"You gotta understand my love of the P-51
Mustang. With a Merlin 12 cylinder 1,590hp
engine, and six .50 Cal machine guns, no radar,
no muffler, it basically ripped the wings off

Patrick, P-51's never engaged Stukas-they were
phased out after the battle of Britain and the P-
51D didn't come out until 1943-44-by then the
Stukas dead as the Do-do.

And for our Sniper Pro, the Scene in Saving
Private Ryan when the sniper got whacked by the
shot through the scope was Ripped off by an
Incident that Happened by USMC Sgt. Carlos
Hathcock where he went 1 on 1 with a VC Sniper
and dropped him like a bad habit with the same
shot. He took his SKS as a souvenir but his CO
snaked it from him. I believed he died about 2
years ago. He does hold the record for the
longest kill (About 2,500 yards) by putting his
scope on a .50 Cal Machine gun and dropped a VC
soldier running supplies on hi Bicycle.

Always do yer homework,
