he was rushin about
I bet they hung around to collect all the dead fish !
2 second fuse? i call fake!
Why would they do that?
I don't believe that was a grenade.
It went off so close to them that the shrapnel would have been impossible to avoid and seriously life threatening. It doesn't matter about the water - the flame is clearly visible coming up past the gunwales: basically the water between the explosive and the surface is vaporised instantly and would present no barrier to bits of metal at all.
I also think that shrapnel would have done more damage to the boat.
Maybe it was a distraction flash bang.
Funny though and yeah, wtf was the point?
That was an MSS; a marine sound signal. They're a really oldschool way of communicating with submarines through loud bangs.
I'd be interested to know the fatality rates among them, they don't seem all too "User Friendly"
when used correctly I expect the fatality rate is 0, I've thrown loads of them, just not off a RHIB!
