3000 rounds a minute………. An essay by William Marshall(subtitled check out that stache)

In a real battle, a real battle, the key was keeping it fed. The capacity was half the size of it’s bigger self propelled cousin, the tank version. The Towed Vulcan Air Defense system fired 3000 rounds a minute. Look at this little picture here. Count the bullets. Look at the faces of the loaders. Yep, feeding it was hard. 3000 rounds a minute.
