Bring the HEAT
XBradTC's thoughts… deep thoughts.
Roamy here, with hopefully not a repeat.
Updated: found this one, too.
Love those sort of pictures.
The IS assigned to my ship took some really good ones when we were doing sea trials. Can’t remember what type of camera he was using – it was a DSLR that he was issued for his work – but he got some GREAT pictures from the bridge wing of that 5″/54 with the shell visible. In one of them, the shell was actually still partly inside the barrel – looked like there was just a point on the barrel, like a pencil.
The Crusader in the bottom pic is now a museum piece at Fort Sill. The picture is awesome!
Sir John of Argghhh calls it “Gunner Zen.”
