Before second guessing me, you should READ what I wrote, I said SPACED POWDER!
Because in this "crappy machinegun" the idiot put gun powder between each round.
The germans applied the same concept, only rather putting the powder between each round, they put the spaced the powder in "seperate adjointed
tubes" that were set to go off when the ONE round was at a certain location. Hence powder bag one would go off and the round would begin to travel
through the tube, at a certain point powder bag two would go off and so forth, in theory building up speed until it was ejected from the tube on its
course to its final destination.
They built their prototypes and were trying to perfect the actual working gun, I believe somewhere in the Rhineland when the allies too that area of
Since the gun was not mobile they couldn't just run off with it, the project which begun even before the war, was lost. Leaving anzio annie to be
the largest Artillery to ever have been constructed, and used....I think the russians still hold for the largest artillery, or at least the largest
cannon ever built, but it was never fired I don't think.
Perhaps you should rethink YOUR statement.
A hand gun does not have 180,000 rounds per minute capability, that is 3000 rounds per second and a tec-9 fires only 30 rounds per second!
A gatlin gun fires some nearly 1000 rounds per second I think it was, though I only heard the figure once (am friends with people who know this
subject more than you or I so some of this is hear-say that I am hard at remembering)
I guess you know nothing of strategy, or you'd realize the worthless peice of crap this weapon is.
The tec-9 is one of the most worthless small machine guns available because you exhaust your entire ammunition with one pull of the trigger.
This heap of junk is no different. I keep saying to myself, but maybe I should voice it more loudly now, that an army of snipers would beat the sh.it
out of a force of machine gun happy individuals. This has even been proven in Vietnam, where the average soldier fired about 300 rounds for every
round that hit the enemy.
Snipers in well placed positions would cause more damage, its not how far can you get with 30 men, but how many men must they lose to take over your
position held by just one!...and somethimes all you need is one bullet.
Perhaps you've not heard of this most remarkable story from Vietnam....of a Viet Cong soldier, who was told to gaurd a village BY HIMSELF with 10
bullets. He knew this is retarded, so he looked about, and noticed that the village had only several entry points by road, so he lined the entry
points with sharpend "pikes" that were coated with feces from farm animals, and lay in wait. Some time later a US Marine company was approaching
the town, and if YOU know anything about the military you'd know that when you are under fire you disperse, the viet cong waited for them to near and
fired ONE round....killed 30 men and wounded another 30 and the marines with drew.
Don't tell me that this technological monstrocity has ANY strategic value, other than to decimate a forest.
PS. I forgot to mention that the roads, in fact the country side, was lined with tall grass, so they could not see their awaiting doom in the grass,
like running into a bayonette in the dark.
