    Sometimes I get too pedantic. I realized it's M1919 right away, but looking at specific versions I noticed some details were off, so I went looking for various foreign derivates and found that. It's a rather interesting piece.

    We've had enough machineguns lately, so I have something bigger for you...although I have another unusual machinegun piece ready too.

    Fairly certain that's a Rheinbote (V4). A German late war, short ballistic missile.

    Damn, that did not last long. Over to you. Sorry, we've been having this back and forth too much, so I can't rep you.

    Edit: As usual for me, a little history lesson. Rheinbote was intended to supplement conventional artillery over longer distances. However, it turned out to be quite a failure, due to low payload, accuracy and tendency to dig in before exploding. Over 200 were built, and most were fired at Antwerp in late stage of war, but caused only minor damage

    They've shot quite a few from the Netherlands during the late war. I believe our national military museum had a information segment of them. Something like that if my mind isn't abandoning me now.
    Next one shouldn't be too hard.

    BrahMos-II hypersonic cruise missile.
    (Not too easy, considering almost all hypersonic cruise missiles look so similar, yet easier than the frequent obscure hundred year old designs.)

    Well, it must then be the similar 3M22 Zircon hypersonic cruise missile.

    That it is indeed

    It's rather amusing that the second image was also used in articles about Boeing X-51 Waverider.

    TBH I think it IS X-51, if you look closely, both Zircon and BrahMos have proportionally longer tapered section of the nose. Otherwise it all looks pretty much the same.

    Now that is interesting! I however searched for the 3M22 Zircon so I'll take that guess.

    Sure, just double-check the entries next time to avoid ambiguity such as this. I've scrapped a few entries too because I wasn't 100% sure they were of correct item.

    Sometimes it feels like nobody is guessing. So I'll pop this one too.

    McDonnell XP-67, sometimes called Bat or Moonbat.

    In 1940, USAAF made request for high speed, high altitude long range interceptor, encouraging the unusual designs. XP-67 was one of aircraft designed for this request. After several reworks, a prototype was manufactured, but suffered from poor engine performance and cooling problems. When it finally entered flight testing in 1944, it displayed problematic stall behavior. When the prototype was destroyed in engine fire, the project was scrapped.

    I was wondering how the plane got adequate cooling for its engines and the answer seems it didn't get adequate cooling. Apparently, the XP-67 was the first plane McDonnell designed, before then it was just an aircraft parts supplier.

    Next up, you'll need to be as specific as possible, for reason obvious once you find it and read a bit about it.

    Is it a Curtiss XP-62?

    Close but no cigar.

    Consider that a first, and hopefully the only hint.
