Sure, a 3", 5" and especially a 16" US Navy Deck Gun can breach even the toughest walls! They do little to douse the ensuing fires though.

I did a chimney once, like someone else has seen. They do a great job removing the shingles from a house and blowing them into the rear neighbor's yard too.
Then there was the one time with a 2-1/2 and a port-o-potty, but that's a whole different subject.
But the question is pretty tough to answer. I've even seen old leaded stained glass windows hold up to a deck gun for quite some time. Of course it was the bar burning across from my apartment while in college, and I have no idea what pressure they were using. Was interesting nonetheless.
