Big Phil Campion is one of those rare men who has “been there, done that, and you love to hear the tale.” He’s a highly engaging storyteller, SAS veteran, mercenary, and Somali pirate hunter. He tells the tale of how once, out of ammo and facing armed pirates preparing to board his ship, he ripped a refrigerator full of drinks away from the wall, lifted it over his head, and smashed it down against the pirates, knocking them into the sea and sinking their tiny skiff.
We’re proud to have him as a long-time friend of SOFREP. Phil has graciously agreed to do an exclusive video series for us…a military road trip of sorts hosted by one of the most engaging warriors of our time. Today he takes us to Fort Nelson, outside of Portsmouth, where he introduces us to “The Great Bombard,” a 15th Century siege cannon of the type used by the Ottoman Turks to capture Constantinople. He also shows us Saddam’s enormous super gun, the result of “Project Babylon,” liberated from the Iraqis a few years ago and now on display.
So sit back, pop a cold one, and enjoy as Big Phil gives us a personal tour of the artillery at Fort Nelson.
