I can't wait until we have robots carrying those slaughtering everyone and everything in sight. It will be beautiful.

Description said:
If you want to scare or intimidate your enemy this is not the right weapon, it sounds weaker than a .22 caliber handgun, you won't be scaring anybody with the sound.

Somehow I doubt it sounds "weaker than a .22" in person.

Gatling guns are uber.

The person who wrote that is a fool and has never been near a 20mm cannon while it's firing. You can hear them for miles around, and it will scare the shit out of anyone, especially if its pointed at you. Everyone knows this.

This is pretty close. My dad used to work on these back when he was in the Navy. In fact I still have one of the 20mm dummy rounds he gave me, the bullet itself is about 3 inches long.

And, yes, that's a missile it's shooting down.

That gun could take on most of North Korea's old army by itself.

Hopefully it will work well against amphibious landing craft.


Or.... maybe they can mount them on amphibious landing craft and use them to put down the communist rebels.

Works better in an A-10... ;)

The A10 is a 30mm.

The right-most round is a 30mm round. To the left of that is a 20mm. A bit of a difference. ;)

Also, to the left of that is a .50 BMG and something else.

Pshaw. The P-39 fired a 37mm round. Now THAT was a round.

She fires $200 custom tooled cartidges at 10,000 rounds a minute.
It costs $400,000 to fire this weapon for 12 seconds...



Who touched Sasha?

Just love that sound. Is it mainly the motor or the huge number of bullets being fired?

That's awesome

Anti-aircraft I presume?

That or missles/mortars I guess. I sure wouldn't want to be in a plane that was shooting at.
