Thursday Wifus with Rifus

 More not safe for fan-service below the break.


  1. Everybody overlooks what single thing made the 88 MM FLACK-38 and all the rest of the German AT and AAA guns so deadly, and deadly at such long ranges. The RANGE FINDERS. The Germans equipped everyone from MG crews up with highly accurate range finders. When people talk about the loss of 400 British tanks (mostly Sherman's) on the first day of "Operation Goodwood" They tend to think that the Germans had hundreds of Tanks lined up killing the British. They didn't. What they had was a handful of 88 MM FLAK 38's in an apple orchard on top of a hill. They were making one shot kills at ranges out to 3000 meters. I have read endless critique's of "Monty" for not sending the infantry in to "protect" his tanks. From guns they could not see. History gets so much wrong its amazing---Ray

    1. Military historians can get fixated on some of the weirdest theories.
