    I've always had a thing for the 25mm cannon on the Bradley and the LAV.

    That photo of the Challengers is awesome. Possibly the most awesome machine at blowing the **** out of things on the planet.

    I've shot most of what the norwegian army has to offer, including Leopard 1a5s, and the thing i still love the most is the 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless. Great fun!

    We should pull one of those babies out of retirement. Yes, I know its 100% impractical-- a DDG could do the same job at a fraction of the price-- but the coolness factor would be off the charts

    I've always wondered... Feeling the explosion being so big at a distance, how does it feel to acutally be on the ship when firing?

    If you've felt one of these do a low-level fly-by, you know what I mean.

    Never was onboard a BB when shooting (one of my life's dissapointments), nevertheless when the 16in/50 shoot the ship is buttoned up, but I'm sure that it's quite a bang anyway.

    Heck, a 5in/54 working is heard throught a DD!!

    Yes, everybody is inside when it's fired, the concussion can throw you overboard.....
