Sample text

Experience with Curtiss JN­2s in the expedition to Mexico in 1916 'indicated that airplanes had a sufficient tendency to fall unaided out of the sky' so that an air defense arm hardly seemed to be urgent, but the nature of the war in Europe quickly dispelled such ideas [8 ].  Eight machine­gun batteries were credited with having downed 41 [11].  The Coast Artillery pressed for modern equipment and secured from the Ordnance Department in 1925 a satisfactory plan, which came to nought because of the budget restrictions of the 1930s.

National Archives photograph 80­G­700311.  The success of XAF in the fleet exercises in early 1939 put the Navy on a strong radar development program. National Archives photograph 80­G­700710.  There are various published versions of this flight, each with abundant error. Determining the true course of events and the reason for the failure to observe the radar that followed the ship during the entire flight have engaged the detective instincts of four investigators in Britain and Germany. The airship broke through the clouds in the vicinity of Aberdeen, causing people to call the Dyce Station of the Auxiliary Air Force from which a plane with a photographer took off and made this photograph.

Eight machine­gun batteries were credited with having downed 41 [11].  The Coast Artillery pressed for modern equipment and secured from the Ordnance Department in 1925 a satisfactory plan, which came to nought because of the budget restrictions of the 1930s. The Coast Artillery School at Fort Monroe emphasized technical quality.  As part of a general strengthening of the arm a 37 mm automatic gun, which had been under development for more than a decade, was to replace machine guns [12]. 50 inch machine guns for close defense was rejected for the 40 mm Bofors and the 20 mm Oerlikon [13].
