Mig-3. Tests on this plane began in April 1940 when it was thought that dogfights would happen at a higher altitude. In the beginning of 1941 around 100 we're ready. Mig also means flash or twinkle so this became a nickname for it. Although good the Yak-7 was faster. The initial plane had 5 wing based guns. But in December 1941 Stalin decided the Il-2 was a priority so in 1942 production was stopped. #ww2plane #ww2museum #ww2 #warthunder #warhistory #war #airforce #ussr #mig #militarymuseum #moscow #militaryhistory #warplane #вов #самолетссср #самолетывойны #самолет #ввс #монино #военныймузей #военнаяистория #миг3 #истребитель #авиация #советскаяармия #ссср

Third 1898/05 n/A posting this week but this one is special, a saw-back. This blade was either issued to an NCO or to a Pioneer/Machine Gun/Artillery unit member. Over the course of all production, 6% of blades were saw-backs, very much a German practice. Made by H. Mundlos & Co. of Magdeburg. No Imperial ownership stampings present but factur marks present on the spine and pommel. This is a heavy blade and we can picture the functionality of the saw in the clearance of scrub, small trees and fence posts. Complete with original leather frog and scabbard, originally painted black.

theworldwars. A Sherman from the 6th Armoured Regiment at Cassino on May 25, 1944.

A Sherman from the 6th Armoured Regiment at Cassino on May 25, 1944. The fourth and final battle at Monte Cassino was launched halfway through May 1944, at a time when Allied commanders hoped to tie down as many German units as possible in Italy while buildup continued for the invasion of Normandy that was to commence within a month. The final assault against Monte Cassino and the areas around it involved Allied military elements from as many as six different countries, and the daunting task of capturing the monastery itself fell largely to the Polish this time. The Allied plan was to have American divisions of the Fifth Army attack up towards Rome along the coastline. The French Corps and British XIII Corps were to attack in the center of the front, with the French across the Garigliano River into the Aurunci Mountains and the British on their right through the Liri Valley. On the right-most flank, the Polish II Corps was to attack through the mountains behind Monte Cassino, isolate the abbey, and then link up with the British in the Liri Valley. Artillery along the Fifth and Eighth Army fronts kicked off the battle at 11:00pm on May 11, 1944. Within an hour half of the attack was underway, and by morning on May 12th most units were meeting their objectives. The French were in the process of moving through the Aurunci Mountains towards the British, who themselves had carried out two successful crossings of the Garigliano, thus allowing the 1st Canadian Armoured Brigade to cross and provide armor support that had been critically absent beforehand. The Poles and Americans seemed to run into the heaviest resistance. The former captured their objective in the mountains behind the abbey, but were soon flushed out by the Germans. Over the next three days the Poles launched a series of assaults only to be beaten back; these evidently cost them nearly 3,800 killed and wounded. Likewise, the Americans were having trouble pushing up the coast. By May 15th the British bridgeheads on the Garigliano had expanded substantially, and the 78th Infantry Division was brought in to help isolate Cassino town from the Liri Valley. [Continued ↓]

Almost finished with the monochromatic underpainting for “Penrod and Sam” (oil, 9 x 12 in.). This foundation, which is a great word to use, serves first as a value map for my color mixing layers later. Secondly, the underpainting gives me a chance to nail down the shapes and lines vs. only pencil marks, and the tones I’m working here provide context for properly judging the ‘overall effect’ when I paint in color. Lastly, this is yet another layer of oil over the textured background I apply first over the new linen surface, which helps provide the very attractive mild impasto that make original paintings second to none on collectors’ walls - oil being the medium of the old masters and the choice of us wannabes as well! . This is why I draw so much as a complement to my color work. It has to be automatic — if I fail here to lay down a strong monochromatic tonal foundation, no amount of fancy color mixing will save the piece. . . #P47Thunderbolt #56thFighterGroup #AviationHistory #HistoricalArt

With a charger in place, this 1896/11 is ready for loading. This particular rifle is a 1906 product. At one hundred thirteen years, it is still as smooth and easy to load as ever. The action, too, is slick and easy. Accuracy, as with most of the Swiss pieces, is spot-on. I am pretty sure @swissrifles would agree that this series of rifles was superior to almost any contemporary military rifles.

But first...Coffee! It has been a long time since the old Swiss 1896/11 has been outside. This morning is glorious in Northern Virginia, though, and it seems a good time to bring her out for some fresh air and sunshine. The 1896/11 is the longest rifle I own, measuring even longer than the Mosins. The six-round magazine of the 1896/11 (and subsequent Swiss bolt-action rifles) is easily and smoothly fed from the unique waxed cardboard chargers. Add a cup of coffee to this mix, and you have a fine morning indeed. #vgca #military #militaryhistory #history #gun #guns #gunsofinstagram #igmilitia #boltaction #rifle #schmidtrubin #schmidtrubin189611 #189611 #straightpull #swiss #switzerland #schweiz #army #milsurp #milsurpguys #coffee #coffeetime #butfirstcoffee . - ⬇️Follow The Mil Surp Guys!⬇️ @photogenic_firearms @humblegunguy @hosergunguy @canadianwarlord @milsurps_and_more @armed.canadian @caligunguy @notaspacecowboy @vintageammomaster @arm.and.gun @u.s._rifle_cal._30_m1 @lifeofareloader @thefiringpin223 @littleblackrifle ---------------------------

the_ww2_gallery. Dancing Devil 🇯🇵 - The Reasons Of Success [Part.9]
———
At this point

Dancing Devil 🇯🇵 - The Reasons Of Success [Part.9] ——— At this point, you probably realised the Ki-44 could go toe-to-toe with the latest Allied fighters and still come out victorious relatively often. But why? How could this unique Japanese fighter fare so well? There are multiple reasons. - Power is vital to a fighter. Any iconic fighter had an equally iconic engine powering it. This was one of the main shortcoming of the Japanese air industry, it was incapable of producing powerful engines. The greater the power available, the better the performance and the greater the load (armament, armor, structural strength) that can be carried without sacrificing performance. The Ki-44-II's engine, the Ha-109, was rated at 1'520hp. This was far more power than what the Zero or the Ki-43 could rely on, and it made the Shoki just as fast as the Hellcat. Performances were thus more on par with latter Allied fighters, allowing the Shoki to clash on equal terms. - But this power also allowed the Ki-44 to wear armor protection for the pilot and have a strong airframe. This had two major consequences. First, the Shoki could absorb damage and bring its pilots home. In fact, Ki-44 units lost comparatively less pilots than other IJAAS units. Hence the pool of experienced Shoki pilots wasn't as depleted as for other aircraft types and, thereby, Shoki units were more seasoned and not made almost exclusively of fresh new pilots. Second, it vastly improved the trust the pilots had in their ride. Armor has a huge psychological impact in combat. Pilots knew they could trade blows and put themselves in dangerous situations, and still come out alive. This had a direct effect on their level of aggressiveness, and who dares win. Japanese pilots flying the armored Ki-61 also displayed a superior level of fighting spirit over other units.

peter.i.keefe. The M134 Minigun is a 7.62×51mm NATO six-barrel rotary machine gun wit

The M134 Minigun is a 7.62×51mm NATO six-barrel rotary machine gun with a high, sustained rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute).[2] It features a Gatling-style rotating barrel assembly with an external power source, normally an electric motor. The "Mini" in the name is in comparison to larger-caliber designs that use a rotary barrel design, such as General Electric's earlier 20 mm M61 Vulcan, and "gun" for the use of rifle caliber bullets as opposed to autocannon shells. .
