Top 1000 Military Pictures

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

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,

Tools of the trade; A Navy SEAL’s weapon case

The week long events generally are much much more milsim than your average weekend games. You’ll have things like a proper command structure, rules of engagement, limitations on magazine size and/or semi-only rules, multiple factions including civilians and missions to carry out. It isn’t

I didn’t say the AK would malfunction because of the grip. The M16/M4 System will (Mostly double feeds and stovepiping) It’s just general practice that you don’t use the magazine as a foregrip. There are many reasons for this. The first (and biggest reason)

KSK Kommando Spezialkräfte

As a few have been requesting it I´ll try my best and translate!( I know it might not be perfect, kinda hart to translate some technical terms) Left to right, top to bottm it goes: * **”Breacher:”** Function: If there´s an entrance that needs

Russian Spetsnaz in Woodland Setting

My point is that the backpack hip-belt jams the pistol into his hipbone, and it would likely get pretty uncomfortable quite quickly. I usually keep a small knife clipped inside the hip of my pants, but I have to put it somewhere else when
