Default Special option request for gun loading....

I had never heard of this but it's super interesting the idea of skipping a round every 50 rounds.

Seems strange to me that the gun would stop dead when it hits the gap (isn't the M61 specifically designed to continue operating even if a round fails to fire?) but would it be possible to implement something like this under special options or in the ME?

Actually it is already an option while in the ground. Bring up your knee board and instructions for it are shown.

Yes, it can be set to 50, 100 or 200 rounds bursts. I wish we had an option for less, like 25 as well... when you have attained some training utilizing the M61ED watercan at point blank range, you're a marksman par excellene in the Tomcat and anything in excess of 25 rounds is a waste of valuable ressources anyway

On the topic of the gun, what load should I be selecting for air to air?
