This is a video of 4 bazookas that would fire simultaneously.

Seems like mostly a waste of ammo to me.

Humm,

This is the US Army, wasting ammo and supply is a feature.

Cheers,

Much more clever would be to turn Zippo lighters into flame throwers. Every self-respecting soldier had a Zippo.

My father saw that done. One of the favorite tricks guys in his unit did was fill their Zippos with 140 octane avgas, then they would go into town and wait for someone to stick a cigarette in their mouth and offer to light it for them. It shot a flame about a foot high.

I would think the danger of burning your hand would be kind of high, but young 20 somethings have always been known to do risky behaviors.

His gloves don't go with his shoes. Major faux pas.

As opposed to a captain faux pas or a colonel faux pas.

I would be good at the General Faux Pas if I was paid enough and had a staff car...

Almost 2 o'clock in the AM Manitoba? Were you staying up for the Northern Lights? O'clock? I had noticed that o'possums were Irish but now I see even time is. We're all doomed.
