Vintage Saturday: Japanese Holdouts on Mars!

Japanese troops with a Type 11 LMG at the Battle of Zaoyang Yichang, 1940
Someone alert the writers of Iron Sky! The Curiosity rover has just sent back this photo of what appear to be Japanese soldiers still holding out on Mars

 

Okay, it’s actually from 1940, at the Battle of Zaoyang Yichang in central China. Note the funky hopper-fed Type 11 LMG.
