What an interesting fact!

What an interesting fact!

RaPharoh

Fun fact: due to Goering's aforementioned large circumference, it is theorised that if the Luftwaffe had found a way to drop him on London, they would've won the Battle of Britain because F=ma and that's a lot of mass.

"Wake up, sir, it's time for your kinetic bombardment!"


MaxRavenclaw

that explains why the nazis gave up on the atom bomb. they already had a wmd

Excellent bot.


BryNX_714

Forget London this would've just sunk Britain and the neighboring islands combined


RaPharoh

The resulting tsunami would've reached the US West coast, causing chaos and inundated Western Europe, the Atlantic Wall may have had to have been built in the Alps.


The_Arizona_Ranger

Furthermore, due to its light construction, Admiral Yamamoto got shredded by a bunch of Lockheed P-38s.


Thegoodthebadandaman

I'm gonna be real with you not many aircraft can really shrug off getting shot at by multiple 50 cal and 20mm guns.


Intheierestellar

Japan should've just asked for Wunderwaffe blueprints and they would have won the Pacific war 🙄


BryNX_714

Yeah they could've beat America if they were sent an example of the Messerschmitt Me-69 Fartenflieger to teach them


Intheierestellar

If the Japanese had the Jagdsturmpanthergeschutzpoopenfartenwagen auf. V D they could've easily taken Los Angeles


AgentHimalayan

Yeah defending Iwo Jima would have been a piece of cake if they had used some tigers, damn Germany not sharing


Thomas_633_Mk2

RIP to your Betty but im built different


upstartgiant

I dunno, those crappy planes that crippled the Bismarck didn't seem to mind being shot


Thegoodthebadandaman

There's a difference between getting shot at by a battleship with questionable AA capabilities vs multiple fighter aircraft. Unless you have multiple reports of Swordfishes tanking gunfire from enemy fighters without issues.


upstartgiant

It seems to me that the same things that made swordfish effective in the face of Bismarck would advantage them vs fighters as well. They're so slow that enemy pilots would have trouble not overshooting them and their light armor would serve them better than heavy armor vs the enemy's machine guns. The only real difference is that the swordfish were not equipped with air-to-air weapons so they'd be ineffective in a dogfight on that basis.


SorryScratch2755

all's fair in love and war.(crashing sucks)


igoryst

B-17 also died to 20mm armed fighter planes, your point?


The_Arizona_Ranger

My point is that the fucker got what he deserved


igoryst

Oh yeah absolutely, he might have been a brilliant admiral, but he paid for his aggression


WaterDrinker911

That would’ve happened to any aircraft tbh.


Terran_Dominion

Impossible. How did they measure it?


Vladimir_Chrootin

Stellar parallax


BryNX_714

One Betty, one fuel stop, and one really long measuring tape


SlayerMkI

Must. Resist. Ur mom. Joke. Ahhh! By putting him next to your mom and seeing he was only a quarter of her size.

BlitzPlease172

Guess that's why they go back to manufacturing a cars.


The_Konigstiger

And some dope fighter jets too. I love the F-1, F-2, and T-2.


BryNX_714

Not to mention the T-4 trainer jet and the X-2 Shinshin stealth testbed


Longsheep

The Shinshin is sadly just a concept model. They are buying F-35 and collaborating with the Brits for the next fighter (BAE Tempest based).


Kamenev_Drang

\*Meyer's


BryNX_714

I'm not actually aware of the whole Goering Myer thing. What is the context of it?


amoniumhydroxid

He said something like "If only one enemy bomber reaches the Ruhr, you may call me Mayer"


BryNX_714

Ahahaha. Excellent
