General information
The Dillon M134D is an electrically powered, six barreled, Gatling gun capable of fixed rates of either 3,000 or 4,000 shots per minute. It can be powered by AC or DC power sources. The weapon is chambered in 7.62 mm NATO with magazine available in 1500, 3000 or 4400 rounds capacities. The M134D is a modular system, allowing easy adaptation to any platform. This flexibility allows it to perform equally well in the fixed-forward fire or crew serve mode. With an average of 30,000 rounds between stoppages, the Dillon M134D is one of then most reliable weapons in the World.
Technical data
The standard Aero fires 3,000 shorts per minute. That equals 50 shots per second. No other 7.62 mm weapon comes close to this rate of fire. Fast shooting is important to suppress multiple targets in compressed periods of time. More importantly, fast guns as M134 D is more accurate than slower firing weapons. There are two reasons for this and both are a result of the high cyclic rate. First, Gatling guns experience virtually no recoil. The M134D fires 50 shots per second, meaning there is 1/50th of a second between each shot. Because the time between shots is so short the M134D, on a properly engineered mount, simply moves aft with the first shot with no tendency to pitch up or yaw. This makes the weapons far more stable and easier to aim. Secondly, in the time it takes to fire one round from an M-240, four rounds are fired from the Gatling gun - this makes for very dense shot grouping. This also means that with four times the number of impacts in the target area, there is a four-fold reduction in the amount of times it takes for a gunner to see his hits and adjust his aim.
On the land the M134D is currently deployed worldwide for convoy escort, border patrol, and VIP protection.
