What A CIWS “PAC” FIRE LOOKS LIKE

That’s a Lot of Damage!
You’ve probably heard of the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System. This impeccably designed system consists of a radar-guided 20mm Vulcan cannon that has an effective firing range of almost 1,500 miles.
Its rate of fire, which varies between 3,000 to 4,500 rounds per minute, gives the CIWS an advantage over its counterparts. But if you haven’t seen a CIWS “PAC” fire before, then you’re in luck!
In this video, we get to watch what a PAC FIRE looks like – and what damage it can do.
It’s interesting to imagine what would’ve happened in World War 2 if the Allies somehow had one of these. The rate of fire alone is enough to shut down any WW2 planes, that’s for sure!
Is there a plane that will be fast enough, or well-armored enough to survive even just a few seconds of this? This gun looks like it can single-handedly annihilate a complete medieval army!
