Wow. Its horrible to see accidents like that. I mean, it would suck if the cannon were to kill that many but atleast it was doing what it was meant to then.STEELERS BABYI.M.O.G.: I'm sorry to inform you that your sig violates forum rules. Due to obscene, and frankly ugly, choices of colors you must change this. I suggest brown and orange perhaps.

Very unfortunate. However, its a dangerous job and accidents happen all the time."There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong,
or useless pain. The sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no

But the brave, as yet unnamed officer was unable to stop the wildly swinging computerised Swiss/German Oerlikon 35mm MK5 anti-aircraft twin-barrelled gun. It sprayed hundreds of high-explosive 0,5kg 35mm cannon shells around the five-gun firing position.

By the time the gun had emptied its twin 250-round auto-loader magazines, nine soldiers were dead and 11 injured.
Ok who activated Skynet??

I can't help but recall a line from Futurama in regards to this incident..."You'll be the most unpopular robot fighter since Sgt. Feces Processor!"
Yes, I know it's in poor taste.

This AAA is using Passive and Active RADAR systems together...Passive systems are cutting edge. (Obviously they didnt have the technology perfected yet.) Thats pretty advanced stuff to be "Jerry Rigging" with poles in the ground and ropes to stop it from going wild.
Alot of these 3rd world nations hire these fly-by-night defense contractors to help make them something to compete with the latest and greatest. I definately agree it was the computer that was to blame. The reason why it was shooting at the people is because that type of AAA is designed to shoot at low flying, fast moving aircraft doing Close Air Support. With a active-passive system, all it would need to get a lock would be some unknowing soldier using his walkie talkie in the right frequency and walking in front of it and it would identify him as a target.sig deleted by muddocktor-take it up with the Admins
