As you've admitted to pedantry for the sake of accuracy, I'm sure you'll accept my correction of your errors...

The bullet would experience a force from gravity of 9.8 . (mass in kg). The 9.8 m/sec^s quantity you wrongly claim to be the force acting upon it is in fact the acceleration it would experience.

Also, in 1 second, the bullet (or any falling object) would reach a vertical velocity of 9.8m/s, but it would only have fallen only 5m (S = u.t + 1/2.a.t^2), not 9.8m as you claim.

Gob smacked, Steven Seagal appears to be working for the Russians.

So, basically, it was a rant against fake hair?

Beamr - I think that clip has been miss-reported and what is being seen is the rocket booster phase burning out. The boosters have thrust vectoring, hence the trajectory flown as revealed by the smoke trail.

That's right, it was the first phase burning out and the jet engines kicking in seen in the clip. The actual interception was not shown on that film. However my point with the film was the close proximity of the sub, and I was just wondering if it is very heatlhy for the crew to loiter so close to the hostile shore.

Is replenishment not to replace a possibly lost item? or just badly worded, or is he talking ammunition for them?
In the future, please use "preview post" to detect, and thus avoid, the kind of visual clutter that you created.
Thank you for going back and cleaning up the mess.

I don't think you need to analyse his writing Nutty, English isn't his first language, and please don't revert to "page-sized" graphics.

To replenish is to refill not replace.

Since the question of language has been raised, it would be good if you could sort out the difference between "its" and "it's " e.g. " unaware of what hit it and it’s range.. win win either way."

It's very simple and necessary because the more this bloody mistake is repeated, the more difficult it is to eliminate it.

Nutty, if we're talking pedantry, it's one fell swoop.

When does the the rainy / bog season commence in southern UKR ? Much of the current modern arty seems wheel rather than track based which presumably will limit manoeuvre / increase vulnerability in wet conditions. Following that scenario through, UKR will need to be in good positions before any winter pause.

To replenish a stock it to replace that which is no longer there, and he was referring the MLRS system, but I will give you it, that it could be a language barrier

Yes, it has all disappeared. I have no idea if this can be anyway browser-specific ( I'm using Brave ).

That depends on whether you're quoting Shakespeare, or Col. Sanders.

Bugger, an allegedly captured Harm Missile


It has warranted item stencilled on the main body, does that mean they can get their cash back?

It's only the propulsion section and the shrapnel damage to it is likely from its own warhead.

Oddly, Error Level Analysis of the text printed on the tail fins etc is showing evidence of photoshopping.
