It is unclear at this point whether the Nov. 5 attack was the work of pirates or terrorists..........


Is there much of a difference?

The gatling gun is awsome!! Remember, those guns fire one tracer round for every five bullets. What looks like a stream of tracers is really five times that amount in bullets.

When the AC-130 gunship fires their guns they can put one bullet in every square foot of a football field. There is no escape.

The liner used a new sound weapon which wasn't mentioned in the article.

And when the guns are fired the ship moves at least 10-20 yards starboard. Some serious recoil.

Very interesting...

"As a method for safely addressing the difficult missions of waterside force protection against small boats, crowd control, area denial of personnel, clearing buildings and visit board search and seizure operations, LRAD puts distance between a potential threat and our troops to save lives on both sides of the device."
