    Default Blacker's PIATs

    Hi everyone,

    Coloursergeants find promted me to post this.

    Pics of two of the spigot prototypes found in Colonel Blacker's old cellar a few years ago. These are designed to fire 3 in mortar rounds- it was a coworker who took these protoypes apart and finalized the PIAT design.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Glad you like 'em, here are the other six;

    2 baby bombards,
    2 'airborne' Piats.
    2 petards- quite different from the final one.

    Thought you might also enjoy the strikes on the T30 HMC gun armour in the background- mixture of AP and AT.

    Jim.
