The classic in me wants a Finnish Lahti L-39 20mm anti-tank rifle.





As for what the OP means screw the .50 BMG.... I have no clue....

Not many left in the world that still operates.
I have had the pleassure of being able to hold one of the few that´s still around.
Nice weapon, nothing I would want to carry around though.
Heavy SOB.

Did you notice that in the lower photo, the loader appears to have the magazine held backwards?

Maybe it's the angle of the shot?
Or another "woops, the book's upside down" moment.

I dont think its held backwards its just a bad quality image.

And a 20mm can no longer be described as a tank-killer by the way. unless your enemy is using some very very old tanks.

I don't think so, I can clearly discern each of the loaders individual fingers, even something as small as the buckle on the gunner's helmet strap.

The much larger magazine is quite clear, and the rear of the mag is clearly a lot shorter than the front.

However, it is of little consequence, just my observation.

I think all three guys in the photo are dead by now too..... so we'll never know.

Not so sure 5,56.
A few of my grandfathers buddies are still around.

However you twist and turn it, these men knew enough about weaponry to stop the red army dead in it´s tracks.
I reckon they´d hardly reload their weapons with the magazines backwards.
If this is a Rambo photo for the media, so be it.

If he wants more stopping power... he can drop the .50cal and mod an RPG or some anti tank weapon to use it against troops ^^ that would be awesome...
