Naval Hotchkiss revolving cannon


I have previously posted about the Hotchkiss Revolving Cannon (here) design along with pics of a nice museum piece.  Yesterday I cam across a nice example of a Naval version on a pedestal mounting at the Royal Australian Navy's Heritage Collection at the Garden Island naval base, in Sydney.

What I call a serious 'Sod off' weapon. Interesting photos, thanks for sharing.

I'll bet you'd just love to give that a go. :-)
