    Thrilling Wonder has a serious big machine fetish. Today they feature a smaller machine that combines motorcycles (or at least scooters) and big military guns in the most unusual military vehicle I have ever seen.

    Don't keep us in suspense... how much does it cost?



    Not to Francobash, and not that it's a reflection on the gear per se, but that's not the most ringing endorsement...

    On a cool sidenote, one website claimed that the French gov't cut off supplies of Douk-Douk knives to Algeria during the insurgency, due to their popularity for the throat-slitting of collaborators:

    Looks recoilless to me

    I was thinking it might be a 106 mm, but It's been so long since I've seen them that I'm not certain.

    Hmmm... a kaboom with that thing could really be painful.

    I don't know that a kaboom could happen with a recoilless rifle. The gas vents out the rear when the case liner ruptures. But I never discount the impossible/improbable.

    yeah. i've been threatening to strap some 4" mortar tubes to the sides of my streetbike and ride around luoyang like that during the new year. cost is about 2$ a round here, so i could do some serious damage on a cheap budget.
    would have to be a zippo windproof ignition system, though, at 60 kph on the nanjing road. they have a tank outside the tractor factory that we could do a youtube on, but i just don't think i have enough guanxie to get out of that one.
