Estovakian M167 VADS in action.

The M167 Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS) is a 20mm, light anti-aircraft gun; essentially a ground-based version of the M61 Vulcan, some versions of the VADS were towed, while others were fitted to modified M113 APCs. The M167 has been retired from US service.


VADS AA guns are encountered in several titles; in most games it poses little danger to the player, although the ones that appear in Ace Combat Zero and 6 seem somewhat more accurate than in other games.
