Custom Made Revolving Rocket Launcher?

Saw this on ebay. Interesting but a little pricey. Claims to fire 600 YARDS? Also says it was used at D-day in Oklahoma a few years ago.

I saw these at DDay '08 in one of the tents. It looked very cool but was a lot to handle and never saw it being fired.

Eclipse Launchers will fire Nerfs, and pretty much whatever else you ram in there. They can run as a belt-fed as well.

From the video, given the time it takes to hit that target I doubt this could fly 600 yards unless elevated at an 80 degree angle. Even then there would have to be a severe tail wind and maybe even fired from a hill. 600 yards is some serious distance.
