GATLING GUN!! MUST SEE VIDEO!!!!!
Vampire Bat.com ^ | 25 Jan 05 | Compfused.com

Posted on 01/31/2005 2:42:50 PM PST by datura

I just found this over at Vampire Bat, did a search for it in here, and didn't find it. I know there are lots of posters in here who have never had the opportunity to see a Vulcan or other multi-barreled weapon fire - well, HERE IT IS!! Once you see this video you'll want to show it to everyone you can........Damn I wish we'd have had those machine guns in our units when I was in.

If you have a dial up connection, be patient. IT IS WORTH THE TIME TO DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEO!!!!

A sweet little toy to help send all the nice al Queda boys very quickly to their Islamic blue heaven.

Very Sweet!!!!

Too bad it is not shown in it's most glorious form, which is to couple the gatlin with howitzers and mini-guns on an AC-130

Just great! It's FOUR weeks PAST CHRISTMAS. A little late for my wish list. Not that it would do any good, I didn't get my pony either.

How many box tops for one of those!!! Very cool, but you'd have to reload 200 rounds a day for month just to get a minute of firing time. Still, I loved the video.

Thanks for the link.

Best Regards

We had some AC-130 Spectres support us with those cannons. It looked like a laser beam opening the ground and buildings up like a zipper. Amazing.

Nothing on earth like Spectre firing support, is there? I loved having either Spectre or A-10s firing overhead, but hated Cobras. You never quite felt sure about where the ordnance was going from a Cobra.

It finally gave me something I could picture in my mind as to what the wrath of God could be like.

During the early to mid 1980s I worked for General Dynamics in Ft. Worth Texas maker of the F-16 Flying Falcon and previously the F-111. It is now a division of Lockheed Martin. I worked in the stealth groups that analyzed RADAR signatures of military components. One of our short range sites was close to the boresight range where technicians would calibrate the Gatlin machine gun on each F-16 as part of its final checkout.

The control system for our RADAR rannge was 100-200 feet away from the machine gun range. Several times, I and my co workers would nearly crap our collective pants when we would hear the 0.5 second burst of fire power. It didn't matter to try and dunk or cover your ears. By the time you hear the start of the test, by the time you turn around and look, all that's left is a cloud of smoke wafting above the dirt bunker that caught all the flack. It was incredible.

I remember pilots telling us that the gun would cause the jet to vear to one side from the recoil.

Good video. Star Wars comes to mind.

For all of you not aware of the fact. When you see the video, every 5th round is a tracer. It makes it that much more awesome.

Saw that. Depending on what side your on, that could either be a vision that brought joy or sheer pants filling terror.

That is what first popped in my mind. Those tracers look very much like Star Wars Blaster Fire.
