Fire Hedgehog

Sorry, I'm sure most of you were expecting a naked pic of a redheaded Russian girl, but this is almost as cool. It was used in WW2 as a low-level anti-personnel plane. I think the nomenclature was the TU-2, but I may be wrong on that. It has 88 PPsh-41 submachine guns mounted in the belly that the pilot could fire at once while passing over dismounted Nazi troops. I've read the combined rate of fire was something like 80,000 rounds per minute. Ah, those Crazy Ivans.

"I have always been a soldier. I have known no other life. The calling of arms, I have followed from boyhood. I have never sought another." From The Virtues of War, by Steven Pressfield.
