Watch The Stunning Polish M134G Minigun Shoot 4,000 Rounds Per Minute Featured Polish M134G Minigun

Poland isn’t really famous as a weapons maker. Images from the end of the Cold War are more aligned with workers protesting working and living under a brutal communist regime that took their freedom and squashed their dreams. What a difference 20 years of democracy brings! Now a part of NATO, the Polish Armed Forces are quietly becoming a force to recon with, with advanced weapons and tactics.

Take the M134G minigun for example.The M134G minigun is a 7.62×51 mm NATO, six-barrel rotary machine gun which can fire at a high-sustained rate of 4,000 rounds per minute. It features Gatling-style rotating barrels with an electric motor as the external power source. The “Mini” in the name is in comparison to larger caliber designs that use a rotary barrel design, 20-millimeter M61 Vulcan, and “gun” for the use of rifle caliber bullets instead of shells used by an autocannon. It’s truly a thing of beauty. See for yourself!
