M134 - The Modern Gatling Gun
Ian of Forgotten Weapons really does get to play with all the cool toys. In the first video he reviews the General Election M134 minigun in 7.62x51. He gives an in-depth explanation of how they work and especially how they feed the ammunition.
Ian has produced a second, shorter, follow-on video showing the M134 minigun firing in slow motion at both 2,500 and 5,000 frames per second. It is amazing how hypnotic watching a minigun can be. That is, so long as you aren't the target of it!
