Quote from: Weaver on February 11, 2018, 06:57:39 PMNice one! That looks really good, especially the paint. The cupola gun from the spares box is a couple of Lego Technics parts by the way.The reason real tanks don't have Gatling guns is mainly ammo supply: unlike planes, they have to be able to fight for hours, not minutes, and if you turn the fire-rate down, then there's no advantage over a normal gun that weighs less and doesn't need electrical power to fire.Having said that, the increased use of remote weapon stations could see Gatlings more widely used due to their reliability: if they feed a dud they just spit it out again, and nobody has to climb outside to re-cock the gun. The linkless ammo feeds are also much more amenable to a long feed path from a big magazine deep inside the hull than belts, which have to be within the lifting capacity of the gun mechanism. The rate of fire on an RWS Gatling would probably still be turned right down though, or at least selectable by the gunner.
