57mm Recoilless Rifle Versus Cadillac: No Contest (VIDEO)

This is a 57mm M18 recoilless rifle that has been permanently sub-calibered to .50BMG. Something tells me that there was a little package in that Caddy waiting for the projectile to stop by and say hello.

The M18 saw a lot of use between World War II and the Korean War. Developed primarily as an anti-tank gun, it came in real handy in the Pacific against the dug-in Japanese troops.
