    Dying is a skill the military should teaching. You don't want that kind of training to fall into the wrong hands.

    Sounds like a round hung in the tube and someone dropped a second one on top of it.

    That move isn't unusual. They've grounded entire fleets of aircraft when finding potential issues.

    ...and the F-22...

    and the F-35...

    I actually saw not one, not two, but THREE CV-22s flying in formation the other day. I got sympathy pains for the maintenance crews when I saw that many up and flying at once.

    The damn illumin rounds have bag chargers. The chargers are full of gun powder and you put on different amount of chargers depending on how much your elevation on your sight is called to set to (how far its gonna go). Most chargers come in neat little yellow or white plastic thingys…but the old ones are in bags that are almost stapled to the round….if the gunline calls for charge 3 you have to literally start ripping off the lil baggie chargers. Maybe thats just how all illimun rounds are…I'vie never fired an ilimun round without em…i always thought it was because they were old rounds..i could be wrong…the fins were always fucked an shiity..always had at least 2 misfires per evolution.

    Random vid on the firing line...
