This here thread is for people to wank about military hardware and/or mock the poo poo arms manufacturers around the world are trying to sell and how they try to sell them.

For instance, here is an ad for a really dumb Ghost In the Shell-esque helicopter weapon system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUJ...MiE4xMYwvVAhIAQ

The CGI footage here is an actual promo for the TALOS suit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTYBU4-H9VQ

Mental toughness is the ability to accept the fact that you're human and that you're going to make mistakes -lots of 'em- all your life.

i'm getting a model A-10 for Christmas because i think it's a neat airplane. planes in general are pretty cool submarines and ships too. ground forces are kind of dumb because humvees and tanks are boring compared to everything else

Unfortunately, it's by Lockheed Martin, so the stealth coating comes off in milk.

.50 cal caliber bullets are the only true bullet for any serious military man. personally i would suggest a desert eagle (d-eagle) as a sidearm, if any minorities manage close the gap and get too close

Here is the M47 Dragon, an older US anti-tank system.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmgUZXeTy6I

Instead of using fins to guide it like a regular AT missile, it uses a series of small explosives around its body to alter its course, as you can see in the video. Why anyone thought this was a good idea, is beyond me.
