Sorry for the tangent but you just filled in a blank for me. I have family that was in the OSS in WW2 (Greeks) they told me a story where they were working there way up a hill under fire to deliver a Browning 50. I never googled it but now I get to see why it was worth the risk. One guy got shot and they had to go back and help him. If they had the Isetta (maybe with some armor) it may have been easier :)

The 50 Cal is a pretty serious weapon. A military vet friend told me that the 50 cal round can take your skin off just by passing too close, without hitting the target.

Taking into account Isetta's technical details and forgetting for a moment how such equipment would need to be operated once driving, this "special retrofit" allows to expand maximum speed of the car in any direction.

It's like a Pulse Maneuver Engine but can help overtaking another car (symbolically and literally).

I would prefer another lethal equipment for my dream Isetta however.
