In 1945, Tony Stein would take part in the bloody amphibious landing at Iwo Jima.
He was one of only a handful of Marines to be issued with the new experimental modified ‘Stinger’ machine gun.

Everybody: "Rambo is so unrealistic movie"
i can feel the amarican radiating off that weapon
But… we do stuff like this in MURICA all the time…
I made a gun from 3 GUNS
The first LMG
Good man this Japanese sniper.
Looks like South park.
He had a lot in common with that other Marine Corps MOH recipient John Basilone……War heroes of the same caliber you might say.
soo…basically the stinger is an abomination of three guns
They should rename this channel "Simpleton History"
"No example of the stinger is known to be existing today" — me looking to the right into the recommended section: "USMC Stinger Mashine Gun: Medal of Honor on Iwo Jima" from the channel "Forgotten weapons" pops up
Simple history, you lied to me!
Who else was kinda hoping for a triple barrelled machine gun
Is the AA stinger missile named after this gun? Just curious.
MEET THE ENGINEER
now that's a very orky thing to do as well
lol i use to live in mad river california.
As soon as Stein started shooting the on the beach landing the enemy soldiers became storm troopers from Star Wars
This is the case of more or less every other AK47 in existence today in Afghanistan.
Well that just sounds like America with extra steps
