Alexander the Great

phalanx2

Hi…Time Traveler here. I’m about to go back in time when ALEXANDER THE GREAT was alive. He was from Macedonia and inherited the throne from his father, Phillip, in 336 BC.

Phillip wanted to conquer the whole known world but died before he could. Alexander followed in his footsteps. He conquered Greece, Egypt, India and the areas all around. Alexander was a great leader but pretty brutal at times. He had never lost a battle in his entire life.

He died while in a riverboat. Bugs bit him and he got sick and died.

We still use his strategies today. One of his strategies is his men form a box of spears so the enemy can’t see what they’re doing. Another is when they form a rank of shields so the enemy can’t get through.

See you later…or sooner? I don’t know what time I’ll be in, so I guess “bye” will work.

Mustang

1964
1964

Hey guys, Machine Maestro here with what is probably America’s most loved muscle car – the Mustang! Mustangs began production on April 7, 1964 and are still being made today! In 1964 the car almost tripled the number of sales Ford thought it would make. Since then, the car has undergone many upgrades and is in its sixth stage of production. I think the Mustang is a fantastic car now and back in 1964.

The GAU-8 Avenger

ZyU6QAJThe GAU-8 Avenger is a mind-blowing machine gun designed to shoot armor-piercing depleted uranium shells. It is mounted on the A-10 Thunderbolt, a plane often known as the “tank killer” because of its high-powered machine guns that can take out ground vehicles. The Avenger can fire at a staggering speed of 70 bullets per second, and each bullet can punch through 5 cars! It has extremely forceful recoil, which is why it is mounted slightly off-center. As the barrel rotates, it is necessary that the firing barrel is on the side of the gun aligned with the center of the plane. Overall the GAU-8 Avenger is very deadly!
