LOL cut him some slcak, at least it's not a re-post. Nice vid. Curt, that's a good show.SPOOK R/T said:The fastest firing mini gun in the world at only 3,000 rounds per min and it's only a 30 cal. I don't thing so. The 20mm guns on US Warships fire a little over 6,000 rpm and the Russian 630 ADGM fires over 8,000 rpm of 30mm shells. Fun to watch any mini gun ripping up stuff.
The Avenger is an awesome weapon mounted only on the venerable A/OA-10 attack jet. The GAU-8 is a 30mm, 7 barrel gattling gun used primarily in the air to ground role as a soft target killer and tank buster. The Avenger is the only fighter gattling gun that retains its brass for recycle after the slugs are fired. The gun fires 3,900 rounds per minute, with a mix of both armored piercing incendiary (API) and high explosive incendiary (HEI). The entire front one- third of the A-10 consists of the gun. Many joke about the GAU-8 being designed first, with the airplane built around the gun after.
