I see pictures of what I think the prototype. All I did was look up "Myriad CIWS" and saw a few photos.

Not the most beautiful thing I've seen by my standards.

Yes, it was not very beautiful, but perhaps effective.

I had archived a couple of magazine pictures from 1989-1991 when the system was trotted around in trade fairs, but nothing you can't find on the internet right now, sorry.

Hah. Sorry if my wording was confusing or anything, but I meant that I don't have anything that you cannot find today on the internet, i.e. I have only pictures that a cursory image search will bring up.
You have probably already seen these ones:

Apologies for not having been a rabid source collector for warship systems in the late 1980s already :lol:

GAH! Mutual interference in flight of projectile streams!

In case anyone wanted to know why the thing was never fielded.

I believe that Myriad fall in end of Cold War when defense budgets cut and therefore none bit, it came just too late. Sea Zenith or Sea Guard appeared earlier, but finally only Turkey took it. Conserningredients photos, I have found 4, including the last one from citizen lambda.

Might be the main reason, though I question Sea Zenith for the same reason. Very plausible. A Phalanx, especially a four barrel type system, kicks up quite a vortex air eddy when it spins.

Because Myriad came after Sea Zenith, it is possible that vibration problem solved. Oerlikon KBD was a seven barrel gatling, it would have large kick also. But a gatling gun is balanced from its design : If you imagine it rotating in slow motion, there are always two opposite barrels in near or exactly opposite positions. If the latter achieved, the gatling is perfectly balanced.

From the pictures I have seen from Myriad, including the Fincantieri DV800 corvette, its turret looks very similar with that of GDM-A cannon.
