Default Question about tanks

Do groups have the same BB cannons as the Combat WW II war ships ? Would interest me if they meet in Clayton , N Y or Flemington, N J areas .
Thank you.

Hi Cyclops
I used to model ships & a friend was into the BB armed ships.
From memory the ships used steel BB's - possibly .177 inch to penetrate thin balsa, so the ships would sink.
The Airsoft tanks use 6mm airsoft BB's, which tend to bounce off (& break surface detail).
So not really the same at all.
