    Default This is what you people are shooting!

    A friend of mine has a nice collection of all things WWII weaponry. I thought you guys might like to see an up close and personal look at what ammo we are firing in War Thunder. For reference, I am 6'5'' and have massive hands (played basketball)... these things dwarfed my hands!

    Both rounds pictured below were produced in the USA during WWII for the Army Air Corps.

    The larger round with the brown tip is a 20 mm armor piercing cannon round.

    The smaller round with the red tip is a 50 cal. armor piercing incendiary round.

    No wonder we all die when our plane gets smashed with these!

    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still.

    Yes its me! It's a very disheveled me though. I had bad hat hair too...

    I was outside shooting all kinds of guns that day. We fired practically every WWII weapon imaginable.
    Russian: Mosin Nagant (both short and long barreled sniper)
    German: Mauser; Luger
    USA: M1 Thompson; M1 Garand; Colt 1911
    Japanese: Arisaka
    British: 303 Enfield rifles (different years and models)

    Those are the ones I can remember...


    As for the Russian Ammo, no...
    We don't carry Communist Spit Balls in 'Murica!!!
    lol
