The shot of the nitro cars was awesome! Sounded like the ESPN2 commentators. It must be a new thing they're doing.

Fake as all get up. Aside from the fact thats a 120mm Smooth bore barrel, Rounds out of a M1 are either Sabot[dart w/o fins] or simple round nose,flat ended. That round coming out looks to be a Javalin or something of the sort, aside from the fact the smoke ring, wont come out of any missile system leaving a tube, even TOWs mounted on Brads or 901 Hammerheads.

Welllll, I don't know about that. ICBMs have been known to blow a smoke ring during launch. Here'* a somewhat rare (and low quality) picture of a multiple Minuteman launch out of Vandenberg AFB. It'* a poor angle, but that'* the remains of a smoke ring to the right and slightly above the missile in the foreground. I'll see if I can dig up a better shot, but that'* what I had handy.

They don't blow a smoke ring every time, but on occasion they do. Maybe only real missiles blow smoke rings, not those wimpy little things you can carry in a truck. j/k lol! :P

Looks like sabot or covers being blown clear.
Chad, that'* not an American test facility, unless it'* the Fort Knox range. Most artillery testing and development is done out in the desert. I'd say that is probably European, and that the barrel is a test rig and could be just about anything.
I do bow to actual military experience, however, so feel free to punch holes in my logic.
