Senapan Ringan M3, Si Gemuk Warisan Perang Dunia II Yang Masih Terus Hidup.

Banyak negara yang masih terus menggunakan senjata tua era Perang Dunia II (1939-1945). Ada beberapa alasan mereka melakukan hal ini. Bisa karena tidak punya anggaran, bisa juga karena memang tidak membutuhkan senjata baru. Beberapa senjata tua dibawa kembali ke layanan karena mereka masih tersedia, sangat murah. Termasuk pesawat dan kendaraan lapis baja era Perang Dunia II beberapa di antaranya masih akan beroperasi sampai akhir abad ini.Tetapi pada saat ini senjata itu akan sangat mahal untuk merawatnya serta sulit memperoleh suku cadang. Senjata api memiliki masalah jauh lebih sedikit dibandingkan pesawat dan tank sehingga banyak dari mereka masih dalam pelayanan.Salah satu senjata Perang Dunia II yang dihidupkan kembali adalah senapan mesin ringan Amerika M3 0,45 (11.4mm) yang kerap dijuluki sebagai “Pistol Gemuk. Senjata ini dikembangkan cepat pada 1942 untuk memberikan pasukan Amerika sesuatu yang mirip dengan senapan mesin ringan 9mm Jerman dan 7.62mm Rusia. Kala itu hampir semua negara memiliki pistol mitraliur kecuali Amerika.Sebenarnya Amerika Serikat telah mengembangkan submachine gun 11.4mm Thompson untuk Perang Dunia I, tetapi senjata ini tiba terlambat untuk melihat pertempuran. Senjata ini kemudian diupgrade menjadi M3 dan masuk layanan pada tahun 1944 dan 1945.Sekitar 700.000 pucuk telah dibuat. Senjata ini sangat murah dengan biaya kurang dari US$300 (perhitungan dolar AS pada tahun 2016) dan sangat tahan lama. M3 memiliki berat kosong 3,61 kg (8 pon) dan memiliki 30 peluru dengan magazine kotak dilepas.Tingkat tembakan adalah 450 putaran satu menit (7,5 per detik). Dengan demikian masing-masing magazine habis dalam 4-5 semburan tembakan singkat. Kisaran efektif adalah sekitar seratus meter. Setiap magazine memiliki berat 955 gr (2,1 pon).Angkatan Laut Filipina menggunakan kembali M3 pada tahun 2004, terutama untuk digunakan oleh boarding parties. M3 itu dilengkapi dengan suppressor (untuk meletakkan flash ketika turun ke area bawah kapal yang gelap) dan sebuah Picatinny rail untuk menempatkan night sights or atau close range aiming deices dn flashlights.NEXT DIKOMEN

@mfahrulramadhan Kekompakan M3 adalah kelebihan utama. M3 dengan panjang 579mm (23 inci) mampu melepaskan pukulan berat dan keras. Senjata ini yang dibutuhkan ketika ada masalah di kapal. AS juga mengkaui fitur ini dan terus menggunakan M3 sampai 1992.Jenis senjata, yang disebut pistol mitraliur, populer dengan polisi, gangster dan film-film yang identik dengan kekerasan. Melengkapi pasukan (terutama infanteri) dengan senjata otomatis ringan dimulai sebagai inovasi Jerman selama Perang Dunia I (1914-1918).Jerman juga memimpin dalam mengembangkan submachineguns, seperti MP 18, senjata yang akhirnya berkembang menjadi senapan serbu modern. Pada akhir Perang Dunia I, sekitar 30.000 MP 18 digunakan.Jerman terus mengembangkan jenis senjata ini dan pada Perang Dunia II mereka memiliki MP 38 dan MP 40. Pistol jarak dekat (50-100 meter) 9mm tetapi Jerman tidak mempersenjatai infanteri dengan senjata ini, karena pasukan sering harus mencapai target lebih jauh.Rusia menggunakan senjata serupa selama Perang Dunia II. Rusia mengerti bahwa untuk serangan, mempersenjatai semua pasukan dengan submachineguns akan memberi musuh waktu yang sulit menembak balik.Hal ini terutama berguna dalam perang kota atau parit, di mana ada banyak operasi skala kecil dengan personel sedikit pada rentang pendek.Rusia menghasilkan lebih dari lima juta PPSh submachineguns yang memiliki berat 3,6 kg (8 pon). Senjata ini menggunakan kotak magazine seberat 680 gram atau drum holding 71 putaran seberat 1,8 kg. Itu 7-8 detik senilai tembak. Peluru yang digunakan adalah 7.62mm (0,30 kaliber) yang bergerak sekitar 516 meter (1.600 kaki) per detik. Kecepatan yang mematikan. #m3smg #submachinegun #weapon #worldwartwo #worldwar #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #wwiiweapons #ww2weapons

Part 1 of 2: the legendary Hornets. The USS Hornet Cv-8, was a Yorktown class aircraft carrier of the US Navy, commissioned on October 20th, 1941, a few months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Hornet was chosen as the aircraft carrier to launch the Doolittle raid, the American raid on Tokyo as revenge for Pearl Harbor, she would depart San Francisco with 16 b-25 medium bombers and meet up with her sister ship, USS Enterprise, and they would sail to japan and launch their bombers, then return home. Hornets next battle would be the device blow to the Japanese at midway, with her sister ships Enterprise and Yorktown, their air groups would destroy 4 Japanese carriers and multiple other ships. Hornet would see combat in the South Pacific, protecting the route to Guadalcanal. Hornet would see her fate in the battle of Santa Cruz, she was hit with bombs and torpedo from D3A “Val” dive bomber and B5N “kate” torpedo bombers. The crew abandoned ship and the US navy tried to scuttle the ship but she wouldn’t go under, she was finally sunk by Japanese destroyers using “Long Lance” torpedos. Her legacy still lives on as an Essex class aircraft carrier, Cv-12, was named in honor of the Hornet and her wreck was recently discovered by Paul Allen’s research team in late January of 2019.

Auschwitz & Auschwitz-Birkenau. Eye-opening and somewhere everyone should visit at some point in their life. I knew a lot about Auschwitz before going, but only when I saw the scale of it did I realised that I actually knew very little.

During the German occupation of Paris, Adolf Hitler could not get to the top of the Eiffel tower, as the Elevator drive was deliberately damaged by the French. The Fuhrer refused to go up on foot.

Today is Iwo Jima Day.  On this day in history, on February 19th in 1945, which was 74 years ago today, the major battle began in which the United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.  Let's take a moment to reflect on the bravery and sacrifices of those who gave to protect our freedoms.  Here is my watercolor painting tribute to the Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima:  https://www.redbubble.com/people/mattstarr/works/32562263-raising-the-flag-at-iwo-jima

IN FRANCE

Darling:

Received another letter from you today and was glad to learn that my Rome cards reached home. I saw practically everything depicted on those cards, however, as I mentioned before, I am sure I did not appreciate the full significance of places of interest.

Also glad to learn you could spend some of those hot nights in the cool mountains. I’ve been hearing and reading references to the unusual hot spells in the news, and of course my mother complains about it in her letters.

Darling, will you please send me a box of canned food – special items we do not get in our army chow – huh, please?

You asked some time ago about a Xmas present. The only think I can think about is a flexible metal band for my watch, if it is available – I have no way of knowing what is or is not available on the market today.

Business as usual, and life seems normal, here in this section of France. Street cards running, water, gas, electricity, trucks and sedans on the roads – I imagine these people here enjoy as normal a life as in the States, with the exception that the Germans regularly requisitioned all meats and most people had very little meat in the past couple of years. The thing that strikes me sort of peculiar is the hairdress of the French girls. It seems some of them wear it 5 or 6 inches high and apparently wear “rats” if that is the proper nomenclature; Also they wear plenty of make-up.

I don’t know why, but for the past few days, I’ve been thinking of “Fair Week”, are they conducting the “Farmers” Fair in Allentown this year?

I love you Darling [UNREADABLE] and lope my next trip is “f ou”. WOODY

Some snaps from my recent visit to @hullcollegiate where I performed my current show #inloyalcompany to ages 7-15. It’s such an honour to be able to take my great uncle Arthur’s story into schools and make these kids aware of an area of history they often simple don’t know about. Thanks for having my @hullcollegiate Can’t wait to do more school shows! .

Rest in peace, George Mendonsa. The sailor from the famous photo in Times Square has passed away, at the age of 95. .

I took this photo in San Diego, a few years ago, after a visit to the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum. Remembering all those who served, including my grandfather.

The series Traces of World War II –  Piwna Street, today’s Cracow.
During the second world war, Krakow was not as damaged as other cities in Poland, but here was also a lot going on. In some places traces of shelling are still visible.

Cykl „Ślady II Wojny Światowej” – ulica Piwna, dzisiejszy Kraków.
W czasie drugiej wojny światowej Kraków nie został tak zniszczony jak inne miasta w Polsce, ale i tutaj dużo się działo. W niektórych miejscach ślady ostrzału są nadal widoczne.

Silvestr se narodil 20. října 1919 jako čtvrté a poslední dítě v rodině vémyslického hospodáře Sylvestra Němce. Jeho předky v přímé linii se mi podařilo dohledat sedm generací zpět, k Václavu Němcovi narozenému kolem roku 1655 v několik kilometrů vzdálených Horních Kounicích. Silvestrova babička Marie rozená Sklenská pak pocházela z vémyslického rodu a jejím nejstarším známým přímým předkem je Pavel Ripl narozený kolem roku 1580, který byl ve Vémyslicích svého času dokonce starostou. 
Na nedatovaném snímku je Silvestrova máma Františka s jeho třemi staršími sourozenci Františkem, Júlií a mojí babičkou Františkou - to je ta nejmenší.

Silvestr was born on 20th October 1919 as a fourth and last child in the family of a Vemyslice farmer Sylvestr Nemec. I succeeded in tracing his direct ancestors seven generations back, down to Vaclav Nemec who was born around 1655 in Horni Kounice, a small town several kilometres distant from Vemyslice. Silvestr’s grandmother Marie Sklensky was a descendant of an old local family. Her oldest known direct ancestor was Pavel Ripl born around 1580, who back in his times even served as a mayor of Vemyslice.

The photograph which is not dated captures Silvestr’s mother Frantiska and his three older siblings: Frantisek, Julie and my grandmother Frantiska - she is the smallest one.

В октябре 1941 года приказом НКО СССР была введена красноармейская книжка как документ, удостоверяющий личность красноармейца и младшего командира. Отправка на фронт красноармейцев и младших командиров без красноармейских книжек категорически запрещалась. Офицерам в качестве личных документов выдавались удостоверения личности. Именно эти документы изымались у убитых и умерших от ран солдат и офицеров и передавались в штаб части или лечебного учреждения, где на их основании составлялись списки безвозвратных потерь личного состава. Именно из-за такого подхода в ноябре 1942 года вышел приказ НКО № 376 «О снятии медальонов со снабжения Красной Армии». Это привело к увеличению числа пропавших без вести военнослужащих из-за невозможности установления личности погибшего.

Although it doesn't look like much of anything at all now, having been torn up and left like this, the garden and especially the flagpole there, was the reason for my visit to the empty former Petersham Public School. 
The flagpole is a memorial to a slightly gruesome day in Sydney history, one that I did not know about before, The day World War II came to Petersham. On Wednesday 2 May 1945 at approximately 11.30am a Mosquito aircraft of the Royal Air Force 618 Squadron exploded in the skies over Petersham. Flight Lieutenant David George Rochford, RAF Volunteer Reserve and Leading Aircraftman Charles Broughton Boydell, Royal Australian Air Force, were killed in the crash. Neither man’s parachute opened at a sufficient height for them to survive.

The body of Flight Lieutenant Rochford fell into the playground of Petersham Public School. Leading Aircraftman Boydell’s body was recovered from the top of a shed over 100 metres away in the Petersham railway goods yard.

Blazing sections of the wooden aircraft were scattered across Petersham and as far away as Catherine Street in Leichhardt. Houses were set alight in Trafalgar Street, The Avenue, Searl Street and Railway Street, Petersham. Just a few minutes before the body of the pilot, who was entangled in an open parachute, crashed into the bitumen with the cockpit and loaded machine-guns, pupils at Petersham Practice School had left the parade ground in front of the building. In 1966 a memorial garden was dedicated to Flight Lieutenant Rochford and Leading Aircraftman Boydell in the grounds of what was then Petersham Girls High School. A plaque, silky oak trees and a flagpole were placed there in their memory. 
I have included a picture I found online of what the memorial garden looked like BEFORE it was torn up like when I stopped by.

The US sailor who was photographed kissing a woman in Times Square while celebrating the end of World War Two has died.

The black and white image of George Mendonsa and Greta Friedman, best known as The Kiss, is one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century.

Mr Mendonsa has died aged 95 after having a seizure on Sunday, his daughter Sharon Molleur told The Providence Journal daily newspaper.

The photograph of him kissing Ms Friedman, a dental assistant who was dressed in a nurse's uniform, was captured on V-J Day on 14 August 1945.

Mr Mendonsa gripped and kissed Ms Friedman despite having never met her before.

Although revered as a representation of joy at the end of the war, it has also been described as capturing the moment of a sexual assault.

Ms Friedman herself said she did not view it that way, but in a 2005 interview with the Veteran History Project confirmed that it wasn't her choice to be kissed.

Бернард Лоу Монтгомери, Главнокомандующий британскими оккупационными войсками в Германии, награжден орденом «Победа» за вклад в общую победу над фашизмом.

Награждение Монтгомери проходило в штабе Американо-английских экспедиционных сил в Европе во Франкфурте-на-Майне в один день с Эйзенхауэром.

В начальный период Второй мировой войны Монтгомери командовал 3-й пехотной дивизией, участвовал в боях во Франции и Бельгии. После эвакуации английских войск из Дюнкерка командовал 5-м, 12-м корпусами и Юго-Восточным военным округом на территории Великобритании.

В августе 1942 г. принял командование 8-й английской армией в Северной Африке. В 1943 г. был назначен командующим 21-й группой союзных армий. В 1944 г. ему было присвоено звание фельдмаршала. В 1945 г. назначен главнокомандующим британскими оккупационными войсками в Германии.

Войска под его командованием успешно действовали в сражении под Эль-Аламейном, в Египте, Ливии, Тунисе, в высадке на Сицилии, в Италии, в Нормандской и Фалезской операциях, в боевых действиях во Франции, Бельгии, Нидерландах и Германии.

Награжден высшими орденами Великобритании, орденами иностранных государств, в том числе орденом Суворова I степени.

@andy_acker @goldman_zachs_ " let's get this out on a tray" other 2 soldiers: "Nhice"

4 December 1941 
HMS Prince of Wales arriving at Sembawang Naval Base, Singapore.

The King George V-class 14in gun Battleship was sunk by Japanese aircraft torpedoes six days later on 10 December 1941 with great loss of life .

December 8th, at 1735 hours Force Z comprising the PRINCE OF WALES (Flag CinC Eastern Fleet), REPULSE and the destroyers ELECTRA, EXPRESS, TENDOS and HMAS VAMPIRE sailed from the Sembawang naval dockyard, out into the South China Sea and set course to pass east of the Anamba Islands and thence northward.

December 10th at 1114 hours the PRINCE OF WALES opened fire on nine Japanese 'Nell' torpedo bombers, from the Genzan group, coming in to attack from port side. One attacker turned away to attack the REPULSE and the remaining eight dropped their torpedoes from ranges between 1650 and 650 yards and at a height of approximately 100 feet. Seven of the torpedoes were avoided but the eighth torpedo, which was a 45cm diameter Type 91 with a 150kg Type 97 warhead, struck her port quarter.
At 1144 hours the PRINCE OF WALES received, one torpedo hit on the port quarter. Following which she listed 11½ degrees to port and speed was reduced to 15 knots. The PRINCE OF WALES was never properly under control again. Five 5.25in turrets were put out of action. A second hit was reported at the time between turrets P3 and P4, but subsequent examinations of the wreck have disproved this. One aircraft was claimed shot down crashing into the sea on starboard side.

At 1320 hours the PRINCE OF WALES sank capsizing to port, in position 3-33-36N, 104-28-42E. Out of her crew of 1612 men; 20 officers, 280 sailors and 27 marines were lost. Among the dead were Admiral Sir Tom Phillips, CinC of the Eastern Fleet, and the CO of the PRINCE OF WALES Captain John C. Leach.
The destroyers EXPRESS, ELECTRA and VAMPIRE picked up 90 officers and 1195 crew and marines, the majority being picked up by the EXPRESS.  #ww2tanks #ww2incolor #ww2aircraft #worldwar #worldwar2 #worldwar2incolor #worldwar2history #worldwar2photos #worldwar2historyandinstagram #worldwartwo #worldwartwohistory #worldwartwoincolor #worldwartwoveterans #color #colorful #colorized #colorization #colors

@pep_phidiola Amazing photo

Moj djed, prof. Zlatko Šir ( @kazaliste_komedija )na fotografiji koja se koristila za omot jedne od njegovih ploča. Kako bi @talajicd rekao - 'gospon Šir', da ga se ne bi pobrkalo s mojim ocem koji je 'čika Šir'. Mislim da su ovo jako zanimljivi dijelovi zagrebačke povijesti. .

American soldiers belonging to the 16th infantry regiment, 1st Infantry Division, charge through the treacherous waters of D-Day. With lots of equipment this added a lot more stress on them. They were also more vulnerable to get shot. “GET TO THE SEA WALL”! We will be making a full D-Day post soon.
