You'd know how funny that was if you ever saw the ship I was on.

The H.M.C.S Qu'Apelle had two 3"50 gun mountings on it, they were designed and built in the '50's for the aircraft threat of that era. IE, planes that were flying at around 450-500 knots.

We used to fire them at a target that was pulled behind a Tudor and had success at it, but any modern day fighter jet could have blown us out of the water in a heartbeat. It would be like an nhl team vs a peewee team.
