The shown knife is a bit mislabeled.

It´s original designation is Fallschirm-Kappmesser - not a pilot knife. Issued to airborne troops, this gravityknife has the big internal blade and a long foldout spike on the other end.

Have fun.

It´s better now  ;) - in the next pic a german WW2 Airborne/Fallschirmjäger is shown (and the knife is placed to his foots).  :D

But the museums description is a little bit "off" - might be due to slight differencies in dialects between Countries using a variation of the german language.

Have fun.

Great pics! :salute:  That massive rifle is a 13.2x92mm Mauser T-Gewehr, one of the first dedicated anti-tank weapons.  The cutaway is a Mannlicher M.95 straight-pull.  And the pair of fighters are Saabs, a J29 Tunnan and a J35 Draken. :tu:

A very interesting museum I toured many years ago. Particularly enjoyed the large cut-away model of the WWI battleship.

Also brought back painful memories. Sent my photos of the Switzerland-Austria trip in to a mail-order film processing service. They promptly lost them. Sent me someone's Latin American photos instead. Never did get it straightened out.   :ahhh

Colt offered a German-made version some years back as a search-and rescue knife. Problem is most states regard gravity knives as in the same category as switchblades.

VERY cool. :tu:  The Viribus Unitis was sunk by Italian frogmen in a human torpedo attack at the end of World War I.

Moan. Too many pics.


Just kidding for real though I've never seen so many guns/cannons in one place.

Too bad they don't make modern tank/motorcycles.

Yep, an early version of the concept.. The Italian Navy has a long history of special operations.  The British Chariot was a copy of the Italian maiale human torpedo.

Not particularly. I did get about half of my photos from the trip. Sent the Latin photos back with a description of mine. They sent me the Latin photos again. Repeated, sent it 'attention manager'. Got the Latin photos for the third time. Bundled everything up into one of their pre-paid envelopes along with a very nasty note and told them to go to He!!. Would have taped it to a brick if I'd had a brick handy.

Too bad they don't make modern tank/motorcycles.

The tracked motorcycle was called a Kettenkrad. Compared to a VW Kubelwagon, it was more expensive, required far more maintenance, was slower, noisier, poorer gas milage, less load capacity. And its cross-country performance was only slightly better.

Outside of sno-cats you don't see many military tracked vehicles under 10 tons.
