What happened to the Real Life examples? Seriously, "Natter Magnet?" So if listing a Gatling Gun counts under Natter Magnet, should we then go and massacre all Real Life examples (for example: Macross Missile Massacre lists *gasp* real life weapons, Stupid Jetpack Hitler looks like even more Natter with its description of actual Nazi wunderwaffen projects, and such.) Where exactly is the limit on Natter Magnet?

Maybe because there are too many real life example.(guns,guns everywhere). I wonder why there is a "No real life examples in this article, please" yet people add example in the other folder tab.

"Fables came up with a fine mix of modern-day weaponry and Fable tactics: Take one flying ship (powered by flying carpets), load with all the guns that can fit and set up a chain of ammo depots around the world that can be accessed instantly by teleportation, and rain a never-ending solid wall of hot lead on the enemy armies for hours and hours."

The primary use of this strategy was against an air fleet dragons and assorted other flying nasties, with a 3-D field (essentially a sphere), and they managed to fill the air with so much metal crap that none of them survived. A two-page spread of awesome.

Okay, i really think someone should put back the RL folder. The excuse for removing it was "Natter Magnet" as listed in the page for No real life examples. THIS IS NOT WHY no real life examples were implemented.

Edit: Apparently, there was a edit war between several people and the mod shimaspawn and some other person. Shimaspawn didn't like the page, so he deleted the entire Real life folder.

What did Shima hate about it? Why?

EDIT: Actually, what was the TRS criteria for no real life?

If I recall, Martello was the one who hated it. When he was a mod, of course.

Someone really needs to take this to TRS.

Discussions of real life sections can go to this thread without taking up a TRS slot (especially useful since TRS is currently full). You can petition that it be restored there.

We would have so many real life examples... I have absolutely no problem with that.

how come there no real life examples?

Plenty of modern weapons have a lot of dakka, heck a gattling gun (hand cracked) was the more Dakka of its day!

Why don't we have Gears of War here in the Video Games section? There are a lot of bullets in the series.

Wouldn't Split Second (the film with Rutger Hauer) have a great (and hilarious) example of this after the first time the two of them get a good look at the murderer, and the straight laced guy breaks down before they head to the armoury (with a u - it is in London) looking for a "bigger f***ing gun".

Propose that this article be renamed "More Guns" or "More Firepower", as appropriate for a website written in English and read by English-speaking people.

Take it to Trope Repair Shop in the forum.

And you will need better reasons than "I don't like the name" for a rename. (See Everything You Wanted To Know About Changing Titles)

Well, it's not that I don't like the name, although I certainly don't. It's that this is an English-language website and the title is not in English.

Nearly EVERYONE who'd come across this site knows dakka. Even without knowing 40K itself! (I knbwo for a fact since I'm such an example)

There is nothing wrong with the name.

Now then, I'd suggest we shoot the suggestor of changing the name with enough dakka - but there is a problem, namely NEVER ENUFF DAKKA.

I propose this hypothetical weapon that maybe, just maybe, might be Enuff Dakka. It is a gun that fires a bullet from every point in space at every other point in space at quantum intervals of time. Of course, when we get into the idea of alternate universes...

The problem being the gun would have to be everywhere, so there'd be nothing to fire it at. Useless dakka is not enuff.

2 Evilest_Tim: which catastrophes with Su-24 are meant here? The only thing the search gives is that this bomber's reputation of the most faulty plane in Russian Air Forces was deserved a dozen times over or so.

Wikipedia lists it with a reference at the end of their page of the GSh-6-23:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gryazev-Shipunov_GSh-6-23

"However, after two Su-24 were lost because of premature shell detonation in 1983, plus some different problems with gun usage (system failures, etc.), usage of the GSh-6-23 was stopped by a decision of the Soviet AF Command. For now all aircraft in the Russian AF are flying with fully operational guns, but without ammunition."

This references this:

You could have a universe filled entirely with Dakka... but you could always have another universe filled with Dakka.
