M61 VULCAN Super Machine Gun



M61 Vulcan

A gigantic weapon of war, the M61 Vulcan was initially devised as an anti-aircraft gun. Its rotating six-bolt barrel gives it a much higher rate of fi re and reliability than single-barrel machine guns, which would overheat after persistent use.

An ammo belt was originally used to feed the bullet-hungry fi rearm, but after a jamming problem the belts were replaced by a linkless feed system. The gun is powered both hydraulically and electrically by aircraft and can fi re both incendiary and armour-piercing rounds. The invention of the weapon gave fighter jets an alternative to using missiles at short range

and has one of the highest fi ring rates of any machine gun. The M61 has also been used n the ground as an air defence system in armoured vehicles and its successor, the M134 Minigun, was used in helicopters as a response to RPG fi re from the ground. The M134 has made the weapon class much more effective, as it can be placed on gun emplacements. This scaled-down version of the original made the weapon more readily transportable but with a decreased rate of fire. Despite its inability to be carried and fired by a single infantryman (as is often the myth), the M61 Vulcan has made all types of military aircraft much more resistant to ground fire and more effective at taking out ground units. Its high rate of fire mean successful hits are achievable even at jet speeds.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
