clearly any German machine gun. My logic is that if 90 odd German soldiers cant hit Clint Eastwood from 10 feet away something must have been pretty bad with them

What about that stupid rocket plane. It launched into the air, had 5 minutes of fuel then had to glide back to earth...hundreds were made, only shot down 2 bombers and both of those were on test runs. Throwing small children at them would have been more effective.

I say it was the combination of American day boming with B-17 flying fortresses and British night bombing with Avro Landcasters. It forced the Germans to be on the alert around the clock, which obviously is tiresome, and caused destruction to German infrastructure, production and research.

worst as in rubbish, not worst as in effect on humanity, though I like the instinct to think about people instead of machines Nord.

piat wasn't so bad. it did the job, just not very well.

I think we need a weapon of such BADNESS that it fecked up the war.

how about the Tirpitz? just sat around all war in a harbour. Arguably the best made battleship of the second world war and never made it out to port.

Nobody said it was the worst weapon as in rubbish.

Tirpitz? Didn't that one get sunked in a Norweigan fjord? Or was it some other ship?

the jagdtiger. Yeah no tank could hurt it, but then it couldn't cross any bridges either and let's face it, there's one every 30-50 miles in Europe.

NO bridges? Are you sure? It probably couldn't pass wooden bridges but good bridges should hold I think.
