Unusual German Small Arms and Infantry Weapons of World War

I was looking for info on the Fliegerfaust B (Luftfaust B) and came across this site. Some pretty weird baddie weapons.

the picture there described "7.92mm Mauser STG-45 prototypes and in the field" is actually a fake picture. A guy on one of the re-enactment forums made up that picture with photoshop. I believe it was the Axis History forum. Also the picture of the SS officer with the so called mp3008 is actually a Mk2 sten with the mag port in the turned down position

That's really great, like it isn't difficult enough trying to get the facts. We have a bunch of morons running around creating fakes. Always figured "living history" history was full of it.

Ha.Ha, "Donkeyfaust! Gotta love that! Some neat stuff, but i'm sure more than a few have been photoshopped.

Looking through those pictures I could not help but think of the scene in movie “The Desert Fox” where Hitler is screaming at Rommel that he has in his mind a new weapon, and another and another ….
