The First Aerial Test Of The F-35 Gatling Gun

Lockheed Martin tested the F-35's gatling gun a few weeks ago.

Lockheed Martin tested the F-35's gatling gun a few weeks ago. It's called the GAU-22/A, it can fire 3,300 25mm rounds per minute and it is more precise but not as powerful as the car-sized A-10's GAU-8 Avenger. 

While the GAU-22/A has been successfully tested, the weapon won't be ready for combat till 2019. 

The reason: They are still developing its control software.
