...or Z1!

Well, a month has passed without any real activity on "The official AHF post-WW2 quiz thread".
So giving other posters the chance I will answer this one and leave it open.

Hi Waleed,

I have the Leberecht Maass as sunk in 1940, so I guess I have misinterpreted your clue?

Misinterpretation... or misleading! :D
My clue was:
Funny enough she would carry the same designation (name/call sign) as
an earlier boat from the same country during WWII
The designation Z1 was the common factor.

A WWI Admiral, a WWII German Destroyer and the Ex-WWII US destroyer in post war
German service as ... The Z1 :lol:

Here it's called quizzing, on feldgrau.net it's called riddling... :wink:

I'll decline for now as I'm still trying to figure out the
Spanish marked chopper posted by the Edge :cry:

Will be back!

Hints: First one designed/made in this country (1954). Some "French connection" involved, but nothing to do with its name (associating to the cartoon character "Pepe le Pew" :lol: )

We'll be waiting for you! :D

Could it be Goodyear XAO-3 'Inflatoplane' ? :roll: (in "packed" mode)

"Conair" implies something used for jailbrake... maybe something connected with Berlin wall?

Berlin wall, "jail-brake" or escape... all kind of correct according to the source I found.

My source calls it the ONR-CIA Pneumatic (Rubber) Airplane.
Shuffling the letters I got CONAIR :lol:

I found another article: http://davidszondy.com/future/Flight/rubber_plane.htm 8-)

Next question: what model? (If you know THAT, the 'user' part of question is superfluous :D )

Hint: it is a rifle/granade launcher combination :wink:

Yes. :D It's nice to see that old veterans (Thomson as "M-41" and MG-42 as "M-56") could still "kick ass".
