New Standard in Weaponry

Behold, the Dillon Aero M134D, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's brand new layer of protection. This six-barreled gatling gun fires at a rate of 3,000 rounds per minute and is fed from a 3,000 or 4,400 round chain magazine. Weighing in at a mere 57 pounds, the weapon itself is five times lighter than the ammunition that it fires (4,400 round magazine and crate)!

According to the manufacturer, the guns are being outfitted onto Army and Navy vehicles such as helicopters. I can say with no trace of doubt that I would feel safe behind a couple of those babies ...
