Because MS an arc, would ensure that it is hiting a maximum amount of targets.
Again why shoot 100,000 rounds into one target, when you could spread the rounds out by angling the barrels so as to hit a whole feild of area.
You're wrong about the timing though, the Russians were not out producing the Germans until they had already been pushing them back through the
Ukraine, the turn around was thanks entirely to Russian sacrifice, their weather, and the much needed just in time Saw automatic? Or is it called
Squad Automatic (can't remember which)...
Although certain aspects of production helped them, I still remember and found it quite interesting, about the factory near to moscow I believe (I may
be off on location but whatever) where it was producing tanks and the tank crew would drive it out of the factory to the front about 20 miles away,
because the germans couldn't shut down the factory there, they did get over ran there.
But as for the bombing, it is ineffective everywhere, even in Afghanistan.
Don't you think if there is a way they will not take it? No one is going to be bombed undefended, and like wise, no one is going to sit in a big
field and be wasted by this over-powered machine gun.
This weapon's only use would be if the enemy fought using 18th and 19th century tactics. There'd you get a show.
As far as defense from incoming projectiles, that is what the Laser research is better suited for.
This weapon is too late...it would have been something for vietnam...but not today, where we are on a verge of a major paradigm shift.
