Its one reason i never get afganskii in my deck knowing that the vulcan is MUCH better against ground units for the same price for one of the dumbest reason
The whole discussion is about whether no reload is a good thing or a bad thing, so saying nobody deserves it kinda assumes the conclusion. I used to think it's universally a bad thing, since it only helps if you for some reason want to delay and spread out your damage, aka in the rare case of suppressing infantry for long periods. Sigird showed me that it's also good in some cases against multiple planes where you want to scratch all of them without having to micro to do it, but I still think that overall it's worse than burst fire.
Pivads can already do 7-9 dmg if a plane stays overhead for ~5s, if you add a brief reload of 3s or so and frontloaded all that damage to keep the same overall rof, OPvulcan would acquire a new meaning. Make the reload longer and you'd have single pivads consistently killing planes.

Even air to ground? I thought only air to air.
I think nick originally found this for air to ground specifically. I'm not even sure if it applies for air to air.
