Vulcan Cockpit Sound – Aircraft Weapons SFX Library

The M61 Vulcan Cockpit Sound is a sound of gatling-style rotary cannon firing from the airplane cockpit. For instance, Grumman F-14 Tomcat, the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle, General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon and McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet use it. It fires 20 mm rounds at an extremely high rate (typically 6,000 rounds per minute). The M61 and its derivatives have been the principal cannon armament of United States for fifty years.

Each of the cannon’s six barrels fires once in turn during each revolution of the barrel cluster. The multiple barrels provide both a very high rate of fire (around 100 rounds per second). And contribute to prolonged weapon life by minimizing barrel erosion and heat generation. Most aircraft versions of the M61 are hydraulically driven and electrically primed. A hydraulic drive motor through a system of flexible drive shafts rotate the gun rotor, barrel assembly and ammunition feed system.

The M61 Vulcan Cockpit sound consists of the firing start sound – [START] file, [LOOP] audio file 10 seconds long and the ending file – [END], which should be played at the end of the shooting. The Aircraft Weapons SFX Library includes 51 audio files.

GSh23 Autocannon Sound – Aircraft Weapons SFX Library

The GSh23 Autocannon Sound is a sound of a twin-barreled 23 mm autocannon developed in the Soviet Union, primarily for military aircraft use. It entered service in 1965, replacing the earlier Nudelman-Rikhter NR-23 cannon.

The GSh-23 works on the Gast Gun principle developed by German engineer Karl Gast of the Vorwerk company in 1916. It is a twin-barreled weapon in which the firing action of one barrel operates the mechanism of the other. It provides a much faster rate of fire for lower mechanical wear than a single-barrel weapon.

Late-model MiG-21 fighters, all variants of the MiG-23, the SOKO J-22 Orao, the HAL Tejas and IAR 93 have this cannon. Likewise the tail turrets of the Tupolev Tu-22M bomber and some late-model Tu-95s. In that application, it had the unusual ability to fire infrared flares and chaff rounds. Therefore it function as both a weapon and a dispenser of anti-missile countermeasures.

The GSh23 Autocannon sound consists of the firing start sound – [START] file, [LOOP] audio file 10 seconds long and the ending file – [END], which should be played at the end of the shooting. The Aircraft Weapons SFX Library includes 51 audio files.

GAU-8 Avenger Sound – Aircraft Weapons SFX Library

The GAU-8 Avenger Sound is a sound of a 30 mm seven-barrel Gatling-style autocannon. The United States Air Force’s Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II typically mount it. Designed specifically for the anti-tank role, the Avenger delivers very powerful rounds at a high rate of fire. The Goalkeeper CIWS ship weapon system also use the GAU-8/A, which provides defense against short-range threats such as highly maneuverable missiles, aircraft, and fast maneuvering surface vessels.

The GAU-8/A is extremely accurate and can fire 4,200 rounds per minute without complications. The 30-mm shell has twice the range, half the time to target, and three times the mass of projectiles fired by guns mounted in comparable close air support aircraft.

The A-10 engines were initially susceptible to flameout when subjected to gases generated in the firing of the gun. When the GAU-8 is being fired, the smoke from the gun can make the engines stop, and this did occur during initial flight testing. Gun exhaust is essentially oxygen-free, and is certainly capable of causing flameouts of gas turbines. The A-10 engines now have a self-sustaining combustion section. When the gun is fired the igniters come on to reduce the possibility of a flameout.

GSh301 Sound – Aircraft Weapons SFX Library

The GSh301 Sound is a sound of a 30 mm autocannon. Soviet and later Russian military aircraft use it. It entered into service in the early 1980s.

It is a single-barreled, recoil operated autocannon. Unlike many postwar cannons, it uses a short recoil action instead of a revolver cannon or Gatling gun mechanism. The GSh-30-1 has a rate of fire of 1,800 rounds per minute. It customarily limited to 1,500 rounds per minute to reduce barrel wear. Despite that, its barrel life is quite short: 2,000 rounds. When firing a continuous burst of 100–150 rounds, the barrel is put under so much stress that it has to be replaced.

In combination with a laser rangefinding/targeting system, it is extremely accurate. As well as powerful, capable of destroying a target with as few as three to five rounds. It has been deployed on several different types of fighter aircraft: Su-27, Su-30, Su-33, Su-34, Su-35, Su-37 and Su-57, Mig-29 and others.

The GSh301 sound consists of the firing start sound – [START] file, [LOOP] audio file 10 seconds long and the ending file – [END], which should be played at the end of the shooting. The Aircraft Weapons SFX Library includes 51 audio files.
