But not unprecedented. I believe the US dumped hundreds if not thousands of M60s into the sea as a costal wave barrier or something, maybe 20 years ago.

Then there is million dollar point, at the end of WWII the US wanted to sell their excess equipment to the locals. After the locals refused to buy it, at a significant discount, the US bulldozed it all off the beach! A really interesting dive, but 'everyone prefers to 'go see the lady'.
