    TERRORIST KILLER us military GAU 19B 50 Cal Gatling Gun
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Oct 27, 2014
    Another great weapon for the US military and us army. Could prove useful in combating terrorists in Iraq and Syria. The GECAL 50, officially designated by the United States military as the GAU-19/A, is an electrically driven Gatling gun that fires the .50 BMG (12.7×99mm) cartridge.

    Technical specifications[edit]
    The GAU-19/A is designed for a linkless feed, but can be fed from a standard M9 linked belt if a delinker feeder is used. The rate of fire is selectable to be either 1,000 or 2,000 rounds per minute. The Humvee armament kit version fires at 1,300 rounds per minute. The average recoil force when firing is 500 pounds-force (2.2 kN). In January 2012, General Dynamics announced they would be delivering a new version designated the GAU-19/B. It provides the same firepower in a lighter platform, weighing 106 lbs.[1]

    History[edit]
    The GECAL 50 was first manufactured by General Electric, then by Lockheed Martin, and now by General Dynamics. Design work began in 1982. Early prototypes had six barrels, but a three-barreled configuration is now standard. The GAU-19/A was originally designed as a larger, more potent version of the M134 Minigun. Due to the loss of nine helicopters in Grenada GE started building prototypes of the weapon in both a three-barreled and a six-barreled configuration. The six-barreled version was designed to fire 4,000 rpm, and could be adapted to fire up to 8,000 rpm. The GAU-19 takes 0.4 seconds to reach maximum firing rate.[2] Soon it was recommended as a potential armament for the V-22 Osprey.[3] The magazine would be located underneath the cabin floor and could be reloaded in-flight. However, plans to mount the gun were later dropped.[4] In 2005, the GAU-19/A was approved to be mounted on the OH-58D Kiowa helicopter. It also could have been used on the Army's now cancelled ARH-70.[5] In January 2012, the U.S. Army ordered 24 GAU-19/B versions for use on helicopters. All were delivered by the next month.[1]
    In 1999, the United States sent 28 GAU-19s to Colombia.[6] Oman is known to use the GAU-19/A mounted on their HMMWVs. The navy of Mexico uses MDH MD-902 series helicopters with the GAU-19/A system mounted for anti-narcotics operations.[7]

    Users[edit]
    Colombia: Used by Drug Enforcement troops, and the Colombian national police
    Japan: Used by Japan Coast Guard, on PC Kagayuki class
    Mexico: Used by the Mexican Air Force and the Mexican Navy in Humvees, UH-60 Black Hawks and the MD Explorer

    Overview of the Honest John 762mm Rocket, from the US Army film training film TF6-3646 "Weapons of the Field Artillery".

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    The MGR-1 Honest John rocket was the first nuclear-capable surface-to-surface rocket in the US arsenal.[notes 1] Designated Artillery Rocket XM31, the first such rocket was tested 29 June 1951 and the first production rounds were delivered in January 1953. The designator was changed to M31 in September 1953. The first Army units received their rockets by year's end and Honest John battalions were deployed in Europe in the Spring of 1954. Alternatively, the rocket was designed to be capable of carrying an ordinary high-explosive warhead weighing 1500 pounds, even though that was not the primary purpose for which it was originally envisioned.

    History and development

    Developed at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, Honest John was a large but simple fin-stabilized, unguided artillery rocket weighing 5820 pounds in its initial M-31 nuclear-armed version. Mounted on the back of a truck, HJ was aimed in much the same way as a cannon and then fired up an elevated ramp, igniting four small spin rockets as it cleared the end of the ramp. The M-31 had a range of 15.4 miles with a 20 kiloton nuclear warhead but was also capable of carrying a 1500 pound conventional warhead. Early tests exhibited more scatter on target than was acceptable when HJ was conventionally armed. Development of an upgraded Honest John, M-50, was undertaken to improve accuracy and extend range. The size of the fins was greatly reduced to eliminate "weathercocking" (the tendency of crosswinds to turn a rocket to face into the wind). Increased spin was applied to restore the positive stability margin that was lost when fin size was reduced. The improved M-50, with the smaller fins and more "rifling", had a maximum range of 30+ miles with a scatter on target of only 250 yards... Honest John was manufactured by the Douglas Airplane Company of Santa Monica, California.

    The M31 consisted of a truck-mounted, unguided, solid-fueled rocket transported in 3 separate parts. Before launch they were combined in the field, mounted on an M289 launcher and aimed and fired in about 5 minutes. The rocket was originally outfitted with a W7 variable yield nuclear warhead with a yield of up to 20 kilotons of TNT (84 TJ) and later a W31 warhead with three variants was deployed with yields of 2 kt (8.4 TJ), 10 kt (42 TJ), or 30 kt (130 TJ) in 1959. There was a W31 variant of 20 kt (84 TJ) used in the Nike Hercules antiaircraft system exclusively. M-31 had a range between 5.5 and 24.8 km (3.4 and 15.4 mi).

    In the 1960s Sarin nerve gas cluster munitions were also available for Honest John launch.

    The 2 basic versions of Honest John were: MGR-1A (M31) was 27 ft 3in long, had an engine diameter of 22.875in, a warhead diameter of 30in (762mm), a span of 104in, weighed 5820 pounds (nuclear), and had a maximum range of 15.4 miles. The Hercules Powder Company X-202 rocket motor was 197.44in long, weighed 3937 pounds, and had 90,325 pounds average thrust. MGR-1B (M50) was 24 ft 10.53in long, had an engine diameter of 22.8in, a warhead diameter of 30in, a span of 56in, weighed 4332 pounds (nuclear), and had twice the range of the M31. The Thiokol composite propellant solid rocket motor had 150,000 pounds thrust.

    Production of the MGR-1 variants finished in 1965 with a total production run of more than 7,000 rockets... Even though HJ was unguided and the first U.S. nuclear ballistic missile, it had a longer service life than all other U.S. ballistic missiles except Minuteman. The system was replaced with the MGM-52 Lance missile in 1973, but was deployed with NATO units in Europe until 1985 and National Guard units in the United States as late as 1982. Conventionally armed Honest John remained in the arsenals of Greece, Turkey and South Korea until at least the late 1990s.

    By the time the last Honest Johns were withdrawn from Europe in 1985, the rocket had served with the military forces of Belgium, Britain, Canada, Denmark (non-nuclear), France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway (non-nuclear), South Korea, Taiwan (non-nuclear), and Turkey...

    This is How Grenade Explosion Looks in Real Life - US Marines Training With Real M67
    Daily Military Defense & Archive



    Published on Feb 13, 2015
    US marines training with real M67 hands grenades (Beginning of the video) and then with practice grenades. Very different from the Call of Duty grenade explosion !

    The M67 grenade is a hand grenade defensive fragmentation used by the Armed Forces of the United States and Canadian Forces (where they are called C13). The M67 grenade is a replacement for the M61 used in Vietnam and the former Mk II used during World War II .

    The M67 can be thrown 40 meters by most soldiers. It has a slow fuse M213 for a period of 3 to 5 seconds. The Shrapnel is produced by the segmentation of the inner shell. However, this segmentation is not effective enough, and sometimes the hull is torn instead of going into small pieces. It has an operating range of 15 meters, and its lethal radius is 5 meters, although some fragments can be sent to more than 230 meters.

    The arming of the pomegranate is done in three steps: the user removes the safety ring and places the spoon (leverage) between his thumb and index finger to remove the pin. At this time, the grenade is still armed and can be regoupillée. Once launched, the internal spring pops the spoon and releases a striker which strikes the primer. The primer will then initiate the detonation of the grenade.

    US Soldiers Shooting the Powerful M3 Carl Gustav Recoilless Rifle - Carl Gustaf M3 MAAWS
    Daily Military Defense & Archive



    Published on Apr 29, 2015
    US soldier shooting the Carl Gustav during live firing training. The M3 Multi-role Anti-armor Anti-tank Weapon System (MAAWS) is the U.S. military designation for the Carl Gustaf M3 recoilless rifle. It is primarily used by USSOCOM special operations forces (SOFs), such as the Army Rangers, Army Special Forces, Marine Raiders, Navy SEALs, JSOC operators, and other forces. When used by the U.S. Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, the M3 is known as the Ranger Anti-tank Weapons System (RAWS).

    In the late 1980s, the Special Operations Forces Modernization Action Plan indicated need for a Ranger Anti-Armor/Anti-Personnel Weapon System (RAAWS) to replace the M67 recoilless rifle in use by the 75th Ranger Regiment. A market survey in 1987 indicated that the Carl Gustaf M3 was the best candidate for satisfying RAAWS requirements. On 29 September 1988, the M3 was selected as the RAAWS from candidate proposals submitted in response to the market survey compiled by ARDEC. A subsequent review of the contractor-supplied fatigue test data determined that the data did not meet U.S. Army requirements. Benét Laboratories conducted fatigue test of 2 tubes to establish an interim safe service life for the weapon. Tests were conducted in 1993. The manufacturer’s recommended life for the weapon was 500 rounds, but bore surfaces showed no indications of erosion until 2,360 rounds. The U.S. Navy SEALs became interested in the program and moved it to a Joint Integrated Product Team. The program name subsequently changed from the RAAWS to the Multi-Role Anti-Armor Anti-Personnel Weapon System (MAAWS).

    Army Rangers found the M3 Carl Gustaf was best employed using a two-man team. One person would carry the launcher and be armed with a pistol for personal protection, and the other would carry 5–6 rounds of ammunition and act as a spotter for the gunner. Although the single-shot AT-4 is lighter and can be carried by one person, a Gustaf team with the heavier recoilless rifle can reload and fire more rounds.

    The M3 MAAWS fires the following ammunition:

    High Explosive Dual Purpose (HEDP) round
    High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) round
    High Explosive (HE) round
    Illumination round
    Smoke round
    Area Defence Munition (ADM) flechette round

    Ukrainian Soldiers In Action Winter Training With NATO. But Are Russian Troops Already Fighting?
    Odo Puiu info



    Published on Dec 24, 2016

    Ukrainian Soldiers In Action Winter Combat Training With NATO.

    US military does not plan to leave the territory of Ukraine. Moreover, they equip their life on Ukrainian bases, ordering vehicles and equipment for gyms from the US.
    This is evidenced by the information about the US Army‘s orders, placed on the open portal of the state purchases of the US. Experts note that it may indicate both the desire of Americans to have a more comfortable life in Ukraine and possible formation of conditions for a more effective system for training of sabotage and terrorist units of the Ukrainian Army.
    In mid-August, the US Department of the Army, which reports to the US Department of Defense, placed an order for equipment for a gym on the government procurement website. US military asked six exercise bikes, two treadmills, and another ten simulators for different muscle groups. This order should go to the Yavorov military training area in Lvov region in Ukraine. A training center, where NATO military instructors train Ukrainian soldiers, is located there.
    On August 30, the US Army placed another tender – this time on 27 cars for rent. Thus, US military needs 13 Toyota Land Cruiser, 8 Mercedes Benz Vito and 6 Ford Transit. It is notes that the number of cars, required by the Army, may be increased and the models can be replaced by equivalents with the same characteristics. The Ukrainian city of Khmelnitsky is named as a dislocation place.
    The interest of US military to the area around Khmelnitsky is explained by the fact that since the beginning of this year, the US Special Forces train the Ukrainian Special Operations Forces on its territory. US Ambassador to Ukraine, Jeffrey Payette, announced this at the end of January.
    The US diplomat explained that representatives of special units of the US Defense Department prepare Ukrainian specialists in different fields, including medicine, building, blasting, communication, technology, as well as teach Ukrainian military sniping.
    Military analyst Alexander Perendzhiev notes that for Russia, this means the same as before: “Americans carried out the external control with respect to Ukraine. And, in principle, if to speak about the Ukrainian Armed Forces, it can be regarded as a sort of branch of the US Armed Forces.”
    “Of course, Americans do not finance or back up them [the Ukrainian Armed Forces] completely, but they provide training, how to resist the so-called ‘Russian aggression’,”the expert added.
    At the beginning of this year, the US handed over to Ukraine communications tools and medical devices in the amount of $23 million. A number of media reported that the US equipment was transferred to military training areas in Yavorov and Khmelnitsky. Instructors from the US also should be sent there for training to work with new equipment.

    Worlds MOST ADVANCED Russian Military Anti Aircraft Missile Technology
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Jan 6, 2017
    An interesting video of the Russian Military anti aircraft missile system some say it is the most advanced in the world. The S-300 (NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble) is a series of initially Soviet and later Russian long range surface-to-air missile systems produced by NPO Almaz, based on the initial S-300P version. The S-300 system was developed to defend against aircraft and cruise missiles for the Soviet Air Defense Forces. Subsequent variations were developed to intercept ballistic missiles.

    Russia Loocks Down Crimea With S-400 Against Ukrainian Air Force: ‘Any Aircraft Will Be Downed”.

    Published on Jan 15, 2017

    Russia Loocks Down Crimea With S-400 Against Ukrainian Air Force: ‘Any Aircraft Will Be Downed”.

    MOSCOW has been given extra protection after a surface-to-air missile regiment, equipped with Russia’s most advanced air defence system, was deployed outside the city.

    The new S-400 Triumph air defence system has been deployed for combat duty in the Moscow region, according to the Russian Defence Ministry.

    Speaking to Russian news agency Interfax, the Defence Ministry’s Department of Information and Mass Communication said: “The SAM combat squads of the Moscow Region aerospace forces have put the new S-400 Triumph air defence missile system into service, and have gone on combat duty for the air defence of Moscow and the central industrial region of Russia.

    “The main task of the anti-aircraft missile troops of the Russian Aerospace Forces is air defence and protecting vital state, military, industry and energy facilities, as well as the Armed Forces troops and transport communications, from aerospace attacks.”

    The new missile system, known as SAM, had been trialled in Kapustin Yar in southern Russia, and following successful testing it was transported to the Moscow region last month.

    A total of four S-400 systems are due to enter service in 2017 after four air defence regiments were re-equipped with the new S-400 system last year.

    The advanced anti-aircraft systems have been providing defence for Russian forces based in Syria since November, after Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered their deployment.

    After their deployment was announced, Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu said the S-400 system allows Russia to “destroy both sea and ground targets”.

    Sea targets can be destroyed from more than 215 miles away, while land targets can be struck from a distance of nearly 280 miles.

    The news comes amid increasing tensions between Russia and the West, with the US sending thousands of tanks to Eastern European borders with Russia to deter any perceived threat from Putin.

    The measures are aimed at reassuring US allies in the region following Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.
    US and Polish forces are expected to participate in a large 'massing' exercise in Poland at the end of the month.

    World's Most Advanced Russian Military Technology Stacks Up Against NATO Hardware.
    Odo Puiu info



    Published on Jan 17, 2017
    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    World's Most Advanced Russian Military Technology Stacks Up Against NATO Hardware.

    1. Tanks. Russia's new Armata battle tank is one of the world's most advanced, with a 125mm cannon capable of firing 10 rounds per minute. It was showcased in Moscow's Victory parade in 2015, and went into mass production this year. More than 2,000 will be in service by 2020.
    ★ Not all of NATO's highly advanced equipment is American, though most is. Germany's Leopard 2A7 battle tank, which recently came into service, is perhaps the world's most well-regarded tank.
    2. Artillery. The 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV is Russia's new showcase self-propelled artillery piece, which was also showcased at the parade in May. It has a 152mm gun turret with a range of up to 70 kilometers which fires 16 rounds per minute.
    ★ The United States' M109A6 Paladin is one of NATO's nearest equivalent weapons, with a 155mm cannon similar to the Koalitsiya-SV. It requires a six-man crew to operate the machine.
    3. Rifles. These new AK-12 Kalashnikov-built rifles are becoming standard-issue across the Russian military, gradually replacing a variety of previous models. It takes 5.45mm rounds, but can be converted to take 7.62mm rounds, like previous Kalashnikov designs.
    ★ Variants of the M16 rifle, which takes 5.56mm NATO rounds, have been standard issue for the US military since 1969. The M16A4, pictured below, is the service rifle of the US Marine Corps.
    4. Fighter jets. Russia's Sukhoi Su-35 is the country's most advanced fighter jet. After test flights five years ago, the planes were first deployed in January this year. They participated in Russia's bombing campaign in Syria.
    ★ The F35 is NATO's latest fifth generation fighter, and is coming into service for parts of the US military this year too. It's slower than the Su-35, and with a shorter range.
    5. Aircraft carriers. The Admiral Kuznetsov, Russia's only aircraft carrier, can carry up to 52 aircraft and is more than 1,000 feet long. It is highly outdated, however.
    ★ In terms of aircraft carriers, the US and NATO have a clear lead. PCU Gerald R. Ford is the world's leading aircraft carrier, and can carry 75 aircraft.
    6. Helicopters. The US-built AH-64 Apache is NATO's premier attack helicopter. It has a range of nearly 300 nautical miles, and is armed with Hellfire missiles.
    ★ Russia's Mi-28 Havoc attack helicopter has a 30mm underslung cannon, and can carry up to four anti-tank missiles.
    7. Bombers. Russia's version of the US B1 bomber, the Tupolev Tu-160M fleet is currently undergoing a modernisation programme, with updated weapons and avionics systems. It's capable of carrying a nuclear weapon.
    ★ The B-1 Lancer is one of the US Air Force's long-serving aircraft. It's got a range of 11,999km, just short of the Tu-160's.
    8. Surface-to-air missiles. Russia's S-300 dates from the Soviet era, initially deployed in the late 1970s but still in service today. It's a long-range surface to air missile, capable of hitting targets up to 150km away.
    ★ The MIM-104 Patriot missile also dates from a similar period to the S-300 and is still in use, with a shorter range than the S-300.
