Wasp

Post by John Wiggins » Sun Jun 14, 2020 6:52 pm

I have been scouring the IWM for more images of the UC and came across these
photos taken in 1945 of an installation of a flame thrower in a UC . Known as Wasp I know of
at least three versions.

20 odd years ago you could have installed a water jet in one of those and used it to squirt people at shows :lol:

I doubt that would go down well nowadays :roll: :cry:

"...mop up any survivors". Not much left of them, I guess. :shock:

Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again. Then burned.

I like it!
