ik denk dat er nog hééééél veel wapens zijn die nog nergens aan te pas zijn gekomen van in de WOII. Zoveel wapens die ze maar een aantal keer gemaakt hebben en dan afgevoerd zijn wegens té duur/moeilijk in aanmaak, niet precies niet krachtig genoeg,... er zijn heus nog veel wapens/tanks/vliegtuigen/boten/... die ik jammergenoeg nog niet gezien heb
Lisle Commando Rifle:
A modified Lee Enfield rifle, the De Lisle is one of the first successful carbines made with an extremely effective suppressor. The suppressor, which dominates the rifle from back to muzzle, measures two inches in diameter, and provides enough space for the gasses used when firing. It fires modified 9mm pistol rounds, and the ejected round would fall into the magazine, which had a velvet-lined compartment to stop the sound of spent bullets hitting the ground. It is so quiet that moving the bolt to chamber the next round makes more sound than firing a round. The De Lisle was only manufactured in small numbers and was exclusive to Special Forces.
Although it sounds like it comes straight out of a sci-fi flick, the Allies researched the degaussing of ships quite heavily during WW2. The primary goal was to render the ship undetectable, and invisible, from magnetically fused undersea mines and torpedoes. The degaussing of a ship involved the generation of a powerful electromagnetic field onboard. The Canadian and British Royal navies spent large amounts of time doing tests and research on degaussing — in fact, the conduits from the degaussing system built in the HMS Belfast in London, can still be seen today. Many people also believe the electromagnetic degaussing attempt on the USS Engstorm might have influenced the story of the famous “Philidelphia Experiment.”

WunderWaffe 1 - Vampire Vision
The Sturmgewehr 44 was the first ever assault rifle, similar to the modern M-16 and AK-47. The ZG 1229, also known by the code name Vampir, was an infra-red sight designed so that this rifle could be used by snipers at night. It was first used in combat in the last months of the war and weighed about five pounds, but was also connected to a thirty pound battery support pack, strapped to the soldier’s back.
German Super-Heavy Tanks
German engineers worked on a number of designs for super-heavy tanks and the Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus was the heaviest model of which a working prototype was made during the war. This tank weighed in at around 180 tonnes and this ended up being its principal problem. No engine was powerful enough to allow the tank to achieve the desired speed of 20 km/h, with only 13km/h being reached and that under ideal conditions. It was also too heavy to cross bridges. However, because the tank stood relatively high off the ground, it could actually ford deep streams and for deeper rivers was able to go underwater and drive along the bottom. However, to do this it had to be partnered with another tank, which supplied the electrical power through a cable. Amazingly, a long snorkel, allowing the crossing tank to submerge to a depth of 45 feet, fed air to the submerged tank’s crew.
