I was given a Military knowledge test the other week, one of the questions was :

"Bullets and water..."

that was it, can anyone answer this for me ?

(Sorry if this belongs in The Training Wing, its my first day)

take two bullets, with water, after food. No more than 8 in 24 hours.

See RMO if repeat prescription required.

And the DS answer was
Any object moving through a medium experiences a drag force tending to slow it down. For a denser medium like water, the drag force is much larger than it is in air. Water is 700 times denser than air. The drag force on the bullet scales as the square of the velocity and is also proportional to the surface area of the moving body.
Knowing this, one can set up an equation of motion for the bullet, which gives the distance over which its velocity is considerably reduced. The formula involves the velocity, mass and size of bullet, the density of water, and the drag coefficient.
For a typical bullet with a velocity of 300 metres per second, the depth over which it slows in water is barely a few metres. So a 3-metre dive below the surface is more than adequate.

You need to know this sort of stuff if you are near water and are being shot at.


Google is your friend

Whoever set this question failed.

Firstly its not a question,

Secondly having set you a question(?) they failed to debrief you on the answers.

Bullets and Water
Is all you need for slaughter.

Sounds about right...
But what about x2 yorkie bars ?
They're not for girls.

Bullets and water.... are not both combat supplies.

Ammunition and water maybe.... bullets are a useless item without the rest of the components that make up a 'round' :) (unless you load your own in the harbour area?).

Gay question.

As me learned InfantarEE friend Moon_Monkey points out


.....Are all you need for slaughter.

Though the answer has been in the Infantry forum since longtime.

Well Fags, bullets, fablonned gronk and water, according to the weight of opinion there anyway.

It's a variation on a theme by Kipling, from his poem Gunga Din:

You may talk of gin and beer
When you're quartered safe out here
And sent to penny-fights and Aldershot it
But when it comes to slaughter
You will do your work on water
And you'll kiss the bloomin' boots of 'im as got it.
