None were used, despite the design being the most promesing off the "amerika" bombers.

We will never know actually.... Do you think there might be some truth in this story?  :o

After all the Allies confirmed the plane had the range to reach USA... So it's possible they tried to pull this out, probably at Hitler's insistence.
I dont know, but its a mission that was possible considering the  390's capability

Unusual photo from 1939.A scene like that,was rarely taken by camera during the battle.The third soldier from left is holding a French LMG Chauchat.

This picture are for a training. The explosion are a "earth" explosion so it is 100 gram TNT digged 1 meter down the earth to give this dramatic picture. No sane person will be standing if it was a ordinary granate there would be granate fragments all over and stones too. Just too dangeus.

Might be a stupid question. But this Anna Kreisling is totally made up right?

Jews hurrying to an assembly point for deportation
Bildarchiv Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin.
Quote from: http://ww2today.com/5th-august-1942-warsaw-orphans-leave-for-treblinka
Whilst many in the Warsaw ghetto were desperately trying to evade the deportations there were also those who were resigned to their fate. The orphanage run by Janusz Korczak was listed for evacuation on the 5th August.
It is believed that the Nazis wanted to send Korczak alone to the Theresienstadt concentration camp, the ‘model’ camp where they kept some prominent Jews in relatively decent conditions as a smokescreen for their other activities. Janusz Korczak refused to be separated from his children.
In a move that was witnessed by many in the ghetto he did his best to ensure their last journey was as trouble free as possible:
Quote
I happened to see Janusz Korczak and his orphans leaving the ghetto. The evacuation of the Jewish orphanage run by Janusz Korczak had been ordered for that morning. The children were to have been taken away alone. He had the chance to save himself, and it was only with difficulty that he persuaded the Germans to take him too.
He had spent long years of his life with children and now, on this last journey, he could not leave them alone. He wanted to ease things for them.
He told the orphans they were going out in to the country, so they ought to be cheerful. At last they would be able to exchange the horrible suffocating city walls for meadows of flowers, streams where they could bathe, woods full of berries and mushrooms.
He told them to wear their best clothes, and so they came out into the yard, two by two, nicely dressed and in a happy mood. The little column was led by an SS man.

U-664 met its end later on 9 August 1943 when attacked by three more aircraft from the escort carrier Card. This took place in clear weather under broken cloud. The first was a TBF-1 Avenger, flown by Lieutenant (jg) G.G. Hogan, which dropped two 500-lb depth bombs with contact fuses in two separate attacks. Between these attacks Lieutenant N.D. Hodson in his F4F-4 Wildcat raked the U-boat with gunfire. Then Lieutenant (jg) J.C. Forney dropped another depth bomb from his TBF-1 Avenger. He refrained from dropping the other when he saw the crew abandoning the U-boat. Eight of the crew were killed but forty-four were picked up and taken prisoner by one of the destroyer escorts. Kapitanleutnant Graef was one of the survivors. The Swordfish emblem on the conning tower of the U-boat was that of the 9th Flotilla at Brest.

I remember the scene from "Das Boot" where they sink this English ship and retreat slowly because they don't have the capacity to pick up the survivors. I really hated that scene. It was done too well.

Interesting how the nuke is painted in red compared to the conventional bombings, i didn't know it was done that way. The Enola Gay also has it?
Also interesting how it did another bombrun after it dropped Fat Man.

It seems so. See the faded off red paint on the right side of the pic?

U-643 being attacked with depth charges by a B-24 Liberator (T/120) under the command of Flight Officer Webber. His 120th Royal Airforce Squadron was stationed on Iceland, when he started the attack on the german submarine on October 8th, 1943 at 1:12 PM.

I usually imagine my own sounds with it, like `tjunk, tupdieyupdiedee` aaa enemy spotted, ratatatataboom

The bomb run wouldn't be painted on until after the bombrun was complete.  So that red mark can't be for an atom bomb, it has a different meaning.  Same with the enola gay's markings.
