Iron Man 2 is the 2010 sequel to Iron Man. Robert Downey, Jr. stars as Tony Stark, who discovers that a new enemy threatens the security of the world with a technology similar to the one powering his Iron Man armor. Returning as director for the sequel is Jon Favreau, and the cast includes Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson. This film also is part of "Phase One" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that includes The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger and culiminated in 2012's The Avengers. A third Iron Man film was released in 2013.
The following weapons were used in the film Iron Man 2:
GE M134 Minigun
When he is asked by Lt. Col. Rhodes (Don Cheadle) to weaponize the Mark II Iron Man suit, Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) presents several weapons to pick from. One of the main weapons Hammer displays is the M134 Minigun. Hammer says that the boys in uniform refer to it as "Uncle Gazpacho" or "Puff the Magic Dragon" when showing it to Rhodes. Even though he correctly identifies it as a 7.62mm, "Puff the Magic Dragon" was actually the nickname given to the AC-47 gunships that carried miniguns during the Vietnam War. He is also seen picking it up with ease even though the gun weighs approximately 60 lbs with all components.

General Dynamics GAU-17/A
The "War Machine" has a machine gun resembling a GAU-17/A mounted on its right shoulder, although it appears much smaller than its real life counterpart.

Hammer also shows off the Claridge Hi-Tec semi-automatic pistol.

M26 MASS (Modular Accessory Shotgun System)
The M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System in standalone configuration is also one of the weapons on War Machine, referred to (incorrectly) as an "M24 Shotgun" by Hammer (Sam Rockwell). He also incorrectly calls it a pump-action; it is actually a straight pull bolt-action.

The Milkor MGL Mk 1L is also one of the weapons Hammer presents to Rhodes. While it is not readily evident where it is mounted on War Machine, it is seen mounted on the right arm of Hammer's Army drone.

Hammer Drone Weaponry
Hammer presents his drone samples to the world at the Stark Expo. Four types of drones are displayed, one for each branch of the US Military with its own distinctive weaponry.
Army Drone (M242 Bushmaster chaingun and Milkor MGL)
In addition to the Milkor MGL mounted on to the right arm, the Army version of the Hammer drone is seen armed with a large single barrel cannon, which according to director Jon Favreau's audio commentary, is based off the 25mm M242 Bushmaster chaingun. However during the Extended Cut of the film, the close up of the Army version of Hammer drone labels the cannon as a "Shoulder Mounted .50 Caliber Machine gun" but does not list which model of machine gun. This could be an error or miscommunication between the Director and video editors, or perhaps the gun is a .50 Caliber machine gun modeled after M242 Bushmaster. (Which makes sense because the Real life M242 is considerably larger than what the film uses.) In the film the shoulder mounted cannon behaves more like the m242 bushmaster and even ejects large spent cartridges.

A close up feature during the extended cut of the film confirms that the Army drone has a Milkor MGL equipped in its right arm. Also note the markings on the arm, which state that this drone belongs to the 172nd Infantry Brigade.
In the extended cut of the film, a close up of the Navy drone reveals that the shoulder mounted missile launchers are FIM-92A Stingers. Each shoulder pod carries 6 missiles in addition to 3 missile mounted in a pod on each arm totalling 18 Stinger missiles. With an armament like that, the Navy Drone is a formidable air defence platform.
