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

    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.

      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?

      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 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
