Biafrran war veteran touring a journalist around one of Biaffran inventions...Armoured Scorpion Bazooka Tank equipped with anti tank gun with ability to rotate 360 degrees.
Biafran Red Devil. Considered one of the greatest feats of the Biafrran Research and Production Unit. What made this Armoured tank a feat was it was designed like a armoured personal carrier tank but equipped with hidden high powered anti tank guns with ability to shoot targets with precision from all angles at 360 degrees. How Biaffran Biafrran Research and Production Unit got to know about this esoteric technology in 1960s when it was only known by a few western powers...TILL THIS DAY REMAINS A MYSTERY!
Biafrran Armoured Personnel Carrier Tank. Compare this rare circular tank design with the alien saucer-shaped spacecraft in the link below. Were the Biaffran Research and Production Unit trying to do some reverse engineering? Remember this was designed and manufactured in 1960s when the whole of Africa was in technological darkness.
Biafrran Grenade Launcher used to launch the dreaded grenade "Ogbunigwe” (mass killer when interpreted in English)
Another of Biafrran tank. This white lady can't believe what she is seeing.
Biafrran Armoured Car usually equipped with high powered machine guns or simply used as a reconnaissance armoured vehicle.
With all this metal scraps yet biafra still woefully lost the war, which simply makes technology not the sole means of winning a country backed by Britain and Soviet union.
If Biafra had built more of Airborne vehicles and rockets that could haul payloads and hit with precision, targets that are more than 100 km away in dodan barracks, Kano, Kaduna etc possibly the war could have been prolonged, if biafra had mastered the art and technology of building under ground tunnels with fish ponds , poultry farms, water purification plants, refined pharmaceutical plants , nuclear power stations, nuclear arsenals, nuclear powered submarines that could blow up all the naval ships of the invaders, biafra would definitely have won the war after just 6 days.
Biafrran heavily crafted crude oil refining column called Biafran pot. Pay attention to the precision of the welds and metal quality. Over Hundreds of these were manufactured, along with series of piping manifolds, brought refined oil...diesel, kerosene, fuel and aviation fuel for military, government, public and private use. Mere looking at it, it may seem like a simple design, wait until you visit the museum and physically inspect it to appreciate the work of these geniuses. All of the valves you see are a function of distillation process that separates the crude into derivative constituent fuels; each valve streaming out diesel, kerosene, fuel, e.t.c.
Ojukwu Bunker in Umuahia. When western delegates visited this bunker after the war, they were shocked that blacks could build such a sophisticated bunker with air control and ventilation systems as far back as 1960s...a technology only known to top western countries at the time. These Biiiafran engineers were way ahead of their time!
The civil war was not only a secession war, it was a war of technology; to stop Biiiafra technology prowess and ascendence before it's too late!
