I've seen a clip on the 'Net, showing the G11 on fire range..
Amazing ROF at full auto, i think it's 2000+rpm when 3-round burst selected..
The theory here is that at extremely high ROF, the last round of the burst will leave the barrel along the axis of aim BEFORE the firer can flinch in anticipation of recoil.. (IIRC Royal Ordnance bought over Heckler&Koch so the project was canned, rt?)
I've seen a picture of the an MG that's supposed to be big-bro of the G11..
It packs 300(!!) caseless rounds in the butt, reload ala break-open shotgun style..
I read from Jane's that the 5.7mm ball-round was not originally designed as a armour piercing, but is incidental due to the shape of the projectile.. The high-velocity round looks like a sabotted AP round..
Anyone knows about the THV (tres-haute-something-something i think) round? I rem reading somewhere that it's wound profile is 'large-entry-small-exit' due to it's design: THV imparts most of it's KE upon impact, damaging the tissue around the wound site, leaving little energy on exit.. Seems that it's banned by internationl convention etc..
Somewhere out there is also a battery-control Personal Defence Weapon (aka auto-pistol) the Bushman; the battery in the grip is to allow the user to vary ROF in the field..
