X clearly is the superior because of the fule vaoir fumes coming in via the wing ventilation detonating the ammo box because of a chemical reaction with the ammo box's armour and the methane by the pilot farting thus caousing a single .30 cal to detonate the enitre notrthen hemisphere. check out you tube and goole if you do not believe me.

Not sure this is the best thread I have seen opened lately Daiichidoku. I'll let it run for now but don't be surprised if another Moderator locks it. Looks a bit like spam or troll and I think I know you better than that.

Yes, of course we mustn't let a thread drift off the original topic, must we...

its not, nor meant to be the best, sir

frustrated by the derailing of mossie vs b17s and do not wish to see it inevitably get locked over nonsense prevailing there now, best for it to come over here to be locked

Do you really think that discussing the morality of area bombing is 'nonsense'? Or discussing whether the Nazis have particular responsibility for what happened in WWII?

If you want to start a topic where ethical and political considerations are unlikely to intrude, don't pick one involving bombers. Endless debates about meaningless technical minutiae may appeal to some, but the reality of war tends to get forgotten in them.

If anything, it is the '.50 cal' topics that are nonsensical, or at least insignificant if taken at face value.

So this thread is supposed to be like a sacrificial anode on a ship. Creative, but sadly I don't think a forum (least not this one) works like that.
