Skip to comments.The weapons man: ‘I gave the IRA powerful anti-tank shells the US Army used in Iraq war’
Posted on 04/27/2014 11:30:33 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The IRA has a secret arsenal of deadly munitions capable of bringing down military helicopters and penetrating PSNI Land Rovers, killing all personnel traveling inside.
Millionaire Florida stockbroker turned IRA gunrunner, Mike Logan, says he sent the powerful incendiary shells to the Provisionals who tested them and were delighted with the results. [ ]
As well as arming the Provisionals with hundreds of handguns as previously reported, he has now disclosed that he also sent munitions as powerful as those the US Army deployed against Saddam Hussein in the Iraq war.
He claims that years after the IRA ceasefire, the Provos were still keen to buy heavy weapons capable of killing dozens of police officers and British soldiers.

I don't know what they're refering to and I'm real sure they don't know either.
If I am reading article correctly- this all took place at least 10 yrs ago.
Why the sudden interest, am I missing something?
The Americans used them to annihilate miles of Saddam Hussein's tanks in Iraq. I can't stress how powerful they are. These shells are armour piercing. They penetrate the vehicle they're fired at, then explode and ignite. They can incinerate everything and everybody inside. I bought 20 of them for just $10 a piece at a gun show. I sent them to Spike. On my next visit to Ireland, he said he was delighted with them. The look on his face was priceless. He told me he'd personally tested one of them on a scrap car down South. He said, Wow, they're good. They really do the business.' There are still 19 of these rounds out there. Somebody somewhere in Ireland has them.
I sent them .50 calibre shells called Raufoss rounds, Logan says.

Nothing unless terrorists use them?
The IRA has been at this for close to a century now; these are the long-time buddies of the PLO and other Islamic terrorists, don’t forget. They have no doubt that they know what they have, even if some press drones do not.
I know about the long standing contact the IRA has with other terrorists groups.
There are armor piercing incendiary .50 cal rounds.
Anniversary of the Easter Rising of 1916 just past this week? Wikipedia has an article on it for quick info. For entertaining info look up Foggy Dew by the New Dubliners.
And just where and how did he acquire all of those munitions and guns? .....Had to be crooked Federal govt. sources that had access to the goods and the ability to divert them, as well as allowing them to be shipped out of country.
Yes, of course. They’re called APIC-T. However, you are talking about the tanks the US destroyed in Iraq, the number destroyed by .50 caliber rounds would be pretty far down the line. Also, while they’d be a bad thing in the hands of a terrorists organization, the number they’re talking about (19 rounds) is not a great number. They’re bullets, not nukes.

19 .50 cal rounds?!? OMG!
Lock down all the schools, hide the women and children!
It’s a British press. They get all in a dither about .22 caliber ammunition, too.
Fortunately, no one would want GB in her current state. It’s no wonder that Scotland wants independence.
Agreed but the Provos are not going after MBTs, but lightly protected personnel carriers.
But yeah, what are they going to do with 19 rounds that they couldn’t do far more effectively with IEDs? Also, they need a gun to fire them from. Did this guy sell them a Barrett too?
The article is pretty drama queen-ish.
No, it was their own people that did that. The landowners were still Irish.
Besides, so long as they are both part of the European Union, one will never be “out of” the other. The whole principle of “ever closer union” after all.
Agreed. They’re selling papers.
No, they didn’t. Britain in fact gave the Irish food at cost to the UK, and both Protestants and Catholics died in the famine, at least 100000 Protestants died, the UKs own people in Ireland, in the north. Possibly as high as 300000.
The UK also repealed the corn laws to help the Irish. The British made mistakes but the idea they killed only Catholics and did so deliberately is a nonsense.
I want you the hell out of the US, give your land back to the Indians, and apologise for all the brutality against them, I mean if the Brits get out of Ireland, it’s only fair......mmmkay?. If the Brits are terrorists so are you.
