This image was on the front cover of a 1943 issue of Der Adler propaganda magazine, minus the UFO of course.
Totally not edited or anything
U sure its not a fake?
If it is real the most logical explanation is he shot down some unidentified flying object and just marked it down as a pop culture UFO since that’s the simplest way to explain it
Maybe, but im still going to search if this UFO logo was used in the 40’s (and if not what was it)
Good point didn’t even think if the logo was used at this point in time
Do not even know if there was a logo lol
Idk probably not tho lol
I couldn’t find anything;(
Damn, at least you looked. More research then I did lol
Haha yes i least
I made a typo didn’t I..in my defence I’m very sleep deprived
Sure, but it’s fake.
Or, ya know, Photoshop
Of corse it’s real🤫🙄🤦🏿 FFS!
U never know until u prove it
obviously this is 1 very veteran and bad ass 88 flak gun crew !
You can see the UFO emblem isn’t aligned with the other logos. Also the stripes marking the UFO kill count are different from all the other ones.
I just realized this is fake :/
All good. 9gag is indeed a gag site. But it’s a cheeky pic to have in here either way :)
Cant believe people cant distinguish between real and fake.
That was from shortly after the time the crew looted a cache of vodka from the Russians while fighting on the eastern front.
I'm guessing bunkers
Most probably static positions or something like that
It’s fake as another redditor said, dont spread this around as real guys.
Yeah, shouldn’t mods remove this? Or do they let obvious jokes pass?
If I was in a tank and I saw this aiming towards me I would either just jump out or I would put the tank in reverse and let the infantry deal with it cuz looking at their kill score they are clearly experienced
It also says it has aircraft kills press x to doubt
It's a a tank mounted 8,8cm. So basically a heavy FlAK on tracks.
Oo i thought it could have been an 88 but i didnt think it was
It is funny.
That you are debating this even funnier.
What is the image above the ufo? From top to bottom: It’s plane - tanks - ???? - UFO
It’s fake, but the other one means bunkers
This is fake
“They called me a mad man.”
Maybe that is why they have never stopped to say hello.
