A rotary cannon, aka rotary autocannon and Gatling-type cannon is a rapid-firing weapon that utilizes multiple barrels in a rotating cluster to provide a sustained rate of fire greater than single-barreled machine guns or automatic cannon of equivalent caliber. Rotary cannon are particularly more common with the US and Russia.
List of rotary cannonsEdit
- M61 Vulcan
- Minigun : Technically, the Minigun is more correctly classified as a rotary machine gun than a cannon because it used the smaller 7.62 mm caliber.
