Very cool and worth watching   :applause:

Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

The Beast was a good film I thought too.

Interesting

At 5:40 he's talking about whether the commander's head should be in or out - and he says western school of thought is that it should be out because what you don't see kills you. They've clearly not played Combat Mission!!  :silly:

IIRC, the IDF was big on having the tank commander keeping his head up- a fine balance between engagement-winning situational awareness and increased TC turnover.

I guess the guy doesn't like to discuss, 'Performance Issues'. Wonder why?  :dunno:

*Sigh*   It can indeed be difficult to find a soul mate who can be proficient with one's main gun...

Yes, Rifled or Smooth-Bore can be such divisive issue. Particularly if one's not aware of what you're getting until hot action begins.  :biggrin:

Admiral Dan Gallery, who captured U505, was known for his quirky sense of humor.
He once posted a notice on a ship that was going to cross the equator.

The Coriolis effect is the known spin of objects away from the equator.  It is theorized that a small stream of fluid will demonstrate this.  It is highly recommended that the crew test tbis.  North of the equator, there will be a clockwise twist.  South there will be a counter clockwise twist.  At the equator there will be no twist.  Please report any findings.
The ships Water King was furious about the water usage.

Among the responses were: twist of the stream is influenced by twisting the instrument.
Twist of t he stream is controlled by the instruments rifling.
Smooth bore, no twist.

"These things must be done delicately-- or you hurt the spell."  - The Wicked Witch of the West.
"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.

What about the, uhmm, instrument's inherent laminar flow?

I could see a problem with Premature Discharge of the weapon. Not mine of course! No. Never. Not even once.  :whistle:

Looks like fun. Especially when nobody's shooting back.
