|0004590||USAF||[All Projects] General||public||2018-09-14 06:24||2021-03-05 20:32|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004590: GAU-19/A should have a higher rate of fire|
|Description||The rate of fire of GAU-19/A is up to 2000r/m. In the game it said GAU/LO and the ROF is about 1300r/m. So it is possible to add "GAU/HI" mode?|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Is it a wish/request?||Yes|
|Arma 3 version||1.84|
|Did you used any other mod when the error occurred?||No|
|Which mods?||AH-6, GAU-19/A|
GAU-19As firerate is selectable to be either 1000 RPM or 2000 RPM. The current 1300 RPM firerate is only for the HMMWV GAU19A conversion kit.

"The GAU-19/A is designed to accept standard NATO .50 caliber M9-linked ammunition. The rate of fire is selectable to be either 1,000 or 2,000 rounds per minute. The Humvee armament kit version fires at 1,300 rounds per minute"

Will set it to 1000/2000 for the time being but have numerous reasons to suspect that the gun on AH-6M may have been limited to 1300rpm to reduce recoil force yaw, vibration and barrel wear. The guys behind the MELB mod must have set that fire rate for a reason.
The lighter GAU-19/B that was developed for late OH-58 blocks a couple of years before the AH-6J-to-AH-6M upgrade, was likewise limited to 1300rpm, and the rate on GAU-19/A has been adjusted for other uses where vibration was a problem on small platforms similar to AH-6 (1250rpm for Naval use, and as previously mentioned 1300 for HMMWV use). 1300 seems to have emerged as the optimal rate for the weapon since the 2010s.
I just can't find sources that categorically state if the gun's fire rate is limited on AH-6 vs the full rate it enjoyed on the MH-60 and CH-47. Only that it doesn't seem to have been equipped on the AH-6J until the 2000s GWOT created an urgent operational requirement, and became a standard part of the Littlebird's arsenal with the AH-6M
