Transmision cant be a physics major; he would have at least spelled element right


and yeah, most guns arent fired that long because they lose accuracy rather quickly. Thats why you see soldiers shooting bursts on CNN instead of going rambo style with a chaingun.

Yes. I do.

3900 rounds per minute is simply the firing rate. The gattling gun's drum capacity on the A-10 is at about 1500 rounds. If you fired the gun for only a half second you have dispersed 32 rounds, for 4 seconds 260 rounds. There is no need to shoot for a straight minute.


note that a gatling gun have up to 6 barrels...

just a heavily modified more controlled tesla coil.
Maybe I am wrong but both work on electrical principal
and both use large conrtolled charge for projectile propulsion.

Well, for one thing, there is no such thing as a tesla coil gun! A railgun uses opposing magnetic fields to accelerate a projectile. A tesla coil is just a resonant air-cored transformer, that generates high frequency AC at thousands (or millions) of volts. It has nothing to do with weapons.

And to "Mr. England," all it takes is a 14 year old to know that you aren't making sense.
And I am 14.

anything can theoretically be used as a weapon. but i'm guessing the one guy was refering to the Tesla Coil in Return to Castle Wolfenstein

So I guess there is no feasible way to make a gun which could emmit high amounts of gamma radiation lethally from say, a radium source?
