Something Just Occurred

The Son Tay raid was Army Special Forces for the ground component.

They used the GAU-5A instead of the XM177E2.  The only difference between the two is the forward assist, but the XM177E2 was the Army gun and the GAU-5A was the Air Force gun...

I'll bet budgets were involved somehow.

Anyone got WeaponsMan's email?  I'll bet he knows!
