Discussion in 'Quiz Me!' started by Mahross, Aug 5, 2003.
Seeing as we have a quiz on most things, thought I would start a weapons one.
Name this vehicle?
A belgian T-13?
I spent a while looking at Italian tanks, as this was obviously rivited (an AWFUL way to make a tank) rather than welded or cast, and I thought only the Italians did that.
However, turns out it is a Belgian T-13 tank, likely Model B3, Entered service 1937. One hundred and fifty units produced.
How about this one:
It looks like a KV2 but it is in fact a Bishop, a 25 pdr gun on a Valentine chassis. Like the KV2 however, it is an ugly monster!
Whoa here, guys - I reckon Munken got it right so should set the next Q ?
Well done munken its your go.
Out of interest Greenjacket that is a Bishop SPG based on the Valentine chassis with a 25lb Gun.
Name this mutha fucka. It's an anti-tank weapon.
This looks like a 7.5cm Panzerabwehrkanone 40 ( Hunengrab ), a Rheinmetall-Borsig design.
Exactly. Over to you Martin.
On 20th February, 1945, the Fuhrer gave permission for... what to be issued, how many, and to whom ??
It is either the Volksgewher (sp???) or MP3008 to be issued to Volkssturm and 'wherwolf' units. Am I anywhere near?
Good try, Stefan - but you're off target !
Heinkel He-162 Salamander to Volksjäger and thousands of them...???
Sorry, Kai - your aim is way off....
Looks like you're all having a bit of trouble with this one - believe me, the answer'll hit you right between the eyes....
Any more clues martin?
Look, I've virtually given it away as it is - if I say any more, I'll really have blown it !! You just need to aim at getting the answer....
I dont know if it was February 20th, but In february 1945 Hitler gave permission for German Smipers to be issued with the 'B-Bullet' white phosphorous incendiary rounds...
Vermillion, I think that'll be good enough !
The subject of the question was in fact the 7.92 'B-Patrone', or Beobachtungspatrone, the 'observation cartridge'.
It was, in fact, a highly illegal ( and unstable ! ) explosive bullet. The secret message from OkW to the Quartermaster-General dated February 20th read ; -
'The Fuhrer has released B-Patronen for use only in the East - each sniper on the Eastern Front is to be provided..with 20 B-Patrone in addition to his supply of 90sS patronen..'
So, you've got the next question, Vermillion....
