This would be put to MUCH better use on, say…. a STATEHOUSE. Reply Well now maybe its a new experimental munition. They could be making a new Rushmore featuring Obama, Feinstein and Bloomberg Reply Mount Barfmore. Reply Artillerymen don’t think they’re God…they just borrowed His “smite” button. Reply That ruined someones day. Mix some variable timed fuses to get the chunky salsa effect. Reply does this count as ‘common use’? that would hitch up to my suburban quite nicely. Reply Try and find ammo. My local Walmart is extremely back-ordered on 155 shells. Reply I here ya, mine only has the 155 rat shot load. Reply I keep saying two artillery guns or mortars, some land and a buddy could make for a great game of battleship Reply That is badass. I approve. Reply Hell. Yes. Reply Was the second round a dud? Reply Thought the same thing myself. I was counting seconds from the shot to impact and the second one didn’t seem to pan out. Reply If you listen really close, you will hear them on the radio saying, “the round did not detonate,” or something to that affect. Reply And that is why you never conduct movement in the impact zone. When can we buy a 155mm Be a good deer rifle LOL!!! Reply 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! Reply 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? Reply 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. Reply God fights on the side with the best artillery. Napoleon Bonaparte Reply “God is an American.” -David Bowie Reply I love artillery! King of battle! Reply My thought exactly as a former Marine Artillery Scout Observer. Reply 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 Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
