You guys every heard of that gun made by an Australian company called Metal Storm? I saw it on that Future Weapons show on Discovery.

It's totally electronic and has 36 barrels with the fastest firing rate of any gun every made.

And they also have a 3 barreled handgun that's completely electronic.

ohhh yea...Metal Storm..i saw it too on Future Weapons...wow..awesome. no way anyone or anything can escape that. its pure genius..and its pure evil. it can blanket an entire area with metal slugs coming down at incredible speeds..also based electrical firing tech.

Oh right, a million rounds a minute i believe was the firing rate? Oh course I don't think it can hold that many.

yup..that's about right. a million rounds a minute. from what i've heard its still undergoing trials but i don't think it can hold a million rounds at one go. but i'm very sure it'll get there. when i first saw..i was stunned...its like raining death and they've even started to convert it to autonomous remotely accessible dispenser pods etc. this electrical rail tech is amazing when its fully functional with the armed forces.

Yeah, but it's not so amazing when it's pointed to your head.

We're not important enough to have that monster pointed at our heads.

Yeah without a doubt! Just starting that thing up would cost more than us.
It's for more high profile targets, but seeing as how the USA currently doesn't have any enemies that would deploy such targets it's basically useless. Still better to have it and not need it. Just in case something does occur.

It is still undergoing testing and additional R&D. So far the technology hasn't been able to be miniaturized yet so the rail gun is only being tested in the Anti-Ship role. Although I have heard of reports saying that they are looking into mounting a rail gun on some sort of vehicle platform in the Anti-Vehicle role...the rail gun is different than the electric weapon mentioned above...that is still, in essence, a traditional gun it just now has an electric firing mechanism allowing a faster firing rate. Rail guns don't use a traditional propellant...gunpowder...just pure electricity to propel the projectile.

That's interesting. It would indeed be a formidable weapon.

But in the end the USA doesn't have any enemies that deploy military vehicles and ships that much. So far they're deploying infantry with all sorts of AT, AA or AP additions with different motorized vehicles. Guerrilla rabble, nothing a good old fashioned machine gun couldn't handle.

Metal Storm weapons don't use gunpowder, they use a magnetic field generating by electricity. There isn't a single moving part in their guns except the bullets themselves.

Each barrel of the gun has several bullets in it, each fired individually by a computer controller. That's impossible to do with gunpowder.
