Anti-aircraft weapons I guess, I've never felt a GAU-8 firing, but the plane isn't that heavy and I've seen them fire stationary without the plane moving (it's a myth that the recoil slows the plane, too). If the A10 can do it, a tank can; tanks can't fly.Is the recoil of the GAU-8 comparable to other bullet firing weapons?

Yeah, I got that.
It's just that everybody and his grandpa idolizes the katana like they're forged by God himself. Just once I'd like to see an invincible badass with a rapier or broadsword or dao or literally any other kind of sword.
The Desert Eagle is a good enough semiauto pistol and it's one of the few that can even manage to survive cycling rounds typically used in revolvers (IE the .357 and .44 Magnum) but since it has such a heavy slide that jerks back when it is fired in addition to the force of the recoil itself the gun can be neigh uncontrollable especially in .50AE and because of the extreme force the gun is subject to the parts tend to wear out quicker than say those in a Beretta M92FS 9mm. Desert Eagles are also quiet heavy, somewhere around five pounds unloaded and they use very large bullets (a .357 magnum round is about twice the length of a 9x19mm) so they're unweildy and they fire fairly slow and because they fire rimmed cartridges they tend to jam a lot more than I personally would like with a combat pistol.
They are very accurate pistols and they are firing very powerful rounds that have muzzle energies on par with most assault rifle's but they have a very low magazine capacity and are overall more of a hunting pistol than a combat pistol.
It'd do the job, not as competiently as a Glock 17 or a Colt 1911a1 but they'll kill what their bullets hit. But I wouldn't choose one considering for the space and weight that the Desert Eagle and its ammo take up I could carry both the Glock and the Colt.
I have one of those.
Yeesh. My external ballistics on cannon shells is rusty. Not sure that the 30mm DU round has enough inertia fired from a stand still to penetrate all type of armor. The round has the inertia of the plane its flying in, the vectors are additive.
For fixed base cannon, they'd probably have to cook the chemical composition of the round to get similar velocities.
That's not a noticeable difference, though.
It will still tear through armor with its 30 x 173mm Depleted Uranium - Armor Piercing Incendiary rounds. I don't think Abrams DU armor can withstand more than a second of fire, which is 70 rounds (140 with dual GAU-8's as I suggested)
I wanna get hold of one of these, someday:
The Mp7a1 Is lighter, more compact , has a faster rate of fire, and has better armor penetration capabilities
cause the human race is so insecure we need weapons to protect ourselves from other humans and other potential "threats"
