When it said "hardcore doorgunner" I figured it was going to be one of the space shuttle guys.

So let me get this right.

Britain is an island. There is, at least, about 21 miles of water between there and Europe (between Dover and the Cotentin Penninsula). I'm guessing the drug runners come from France?

Or Ireland?

In all seriousness (is that a word?), I still think the BADDEST door-gunner scene ever shot was the one in Apocalypse Now, when the door gunner is firing STRAIGHT DOWN at the VC.

RUN, CHARLIE!

Coast Guard does the same thing with 50s
saw a show on the history channel that covered it. they shoot the engine of the speed boats and wait for it to stop running

The Coast Guard began leasing MH-68 Mako helicopters to outfit a new squadron, HITRON-10, formed to augment the service's capabilities in the continuing fight against narcotics smuggling. The squadron was developed specifically to combat the drug-smugglers' use of what are called "go-fast" boats. These MH-68s carry an armed Coast Guardsman who, if needed, could use his .50 caliber sniper rifle to disable a "go-fast" boat that refused a demand to stop and be boarded. This is not the first time Coast Guard aircraft were armed during peacetime; Loening OL-5s carried .30 caliber Lewis guns during the service's earlier fight to enforce Prohibition.

The Lynx has a .50 M3 as well, you can just see it behind the guy… but you have to admit, the door sniper is über cool!



The Coast Guard Helo's have both, also. The .50 Sniper Rifle is only for if they don't stop after they put some MG fire ahead of them.

They get a warning shot, then they kiss their engine good bye...

Ahhhhhh, if the gun doesn't shoot 4000 rounds a minute, it's not worth putting in the door.

Not content with the .50 cal flex gun, British Lynx helos on anti drug patrols now take along Royal Marine snipers with an AW .338 to take shots at the naughty boat boys.

Uh, the USCG is using a McMillan .50 rifle with an EOTech for stopping "go fast" boats.
