Sturmgewehr 44

It’s pretty much the only single thing that *might* have changed the outcome, but it’s still pretty unlikely that it would’ve staved off a German defeat. Let’s say they had an atomic program basically analogous to the Manhattan Project. That would’ve left them with

M60 overlooking ocean waters

It sucks. What the photo doesn’t show is the hours of wire-brushing, CLPing, and coating to bring the weapon to a “serviceable” condition. On average… a week of the gun out in the sea spray means time for a full scrubbing. Next time I’m

An afghan sergeant

That’s an E-8, Company Sgt Maj. I do believe that this picture is taken next to the soccer field at Pol-i-Charki garrison where the Consolidated Fielding Centre of the ANA holds graduation parades for the new ANA kandaks before they are deployed to their

Ukrainian Kraz Cougar after a seperatist ambush

Yes, I understand Kraz is Ukrainian. Ukraine, in recent months, has increased procurement of military hardware (well, primarily seconds the Iraqi military rejected — in the case of the [BTR-4, 2S1 Gvozdika, & T-64BM BULAT](https://imgur.com/a/DIOjw)). And thats just it. Its small numbers, relatively low

The radar has been described by Lt. Gen Trey Obering (director of MDA) as being able to track an object the size of a baseball over San Francisco in California from the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, approximately 2,900 miles away. Ladies and gentlemen, the SBX-1

So a picture of this appeared on my FB feed, and I thought of the same problem as a slight complication to the standard horizon problem. Imagine the Earth as a sphere of radius r centered about the origin. The SBX-1 lives at a

24 AH-64D Longbow Apache attack helicopters with the 4th Aerial Reconnaissance Battalion (Attack), 2nd Aviation Regiment, 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade conduct a mass landing at Camp Humphreys, South Korea on Apr. 18.

How has Army doctrine on use of the Apaches changed since the [failure of the “deep strike” during the Iraq War](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_attack_on_Karbala)? My understanding is that the AH-64s failed in a mission that they were designed for during the Cold War—attacking enemy armor behind the

The first nuclear explosion, codenamed Trinity, 16 milliseconds after detonation. July 16, 1945.

I went to Trinity in 2002. [It’s kinda surreal to know what happened there](http://www.wsmr.army.mil/PAO/Trinity/Pages/default.aspx). I’ve stood and touched the [obelisk](http://warbirdsandairshows.com/images/Historic%20Sites/trinitysite2008/monument-107w-1.jpg) that now sits in the middle of the remaining tower leg stubs. The casement that they brought out for [entombing the bomb](http://www.atomicarchive.com/History/trinity/images/SB42.jpg) just in-case

Range time. M1A and 700 .308

just guessing, the r700 a bolt action is inherently more precise than a semi auto. thats not to say a good semi cant beat a bolt, but its a pretty good rule of thumb. The issue is with repetition. A semi just has so

Officers from NYPD’s 48th Precinct in 1971

I couldn’t find any good history information on the net, but I think that style of winter blouse was used into the 1980s. In all my recent visits to NYC, I’ve never seen an officer with that or even the leather jacket the other

Lightning Strikes Twice

Lets remember that P-38 had a ton of problems too. First flight in 1939, the prototype budget went from $163,000 to $761,000 in 17 months. Prototype was lost 14 days after first flight on landing after an engine failed. There were then manufacturing problems,

M4 Block 1.5 Clone

**Upper:** – Colt 14.5″ Barrel – KAC RAS – Insight Dual Switch – EOTech 553 (SU-231) **Lower:** – Colt CAR Stock – Shaved A2 Grip If it’s not really listed it’s probably milspec part or not really that important to note. Snagged a lot

Mossberg 590A1

This is what I’m having a struggle with. I love the concept of these shotgun cards, but I’m worried about the sturdiness. Like if I go to grab shells, how much play or wobbling do you get? I know Mesa Tactical is pricey, but
