Lots of gunnery range and training footage pretending to be WW3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=famepKDTiDQ

Just stumbled across this lovely little story. Can definitely see a number of similar units being formed as the war progresses. https://youtu.be/Lp9KAFLQJ1A

Just did some of my recerts for Act 235 (armed security) and ACT 120 (municipal LE). We were taught this cool carry technique and who is in the video we watched before our practice? None other than Mr. Willis from History's Forged In Fire! This is a technique that can allow you to pick up a disabled comrade SOLO!

Default Happy Halloween Videos

Happy Halloween everyone! Happy Birthday, Targan!

Here are some veteran-produced videos for the holiday...

https://youtu.be/zOMzfdZzqu8

This one's for you Leg... it has a flamethrower kill in it!

https://youtu.be/PiWs1RGrCjo

This one's for you Targan because of [not possessed] Heather and an A10 kill.

https://youtu.be/pjk7QVMMgZs

I finally got the links to work. In my defense, I was being harassed by a distraught 4-year-old who was threatening to hold his breath until he passed out if he didn't get candy! He's currently laying on the floor with eyes closed because I don't negotiate with terrorists...

... I'm admittedly a product of '80s parenting where we were given a bicycle and a buck knife and told "You're on your own until the streetlights come on!"

Enjoy

Swag!

One of my current favorite channels is Tod's Workshop, where old ranged weapons get tested. It's mostly crossbows, but longbows, slings, and even plumbata have showed up at various times. His most recent video is a collaboration with VSO Gun Channel to test guns and crossbows against sandbags. The results were interesting and not what I was expecting.

Wait a minute if this video is correct that would mean the entire battleship re-commission scene in 2012 Movie Battleship is not accurate.

This makes me think that there is more to re commission a battle ship than turning on the lights, cutting anchor chains and lighting the boilers.

Quite a bit more.
Even those ships which have just left service in the past few months will need a LOT of work given it's normal for upgrades and even general maintenance to not be carried out once it's known the ship's getting decommissioned. What's the point of doing more than is absolutely necessary to keep the ship afloat when you know once you reach port it's not going to sea again?

I know this is a bit of a problem with buying used ships too, both military and civilian. Just have to look at the problems the Australian Navy ran into when they purchased the two Newport Class landing ships in the mid 90's. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanimb...orm_amphibious
Note it took five years to get just those two ships ready for service because the engineers kept finding problems which HAD to be fixed.

And those two ships had been in US active service at the time the RAN took possession, and not mothballed.

Default The OstWall

Bit of a renovation project in T2k after NATO finally stops the Pact advance in 1997-98? https://youtu.be/ac_Imt7VUog
Or if not (due mostly to location) construction of a new line of fortifications (probably by both sides once the nukes had wiped out the capability to manoeuvre).

Probably everything in here is a lot closer to the Twilight truth than any remote-turreted Abrams would ever have been.

Of course tons of similar examples these days out of Syria, Mexico, Philippines, pretty much everywhere...

I wonder what the stats on those are...wait, that's supposed to be my job...

Well, I'm pulling the NEI (Not Enough Information) card.

I did notice one improvised APC that looked like sheet steel over a Mack truck, full of 7.62mm and 12.7mm holes. Shouldn't have cheaped out on the armor...

According to Surviving Tanks' PDF on Croatian improvised armor, it's a Tatra 138 6x6 chassis, and the damage is from a 130mm shell. It looks like a lot of these vehicles are still around as memorials.

That makes a lot more sense to me, as it looked more like frag damage then bullet strikes to me.

Still too heavily perforated to be an effective APC...I did download the PDF -- thanks for directing me to it. I now have an idea for a new page for my site.

Very true, at best they look to be second string battle taxis.
