WW1 - Motor Machine Guns



Motorcycles with machine guns attached. Very Mad Max in appearance but a very quick innovation to the relatively new addition to the mechanized units. These pics are from later in the war (1918). If the "Happening" guys ever get their road war, they are more likely to fight in something like this than the last of the V8 interceptors.

Motorcycles with machine guns is every boy dream.

Life expectancy of the bikers was probably less than 5 minutes if they ever got into a shooting situation. There is a really good reason why tanks have armored hides. This type of deal would only work against unarmed civilians; kind of like what the Dems have planned if Hildebeast wins.

These remind me of an early prototype for what evolved into the "Bren Carrier", a very lightly armoured armed reconnaissance vehicle used over here (UK.) If you want to see them in action they are featured in " A Canterbury Tale", a film I recommend to all reactionaries if only to see what we have lost ( are losing.)

I really enjoy Weimerica weekly by the way. That was me above.
