The footage of the Huey Cobra AH-1G helicopter gunship also caught my eye: …  http://imageevent.com/okbueno/mopic?p=141&n=1&m=-1&c=10&l=0&w=4&s=0&z=2

My first job out of college in 1967 was with Emerson Electric Electronics & Space Division in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

Emerson was mass producing the second generation of chin gun turrets for the Cobra. … The one in the video that could accommodate two mini guns or two 40mm grenade launchers or one of each. … The gunner could aim it by looking through a moveable gunsight and the turret would follow the gunsight. 

It was great fun to go to the firing range (on business) and see the guns fire.
