If you are willing to get into the water in NO and fire underwater you're going to have a lot more to worry about than bullets.

Actually, there's nothing good about the Underwater gun, it's been around for a while, as I've known about it for a while.

"The APS (Avtomat Podvodnyj Spetsialnyj = Special Underwater Assault rifle) was developed during the early 1970s at TSNIITOCHMASH (Central Institute for Precision Machine building) by the team lead by V. Simonov. APS has been in active service with combat divers of the Soviet and Russian Navy since circa 1975."

This isn't too hot about it neither.
"It must be noted that while APS could be fired "above the water", it should be done only in the case of emergency. According to the available sources, the expected service life of the APS when fired "in the air" degrades severely, and the effective range is limited only to several tens of meters. So, the APS is useful only under the water, where it is quite efective. "

And the EkranoPlane is quite an amazing aircraft indeed, but alas, was abondanded after all those accidents with the Ekranoplanes which would end up costing the lives of many crewmen. The EkranoPlane was one of the designs submitted into project "WALRUS" for a new long range ultra-heavy load transport aircraft.

Shattered OUT...

Figures! I always knew Osama Bin Laden was SCUM! The only difference is, Unlke Bin Laden, the slimy green stuff in the pond has a purpose, it feeds some of the fish.


Seriously, I though rifles already worked under water. I know the SEALS carry rifles with them on missions.
