Whats the biggest gun that you ever used?? - Page 11

May 8th, 2006  
I fired expert on a crew served weapon at White Sands. I was the aquisition radar operator when we downed a drone with a Nike Hercules HE. I didn't push the "burst" button but I sat next to the BCO who did. Can I use this as an example?

Could he have pushed the button without you? If the answer is no then I would say you share equally in the thrill since it is a crew served weapon but I think Charge is the final arbiter on this.

Charge 7
It's crew served, the whole crew "fired" it so he fired it also.

I guess it realy depends on what you classify as a "Gun" You make the choice

M82A1 Barret
.50cal BMG
MK 19 40mm Machine Gun
FGM-148 Javlin Anti-Tank Missle
M198 Howitzer

Just the ones I have fired more than once. I don't count the others as it was a one shot deal.

Gun hmmm... i guess thats the Grenade-Pistol or is a Panzerfaust (Bazooka?) considered a "gun", i don't know the specific definition of the english word IN GErmany the Panzerfaust is considered a hand-gun because you can use it with your hands...
Else it is the Zwisola (Zwillings Sockel Lafette), thats two MG 3 on a big socket, mainly to fight fency air things.
Oh i almost forgot to mention shoting the Stinger once... gotta go now, my Regiment and my soldiers are waiting, maybe these days ill get to shoot something bigger

Fired personally, a 105 mm. naval gun, a 40 mm. Bofors, a 75 mm. Bofors, 20 mm. Rheinmetall, and the 84 mm. Carl Gustav, in cronological order.

Had the dirty job of cleaning the 150 mm. naval gun and a 127 mm. Skoda after they were fired...

But there was this occation where we got to load, elevate (by hand crank) and simulate firing og a 38 cm. Krupp naval gun, and then pull the inert charges and the 740 kg. grenade out of the breach again...
Allmost glad we didn't actually got to fire the thing, and clean it afterwards!!!

Doubled up on my previous one. Well, tripled, actually - we did a PACFIRE/IMPASS shoot on the USS Normandy while I was aboard. I made my way to CIC and got to fire about five rounds each from both the 51 and 52 mounts aboard ship.

The attachment is the 52 mount (stern) during the PACFIRE series. This was taken from the flight deck.
