Here is that Minigun video that was mentoned earlier.
Minigun in Action
Ghost, to the best of my knowledge, it was the AC-119 Shadow and Stinger configurations, they carried 4 each of the 7.62 GE miniguns. The last version of the AC-47 carried 3, and the AC-130 Spectre carries only one (but has 20mm, 40mm and 105 Recoiless as backup
RTFM, where did you get that GE Minigun t-shirt?
Which plane/helicopter carried the most miniguns ever?
Had to be this one,
I would have loooved to seen that one firing!
P95CARRY asked for a picture here:
Unfortunately, when I was grinning that big my forehead collapsed and now I’m really ugly. In the interests of not scaring any impressionable children “do it for the childrens” I can’t let anybody possibly see it.
Bytor94, ya got me with that one.... But I don't think they could have carried too many rounds to support the guns.
For the life of me I can't remember how many rounds each of the pods could carry, I'm thinking something like 1800 or 2000 rounds.
It's been 21 years or so since I worked on one and the memory just isn't there anymore. I guess one of my three functioning brain cells finally quit.
You're still ahead of me, I'm down to the last two, and they're not talking...
Seriously, that must have been an AF test platform, as I never saw one over there. I flew out of Iwakuni and Cam Rahn Bay and never did see that variant.
I bet that if they fired all those at the same time that F-4 could back-up in mid air.
