Didn't Tippmann have a gatlin system on a promotional 4 wheeler a while back?

I think it was on there splash page.


They sold the Hellhound and all the stuff on it.
It had timing problems fixed now.

Wrong, Sorry they were Tippman F/A feeds.
It was build before the A5's

I think those had to have worked like A5 feeds, b/c otherwise they'd have to jump out every 200 rounds and re-wind the damn things. Not very convenient at 50 rds a second is it? As I remember, 2 of the barrels fired, thus 2 feeds, so it didn't really have a rof as high as people think, w/ 1 barrel firing 50 rds. per second, but 2 that fired 20-25...which isn't so high if you think about it...I mean, relative to what some guns today can claim.

It spins, and when it's actually timed and not a frickin' blender it'll fire about 50bps. Ripped the jersey off the dummy they tested it on.

probably a big air tank, like the ones they use to house HPA on it, or like quite a few 142ci/5000psi tanks or something.
The desire for polyester is just to powerful.

I have an interview with Dennis Tippmann saying that they are cyclone feeds.....the cyclone mind you, didnt come out the same time the A-5 did, it had been a project in the making well before that......

yes, there are two 15 pound tanks in the back to supply the cannon, or gatling gun as most people call it, the rear mounted morter, and two remote line hook ups for the players guns, and also a line for the optional mounted 98 on the passesnger side. i believe the grenade launcher catapault system is some how spring activated, but it is possible that it runs off the tanks as well. with all this coming from those tanks, they must go pretty fast. this was made as a promotional thing, and would never really fare well on any kind of game battlefield. but i will be the first to admit it would be fun as h*ll though.

Neither as theguy said. They might have the stars arranged like the cyclone as opposed to the star feed, but the hellhound feeders are powered by the drill that spins the barrels. Not spring powered like the star feed, and not pneumatic powered like the cyclone.

I can certainly understand how it would be impossible to keep timed. Imagine a .68" diameter hole SPINNING past, while the paintball SPINNING in the star feed tries to fit through the hole without getting bobbited.
