This could possibly be a dupe, but I can't search the General Board. Video is 11mb in size and is very entertaining.

The metalstorm is pretty sweet - especially ofr missile defense for ships - and maybe tanks!

It's been around for at least a year, IIRC.

Its been around for going on at least 10 years now. I see it being usefull in anti missile roles and possible remote area denial weapons. But for anything else i cant think of a good role for it.

It doesnt work as a gun in the conventional sense. It has multiple barrels preloaded with a set number of rounds. I dont think it can be reloaded in the field. Basically lets say it has 10 barrels each with 25 rounds already packed inside of each barrel. There is no feed device its just a barrel with 25 rounds already loaded in it kind of like a muzzle loader.

The set ups i have seen have been boxes kind of like whats on the back of the MLRS and they are just hoisted into place fired then replaced.

I would think as an external gun pod or maybe a compacted version in aircraft, with appropriate targeting systems could put the gun back in the running as an air to air weapon. Would also be a great external gun system for helicopters. Imagine a supressed system used in place of a claymore, quiet but effective area denial able to be refired as needed.

"You see, this is why we need to renew the Assault Weapons Ban. If we let this ban expire, then before you know it, terroists will be mounting these weapons on wolves and small tigers, and then sending them into our police stations and National Gaurd armories to wipe out America's defense. We must not let this ban expire!"
