V-22 Osprey: A Remarkable Aircraft

v-22 osprey The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tilt-rotor aircraft.  It has the capability for vertical takeoff and landing, as well as short takeoff and landing.  The V-22 is designed to merge the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long range, high speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft. The United States Marines and United States Air Force have been using this incredible aircraft since 2007 after spending 18 years in testing and receiving design modifications.  It has one 3-bladed proprotor and a turboprop engine mounted on each wingtip.  During takeoff and landing, the V-22 typically operates like a helicopter.  Once it’s airborne, it flies like a more fuel efficient, higher speed turboprop aircraft.

M50 Reising Submachine Gun

M50 Reising Submachine Gun The M50 Reising was a submachine gun that was manufactured and used during WWII.  It was primarily used by the Navy, Marines, and the Coast Guard, although some M50s were shipped to the allied forces to fight against the Axis powers. This weapon was designed as a compact lightweight semi-automatic carbine that was also capable of fully automatic fire.  When on fully-automatic mode, the M50 could fire 750 rounds per minute.  It was issued to the military as an alternative to the Thompson submachine gun, which was heavier and much more expensive. The M50 was quite accurate due to its better stock fit and intricate closed bolt, delayed blowback design.  However, the firepower was limited due to the 20-round capacity of its largest magazine. The ... Read more
