Mighty GAU-8/A Avenger

by
Zabuza and Alexus


Description:
Introduction
Since the release of the NATO close air support plane, we were missing the power of the real A-10, the role model of the A-164. With bringing the A-164 into the game, Bohemia introduced a gun which was neither able to destroy a simple APC nor really effective against infantry. So we, passionate pilots, decided to see what we can do, and this mod is the result.

What does it do?
The core focus of the mod is to increase the damage to achieve a more realistic result. We also completely overhauled all sounds and particle effects, just take a look in our announcement trailer.

Dependencies
The mod has no dependencies with other mods.

Compatibility
The mod is compatible with multiple other A-10 mods. Among them are:
* ACE
* RHS
* Peral
* STI
* EricJ
* Fullerpj
* CUP
* Firewill

To get our support for modded vehicles working you need to copy the desired files from '/additional addon support' to '/addons'.
ArmA will only load files from the '/addons' folder. If you add our support files but don't have the mod you will get error messages.

Troubleshooting
Check if you got the newest version (refer to versions.txt)
* A vehicle, other than supported, has no ammunition (empty magazine)?
** The vehicle probably adds our weapon (or the default A-164 weapon) but not the magazine. In either case contact us here, at the Bistudio Forum or at GitHub so we can add support for this mod.
* A vehicle, that is supported from us, does not work with our mod?
** Check if you 'installed' our support correctly (refer to section 'Supported Vehicles'). Still not working? Contact us here, at the Bistudio Forum or at GitHub so we can fix the issue also for others.
