This is an open book quiz. After WW1, what was one of the main reasons that US Ordnance went after a semiautomatic rifle to be standard issue to US troops ?
Watch out on this one, it could be loaded!
The answer to this quiz is that new-fangled thing called the Airplane. It was to give the individual soldier some type of firepower to keep them, airplanes, from getting too close to strafing on moving columns of troops. Also to protect "wagon trains"? That's what Ordnace says.
