I was trained on one of these while I was in the military, they can put alot of rounds down range....that's for sure! When they were used in Vietnam,
the gunners were getting in trouble for using it on human targets (you can imagine the carnage from a 20MM round!). The government said it was an
inhumane practice, they only wanted the gunners to fire on enemies that had military gear on.......so they kept firing on enemy troops anyway, saying
that their canteens, helmets, etc. were military gear (which they were). Fact is, it was just a horrible way to go I am sure!
