You won't see me anywhere near this weapon. Unless I'm behind the weapon, certainly not in front of it.

Wow it's dead on for the Halo rifle, guessing thats what they based it on but it seems they practically just stole the design.

You can't say that... for  all you know there could be one pointing right at the back of your head at this very moment.  you wouldn't even know what hit you.

So Halo takes place 500 years in the future, but we managed to create a Sniper Rifle identical to the one in the game in modern times. Do humans randomly not do anything for 500 years or something?

I wonder how many people a single round would go through, should you line like, 100 people up in a straight line.

also:

20mm vs. a 50 cal round.

as long as they account for the bullet drop, I'm sure its fine.  It's designed to be shot from extremely long distances and apparently has enough penetrating power to do hellatious damage to extremely thick, reinforced targets.

If I can find the bullet speeds, I'll post them.


Edit: found it - 'A 20-mm shell moves about 500 m/sec (about 1,600 ft/sec). This translates to 1,800 km/hour (1,100 miles/hour).'

That is slow as hell, and with weight it'd drop like a rock. I also imagine it loses velocity quick.
I just imagine it'd be a tough thing to compensate for with all the ranges and the fact that it is so slow and heavy.

I don't know that much about guns, but it looks like the 14.5mm looks more powerful, from those specs. I could be wrong, though.

I just don't think it's a practical gun.
For one it's not used by any country besides India and South Africa gotta be a reason. lol
It weights over 60 pounds. And .50 caliber does just about the same job, more efficiently and accurately.

But to own one would be so badass. :D

I still don't trust the bullet drop and ranges thing. All the shots in video were taken from up high.
If he was a little more level with the target that bullet might've just struck ground.

"In 20-mm format the rifle fires the 20x83.5 MG151 cartridge fired by the Vektor 20-mm GA1 cannon; the round is manufactured by Pretoria Metal Pressings (PMP). Ammunition natures fired by the NTW-20 include HEI, HEI-T, SAPHEI and Practice. Muzzle velocity is 720 m/sec and the operational range is given as up to 1,500 meters. In 14.5-mm form the cartridge fired is the Russian 14.5x114 in API and API-T form; muzzle velocity is 1,800 m/sec and a maximum effective range up to 2,300 meters.

Changing from one caliber to another takes less than 60 seconds. The barrel, bolt, magazine and sighting equipment can be interchanged between the two calibers as required."


jesus.

oh and another comparison pic



I can'd find any good 14.5mm pics.  but they're a little smaller than the 20mm and thus, faster.

I hear you.  And I assume it's only used by some countries because of how military-industrial politics work.  Not all the best weapons get picked up just because they're "the best".  It's MUCH more political than that.

Anyway, this provides a cannon in sniper format.  I wouldn't want to see one in combat.

did you see the "soft skin" bullet variant in the video?

wouldn't want to have to identify the body that got hit with that.  dayum.
