The Vulcan was a six-barrel, short-range, 20mm-air defense weapon system. It saw service with the Spams 82nd Airborne from 1970-1994. It was deployed vastly during the Gulf War war and was also used to engage ground targets such as APC's and soft-skinned buildings.

Althought withdrawn from US Military service, it is still in use along South Korea's border with its slightly madder relation.
