M230 Chain Gun – Apache Attack Weapon

Filed in Featured , Military 27 comments

The omnipresent adjudicator hovering over the skies of Iraq can deliver heinous death at any waking instant.  You are taking a stroll down the street, plotting some terrorist attacks in your imagination, and suddenly, without ever feeling a thing, you are reduced to a full sized human splatter pattern.  The reality is, only you know for sure what you were really wanting, thinking, taking, doing…better shape up for the eyes in the sky.30 mmThese dealings in death, the fine line between reality and the ability to play god with the lives of lesser men, are made possible by the ubiquitous ATK M230 Chain Gun mounted on the chin section of the AH-64 Apache Gunship.  With a rate of fire of 625 rounds/minute, firing 30 mm depleted uranium or anti-personnel fragmentation rounds, this weapon enables the FLIR vision films of utter anhillation the likes of which were never seen until recently.  People 100 years ago would label a death like the one below an act of God, fire and brimstone punishing the guilty.  Is that true?

You decide.  After all, the USA is a free country.

Good God. That’s awesome. Not if you’re the dudes on the ground being spread out like strawberry jam on toast, but still, even they, I’m sure, would appreciate the glow of awesomeness emanating from the screen if their heaven, or hell, has ADSL.

You can ever see the shrapnel bouncing off the walls.

Are they sure at that range who the targets are? Do they care?

Of course not, as long as it’s in someone else’s country.

@Chardon – If u are an American and saying this, shame on u, dude. Read news about technology or watch Discovery or smth. Of course, they know who’re the targets at any range :P . Why are they in someone else’s country ? I believe they are fighting for freedom which is not there’s. I’m not an America but i really hate when people whine about war. You want peace ? u have to fight for it. Peace wont come without fighting. :P You want freedom ? u have to fight for it.

The 30x113mm M230 chaingun is an excellent weapon. The 30mm shells it uses doesn’t have the velocity of other types, but it has plenty of HE to ruin your day. Personally I think we should have a weapon firing the same ammunition as a secondary weapon on our next MBT.

The Marines don’t use the Apache series, instead they operate the Super Cobra which has the older three-barreled rotary M197 20mm cannon.

*facepalm

People should learn to do some researchs before they post.

US Army operate the Apache as its attack helicopter, the USMC fields the dated Super Cobra.

“You are taking a stroll down the street, plotting some terrorist attacks in your imagination, and suddenly, without ever feeling a thing, you are reduced to a full sized human splatter pattern.”

Attacks on Coalition forces aren’t terrorist acts. The war is an illegal imperialist enterprise; indigenous armed resistance is thus legitimate. “Terrorist” is a label that is slapped onto anyone who resists the invasion forces, whether or not they are also engaged in attacks on civilians. There are some twelve major insurgent groups in Iraq sharing some converging goals (expelling the occupiers of their land) and some differing goals. Some are engaged in terrorism, some aren’t. All are engaged in attacking foreign occupiers, which is NOT illegal.

“Why are they in someone else’s country? I believe they are fighting for freedom which is not there’s.”

A demonstrable falsehood. The war was never about bringing freedom to anyone, and you know it.

“I’m not an America but i really hate when people whine about war.”

Right, except of course when official enemies are doing it. Then it becomes imperative to “whine” (as people like you can be counted on to do). When your side commits it, though, we are all supposed to line up behind the Dear Leader (as befits a free country, after all) and act like commissars, extolling the party line that assumes the whole enterprise is being done with pure intentions. It’s exceedingly difficult for the trained commissar to appreciate any of this, though it’s perfectly within the grasp of anyone who hasn’t completely lost their senses.

“You want peace ? u have to fight for it. Peace wont come without fighting.”

I must have missed the part where Iraq invaded the United States.

Everyone on here wanting to shoot that gun in the Marines is retarded, the only force that uses that gun is the Army and its the AH-64 (Apache Helicopter) that has that gun equipped to. Grow up, do your research and mature a little bit before you post something online for everyone to see.. Thanks

This is sad… Not one soul apart from the author to take pity on the poor souls who were tortured and shit upon in the previous regime, and tortured and killed in the present.

Tis’ like the days of old, when the gladiators fought to the death, everyone cheering on the bloodshed and death.

No matter the weapon, no matter the time, the most deadly thing to man is man itself. Only we can come up with the ways of killing each other that we do. The day when something else bigger comes along, we will attempt to make bigger weapons still to destroy them.

God bless us all, for we carve our paths of blood and destruction right unto his doorstep, for this is mankind.

#11 Meeh said “Great stuff. Muslims make Nazis and Communists look like Barney the Dinosaur by comparison.” All muslims including Kareem Abdul Jabar, Amad Rashad, and millions of other freedom loving American Muslims including those serving in our armed forces?

Alas boys, I’m afraid you all need to grow up a bit. This adoration of the tools of war is more than a bit misplaced. True patriots are willing to fight and die for their country however reluctantly in knowing the enormous costs in death and destruction war inevitably brings.

We may hate war but the tools used to conduct wars will be forever glorified. The Apache gunship is a damned impressive machine both for how it looks and what it can do. Let’s not forget though that its sole purpose is to destroy.

To see in this video the Apache instead vaporize a tree our a rusted out car or something inanimate would most likely leave the above commentators with little or nothing to say. Which would probably be a good thing.
