An easy-to-build airsoft “knee mortar” from WW2

Ever the fan of indirect airsoft fire, Thumpy found this home-made “knee” mortar on YouTube….

Remember kiddies, this is cool in airsoft…but the Japanese did NOT actually fire the “knee” mortar from their leg…they fired it from the ground like a regular mortar…and when G.I’s tried it, several ended up with broken legs for their misguided efforts!

Hope that SCOUTTHEDOGGIE checks this one out for his WW-Two buds in Scotland!

Props to Y’Tuber jtprouty LINK HERE for the fine work!
