Forgotten Weapons
« on: 20-08-2015, 19:08:41 »
I'm surprised that a lot of people doesn't know about this youtube channel, so here we go !

This channel is very interresting if you like ww2 weapons

My favorite are the pak40:

and the ww2 explosive sniper ammo (a long time ago it was free on youtube):

But there is plenty of other weapons (many very rare !)
Enjoy !

I've seen a few episodes of this channel and the guy is REALLY knowledgeable. I feel like he's one of the few people that actually loves his job :)

I also feel like VonMudra and him would get along quite well ;D

FH2 effects don't really do justice to how powerful the PaK 40 looks firing IRL.

To be fair, a good part of that is due to the dusty environment.  Another part of it is if it was as loud as it is irl, you would suffer pretty bad hearing damage. ;)

Interesting new video about the VG-5 (VK-98), that FH2 showcased not that long ago.

Awesome vid! Was waiting for him to do an episode on this. The only problem is that his VK-98 has a 5 round magazine :P

Cause the news update about our VK-98 mentions that they were manufactured with no magazine and had to be reloaded after each shot. Just seems a bit confusing unless I'm reading the news update wrong.

There were lots of different makers and designations- the one he reviewed was the VG-5.  It is more than likely that some had magazines, and others did not.
