Gatling guns as they are now have a rate of fire of about some 600-700? (info from various wikias etc..)

Now apart from a fancy roatating animation that would be a waste of materials since you can get more than double that rof from a single barreled weapon, no need for 6 of them, well apart from more cooling surface after a longer sustained fire.

So i propose you introduce more single barreled weapons such as the german naval Mauser MLG27 (1000-1700 rpm) or maybe a larger 35mm like in the Mantis anti air system (1000rounds per minute)


Now since you alredy have gatlings modeled and ingame I propose you further expand on the gatling guns and add new options such as:

-adjustable rate of fire


-selectable burst lenght

-selectable pause between bursts....etc

The purpose of a gatling gun is to achive a faster rate of fire compared to a single barreled weapon, for example Gau 30 has up to 3900 rpm, M61 vulcan has over 6000 rounds per minute and a 25mm Gau 12 equalizer does some 4200rpm.

I realy think that since this is a futuristic game about engineering it is a litle absurd to think that in the future people would use gatlings for 700 shots per minute when even in the 20th century we had so much faster firing ones.


Cheers.
