MHAT-50 (Standard Variant)EditThe Mountable Heavy Assault Turret 50. Caliber, or MHAT-50 for short, is turret that can be mounted on vehicles such as HUMVEEs and Little Bird Helicopters as the MHATA1. The original MHAT-50, however can also be carried by a soldier, although it is impossible to shoot while carrying it due to the lack of a stock and handguard. This requires it to be placed on the ground before use. It has three barrels, which don't spin like a mini-gun; instead, to maintain the fire rate of a mini-gun but without the overheating effects, it fires the first bullet through the first barrel, the second barrel fires the second bullet, and so on. This drastically reduces the probability of the weapon overheating. It is belt fed from a large magazine below the main reciever of the weapon, it holds 150 x .50 Caliber rounds. To fire more than 150 bullets, a second soldier can manually feed the weapon the ammunition. The trigger configuration is in the rear reciever of the weapon. It is a standard configuration with a lever safety and trigger guard. A laser module is placed of the barrels which can help increase accuracy without the use of sights. Sights can be equipped to the Picatinny rail mounts although because of the recoil and smoke produced, it is recommended to only use the laser module.
