Look no farther then here, as today I will be sharing the data I have collected on the CAS weaponry from over 20 missions as a CAS pilot and a fuckton of observing, so strap in.

First, lets talk about the most common CAS strike weapon used,

The standard ammo GAU-21 gun run: Image Image

Thanks for the guide though. Will try to get some action, I have few ideas.
