Normally, shell WP is employed for its incendiary effect. The projectile also can be used for screening, spotting, and signaling purposes. (3) M825 white phosphorus. The M825 WP projectile is an FA-delivered 155-mm base-ejection projectile designed to produce a smoke screen on the ground for a duration of 5 to 15 minutes. It consists of two major components--the projectile carrier and the payload.
Part Two: This part of the lab was to hit Mr. Bill with the projectile as he was sitting on the floor. First, the distance between the projectile launcher and Mr. Bill (3.5m) was given by Mr. Neenan. Next, the given velocity from part one (6.27 m/s) was used to solve for the angle needed to hit Mr. Bill. Once the angle was found, the projectile launcher was placed on the ground 3.5m away from Mr. Bill and the projectile was fired. Part Three: This part of the lab was to hit Mr. Bill with the projectile while he was elevated off the ground.
The gunfire, which sounds like Lucas’s laser blasters in Star Wars (I really wouldn’t know what it actually sounds like), is high pitched and causes contrasting chaos to the deep, loud explosions causing a cacophonous effect. A few
Fire: The Molotov cocktail A Molotov Cocktail is defined as a crude bomb made of a bottle filled with a flammable liquid and usually fitted with a wick that is ignited just before the bottle is hurled (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). The Molotov cocktail is an improvised incendiary explosive device crafted out of easily attainable ingredients. Due to it’s relatively ease of production they are often found in the hands of violent protesters and/or poorly equipped and non-profession guerilla combatants. The main purpose of the Molotov is to light the target ablaze rather than instantly killing it. Although it is a lethal weapon, the objective of the Molotov is to inflict damage all while leaving the target stunned in a way.
What gave the atomic bomb the potential to bring swift results was its capacity for destruction: it could cause more damage over a larger area in much less time than any regular means of that age – and so would send a clear message to the enemy. As per the results of the trinity test, the power of the bomb was estimated to be “in excess of the equivalent of 15,000 to 20,000 tons of TNT; and this [was] a conservative estimate” (Groves 1), the equivalent to the bomb load of 2,000 B-29 Superfortresses. Every living thing within a mile of the tower of explosion was annihilated almost momentarily, and the effects of radiation within and beyond this area were felt in a matter of minutes at most. If used militarily, such an explosion would mean catastrophic losses for the enemy in an instant, thus bringing them closer to defeat and consequently, the end of the war. A few bombs, delivered easily, could destroy Japan – a fact not lost on the Japanese side.
Airsoft BBs are solid plastic or metal spheres. Airsoft BBs are either 6 millimeters or 8 millimeters in size. They range in weight from .12 grams to .3 grams. The typical speed, measured in FPS, usually ranges from 120 FPS to 550 FPS. Speaking from experience, airsoft BBs may leave a mark at the point of impact that fades over time.
Land-mines A certain type of Explosive device that is designed to kill multiple people at once, when the victim detonates the trigger by his /her vicinity can be called Land-mines. Land-mines are placed on, under or above the ground and can stay there inactive for a long time, till someone activates it. Usually, it gets activated if someone steps on it or if someone triggers off a switch of some kind. Sometimes, it’s as basic as someone stepping in to a closer radius of the land-mine. For this reason, land-mines are categorized in victim-activated weapons.
Evidence proving that flight MH-17 was taken down by a BUK missile. This fragment shows part of a serial number with a broken 2 and a Cyrillic Ц from the Russian alphabet. Interestingly proof flight MH-17 was brought around a rocket. This is demonstrated by a scientific examination concerning ammunition sections from flotsam and jetsam of the plane, requested by RTL News. Global specialists underwrite the finish of this examination, MH-17 has been brought around a BUK rocket.
M249 Light Machine Gun The M249 light machine gun is a gasoperated, aircooled, belt or magazinefed, automatic weapon that fires from the openbolt position firing the M855 ball 5.56x45mm round and the M856 tracer variant. It is an adaptation of the FN Minimi, a Belgian made machine gun; used by the United States military. It has a quick change barrel that can be changed in case of a damaged or overheated barrel, is equipped with a folding bipod but can be attached to a tripod for greater stability when firing. It can be fed by either linked rounds or magazines, this way the operator can use magazines from nearby riflemen in case they run out of ammunition. The M249 saw was adopted by the U.S. Army in the 1980’s to provide a mobile equivalent to the M240B heavy machine gun and the M60 medium machine gun.
Motti Motti is a Finnish tactic of attacking an enemy’s flank, which was used extensively by the Finnish army in the Winter War. A motti is a double envelopment manoeuvre, using the ability of light troops to travel over rough ground to encircle an enemy restricted to open terrain or roads. Heavily outnumbered but mobile forces could easily immobilize an enemy many times more numerous. Motti also refers to one cubic meter of fire or pulpwood. During the war, logs known as Motti were used for jamming the tanks by putting it on the tracks of the tanks.
