    Misfired artillery crashes into girl's bed
    http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/04/12/artillery.cat.ap/index.html


    JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (AP) -- A piece of artillery that was apparently misfired by the military crashed through the roof of a New Jersey home miles away Friday and injured a young girl's cat, which had to be euthanized, officials said.

    No people were injured when the two-pound piece hit the Jefferson Township home about two-and-a- half miles from the Picatinny Arsenal and landed in the girl's bed, said Peter Rowland, arsenal spokesman. She wasn't home, but her cat was sleeping on the bed.

    The homeowner told authorities she heard a loud noise around 2:40 p.m. and found the 6-by-4-inch object.

    Picatinny officials told The Star-Ledger of Newark they were investigating. The base had been conducting tests Friday, and it wasn't immediately clear what type of artillery hit the home.

    Picatinny is the site of the Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, whose mission is to conduct research, development and engineering for weapons systems. E-mail to a friend E-mail to a friend

    From the dimensions sounds like maybe it was a mortar.

    well, the only mortar round that would be anywhere close to 2lbs would be a 60mm, but the max range is only just over 2 miles :dunno:
