VERA: My very favorite gun

Got partial public release today. Still sorting out some details on the final edit for the video, but until I get the last nitpics worked out, here's a post to serve as a place holder.

I wasted a good 20 minutes looking over the China Lake facility to find it, no luck hehe

D_Hall, does public release also give us details of what appears to be some kind of sabot catcher/retardant?

Look in the SE corner of the Northern half of the base.

The video (coming very, very soon) will show it.

Real photo. A screen capture of one frame of video, actually... Yes, the same video that will be posted shortly.

edit: And I apologize for it being so large. I thought the forum software would resize it as a thumbnail. Ooops!


edit2: And I'll put in another pic to hold ya'll over....

Wasn't there another video from before (that I neglected to archive myself?)

Anyway, that is amazing. I love the impact flash, even at subsonic velocities.

What causes the delay in the fiery muzzle blast.
