  • Gav & Dan are at a tank range using the latest and greatest in projectile tracking technology. Combined with the Phantom cameras, they get some absolutely surreal looking footage.

      VERY VERY VERY SURPRISED that those watermelons twisted that cannon shell so much. It appeared to yaw upward at least 45 degrees, alternating the flight path upward in just a matter of 10 feet or so.

    Isn’t that the same range where demolition ranch shot an episode?

  • Ten Ants Parking I drive a small carnow

    If the melons were hanging the round would not have deflected.

    Love how they're standing right in the path of the compensator. I would be intrested in seeing the slow Mo camera on his face when the shock wave hits.😆

    12:45 Is the sparkles and smoke around the shell result of Adiabatic compression?

    I would rather shoot it from the inside. That's how a tank is designed after all.

    Tell me something. Does those hearing protectors you had in your ears really reduced the sound level?
    I had same (although I'm not 100% sure) but they don't reduce almost anything. This made me to buy big industrial ear covers to protect my ears from strong sounds. Also I put and some cotton that helped additionally.

    Around 8:41 - 8:42 if you look towards the top of the trees, you can actually see how the rifling along the round affects the wind.

      Do you mean the shockwave coming off the front and rear of the shell? That's the air being compressed to the point where it has different optical properties.

    In WW2 it was a well known Russian tactic to strap tanks full of watermelons. To deflect incoming artillery shells.
