Quote from: Techno on 14 November 2019, 07:16:14 AMAnswer me this, Chums.I often watch old WWII series on the Yesterday channel.....and there's one thing that my eyes simply refuse to believe.The size of the bore on 'big guns'.One of the progs recently was showing old footage of 88mm guns/Anti aircraft guns in action.....Then we went to a museum where they showed a restored (?) example of said gun.My eyes simply could not accept that 'the hole in the end' was 88mm in diameter.It looked 60mm at the absolute most.Is it just a trick of perspective ?..... seeing said gun on a TV screen, where you don't really get the idea of the overall size of the gun....Or do 'they' alter the end of the barrel so there would be no way of ever using the gun, in anger, again ?This has been bugging me for some time...So feedback would be appreciated.Cheers - Phil
