Weapons Quiz - May 1943 The Leatherneck magazine

Recommended Posts

Military ordnance is definately not my forte, so I found this quiz from the May 1943 issue of The Leatherneck to be an interesting display of the types of weapons in use during mid-WWII. Most of the questions aren't that hard, but I wasn't familiar with a couple of the guns. How well can you do? ;)

Big Joe: What kind of deal?
Crapgame: A DEAL, deal! Maybe the guy's a Republican. "Business is business," right?

I think #14 is "C"?

 

#14 is A, a wire stocked Reising .45 cal Submachine gun


Freedom isnt free... it must be paid for. Too often it is paid for by the blood of patriots. For those who have paid their share, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

The water cooled in the first group is not a .30 caliber, it's a .50 caliber. The .50 caliber is not one of the options though.....

Does anyone know if any WWII Army publication had similar quizzes? (such as Yank, Stars & Stripes, and/or Infantry Journal)


"A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week." - Gen. George S. Patton

"The fact that battle is a horrifying spectacle must make us take war more seriously, but not provide an excuse for gradually blunting our swords in the name of humanity. Sooner or later someone will come along with a sharp sword and hack off our arms." - Carl von Clausewitz

Note that the Lewis on n.15 is the aircraft version without barrel jacket and high capacity drum. I wonder how barrel could be cooled in that Navy mounting.
