Captain Darnath Lysander, Warhammer 40,000

If there is any one weapon that defines the the Imperium, it is the bolter. No other weapon combines high technology levels with such deliberate brutality, and no race would consider making it but mankind.

The GAU-8 Avenger fires up to sixty one-pound bullets a second. It produces almost five tons of recoil force, which is crazy considering that it's mounted in a type of plane (the A-10 "Warthog") whose two engines produce only four tons of thrust each.
