That's a total combined firepower of about 18 thousand rounds per minute, ie 300 massive armor piercing rounds per second. Total overkill. You don't even need to aim with one minigun, let alone 3. I'd go for a triple rocket launcher any day, though.

If I become rich, I want to make something similar, except much more powerful. A minigun that shoots tactical missiles. > Strap three together and you have the destructive power of an ICBM without the radiation. :drools:

The spectre can supress an entire battlefield because it's guns can target different locations. Also, they fire armor piercing (tank busting) rounds that can knock down buildings. And yes, the 120mm cannon trailing out the back end. I want me one of those!

I used to have a picture, still do somewhere, of some crazy redeck's creation - basically he made a minigun by bolting 6 or so high-powered rifles together... post when I find it.

tell ya what. hes right. at 18 thousand rounds per min, and say in an engagement you need to supress an area for 6 minutes. doing the math, youve spent i belive about 78,000 rounds. thats a lot. at least a small jeeps worth. now tell me if its worth it. gimmie a couple of tactical rocket launchers, some snipers and the rest invested in good old rifles any day.
