CLASSIFIED, 35K+?

Would Ed's warranty apply to bullet holes?

I think this was publicized by the Navy because it is the last warning - they will probably shoot first and ask questions later next time

Not nearly as fast as the uranium depleted rounds that should have shreaded those idiots trying to commit suicide.

I saw a 20mm vulcan firing once in a video. It was pretty impressive.

I think and hope you're right! The coverage(just watched the news)shows how much "restraint" was involved...............THIS TIME!

Glad they turned away when they did. That would have been a much stickier situation. Also, would've been like shooting fish in a barrel for the Navy guys.

I made numerous deployments aboard the carrier USS John F. Kennedy and since it is now decommissioned I can tell you that we did 65 mph at one time coming across the Med enroute to Israel and the pedal was not yet to the metal. The FFs can usually keep up but don't think they are quite as fast.

In case one of these is powered up and engages them. The pieces of bright orange help you keep a visual on the chum slick!
