i have just finished watching this anime (with english subtitles) and think it is an AWESOME anime!!!

Does Anyone have a favourite witch in the series?

Type 99

Is not that gun. I may not know much about firearms, but the 99 has a curved magazine on the top, and this has a drum on the bottom. Its much different. 20:00, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

The weapon you refer to, the Type 99 machine gun, is essentially a Type 96 light machine gun modified to accept the more powerful 7.7x58mm Type 99 ammunition. The weapon depicted in Strike Witches looks like a Japanese Navy Type 99 "machine cannon," which is indeed fed from a drum as depicted and fires a far larger round (note that in the image of the assorted characters, Yoshika Miyafuji and Mio Sakumoto are noted as carrying "13mm Type 99"). However, I think the weapon being used in this anime is a fabrication; my research indicates the Type 99 cannon fired 20mm rounds, not 13mm. Hexslinger 11:26, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

MG... 42?

The saddle drums on the MG42 resemble MG15 mags, although the weapon otherwise appears to be an MG42. I don't think the 42 could feed from a mag like that, as it only took belts from the left side. Should a note of that be made in the article?


I hope nobody minds, but I plan on doing some heavy editing to this article. I'll keep the images, but I'll be adding text, page links, and stock images of the weapons so the article complies with IMFDB standards. -- K 15:17, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks to whoever corrected me and provided the image for the Type 99! :) -- K 22:59, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Something I just realised

Shouldn't we technically be removing all the stuff related to the Movie from the main page? Since while it's been out on home video in Japan for a while it's only just been licensed for American release, and according to the "no bootlegs" rule the American release date is the benchmark.
