Hello everyone, (Not a wah, I'm just not yet serving an so prone to asking bone questions.) I've been caught in a discussion with a geek who has an unnatural knowledge of the Napoleonic Wars, and (as you can tell from the time at posting) it went on for quite a while. One insoluble part of the discussion involved the apparently esoteric question of when Canister/Case Shot fell out of use. He maintained that it fell out of use during the second world war, when the prevalence of thick armour made it not worth carrying Case Shot and the emphasis was placed on more multi-use (I daresay HESH would be the great current example) ammunition types, but I was pretty sure that it's still used both by Ch2 and Scimitar. The problem is that a quick but focused set of Google, YouTube and Wikipedia searches haven't turned up anything to support my assertions. So the questions here are: i. Do we still have something like Case Shot? That is to say, any sort of thing which when fired from a gun turns it into a bloody great shotgun. ii. Is this ammunition type carried by armoured vehicles on operations with enough regularity to say that Case Shot or similar is still in use. I hope you can help, and no...no wah. -I Edit: If Mods decide that answers cause OPSEC type problems, then just delete.
