 These fellows are from a long past tradition called "Pioneers", that picture is from Bosnia somewhere (probably Vuk)

 They are not fucking lumberjacks, nor are they part of special forces, now was their mother a goddamn beaver.

If you kids insist on necroing bullcrap threads from FF at the very least provide accurate citations that properly represent these characters. Google isn't hard to use and if you won't put in that kind of effort to learn, why are you wasting our time by misrepresenting images?


 Given the lack of knowledge imparted, this thread does not deserve to be stickied at all. I propose that the moderators remove this thread from permanent display as long as there are major issues with proper documentation and citation.

I can't tell much about this except it's late ww1.
From what I've learned in this thread however, these are FUCKING CANADIAN LUMBERJACK COMMANDOS YEAH Canadian Pioneers. I don't know whether this is in Bosnia or somewhere else, but I sure do hope I do not compromise information concerning and operational context with this picture, I sure don't mean to blow up the operation in case it's still running. If so, the canadian government may send me a PM and I'll take the picture down.

Holy fuck, Sheik... anyway, though I always (maybe) try to be humble, I can never resist posting the picture of my great-grand uncle, who won the VC posthumously at Cambrai in 1917.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/ee/VCJamesSamuelEmerson.jpg)


His citation reads: For repeated acts of most conspicuous bravery. He led his company in an attack and cleared 400 yards of trench. Though wounded, when the enemy attacked in superior numbers, he sprang out of the trench with eight men and met the attack in the open, killing many and taking six prisoners. For three hours after this, all other Officers having become casualties, he remained with his company, refusing to go to the dressing station, and repeatedly repelled bombing attacks. Later, when the enemy again attacked in superior numbers, he led his men to repel the attack and was mortally wounded. His heroism, when worn out and exhausted from loss of blood, inspired his men to hold out, though almost surrounded, till reinforcements arrived and dislodged the enemy.

Awesome picture Schneider! it's probably noisy and hot inside so most of the crew went outside, hehe.

Maybe!  :) However it seems that back than already riding on a tank was a nice way of taxiing for infantry (though the would have probably been faster on foot  ;) ).

As seen below - there are no further information provided where exactly it is, but it has been shot in July 1918.

It was indeed a nice way to lift but inside the A7V it was very noisy and very hot because of that engine and if your  just the MG gunner or loader you use your brains and climb out. Remember it was a crew of 18  :P First picture you posted has 11 men on top, this one 12. So around 6 are needed to keep it running?

Great picture of a tunnel rat Sturm, have to continue on that.

The 'Ringmaster' of the 'Flying Circus' - Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen climbs into the cockpit of the Albatros D.III he flew in early 1917. The aircraft's fuselage and tail unit were overpainted with a somewhat translucent coat of red, which partially obscured the fuselage cross. The serial number of this machine remains mystery, the centrally-mounted radiator in the top wing indicating that it was an earlier number than D.2200/16, and thus not the D.III D.789/17 he flew in June. Richthofen's bulky fur flying boots necessitated the use of the stepladder

The US Army had no threat from MiG-17 fighter bombers during the Vietnam War as the North Vietnamese air force was entirely dedicated to air defense and did not fly close air support missions. I don't know if air defense was the original rationale for deploying the M42 to Vietnam, but it saw excellent service as an infantry support weapon.
A few MiG-17's where briefly used as Fighter bombers. The M42 duster was send to Vietnam because the MIM Hawk SAM was terrible at low altitude. But as later the entire NVA airforce was used as Airdefense( you are correct) the M42 lost its air defense role, and was used as a Gun platform against ground targets, in wich it earned its fame and its nickname

I first was shocked to see those warbirds in................full chrome with the redbull logo on it. But when i found out that Red bull salvaged these planes, to make them back airworthy, i guess they got my support their

Vfw Aloys Heldmann appears properly nonchalant after his "Damenladung" (Ladies' landing) in Albatros D.II D.490/16 in his early days of Jasta 10. Heldmann was one of the first members of this Staffel, and he gave sterling service in the unit throught to end of the war, twice filling the role of acting commander. He ended the war with 15 confirmed victories, and lived to be one of the last survivors of the Geschwader.

The mean frontal view of an BMPT. The answer to the losses of MBT's in urban grounds. A deticated Anti-personell vehicle. In urban combat, the ratio of BMPT's is gonna be 2:1 with MBT's. On Rural operation it is 2 MBT per one BMPT

 This beast has=
-two 30 mm 2A42 dual-feed cannon
-two AGS-17D 30 mm grenade launchers
-9M120 Ataka-V ATGM system (4 launchers)
-one 7.62mm machine gun
and additional weapons can be installed

The russian armed forces are highly praised of this new vehicle.

Russian AFV development has always been imo, one step ahead of the US ones

German bunker in World War 1 on the Western Front.  Unlike the allies, the germans lived in relative comfort, creating massive bunker cities underneath the lines, complete with armoures, kitchens, and even running water and electricity if they were near enough to villages.  Soldiers were allowed to bring furniture from home, or from destroyed towns, and even wallpapered the wood and earthen walls.  Excess rain and waste water was pumped out, and, as the german positions were almost always higher then the allied, was allowed to flow down into the allied trenches.  It all stemmed from the differing tactical choices, the allied generals believing, to the end of the war, that trenches were temporary, and duly should not be made to live in, as the men are supposed to be charging forward, while the germans saw trenches are a permanent feature of the war, and duly should be made comfortable for the soldiers to live in.

An abandoned Argentine rocket launcher on an improvised mounting discovered on top of a slide in a children's playground at the Goose Green settlement.

Sgt Ronald Hudson was serving as United Kingdom Land Force Public Relations Photographer at British Army HQ North East District, Imphal Barracks, York when he was tasked to accompany 2 Parachute Regiment to the Falklands. He sailed from Portsmouth on MV NORLAND on 26 April 1982, pausing (but not going ashore) at Ascension Island. Although MV NORLAND was his main base, he also spent time on CANBERRA and HMS RESOURCE. Hudson accompanied the landing of 5 Brigade at San Carlos on 21 May 1982 and subsequently covered Goose Green, Darwin, Bluff Cove, Mount Harriet and the advance on Port Stanley, working closely with Paul Haley, official photographer for Soldier Magazine. Hudson returned to Britain shortly after the surrender, returning from Ascension Island by Hercules aircraft. On leaving the Army, Hudson continued to work as a professional photographer in Yorkshire.

I was there with at Ranger Coy. Really solid guy. He got complimented many times on his grooming even by the CDS.
Those rangers are very well versed with those Enfields. Its not 5.56 its 7.62. They have killed polar bears with those rifles, and I would trust no one else but a ranger out there.
They are also armed with shotguns.

@Hassel
Which exercise was this? It looks like Northern Ontario or the Yukon to me but what the hell do I know
 Btw the Lee Enfield is a .303 rifle cartridge which is actually a little different from 7.62. If they (Rangers) needed a 7.62, then we should have never scrapped or sold our FN C1's to New Zealand .

@ Megaraptor,
One of the main reasons for issuing the .303 has to do with sourcing rounds for these rifles in a manner which is consistent with local procurement policies (out of rounds? pop into the gun shop).
 Seeing that the Canadian Rangers are not members of the Regular Canadian Forces, it would not be appropriate to issue anything more than a weapon for personal protection against wildlife and for subsistence hunting. (as a note, not every Ranger patrol is issued firearms, on the West Coast a couple of the units are authorized to carry their own rifle (or shotgun) with reimbursement for a nominal amount of rounds purchased, instead of being issued CF surplus material)

 The greatest benefit acquired from Ranger patrols is the structured application of subsistence and navigation skills that are slowly being lost to technology and from cultural apathy amongst most Canadian tribes.

 

Members of the Canadian Rangers take part in a exercise during Operation Nanook in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Sunday, August 23, 2009. Operation Nanook is a inter-governmental operation that takes place in Canada's Arctic to show sovereignty over its northern territory. (Jonathan Hayward, CP)

A Portraits of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is seen during a demonstration against the construction of Israel's separation barrier in the West Bank village of Maasarah near Bethlehem, 16 October 2009. Israel says the 'security barrier' that it began to construct in the wake of the violent Palestinian uprising in 2000 has dramatically reduced attacks on Israelis by preventing militants from infiltrating the country. Palestinians see the barrier as an 'apartheid wall' that hampers freedom of movement and carves off Jewish settlements and other lands from their future state, threatening its economic viability

"Die Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts": Pioniere vor einem Unterstand in der Champagne, Sommer 1915. Der Dichter und Dramatiker August Stramm am 5. Mai 1915 kommentierte: "Ich sitze in einem Erdloch, genannt Unterstand! Famos! Eine Kerze, Ofen, Sessel, Tisch. Alles konform der Neuzeit. Die Kultur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Und oben drauf klatscht es ununterbrochen! Klack! Klack! Scht. summ! Das ist die Ethik des 20. Jahrhunderts. Und neben mir aus der Wand ringeln sich einige Regenwürmer. Das ist die Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts."

'The aesthetics of the 20th century': Pioneers in front of a dugout in Champagne, France, Summer 1915. The poet and dramatist August Stramm comments on May 5th 1915: 'I'm sitting in a burrow, called dugout! Splendit! A candle, oven, armchair, table. Everything conform to the modern era. The culture of the 20th century. And on top it is smacking nonstop. Click! click! sssst smmm! That are the ethics of the 20th century. And next to me some earthworms are curling out of the wall. That are the aesthetics of the 20th century.'

Wilhelm "Willi" Reinhard, commander of Jasta 6, stands by his crash-landed Dr I in his Fliegerkombination (flying suit), holding his Heinecke parachute harness, in mid-march 1918. Reinhard lost his upper wing fabric in flight, which in turn led to structural failure. He succeeded in keeping enough control to force-land, however, althought the Dr I flipped over when its wheels touched the ground, causing most of the damage visible in this photograph. Reinhard's star was on the rise at this period, and he was promoted to hauptmann on 22. March. His score had reached 12 by mid-April, and he subsequently took command of JG I following von Richthofen's death.

A Special Forces soldier observes as an Afghan National Police officer aims his assault-rifle during training in the village of Nili, Afghanistan on Sept. 18, 2009. The team is among only a few U.S. troops to live among Afghans, but there will likely be more. The hope is to push Special Forces teams into villages throughout Afghanistan, giving them the mission of rebuilding and training Afghan police and soldiers rather than hunting insurgents.

Luminous halos twirled above a Boeing CH-47 Chinook on a recent night around 11:30 p.m. local time at Forward Operating Base Jackson in Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan, as helicopters ferried casualties and supplies in and out of the base. The photographer was independent journalist Michael Yon, a former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier now traveling the world's war zones with a camera. Helicopter pilots don't have a name for the effect, but one explained to Yon, "Basically it is a result of static electricity created by friction as...dissimilar material strike against each other.

ISTANBUL, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Turkish navy commandos detained five pirates trying to hijack a Greek boat in the Gulf of Aden, the Turkish military said on Thursday.

The Greek boat was travelling 70 miles from the coast in a security corridor when pirates in a motor boat fired on the vessel.

"The (Turkish naval ship) TCG Gediz prevented the ship hijacking with warning shots and helicopter backup ... The TCG Gediz reacted to the call for help issued by the M/V Theoforos and detained the five bandits on board the motor boat," the military said in a statement.

Mk V Centurion Tank
1st Armoured Regiment
This 50-ton Centurion tank from a troop of B Squadron 1st Armoured Regiment was in support of 5RAR during the Battle of Binh Ba on 6-8 June 1969. The tanks and APCs (from B Squadron 3 Cavalry Regiment) were crucial to the success of 5RAR’s decisive victory over a battalion of 33 North Vietnamese Army Regiment that had attacked and occupied the villages of Binh Ba and Duc Trung on Route 2 to the north of the Australian Task Force base at Nui Dat in Phuoc Tuy Province.
This tank is pictured here on the morning of 7 June 1969 in the rubber plantation to the south west of Binh Ba after having just assisted B and D Companies 5RAR to repulse an early-morning attempt by a company of NVA troops from entering the village.

FMA IA 58 Pucará, Argentine Air Force.

In Service, since the Falklands War (One FMA IA 58 Pucará was Shot Down by small Arms fire from the 2 PARA). I dont know if theres any plan to replace it with a newer model. Since we dont have money to buy A10s, Tornados or things like that, we make our own cheap airplanes. And i guess thats a good way to arm your army..

But the Huey was very good in this role, so they where kept into service even when Cobra's arrived. They where very effective in their role's, but where slower then the Regular Huey's carrieng troops.

Some solutions where to send the Hogs ahead and to time the landing zone and point where both Huey models meet.

But then again when you think about it Belgium has a strictly defensive force and no real outer threat. The only reason why we have so many active helo's is cause in East Turkey you cant drive to combat :)

Thanks for the answer, Tolga! Yeah, I guess your Black Hawks are very popular there as many nations seem to lack decent numbers of transport helos. Heck, even Germany doesn´t have enough, just a few Ch-53s which also have limited capacities ebcause they need additional equipment to operate in the Afghan environment (I think they wanted to ship some old Uh-1D aka Huey to Afghanistan to assist the Ch-53s, but fortunately they abandoned that idea). Good luck to your cousin, I hope he stays safe and also good luck to you, too, incase you´ve got to go (fortunately my chacnes to be sent to Afghanistan are relatively low...).
Anyway, todays contribution to this thread:

@Homer_Jay i dont think Huey's would do too well in Afghanistan, they would need to be heavily upgraded with proper (advanced) Navigation systems, stronger engines.. etc. But more CH-53's or they could probably Lease a few Blackhawks from some countries... I mean hell the Brits borrow Russian Mi-17's and Canadians borrow German Leopard 2's why shouldnt Germany get some Blackhawks off the hands of the Americans for a few years :D

Tolga, that´s exactly the problem with the Hueys. They would be too overloaded with upgrades to make them usable in Afghanistan. Leasing equipment from other countries could work, but I´m not sure if it´s possible in a short time. The Bundeswehr is just like every other German federal organization extremely bureaucratic and unflexible and I´m not sure if our politicians would like to lease foreign equipment. Some people could think they´re unable to control the whole situation.  ::)

Özel Harekat 'Special Forces' posing before an Operation..

Whats interesting is this is 13 different weapon systems in ONE Squad, Turkish Special forces are able to use ANY weapons they please. The state pays for it anyway :)

I think most western country's SF units have that capability.
But 13 different weapons is a bit much variation, ( I count less btw.)
I don't hope your SF goes on operation without vest's and with there sleeves up.
And 13 man in a squad isn't that a bit much? we operate with a max of 9.

Anyways nice pictures.

From uniform nowadays. Marines have digital desert/woodland/snow and army has that grey one.

Yep, that they're finally phasing out cuz they finally realized that grey is not camo.

Also, the marines wear the distinctive traditional dress blues uniform:

German Bundeswehr army soldiers from the 263rd paratrooper unit of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) take cover as they return fire during a firefight with insurgents during a mine sweeping operation in Chahar Dara on the outskirts of Kunduz, December 16, 2009. A combat outpost of the German Bundeswehr was attacked by insurgents, leaving one German soldier seriously injured.

This haunting photograph, which graced every Caribou briefing room, was a grim reminder that the Viet Cong and the NVA were not the only problem for pilots in Vietnam.  This incident occurred in August of 1967 when the Caribou (tail number 62-4161) flew into the line of fire of a 155mm howitzer.  This was early in the transition of the Caribou from the Army to the Air Force and highlighted the need for far better coordination amongst the services.

Our Tank. TAM (Tanque Argentino Mediano) or Argentine Medium Tank on its Transport, Fiat 619Ti.

(http://www.dintel-gid.com.ar/Image/TAMhistoria/tam17.jpg)

The TAM was designed to replace the M4A4 Sherman and Sherman V Firefly. We wanted to get a new tank for the Unique Conditions in our Country.

The US dindt agreed to send Modern Equipment for tanks so the goverment looked in Europe. We bought tanks from France, AMX-13/105, APCs, AMX-13VTT and Mobile Artillery AMX Mk. F-3 de 155 mm. We had a base now, in Cooperation with Germany, we designed the TAM.

From all of sudden, the EA (Not EA Games fools, Ejercito Argentino :) ) recieved a single M-60A1 from the US Army. Why? the US Goverment tried to prevent the development of the TAM and insert their M60s here to earn money, and make some friends.

But the desicion was made...

The Tests for the TAM lasted for 2 Years, proving grounds, the entire country.

She has been in service since 1983 untill now. Theres no replacement available yet and there will be no replacement for a loong time.

Primary
armament    105-mm FM K.4 Modelo 1L
Secondary
armament    2×7.62 mm machine gun
Engine    MTU-MB 833 Ka-500 6-cylinder 22.4 l diesel

An M551 Sheridan. The M551 Sheridan is an Armored Reconnaissance Airborne Assault Vehicle. Used in recon or with airborne units.

The sheridan is something the Airborne troops always liked. It gave them a counter against other tanks and a firesuppport vehicle.

The Airborne troops where always jealous because of the Soviets equipping their VVS with BMD vehicle's. When the Airborne forces finnaly got their Sheridans, wich was a decent vehicle, they thought they could keep it.

Saddly not, in 1996 all sheridans where withdrawn, and they recieved no replacement for it.

Despite what people said about the Sheridan, it was a good vehicle wich could furfill it roles

In a military exposition a couple of years ago, i was able to enter in this tank and talk with the crew. I looked trough the cannon and it was amazing!, i asked if it had defense against infantry, i dunno what he replied but he said if the friendly forces were retreating and the front line was getting closer to them, they will retreat at full speed.

This tank has a few variants, from the MBT, to the 20mm Armed Troop Carrier, to the Heavy Howitzer, Mortar Carrier, Ammo Carrier and one similar to the Calliope. This one launchs rockets of 160mm and 320mm

The HE shell was so powerfull, it could flip a Main battletank over if it landed in a  1.5-2Meter radius, something wich was easly achievable because of its imense accuracy

At 37 km you are VERY glad if you hit within 100 meters of your target. Having the shell land 1,5-2 meters from a MBT is pure luck even for modern artillery (unless it's guided) at close range (say two km). Artillery is not pin point accuracy, it's about area denial/destruction/surpression.

However, the tank flipping is true since even a 155mm can do that (atleast I've been told so).
The M107 was very accurate. What you say is true, but the crews/spotters where well trained in doing their task.

Beside, the Soviet Doctorine during the cold war was to attack en masse with Tanks. So the accuracy drop issent a problem.

with that said, the M107 was still a very good unit. It could achieve speeds of 50MPH(80KM/H). Because of not having an enclosed turret, once supplied with shells from exterior units the M107 could infact achieve a higher Rate of fire then a M109 Paladin.

It was always therefor, accompied by M548 Ammunition carriers. Wich also provided local area defense with its .50CAL

It has been actually been designed that it wont shut down when dusted ;)
High tech on the outside, fairly simple and easy maintained on the inside

Belgian soldiers operating it in afghanistan dint had much problems with the rifle so far. Just like any other Rifle

Still looks too sci-fi :P

Is it a successor of the P90?

More from La Tablada. Argentine solder stands in front of, a destroyed civilian car, god knows whats that. Maybe, if it used to be a car, then it was runned over by a TAM, or just a victim of the heavy fire. The Argentine Army deployed, Tanks, APC, Trucks and even Anti Aircraft Guns. To prevent a new Coup d Etat, on the recently created Democratic Republic. After years of Military Goverment, a new Democratic goverment led by Alfonsin (Died 2009) came to save Argentina. This group of Rebels was planning a new Coup to restore the Military Goverment, again. God Bless the Army, they saved our asses, maybe you have no idea about the Situation here, when the Army was in Charge of the entire country...

still, the M4 is gonna be replaced by the SCAR with the SOCOM. The M4 is a good rifle. And any weapon jams. Training solves this problem.

Soldier testing out their new spec ops rifles=the SCAR. This one is a SCAR-L. Firing 5.56MM NATO rounds. The thing what gave the SCAR an advantage over their competitors(XM8,HK416) is that it is also avaible in 7.62MM NATO rounds, giving a powerfull battlerifle when needed.

ACU's is just very random and very grey.. I dont even know why US brought them into service in the first place :/

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/10/Hawthorn_Ridge_mine_1_July_1916_2.jpg)

The Hawthorn Ridge mine was the northern-most of the ten mines detonated on 1 July and one of the three large mines, the other two being the Lochnagar mine and the Y Sap mine at La Boisselle. The mine contained about 40,000 lb (18 long tons) of explosives. The plan was to detonate all other mines at 7:28 am, two minutes before Zero hour when the infantry advance would begin, but Lieutenant-General Aylmer Hunter-Weston, whose VIII Corps was holding the Hawthorn Ridge sector, favoured blowing the mine hours before the main attack, believing this would give his 29th Division time to capture and consolidate the crater. However, the Fourth Army commander, Lieutenant-General Henry Rawlinson rejected this proposal on the grounds that the Germans would probably take possession of the crater. In this stance he was supported by General Sir Douglas Haig, commander of the British Expeditionary Force. As a compromise, Hunter-Weston was allowed to blow the mine ten minutes before Zero, rather than two minutes.

One witness to the detonation of the Hawthorn Ridge mine was British cinematographer Geoffrey Malins who was filming the 29th Division's attack. He had his camera set up about half a mile away, trained on the ridge and waiting for the explosion.

I don't think hes just infantry. Body armour seems typical for those who have to clean up mines etc.
I doubt it was for mine clearing.  I suspect it was to give further protection against shrapnel and bomb splinters.

Yes, they started issuing that armour to machine gunners, and stormtroopers and the like, though I believe it was often discarded.

Yeah, the only thing that was kept was the helmet and the brow plate for sentries and snipers (as that actually COULD stop a bullet, but was incredibly heavy, so not useful at all for the attack).

Note the British Bristol vest, one of those guys is wearing, which still has its DPM pattern. The rest is equipped with Mehler SK body armour. All of them wear their berrets, the European Flecktarn uniform and the guy maning the MG wears his yellow "Spieß" ribbon. Also their "Wolf" car is unarmoured and doesn´t have a roof.

Of course you can say its a bad thing but I thats how I feel and im sure alot of other people would too if their buddies arm flew in their face or their cousin died in an ambush because of the same guys, im just sayin. So im showing as much respect to them as they would show for my dead body

At least Taliban is trying to take as much bodys with them as they can ;D, very sympathetic of them.

Do not disrespect the dead.  They are guilty of no crimes and you too will eventually join their ranks.  What a person does wrong by you ends at their death.

Differences of opinion...

My beef isnt with the Kurds, its like Homer Jay said the PKK. I dont care what the Kurds want to do in Turkey, i'd say give them whatever they want in Turkey and let them be miserable citizens like us lol. In the 80's they began mass migration here eventually wanted a country named Kurdistan, dunno might of said this before on this thread too. Anyway they started making sure SE Turkey didnt develop, killed some teachers, engineers etc started picking on the Army, Army started attacking back, went into Iraq around 5 times since 90's cause thats where they attack from. They pull off an ambush run across the border and we give chase till we get tired :P

Anyway bit off topic peoples? :P

You have absolutely no idea who these people are do you? Before the most recent invasion they were famous for going around Afghanistan and destroying any religious items not having to do with their particular brand of Islam.

These people (I stretch the definition of the word) are thugs, nothing more. They want to be the big boys on the block in Afghanistan. Pile em up and use them as sandbags I say. Beating women to death for not covering their faces? Yah, you go ahead and be sympathetic

GO GET EM, BOYS!!

TOS-1 Buratino's battery firing.

The TOS-1 is an unique vehicle. Its an heavy Short range MLRS. Designed to take out Personell in fortifications, vehicle's, transports and so on. It actually wipes out everything that issent an MBT. It follows right behind Russia's Armored colums, firing 175KG 220MM rockets, of wich 30 are carried. Often 1-2 are fired, but it can deplete all of its missiles in 15Seconds. At a minimum range of 400 meters, and a maximum of 5000.

This is what i admire and respect Russia over America. They have much more usefull vehicle's. And admit it, this thing looks epic

More useful? For what? Blowing up a city block? Besides, it's just a pod of rockets that would usually be on a truck put on a now otherwise useless T-80 (T-72?).

American MLRS systems have a range of like 300 miles! Is that not useful? I think you are confusing the word with "looks cooler".

Note he said vehicles, he's not just talking about the TOS-1 in particular. I can cite a couple examples at how the Russians/Soviet Union created very useful vehicle that the U.S. didn't, or didn't until after the USSR did.

You are looking the wrong way.

What did MBT's proven the last few decades? Perfect for ripping anything in the fields. Useless in a city. Many T-72's and T-80's where taken out in afghanistan. THeir turrets couldnt elevate to fire well. The top armor was vurnable. The Anti-Personell performance was lacking.
What happend with the Americans in Bagdad? Same story. They where smarter, as they dint allowed their tanks to move ahead without proper intelligence first.

Now to counter this, Russia developed several systems wich can support MAIN BATTLE tanks up close. 2 Examples= The BMPT and the TOS-1 Buratino.

The TOS-1 Buratino is a Short range MLRS designed to support MBT colums in the fields, and attack targets in urban area.Here you come with ur "OMG AWESOME US STUFF 300 MILES". This thing fires 175KG of Thermobaric rockets wich simply destroys/burns anything what issent a Main battle tank. Its a close support vehicle. Designed to attack targets of 5000M. At that range, the T-72/ T-80 is a perfect chassis, as it provided still valuable protection. ATGM's will be rarely fired at them, because you have to focus on those dozens of Russians T-80UD/T-90's coming your way. And at those ranges, the T-80 chassis is strong enough to survive tank shells.
And do the americans have something like this to protect them? No

The BMPT can be used in a city with no problems. It is heavily armoured on places where it can be attacked. And it has= 2 30MM Autocannons, 2 30MM Grenade launchers 2PKM Machine guns and anti tank missiles. This thing easily rips trough infantery. Back in Afghanistan, the Soviets used ZSU-23 Shilka's as tank support vehicles. Result=MBT losses where down with 70%. But the Shilka has paper thin armor, so they could be easily attacked. The BMPT has the armor of a MBT with added roof armor. And a firepower wich will seriously regret people from sticking their heads out of a window.
And do the american troops have such an effective Anti-personell unit to protect them in cities? Euuuuhhmm     Nah

And this is why the Russians simply owned the frak out of US tank equipment. They have much more diffrent kinds of vehicle's. The current threath of Urban combat is increasing daily. And what did the US replied with? A Stryker armed with a .50CAL. What do the Russians come up with? See above. Those things are actually usefull. And dont come with "YE but look at the GULF war YEAH we owned those tanks! 70% of the Iraqi army was equipped with Type 59 and 61 tanks. These where chinese copies( Wich are less armoured/equipped) then their Soviet counterparts= 1950 T-55/62 Main battle tanks. These old buckets have to face Modern MBT's like the M1 Abrams, Challenger 2 and a gaint airforce with no to very little airsupport to themself. With an very old, outdated AAA to protect them


The US always had better planes. The Soviets/Russians always had better vehicle's.

Russian Airborne troops are protected by a wide series of vehicles wich are dropped with them. The US Airborne troops where begging for a Replacement for the Sheridan, or even keeping it in service.

And yes they all look much cooler

Try to find one US vehicle wich looks as intimidating as this (BMPT)

Pretty badass indeed.

Re: The guy up there who is offended by people liking US vehicles;

Afghanistan is what we would call "Not good tank country." No matter how badass and indestructible your tank may seem, in afghanistan it will be severely limited. Yes, casualties dropped when the ZSUs were used, but the primary purpose of tanks is not to protect themselves. That is what bunkers are for. In Afghanistan tanks lacked the mobility to do much, which is why the ISAF has not deployed many or any tanks but has deployed huge numbers of light infantry and helicopters.

Yes, the BMPT is a better support vehicle, and the TOS-1 is a better kill'em'all vehicle, but there are differences. The US has never needed vehicles like that, quite frankly, and it is very unfair to compare the Stryker to the BMPT.

The US doesn't use urban warfare tactics or strategy that would permit use of a system such as a TOS-1, and never really needed it; US strategy has usually depended on heavy armor and speed along with close air support to launch a fast moving Uber-Blitzkrieg, and so the fortifications would be attacked with long range artillery and close air support, and all the ground vehicles would be for direct engagement, not support. The Abrams is accurate out to 3500m and capable of killing T-series tank chassis at that range, but can close the distance extremely rapidly, making TOS-1 type systems not terribly useful; with good communications air support can be more effective, and we DONT use blanket bombardments against civilian structures.

The BMPT is not a fait comparison to the stryker; one is an APC and one is an...well, whatever it is, its not an APC. in the current wars, I would say that the Stryker is much more useful than the BMPT, considering that most casualties come from IEDs and not from small arms fire. MRAPs are even more relevant, and are something the russians are not known for. If we needed the BMPT, we would probably make one, but it has apparently been unnecessary till now. Also note, the lack of those vehicles did nothing to keep us out of baghdad; it certainly didn't turn into a us-Grozny type thing.

American tactics are different than russian ones, and our vehicles are different as well. The russians used a conscript army, whereas the US uses a volunteer force. The russians use human wave style mass assaults, while the US uses fast moving highly skilled spearheads with CAS. (also note that the stryker which everyone derides has proven to be extremely durable.)

In the conflicts we are in, helicopters and infantry are far more useful than tanks. Yes, I'd like to have a BMPT in a city, but it would still be very restricted and no less vulnerable than a tank against ieds. I'd sooner have a blackhawk or apache or platoon of infantry, to be quite honest.

Also, you'll be hard pressed to find a vehicle more badass than the vigilante:
(http://www.quarry.nildram.co.uk/T249_Vigilante.jpg)

Yes, thats a 37mm 6 barreled gatling gun firing at 3000 rpm.

I would also debate the point that all russian ground vehicles are always better than american ones. Yes, the M1 absolutely raped T-72s and chinese vehicles during Gulf War, but do you really think the T-90 could have fared any better, especially considering that the T-90 has the same gun as the T-72, which could not penetrate abrams armor from frontal arc at 50m?

I still think the Leopard 2A6M is the best overall tank. It is much cheaper than an M1, has similar armour, the long barreled 120mm gun with an option to rebarel a 140mm and has a diesel engine. Where i think the t72 comes short is fire control and digital battlefield managment. The Russians just cant seem to build good fire control systems and thats my only real complaint. Western tanks hit with the first shot with a high precentage and it only takes one shot these days.

But leopards Are the best tanks in the world. A good main battle tank combines Firepower, Armor, mobility, numbers and maintance/support and such

The leopard 2 scores the best on all those level's. M1 Abram's are simply to costly to operate, and are to fuel hungry. And while the T-90 is an excellent tank in firepower, armor, mobility and maintance/support, it is still a new tank, with only a mere thousand built.
The T-90 has one of the best fire support systems in the world though. I think the Leopard's one is still better

Agreed, the Leopard is the best tank in world, closely followed by Challenger 2 and M1 Abrams. I don't really have faith in the Leclerc, nor do I think that the T-90 is anything special, really. I don't believe that anything fantastic can come of a T-72 modification, no matter how drastic the improvement is. Its the difference between an M60 and a Chieftain; there's only so much you can do with the same chassis.

Granted, I am wholly unfamiliar with the new asian tanks. I hear good things about the new SKorean one, though.

Theta, American tactics don't allow for use of any vehicle in that manner, and I think you are overstating the effectiveness of the BMPT. Notably, it is used for suppression, not clearing. Abrams or BMPT, you still need infantry, and helicopters and drones are more useful there also.

I don't believe that anything fantastic can come of a T-72 modification, no matter how drastic the improvement is. Its the difference between an M60 and a Chieftain; there's only so much you can do with the same chassis.
The T-90 is actually a interm solution. It will remain in a constant, low rate production untill 2025. This is to allow funds high for the T95. A brand new, state of the art russian tank with technology, Armament and protection never seen before

The T-90 is mere derived from the T-72. Their issent much simular towards it, exept maybe its appearnces. The T-90 is basicly a high grade batte tank derived from a Cheap, simple mass produced MBT like the T-72.
T-90 for instance, has a much more advanced Main gun, backed up by the latest Fire support system, with excellent armor (One T-90 recieved 7 hits by RPG's of various types, and was still in action) backed up by 3 important defensive systems=Shtora ATGM infra red jamming, ARENA Active defense system and KONTAKT-5 ERA. The T-90 that was hit 7 times only had KONTAKT-5. So unlike the T-72, its a pretty good tank

Quote
Granted, I am wholly unfamiliar with the new asian tanks. I hear good things about the new SKorean one, though.
Many countries are developing their own MBT's now. South Korea with the K2 black Panther, Japan with the Type 90, with another new tank in development. Turkey is now also designing its own tank now. Not to mention china and India.
Stiff competition from the East. Its true what some people said= We really need to watch out for the chinese.

Quote
Theta, American tactics don't allow for use of any vehicle in that manner, and I think you are overstating the effectiveness of the BMPT. Notably, it is used for suppression, not clearing. Abrams or BMPT, you still need infantry, and helicopters and drones are more useful there also.
Indeed. That is true. But having a BMPT in a city, and not having one, matters alot. You can rain an arsenal of diffrent types of Anti personall weapons. No other weapon system has this in the world. And it is a fact that combat has shifted towards the Urbans


Quote
Take something more practical than your silly TOR-1!
Still the TOS-1 has proven itself  ;) ;)

These days, many countries developed their own MBT. But one other unit is developed by many countries.

The self-propelled 155MM Howitzer. This one is a polish AHS Krab

asking some 19year old dude that just did lumpen (swedish compulsory military service) if he wants to "extend" his service and then go fight ev0l instead of going to some dead-end job, unemployed or to some boring school (it's not gonna give you a job anyway dude, you know how the economy is nowadays, right?) - this is not "free will", it's manipulative and abusive!

I just saw some 19year old child on the news who will replace these guys that got killed. His respons to the question "How does it feel to go there now after this have happened" was... "it makes me wanna go there even more"....  :-\ free will.....yyyeaaa...... riiiite....  :-X
Firstly, it's not like every person before ending their military service are told about how cool it would be to go on international missions and how much their life will suck from here on. The initiative always comes from the person themselves being interested.

Secondly, free will doesn't mean the freedom to think what you think just because you know it's right. And if a 19-year old is still a child, sucks to be him/her. Maybe if everyone wasn't so cocooned and protected from the big bad world they would grow up before hitting 30.

Hell, I'd be fine with overseas duty, except that I hate the physical stuff and wearing a ton of clothing in heat. But if I could drive around Afghanistan with a truck/APC for a few months and get paid for it, why not?


Anyway, to stay on topic:

It was an excellent support vehicle for the USMC. Being very fast, excellent terrain performance and so on
The downsides where that the crew had to exit to reload the Ontos.

Those are the CRV-7, by the way. Armor piercing 70mm rockets, not your normal kind. More accurate than a 30mm cannon and can punch through a 3 ft concrete wall.

Only prototypes of the Centurion were armed with the Polsten cannon, the Mk.1 was armed with a 17pdr and coaxial BESA, as was the Mk.2, which had the improved cast turret that was used until the end of production. The Mk.3 was basically a Mk.2 armed with the 20pdr and coaxial BESA.

German soldier and some dogs in gas masks.  I'm assuming this is from the interwar period, since he has a helmet with the side prongs and a rifle that probably isn't a K98k, but a WWII looking uniform.  However, this is all speculation on my part (since the site I got it from claims its a british soldier just a few days after the first gas attack at Ypres).

Russian tanks has always been robuust. Take one up to date russian tank VS an up to date Westren tank, and you have a tank wich cost much less, easier to maintain, and get simular to better combat performance

Robust until the ammo cooks off. Having plenty of cheap, easy to maintain, robust Soviet armour really helped the Iraqis back in '91.

Thats very easily said.

The Iraqi's had 4500 tanks during the first gulf war. Of these, where the grand majority Type 59(Chinese copy of the T-54) and the Type 69 (Chinese copy of the T-55). These are 50   50 year old tanks. They are infact even cheaper ones then the russian counterparts. These tanks have to face 3150 Modern tanks (US M1 Abrams and M60. British Challenger I). Their is no doubt that they will lose

Of the 4500 tanks, the Iraqi's had 200 T-72M Asad babil or Lion of Babylon tanks. These tanks could destroy the above tanks. Not bad for a tank wich is 20 years older then the M1 right? What was the problem? They lacked night vision, and the devisions equipped with T-72M where often attacked at night. Still, the Frontal armor was able to withstand TOW, Javelin and even some 120MM HEAT rounds fired by an abrams. Not bad for a 20 year old tank ?

Plus their armamant was effecient enough. Many US officials deny it, but their is enough evidence that M1's where taken out by T-72M's. One fully confirmed kill is M1 Abrams Callsign B-23
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/B-23-1991.jpg)

Not bad for a 20 year old tank eh?

And recall what i said. An up to date modern russian tank has simular or better combat performance then many of their westren counterparts. And at a much cheaper and easier to maintain cost.

Yep, the tank-shaped pine tree in the middle of a field. Perfect Camouflage. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0WOIwlXE9g)

First of all it was I was near the tree line, and second, its a camouflage made to move with..witch isn't easy. At 500 meters it wil be damn hard to spot standing still near a tree line. What you think is harder to spot a vehicle with pine tree branches on it, or with nothing at all..  ;)

I understand and fully appreciate your effort, but just take it as constructive criticism because you'll lose marks in your English essays writing didn't like that. Also, all Germans that I've know have spoken very good English, the French however...
Well they speak good english. But many of them simply have the attitude of= MY language first!

On a server like Hslan, this is alright. It is a german owned server. But many people just come to a server and  start to speak in their language when they a problem

The Fall of the Alamo (1903) by Robert Jenkins Onderdonk, depicts Davy Crockett wielding his rifle as a club against Mexican troops who have breached the walls of the mission.

Quote
The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal point in the Texas Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission in San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas). All but two of the Texian defenders were killed. Santa Anna's perceived cruelty during the battle inspired many Texians—both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.

Sicario the tank is an M60 Patton like TA0 said.
Desertfox there are many different upgrades, the most obvious ones TA0 already posted so I dont think I need to explain any further :) M60TTS stands for Tank Thermal Sights, it was used by all upgraded M60 Pattons in the US during the early 90's, and the M60T or Sabra Mark III which is a brand new tank with more armor, stronger engine, bigger 120mm armanent and Infrared warning system..

NEAR GROZNY, CHECHNYA Afterward: Lowe remembers well sneaking into Chechnya from Ingushetia to take this haunting photo of war in Russia, huddled in the back of a minibus "full of old Chechen women and their animals." Driving along a road from the capital city of Grozny to the surrounding villages, he came across an abandoned bullet-riddled car. Nearby, this is what remained after bodies had been dragged away. "To me, this is not in itself a picture of violence, but speaks of what violence means," Lowe says. "You can see traces of each action: first the fresh snow, then a body lain down, and the blood seeps into the snow. Then people running around in chaos."

Im still baffled why Turkey invaded Cyprus  :P

I went there my holiday ages ago, i remember going to Nicosia and going to the border, where i stood with a Greek soldier and looked over the wall: completley deserted, baron, and what looked like to have been quite a bit of fighting that had taken place there.

Bitches had it coming, yo :D

But yeh, Cyprus was hell, both sides killed POW's so its bleh.

@ Invicible, nice concept, how many are the Dutch planning to produce? We too should be getting an LHD  in the next few years and the requirement is somewhere around

- 8 helicopters
- 100 vehicles
- 1000 personnel
- 19 thousand tonnes
- 190m length

Only one is being build for the Koninklijke Marine (Royal Navy or Royal Netherlandic Navy*) so far and is to replace the oldest transport/logistics ship,  the Hr. Ms. Zuiderkruis (HMS Southerncross) and is meant to be able to:

- transport heavy equipement (Leopards, Howitzers, 2  chinooks or 6 NH-90's more heli space at the lwoer deck if required, up to 6 chinooks for example )
- Logistic support (heli landings)
- Large storage space (logistics)
- 2 LVCPs
- Room for 300 people (of which a cre of 150)

Size:    204,7 x 30,4 x 8 meters
Weight: 27.800 ton
Speed: 18 knots

* Speaking of which, if we translate the various "royal navies" to inlcude the country name, why not call the British royal navy "Royal British Navy"? xD Plenty of navies call themselfs "Royal navy" in their own language and also use HMS (in their own language) when naming ships. =p
Edit: On the wbesite of the ministery of defence they use a different render:

Oh and other ships that are WIP are some OPVs (Ocean Patrol Vessel), which will be of the "Holland klass" (Holland class), they'll be "ocean going patrolships" (corvettes aka "small fregats"):

(http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/9112/opv4bv3.jpg)

They's use the names of various provinces (drawing from a source of 7 provinces, theses days we have 12 provinces, for example the former province "holland" was split up in "noord holland" and "zuid holland"):
- P840 Hr. Ms. Holland (Hms Holland)
- P841 Hr. Ms. Zeeland (Hms Sealand)
- P842 Hr. Ms. Friesland (Hms Friesland)
- P843 Hr. Ms. Groningen (Hms Groningen)

Source: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollandklasse_%28OPV%29

Not to be  confused with the zeven provinciën (seven procinces)class, which are fregats from 2002-2005:
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Zeven_Provinci%C3%ABnklasse_%28fregat%29

Rather funny, you'd expect the seven provinces class ships to carry the names of one of the former seven provinces, but these guys carry the names of former people of importance in the KM. :D

The Virginia class, Blocks IV and V. These are going to replace the Los Angeles, in similar numbers but much more versatile, cheaper to run, and as quiet as the seawolfs. They only have 4 torpedo tubes to the Seawolfs' eight but also come with 10 VLS tubes as well as lots of sonar (including for minesweeping) and storage and lockout trunks for SEAL teams. Blocks IV and V will have sleeker sails, and plans are in the works for replacing the torpedo tubes with bomb bays for swim out torpedoes of any size. Alternatively, there are tentative plans for replacing the tubes with the supersized tubes of the Seawolf class.

That's not even close to what a Virginia class looks like. Not even a little close to the concept designs. Also, the USS California was layed down a year ago. Way to keep up with the times, guys. Stop watching the military channel for "current" info.

THIS, is the Virginia Class submarine North Carolina.

So seeing the thing and meeting with the crew gives you inside knowledge of the future design plans, and the credibility to call GlobalSecurity "secondhand rubbish?" Whats next, FAS MAN is a jingoistic rumor mill?

Stationed within a pistol shot of that ship from the moment it's keel was laid down til the end of this past October. I have seen it in a condition that suggests it is under construction. I have met the crew, I have seen their barracks. Call me a liar again.

Unlike the M42 wich dint saw much air targets, M19's did. And they managed to rack up quiet some kills during the Korean war

there is no such thing as "military men"... it's just boys in costumes with toys.. fooled into a manipulative system that is overpowering for their personalities. I dislike military systems and the primitive mindset of warfare and how easily it gets justified, that's all.  :-\
-no offense-

No offense taken. But in which way do you see me as a boy with a costume and a toy? I mean since you think of all militaries that way it must also include me. My job might not be working for some bank in Istanbul but I take pride in it, I dont do it to be a national hero, I dont do it to shoot guns or people, im not some monster, im just very loyal and choose to serve my state like many people around the world. Yes im 19, Ive made the decision when I was 15. Nobody forced me to sign a paper to join the cadets to become an Officer, nobody forced me to go to war, I did this all voluntarily, as do alot of soldiers. If when the soldiers get to a war zone they lose their mind, well tough luck fvcker you signed up for the Army, its not anybody elses problem but the persons. Anyway enough about my rant to you Greenpeace people lmao

@Invincible. I respect your decision and I wish you every luck in the world. My older brother who is 39 lives in Holland. He has enlisted in the dutch army now, he has lived there for like 12 years. I don't know where they will send him (he will be a captain, dunno what unit) but I hope not to a place where there is any live action.

sorry for the OT, allthough this is OT forum.. so.... I don't like to not face the reality in discussing important things, so if I cut straight to the point with the psychiatric stuff, that's only because I care, and because that is where it will end in the end, if shit goes wrong...  :-\



And just because I can, I'll ask you one last question:
If the shit hits the fan, would you be telling everyone how war is wrong and be stomped on, or pointing your medic kit at the enemy in a frozen forest?


This question is also a test to see if you are a ganja smoking hippy living on idealism, or a realist who actually lives on planet earth.

It not as close related family to the M113 as you might expect, It was the main opponent from the M113 too find a new APC for the US army. Nowadays it got a far better turbocharged engine as an M113, A 25 mm Gun + coax, It still is amphibious. (although the turret version tends to tip over cose of the weight of the gun.)

Historian Jake Powers was aware this moment was coming, and he was on the spot with his camera when Dick Winters (left), and Ronald 'Sparky' Speirs shared their first moments reunited. Knowing the life and death situations they often faced, we can only marvel at what thoughts and emotions must have surged through them at this meeting. Thanks to Jake for sharing this priceless moment with us.

WARNING: This post might be graphic for some people, so if you don't like too see it go back now!!





You sure about that? his hand is larger than the skull. I know they would be smaller w/o the flesh and carnage, but still.. that seems smaller than  normal.. whatever though.

Remember dead body's swallow up after a while. his other hand looks less big.
more odd is the distance between head and body, for a neck it should be too far from his shoulders.
The might did ad a skull later for propaganda reasons, and placed the arm in front of the neck so you don't see it's fake. but moving a limb of a dead person is very hard! it stiffs up so you might need to brake it.

It's not the first picture I have seen with a full visible skull.

for example this one:
(http://www.warhistorian.org/blog1/images/1865-1916-trench-dead.jpg)
I understand in a muddy dirty conditions with rats everywhere a body might rot quicker, but that fast?
Maybe gas helps rotting it faster?

This photo however looks more like a body that is rotting, although in a strange way?

edit: After google-ing:

Nairobi/Mogadishu - Dutch marines freed a German container ship that had been seized by pirates off the Somali coast, a spokesman for the European Union's anti-piracy Atalanta naval taskforce said.
The MS Taipan was steaming from Mombasa, Kenya, to Djibouti when the pirates attacked around 500 nautical miles east of the Somali coast, the spokesman said.
The Taipan crew made radio contact with the EU task force. When it became clear that the ship would not be able to escape the pirates, the crew was instructed to shut down the engines to make the vessel unmanoeuvrable. Crew members then took shelter in a saferoom, and warships patrolling the Gulf of Aden were alerted to the Taipan's plight.
The Dutch frigate Tromp Lynx was the first to arrive. After a failed attempt to negotiate with the pirates, task force commanders ordered the Taipan retaken by force, and the Dutch crew boarded.
A firefight erupted, and one Dutch marine was wounded, according to the Defence Ministry in The Hague. Ten pirates were captured, and the 15-member Taipan crew was unharmed.

Hr.Ms.Tromp takes part of EU-Operation Atlanta, In total there are now 143 pirates been disarmed by European vessels. 73 of those where done by the crew and boarding teams of the Hr.Ms.Tromp.

MG 42 beat gay MG3  :P
Gay MG3 would most definitely beat a MG42.
i would love to see the MG42 compete vs modern MG's though

i think only the FN MAG, MG3 and PKM would be a worthy competitor


I somehow think the mg42 would win....

Also, as for the m60, there would be no quarrel between hat and the mg42.  The m60 has a slow rate of fires and is notoriously unreliable....
In many ways exept the ease of mounting them on Armoured fighting vehicle's. In this, tbh, the FN MAG and PKM would win

And the M60? HA!
Their is a reason the US adopted the FN MAG

if a FN MAG and a M60 fired 50 000 rounds, the FN MAG would have a MRBS (MRBS, jams that can be cleared within minutes) Around 3000 rounds fired. THe M60= only 800
MRBF, such as a part breaking happend between 7000 rounds fired for the MAG. The M60 at 1670 Rounds!

The minimum desired was 850 MRBS and  2700 MRBF. The FN MAG outperformed that requirment triple.
I know a now retired Belgian army machine gunner. And he got his hands on many machine guns. He once said to me= If i would be dropped right now in hostile territory, and i could choose one Machine gun, i would probaly picked a FN MAG 58,MG3 or a PKM.
When i asked him about the MG42, he replied =Do you have one?can i have it? He then told his experience of the MG42. he LOVED the MG. And he is currently on a mission to legally aquire one.


AND CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WTF THIS IS?PORTABLE RAILGUN?

Yes, i did some reading on it and you are correct, altough to soldiers on Okinawa it was known as the T3 with T120 scope.

Also it was even used in the beginning of the Vietnam conflict, but quickly fased out.

Here comes a long story but I thought it fitted better here then creating a new thread...

(http://www.dn.se/polopoly_fs/1.1071420.1270050667!image/88793637.jpg_gen/derivatives/article-landscape/88793637.jpg)

The man to the right closest to the camera, is Sean Flynn. The son of famous actor Erroll Flynn. The place is South Vietnam and the year is 1968

A few years ago he tried to follow in his fathers footsteps and become a famous actor but got tired of it and then began as a freelancing journalist in Vietnam when America started getting more and more involved in the conflict

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/ba/Sonofcaptainblood1.jpg)

(http://www.dn.se/polopoly_fs/1.1071429.1270052927!images/667109477.jpg)

He quickly made a name for himself as a fearless journalist but also for his aggressive drinking and drug abuse

The picture above is a picture of Erroll Flynn in the Hollywood epic "Captain Blood" and the picture above that's the sequel with Sean in the lead.

(http://www.dn.se/polopoly_fs/1.1071425.1270051831!images/3528878492.jpg)

During a trip to Cambodia for a story they got stopped by guerrilla soldiers on a road.

What happened after that have always been a mystery, there has been many speculations regarding what happened that night. Seans mother Lili Damita spent huge amounts of money trying to find his remains without any success.

Now, 40 years later the mystery resolves. Some British folks have found the remains in Cambodia and witnesses who remember a tall blond man being shot in the 1970's by the guerrillas

Seans 53 year old sister is still waiting for the analysis from Hawaii to confirm that it is Seans remains they found in Cambodia, but judging from the witnesses and the time and the place, it's Sean.


To end this little story I'll end it with a beautiful tune from The Clash called just that: Sean Flynn

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSWUKOPTt2g

(http://www.pythiapress.com/letters/images/war14.jpg)

Photo taken 2 hours before the disappearance


Some people also say that Sean Flynn was the inspiration for Dennis Hopper's character in Apocalypyse Now. Some say Tim Page was the inspiration but anyhow, here's a clip of Dennis doing his thing in the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TAixFYnDh4

Not really a war zone, but this illustrates the difference between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. There are pretty much no trees whatsoever left in Haiti, all of them having been burnt for charcoal, and the ensuing degradation of the terrain has also been similarly impressive.

A formation of Heinkel He.70's of the Condor Legion in Spain.

Originally designed as a transport plane for Lufthansa, it was significantly faster than nearly all fighters at the time of its production in 1932, It even set 8 speed over distance records.
It has been said that the He 70 was an inspiration or influence for the Supermarine Spitfire's elliptical wings
and was also sent to Japan for inspection and inspired the development of the Aichi D3A Val light bomber

No i do not, but you see destroyed soviet stuff all the time, do you get off on stuff like that? People died in those just like in this. For me there is no difference, just the annoyance of the complete lack of pictures of destroyed allied stuff.

At least in the WW2 picture of the day tread you see both allied and axis tanks that where taken out, here it seems that allied has some huge bias and can not be shown in a weak position.

And at least i post pictures of actual war and there results, like it says in the rules of the tread.

EDIT: A second picture, for those who don't want to see pictures of our side losing.

I don't know WaW]hOMEr_jAy if anyone got seriously hurt. The spall liner did get breached if you look carefully, and you can see clear shrapnel hits in the interior. Also i THINK that what you see is the Left (breached) and Right side (damaged) of the passenger compartment. So the passengers in between would probably be full off shrapnel. Dousn't mean they are dead tough, there own kevlar and helmet (if they were wearing that) probably would have stopped a lot of it.

The front of an ACH-47A in the vietnam war.

The ACH-47A carried five M60D 7.62x51 mm machine guns or M2HB .50 caliber machine guns, provided by the XM32 and XM33 armament subsystems, two M24A1 20 mm cannons, two XM159B/XM159C 19-Tube 2.75" rocket launchers or sometimes two M18/M18A1 7.62x51 mm gun pods, and a single M75 40 mm grenade launcher in the XM5/M5 armament subsystem (more commonly seen on the UH-1 series of helicopters)

Not many where built, but one survives.

Not many where built, but one survives.

Four were built, three were destroyed in Vietnam, one in a ground collision with a standard Chinook, one shot its front rotor blades off during a gun run (the mount of one of the 20mm's shook itself loose and fired upwards). The third was destroyed by NVA mortars on the outskirts of Hue during the Tet offensive following a force landing after taking small arms fire.

The Guns A Go-Go was an impressive bird but the development of the AH-1G Hueycobra made it rather pointless.
The same could be said from the Armed versions of the UH-1 Huey's. Yet both where found deadly and way more versatile then the AH-1G

(http://www.incolor.inetnebr.com/iceman/data/lndryday.jpg)

UH-1C Huey "Easy rider" over vietnam. These "Huey gunships" or "Hogs" where used as escorts for the regular Huey's. Origenally used as a stopgap for the AH-1, they where well used untill the end of the war, mostly because of their versatility of roles and weapons.

Examples of weaponary include 2X rocket pods + 2 7.62MM Gatling guns. 2x rocket pods + 4-6 .50 CAL.
 Basicly almost everything to a 7.62MM machine gun, to a 30MM autocannon, to a 40MM grenade launcher could be added to the UH-1C. Wich was not the case for the AH-1G

Guarding inner perimeter. Very strict, they had to hold EVERYONE at gunpoint with several people while papers were being checked. It was double fenced meaning you drove in, you were then locked in, checked, and then let out again on the other side. Lots of very high ranking people passed there. Note the Thompson M1A1 in his hands.

Did he make it?

A SOLDIER underwent a five-hour brain op to remove a high-explosive bullet - which could have blown his head off at any moment.Army surgeons donned BODY ARMOUR after the Afghan man was rushed in following a bomb blast. Non-essential staff were evacuated when a scan on what was thought to be just shrapnel revealed it to be a 2½in incendiary round. The Taliban bullet, containing 2oz of high explosives. was powerful enough to have killed the entire surgical team. But the brave US medics succeeded in delicately extracting it during the marathon operation at Bagram air base, Afghanistan.

Their unnamed patient - a member of the Afghan National Army - suffered serious brain injury but was recovering last night.

Relieved Sgt William Carter, a member of the surgical team, admitted: "It was a real concentrated effort on everyone's behalf to ensure that we were all safe - and the patient was safe as well." Radiologist Lt Col Anthony Terreri, whose scan revealed the bullet, said: "Initially I thought it was a spent end of some sort of larger round. Then I saw that it was not solid metal on the inside."

The military hospital went into immediate lockdown and bomb disposal experts were called.

After the op the bullet was taken away to be destroyed. It is the first time such daring surgery has been carried out since the war in Afghanistan began in 2001. In half a century US medical teams have tackled fewer than 50 cases involving the removal of deadly explosives from patients.

Sgt Carter said: "This type of situation is remarkable."

The grand majority of Iraqi tanks where chinese type 59,62 and 69.

They had around 1000 T-62's. Wich was 20% of the tank forces if i recall (as their where 5500 tanks during the first gulf war)

The best tank the iraqi's had, where T-72 "asad babil" tanks. Wich where slightly better equipped(Belgian Night/thermal vision on some and camera's) T-72's but with less armour

Well, yeah, they are tanks by definition.

Also some Chinese rip off's are better then the original, you know that? also pretty much everything in the world is Chinese at the moment so that argument isn't really valid any more since the stuff they rip off are often also made in China.

Tolga,

If the Turks would be attacking a PKK base I am pretty sure you would wait for an opportunity to outnumber your stupidly sleeping enemy and attack in surprise.

If this attack was planned 3 months ahead : Why did you not prepare yourself better for it ?
They can still pick a time of the day with very high chance of fog (like early mornings) and make advantage of it. You would have done the same.

I just smell such a big blind bias ; I understand you think your fight is justified and honorable. But they think the exact same, and have their own arguments why what you are doing is unfair and not honorable (And/or stupid). A befriended photographer went to Kurdistan in Northern Iraq for a few months and did a documentary there...the story always has two sides.

And the turkish-pkk one is not 100% as 'clear' as you think it is yourself. It's messy, complicated and politicized.

Just for you, a pretty Kurd girl :)

A Diemaco C7 (similar to a M16) It sight is set on 300 meters, while a C8 (similar to the M4) is set on 250 meters. those are the optimal settings, but it possible to do higher range.
300 meter head-sized target isn't that hard.
A dutch rifleman trains at 300 meters, but I once had a hit on 800 meters in prone position, you need to aim iirc 14 cm above target. witch is hard. And of course its on Single-shot, impossible on burst.
But most gunfights take place between 200 to 400 meters, for the longer shots you have a SLA(dm). Its hard for us to hit but even way harder for a half trained Taliban fighter.

Aah, makes sense now, it is only useful when you shoot it several times in a short period of times, lets say 10 bullets in 1 minute. The sun heating up the rifle has nothing to do with it like with regular mirages.

This thing amazes me! Now thats strong structure

You'll be amazed what an A10 can withstand. Since it's a lowflying, slow, ground attack airplane it is likely to get hit by smallarms. So they made sure in their design that it can still fly home with (parts of) the wing missing, only one of two engines, one of two tails, landing gear damaged and hydraulic systems damaged.

(http://www.centcom.mil/images/stories/090723greece.jpg)


Quote
Humanitarian help from the Hellenic Composite Battalion in Afghanistan (ΤΕΣΑΦ) toKabul’s deaf-mute school started in March 2009. 250 children are attending the school, which is
located in the center of Kabul. On a weekly basis (every Saturday) a number of approximately 10 students, some representatives and some professors are hosted by the Battalion.

During the visits lunch is provided to the Afghan kids and their chaperons who have the opportunity to enjoy video projects about geographic, historical and civilization information with the Battalion personnel. Afghan kids have fun with the ΤΕΣΑΦ’s entertainment means playing soccer, ping-pong, board games etc.

School gifts are presented to the kids and commemorative presents to their teachers. On May 19th 2009, Greek Battalion’s Commander and some officers visited the aforementioned school where they donated 21 marker boards, soccer balls and they provided food goods for the coverage of  school needs.

The photo is scanned from an old book I got from my grandmother. It´s part of a series and contains articles of German WW1 press articles. The books are full of propaganda, but also contain tons of images and articles and are called "Illustrated history of the World War". I´m not sure when the books were printed, but they´re pretty old.

A German Wiesel "weapon carrier" armed with a TOW wire-guided anti-tank rocket in Afghanistan, I think in 2006. They were withdrawn but there are plans to send them back to Afghanistan because the TOWs are pretty succesful in penetrating the thick mud walls of local compounds where OMF usually hide behind. In the last two years the situation in German-controlled Northern Afghanistan, especially Kunduz area has slowly escalated and transformed the area into a fighting zone. Soldiers and politicians call for long for more heavier weapons in order to stand a chance against OMF, especially since the Bundeswehr has led and will lead numerous offensive operations in order to drive the OMF away and establish FOBs in the disputed areas.

With result is that we our largest firepower atm is 12.7MM and 90MM guns..

ELBO Kentaurus

Kentaurus is an Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle (AIFV) designed and developed by the Greek vehicle builder ELBO. Its history is connected with the need for an advanced AIFV by the Greek Armed Forces.

After aborted efforts including Leonidas-2 variants and other attempted improvements and joint developments, ELBO worked entirely on its own, on a new design according to the specifications given at the time by the Greek Army. The resulting AIFV developed by the Greek company, named 'Kentaurus' was officially introduced in the Defendory Arms Exhibition in Athens in 1998, and at that time was one of the most advanced AIFV's in the world. It features a 420hp MTU Diesel engine, 30 mm EBO cannon and 7.62 mm machine-gun (built on Mauser and Rheinmetall designs), Pyrkal smoke-grenade launchers, Toxotis computerized fire control system and KUKA turret. The crew is 3+8, maximum speed (street) is 75 Km/h and maximum weight is 19.8 tons. However, despite successful intensive tests by the Greek army, its approval, and an initial agreement in 2003 for an order of 140 vehicles, its fate is to this date uncertain due to subsequent cutbacks in relevant military spending, and evaluation of cheaper alternatives.

Thee HK417 is designed more for use as a "designated marksman" rifle than an assault rifle, with its increased cost, accuracy, penetrative power and effective range weighed against decreased rate of fire and magazine capacity (although fully automatic fire is selectable).

But on the H&K site its being named an assault rifles.
I have seen Dutch SF also use it in an Assault rifle form.

It could be him trying to land a light support aircraft with bombs on the racks.
Probably had to come in too fast because of the extra load
Probably landed too hard, snapping the flimsy gear.

Probably that ^^

I'm gonna make my Point here,
Tolga I suport you in your opinion.
If that guy was shooting at you hours before, trying to kill you.
You don't mind about the respect you have for the person.
Especially when you know how they threat others. For example:

!!!! WARNING graphic image !!!!

(http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/262/8sep06kakrak018.jpg)

This kit was hang by the Taliban then shot, after that they put an IED in his body.
He helped Dutch forces building a school witch he afterwards attended.
They put him there to scare us, find him take him down the tree and hope we would not noticed the damn IED on him.

If you have been in a wartime situation, you gonna look a whole lot different to dead body's.
I understand the posing thing is maybe a bit overdone. But I also have tons of photos we took for reports.
Happy the Taliban take the dead with them most of the time, so we don't have too clean up the mess like Tolga have to. And sorry that I say so..

but a person/relative that died of cancer cant be compared to a person who died trying to take your live.

British Corporal Tony Galacki (R), of 40 Commando Royal Marines, carries the newly issued 'Sharpshooter rifle' next to Marine Ross Williamson in Afghanistan’s Helmand Provine June 6, 2010. The first new infantry combat rifle introduced to British forces in 20 years, the semi-automatic Sharpshooter fires a larger and longer range 7.62 mm round than the standard weapon. The Ministry of Defence ordered 400 of the rifles from US firm Lewis Machine and Tool as an urgent requirement, in response to longer range small arms battles in Afghanistan. Picture taken June 6, 2010.

FN FAL Greece: Adopted the FAL and FALO under license by the Pyrkal factories before using Hellenic Arms Industry-made G3A3s. This move was due to lack of support by the Greek government on Pyrkal. It was in use with the Greek special forces and the IV Army Corps in the Evros region from 1973 to 1999. The FAL was replaced in 2000.

The F-104 gets my vote for "crappiest jet fighter America has ever produced."


I would vote for the Yak-38. All the maneuverability problems of the F-104 (which was at lest fast) plus stupidly short range (something like 20 minutes IIRC).

They had a range of 1300KM

the Yak's true problem was the limited payload. It couldnt carry only 1000KG max, but in hot conditions this was barely or never achieved.
All of its problems where solved with the Yak-141. But it never enterd production due to end of cold war + not really a need for VTOL aircraft. SU-27,33 and MIG 29 and others where showing excellent performance onboard russian aircraft carriers.

Either 1300KM range for yak 38 and no payload, or only 400KM with barely any payload

This is an Austro-Hungarian soldier. Note the different style of hat. (He is junior enlisted, non NCO, but it illustrates the different type of hat that issued by Austria-Hungary.)

Can anyone identify this gun? I'm just curious how old it is and whether it is eastern or western made. I took the screenshot from a coverage about somalia. Seems to be the best the so called government troops got over there. So, does anyone know what ancient thing we got here?

Thats right, 2 nights ago 250 members of PKK snuck in and attacked a station of 40 soldiers.. 12 dead on our side 19 (or more) on their side, another Operation in N Iraq possible :P

Worked with some pretty bearded US, I'm tellin ya ;D!
Anyways everyone is allowed to grow beards with my units on deployment, but back home there are still strict rules. thats how it should. Its a good thing that army's  change there rules to blend in more with the Culture of the country in witch they deploy.

In the first part of the war Taliban and locals used to call the SF personal, "Beard mans". Every normal personal still shaved every morning, which made the SF personal distinguished because of there wild look.

That is a Greek Leo apparently repainted for parade or something (you can See its Greek from the Flag on the side.) Or a newly completed one..

(R)F-4 E Phantom II / PI2000

This aircraft started it's long career in the air forces of numerous countries with the fighter designation F-110A in 1962. The Phantom has seen an extraordinary amount of improvements, all inspired by it's performance in the Vietnam conflict. The F-4 currently serves in the Hellenic Air Force as a multi-purpose fighter, as well as in reconnaissance roles (RF-4). A number of these aircraft have undergone major modifications (Peace Icarus 2000) by DASA of Germany, thus making them the most advanced Phantoms to ever fly.

I believe their was also an account when a stuka coming in for an emergency landing, just behind enemy lines, a Artillery round exploded just underneath the plane, causing it to crash. Later on they found out that the only working artillery gun on that moment was a Soviet 122MM M1931/37

And here is the succesor to that model=

Pic from my basic training. We had a 3-day "EAKK"-training where we spent the time patrolling our operational area, looking for IEDs, UXOs, talking to "locals", guarding the checkpoint to our companies camp and patrolling the camp all with not much sleep and extremely hot temperatures. That was especially a pain in the you-know-where as we had to wear flak jackets when outside the camp...I drank so much but yet didn´t have to urinate because I sweated all the water our out. Atleast we slept in old ammo bunkers  where it was pretty cool inside.
This scene shows the 3rd squad of my plattoon maning the checkpoint. We often had scenarios where we had to search cars or individuals for weapons and explosives or got shot at and had to react. On our first patroll outside the base I nearly triggered an IED but fortunately the guy behind me saw the thin wire and so we were able to call the EOD guys and they could "disarm" it (a squad from another platoon actually triggered it which caused a small explosion. Of course they´re DIs werent happy at all ^^). The checkpoint (only a small part here) was quite complex and had a lane where we searched cars, alert posts with machine guns etc.

(http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/1747/aga09016.jpg)

The whole training was pretty cool because it actually had a practical use especially with todays "peace-keeping" missions like in Kosovo or Afghanistan (although especially the Kunduz area develops more and more into a battlefield nowadays).

no, only T54 and 55s. T72s are still in reservist service.

But...that thing is not T-72 ??? Turret and hull are all wrong. And by my understanding, T-72's have been either scrapped or sold as spare parts for Czech Republic. Let us compare shall we?

This is the only known picture of an action which led to the Medal of Honor being awarded. Taken at the Battle of Kham Duc, South Vietnam, May 12 1968.

Quote
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Lt. Col. Jackson distinguished himself as pilot of a C-123 aircraft. Lt. Col. Jackson volunteered to attempt the rescue of a 3-man USAF Combat Control Team from the Special Forces camp at Kham Duc. Hostile forces had overrun the forward outpost and established gun positions on the airstrip. They were raking the camp with small arms, mortars, light and heavy automatic weapons, and recoilless rifle fire. The camp was engulfed in flames and ammunition dumps were continuously exploding and littering the runway with debris. In addition, eight aircraft had been destroyed by the intense enemy fire and one aircraft remained on the runway reducing its usable length to only 2,200 feet. To further complicate the landing, the weather was deteriorating rapidly, thereby permitting only one air strike prior to his landing. Although fully aware of the extreme danger and likely failure of such an attempt. Lt. Col. Jackson elected to land his aircraft and attempt to rescue. Displaying superb airmanship and extraordinary heroism, he landed his aircraft near the point where the combat control team was reported to be hiding. While on the ground, his aircraft was the target of intense hostile fire. A rocket landed in front of the nose of the aircraft but failed to explode. Once the combat control team was aboard, Lt. Col. Jackson succeeded in getting airborne despite the hostile fire directed across the runway in front of his aircraft. Lt. Col. Jackson's profound concern for his fellow men, at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Air Force and reflect great credit upon himself, and the Armed Forces of his country.

He is right you know. It is like the german biased people on this forums who think their german army was superior on all levels and took down 50 allied soldiers and 25 allied tanks down before they even took fire.
Just as you go to an american forum, wich will ONLY show pictures of destroyed iraqi tanks, failed terrorist bombings and dead terrorists. They claim THEY are right and they alone, and if you are not supporting them, you are against them and against freedom and all the other bullcrap that comes out of their mouth.

Being a member of the US public, I can say that they do show those pics, and every casulty that is taken in Afghanistan and Iraq gets reported, along with pictures of the person and their family and such.  So no, we do know the cost of war.


Btw, last I checked, we won Iraq.   ::)
I think the pics you see are more like coffins (like pic 1) with a nice picture of the people in the coffin while they where still alive. I doubdt you see pictures like pic 2.

I did not add the caption on this, i believe it should not be there but it is so sorry


And you won iraq? Then why are you still there? You did not win Iraq until you completely leave it and it is a healthy selfsubstaining country. And that will take many, many more years.


Up untill here was what i think the us people see. Please tell me what is wrong in what i say, what do you really see? I only recieve CNN here and all i do on that is watch the news sometimes and watch Stewart (love the guy :p)

Should the public really see a picture of their soldiers with ripped off arms and legs? I mean really, the pictures doesnt prove anything. Even if they saw the picture, they would rant about it on some forum and carry on. On paper the US has won in Iraq, but the occasional bomb or shootout will occur (which country DOESNT have shootouts or bombs?) 'Yeah, lets go show pictures of dead soldiers to our comrades, that'll fix things'

And since I HAD to post, I will contribute another pic (blame yourselves, not me :))

PKK arent the only ones pulling off ambushes.

Monitors engage Confederate batteries on Sullivan's Island, Charleston, South Carolina. Photographed from one of the Confederate emplacements, the ships are identified as (from left to right): Weehawken, Montauk  and Passaic. The monitor on the right appears to be firing its guns. Date is given as 8 September 1863, when other U.S. Navy ships were providing cover for Weehawken, which had gone aground on the previous day. She was refloated on the 8th after receiving heavy gunfire from the Confederate fortifications.

I could see some plus compared to the M4. (Although the M4 is more versatile).
Its lighter and I heard the bullit velocity is higher as the on of an m4. (mondingssnelheid).
It should penetrate every vest within 200 meters, so they say.
Also the caliber is better then 9mm like alot of smg's use. For CQB it should be a fine weapon i geuse.

YPR is a fine vehicle, but needs very very very veryyyyyyy much maintenance.
They served well, but the Cv90 is in most aspects so much better.
YPR's are old, they brake down very often, just becouse they served there time.
I once drove from DW to TK, and they broke down 6 times.. wich twice was mine.
(first my track ran off cose of a broken roadwheel, and second time my whole engine needed to be replaced.)

*Turret :D

We have well over 2000 of these APC's active, they're known as ACV-300 in Turkish service though. But the Army has a tender to replace them, the tender is for somewhere around 4,000 new APC's, basically doubling the fleet, replacement is either Otokar Arma or FNSS Pars.

We Belgians had AIFV-B types wich we produced locally. I spoke to an ex-driver before, he kinda liked the vehicle. The most problems he had where mainly the tracks, roadwheels and suspension. They needed regular maintance or else :/  you drove them aswel, you should now it  ;)

I wil give you some more - points:
-the side and back armor can be penitrated by an AK-47 or PKM with armor pearcing rounds.
-The enginefilters fill up with dust en sand in no time. you have to clean them when you stop.
(note this isnt that easy as it sounds)
-the suspension and roadwheels are just breaking down of aging.
-the bottom of the vehicle is a dead trap for mines
+the 25mm gun with canadian ammo works damn well in Uruzgan.
+we have so manny that we do have allot of spair parts.

And mate beleave me there is a diference between regular maintance and every single spare hour of the day.
We (the gunner and I) where constantly doing maintance while the rest was sleeping, witch ended up in us getting almost no sleep.

But good thing some arabic country bought all of our old ypr's.

Quote
While commonly associated with Nazi Germany, the swastika symbol is more than 3,000 years old. The term "Swastika" was originally the name for a hooked cross in Sanskrit, and swastikas have been found on artifacts, such as coins and pottery, from the ancient city of Troy.

Not only are swastikas associated with ancient Troy, the symbols are found in many other cultures, such as Chinese, Japanese, Indian and southern European. By the Middle Ages, the swastika was a well-known symbol and had many different names, depending on the country. In some cultures, such as in ancient China, the symbol is turned counterclockwise (sauvastika).

Throughout its history, the swastika represented life, sun, power, strength and good luck. In the early 20th century, it was still considered a positive symbol. During World War I, it was found on shoulder patches of members of the American 45th Division and the Finnish air force. Only after the Nazi period did its connotation change.

German nationalists chose to use the swastika in the mid-19th century because it was associated with the Aryan race and Germanic history. At the end of the 19th century, German nationalists used the symbol on periodicals and for the official emblem of the German Gymnasts’ League. By the 20th century, it was a common symbol used in Germany to represent German nationalism and pride, for example, as the emblem for the Wandervogel, a German youth group. Swastikas also were used, however, in anti-Semitic periodicals.

The swastika officially became the emblem for the Nazi Party on August, 7, 1920, at the Salzburg Congress. Describing the new flag in Mein Kampf, Hitler said the swastika symbolized the victory of the Aryan man.

Today the symbol is most commonly associated with Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, neo-Nazis and other hate groups.

Overview

The Swastika has an extensive history. The motif seems to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia. The swastika is used in religious and civil ceremonies in India. Most Indian temples, entrance of houses, weddings, festivals and celebrations are decorated with swastikas. The symbol was introduced to Southeast Asia by Hindu kings and remains an integral part of Balinese Hinduism to this day, and it is a common sight in Indonesia. The symbol has an ancient history in Europe, appearing on artifacts from pre-Christian European cultures. It was also adopted independently by several Native American cultures.


In the Western world, the symbol experienced a resurgence following the archaeological work in the late nineteenth century of Heinrich Schliemann, who discovered the symbol in the site of ancient Troy and associated it with the ancient migrations of Proto-Indo-Europeans ("Aryan" people). He connected it with similar shapes found on ancient pots in Germany, and theorised that the swastika was a "significant religious symbol of our remote ancestors," linking Germanic, Greek and Indo-Iranian cultures. By the early 20th century it was widely used worldwide and was regarded as a symbol of good luck and auspiciousness.

The work of Schliemann soon became intertwined with the völkisch movements, for which the swastika was a symbol of "Aryan" identity, a concept that came to be equated by theorists like Alfred Rosenberg with a Nordic master race originating in northern Europe. Since its adoption by the Nazi Party of Adolf Hitler, the swastika has been associated with fascism, racism (white supremacy), World War II, and the Holocaust in much of the West. The swastika remains a core symbol of Neo-Nazi groups, and is also regularly used by activist groups to signify the supposed Nazi-like behaviour of organizations and individuals they oppose.

A McDonnell-Douglas CF-18 fighter aircraft during a test of the Canadian-made CRV-7 unguided air-to-ground missile by the Aerospace Engineering and Test Establishment in 1985. The CF-18 came into Canadian Forces service in 1982. (DND, 85-921)

The CRV7 is a 2.75 inch (70 mm) folding-fin ground attack rocket produced by Bristol Aerospace in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When it was first introduced in the early 1970s it was the highest performing 2.75 inch rocket (the standard US size) in the world, the first with enough energy to penetrate standard Warsaw Pact aircraft hangars. The CRV7 remains the most powerful rocket to this day, and has slowly become the de-facto  standard for Western-aligned forces, at least outside the United States.

Designated Marksman Rifle. Used as a gap-filler between normal riflemen armed with 5.56mm rifles and the more heavier sniper rifles to give an infantry squad the ability to fire more precise shots on medium ranges where 5.56 rifles would be too inaccurate.

wondering, the DMR for in the German army, his DMR is his primary weapon?
I have been DMR "Sla" for half a year, and my primary weapon would be the Diemaco C7, and on my back there would be a backpak with a Accuracy rifle init. off course that weapon is big and not suitable as a battle rifle.
Title: Re: Picture of the Day (Other eras)
Post by: [WDW]Megaraptor on 17-07-2010, 15:07:11
DMR's are usually semi-auto rifles. Sometimes modified battle rifles are used, such as the US SDM-R (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army_Squad_Designated_Marksman_Rifle).

Combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan has led to a proliferation of all sorts of DMR's in the US military. I see it's now catching on with other countries as well.
Title: Re: Picture of the Day (Other eras)
Post by: Eglaerinion on 17-07-2010, 15:07:46
Accuracy fires a different calibre though, lapua rounds iirc? At least larger than 762.
Title: Re: Picture of the Day (Other eras)
Post by: hOMEr_jAy on 17-07-2010, 16:07:50
Our G22 built by AI fire .300 WInMag (7.62mmx67), which gives it more range than the standard 7.62 NATO.
Actually the usage of DMRs in the German army is somewhat dubious. We don´t have any official order on how to equip and use DMRs. For example each Jäger Kompanie (light infantry) has a group of snipers, who can be equipped with G3s but except for that I haven´t found anything official that regulates DM. AFAIK the infantry units in Afghanistan simply took G3s they had in their depots and use them now in squads, but how many are used and what other weapons these DM carry, I can´t tell. Judging from photos I´ve seen it looks like they carry only G3s, but that´s just a guess (not that you´d need yet another gun that weights you down! ^^). Too bad I´ll never go to Afghanistan so unless someone has some first-hand experience we can only interprete what we see on photos.

lol raptor i just told ya, I have been a DMR, no need to explain what it is. And yes the accuracy use the lapua magnum round witch is .338. but the rifle itself is uses in the same function as an DMR. just like the germans use the G3 and the Americans the M-14.
Our special forces used a special modified scoped FAL for a while but this was soon replaced.

And needed like an hour of exposure (ok, probably less, but still a lot)

The camera seems to be in a safe position if you ask me, between those 2 hills, out of sight for all meaning that only a lucky shot could have hit them.

So it could go both ways, although i think that just post battle is most likely.

Delta Force used to train for hostage rescue by using other Delta Force people as the "hostage" which was being held as a human shield by the target dummy. Each guy had to take turns being the hostage and having .45ACP rounds flying inches past his face.

Then, the inevitable happened and someone got killed, so they stopped doing it.

Real World Facts about the Su-47 Berkut

Maiden Flight: September 25, 1997
Powered by: Dual Lyulka AL37FU engines. (Prototypes utilized dual aviadvigatel D-30F6 afterburning turbofans with thrust vectoring)
Range: 3, 300 km
Max. Speed: 1600 KmH in tests, predicted 2710 KmH in service.
Armament: 1 30 mm GSh-30-1 cannon and 14 hardpoints for a variety of AA and AG munitions.

     The Berkut is one of the most curious and powerful aircraft today. Not many aircraft can boast forward swept wings, high speeds, heavy armaments, and large dog fighting capabilities. The original Berkut that was produced was intended as a technology demonstrator, but Sukhoi wants to market it. Actually, it is thanks to Sukhoi that this aircraft was finished at all, as you will read below.

     In 1983, the Soviet High Command decided to order their air force to develop a powerful forward-swept wing fighter. But a small problem arose, nothing big, just that the entire USSR dissolved. Since the country collapsed, funding was stalled and delayed. This is where Sukhoi Avionics comes in. Sukhoi saw potential in this aircraft, and funded it. Since the USSR had collapsed, Sukhoi was funding the entire project, which wasn’t cheap. In America, a fighter that looks similar to the Su-47 but half as big and painted white, the Grumman X-29, had been built. However, unlike Grumman and their X-29, Sukhoi intended the Berkut to be more than a technology demonstrated. They wanted to see it as a standard service fighter.

     High costs arose, so Sukhoi put their own touches on the Berkut. It is aproximately the same size of the Su-35 Superflanker. The landing gear, forward fuselage and vertically-pointed tails were borrowed from Sukhoi’s highly successful Su-27 Flanker series. The Berkut, however, although it isn’t a total stealth fighter, has some very nice stealth capabilities. To start with, we have the internal weapons bays, you may look under the Berkut and wonder where the weaponry is, but don’t worry. It’s in small bays under the aircraft and on the sides of the fuselage. However, the aircraft can also carry small wingtip-mounted AA missiles for extra firepower, but at the cost of stealth. It has a reduced radar signature and is coated with layers of radar absorbing materials.
http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/s37/images/img6.jpg
     The forward swept wings present many advantages. It means delayed stall, higher maximum lift, reduced bending moments, and it can perform incredible maneuvers without the wingtips generating resistance and stalling the aircraft. However, good things come with bad things too. Forward swept wings have one fault, and one fault only, but it’s a biggie. They generate such a vicious twist that if constructed with conventional or extra strength materials, they’re going to blow right off the plane. So, this is why forward-swept aircraft only were usable when composite materials were discovered.

     The Su-47 can fit advanced Russian radars and other electronics. It has a fly-by-wire system as well. Actual service models will get folding wings, though not because they will be navalized carrier models. The wingspan is large, and Russian hangars need to fit the aircraft inside. The Berkut can maneuver at subsonic speeds, a big advantage in combat. It can maintain control and most important stability at a high AOA (Angle of Attack). This way, as soon as a pilot defeats one target, he can turn the aircraft to engage the next as quickly as possible. Also, this baby is an STOL (Shorter Take Off/Landing) fighter. The wings generate so much lift that a long runway isn’t necessary.

     The wings are made of 90% composite materials, and the canards are mounted in such a way to make the aircraft turn on a dime. The Russians were reluctant to raise the aircrafts speed past mach 1.6, because even with composites.

The name Cojone Eh on the tank barrel identifies this as the Abrams lost during the April 5, 2003 "Thunder Run" into Baghdad.

According to the book Thunder Run by Mark Zucchino, the Abrams was hit in the rear armor by a 90mm recoilless rifle, which started a fire in the engine block. None of the crew were injured. They tried to put out the fire (which is what you see in that picture) but the hot engine kept re-igniting dripping fuel from a ruptured line. They decided to destroy the tank and move on to prevent its capture by the Iraqis.

To destroy the tank, they threw thermite grenades down the hatches, then another Abrams shot the tank with a few 120mm rounds. Then after the crew had moved on an A-10 put a Maverick through the roof.

Here's what it ended up looking like:
(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o265/WDW_Megaraptor/thunder20run20220battle20cojone20eh203.jpg)
Note that it's still recognizable as an Abrams, after being hit by a 90mm round, engine fire, thermite grenades, internal ammo explosion, several 120mm rounds and a Maverick missile.

Compare this to the Iraqi Asab Babil (license built T-72), where an armor-piercing hit tended to cause an internal ammo explosion that blew off the turret. Here's an example outside Baghdad in 2003:

Everything else in your post was reasonable, except this.

Merkava is slow as crap because it's a massive block of armor with treads, and a hollow space for the crew.

Thing was designed with crew protection as its first goal, and mobility second. This is because Israel has a small population and therefore can't afford to take massive casualties in a war. They are also in a fundamentally defensive posture versus their neighbors so mobility wasn't as big a concern.

Merkava is probably the best tank for urban warfare due to its massive armor and defensive systems. But in the open desert? I'll give the edge to the much faster and more mobile Abrams.

Has nothing to do with its shape. The reason the T-72 is so pathetically outdated is due to its steel armor rather than the composite armor seen on most modern tanks. In addition, its fire control system has much to be desired. In short, an out of date tank.


BTW, @Battlefieldfan45,

The Abrams has been updated several times, everything from its armor to its main gun (increase in caliber from 105 to 120 if my memory serves me well).

Yes, further decreasing its criminally inefficient engine. Also puts more stress on its inferior suspension system. The Challenger II is notably superior in both these categories. Indeed, the Challenger II seems to be superior in just about every aspect compared to the Abrams: more fuel efficient engine, better suspension and cross country speed, better gun, better fire control system, better armor, and, as was mentioned earlier, has a tea maker.


It is a slick lookin tank though.

Indeed, I do believe the Challenger II is the best MBT out there.

During the war in Iraq only one Challenger II was destroyed in combat...by another Challenger II. Only twice was the Challenger II hull penetrated by enemy fire, once by an RPG-29 and once by a shaped charge IED. In other cases Challenger II's survived direct hits by 70 RPGs in one battle, or even direct hits from MILAN ATGMs.

I think you're all simplifying things too much. Pretty much all Western MBT's have very similar levels of protection, mobility and firepower. I think the defining factors are crew training and experience. As good as the Leopard 2 is I can't think of any tank on tank combat (as far as I know of) in which it's crews have took place in so I would have to consider the Abrams and Challenger 2 to be more formidable opponents, due to their crews. Of course this is all pure conjecture on my part....

Their is a huge diffrence. European tanks use Diesel engines wich are reliable, fuel efficient, multi-fuel and have very good performance

The Abrams has a gas turbine engine wich consumes 2-3 times more then a diesel engine, has only slightly better acceleration, uses jet fuel wich is extremely flammable, is an unreliable engine, infantery cannot hide behind the abrams because of the exhaust and they arent made anymore but refurbished

I dont really know much about modern tanks, but i do understand the engine problems

I disagree strongly. During the first invasion of Iraq, American, British, even French tanks completely outclassed their Iraqi counterparts, who lacked night vision, reliable auto-loaders, effective fire control, gyro stabilized guns, and countless other problems. No matter how good the crews were trained, they still had no chance. That is why they were butchered.

Don't forget, the IDF defeated Arab armies in 1967 and 1973 when those Arab armies had up-to-date Soviet bloc tanks and the IDF was using a hodgepodge of Centurions, AMX-13s, M48s and up-gunned Shermans. The M60 was the only modern tank in the Israeli arsenal in those wars. Also by 1973 the Syrian and Egyptians had a clear advantage in night vision (the Israelis didn't have it, the Syrians did) and ATGMs.

It wasn't until Lebanon in 1982 that Israeli tanks were clearly superior to their opposition.

The M60 was the only modern tank in the Israeli arsenal in those wars. Also by 1973 the Syrian and Egyptians had a clear advantage in night vision (the Israelis didn't have it, the Syrians did) and ATGMs.

It wasn't until Lebanon in 1982 that Israeli tanks were clearly superior to their opposition.



Conflicts that took place 40 years ago are recent history now? Have you seen the advances in military tech since then?

There's one thing to always remember about this talk of which tank is better:

"The man is the steel. The tank is just metal."--IDF tanker's saying.


 even French tanks
I love the natural anti-French prejudice that literally everyone shows.

My point was that crew training is important and can overcome technical inferiority. You argued that that's not the case, and training can't overcome technical inferiority.

Your example was Desert Storm which involved highly trained troops in state of the art tanks versus poorly trained troops in obsolete tanks. Plus, it was fought in the open, flat desert where technical differences are magnified.

My counter example was to point to a situation where better trained troops with inferior tanks defeated a lesser-trained force with better equipment, and why the IDF has an institutional memory of this.

Agreed on training, I'm sorry. That was rude of me not to clarify.


However, training only gets you so far. At some point it doesn't matter how good your soldiers are if they are completely outclassed. You take the best brigade of any army of 1900 with the best general of 1900, pit it against say...Idano, an armored regiment of a mid-WW2 armored regiment with someone who is at least worth the bird on his collar. You will see the former slaughtered.


My point was it didn't matter how good or bad the Iraqi troops were, they never stood a chance due to their inability to stay alive on a modern battlefield.


So my country is even more guilty of this, as the United States hasn't fought a pitched battle against a comparable foe in quite some time. Not to say that it is a bad thing that we aren't picking fights with the big kids anymore.

It's real alright and you're very right about things not going to plan.

During Operation Granby a Centurion AVRE was said to have caught fire which then spread to the munitions, resulting in the massive blast you see here. The fact that it caught fire meant that people were able to try and escape and as a result there were, amazingly, only 4 minor injuries from the blast.

A rumour was that the crew were cooking breakfast on the engine deck. Not a great way to start your day if that's true!

Problem with the PzH2000 in Afghanistan are the temperatures. For example, inside our Marder IFVs temperatures can easily reach 80 degrees Celcius (!) and I think it won´t be cooler inside a PzH and also you´ve got the loader inside it, no need to put another person inside it. Thus that guy is in the outside, where it´s relatively cool, compared to the cramped interior..

Men from India Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and Afghan Army soldiers step it out toward a helicopter crash during the first day of Operation Thresher in Trek Nawa, Afghanistan, July 23. The men were the first group on foot to make it to the crash site, which was more than three miles away. India Company Marines and Afghan Army soldiers conducted the clearing mission to remove weapons caches, disrupt Taliban activity and interact with the local populace. During the first day of the operation a helicopter crash caused the Marines to temporarily shift their mission and pause the operation. India Company resumed days later and completed the operation July 27.

When they decided that the MG3 was too heavy and long to be carried up in the mountains. This was right around the time the Soviet Union collapsed and Russia owed us money so they had to give us a bunch of weapons and vehicles for free.

Oh, and what I just found:
Another six PzH 2000s are being equipped for what the Bundeswehr refers to as "Afghan climatic conditions" and will be ready for deployment in the first half of 2011.

An undercover special police operative stands next to a horse pulled cart loaded with smuggled cigarettes near Jamu Mare, western Romania, on the border with Serbia, Monday, Aug. 9, 2010. Authorities in Romania say seven people, including a local official, have been detained and accused of smuggling cigarettes from neighboring Serbia by horse and cart. Cigarette smuggling sharply increased in Romania since the government levied extra taxes on tobacco last year.Tobacco companies claim one in three cigarettes is counterfeit or smuggled.

See thats what I asked, seems kind of disrespectful to the Germans, for me at least. A Romanian guy wearing a German uniform, forget the camo im only talking about the flag. And the vest is a light one, so its only ballistic protection is up front :) Thats a step for me though, before it was a light vest strictly for carrying ammo.

Quite the opposite, Siben. Chemical suits were, are, and always will be hated by soldiers for a number of reasons. They are made of air-tight material, so they have no ventilation, a terrible feature to have in the hot Mesopotamian sands. On top of that, they were the wrong camo and extremely bulky.
