Night Shoot by Skoshi8 Night Shoot by Skoshi8
Probably taken at Fort Kamehameha, Oahu, Hawaii during WW2. The weapon is the 4.7" (120mm) antiaircraft gun M1, known as "The Stratosphere Gun" as it could shoot to nearly 60,000 feet. It was directed by radar and used into the mid 1950's when the Nike missile came into service. 550 were built but none ever shot down a plane.
