    Nothing quite so relaxing as an afternoon of cheap plinking with your Gatlin gun. :supergrin:

    I heard somewhere that as your rate of fire increases, (such as the mini guns' incredible ROF) your accuracy-ratio increases.

    I think it was an episode of futureweapons where they showed how many hits you can achieve with an M60 from a helicopter vs how many hits they got with a mini gun from the same helicopter. It was like a 100 to 1 ratio. The understanding is when you shoot from a moving helicopter you will only be on target for 1 or 2 seconds tops....so you might as well get as much lead on target in those 1 or 2 seconds as possible. Everything else off target really doesnt matter.

    We had a mini on one of our tracks for a while and it was great but you couldn't keep enough food for it.
