A Marine unit broke records by hitting a group of Taliban insurgents with a 22-mile artillery shot, Marine Corps Times reports. And you think you’re a good shot? Pfft – this shot was farther than most people’s commute to work.

Golf Battery, 2nd Battalion, 11th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, California launched a 155mm M982 Excalibur round on a group of Afghani insurgents. They fired the round out of an M77 howitzer at Forward Operating Base Zeebrugge, in Kajaki, launching the shot 36 kilometers into the neighboring Musa Qala district. The GPS-guided round was able to maintain its accuracy over an incredibly long distance and strike the Taliban insurgents out of the blue.

This should be written up on flyers in various M.E. languages and liberally distributed in places where it would do the most good. Heads up ********. You got mail. :eek: :D

Wow, now that's arcing it in!

That would be the equivalant of shooting Catalina Island from San Pedro; something that only 16" Coastal Artillary Guns have done in the past.
