Vroom! Vroom! BOOM! The Scooter of Doom

This is something I happened across this past weekend, but I held off and then was beaten to the punch by Hell in a Handbasket.

After World War II, there was little money for defense spending while the nations of Europe rebuilt their industry and society. When there was some cash to spend, one had to be creative to stretch it as far as possible. The French probably accomplished the most astounding example of that with the ACMA Troupes Aeról Portées Mle. 56. Deployed with their airborne forces, this was essentially a militarized Vespa scooter outfitted with a 75mm recoilless rifle.
