Insanely FAST!

You’ve seen rotary cannons that can reach 6,000 rpm like the M61 Vulcan. But have you ever seen a rotary cannon that can fire 10,000 rounds per minute?

The AK-630M, a Russian close-in weapon system from the 1970s, is a fully automatic naval rotary cannon that can fire between 5,000 and 10,000 rpm. The “630” designation comes from its 6-barrel and 30mm caliber configuration.

It is mounted in a turret and is directed by the MR-123 radar, employed against ships, coastal targets, and floating mines. To achieve 10,000 rpm, this cannon stacks the two turrets on top of each other.
