    This is big news, now we can finally engage terrorists in their favorite hiding place, underwater. Serious waste of time and money…

  • JoeB

    America: WE WILL BOMB YOU BACK!!
    Russia: Yeah, well, WE WILL SHOOT YOU UNDERWATER!

    Just as we thought the Cold War was over, another arms race begins! I’ll bet the Pentagon has issued a contract to study how to develop our own version.

    But aside from torpedos, what weapon works underwater? I can see a use for this.

  • so can any one translate?

    This is an old cold war era weapon developed in the 70’s to defend soviet seaports against attack from frogmen. This isn’t something to fight the taliban with. :-p

    I remember, many, many years ago when I was a young lad, watching an episode of “Sea Hunt” (how many of you remember that one?) where Lloyd Bridges was running some tests firing a revolver underwater. My memory is that it worked OK, with a severely reduced range. I seem to recall him swimming a few strokes downrange and picking the spent bullets off the sand. He was probably using a S&W .38 Special. That’s one of the very few specific memories about that show I retain.
