Don't put on the Aviators they fire whats loaded and what R&D comes up with.
And frankly if an Armored Infantry Bn in BMP's or a Company of T 72's is rolling up my position and CAS from A10's, firing UD rounds is gonna take em off me I'm clearing that Flyboy hot. UD rounds might
cause health problems. But 7.62, 12.7mm or MBT main gun rounds will
most definently cause an adverse effect on me and mine.
