Based on what?

If you were to shoot something at point blank range with the GAU-8, do you have any proof whatsoever that it'll take more rounds than the Huey's Miniguns? Like Deezle said, these aren't MBTs.

Yes, that is not MBT's but they are still armored. Im not sure that 7,62 calliber rounds would do that in real life...i have seen military exercies, and there 7,62 rounds fired by AK-47 and PK (Pyulemot Kalashnikov) cant penetrate even MTLB and BTR's armor...

The point is that 7,62 calliber is has too smal and weak round to penetrate armor vehicles. 12,7 calliber machine guns are much powerful than 7,62`s, they can use AP rounds and can penetrate armored vehice for sure, but this is very, very hard job for 7,62 rounds.

7,62x39 is usually not what is meant when reffered to 7,62mm

7,62x51 is the Standard and that round has basically the double muzzle energy.

7.62mm, Armor Piercing, M993 has a armour penetration of 7mm against high hardness armor (HHA)

It would be possible to penetrate most parts of a BRDM with such ammunition.
