Nobody Does It Better: Russian Aircraft Cannons Outgun America’s

Modern automatic aircraft cannons are a combination of artillery guns and rates of fire usually found on conventional machine guns. Some types of Russian-made canons can fire even faster than that.

One of these wonder weapons is the Gryazev-Shipunov GSh-6-23 six-barreled 23 mm rotary cannon.
The GSh-6-23 has an extremely high rate of fire, with maximum cyclic rates of 9,000 to 10,000 rounds per minute. Compared to the US M61 Vulcan, the GSh-6-23 fires 50-66 percent more rounds per minute, has a heavier projectile, but lower muzzle velocity. The weapon is also lighter and shorter.

Jonathan Doesn’t Have Money — Alamieyeseigha

By Soni Daniel, Northern Region Editor

In his days as the governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha, otherwise known as DSP, was fondly referred to as the Governor-General of Izon Nation, because he presided over the only state with entirely Ijaw extraction and was seen as the leader of the struggle for the proverbial Resource Control in the Niger Delta. But his popularity and political career was cut short when he was impeached towards the end of December 2005 and replaced by his then Deputy Governor, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who later became Nigeria’s President following the death of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua in 2010.

The Cry Of Nigeria Immigration Pensioneers

The Pensioners under the ages of paramilitary service personnel have cried out over the anomalous capture of paramilitary service personnel into the 2004 contributory service pension act, using our gratuity to pay us (pensioners) pension since we have not contributed enough because we were having less than 10 years to serve. They would have given us our full gratuity and return us to the old pension scheme,instead of using us as experimental guinea pigs. Please our able president, help us to retrieve our gratuity from PENCOM and return us to the old pension scheme. Our people are dying like chicken everyday. NB: This article is writing by my father Mr Benson Uduehi a retired immigration officer from benin city, Edo sate. Please mods help push this to the front page till it get to the appropriate quarters.
