Re: WWII Weapons

Not sure if I showed it to anybody else but one of my friends here.
And I know that I post mostly videos of this guy if it's about WW2 weapons.
But there is a reason.
He doesn't put any emotions or so to say unwanted 'patriotic feelings' into his reviews.
What interesting here is that he is comparing a Bazooka to a Panzerschreck and explains why did Panzerschreck have a shield attached to it.

And a PIAT.... Very effective and very short-ranged.

Re: WWII Weapons

Just saw a documentation about the Carrier Graf Zeppelin, 1938, (262 x 36 Meters).

Just imagin if they would have use it.

It was the newest technology, 200'000 PS, 63Km/h fast, had 2 Catapults at the front, 15 modified Bf109-E, 28 modified Stukkas with huge Torpedos, 62 Flakguns, 16 ArtilleryCanones, ... etc.

But Göring was conspirating against the idee, that the marine is getting planes, and after GB and France declared the war, they used the planes at the front and other materials for submarines and ships.

Göring got what he wanted. smile

The germans used it for targeting trainings for their bombers big_smile


They found it some years ago.

Re: WWII Weapons

...

I saw a doku, again 2 days ago about BoB and Operation Barbarossa.

Adolf was waiting too long to start the attack. He was sure about, the British would make peace.

Meanwhile the british produced much more planes per day then the germans.

The pilots had just a short training instead of the well trained german pilots, but the british Radar revealed every german Plan and so they could intercept them very well.

Long time there were false numbers of the amount of planes and the losses. The british had much more fighters then the germans, beside the radar and the FlakGuns.

When it was obviously that the BoB is lost, Adolf started the war against russia, also a mistakes.

Russia delievered hundreds thousends of tons of Food, Oil, Coal and Steal per month to germany until the war was declared. (Stalin was so confused about it, he locked himself for 3 days in his dacia and would'nt see anybody).

The second mistakes from Adolf was not taking Moskau, even his plan to take eastern russia because of its ressources, the loss of moskau would have been an important signal for the moral of both sides.

The third mistake from Adolf was the treating of the russian people. So many of them were at the beginning greatfull about the arrival of the germans. They got treated by stalin for dekades before, but their mind changed fast when they saw how brutal the germans were. (Purge).

Btw. With the Stgw57 we shot also panzergrenades (hollow charge) fired with a propellant cartridge, ... very effective against tanks.

Firing this thing pushed back like a horse.

It had 80-120 kg recoil.

There were guys they did not hold the Stgw good enough and the gun smashed back in their faces.

...

I loved shooting with this gun, more then the STGW 90. Very precise also on long distances.

...

There were 3 different Charges. One was also to use the Stgw57 as a KneeMortar, used against soldiers, MG Nests etc.

(with Bowshot 100-400 Meters range)

Image BBCode test

...

Here a vid from the export version. Not that good as the Stgw 57, but still...

(They shot on 100 meters, but you can shoot with same result on 400-600m, ... ok, then 300 smile ).

Re: WWII Weapons

Wow gee, the most unfeasible, and therefore impractical tank ever built, mass produced when, oh, it can't actually be mass produced because you could easily make 3 Pz mark 4's with the material, likely 6 Shermans and in a fraction of the time

Re: WWII Weapons

Some more Tiger-Stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMDWWFKQgLQ - while killing 22 T34-tanks @ Kursk Franz Staudegger´s Tiger
took 67 hits (most of them @ front armour thou) and made it even back after running out of ammo - not that bad!!
Although it was a bit vulnerable to technical probs occasionally it indeed was a cool tank..
