|0006388||USAF||[All Projects] General||public||2021-06-11 13:12||2021-08-14 10:52|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006388: 30mm x 173 PGU-13/B HEI bad vs infantry|
|Description||The rhs_ammo_PGU13B_HE submunition of the A-10A GAU-8 is very bad vs infantry compared to similar ammotypes. Here are some examples.|
rhs_ammo_PGU13B_HE : indirecthit= 4;indirecthitrange= 3;
rhs_ammo_30x113mm_M789_HEDP "indirecthit": 15,"indirecthitrange": 3,
30x165mm rhs_ammo_3uof8 "indirecthit": 33, "indirecthitrange": 4,
Maybe it would make sense to increase damage a bit?

|Is it a wish/request?||No|
|Arma 3 version||2.04|
|Did you used any other mod when the error occurred?||No|
|A magainzine/ammo belt with only HE rounds would also be nice if you could add that. Currently there is only pure AP and mixed.|
Combat Mix load is the standard for the A-10 IRL, and single ammo-type magazines were never an objective for our mod. Mixed is the only magazine we have intended for use on the A-10 after the release of the Jets DLC.
Pure PGU-14 API magazine is for legacy reasons only (before Arma 3 submunitions system was enhanced for Jets DLC, it was not possible for us to have a mixed magazine). It's not there for the sake of variety - we have to keep the old class for the sake of compatibility with missions made before Jets DLC changes.
IRL, the USAF used PGU-13 only loads for a short time in Libya and then Syria, but found it to be ineffective against the mix of targets that A-10s were tasked to engage (numerous un-armoured vehicles such as trucks were seen to remain operational in spite of successful PGU-13 hits).
In more recent years, it seems (according to budget documents) that the USAF has adopted a 2/1 API/HEI combat mix instead of the legacy 4/1 API/HEI combat mix to reduce the usage of Depleted Uranium, or a 2/1 TP/HEI "urban mix" with PGU-15 training munitions replacing PGU-14 API to remove DU completely.
This largely counts against us adding a HEI-only magazine to the mod.
|Ok makes sense. Thanks for the response :). What about adding an extra alternative 2/1 API/HEI. Would that be possible ?|
