I did not find any posts with this URL, so here it comes. This link was circulated to me and features some pretty amazing streaming video from the Blackwater group. They are the security company that recently had some employees killing in Iraq.

Blackwater Shootout 2003

One of the clips shows off the P-90 submachinegun. I admire and respect that little device. The videos seem to have the overall theme of "there needs to be some advances in body armor technology"!

76mm High Impulse Weapon System? Ouch!

The p90 can and will cut you in half, if the guy shooting you knows wht he is doing.
When I play CS (YES I know it is a game) but anyway, if odds are against me, I will use the p90 in a crowd and at least get 2 to 3 kills before they get me.....

How can a 5.7x28mm be more powerfull than 5.56x45? I think that iterceptor body armour can withstand 5.56mm round, or not?

If you made me guess, I would say it is more of a matter of bullet design than muzzle energy since the FN round is designed to bridge the gap between pistol caliber submachineguns and rifles. Here is a blurb off the FN website:

The SS190 due to its unique design with two inserts, the tip of the ogive has a steel penetrator followed by an aluminum core heavier than the forward tip, will cause the bullet to tumble in soft body tissue after 2 inches of penetration. The SS190 virtually eliminates the risk of over penetration This terminal ballistic behavior will cause large wound cavity and quick incapacitation. The SS190 will perforate 48 layers of Kevlar up to 200 meters when fired from the P90 and achieve the same result up to 50 meters with the FsN handgun. The 5.7 ammunition has only 60% of the recoil impulse of a 9mm. There are four types of ammunition: the duty SS190 (0.41c/round), the tracer L191 (0.69c), the subsonic Sb193 (0.44c) and the training round T194 (0.29c).

That covers Class III & IIIA body armor (the bulky tactical vests for protection against military ball ammo and sporting rifles), but not Level IV which often has the ceramic plates to stop AP rounds (30-.06 and 7.62mm AP). Either way, a 93gr. bullet at 2,300fps is nothing to sneeze at, especially at 900rpm!

FNH USA

-Sorry, you asked about Interceptor specifically. The maker says that it "Exceeds NIJ Level IIIA 9mm protection" without the additional hard inserts (boron carbide) and, if I read correctly, with TAP IV inserts can withstand multiple hits of .30 caliber armor piercing (AP2) rounds at 2850 fps!

Love the P90 clip. That little gun sure packs a punch. Never seem to see many countries use the P90.

I am very, very glad I don't have to pay their ammo bill or clean up after these guys!
Wish I knew someone who could get me an invitation to the 2004 shootout. Yeah, right. Like THAT's gonna happen.

They are certainly worth some tinkering to get them to work. What exactly is happening (or NOT happening
)? You do have to have RealPlayer installed and I had to give in and use Internet Explorer since my Mozilla has giving me problems with that page.

You guys aren't vrazy. The streaming links on that page seem to be D E A D. Maybe they didn't anticipate the attention they were going to get.


Here is a link to some pages featuring some of the videos, using embedded viewers, that seems to be working (for now!).
