Top 10 Most Powerful Guns In The World
Like all other technologies, firearm technology has improved greatly in the last century. It took multiple centuries to go from a single-shot musket with limited range to a repeating rifle accurate out to a quarter of a mile, but it has taken only a century to go from that repeating rifle to fully automatic weapons accurate out to as far as two miles. These advances in technology have created a new generation of incredibly potent armaments whose deadliness is only limited by the user. Here are the top 10 most powerful guns in the world.
Place of origin: Israel
A gun you can't see is especially dangerous, and if that gun can fire off rounds at the rate of 20 per second, watch out. The Uzi submachine gun and its variants package rapid fire deadliness in a tiny package – the Micro-Uzi is only 28 centimeters in length. It is used world-wide, with over 90 countries adopting it for military or law enforcement use. It is popular on the other side as well, with criminals and terrorists choosing it for concealment and plentiful ammunition.
Place of origin: Belgium
A gun that goes by a variety of names, including the M249 SAW, the Minimi is a belt-fed light machine gun that can fire up to 1,000 rounds per minute. Unlike the other machine guns on the list, this can be carried and fired by one man, on the move or from a stationary position. This ability to maneuver makes it a go-to gun for armies around the world – almost 50 have adopted it for use, while a number of other countries have produced unlicensed models for use.
