Here’s a short clip of the latest Polish howitzer design, the AHS Krab, firing its 155mm caliber cannon. The smoke shroud that’s created after the shot is impressive but I love seeing how the cannon retracts the kickback from firing its gun into its own arm.
It’s not even the blast from the cannon of the M1128 Stryker that scares me the most (though it is a very impressive blast). It’s the fact that right after the 105mm cannon goes boom, the world around it looks post-apocalyptic. The ground shakes so hard from the gun that it looks like lost souls are being released…
This small tray-back cargo truck was reportedly fitted with the gun turret off a Russian war machine called a Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty (BMP) by the Free Syrian Army. As you can see in this video, it seems to actually work.
Although it sounds like a joke and looks like some kind of modern art gone
wrong right, this Cannon equipped 1959 Vespa scooter supposedly actually served duty defending the Italian province of Messina.
The team at legend-disproving show Mythbusters busted more than myths yesterday while filming a scene at a Northern California bomb-disposal range. Their homemade cannon launched a projectile past the range, through someone's house, and finally into a minivan.
Did the driver of the truck towing this Polish Howitzer hit the brakes too hard, or did the driver of this Polish bus hit the brakes too softly? Either way, there's a joke in here somewhere.
