What will happen if you shoot, moving at the speed of a bullet

Does this mean that she will remain in place and will not fly anywhere? At first glance, this may seem like a silly question. However, this is actually a very interesting task, since its solution can be useful to engineers developing, for example, tail firing systems for combat aircraft, which will shoot in the opposite direction of flight.

If you are moving at the speed of a bullet, but in the opposite direction, obviously, the bullet will not fly anywhere and just fall down. But in reality, everything is a little more complicated. Firstly, even if a bullet can fly at a speed of 300 km / h in the opposite direction (at exactly the same speed as you), it will take a little time to reach such a speed. Thus, the bullet will not fall immediately down, as soon as you pull the trigger.

In addition, it is worth considering the air resistance and the fact that in the case of firearms the bullet will rotate. Both that and another will lead to the fact that the bullet slightly deviates from the course and does not fall exactly down.
