    "An underwater photo of a U.S. DD Sherman lying off Omaha beach. The DD Shermans were a modification of the classic Sherman tank to allow them to swim. They were fitted with twin propellers for propulsion while afloat and had a canvas floatation screen fitted to the hull. The intention was to launch the tanks which would swim ashore and be able to provide close support to the troops in the first wave. Unfortunately on D-Day the waves were too high and many DDs destined for Omaha were swamped and sank while still well off shore. On other beaches the commanders realised the danger and brought their DDs much closer inshore before launching allowing them to reach the shore." naval-technology.com

    B-57 Canberra 4 

    The Martin B-57 Canberra is a United States-built, twin jet engine tactical bomber and reconnaissance aircraft that entered service with the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1953. The B-57 was a licence-built version of the English Electric Canberra; the Glenn L. Martin Company later modified the design to produce several unique variants.

    The Canberra was the first U.S. jet bomber to drop bombs during combat, its retirement in 1983 ended the era of the tactical bomber that had its beginning with the World War I De Havilland DH-4. The two remaining flightworthy WB-57Fs are technically assigned to the NASA Johnson Space Center, next to Ellington Field in Houston, as high-altitude scientific research aircraft, but are also used for testing and combat in the U.S. and Afghanistan.

    I don’t need to take a shit, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need a toilet!

    I can tell you about the gun fights I’ve been in, and exactly how extremely handy 30 round mags were. As a matter of fact, I woulda really appreciated bigger mags than that! Maybe 100 round drum…..

    M18 Hellcat Tank Destroyer, France, Notice the M2 Browning.

    Interesting side note on the Ma Deuce: the basic John Moses Browning design has been in service with the U.S. Army for going on 100 years, in both .30 caliber and .50 caliber models. However, the advances in cartridge, powder and projectile technology have advanced light years beyond the rounds used in WWII. Hell, the APIP(armor piercing, incendiary projectile) rounds we use currently are freaking amazing out past 2000 meters, and when coupled with a tripod w/ T&E device can deliver sniper rifle like accuracy that is down right catastrophic to light armor, buildings, wheeled vehicles to say nothing of enemy dismounts. If anyone has seen the newest “Rambo” movie, the affect of the .50 in the fight scenes on the human body was very, very accurate. I’ve seen it through a scope, and through the thermal sight of my tank. Truly devastating.
