Human being... Sadistic and genious creature, who find out words like: kill, destroy and invented something what revolutionized whole human kind... Weapons!

Allright people, don't freak out. I just writed that in impression by art of mind biggrin.gif

Well lets get to business! My personal favourite weapon is absolutely the DP-27. Well ofcourse Suomi KP M31 is a legend, but Degtjarev is just so damn cool! Think about it: 47 round "pan mag", cartridge 7.62x54R, fire rate 500-600rpm, muzzle velocity 840 m/s, more than just reliable, accurate and cheap to produce!

Here's compulsory video about this great WWII weapon at shooting range:

Last seconds of that video, russian woman almost gets injured because placing hand under the camming lug operator ohmy.gif

My faves are all the bolt action rifles, with iron sights; and of course Suomi SMG (if I just could ever get to own an actual Suomi SMG sad.gif ).

Bolt action rifles IMO are comparable to swords, they're a Man's weapon unlike the rediculous girly-man things they have nowadays with their sissy-nanny eotechs/FLIR/whatever sights.. tongue.gif

People seem to be really orientated on gunpowder weapons, thus I say M/31 Suomi SMG for elegance and legendary reputation of it, plus it really looks good on my wall (deactivated thou) tongue.gif
M/20-30 Pystykorva is also nice, but I am a sucker for bolt action, they have the feeling of action in them.

However I also find something majestic on Longbow. Still I must say my favorite weapon of all time is Katana, if something is fine tuned for killing and warfare its Katana, besides same elegance that I see on Suomi KP I find times ten here.

Gotta agree here, modern warfare has taken fairness of the "game" out of it, also it seems that modern wars are aimed only against notably weaker nations rolleyes.gif

There really is lots of plastic and complicate electronics in basic infantry weapons nowadays. Sounds like real toyarmy party.

But I would say one more great weapon inspired me by von Rundstedts Katana story. It is cold but still so burning steel when used as a weapon, best surviving tool where ever you are. It's finnish made legendary puukko. All you have to do, is keep it as sharp as possible and it won't never let you down! Oh and ofcourse you have to know how to use it... I almost cut my thumb off with my sissipuukko couple of summers ago redface1.gif

Puukko that I got from AUK was so blunt that I can't draw blood even when I grip on blade hard as I can... At least it is nice memorial from those times. Did however order another one during my service -jätkänvuolu from Marttiini- which was better, but it arrived on very last day of my service so not much joy from that (especially since I have no use for it on my current assignment).

Not a big thing. I didn't even remember that you could post in this part of forum as Guest.

As a armored crewman, I almost forgot to add this weapon to this topic. This video is made by one of my friend from Charlie platoon. Footage has been taken during our conscript service in 2009-2010.

Here you go and please, enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C3U2l8HsIw
