Unless the belts were ALL tracers,for effect .
ALSO US tracers are red Russians are green so THAT might be an issue.

I think its the phalanx system. They are now portable.[ If it is the Russian version it shoots even more RPM's.
These are now mounted on truck snot just ships. Pretty scary! It's called the "Goalkeeper" here in the U.S.

This is a video of a weapon being used in Syria by Russian forces. Can anyone tell me what it is? I mean, that is one hell of a fire rate and it would seem you would cut a building in half.

Talk about psychological and packing a punch.


It looks like a video game weapon to me...or myabe ghostbusters...

If it is the look and sound it is an AK-630 ....30 mm (1.2 in) 6-barreled GSh-6-30 Gatling Gun radar guided
5,000 rounds per minute 4,000 m (13,000 ft) range.
Point defense, normally used to counter missile mortar etc..

If its US then it's likely a ground based Phalanx (CIWS)

Looks to me like a badarse building splitting chain gun that must fire some devastating kinds of building/rock splitting rounds.
