Haha... That's good Michael. And I who "accused" you for being a great fan of http://www.corbis.com :wink: Well, it takes one to know one... :D I just didn't know that they had a "junior" branch of the HIAG :shock:

So yes, the answer is SS-Standartenführer d. R. Otto Skorzeny who died in Madrid, Spain, on July 5, 1975. And the picture source was as previously mentioned http://www.corbis.com


Your turn, Michael!

It is was not a Stg.W44, neither a "Volkssturmwaffe", with less Ammunition, only a few came on hand, at the very last Service?

Name this Handgun....???

@ Krollspell...

Skorzeny, a "Hero", I do not know, high decorated, for sure, a "HardAss",he got his very own Reason, to live in Spain.

Interested . about the SS, Skorzeny, the "Duce", but not a Fan, sorry!

Nordwest,

About the Volksturm-waffe, the central part of the weapon looks very similar to the Sten Mk-III. It seemed like the German industry copied Britain in the weapon-making process. Do you have any information on how many were manufactured, effectiveness, anything like that?

A little Hint: The little "Soldier" in the feldgrau Uniform, in his later Lifetime, he became a worldwide very well known Politician, with very much Reputation, not even in Germany...

Rossel, I am not able, to tell you something about this Weapon, I do not know the Type, neither the Caliber, the only Information is Mauser and 1944/1945.

Der Rest ist Schweigen...? :?
