    I've never heard it in person AnnaT but I agree, the sound is awesome.

    At 1M rpm the Metal Storm is nothing but a glorified (electronically) triggerd shotgun. A very impressive shotgun though.

    You should hear the 20mm version.

    I've stood behind an LAV 25 firing its 30mm chain gun. That is some loud **** for sure...

    It would be interesting to know how many rounds are tracers compared to the rounds that aren't. Not that it would matter for the enemy.

    I wonder would it must be like for the enemy to be on the receiving end of a spectre gunship, their guns are computer controlled.

    Sucks to be you Habib.


    I love O Fortuna playing the background. That song goes with anything. You could play that while eating a cheese sandwich and it would be just as hard. I love O Fortuna, cheese sandwiches, and excessive firepower.

    sounds like a profile in a personals ad

    Thank you for the correction Ronin. Just so we don't get off on the wrong page, I am genuinely interested, can you tell me how the two are different, maybe even show some pictures? That would be cool, thanks again.

    Luckyyyy.....are/were you in the military or did you just get the oppurtunity?

    I wonder what it would be like being in an A-10 Warthog(or Thunderbolt I think?)
    with it's 30mm chain gun(If I'm not mistaken). Those things are f'ing beasts, tank hunters I tell you! What a great plane.
