Whatever its just an opinion.
Thanks Jerry,good on ya mate.
I think there may have been two military versions used in WW2
It's only wiki info,not totally reliable,
R3D-1 Military version of the DC-5 built for the Navy as 16-seat personnel carriers, three were produced. Douglas #606 crashed at Mines Field, June 1, 1940 -- #607 retired January 1946 and #608, believed to have been used briefly by Gen. MacArthur; retired January 1945
R3D-2 Military version of the DC-5 built for the US Marine Corps as 22-seat paratrooper version, four were produced. Douglas #609 crashed in Jan. 1942 on island off Australian coast under enemy submarine fire. Stricken from inventory January 31, 1942. # 610, 611 and 612 retired October 1946
The KLM DC5'S ended up in Australia I believe after the fall of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) in 1942 and were pressed into RAAF service.
What is this beast.
Designation and name please.
M65 recoilless nuclear rifle, also known as the 'Davy Crockett'?
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Half way there mate.Davy Crocket is correct.
I will take any one of two designations but M65 is not one of them.
The M65 "Atomic Annie" was 240mm artillery piece.
And yes Mo it was a nuclear recoiless weapon.And a very scary one at that.
