Bring a few of these motherfuckers over to the valley of megiddo at the battle of armagaddeon you heathens Watch F-35 stealth fighter fire 3,000 bullets a minute from its devastating machine gun as US Air Force unveils awesome firepower of its new $98m jet Footage shows F-35 stealth jet unleashing 181 rounds in matter of seconds The four-barrel Gatling gun is embedded in the wing to keep stealth profile Test team hopes to launch first phase of airborne gun testing in the fall Highly-anticipated stealth jet has been plagued by production setbacks A video of America’s F-35A stealth jet unleashing almost 200 rounds in a matter of seconds has been released, as the latest phase in ground testing gets underway. Hailed as the most expensive weapon in history, the controversial stealth jet is undergoing rigorous testing at California’s Edwards Air Force Base. And the intimidating footage of its four-barrel, 25millimeter Gatling gun embedded in the plane’s left wing, shows that the jet can really pack a punch. +3 Sophisticated: Footage from ground testing of the F-35A stealth jet at Edwards Air Force Base in California, shows the awesome firepower of the four-barrel Gatling gun embedded in the left wing +3 'Flying computer': U.S. military leaders have extolled the virtues of the F-35 jets, which are intended to 'combine advanced stealth capabilities with fighter aircraft speed and agility' As the plane must also have a stealth profile, the Gatling gun - which can fire up to 3,000 shots per minute - must remain hidden until it is needed. It is kept hidden in the wing until the trigger is engaged. The test team, which includes members from the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, hopes to complete ground testing this month and launch airborne gun testing in the fall. The jet, designed by Lockheed Martin, will have an operational gun by the end of the program’s system development and demonstration phase in 2017. The first phase of the gun testing began on June 9, and the amount of munitions fired has been gradually increased, until the 181 rounds were fired on August 17. The ground tests were designed using software to replicate being in flight, using a production version of the GAU-22/A gun. The tests, using the target practice PGU-23/U which does not explode on impact, showed the gun’s ability to spin up and down correctly.
