Not exactly, it was more like a program running parallel with the A-X program. The two competing aircraft - Fairchild's YA-10A and Northrop's YA-9A was already designed although not built when General Electric and Philco-Ford were picked to compete for production of the gun. The spec's for the plane and requirements of the gun had already been decided upon, but the gun hadn't been built yet. In the beginning they used General Electric's M61 Vulcan for testing, while waiting for the gun to come along. Naturally the plane is designed to be able to accept the gun, as it's the only plane that can carry it, but to say that it's designed around the gun is somewhat of an overstatement, the military knew what they wanted, and laid out the requirements to the respective competitors, and made sure they understood everything had to fit together.

Yup, it was pretty damn important, when they commissioned the plane one of their biggest fears was Soviet Armor rolling West through Europe. At the time the Soviet had such a vast arsenal of armor that NATO, or at least the US, needed something that could effectively and cheaply (compared to the cost of a guided missile) destroy armor, and stay over the battlefield for an extended duration. That fact, coupled with the lessons learned in Vietnam regarding survivability, and the lessons learned in WWII and the Six Day War regarding aerial tankbusting, meant that the only viable solution was a 30mm autocannon with a ROF of 4000 as a minimum, so obviously it would have to be of a Gatling design of some sort. As we know General Electric came out on top, and delivered a beast of a weapon bigger than anything flown before, even outclassing the massive 75mm (PAK 40/BK 7,5cm) guns used by the Germans during WWII. As per specifications it met the 4000 rpm minimum , and even exceeded it @ 42000 rpm at it's max. speed. The pilot could choose a lower ROF @ 2100 by only driving the gun with one electrical motor, in case he needed to conserve ammo, but later the ROF was fixed at 3900 as I mentioned.

Most prisoners in Mountjoy are fierce cheeky. Last summer, prisoners formed a human pyramid to get one prisoner on the roof. While there he took a lot of drugs that were there (they have netting there to combat drugs being thrown into the yard and the drugs end up sitting there for extended periods of time)

I didn't even know that half the people on this list had any sort of Irish* heritage.*including the usual "I'm 1/16th Irish" people.
