The HGG-1 (Heavy Gatling Gun), nicknamed the "Mini Gun" (this is an obvious
oxymoron as the HGG-1 is the largest personal weapon manufactured by Mestic
Munitions), is perhaps one of the most devastating personal weapons to date.
A meter and a half in length and weighing much more than most other weapons,
the HGG-1 has six barrels that rotate at a high velocity when the weapon is
in operation. It is supported by a handle on the top with the trigger and a
thumb operated mode toggle switch with a second handle that is usually
placed near the middle section of the weapon on its left side (this can be
moved to the right side for left handed users) and a thickly padded shoulder
strap. The ammunition is fed in on a belt through the right rear end of the
weapon, usually from a back pack ammunition container worn by the user.
The HGG-1 is the perfect heavy weapon to supplement any squad and can
decimate most landspeeders, enemy troops, and even buildings in some cases.
The Mini Gun can be mounted onto a specialized tripod (much like an E-Web)
for security or prolonged fire from a stationary position and be continually
fed ammunition as long as the operator (this is assuming that a second
person come to help out the gunner) keeps respinning the ammo belts.
