Picture of the Day (Other eras)
« on: 25-09-2009, 10:09:27 »
It's back! Some of you might remember it from the FileFront forums but now we got it here too, after receiving a PM from Rawhide I friendly asked Lightning and he gave us green light  :)

Anyway, post those awesome WW1, Spanish Civil War, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Kosovo, etc, etc. pictures!
