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.

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.

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.
