" of bbl sticking out front. I don't think it was real (can you imagine TRYING to keep the bike upright with all that weight hanging off the right side?), but SURE would be cool!

I still remember the first time I heard about that 30 mm gun while I was in the RCAF. "Aviation Week and Space Technology" had a series of pics of a tank (as target) for a strafing run. First pic - tank; second - tank with some rounds impacting; third - tank with LOTS of rounds impacting; fourth - obscured by smoke as MANY rounds were impacting; and fifth - a TOTALLY destroyed tank!
At the time (classified???) there was no indication that the ammo was depleted uranium.

HOLY SH*T, BATMAN!!!
