Fire low-yield explosive bullets at that rate, you could desintigrate a wall in seconds, allowing your team storm in quickly.

The applications I can see. They're scary.

my opinion (looking at both sides here)

PROS
-------
when they say they can set it to monitor an area and alert a controller of intruders. in essence, a mine field. that i can see as a step beyond mines. which we all know lay idle for years after until a helpless villager takes a new route home. its a more controlled scenario.

it makes more sense than a bomb for getting rid of walls because of the fact that the accuracy on this would most certainly be a huge step from Rock Propelled Grenades. Which means they could mount it on a vehicle. Let 'er rip, dessimate a wall, and storm the room. This means in an urban landscape they can target the right wall, not have the RPG shoot out an innocent families wall next door by mistake.

CONS
------
Now I dunno about you, but a million bullets minute is a little excessive. We're trying to slow down the production of arms, not speed it up. Where can a 16 tube grenade launcher make sense other than the battle field? Do they really wish for a car full of angry people to pull up. Click a buttom and be able to blow up an entire parking lot all in a driveby?

With an electronic working system does this not mean to fix it on a battlefield you're going to need computers and electronic whiz kids? With a machine with moving parts the efficiency drops but the option of a "quick fix" is still there.

Lastly...a million rounds a minute is just plain retarded. The world does NOT need this. Wait until you have handgun options where you can bust out an entire belt of bullets in to a convenience store in like 3 seconds. It's stupid, its crazy, and its basically got "massacre" written all over it.

my 2 cents.

1,000,000 bullets think about it a big pile, thats a lot of metal and junk ,jeez

i dont think its meant to be able to be bought privately its like the guns that are on ships, when missiles are coming in they shoot up tons of ammo wich destroys the missile, its used for defense, can you see a hummer carrying around 2,000 pounds of bullets?

Just ran some quick calcs. That's like a square block that's 3 meters * 3 meters * 3 meters of bullets. Holy shit.

they said it would be mostly for defense..........like the bullits would be like a speeding wall of flak (sp) against an enemy missle or something.........it makes sense:)

Looks like they're developping some interesting non-military applications using the same technology. The company page can be found at http://www.metalstorm.com

Here's a link to a 14mb vid of the gun firing...click (http://www.metalstorm.com/videos/ms_36barrel_mpg.zip)

I think they should redo the movie Commando with Arnold, except he gets on of those at the end.
