Thanks to Staghounds for the invaluable help researching this episode! The French Munition Lancée à la Main Pierre is one of the little-known French infantry weapons of the Great War. Originally developed as a man-portable version of the Munition Trébuchet Bloc de Rocher 1873, it would be progressively simplified and used in large numbers throughout World War One. It would prove so successful that both German and Russian copies were made, the Großessteinstück Leutezuwerfen Art 18 and Разве ты не хочешь взять в руки рок-товарища партии.

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
