Speaking of Syria,and Syria being blown to poo poo, a new bomb has been sighted in the Homs region, and I'm buggered if I can figure out what it is, hoping some of you might have a clue. Here's on of the clearer examples of it being used

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HItSz8JhpU

There's more videos of them being used here, and from what I can tell they have parachutes, are dropped in groups of 4-6, and appear to have time delayed fuzes.


I am no expert by any means, but don't they use bombs like that for destroying runways?

Time for some content.

My grandpa passed away last month at 95. He was a seabee in ww2 and was at Guadalcanal. Here are a few of the pictures I have from him. I also have some negatives that I'll try to get developed later.




this was on the back of the last photo, he punched an officer.

Here are 5 men (6, counting the cameraman) standing directly beneath a nuclear detonation to demonstrate how safe nuclear anti-aircraft missiles are, and how it's OK that they'd be exploded over US soil to shoot down soviet bombers.

In theory it was a good idea against a big mass of bear bombers. At the same time we developed nuke torpedoes to take out the SSBNS the Soviets had. "Blue out" is a sonar term I'm glad I only read about.

If it detects an incomming SAM or plane it should CRANK ITS REACTOR UP TO 11 and spew out enough hard rads to fry any electronics or crew.

Or just do that at all times.

Considering there would be absolutely no way to shield the reactor due to weight it would be an all time thing.

I wonder how many guards at the lower enlisted rank are trusted to have ammunition for their weapons. :iiam:

Seriously all I see in that picture is that dirt rear end stache. I'm as far from "SGM UNIFORM HOOAH" as you get, and I think they should be seriously outlawed. The only exception is when you have so much rank and badassness (pilot, or crusty old warrant/SGM) that you can rock a totally out of regs stache of pure respect. Anything short of giving the Army regs the bird and you just look like a pedophile.

Good to see that this modern stealth ship has the good old reliable 5 inch gun.

Oops, it's actually a 155mm (6.1 inch) gun. So slightly larger than some of the guns mounted on ww2 soviet tanks&tds.
