What Izzit, con't.

If you have no idea what this is about - click here and get caught up.

We actually already have a winner – Owen had it right his first pass, and provided his answer in that slightly pedantic, try-to-cover-all-the-bases fashion the Armorer is prone to.

The rest of you have been going down some rat-holes. It is NOT related to what you see in this picture – which is the baseplate of a Japanese Knee Mortar, and the left and center (with a booster not seen here) are the kinds of rounds you’d see fired from that. You can ignore that Mills Bomb on the right - this pic was used for a different post some time ago.

Nope, nothing you see here

Nor is it related to this type of implementation of this type of weapon (the one illustrated being a Brit 2inch mortar) – though it relates to a weapon of that class in employment.

No, conceptually, it’s more related to this type of weapon in implementation, if not in purpose.

Lastly – the Sekrit of most of these teasers – clues (or outright answers) to these things can be found in the photo galleries of the Imperial Arsenal of Doom.

That’s all the hints you're getting. Email your answers to

From home *and* work! At Internet Cafes! We think The BMG Trophy would look good on an Arsenal Bookshelf... but the only way *that's* gonna happen is if I steal it - unless you guys get really busy and start doing what Bill's been doing- borrowing other people's computers... of course, that would be wrong.
