Don't snipers target specific areas like the brain stem or the middle of the chest if the brain stem is not available (americans).

Incendiary rounds are meant to take out light vehicles. Actually it is considered illegal by Geneva to use incendiary rounds against infantry because as you can imagine it is a pretty f***** up way to die.
Anyways those DU rounds an A-10 carries is more lethal against tanks and light vehicles than incendiary rounds are.
So why aould they carry incendiary rounds if their standard load out is superior?

Fewer shots for more effect against soft skin, and very light armour.

However it's very amusing that even when he gets caught time and again making up bullshit, after someone gives a thorough, logical explanation of why he's wrong, he still likes to accuse his opponent of not using logic, making things up, being stupid, etc - even though he's the one who just got caught making up bullshit.

My bad, they are mostly 7.62mm spec.
I guess the first thing that popped into my head was the m107 Barette.

It does sort of stick out doesn't it?
Such a huge MoFo it tends to overshadow everything else.

Proof that the ISD bridge tower is FUCKING GONE:
Note the location of the ISD bridge tower- you can't see anything behind it...
AS THE DUST SETTLES:
NOTE - NOW YOU CAN SEE THE WINDOWS AND ENGINES OF THE EXECUTOR THRU THE DEBRIS FIELD - ERGO, THE BRIDGE TOWER IS FUCKING GONE! You can even see a large piece of debris floating around where the tower SHOULD be!
And no, it didn't move... it wasn't moving that fast pre-impact for something like that to happen... in fact, if it moved any significant distance, at some point it should have been VISIBLE as it passed outside the dust cloud, and THEN off screen... however, we did not see that.
Nasor, Scott, I will concede that the bridge survived if you can come up with SOME fashion of a logical argument against it.

aren't there still sniper rifles in the old "long" 7.62mm? that thing had high muzzle velocity if i recall. don't know about the stopping power though. they were made for riflemen tactics so emphasis was on long range.
TWS, i did consider adding the fighter wings to the ISD in the simulator. i even scripted the bombs on Tie-Bombers my using limited charge short range pulse weapons. i just haven't decided wether to make them independant entities or part of the shuttle launch framework. i fear the AI will not use them if i add them to the shuttles. at least not in the proper way.
Nasor, well near everyone that has wached the movie can tell you the tower is not there. some hav proposed it got "detached" in stead of destroyed, but the fact is where it used to stand, now only dust remains.
sorry for being absent for so long, but i'm buisy as hell

An 80 mm is the same size as the Panzer's main gun in WWII.
Also, incendiary rounds detonate when they hit a solid thing. This is okay for soft skinned vehicles because often enough the thin armor wont detonate it until the round has passed inside of the vehicle.
But with tanks, the round detonates on the outside and is stopped by the tank armor a lot of the time. So effectively an incendiary round is not effective towards armor.
But depleted uranium core rounds of the avenger are about 2 pounds each and half a foot long, when those things hit the tank at 3500 feet per second, they have enough momentum or as oli would like me to say "kinetic Energy" that they literally rip apart the tank armor they hit.
They WILL pierce that tank armor, and when 50 rounds hit a tank and 99% of them pierce the armor, there is not a snowball's chance in hell that tank will survive.

Once more (I'd mentioned in a previous post), when Soong called Data and Lore back home, he stated on screen that Data had developed far beyond what he himself ever expected.

But if your using a 50 calibre sniper rifle, it doesnt matter where you hit him that guy will be dead, because even if you hit and appendage, that round will literaly rip that part of the body off, and you cannot deal with that shock, trauma, and blood loss and keep the guy alive.

Trust me... it's real - it's 76mm, but none the less
And the incendiary rounds are for LIGHTLY armored vehicles mate. Not tanks.

er... can you try that again fedecell? Not sure what you mean

Especially if they were hit by the incediary rounds for that sniper rifle.
And also, incendiary rounds are meant to pierce light vehicle but not tanks. If you have a gun that can tear a tank to pieces why the hell would you use a weaker round for a lighter vehicle?
YOU WOULD NOT. You would use the better armor piercer.
