The Maxson M45 was initially intended as an anti-aircraft gun.
With the nickname “meatchopper” you know this thing was a powerful weapon, which was used against infantry. Four .50 caliber machine guns and holding 800 rounds of ammunition, this motorized turret is indeed bad ass. This one has been beautifully restored by IJM Restorations and now we get to see how it operates as it would in original condition. Very cool that a small gas engine actually helps it’s operation. Check this monster out.
