Fantastic Za, absolutely fantastic! :D :D
The war against Russia will be such that it cannot be conducted in a knightly fashion. This struggle is one of ideologies and racial differences and will have to be conducted with unprecedented, unmerciful and unrelenting harshness. -Adolf Hitler

Strange that we saw the turret AND the hull from the M3 Lee there...

The big wide one was, ahem, stupid.

Modern Mechanix » New Giant Tanks…PEACEMAKERS OR WAR BRUTES

"Britain has blazed a trail in mechanization of her army. She has developed not only the famous Carden-Lloyd and Vickers types, but tracked machine-gun carriers and trailers, which are used in Canada also; tanks especially devised for making smoke screens, and for fighting savages."

Good Lord, thankfully we never lived in that time or half WW2F forum would be hiding from those damned Carden-Lloyds! :D

It is always nice to see ideas that people had at the time. I liked the A-20 with the 75 guns, wonder what kind of influance that had on the first gunships, a C-5 with two gatlings in on the pilot side, saw service in Vietnam. spooky

Tik, a C-5, are you sure? I am aware of the AC-47, AC-119 and AC-130 which still flies today to good effect, but the C-5 Galaxy?

Yes you are correct. I had C-5s on the brain yesterday. I had been watching C-5s and a C-17 do different tests. It was the C-47, and the current AC-130 is one mean piece of equipment.

The armament for the current version of the AC-130 Spectre is 1 x x105mm howitzer and 2 x 30mm autocannons. The C-5 being the monster it is I think might tote one of the 16" turrets from USS Iowa :D

16" That would be a sight.

I love the idea that you can have the 130 cruising around up there and keep constant fire on a target +/- 3 yards almost constantly. I saw a video once of what one did to a building. There was nothing left but sticks and the buildings next to it were just fine.
