Another mystery 'weapon' found in Iraq
Following on from a previous thread, any ideas what this new one might be?
It couldn't be a mini deathstar could it?
A mysterious green cantaloupe-sized metal ball with an unknown firing device, found in 2005 by GIs and a freelance journalist in Mosul, Iraq, is confounding weapons experts trying to pinpoint its origin.
Dubbed "Mystery Weapon 2" by Iraq-based journalist Michael Yon, the orb was found under a barn among a weapons stockpile that was later destroyed by the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment.
"If there's anything that, honest to God, could have nefarious overtones, it's that, because nobody was able to tell what it was," Yon said.
FOXNews.com in cooperation with Yon last week published a photograph of a weapon of unknown origin that was believed to be either some sort of rocket-propelled grenade launcher or a mockup. It, too, was found in the Mosul cache.
