The XM214 was at first developed for aeronautical use. Later General Electric developed it in a portable weapon system, known as the GE Six-Pak. The complete Six-Pak system weighed 38.5 kg with 1,000 cartridges, comparable in weight to some heavy machine guns. The basic weapon in the Six-Pak weighed 12.2 kg. The system could be transported by a team of two soldiers and mounted on an M122 tripod or in a vehicle. Have you ever seen a handheld minigun like this? What do you think of this beast ?
