Trust me when I say that you don’t want to be on the wrong end of quadmounted AA guns. It can really throw a serious amount of lead downrange!
Developed for use against low flying airplanes during World War II, twin and quadmounted AA guns served quite effectively in that role all over the world. Usually using either .50 caliber or 20mm machineguns, these AA mounts could also be used against ground targets with fearsome effectiveness.
Check out the video and you’ll see what I mean.
Looking at the business end of that thing is pretty intimidating!
Quadmounted AA guns fell somewhat out of favor with the advent of jet aircraft. However, some have stuck around since then for use against slow moving aircraft, like helicopters.
I’ll bet that thing would really do a number on a drone as well…
