Gatling Gun Calliope

Different length barrels would spread the pattern out...

..and play a cheery tune at the same time.

With 12 barrels, each cut to a length that that would play a different note, you could cheer up the battlefield with a percussive version of "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms" for instance.

The shorter barrels would be less accurate giving a bit of a scatter effect but the main reason would be to have the musical aspect.

A must for any clown motif super villain.

       That was my first idea. I thought this was a little better.   

       Though maybe not much.

       Hmm, when you run out of ammo you can just get it to play Stockhausen until the enemy retreats..

       OT question: Are they called that because they are young/immature gattles?

       Hermann Gatling was an ends-butcher in Dusseldorf who sold his patented "multi-orifice sausage producer" to the military which regularly had a surplus of dead horses and old gunpowder to dispose of.   

       Those old pictures have been retouched a bit too much: those aren't soldiers laying waste to the enemy, they're cooks preparing lunch.
