Unlikely to happen since the gun is primarily used on ground targets which would allow the aircraft to "coast" if you will. I do however recall one "discovery wings" special where an A-10 shot down a helicopter with the gun... a bit overkill i think, but then again cheaper than a missile by long ways.

Vulcan 20mm. Pretty much standard on All USAF fighters these days. The sweep wing design was pretty genius and in the F-14 resulted in one sexy bird.

I agree, unlikely to happen. My "stall" comment was just a theoretically possible thought. I know our A10 pilots are smart enough not to do such a thing.

I've head good things about the Zombie Max ammo. Can't blame them for cashing in on the zombie craze

Depends on the gun. Hollow points for most, Hornady Critical Defense for the 9mm's, 40's and .45's.
