Is it going to be portable?

Since it's in large weapon category, switching to another weapon will drop this. So you can't carry it all the time. (I'm the Captain Obvious)

You can move it around as long as you don't switch to another weapon.

Fun fact, he was probably wrong: En.wikipedia.org

7.62 was overkill and too difficult for a human to reasonably manage.

Um, no.

7.62 is a caliber bullet that is use in weapons such as the- Автомат Калашникова -47, "Or also known as the Avtomat Kalashnikova, or the AK-47 -for short, which is chambered in 7.62x39mm," The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle "Heavy" (SCAR-H), "which is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO," the M4 Carbine, "chambered in 7.62x35;" and the FA-MAS Type 62 Battle Rifle, "chambered in 7.62x51mm."

The 7.62 round is not at overkill, not was it too difficult for a Human to manage. Also, you are wrong, Dune_Jumper is actually right. You are thinking of the wrong model, that's not a XM214. That's a M134 which is chambered in 7.62x51 NATO.

Dune_Jumper was right, you should have looked into the facts more before you posted. And maybe you should have looked up 7.62 before you posted.

Let me put it this way. The M134 chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO (which may be what the Underhell team intended to represent) is not simultaneously human portable and human operable. Its weight and volume of fire are simply too great for effective non-mounted use. The XM214 did have a man portable version, but it proved too cumbersome for any practical, non-mounted application as well.

1st off, you can't rely 100% on Wikipedia for complete information, all the articles on Wikipedia are made by random people, it is a 99.0% of a possibility that either the article is false, or the article is missing "a lot" of information. One of the examples of Wikipedia not having complete true facts is the article of the M137.

There is in fact a portable version of the M137, it is chain fed via a ammo pack that can be equipped onto the user's back. So second off, if there isn't a portable M137, that how in the world to you explain this soldier carrying a M137 Vulcan Google.com

Also, tell those Vietnam Veterans that they are liars, and that they never did carry a M134 Vulcan into those disease filled Jungles, and that they don't know what they are talking about, even though they where there, carrying the F***ing weapon! And you weren't! So you know what they carried even though you where never there.

Also, what do you even mean that 7.62mm rounds are to much for Humans to handle? You still haven't answered that.

Also, it is possible for it to be handled effectively while un-mounted, do you think I really thought that we can carry one of those with only our two hands? *Pfft* We used a shoulder strap to help us carry it of course!

What's a M137? Last I checked, we were talking about the M134 minigun.

You're worried about wikipedia's sources, yet you didn't bother to check the image you posted? It's an airsoft minigun from here:
Youtube.com
A video of it actually working:

I've heard of man portable .22 miniguns, but I've never seen video of anybody actually firing one unmounted. It wouldn't surprise me if somebody has made a paintball minigun.

However, we're talking about the M134. You know, the ones that shoot 7.62x51mm rounds. It's designed for mounted use. The gun itself is quite heavy, but a "man portable" version means you also have to carry the ammumition, feed system, and power supply. Can THAT be done? Maybe. Can you control the recoil? Hell no.

Let's be conservative: Dillon Aero M134D-T
Dillonaero.com
Dillonaero.com
41 lbs for the gun
125 lbs for a 1500 round magazine (30 seconds of ammo)
3 lbs for a 3.5 feet of feed chute
42 lbs for a 24 volt battery (We'll assume just one)
= 211 lbs (95 kg)

Now the real killer: look at the average and peak recoil forces. The minigun would be ripped out of your hands if you tried firing it from the hip as seen in movies. Not to mention the torque of spinning the barrel. You might, maybe, be able to set it on some sandbags, put your shoulder into it, and successfully fire a burst without a proper mount.

Now it's your turn. Prove me wrong. Where are YOUR sources?

Your forgetting that your refering to the 7.62 used in battlerifles.
Guns meant to be used with both hands, and only having a clip (ussualy) of 30 rounds.

A minigun firing the same round, becomes so much heavier making it ... well unless your the governator your not gonna carry that thing and shoot it effectively.
A mounted version however would have 7.62 ... but portable likely a 5.56 none the less with the volume of fire it puts out the 5.56 can tear someone in half.

I think it should have one of those carrying straps, like where you can hold the mini-gun, but have the strap over your shoulder allowing you to have a better grip on it, and carry it more easier. The strap could also show up in the view model, like you see one part of the strap connected to the grip, then you see the strap end at the left side of the view model. Like the strap is over Jake's shoulder. Maybe you could add jiggle bones to the strap on the view model also.

I hope we can poop now, since we're eating all that food. Give us emotions to so when we eat all that junk food it can change our attitude and we can be an ******* to the other characters.
