Every D-day forum has had one of these threads as some point or another, I thought it was about time for PPMs turn #Tongue So usual rules apply, post pic of tank/plane/ship (within D-days time scope) & whoever guesses it right first gets to post the next one etc, etc.

I'll start things off with this...

Which unit? I see 11 E1 and one MTNK.

I say the conscript is the unit you're searching for. Very Happy

I'm not sure if that deserves a ROFL or a face-palm...

I guess unit is a bit of an ambiguous title, but it was that or "tank/plane/ship" which felt a bit superfluous.

Early T family or the Iosif Stalin tank (IS-2). Great answer LKO made me smile.

It's not an early "T" or IS-2

Changed the title BTW, LKO's post was haunting me >.<

Indeed it is. And it alone (Plus its sister Akron) makes me wish balloons could be aircraft carriers in YR.

When the USS Macon was christened on March 11, 1933, she was the most sophisticated of the Navy’s lighter-than-air (LTA) fleet. The Macon exhibited the highest expression of naval LTA technology during her short career. At 785 feet in length, the airship’s size captured American fascination during flyovers of U.S. communities as chronicled in numerous advertisements, articles, and newsreels. The dramatic loss of the Macon and her sister ship, the Akron, within two years of each other contributed to the cancellation of the Navy’s rigid airship program. The archeological remains of the USS Macon lie off California’s Big Sur coast in NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The site also contains the remains of four of the airship’s squadron of small Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk scout aircraft which the Macon carried in an internal hangar bay.



Mind you, I live really close to there. Read about it in my middle school history class, several years ago. :]

It's a Hungarian assault gun. The Zrinyi II, with a 105mm howitzer. At first I thought it was Italian SPG, but the 5 return rollers made me look elsewhere.

This design is post-WW2 but within D-Day's time frame.

Ah your good, its the Payen 22. After the Germans invaded France they captured lots of prototype aircraft & then took them back to Germany for testing, that's why it has Luftwaffe markings.

I went and read up about it in detail again, apparently it was mostly destroyed (so I guess that it never went past prototype stage). Does that preclude it from appearing in D-Day?




Here's something awful, and probably easy to guess:

The only thing that precludes most units from being in D-day is not not having enough time to make them!

Wasn't long ago that we talked about that tank #Tongue I'll See if anyone else knows it...

Yar, but patriotism really forces me to post it rather than the Semple tank since the Semple already made its way into D-Day. #Tongue
