I had no idea you would need to get so close with the Vulcan. I assumed that, with a much higher muzzle velocity, you would have increased stand-off.

That cease is actually closer than we use currently in the Hawk. Although we used to get closer on the T1. Not by much though.

Interesting points about the possible malfunction as well. Scary!
