I suppose there is going to be some changes in tactics. 30mm cannon is a chaingun, which means it can fire single shots with great precision. As well as bursts. And 105 mm gun is not firing in bursts, of course. I am guessing that new aircraft is going to spend less time performing pylon turns and raining endless streams of gunfire at ground targets, like in Vietnam War days. Instead it would do precision strikes in one shot - one kill manner, using both guns and missiles.
