Could 30mm GAU (A-10) work in an AMR or is it too much... whats the upper limit..25mm?

Hum... forget about the 25x137 mm which is using between 90 g (full bore) and 100 g (APDS) of propellant, or nearly twice as much as the 20x139 mm (~55 g) which is already probably outside the realm of a practical AMR.

The 14.5x114 mm (~30 g of powder), 20x102 mm (~36 g) and 30x113 (~50 g) are probably delivering as much blast & energy as you can handle in a (not so) portable weapon.

This popped up on reddit today, pretty nice looking AMR. No word yet on caliber.
