    Probably the same as the AK-630 naval gun turrets... mount this on top of a tank turret with some sort of detection system... when an incoming threat is detected turn the gun onto the threat and open fire... I suspect the gatling is chosen to enable the most rounds downrange as quickly as possible in high density bursts.

    Great stuff Archalgenski, please keep it coming. Always liked to see soviet gear in service in it's heyday (especially aircraft), rather that rotting in a boneyard or museum.

    ROSTOCK, GERMANY- FILE PHOTO- JANUARY 26, 1991: A Soviet soldier sits atop a T-80 tank as hundreds of tanks are lining up to be shipped back to the Soviet Union, on January 26, 1991, in Rostock, Germany. The Soviet Union started pulling their forces out of Germany after Germany's re-unification in 1990. The wall that divided the two Germanys was made on August 13, 1961 and lasted 28 years. (Photo by Sven Creutzmann/Mambo photo/Getty Images
    ^^ well not quite T-80, more like T-64.


    Soviet tanks in the early hours of the morning in East Berlin on 28 October 1961. After an incident at the border crossing-point Friedrichstraße "Checkpoint Charlie", tanks of the U.S. and the Soviet army drove up on both sides of the border, but withdraw after one day. From 13 August 1961, the day of the building of the Berlin Wall, to the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989, the Federal Republic of Germany and the GDR were separated by the Iron Curtain between West and East.

    It's a "sisty-fow", rollers and sights.

    A typical NATO propaganda against soviet hardware. It shows how US officials try to deceive their public opinion.
    NATO vs Warsaw Pact -air force-.



    If we stop few minutes on this image, what does it mean ? Even the Mig-25 is useless against any western hardware. What could we say about the poor Mig-21 ? It is noteworthy to say that Mig-21's success reach a such trust, it was built at least 14.000 units. It was the most successful jet supersonic fighter -I will post next about Mig-21 -.
    And if you see excepted the SU-15 Flagon, all these aircraft composed the iraqi Air Force or serbian Air Force. NATO relied and had too much confidence on its radars, and air-air to missiles. Air-air missiles's success and effectiveness that were at least dubious, if not in most of the cases failures.
