An A-10 from the 355th Wing at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., delivers a volley of 30mm rounds to a stationary ground target during the Hawgsmoke A-10 gunnery and bombing competition at the Barry Goldwater Range complex in Arizona.

There are few sounds more welcome to U.S. military personnel than the sound of an A-10 Thunderbolt II's GAU-8/A Avenger 30mm autocannon raining down a hail of lead on an unsuspecting enemy force.

But here's a question: How the hell do you actually spell (and, in turn, pronounce) that sweet, sweet sound of freedom?

To that end, we're attempting to build a regional map of A-10 autocannon pronunciations, from BRRRT to VVVTTT — and we need your help.
