The US Army worked to develop grenades the same size and weight as baseballs in order to take advantage of American’s familiarity with the sport. In 1973, the US Army started testing possible designs for an anti-tank grenade. Commanders in Europe had asked for some sort of ordnance for destroying tanks in close quarters. If Warsaw Pact troops had invaded, NATO soldiers could have found themselves taking on armored vehicles in cities and towns.

The prototype inserted the tank-busting charge inside a hollowed-out Nerf football. Parker Brothers, which introduced the lightweight, foam balls in 1969, doesn’t appear to have been actively involved in the project. While the grenade football may have weighed the same as a normal football, it still wasn’t the same. As regular footballs are hollow inside, the weight is distributed evenly, allowing for consistent throws. The prototype, however, was filled with explosive elements, which gave the ball a wild and unpredictable flight. The Army testers found that the “ball", with its weight in the center, was unstable in flight and “did not work as envisioned”, according to the documentation. The project was cancelled and Parker Brothers was never officially involved.

War Relics pt. lll

An abandoned Leopard 1 main battle tank situated in waters along the shore of the island of Vlieland off the coast of the Netherlands. The tank was being used as target practice at the CSK tank gunnery range on the Vliehors area of the island. The Leopard 1 has been in service since 1965 and originated in West Germany. It is still operated today by at least 6 countries. This shot gives a great view down the 19 foot 105mm Royal Ordnance L7 main gun.

1920s lingerie patterns. So many choices. So little free time. :(. Sigh. #nfs

A German self propelled gun camouflages itself amongst the ruins of an Italian town, 1943. A burnt out Sherman can be seen in the background.
