Ingram Model 5
Gordon Ingram returned to the US after WWII with the belief that the simplest firearms were the most reliable. In 1946, he designed his own submachine gun, which he dubbed the “Model 5” (not because it was his fifth design, but to avoid confusion with the US Army’s M1, M2, M3 and to allow for an M4). Ingram struck a deal with the Lightning Arms Co., who managed to interest the Nicaraguan government with the design, but this amounted to nothing. In the end, only a single prototype was ever made. Here, in the only known photograph of the Model 5, a young woman (who I believe is Hope Portocarrero) demonstrates the simplicity of the Model 5.

Polish SU-85M, Germany, 1945After the development of more powerful self-propelled gun SU-100 due to the delay of the release of the 100-mm armor-piercing projectiles and termination of production of the armor case for the SU-85 from September to December 1944 produced a transitional variant of the SU-85M.In fact, he was a SU-100 with 85-mm gun D-5C. From the original version of the SU-85 modernized SU-85M differed more powerful frontal armour, increased ammo capacity and the presence of the commander’s cupola with five observation slits. Just was constructed 315 of such machines.
