Thanks to its six-barrel system, the M134 Minigun is able to provide a very high fire superiority compared to single-barrel machine guns, usually used mounted on a vehicle or helicopter. The machine gun, also known as the Gatling type, is powered by a 28V DC or 115V AC electric motor, and each of the munitions is fired when barrel reaches the top. The weapon's rate of fire can be adjusted according to the user requirement. M134 fires 7,62x51mm fire NATO rounds. The gun, which can reach 6,000 rounds per minute can be effective in a 1,500 meters. The weight of the system is 16.3 kilograms.
