Designed by artillery lieutenant Edmund Zalinski based on one Meldford’s 1884 design, manufactured c.1894-98 for Fort Winfield, San Francisco. Steam pressure launching a 15″ fin-stabilized fused shell filled with dynamite. The longer barrel provided enough time for the projectile to reach maximum acceleration, since the point of steam-powered launchers like this was to allow for the use of the new unstable dynamite as an explosive load without the sudden acceleration gunpowder entices, which would invariably detonate it. Aesthetic.
As an Arab Starlight I couldn’t just watch VIXX’s music get stolen like this, sign this petition (written in both Arabic and English) and aimed at singer Rida Mandoor who has plagiarized #Dynamite in his new song
