History Always Has Stories To Tell
These Are Particularly Amazing
The infantry soldier’s occupation has always been one of misery punctuated by sheer terror. This giant special edition of Surplus Military & Classic Firearms explores an array of weaponry used to battle on the ground and through the air.
While big iron is required to destroy mechanized gear, man-portable weapons have always represented the last mile determining the outcome of armed conflict. In this issue, you’ll read about weapons like the Browning Auto-5, HK91, ZB26 and the Rubik’s cube of tactical shotguns, the Franchi SPAS-12. Handguns and edged weapons played their roles in world history, too. You’ll also get to examine the mechanics of the Czech vz.52 and even the role of the machete in modern combat.
The impact on military history of machine guns adapted for use in the skies is unmistakable. In “Airborne Defense in World War II: Guns of the B-17 Flying Fortresses,” read about the use of Browning AN/M2 .50-caliber machine guns in the American B-17 bomber fleet. With later models packing as many as 13 of the powerful machine guns.
The nature of “mobile warfare” changed the mission and weapons dramatically. Discover how the most collectible guns of our generation shaped the world we live in today.
