Baron Manfred von Richthofen - the Red Baron - pose for a photograph with his Pour le Mérite, ca. 1917.
Today 101 years ago, on April 21, 1918, the legendary German fighter pilot Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron was shot in action and killed.
Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen was born near Breslau in modern-day Poland (then German Empire) on May 2, 1892.
When war broke out in 1914 Manfred initially served as cavalry reconnaissance on both the Western and the Eastern Fronts. When the war turned into trench stalemate, turning old cavalry tactics outdated, his regiment was dismounted, instead serving as dispatch runners and telephone operators.
Bored of not participating in direct combat he joined the German Air Service in May 1915, being fascinated by the modern airplanes.
After meeting German flying ace Oswald Boelcke, who recruited him to his newly formed Jasta 2 Fighter Squadron, Richthofen became a skilled pilot and scored his first kill on September 17, 1916.
After his 16th kill in January 1917 he was awarded the Pour le Mérite, the highest German military honor. The same month Richthofen took control of the Jasta 11 Fighter Squadron containing some elite German fighter pilots. He then took the step of painting his aircraft red to stand out.
He was soon given the nickname "The Red Baron" by both the Germans and the Allies, being a national hero of the former and a feared but respected enemy of the latter. The fellow pilots in the Jasta 11 soon painted their aircrafts too, giving the fighter squadron the nickname the Flying Circus.
In April 1917, known as Bloody April to the British, Richthofen and his Jasta 11 especially demonstrated their excellence. Richthofen proved to be a brilliant leader, tactician, teacher and fighter pilot.
Richthofen sustained a serious head injury on July 6, 1917 in an encounter with British planes while flying over Flanders. He managed to land his plane safely behind German lines, spending the next weeks recovering. Against doctor's orders he returned to service on July 25, 1917.
Pariah hawk flame spit namesake Satan
Half the shit he sayin contradict his statements
Like these Conservatives want a safe space to place races;
Stupid ass racists
My chalky ass carved my craft playing Balderdash
Say some shit to make ya daughter laugh then hauled off all of the stash
Pardon the dash gotcha girl putty in his grasp
Like your girl leave fools bloody on the pads
Money in the stash P’s nuts leave honey breathing fast
Have the whole damn nation grieving when he passed
I don’t need your beats bitch I make my own
Flee quick when I take the throne
He’ll sing (Hellsing) slow leave thick stakes in ya dome
Cuz ya bloodsuckas tried to vampire the flow. @jacquesfehr@elkingthemc@blackthought@theroots#hiphop#bars#rap#music#poetry#freestyle#lyrics#battle#fire

|Marder II Sd.Kfz. 132 1942-45|
During the African Campaign, the German Panzer divisions were supplied with various kinds of tanks, assault guns, and tank destroyers. And in the early stages of this campaign the Germans were equipped with Panzer Is, Panzer IIs, Panzer IIIs and a small number of Panzer IVs. In 1942, the Panzer I and II's became out of date and were only used as reconnaissance tanks. To make further use of them, Germans started to use their chassis as bases for various conversions such as a tank destroyer. Besides creating brand new tanks and enhancing the Panzer IV. The Germans quickly decided to create a new breed of tank-hunters, called (Marder). Which was nicknamed the “Kohlenklau” or (Coal Thief). With its new gun, the crew would operate behind the shield. However, due to its’ height, the Marder II was under-protected. Weighing in at around 11 tons. The overall height of this powerful machine made it an easy target, and the 15 mm side protection didn't help either. By 1944, the crew was reduced to only two men, which meant that the vehicle had to stop and the driver would then help the gunner. Some of these anti tank guns managed to fight in Tunisia in 1943, but were mainly used in Russia until the end of 1944. Where they would gradually be phased out or destroyed. There are only four Marder II’s that still remain to this day. -The design of this Lego Marder II was done by mj louder on Flickr.
