    The stuff from metal storm is the fastest.

    I'll try and find a pic, but the videos are more impressive.

    Then there's that gun that shoots 1000000 RPM, I'm not gonna bother to look for the vid cause its pretty damn boring.

    General Electric M61A1 20mm vulcan cannon is quite fast when mated with its standard hydraulic drive system.

    if i remember correctly, it has a cyclic rate of 5000 rounds per minute.

    metalstorm can probably win with their short-term rate, but for sustained fire, a GE minigun would probably be better.

    this is true for now, but imagine a metalstorm with a larger capacity sweeping over the battlefield. i'm just glad the germans didn't have this 61 years ago...

    Most impressive would be the Mg42, which does about 1200-1300 RPM. pretty crazy for a 60 year old design single barrel MMG.

    Biggest drawback to the MG42 is the need to change out the barrels so often during sustained fire.

    Slowing the rate of fire or altering tactics might have helped.

    That's most likely suppoed to be the GE M134 Minigun, which is .308/7.62 NATO.
    The M61 Vulcan is 20mm.

    And actually, the GE XM214 Microgun chambered for .223/5.56 NATO shoots 10,000 RPM.
    Also, there is a Russian 23mm (can't think of the name right now) that also does 10,000 RPM.

    Those things get fucking hot. A guy at my club brought his F/A MG42 for the patriots day celebration. He put 4000 rounds through it that day, and he had probably 4 extra barrels. I saw him changing the barrel after about 800-900 rounds, he put it on a wooden picnic table, which burst into flames the second he put it down.

    Also, I later realized that the guy that owned the MG42 was my bus driver in 1st-2nd grade.

    yes I know that. You still have to change it out though. The rate of fire is unnescisarily high.
