Belgian Rattlesnake-The Lewis Gun was the child of a world torn apart by warfare. What do you know about the first machine gun ever to be fired from an aircraft? This is a weapon that functioned reliably under horrible trench warfare conditions in The Great War, was mounted to aircraft and Navy vessels through World War II, earned a fearsome nickname, and saw service with well over a dozen countries, yet seems largely forgotten today.

Douglas SBD Dauntless (Scout/Dive Bomber) The Dauntless was the main carrier-based dive bomber used by the U.S. Navy during the first two years of the war. It became famous for its steep bombing dives that resulted in the sinking of four Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway. The U.S. Marines used their Dauntlesses from land bases, and at Guadalcanal used them to sink numerous Japanese ships attempting to land troops on the island.
