Some one want to explain WTF just happened there?
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 11:15:39 PM EDT
isn't a recoiless rifle supposed to be without recoil? Or did the propellant detonate?
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 11:22:24 PM EDT
Well what ever just happened BigBoy screwed up the description again.


Description:
Probably, the last time this member of the Taliban tries to hold and shoot a recoiless rifle.



I'm fairly certain an American would not be video tapping a member of the Taliban shooting a captured recoiless rifle.

That was great, not so much for the retard holding the giant rifle, but more for me laughing at his misfortune

Recoiless means the rifle does not have a recoiling assembly, not that it doesn't have recoil energy. While the projectile is more rocket propelled, it obviously packs quit a punch.

I'd think that the SF guys there would know this and not let them do such dumb things, but I admit, I would try to shoulder one of those things too.

Yeah, you would think the SF guys would have stopped him before he almost took his head off.

For some reason the opening rif from MTV's Jackass keeps playing in my head as I watch this....

Funny. Looks like Afghan National Army troops. Those have their basic training done by Special Forces, but the "mentors" assigned to them in the field are National Guard officers and NCOs.

I wonder if these pics are from that mission.

This is also a recoiless rifle. It's an 82mm and appears to be the same one the Afghani is firing. Not intended to be shoulder fired.

I've heard the isreali's sabotage M16's ... when the Palistians get them, the first time they fire them the explosive-packed buttstock blows their arm off.

A small mortar that could be carried and fired by one man. They had an odd shaped base plate that was meant to be rested on the ground. Marines that captured them thought the base plate was supposed to be
rested on the thigh. Those that tried often ended up with a broken thigh bone.

Some recoilless rifles were designed to be shoulder-fired, like the 57mm M-18.

ETA- The M-67 (90mm) could also be fired from the shoulder, but I only ever saw it used with a bipod.

+1

Our company in Vietnam had an M-67 with a shoulder/bipod mount. We never had the requirement to fire it in combat and I can't remember anybody dumb enough to fire any training rounds. The arms room officer insisted that he was experienced with one and willing to use it.

I use to shoot a 106 rr we fired the .50 spotter rifle with a tracer then sent the 106 on the way. The weapon was always mounted. It was a great bunkerbuster.

I had something similar happen to me when I was in the army reserve. We were doing a firepower demo to a bunch of noobs when my Sarge pulled out a "flash", not sure of the real name, but it was the 4 barreled anti-armor thing that Arnold used in COMMANDO to take out the bad guys van.

The "flash" was taken out of service because it would sometimes have multiple barrels go off at the same time. This is what happened to me!!! First one went off with first pull of the trigger. Second pull of the trigger was all three of the other tubes!!!!!

The weapon ended up about 15 yards to my right.

It did not feel too great on my cheek.
