We really loved getting our hands on a case of the ammo loaded for the miniguns back when. It was a cut above the M60 7.62mm linked ammo in cleanliness and all. Had to be to avoid jams I would suppose. Looonnng belts. Our Huey gunships still only had two M60s on each side and were well understood if jammed. Had an Armey gunship land at our hotpad one day and the pilot point to one of his miniguns and tell us it was jammed.
We looked at each other like, WTF are we supposed to do about it? Never even seen one up close before and this guy wants us to unjam it?
Maybe if he had left it with us for a few days so we could have some fun, then pick it up later and drop off a few cases of beer for our trouble..........
I still remember our Apaches getting engines clogged from the 1st war :/ (and the GPS getting screwed up:p).. I believe they fixed that problem for the second..
(Not exactly OT, but guns and engines during war ;))

Hehe.. if he had dropped it off for a few days.. it would have ‘gotten lost in inventory’ :^D (and ended up on a tripod on the defensive perimeter :^D
