    If the photo is legit, a shell exploded prematurely in the barrel. However, the shredded barrel appears photochopped.

    Blossoming is fun to watch from a safe distance. Giving the crew shit afterwards is worth the jumpscare.

    Plenty of similar pix on Google, but of course a meme does expand.

    Wonder how effective they were...sure, getting this gun to where it was needed was a definite advantage, but was the gun big enough to actually stop a tank? (just because its designated AT doesn't mean it WLL stop a tank) - Zero protection from any following infantry or the tanks own anti personnel guns...could be easily captured in battle and quickly turned against the users side...Don't like it.
    An emergency piece of kit IMO.

    I am currently most enamoured of this shot.
    5th Canadian AD Firefly IC in Holland, April '45, with all the trimmings.
    Duckbills, Churchill track, 'extra' muzzle brake, wavy barrel & natty looking crew.
