Those things on the end of some gun barrels - what do they do?
Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Lindybeige

A mystery that lasted for many years with me - what is the purpose of those strange things on the end of some, but far from all, gun barrels? It turns out that they are called muzzle brakes, and that I can ramble for rather a long time about them, if I let myself get sidelined enough.

Kit tanks by Airfix, Matchbox, Fujimi, and Esci.
