Potato Guns On Steroids
Air Powered Artillery
Air Powered Mortars Howitzers & Grenade Launchers
The Locat launcher was air powered & made by IST Aerospace.It was sold and used as a replacement for recoilless rifles use onski slopes and mountain resorts for avalanche control. The company has taken it off of their websiteto refocus their sales on pilotless recon aircraft (Fancy Parasails)
The Locat could throw a 4 pound shell over a mile, all on air power2001 - IST Aerospace changed names then, sold off this sector ofit's operation then it folded.. Too bad, they made on hell of a air cannon.IST Is still in operation but now they make things that are not nearly as much fun.
Winner & Best OverallThis air cannon was also made by IST Areospacefor "Parachute Testing" and could launch a 300 lb shellSorry, I can't remember the range..
I Think it was in the neighborhood of 10 miles.
