I really don't think miniguns are being used any longer. It has been a while since I researched the recent configuration, but last I heard they had gone to 25mm GAU-12 "Gatling" in one of the front weapon stations with a version of the M102 105mm howitzer in the rear. I don't believe the Vulcan is in use on the latest model Spectres these days either, but at least for a while the 40mm Bofors L60 Cannon was still there. It may still be in use, but I am not positive.

I wasn't there, but you probably saw the 25's.
