what the heck happened here
Thank God this happened in the bbl. and not the breach. Thinking there was an obstruction of some type.. maybe as simple as a round not clearing.. Good the pressure was outside the turret. scary stuff.
Do you think this is what happened to the gun turrit on that ship several years back, but in the muzzel rather than in the breach. I remember it but can't recall the facts.
Question.Do Tanks have rounds like regular small arms, ie, case, primer, powder,projectile, all in all in one case?
Question, Guns on ships?, do they load projectile, then powder charge into a breech? Or do they use caseings? and have one large ass round?
Sorry never been around a Navel Ship.
If so, then would they have different size charges of propellant, or one size and add extra if needed? I understand the elavation.
Hope someone can understand my questions.
As far as tank and ship rounds go, tank rounds are self-contained, like big-ass cartridges. I know the 16 inch naval guns use separate projectiles and bag charges, like ground-based artillery, but I'm not sure about the smaller guns like the 5 inchers.
that is a big bad ass kaboom
so, I hope the occupants were not hurt.
