    Bofors me up.

    Unsurprisingly, Aberdeen said no, finding it a fundamentally unsuitable carriage for 40mm pom-poms, but... What a glorious place to work that corner of Maryland must have sometimes been...
    'What about TWO Bofors mounted above one another?!'
    'Yeah, give it a whirl... but we don't like it... still, yeah, have a go... You never know.'

    I'm half a Marylander. My grandfather worked for a while at Edgewood Arsenal, right down the road from Aberdeen.

    I'm not sure what this is. I think it might be a T9 but I thought T9s never went into production. There are quite a few of them in "The Tanks are Coming"



    The Tanks Are Coming (1941) - Reference View - IMDb

    Great short. Lots original color (Technicolor) film of M2 mediums, Stuarts, White Scout Cars with skate-rail mounts, M2 halftracks and jeeps. Also lots of training footage of 37 mm crews.

    When you recognise Queen Mary before the vehicle... :unsure:
    Citroen conversion, presumably.

    The hunt is now on for an image of QM smiling.
    May take a while.

    Citroen-Kegresse indeed. Which looks to have been polished within an inch of its life.
    Nice to use our own site to confirm;

    Wonder how many the British acquired.
    Entirely possible 'the ones in those photographs'.

    Really changes her appearance. She looks like QE2 when she smiles.

    Just occurred that's exactly the sort of question I'd have asked Vintage Wargaming about.
