I believe that the entire Legion has a slower marching pace than everyone else. They date to Pre-Napoleonic times and Napoleon sped the pace up to the current marching rate. STOLE THIS OFF WIKIPEDIA: Also notable is the marching pace of the Foreign Legion.
Top 1000 Military Pictures
A bit of googling and I found this article has an interview with the guy in the picture and a bit of background: http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?aid=/20120627/cityandregion/120629981/1079 tl’dr – they were in Bradley IFVs advancing onto an airbase after artillery had hit it, and a different unit
You aren’t thinking about it properly. When shooting from the air into water, the bullet is already traveling at it’s fastest speed (in the case of a standard 5.56 US military round, roughly 3,000 ft/s, almost 3x the speed of sound) when it encounters
I see alliance thrown around like candy and it is not a good thing. China has no military defense pacts with other recognized states, because it has a policy of not having them. It has security agreements, economic agreements, but no obligations to be
>A U.S. Army paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team fires his M4 carbine at insurgents during a firefight June 30, 2012, Ghazni Province, Afghanistan. The vehicle he is using for cover is a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. (U.S. Army
You know nothing about the Iranian regime, or their practice of lying to trick their enemies. I’ll educate you, so take your hands out of your pants for just a few seconds and listen: They are practicing something called *taqyia*. They are lying to
Sadly the routines and training is mainly for the infantry units. However the experienced tankers quickly share what parts of the body sees the biggest problems over time. Mounting a tank a couple 1000 times takes its toll on the knees. So we do
So the issue is that it’s always a joke. You may be a good guy, and I hope so are most of the people in this sub. But for the idiot dudes who don’t know better, these jokes are an affirmation of their shitty
So, I used the last 40 minuts to write a lengthy response, internet explorer crashed, all is gone. So I will simplify this even more now: But I will begin with this: I am no expert, I do not now all about air operations,
It’s not impossible to hold your base that way if you catch a front kick, it’s a basic catch that is used in Muay Thai with one hand on the toes and the other on the knee with the foot braced against your chest.
You’re the first person to ask me why rather than just make stupid comments to me. The first and biggest fallacy when calling Dresden a war crime is that it’s always put forward that Allied Command bombed Dresden for no reason and that it
Perfect spheres only happen in mathematics, nothing is perfect in engineering. Seriously though? Molecular imperfections in the alloy of the bomb case, picosecond timing differences in the explosive triggers used to fire it, varying density gradients in the explosive charges, the list goes on.
Being retarded had nothing to do with it. It’s an incredibly inflexible way to fight battles. There is a reason the Roman legions changed to the maniple system and there is a reason why Greece and Macedonia were conquered by Romans. Put simply you
CAS is not a single platform. CAS is a system of systems working together to provide support for a warfighter on the ground. As has been mentioned above, fast jets and bombers have been performing CAS for the past decade and a half and
I think you’re slightly misunderstanding 43-Band55-10’s point (and are hence getting a crapton of undeserved downvotes). The way I understand him, he means to say that these guys look tougher and superior than anything the Talibs could even imagine. Kind of like British regulars
>The gau-8 doesn’t really do anti personnel Well that’s funny since they have rounds for the GAU-8 made specifically for anti-personnel, and 3 listed as for use against personnel > The 30mm x 173mm family includes a full spectrum of effective ammunition including armor-piercing,
Pakistan, specifically due to the millions of Afghan refugees that live in the part of Pakistan called “Federally Administered Tribal Areas.” Though I suspect that they also have a ton of dirty, unwashed, smelly sex as well. These same cats were within 60 miles
They are actually pretty well trained. No sarcasm here. I’ve read an article about ISOF training. They are currently getting training from Dutch, Belgian and Norwegian tier 1 SOF in one place in Baghdad. Maybe there are other nations training them on other places
This is blowing my mind, the first shot looks like it could be on the cover of a 70s sci-fi book of space marines conquering a new land and after you check the comments you discover an equally beautiful gif from the perspective of
> I dont see how any of those but the last one cant be applied by a normal army? The U.S in particular has been very bad at “hearts and minds” since 9/11 as every “Haji” was guilty by association to huge swathes of
Last I heard it was only two, one in the States (coming back to Canada at some point) and one up here (the third you mentioned being beyond repair). They’re usually based in Kelowna or Kamloops and you can see them from the roadside.
People like the idea of them. In reality and for the most part, though, mustang officers tend to be either extremely good or extremely bad. They either use the street smarts they learned as enlisted to better do their officer job, or they can’t
Tjena grabben! Jag är i den finska militären. In our tents (for up to 14 peeps) the “oven” is said to burn up anything except itself, so someone put a plastic bottle in it. First came the smell and then the smoke. We had
I know, I was so stoked as I read about what happened when they were scrambling the Apaches to hellfire the thing to death, only to have a basement get there first 🙁 But yeah, the way he did it there was no getting
