Hey, looks like everyone was working on bullpup rifles during that time.

You know the name of that thing by any chance?

Anyway, here's the Einstossflammenwerfer, a disposable one-shot flamethrower good for a half-second's worth of flame. Designed by the Germans in 1944.

I doubt that thing has a name. Looks homemade.

And I remember that one-shot flamethrower. The Russkies thought it was shit.

it was shit because it was a Volkssturm (National Militia) weapon built under the Primitiv-Waffen-Programm ("primitive weapons program")

it did have a SMG the Volksmaschinenpistole ("people's submachine gun")
that was based off the Sten gun(it self a named the "Plumber's Nightmare")


hell the weapons built in occupied Poland
The Błyskawica (Lightning) 700 built in occupied Poland

The K pattern flamethrower built in the hundreds (in one workshop of Antoni Więckowski in Warsaw alone, there were about 400 produced)

That's CornerShot. A badass piece made by an equally badass Israeli, it allows the user to mount a weapon on it and shoot around corners. There's even a little screen to let the user aim the weapon

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CornerShot

Apparently there are versions that allow the M16 and even a 40mm grenade launcher to be mounted. Nothing to be sniffed at head bang

That one was an epic fail because it was an actual airsoft gun with a barrel that could go round corners and had a mirror that helped in aiming. When you force the air through a bent barrel, you can imagine that the projectile (or whatever you call it) comes out with less force, so the sharper the angle the less the projectile will fly. Also, the mirror was basically a mirror on a stick and fell off easily. The fact that it was discontinued speaks volumes

Can't argue with any of that; I never said it was a good gun.

If you receive The History Channel, last night's episode of The Universe was about "Space Wars" so they showed a number of futuristic weapons including anti-matter bombs, lasers and particle beam weapons, "Rods from Gods" kinetic kill vehicles and other goodies. The show is repeated all week.

Well, the Krummlauf only had fixed angles (30, 45, 60 and 90 degrees, I think) and it literally was a bent barrel. Naturally the life of the barrel wasn't that long. 60 years on and I'd say the Israelis improved on the idea

I expect part of it is for sealing purposes and the ammunition might be different (as I recall, Soviet underwater rounds were more similar to darts to improve their hydrodynamics).

? Puzzled ?

I'm looking at the site now and it says that they use the 7N6 or 7N10 or 7N22 rounds for above water fire and the PSP rounds for underwater fire. I suppose they did design the PSP rounds for some emergency above water usage but from what I'm reading they do need to change their ammo before they go above water

"As
of now (mid-2009), the ADS is said to be under extensive field trials
by undisclosed units of Russian Naval special forces. If adopted, it
will replace APS underwater weapons and, possibly, some AK-74M general issue assault rifles in service with Russian
Navy special operation units and other Russian special forces, which
might be engaged in underwater operations (security, counter-terrorism
in the sea, etc)."
ADS can use PSP round and ordinal 5.45x39 round from the same standart mag AK-74.

A .22 belt fed mini-machine gun based off an M4 frame, another excellent weapon against armies of rodents.


And a punt gun, I'm not sure if it's a really large shotgun or a small cannon


The WASP knife, a knife that shoots a blast of compressed air into the wound, causing it's unfortunate victim to practically explode


A knife that's also a gun


Ok, an M249 SAW is hardly unconventional, but this method of firing it is


But never try that with a shotgun.

Here's an odd weapon

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FP-45_Liberator

The odd part is that its primary purpose was that of psychological warfare. An Axis soldier would be pretty worried if potentially any one of the civilians around him had one and was ready to kill him for his rifle.

Even odder still is that the people are willing to pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars today for something that was manufactured for $2.40 back then

The WWI-era Russian Lebedenko Tank AKA the "Tsar tank"

An Russian attempt at a tank designed in 1914 (before the first British and French designs), with the first prototype built in 1915. The vehicle was built on a tricycle assembly with 9-meter tall front wheels intended to drive over obstacles. The tank was intended to be armed with machine guns and light cannons in four turrets, a cannon turret on top and three MG turrets on the side and bottom. When the vehicle was first tested, the rear wheel got stuck in a ditch due its weight in combination with an inadequate engine. The project was abandoned in 1917.

Remember that there are hundreds of failures for every successful design idea.

I can't say that I wouldn't be intimidated at first by that thing above, but I would quickly realize that the wheels are susceptable to arty or explosives, and an immovable tank is a poorly placed and extremely vulnerable pill-box.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

A proposed WWII German oversized tank, never actually built, the P-1000 Ratte. Armed with two 280mm (11 inch) naval guns, two 128mm anti-tank guns, 8 20mm AA guns, and 2 15mm machine guns, equipped with armor that could have only been pierced naval gunfire and aerial bombing and powered by two U-Boat engines, the Ratte was more a land battleship than a tank. Intimidating and lethal to land forces without air support, but, had one actually been built, i suspect it would have been very vulnerable to aerial bombing.




Ratte fact sheet, translated from German.
More info on the Ratte, with a scale model compared with model tanks and trains.

Quite aside from the vulnerability to air attack issue, just imagine the mobility problems such a machine would have.

Yeah... takes up at least two, possibly more lanes on a highway*, gets about fifty feet to the gallon*, and can destroy many bridges without firing a shot, simply by driving over it!*

*All of these are estimates (and the gas mileage probably a hyperbole), not based on any actual data.

its top speed wouldn't be that great either,it could only be used on open land,so mostly against the Soviet forces, and would sink in the mud at the first drop of rain,it's tracks would be another obvious weak point,break one with a mine or anti tank gun and it grinds to a halt and can you imagine the sort of equipment you would need to repair a broken track on that thing ?

I'm under the impression that the thing was more for morale than actual fighting. After all, you'd expect most enemies to take one look and run for dear life
