Hello all. I am skimming through vintage catalogs of Waffen Revue and stumbled across something rather peculiar. In issue 73, dated 1989, on page 113-116, is what is described as an "anti-paratrooper" all-purpose gun. From what I could translate, the designer and manufacturer are unknown. That and the gun was rigorously tested at Floyd Bennett Airfield, perhaps with the intention to market it to the Army-Air Corps; there is even a mention of it possibly being offered to the British. To me, it looks like a riot-gun or grenade launcher turned revolver. It is also said to fire tear gas, smoke, "1-Pound splinter grenades" and flares, with the caliber being 1 inch or 3.4 cm. What do you all think? Does anybody know who made this thing, or what became of it?
There are three sorts of people; those who are alive, those who are dead, and those who are at sea.
