M15 Wolf by Ergrassa M15 Wolf by Ergrassa

Attention! M15 is usually feeded by cardridge belt or backpack or vehicle-mouted pack. Only idiots use M15 without powered exoskeleton suit.


Military Industries Mirk M15 Wolf gatling gun.

weight: 16.9 kg unloaded, 21 kg with two cassetes
barrel length: 612mm
caliber: 7.92
cartridge: 7.92×60 ammunition in 64-rds cassete or cartridge belt.
muzzle velocity: 870 m/s
cost: 3'430 geo
manufacturer: Military Industries

A typical like-in-a-movie gatling gun, M15 Wolf-2 is a primary heavygunner's weapon in Liberty Colonial Marines Corps. Also, you can see M15 on most of helicopters, gunships and army jeeps. Wolf-2 is easy-to operate, fail-safe and cheap. Those are the reasons why M15 is the most popular rotary machinegun in the Federal Space.

Been following your work for some time Egrassa.
The only gripes I got about this gun are functional and they're minor.

I like this gun because its a Minigun that actually feeds ammunition from Magazines. You really don't find that combination out there much, unless its some cheezy "chaingun" that doesn't have a fast enough firing rate to need multiple barrels for it.

It also uses Double Magazines, another concept that is hardly ever breached out there in designs, and is completely workable in real life.

Which gets to the other part, if its a Minigun, that doesn't have a fast firing rate, then id imagine it should probably only have 3 barrels.

Id also say a Minigun would be great for an Entry Weapon (as in, break down the door urban environment) if it was short barreled and fired some small controllable caliber like 5.7x28mm or 4.6x30mm. That still preserves penetration, and with a minigun multiple shots makes up for less damage.

Slow firing rate for a minigun would be about 1500-1800 rounds per minute, about as fast as it normally is in the FPS games, which is like having 3 assault rifles aimed at you. If aimed in your direction, it will not fail to hit you. Just point the gun in the room and sweep, itll hit everyone, move to the next room.

And with small ammunition like that you could Definitely get enough rounds into a magazine for it - like you stated 60-80 some odd bullets. It'll expend its ammunition fast, but in a setting like that it doesn't need much, and you have enough time to reload.
What do you think?

Looks cool but makes no sense in having such a weapon. Its too heavy for the job it does, it can be replaced by any other LMG. You will point out to unholy rate of fire, it is pointless without huge ammo supply. The whole reason rotary auto-canons were invented was the overheating problem. The rates of fire over 1k rpm would overheat single barrel too fast, so the rotary auto-cannon was invented. Also, any and all rotary auto-canons are expensive, require good power supply and are a bitch for maintenance. So what you envisioned here is simply a useless weapon to have and anyone with 2 brain cells would pick any LMG instead of this weapon. If you want this thing to have any reason to exist (other than "it looks cool") you might consider reducing caliber to 5.56 (standard for today's small rotary machine guns) and increase the ammo to at least 600 per belt or a better option have a belt fed system connected to backpack with about 2000-2500 rounds total... now that would be useful on a battlefield...

Идея для пехотного оружия не очень. Коробчатый магазин содержит.. ну максимум 80 патронов, при скорострельности 4000-6000 выс\мин. получится-один раз нажал - меняй магазин, по этой причине многоствольное оружие ставят только на технику.

ну, тут как бы для примера коробчатый магазин показан. Чтобы было понятно, что его и из стандартных магазинов к ручным пулеметам можно питать. Идея, к сожалению, неудачная получилась, надо было ленту сразу моделить =)

Looks great but the minigun nowadays shots 6000 rounds per minute. These 128 rounds woulds be gone in lesse than a second. You definetly need bigger cassetes and btw: Why too cassetes? This gun is too heavy to pull a cassete out and push another one inside WITH ONE HAND!

I'd have to say, I'd rather use this than the modified version (with some sort of belt feed connected to a backpack with a lot more ammo in it, of course), because it looks more comfortable, easier to hold, and the way the cassette loader is oriented means that I could hold it right-handed without thousands of screaming-hot shells flying at my body.
Plus, it looks cooler.
