Recoil is an
inseparable part of shooting. It instantly affects how you engage the
target. And the effects are amplified for machine guns. Each machine gun
round changes the lay of fire. Gunners must constantly adjust to the
recoil and re-engage the target. Fact is, training with recoil is
forces work on the barrel of a machine gun poking out from a helicopter
door or window. That 3 or 4 foot long gun barrel is a major windbreak.
The airstream on the barrels push the weapon. And, the faster the
helicopter flies and the more barrel exposed to the airstream, the more
torque on the weapon.
