Wow, that's amazing. US 30mm AP shells make a hole that you can put your hand through,but Russian 30mm AP shells make holes that you can put your finger into. Proof that US weapons are better!

This page has a great example of what a 30mm round can do. The Mk108 vs Spitfire picture is a Spitfire hit by a 30mm round, and it's almost blown completely in half. But somehow a 30mm shell in this case leaves tiny holes.

30mm ain't that big, it's 3 cm.. if it just penetrates and no explosion the holes ain't that huge.
Looks pretty big to me unless the man in the video is a midget with small hands.
there's another picture I put up that is of a 30mm Armor Piercing round that STILL leaves a large hole, in an armored vehicle.
The diameter is still 30 mm wether the man is a midget or not. Nothing that poster said is untrue.
I think I just showed why you are drivelling. You are giving bad examples that don't apply, or can't be sure of that they apply.
You can't see how big those holes are on that picture.
Only relative to 20mm and 90 cal, not the actual size, also it's armor piercing or explosive?
As also nobody can prove it was a rocket that downed that plane. So believe what you want. It doesn't matter. Ego's at play who want to be right.
