History[ edit ] Background: Gatling later replaced the hand-cranked mechanism of a rifle-caliber Gatling gun with an electric motora relatively new invention at the time.
Even after Gatling slowed down the mechanism, the new electric-powered Gatling gun had a theoretical rate of fire of 3, rounds per minute, roughly three times the rate of a typical modern, single-barreled machine gun. Gatling's electric-powered design received U. Patenton July 25, Of those, the best-known today is perhaps the Fokker-Leimbergeran externally powered barrel rotary gun using the 7.
American forces in the Vietnam War, which used helicopters as one of the primary means of transporting soldiers and equipment through the dense jungle, found that the thin-skinned helicopters were very vulnerable to small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenade RPG attacks when they slowed down to land.
Although helicopters had mounted single-barrel machine guns, using them to repel attackers hidden in the dense jungle foliage often led to barrels overheating or cartridge jams. Air Force rotary-wing crewman fires a minigun during the Vietnam War.
The resulting weapon, designated M and known popularly as the Minigun, could fire up to 6, rounds per minute without overheating. The gun has a variable i. Several larger aircraft were outfitted with miniguns specifically for close air support: The guns kept failing to shoot continuously, revealing that they were actually worn-out weapons.
The company decided to fix the problems encountered, rather than simply putting the guns into storage. Fixing failure problems ended up improving the minigun's overall design. A delinker, used to separate cartridges from ammunition belts and feed them into the gun housing, and other parts were tested on Campbell's ranges.
The th SOAR liked the delinker's performance and began ordering them by This prompted Dillon to improve other design aspects including the bolt, housing and barrel. Between andDillon Aero was producing 25—30 products a year. Init was working on a new bolt design that increased performance and service life.
By virtually every component of the minigun had been improved, so Dillon began producing complete weapons with improved components. The guns were purchased quickly by the th SOAR as its standardized weapon system. The gun then went through the Army's formal procurement system approval process and in the Dillon Aero minigun was certified and designated MD.
The gun housing had around lifespan before it wore out, which was higher than a conventional machine gun's 40,round lifespan but was a reduced time for a rotary gun.
A hybrid of the two weapons resulted in the MD-H, which had a steel housing and titanium rotor.
Initially, mounts were made only for aviation systems. Then from tothe Navy began mounting Dillon miniguns on specialized small boats. In Iraq, US Army Special Forces units on the ground were frequently engaged by opposition forces, so they mounted MD miniguns on their vehicles for additional firepower.
After several engagements the attackers seemed to avoid vehicles with miniguns. Later the Special Forces units began concealing their weapons so opposition troops would not know they were facing the weapon; regular Army units did the opposite, creating minigun mock-ups out of painted PVC pipes tied together to resemble barrels to trick enemies into not attacking.
The optimum rate of fire was determined by Garwood to be around 3, rounds per minute rpm. The MG is being produced with this firing rate as well as 4, rpm and the previous standard 3, rpm rate.
The electric drive rotates the weapon within its housing, with a rotating firing pin assembly and rotary chamber. Thus, as one barrel fires, two others are in different stages of shell extraction and another three are being loaded.
The minigun is composed of multiple closed-bolt rifle barrels arranged in a circular housing. The barrels are rotated by an external power source, usually electric, pneumaticor hydraulic. Other rotating-barrel cannons are powered by the gas pressure or recoil energy of fired cartridges.Boeing Company BOH LLC Emerson Charitable Trust Emerson Electric Company Equitone Exelis Inc.
