I've met some cool people over the years CEO's, athletes, actors, writers, producers but none cooler than Sargent Al Exon who was born in Forest Hill now lives in Mount Albert. 93 year old WWll veteran who who was in the Canadian Air Force in 1944 at 19 years old. He was a radio operator and back up gunner for the crew of 6 in the pic. He was in the Atlantic on D Day and was waiting to go to the south Pacific in 1945 before the Japanese were pounded into submission and quit. I asked him if he was ready for the Japs he said fuck ya! His flight log shows his missions over France and Germany. He took fire on his very first mission at 15,000 feet but they all got back safely. I could go on forever what a treat to meet and chat with him absolute thrill what a beast of a man who drinks warm beer and takes no shit. He invited me over to shoot pool something tells me I'll lose. God Bless Al and thank you for what you did all those years ago it was such an honor to meet you 🇨🇦 #WWII #RCAF #USAF #marines #army #navy #1944 #dday #june6 #junobeach #normandy #france #vday #victory #omahabeach #america #britain #russia #worldwar2 #pearlharbor  #westernfront #easternfront #kickedasssssss

Coming of war

Shown above are three German Tiger tanks (one hidden behind bush) crossing a river in a small Soviet village, 22 April 1944. The picture was taken by Valtingojer. Colored and animated by me with some artistic freedom.
Really happy with the track movements and that Total War music :P What do you think?

Big thanks to @critical.war for source photo! Check out his feed if you liked this kind of historical content.

@marineveteranm4 un retrato de la desesperación en la que fue la guerra más grande de todos los tiempos, el frente oriental.

World War Two era Soviet Army T-34/85 medium tank. A simple design that was well armoured, rugged, fast and armed with a powerful 85mm gun. Mass produced (almost 30,000 of this variant rolled out of the factory!), it was the scourge of the German army on the Eastern Front and only outclassed by better German tanks later in the war.

🇬🇧 German soldiers on the Eastern Front (summer 1941). Barbarossa operation supposed the conquest of the Soviet Union by the German Wehrmacht using what we know today as Bliztkreig, reaching up to 80 kilometers per day. On their way they faced the climatological anomalies of the Russian soil: ice in winter, mud in autumn (rasputista) and dust in summer, as we can see in these two soldiers posing happily while one of them smokes a cigarette.

Two German soldiers in combat position in a snowy field, Eastern Front, 1944. The one in prone position is manning an MG 42 machine gun. The one standing, is armed with an StG. 44 assault rifle. The Sturmgewehr 44, or StG 44 was the first mass produced weapon. This photo was taken during the Soviet advance towards German controlled lands. At this time during the closing years of the war, things were not going so well for the Axis countries.

🇷🇺 Русский медный дровяной самовар из советского блиндажа на Ленинградском фронте. В окопных условиях самовар оказался очень удобен, ведь кипяток всегда необходим для минимального комфорта. Самовар потребляет немного топлива (щепок или даже еловых шишек) и максимально эффективно использует энергию для нагрева воды. В самоварах бойцы кипятили воду и для приготовления чая, скрашивавшего суровый военный быт.
🇬🇧 A Russian brass wood-burning samovar from a Soviet bunker on the Leningrad front. In the trenches samovar proved to be a very handy device. Hot water is always needed for the minimal comforts. Samovar needs just a bit of firewood (it could be kindling or even pinecones) and uses it's energy with maximum efficiency to boil the water. Soldiers often used samovars for the tea making, tea helped to brighten up the harsh war-time life.

Château-Thierry
Немецкая болванка угодила прямо в довоенный вал. Закрепившись на этом рубеже , советские солдаты окопались прямо вдоль него. Два бойца решили использовать край воронки  оборудовали ячейку на двоих. Дно уложили досочками с бочки и накрыли  сеном. Двоем и в бою понадёжнее и ночью теплее будет. Вот такими боевыми двойками вдоль вала и расположились наши красноармейцы.  Откуда они взялись!!! Неожиданная контратака вермахта, численное превосходство наступающих, плотный огонь не даёт сконцентрироваться ! Боевой друг четко из СВТ кладёт фашистов одного за другим . Мой ППШ ревет без остановки, щелчок. Закончились патроны. В торопях меняю диск. Только хочу высунуться , как вражеская пуля молниеносно сносит каску с головы моего товарища!!! Он медленно , откинувшись назад , под внушительным собственным весом опускается на сено вместе со своей боевой «Светланой» . Оглядываюсь на лево , две фигуры навсегда застыли в соседнем окопе. Справа замолчал «Максим» . Лицо товарища все в крови.  Ему уже никто не поможет. А он не раз спасал мою жизнь....... Спустя долгие годы поисковики обнаружили эту ячейку на краю воронки. Куда подевался медальон  погибшего ,  нам остаётся только догадываться. Весной посмотрим вал более детально, а пока картина того боя такова... #копповойне#военнаяархеология#археология#коппостарине#вов#великаяотечественнаявойна#втораямировая#великаяпобеда#война#восточныйфронт#демянскийкотел#оружиепобеды#оружие#поисковыйотряд#поисксолдат#солдат#поиск#мд#РККА#военныефото#ww2#wwii#worldwar2#militaryarcheology#worldoftanks#easternfront#war#metalldetector#metalldetecting#helmet#

@waldmuellersstk @plasmadrone schusters.ru do sell these items but I can’t vouch for quality/construction as I’ve never owned any from schuster, I imagine they’re good enough though!

Забытые блиндажи иногда могут преподнести совсем неожиданные находки. В Северной Карелии в одном из жилищ электриков из Норда попалась модная фигурка собачки. Как ее сюда занесло, рассказать уже некому, пофантазировать на эту тему можно вечером у костра. Вообще северные блиндажи электродов это отдельная тема для повествования)

The Marder II was a German tank destroyer of World War II based on the Panzer II chassis. There were two versions, the first mounted a modified Soviet 7.62 cm gun firing German ammunition, while the other mounted the German 7.5 cm Pak 40gun. Its high profile and thin open-topped armor provided minimal protection to the crew. Nevertheless, the Marder II (and similar Marder III) provided a great increase in firepower over contemporary German tanks during 1942 and into 1943. Only four Marder IIs remain today.photo taken somewhere on the eastern front, circa 1943. #ww2 #worldwar2 #easternfront #marder #autocannon #artillery #wehrmacht #panzer #tankdestroyer #secondworldwar #germany #axis

🇷🇺 Металлический каркас кавалерийского седла Вермахта, найденный на немецких тыловых позициях в районе Любани. Несмотря на устоявшееся заблуждение о тотальной моторизации немецкой армии, немцы достаточно широко использовали кавалерию во Второй Мировой войне. В составе пехотной дивизии Вермахта был кавалерийский разведывательный батальон, а на момент начала войны с СССР у Вермахта была даже отдельная кавалерийская дивизия, в 1942 году переформированная в танковую из-за проблем со снабжением.
🇬🇧 A Wehrmacht cavalry saddle metal frame, found on a German rear-area position near Lyban. Despite the common misconception about the total motorization of the German army, cavalry was widely used by Germans in World War II. Wehrmacht infantry division included a reconnaissance cavalry battalion, and at the beginning of the war with USSR Wehrmacht even had a dedicated cavalry division that was reorganized into a panzer division in 1942 due to the difficulties with supplies.

Panzerdivision and the Kampfgruppe 'Lammerding' it was ordered to delay the russian advance of the 1st Guard Army which broke through the first line of defense by 28th December 1943. To gave 'Kreutzer' time the Kampfgruppe 'Lammerding' launched a counter offensive which was more effective than anticipated and lead to a careless defenseline of the Sperrgruppe. The 1st Guard broke through on the 31st of December while Mansteins 1st Panzerarmy arrived which was thrown into counter attack after counter attack but managed to bring the 1st Ukrainian Front to a standstill.

MG 42: Germany’s WWII Machine Gun
Despite its success on the battlefield, the MG 34 was handicapped by its high cost and slow production time. In 1937, a competition was held to develop a successor to the MG 34, with a number of companies participating. Werner Gruner of Johannes Grossfuss AG, with no prior experience in small arms design but with extensive knowledge of metal stampings, entered a recoil-operated, largely stamped machine gun, which was selected in 1939 for further development. His design was designated the MG 39, with it deleting the MG 34’s drum magazine option, increasing the rate of fire, and simplifying the sights. An improved variant, the MG 39/41, was introduced in 1941, with 1,500 units sent out for field trials. With the field trials proving successful, the weapon was accepted for service as the MG 42, with it entering service and production in 1942. Production was carried out by Gustloff, Mauser, Grossfuss, and a number of other companies. Weighing in at 25.6 lb (11.6 kg) and at 48 in (1.22 m) long, the MG 42 was another typical wartime design, being made of largely stamped components. This method of construction made for a much cheaper and easier to manufacture design, with it being 75% of the cost of the MG 34 and requiring half the man hours. It fired 7.92 mm Mauser (198 grain (12.8 g) at 2,428 ft/s (740 m/s)) from the same 50- or 250-round belts as its predecessor, with the former carried in a drum container. The MG 42’s high rate of fire of 1,200 rounds/min was intended to create a volume of fire that was so high that it would be impossible for enemy infantry to advance. Though useful, the high rate of fire led to rapid overheating and wear of the barrel and rapid ammo exhaustion, and could actually be a detriment if the user did not regulate his firing. Sights were a ladder rear notch, sighted for 200-2,000 m (220-2,200 yd) and a front post. As with its predecessor, the MG 42 had a quick-change barrel, with a latch on the right side of the gun granting the user access to the barrel. Continued below!

The moment the 8,8 cm L71 Pak 43/1 gun of a German 'Nashorn' tank destroyer fires is caught on camera. Soviet Union, 1943/44.Despite its deadly reputation, the German ‘88’ was difficult to move and deploy quickly and effectively in the battlefield, especially in the vast expanses of the Soviet Union where flanking movements could be easily achieved and speed was of the essence. Eventually, in 1942 a solution emerged in what would become the last of a series of interim tank destroyers fielded by the Germans: the Sd.Kfz.164 ‘Hornisse’ (Hornet), later renamed in 1944 to ‘Nashorn’ (Rhinoceros) by Hitler himself, apparently because ‘Hornisse’ wasn’t aggressive enough.As with its predecessors, the Panzerjäger I and Marder series, the Nashorn was built from a mixture of already available materials, although unlike the former, it was purpose-built around the 88mm PaK 43 gun. The resulting frame was the specially designed Geschützwagen III/IV tank chassis which took elements from both the Panzer III (driving and steering system) and Panzer IV tank chassis (suspension and engine).When it entered service in mid-1943, the Hornisse/Nashorn was the most powerful 1st generation tank destroyer in the German arsenal, but it still had the same handicaps as its predecessors: a high silhouette that made it difficult to conceal and an open,  under-armoured fighting compartment that kept its crew vulnerable to artillery and AT fire.Despite these shortcomings, its gun ruled the battlefield and action reports of T-34s being destroyed at ranges of 4,000 m were not uncommon.
It is said that a Lieutenant Beckmann from sPz Jag Abt 88, destroyed a Soviet IS-2 at a distance of 4,600 meters near Märzdorf, in March 1945.It was a Nashorn (from the 2nd Company, Abteilung 93) that destroyed, with a single shot at 250 meters, the only M26 Pershing lost in combat in Europe, in Niehl, north of Cologne, March 6, 1945.494 vehicles were built between mid-1943 and March 1945. #ww2 #worldwar2 #germany #secondworldwar #tankdestroyer #nashorn #axis #wehrmacht #easternfront #armour #pak88
