Iím with RP on this one. Can you substantiate your claim that ricochets are directly related to late firing?

Itís an easy statement to make but Iím not sure itís one you can prove.

All the ricochets that Iíve heard of were just bad luck. With the Aden cannon in particular you have to get in pretty close to be accurate so itís just a hazard of the job. I canít quote ranges for a Vulcan cannon.
