Where from Wookiee?

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Trench_run

 

 

here is the line from the book

 

"Vader, concentrating his attention on the one ship remaining before

him, fired.

 

Luke didn't see the near-lethal explosion which burst close behind him.

Nor did he have time to examine the smoking shell of twisted metal which now

rode alongside. The arms went limp on the little droid."

 

 

yeah pretty clear.

Err... even a modern tank can fire a "MegaJoules" weapon. A 120 mm tungsten carbide or uranium shell from a M1 or Leopard 2 tank (6 kg at 2000 m/s muzzle velocity) has a kinetic energy of rougly 12 MegaJoules (1/2 * 6 kg * 2000 m/s * 2000 m/s = 12'000'000 J). ;)

 

Movies do such a bad job at representing real life.

 

Its funny when you see a cop taking cover behind his car door which is catching all the bullets. The funny thing is any gun will blow right through the door and hit the cop. The ONLY thing capable of protecting you is the engine block and even that can be rendered useless vs high caliber rounds like 50 cal rounds which will blow a jersey barrier in half.

 

Mythbusters showed the difference between a hollywood explosion and a real explosion. The car got blown up into a fireball which looked cool but the frame of the vehicle and everything else stayed intact. When they blew it up with some real explosives scraps of the car was being picked up from a thousand meters away. That engine block which is the most dense thing on a car was nothing but a twisted piece of wreckage.

 

Movies do a terrible job at representing at what a lot of the stuff its showing off even if its science fiction. Hell fighter jets don't even dog fight anymore. They just shoot missiles at each other from 50 miles out and get hit before they even realize it.

Actually when they first invented target locking missiles they thought just that....but quickly found out that we lost a lot of air superiority when pilots were not trained to dog fight. Hence why we have the Top Gun program
