F-35 Cannon

Sure, the F-35 project might have cost $3.5-billion, and is 8-years late, but this stealth fighter recently tested its cannons, and all systems are go. It fired approximately 3 airborne gunfire bursts from its internal Gun Airborne Unit (GAU)-22/A 25mm Gatling gun system, while 3 bursts of one 30 rounds and two 60 rounds each were fired from the aircraft's four-barrel, 25-millimeter Gatling gun. "The successful aerial gun test sortie was a culmination of several years' planning, which intensified in the first half of 2015 at the Edwards F-35 Integrated Test Force (ITF) Flight Test Squadron with a team of Air Force, Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney, General Dynamics, and Northrop Grumman personnel," said Mike Glass, Edwards ITF flight test director.

Why bother with 3D-printing, when you'll soon be able to grow your own drones. Researchers at BAE Systems and the University of Glasgow are developing military drones that can be grown from molecular building blocks in a matter of days. The technology will be based on Chemputer tecnology, which is essentially "digitally controlled chemistry," or creating tools that will help direct the assembly of complex objects in a machine with minimal human input after the initial configuration.
