Wanted to let the stalwart denizens here know the vid below has hi-res crystal clear footage, including glorious high speed camera material, of a Lahti ATR being fired with period ammunition. The Lahti was a weapon which gave the Russian tanks fits during the Winter War and did good work later on. Unfortunately, speaking as a iMac owner, the prey this time is an edge on working iMac. The results will blow your mind. Sure did a number on mine. But don't take my word for it... Regards, John Kettler
This guy and his lady have a YouTube channel on which they shoot high powered weapons at perfectly good Apple computers and peripherals. By perfectly good, I mean working. He's firing a Finnish Army Lahti ATR using period ammunition. I'm indigo with envy, since I'm well past green! This is more than mere target practice on an edge on iMac just like mine, though, for he's got a high speed camera recording the festivities. Some pretty stunning things happen during the cyber demolition in terms of wholly unexpected projectile behavior upon striking the target. Talking jaw dropping stuff. Regards, John Kettler
While looking for the Finnish war film "1944: The Final Defence," I came across this documentary segment. The description says: The last one of the 88 Finnish wartime movies by the Finnish Defence Forces. This one was actually never released nor approved for public performance as the war had come to its end in Sept 1944. This film depicts the operation of the Finnish Artillery which is in the words of the film "world-renowned for its accuracy". Note: the Petäjä-Nenonen method that "virtualized" a single observer into instantly controlling the fire of an unlimited number of real-life batteries at different locations was classified at the time, even to the Germans.The young soldier boy "Seppo" in the clip is real, his name is Nestori Lindström and he was 13 years old in the clip. I read he is now deceased. Those of you interested in theFinnish end of WW II may find the http://sa-kuva.fi searchable data base of over 200K Finnish WW II pics and films useful.
