    Elavation 76 velocity 66 kills the bunker. Took all 15 shots to kill all three. Last four shots killed all three. Fun game! Neat weapon.

    As a 20 year member of the Artillery, it brough back sweet memories. 8" SP = Artillery does it with a bigger BANG

    Wait till you get screen 4. The target is between two high peaks and your shooting from a higher spot. Took me 11 on that screen.

    Crank the velocity to 100, put 70 degrees in for inclination, fire one, work your way back with the angle. You only need to tinker with the speed if it's up really close or a "tweener" in the later rounds. Don't remember my score, but never ran out of bullets.

    It gets a little interesting when you get to the screens where you only have enough ammo for a couple shots per target. 81,000 was as far as I got before running out of ammo. Screen 10 or 11 I think. I quit, Time to get ready to go to the gun club.

    Screen 11 82600. Timing the choppers right really boosts the score.

    I hope the Army doesn't waste as much ammo as I did shooting that thing. It probably costs about $1000 a round.

    It was extremely stressful having gone through all the screens and having one shot left to break the very last target. Wasn't exactly like the last shot after breaking 199 but it was close.

    I nailed it with a final score of 162,100

    Now back to breaking that 200 straight.

    Thanks for the fun diversion.
