Answer 1) The sniper version of the M14 (an evolution of the M1 Garand used in WW2) was used by the USMC until 1964 or 1967 (depending on which source you consult), after which they used the specially made Remington M40.

Guns normally required that each gun be loaded with black powder a patch and a ball. a tamping rod forced everything in place in the barrel. By the time WWI came around rapid-fire guns like the machine gun, auto loader pistols and multi…
By far the tanks and aircraft. It made the buildings collapse. Also the advances in rifles. More advanced assault rifles were issued like the semi automatic M1 Garand or the Thompson SMG. Actually the Q is a bit misleading: Yes the weapons were better, more destructive, but in fact it is the ammunition itself that makes the difference. The explosive power was literally more explosive & better delivered to the target because of the improvement…

i dont know when were tanks used in world war 1 The first tanks were used in 1915, and continued to be used off-and-on until the end of the war. It was a new kind of warfare with many technical and tactical problems which were not reolved before the war ended.
