Russian Military Uses Anti Tank Cannon To Put Out Oil Well Fire

An oil well caught fire in Siberia and couldn’t be extinguished using conventional means, so the Russian military airlifted in a Rapira MT-12 100mm anti-tank cannon and began slinging rounds at the blazing well head, in hopes of separating the fire from the oil. It’s not clear how many shots were fired, but the sun was coming up by the time they knocked it out.
