POTD: Big guns in Dillingen

    Big, heavy guns in Dillingen, Germany, in Photo Of The Day here at TFB.

    In a traditional manner, the gunmen open the program on the Danube river for the “Day of the German Bundeswehr”. The Danube river (Donau) is Europe’s second longest river, after the Volga. It is located in Central and Eastern Europe and passes Dillingen.

    Notice that the soldiers keep their hands over their ears, but not the shooters.


    For some reason, I think of AC/DC and their For Those About to Rock We Salute You“.

    Tag der Bundeswehr 2019 (Day of the German Bundeswehr). After the opening salute, the day is filled with activities, and some 270,000 people visited the various stations in the area.
