Metal Storm

I just saw this not to long ago.This is pretty sweet.

Metal storm is a 36 barreled stacked projectile machine gun boasting the highest rate of fire in the world. This weapons system has a firing rate capability of slightly greater than 1 MILLION rounds per minute. However the recoil is so great that it cannot be practically mounted on any kind of vehicle.

I didn't find a really good website with lots of info on it, but you can search Metal Storm on google and find out more about it.

It is either Austria or Australia, but I'm not sure which one. I found a video of it when I googled it...it was pretty cool!

I dont know

It fires grenades and other exploding rounds, but I don't think it fires bullets, but I'm not positive about that.

That was the rifle

That was the rifle made by the same company. The metal storm I am talking about is a 36 barrelled grenade launcher. It looks like those rocket launchers the army uses that are mounted on the back of trucks.

that thing is sick. I think I saw it on future weapons or weaponology. No one even has to man them. We can post them up all over in the desert, and when someone trips the sensors, they start blasting. Think how it would feel to have to fight an un-maned weapon.

Yes

U can set them up to where when it senses the enemy in motion, it opens fire. The scene afterwards would not be pretty.

Bad News

I just found this out...this sucks!
Metal Storm DOES NOT actually fire 1million rounds per minute. This because the gun cannot hold 1million rounds in 1 load and no mechanism has been created to load it automatically.But if it was able to be loaded automatically it could fire 1million rounds per minute.So 1million rounds per minute is only its firing rate CAPABILITY...Dang it!!:(

I can but it is a

It can but it is a estimation. as it fires 180 rounds in one load and 180 in a 1/2 sec you can get up to 1000000 a min. It may never fire that much but it may.
