AAACK!! Violence! Destruction! Why are you showing us this here on the Pac Man forum. I'm calling Sheryll Crow again and tell her there are all sorts of guys on here who use more than one square of toilet paper on their hineys.

I'm also calling the society for the prevention of cruelty to automobiles. Seeing this could really hurt the families that have lost cars to anti-tank weapons and .50 cal MGs.

BTW, were those Carl Gustavs? I also think that dude on the .50 was having way too much fun.

It's a Carl Gustav 84mm AT weapon. I had to cart one of those damn things around as part of my platoon duties in the late 70's.

Effective but bloody heavy!! Its not easy running with one of those while trying to hold your hernia in place! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

What do you reckon the range was?

I've no idea what the vehicle mounted machine gun was; but it made me think of all the guys that insist that machine guns are deadly accurate out to 500 yards or more. Bolted down rigid they might be; but in actual use it seems a bit more of a point and pray weapon.

I believe it was an M2 Browning. I could see the end of the barrel and the feed tray cover in the open position for just a second. And the Browning is VERY accurate. You just have to know how to shoot it on a mounted vehicle. It not so easy to hold it steady while firing. Did you know that they used to use the M2 Browning (As in the machine gun) for sniping? They put a scope (Unertl) on it and fired it on single shot. This was done during Vietnam. That weapon IS accurate.

You mean people like Carlos? Yeah, I can see where he wouldn't know what he was talking about.
