The question would be how high overhead? Too close and human error comes into play (if it was a manned 50).
I'm curious as to what warning shots consist of, and "3" doesn't seem to be enough 50 cal rounds.
I know they have a plethora of options. They chose to say it was the 50 cal, and that it was tired three times.
That just seems like a weak warning if you wanted them to get the hint. According to the report, the Iranians did get he hint, but I just don't see how 3 shots did it.
Strafing the area in front and alongside of them would do it, but unless it was remotely operated I wouldn't trust a gunner. I've fired off quite a few 50 rounds and I know platforms matter, but it would be easy to have rounds going astray while ripping off a burst or two.
I'm not going conspiracy here, I would just like to hear from somebody that's been on a ship or two.
(I assumed warning shots came from like 20mm/30mm cannons not 50 calls)
