Any chance I get to have a pretty girl populating my blog I will take.
One of my favorites, the BM-21 multiple rocket launcher affectionately known by its crews as Katyusha (little Katy) was quite the effective rocket artillery piece for the Soviets. The Germans being on the receiving end of such demoralizing and devastating saturation bombardments dubbed it Stalin's Organ (Stalinorgel in German). Obviously not a term of endearment.
For the Soviet's, it fulfilled their criteria of cheap to build and devastatingly shocking weapons platform. What's not to like?
