This is, in my mind, the most amazing piece of weaponry I have ever seen! SA signed a contract and ordered some just last year!!


The Oerlikon Millennium 35mm Naval Gun System is a Close-in weapon system designed by Oerlikon (a Rheinmetall subsidiary) for mounting on ships. It is based on the new Oerlikon 35 mm revolver cannon land based Air defense system, and uses AHEAD ammunition. A device at the muzzle end of the barrel measures the exact speed of each round as it is fired, and automatically sets the fuse to detonate the round as it approaches a pre-set distance from the target. Each round disperses 152 small projectiles to strike the incoming target. Whilst these are too small to do major damage in themselves, the accumulation of damage from multiple strikes is expected to destroy wings and control surfaces, sensors and aerodynamics, causing the target to crash. Other firing modes are designed to be effective against surface targets such as small fast attack boats.


If I remember correctly, those projectiles is only 3.3mm by 6.3mm cylindrical.



The weapon is designed to be controlled by an external fire-control system using either radar or electro-optical trackers. It is fitted with an optional onboard observation TV camera which relays imagery to an operator console from which it can also be aimed and fired in an emergency mode. The computer system uses an open architecture and is claimed to be compatible with many existing fire control systems.

Rate of fire

-Single shot
-Rapid Single Shot: 200 rounds per minute
-Burst (automatic fire): 1000 rounds per minute

I wonder how long before a smaller, truck mount version comes out....that would be a serious turret gun on a land vehicle.....I NEED!

Reminds me of a Vulcan, but with a longer barrel.

Can you imagine how badass a twinlinked version of this, mounted to an M1 Abrams would be? Sicker than a drunk on a boat in a force nine gale is roughly what I was thinking.

A modern day, rapid firing example of an canon firing canister-shot, is a good example of what this is.

Here is SA we do also have the Oerlikon 35mm Surface to Air Twin-Gun. Its mounted on a wheel system, and gets draged by a vehicle.

The compact size and ability to program the rounds detonation are what makes this unique. I still belive that the Phalanx's specs are a bit more impressive... though it is 3x the size. Regardless, the fragmenting rounds on this thing are amazing.

Fffft. That's nothing.

NCIS did an episode about a weapon called "The Vaporizer" that could fire 100,000 rounds all at the same time.

Really? You're comparing a prototype weapon, that fires maybe .24 or .30 ammo, 36 barrels and range of a handgun with a Single barrel cannon, which fires 35mm shells, going on 15 years, and has the range of 3500m?

Note:


all at the same time


If that was true, there would have been 100 000 barrels

It did have a lot of barrels.
It was basically a wall of guns all connected to one trigger. The ammo was small metal rods kind of like a needle.

Jesus that thing must be loud as hell. I remember standing next to the Bradley when they shoot 25mm. But this is just one successive chest punch. Pretty awesome!

In that case, your Vaporizer is still on the bottom of the list.

Are you kidding me? Why i haven't heard of this before...This weapon is BAD ASS.
It sounds unreal. As it is explained in your post, you don't need bigass bullets to shoot plane or any other aircraft down.
For sure that i feel bad for guys who will get targeted by that weapon
