    Truck mounted cannon launching balls into a building. You can see the balls sailing slowly in an arc through the air. Then it impacts with an explosion and cloud of dust. If you're on the receiving end, it's the O.S.! Run away! Run away!

    I think it's Syria. I'll give them $250 for that gun. It's to keep the peace of course.

    They appear to be conical projectiles . . .
    with a lot of combined yaw, precession and nutation.

    impact @ 00:25 also appears to produce clear explosive flash

    Maybe Al Nusra has a line on 3f Swiss. They could stroll it across the Mexican border, set up shop and get on a path to citizenship. Just a thought.

    Typical of the Syrians- THEY get all the re-loading supplies and we get NOTHING. NO primers, powder, bullets. Now I see where all our supplies are going! Maybe we need a civil war? :)
