    Multiple Barrel Small Arms

    If anyone here is up for discussing about multiple barrel small arms (IE: SMGs, Assault Rifles, GPMGs etc) or finds any post here.

    Asides that, does anyone here think it would be effective on the battlefield, for example as an alternative to barrel cooling or for rapid fire purposes?.
    I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

    I am very familiar (ie instructor/armorer) on the Minigun so ask away.

    No issues when mounted on a fixed mount for defense or offensive on a vehicle/aircraft. Not practical for dismounted use as the rate of fire is too high (3000rpm) where you couldn't carry enough ammo to feed (50 rds per sec). Total system weighs about 900lbs with 9000 rds of ammo. Power pack is 70 lbs alone.
