The armor that saved Europe! – Handcrafted winged Hussar armor.

In 1683, Poland’s Army, led by its famed Hussar cavalrymen, defeated the Turks at the Siege of Vienna. This decisive battle stopped the Ottoman advance, in essence saving Europe. Military historians attribute the Poles’s success, in part, to their superior armor and weaponry. This awesome winged Hussar’s armor has been produced in the centuries-old tradition, hand-hammered on a wooden stump and lashed together with leather.

He certainly doesn’t have one of these!

Armor-piercing missiles were built during the Cold War for the M1-A1 Abrams tank (America’s primary battle tank). Dubbed “tank busters,” they were designed to take out heavily armored Warsaw Pact tanks on the European battlefield. Tens of thousands of these missiles were destroyed under the Department of Defense’s “crush rule.” By our wits, some luck and a connection in the Pentagon, we rescued a few practice rounds.
