I live near an Airforce bombing range and am hearing some serious ordinance....
From time to time, we hear bombs and such coming from the nearby bombing range. Lately, we've been hearing some serious large caliber rapid fire ordinance being fired off. It's not quite like the A-10's gatling gun, this sounds a little slower but larger caliber and lower pitch. Any idea what it could be coming from? I can also hear the C-130 gunship belting out the 105mm shells and it's not that. Any ideas?
It was pretty kewl earlier watching an air refueling of the C-130 gunship directly overhead. It was a little unsual to see it so close, that pic is not taken with a zoom lens. Normally I only get to see F-16s.

4th night in a row, man these guys are lighting up the range for 2 1/2 hours a night. I've got to find out what that heavy caliber rapid fire is. Definately not the A-10.

I think the newer spectres now have 25mm chain guns ( like on the bradley afv) instead of the 20mm vulcan gatling guns. Some might have a similar single barrled 30mm gun in place of the 25mm guns and the old bofors 40mm cannon.
