What happens if you try to merge into Obama's Motercade



"These are mounted inside the Black SUV's you see in Presidential motorcades and VIP caravans. You need the windshield wipers going to clear the spent casings. They simultaneously fire 7.62mm bullets from six barrels at up to 4000 rounds per minute. Impressive."

keep in mind those are poison tipped rounds, when death must be absolutely instant!

That is crazy! Have you seen the plating on the Limo? The SS has more firepower than most small countries.

That machine gun is overkill if you ask me. If there were any sort of assailants attacking the vehicle you would take down MANY other civilian lives with them.

This is a multipurpose weapon, only to be used as a last resort...

Like what if there are guys on a roof w/ a rocket launcher, or a low flying helicopter/plane, or terrorists w/ bombs, or the entire French army...

Hahahahaha. Yeah but a friggin minigun is rediculous. I think a 240 would do fine for any of that. Then again, is there only one of these, or do several in a convoy have this?

I KNOW! It's a minigun!! The minigun is based on the old "spray and pray" adage in which, you point the weapon in the general direction of whatever is inconveniencing you, and fire.

The thing delivers 66.7 rounds per second to the target (enough to make even dental records useless). This is the kind of weapon that you can't hide or run from. The kind of weapon that doesn't need armor piercing rounds. The kind of weapon you don't want to piss off.

Why not just strap a M15 Phalanx onto the Hummer?

Phalanx = 6000 (.70 CALIBER) explosive rounds per minute
