This Gatling Gun Is Giving Terrorists Across The World Nightmares

Behold the GECAL 50 aka the terrorist killer. This gatling gun was designed back in 1982 by Lockheed Martin but is getting a new breath of life in the US.

The US military recently made a large purchase of these three barrel guns from General Dynamics – who now manufactures the gun – to begin mounting them to helicopters.

The guns fire the 50 BMG (12.7×99mm) cartridge at a clip of 2000 rounds in 1 minute.

But this gun’s use hasn’t been limited to just US, several of our allies around the globe utilize them such as Colombia, Mexico, Japan and Oman.
