us navy heavy machine gun pics

The MK-38 is a 25-mm (one inch diameter) heavy machine gun, effective to 2,700 yards (2,457 meters).
These autocannon weapons are referred to as “machine guns” by the Navy, and they may have been the “machine guns” used by the Ticonderoga Class cruiser USS Cape St. George [CG 71] and/or the Arleigh Burke Class destroyer USS Gonzalez [DDG 66] when they engaged and sank a 40 foot pirate boat off the coast of Somalia.
