Artillery video
« on: May 12, 2013, 09:16:36 pm »
Drydock and other Artillery fans out there, ran across this video shooting cannister loads in a Napoleon cannon. They were doing a research project, had lots of shooting, some with "pattern board" and others they apparently soot over a field and track where all the balls impact. Pretty impressive, shooting in a plowed field and see how the shot "spreads"

Edit: OOPS, maybe I should put the link in!

It would be very demoralizing to have to march into the teeth of a dozen of those guns firing canister and being run by experienced crews.
People like me are the reason people like you have the right to bitch about people like me.

I don't think "demoralizing" would even begin to describe it!

"Demateralize" might be a more accurate word...Those fellows had guts!
