GAU-8 Avenger build by specs. Also some visual/sound effects

Thank you WNP78 for health edit and ChiChiWerx for input
  1. Front Landing Gear is centered (no way for a side version to properly work in SP and get a straight trajectory during landing/takeoff. Not even angling)
  2. Gun parameters are correct (Rounds/second, velocity, optimal range etc).
  3. Level stable at max speed (439 mph at sea level).
  4. Trim tabs working as they should. They force the elevators (nose) in the opposite direction.

    @SCPCalebkid I'm actually about 90hours into an A-10C cockpit. CMC, CDU, both MFD's with working screens, and I'm probably only 16-18% done!

    Good Day/Night
    Is it ok to copy/borrow the Airframe of your Build to build my own A-10?
    I will give credit after it is posted.

    I am going to admit that I used 99% of this Build's Appearance to make my own A-10.

    This plane is more of a plane strapped to a gun than a gun strapped to a plane

    Know that I’m late but do you think you could build an a10 with the ejecting engines? @BogdanX

    @BogdanX Your gun placement is accurate and so is your loadout, I don't have anything to complain about that. The nose gear placement is also reasonable because of SP physics limitations. The fuselage and details are very close to perfection and it's a great replica.

    The flares are the only thing that made me curious, and I know this is a high-level of nitpicking. I didn't remember a pod for the A-10 with flares except for the large flares on parachutes which are used to light up the ground for better view. Even the A-10As used in operation Desert Storm in 1991 and the A-10As operated in Iraqi Freedom had these flare dispensers integrated behind the landing gear and schematics from 1999 also include flare dispensers. The museum model and some rare images of pre-1980 models are the only ones I have seen so far that don't have them.

    Starting in the late Vietnam war IR missiles became very common and were death threats to pilots. Not having flares in the A-10 from 1980 would have made every mission a suicide job.
    Even if you chose to not put the flares on for vintage style, then why put some on the ECM-pod? That makes no sense in my opinion.

    I won't publicly upload an "overhauled" version just because of some very minor details like this, but I would upload it unlisted so you can see what I mean or use it for an overhaul yourself.
