The M61 Vulcan, generally mounted on aircraft, is a 20mm, six-barrel rotary weapon styled after the famed Gatling Gun, which entered service with U.S. forces in 1959 and saw extensive deployment during the Vietnam War. Still in use, the M61 provides highly accurate 20mm fire against air and ground targets at a rate of approximately 100 rounds per second.
