    Breaking news a C130 gun ship has been deployed against Al-Qaedaa targets in Somalia! Probably with interesting effects!

    In my opinion probably one of the most devastating weapons platforms ever created, would hate to be in its alledged 1Km kill zone or any where near it. Got to say when the yanks get it right, they really get it right. can you imagine the amount of scrap brass one of those things can generate?
  2. Gotta link, Biccie?

    And given your newfound SNP affiliation, shouldn't you change your name to 'Shortbread'?
  3. Yeah. I just heard nuclear tipped ICBMs are headed to Mogadishu even as we speak. I have a link.

  6. Methinks Uncle Sam may be a tadette more involved in recent shenanigans in Somalia than he's been letting on, what with the warships off the coast and all as well.

    I know, but a harbinger of death called "puff the magic dragon" just makes me smile! Spectre sounds to Serious. :roll:

    CBS news link
  8. Yep i agree biccy , I am still a coc k . If that is deployed out there things must be pretty deep . The amount of times we have tried to get hold of one in Iraq and the yanks have said FO. I think in 4 years in Iraq the brits have had them 3 times.

    Well I guess we could always ask Gordon if we could have one of our own? although apparently he isnt very happy with UK Armed forces a present, but thats ok because the feelings mutual and the guys a slack jawed knobber.
  10. Feck him , I am sure if the suntanned hoards were attacking us he would relent
