Illustration for article titled The Military Power Of The Classic Mercedes

We know that old Mercs are built like tanks. How militaristic are they, really?

Today we saw some absolutely unreal military testing videos, including Operation Upshot-Knothole, the Atomic Cannon. Victorious Secret chimed in with some more info on nuclear rounds.


We are here to freedom the shit out of you.

Iowa class battleships were also capable of firing nuclear rounds as seen in #1. You read that right.

They called it the W23 round for use in the 16" guns. They had a yield of 15-20 kilotons.

That's when m4ximusprim3 let us know the truth. The truth about Mercedes.

As opposed to lesser known W123 round, which just never, ever stopped going.

We're not surprised.
