English term or phrase: DANE / CLANE GUNS
Bonjour. Dans un article de presse :
" Brigands with bows, arrows, spears and DANE / CLANE GUNS were attacking and killing (...) ".
Il 'sagit d'un document manuscrit alors c'est soit DANE soit CLANE. Je n'ai rien trouver sur le LGDT.
Merci d'avance pour vos réponses.

La voici: Fusils danois. Avec des fusils danois, des lances, des flèches, des massues et des machettes, et avec le soutien logistique et la puissance de feu supérieure des soldats nigérians qui parfois opéraient à partir du Libéria, la milice a donné du fil à retordre aux rebelles.
