The Glagolev-Shipunov-Gryazev GShG-7.62 (Russian: -?- -7,62) is four-barreled rotary machine gun designed in the Soviet Union, similar to firearms such as the M134 Minigun. It is a gas operated, self-powered weapon, which is in contrast with most other rotary guns (that are usually externally powered). It was developed in 1968-1970 for the Mi-24 helicopter together with YakB 12.7mm machine gun,[1] and is currently used in GUV-8700 gun pods, and flexible mounts on Kamov Ka-29.[2][3]
