Based on the simplified approach it is shown and experimentally confirmed that gas gain in wire chambers at very low pressure becomes higher on thicker wires at the same applied high voltage. This is a consequence of the fact that the first Townsend coefficient at high reduced electric field depends almost entirely on the mean free path of the electrons
