Man holding a 30mm round for the GAU-8 Avenger. The A-10 can only fire in high rate, which is 3900 rounds per minute. That’s 65 rounds p/s.

Fly high and use PGMs is most effective and safe. In order to be out of the missiles kinematic range you must have a combination of 3 things; altitude, distance, and be able run away from the missile.

If you are going to be doing a gun attack you will be a prime target for pretty much any SHORADS. Probably the safest way would be to fly nap of the earth, pop up at the last second, make your attack, then haul ass. But even then you run a huge risk against modern SHORADS. This exploits the fact that you will be under the horizon and immune to attack until the very last second. Of course if the enemy spread his SHORADS out you could get caught in the middle of a bunch of them.

The thing is that HIMADS (SA-10 for example) are good at engaging high to medium altitude targets, this is why IADS are layered, both SHORADS and HIMADS working together. HIMADS are easier to counter in a way because they are large systems that can be discovered by various means and attacked, this is much much more difficult to do with SHORADS (a guy hiding in the bushes with an Igla vs an entire SA-10 site).
