Operation Black Death

Thought i'd take a look at an episode of this while flicking through issues of Battle.
This one's from March 1977 and, boy, its grim.
Not only do we have scenes that could be out of The Godfather or Once Upon A Time In America (Nelson hanging onto the side of the car and spraying the driver with machine gun fire at point blank range), a guy being dissolved in acid, but the art matches it too.
Can't remember Pat Wright being this gritty in earlier adventures of Mike Nelson, but boy he does here.
Look at the two top right panels on the second page, along with the final one of same.
Dead hard or what? You'd wouldn't mess with this guy, not exactly your clean cut British hero.
