I'm pretty sure if it was called XMA6, not XMAG 6. Though I Have nothing against a XMA66.


You may be right there I've always payed little attention to missile names being as I rarely change types so my memory of the names is a little obscure to me right now. I'll look into it (I've been feeling like doing a random AC6 mission anyways) when I do I'll confirm it, but it seems really likely that your right.

I know this is a necro and everyone knows but well I just wonder would an RL aircraft cannon be as powerful as AC6's GUN would be? Airplanes have much lower health than in previous games when it defends against gunfire I see

As I recall, this is due in part to the fact that AC6`s damages system sets damage inflicted on the target as inversely related to the distance from the target when firing the gun. The closer you get, the more effective it is on a damage-per-bullet basis. There have existed some absurdly powerful aircraft cannons (The A-10`s cannon being a prime example), but there really aren`t that many in use.

While a GAU-8 is incredibly powerful, it is a litte overkill if you're just going to down a plane. A M61A2 Vulcan, which is the machinegun mounted on a F-22, outputs 110 rounds a second. A one-second burst driving 110 high explosive incendiary rounds into a fighter, assuming all your rounds hit, will probably tear any plane to shreds.

The only little gripe i had about AC6's plane lineup was the F-15E's appearance rather than the F-15 Eagle itself, and that the plane roster should have been expanded to what it was like in AC5 and ACZ.  They should've probably also made the FAEB available to the F-15E and Tornado rather than limit it to the A-10.

Well the only 3 planes to get the FAEB are the MTD, A-10, and Falken, consistently. Plus the F-15E already has so much going for it. Giving it FAEBs would be kind of game breaking.

Yeah, I guess so. But it still would be nice.
