I hate him....

First post and I manage to make a snap judgement that proves to me that I hope there is a bridge that this fellow can jump off of.

Perhaps next time he can give a little to the community before he spams his web shit.... I mean site

PS: maybe next time he would care to contribute to the community instead of spamming us with his web site.

"I see a lot of patterns in our behavior as a nation that parallel a lot of other historical processes. The fall of Rome, the fall of Germany — the fall of the ruling country, the people who think they can do whatever they want without anybody else's consent. I've seen this story before."~Maynard James Keenan

Name given from a super volcano name " Krakatoa " .
Its not ordinary shape charge . Did you watch whole video ? It penetrates thick armor from 25 yard distance and the way it does is a new invention .

You are wrong. This is a kind of shaped charge which is not new at all and is called EFP.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explosively_formed_penetrator

Even at wikipedia you can find better explanation of the EFP effect than in above stated youtube movie. They present poor animation of shaped charge jet formation which is not related to their real EFP charge..

And anyway, Krakatoa is really very silly name for that thing :D

Iraqi insurgents used Iranian-made SCs that could put EFPs into the interior of M1 Abrams tanks from several metres . . .
BTW nailz, pay no heed to Sedit - no one else here does. ;)

I'm going to name my next EFP "Pompeii."

And the one after that "Mt. St. Helens."

And the last one "Aftermath of a Mexican Dinner," the hottest and most powerful one of all.
