This report describes firings of the A-10/GAU-8 weapon system on 7 November 1979 against a Soviet tank company simulated by 10 combat loaded M-47 tanks. The pilot making the firing passes attacked at low altitude and used correspondingly low dive angles in order to simulate movement through a hostile air defense system.

Significant results include catastrophic damage to 3 tanks,
