Bofors using pneumatics :D

Looks like a burst disk launcher.

I will not invite them to spudfiles however, those projectiles would be slightly in breach of forum rules :)

I really enjoy watching Bofors demonstration videos, they are very informative and give you an idea of the timing and precision needed to create those weapons.

Kudoz on getting it Spud related :P

Agreed! Like the ones for 3P ammunition or CV90 AFV. But at the same time, they have a certain "unprofessional" feel to them, like it's not a sterile high tech testing environment but someone's back garden - almost like what would happen if you took 25 member of this forum and gave them a large sum of money :D

They should buy a Casio Exilim though :roll:

Still, now they're owned by BAE systems, marketing is a bit more slick - which is a shame, because it should be about results and they certainly get them. Anyway, there's a typo on screen at 2:11 hehe
