Vintage artillery "gun-slingers" from across the U.S. gather for their annual showdown--a classic gunnery duel using authentic 18th-century weapons and technology.
At a remote military range in Northern Michigan, vintage artillery "gun-slingers" from across the U.S. gather for their annual showdown--a classic gunnery duel using authentic 18th-century weapons and technology. It's an awesome 21st-century display of vintage firepower. But the ultimate showdown is yet to come!
The vintage artillerymen will go "muzzle to muzzle" against a 21st-century artillery unit. The modern unit has the explosive firepower but the vintage team has the pinpoint accuracy needed to claim victory. Both sides have been practicing hard--firing high-explosive rounds at distant targets to prepare for our high-tech vs. low-tech showdown!
Captured on high-speed film, viewers watch cannonballs, bar-shot, chain-shot, grapeshot, and canister-shot rip through targets. Let the Artillery Games begin!
