Another Day, Another 155mm Calibration Test

As Voltaire said, God is not on the side of the big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best.

    What an AWFUL waste of a lovely mountain. This would be put to MUCH better use on, say…. a STATEHOUSE.

      Well now maybe its a new experimental munition. They could be making a new Rushmore featuring Obama, Feinstein and Bloomberg

        Mount Barfmore.

    Artillerymen don’t think they’re God…they just borrowed His “smite” button.

    That ruined someones day. Mix some variable timed fuses to get the chunky salsa effect.

    does this count as ‘common use’? that would hitch up to my suburban quite nicely.

      Try and find ammo. My local Walmart is extremely back-ordered on 155 shells.

        I here ya, mine only has the 155 rat shot load.

      I keep saying two artillery guns or mortars, some land and a buddy could make for a great game of battleship

        That is badass. I approve.

      2. avatar C says:

        Hell. Yes.

    Was the second round a dud?

    1. avatar APBTFan says:

      Thought the same thing myself. I was counting seconds from the shot to impact and the second one didn’t seem to pan out.

      1. avatar Paul says:

        If you listen really close, you will hear them on the radio saying, “the round did not detonate,” or something to that affect.

        1. avatar JustAJ says:

          And that is why you never conduct movement in the impact zone.

    When can we buy a 155mm Be a good deer rifle LOL!!!

    1. avatar Paul says:

      I was thinking it would be great for dropping a few rounds into a pack of wolves here in Idaho. Kill the whole pack of the damn things with one shot!

    What’s the purpose of this video? Is it to cheer in support of the Obama-led American Empire? We know about how the USG deceives Americans and violates our rights here in the USA. Why should the USG’s ethics be any different abroad?

    1. avatar APBTFan says:

      I think the uncomplicated point of the video is showing what a triple seven can do to the guys who have no problem shooting a gal that had the audacity to break gender mores by getting raped. My opinion? F%ck every one of those animals and if they suck a 155 I don’t really care who it’s from.

    I love artillery! King of battle!

      My thought exactly as a former Marine Artillery Scout Observer.

    I think it is a 9 count from hit on the mountain to the sound traveling back to the camera.. so based on what I remember it takes about 5 seconds for sound to travel a mile… figure my count is fast, so they are shooting out at a mile and a half?

    That is a round that weighs about 95lbs being lobbed almost 8K feet accurately (well as accurate as you have to be with a howitzer anyways).. that is pretty impressive
