Over the past decade, the M134 has evolved from being primarily an aerial weapon to one that is universally employed. Its high rate of fire and massive concentration of hitting power allows for rapid engagement and suppression of targets at both short and long distances.

For these reasons, the M134 has rapidly become a standard defensive weapon system for ground forces. The Dillon Minigun is currently in use by numerous land forces in a wide variety of roles. These include:

  • Light and Medium Combatant Vehicles
  • Armored Vehicle Self Protection Systems
  • Common Remote Operated Turrets Systems
  • Fixed and Mobile Critical Infrastructure Protection Systems
  • Area Denial and Point of Entry Denial Systems
  • Convoy Escort Vehicles (CEV)
