Imply M134 Minigun to the general Minigun tag

Posted under Tags

BUR #15633 has been rejected.

create implication m134_minigun -> minigun
remove implication m134_minigun -> gatling_gun

Well, it's a bit confusing. But the tag for the M134 Minigun and the general minigun tag were frequently mistagged. Not helping by the fact that both tag's previous wiki description specifically describe the M134.

It seems that the minigun tag is currently used for any model of portable gatling gun, not just the M134. And since the M134 tag is currently used for the specific model of minigun that gave the name of this kind of weapon, I think the current tag of M134 should be implied to the minigun tag to clarify that it was indeed a specific model of minigun.

Also, I would like to unimply the M134 tag from the Gatling gun tag, since the tag for generic minigun were already implied to the gatling gun tag, thus making it reduandant should the M134 be implied with minigun tag.

I'd support this. Miniguns have 6 barrels while Gatling guns have 4. The designs are different. but how about adding the following implications like these too?
imply minigun -> multiple_barrel_gun
imply gatling_gun -> multiple_barrel_gun
imply minigun -> machine_gun
imply gatling_gun -> machine_gun

Gatling guns doesn't neccessary always have six barrels, basically any machine guns that use rotary barrel system is a gatling gun.

Anyways, I agreed on adding machine gun implication on the main gatling gun tag. But I don't think adding one to minigun is neccessary given that the tag has already been implied on the gatling gun tag already.
