    US MILITARY POWER in Action with Gatling and Machine Gun Live Fire
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Apr 9, 2017
    The US Military shows its military power with gating and machine guns. A great video of US Military helicopter aircraft lifting cargo. BREMERHAVEN, Germany – The Surface Deployment and Distribution Command received and staged the first set of the 10th Combat Aviation Brigade’s Chinook, Black Hawk, and Apache helicopters on Feb. 11, here.

    Over the next two weeks, the SDDC and the 16th Sustainment Brigade will facilitate the reception, staging, onward movement, and integration of 10th CAB at seaports in three countries across Europe.

    “Twenty years ago, there was constant military activity at the ports with 300,000 U.S. Soldiers in Europe,” said Johan Benner, a marine cargo specialist for the 838th Transportation Battalion, Surface Deployment and Distribution Command. “Although there are now 30,000 U.S. Soldiers in Europe, with the addition of regionally allocated forces coming into the area from the continental United States, I’ve seen the flow of military equipment at ports building back up.”

    With the arrival of 10th CAB just weeks after the arrival of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, the ability to receive and move armored and aviation brigades swiftly through Europe’s interior lines of communication is critical for speed of assembly and the massing of forces. The logistical processes of advancing brigades though the deployment pipeline is continuously refined by the 21st Theater Sustainment Command to verify capacities at nodes of transportation and to maintain flexibility.

    “Our task is to provide movement control support, transportation expertise, and reporting for 10th CAB,” said Capt. Jacy Schmidt, commander, 635th Transportation Detachment, a native of Manhattan, KS. “We are also evaluating the capacities of the seaports for future operations.”

    After touching down at the ports, 10th CAB Soldiers will begin generating combat power by assembling their helicopters and moving to four different countries. Over the next nine months, 10th CAB will conduct medical transport, exercise support, and aviation operations during major multinational training exercises in Europe focusing on interoperability with allies and partners.
    “This is an exciting and unique opportunity to train with our allies and operate out of numerous NATO countries. I think it’ll be a great chance to flex our capabilities, assure our allies of our presence, and grow as a joint force,” said 1st Lt. Amber Ingwell, aviation officer, 2nd Assault Helicopter Battalion, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, a native of Tomah, WI. “We have all worked tirelessly to train for this deployment, and we are eager to prove our capabilities.”

    THE ARMY NEEDS AN URBAN WARFARE SCHOOL AND IT NEEDS IT SOON || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Apr 14, 2017
    Train as you fight. It’s the first of the Army’s ten principles of training, meant to ensure that the Army will develop and execute tough, realistic training. As long as we train as we fight, no soldier should confront a situation or an environment for the first time in combat. Unfortunately, the Army occasionally ignores this principle. Case in point: despite history and global urbanization trends, the Army doesn’t adequately train for operations in urban environments. It is time that changed. The Army needs to establish an urban warfare school to prepare soldiers to fight and survive in dense urban terrain.

    IF A WAR BETWEEN RUSSIA AND AMERICA WENT DOWN: 5 DEADLY WEAPONS MOSCOW WOULD USE || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Apr 21, 2017
    While anti-ship missiles get a lot of attention, submarine launched torpedoes are arguably a much more dangerous threat to U.S. Navy surface warships. Perhaps the most dangerous torpedoes that the Navy might encounter are high-performance Russian-made wake homing torpedoes.

    Wake-homing torpedoes have sensors that track the churn in the water as a ship passes through and homes in on the turbulence following a snake-like pattern. Wake-homing torpedoes have long vexed the Navy because the weapons ignore counter-measures, like the Navy’s Nixie decoy, and attack the ship directly. Further, the weapons are believed to have a very high probability of kill, which means they pose a deadly threat. The only real counter to the wake-homing torpedo problem is to develop an anti-torpedo torpedo (ATT). The Navy has deployed a prototype onboard the carrier USS George HW Bush, but it not clear how effective the new ATTs are.

    AWESOME Military Mini Gun vs Machine Gun comparison video
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Sep 26, 2015
    An awesome video demonstrating the effectiveness of the Mini gun compared to the Machine Gun. The M134 Minigun is a 7.62x51 mm NATO, six-barreled machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute). It features Gatling-style rotating barrels with an external power source, normally an electric motor. The "Mini" in the name is in comparison to designs that use a similar firing mechanism but larger shells, such as General Electric's earlier 20-millimeter M61 Vulcan, and "gun" for a caliber size smaller than that of a cannon, typically 20 mm and higher.

    The Minigun is used by several branches of the U.S. military. Versions are designated M134 and XM196 by the United States Army, and GAU-2/A and GAU-17/A by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.

    "Minigun" refers to a specific model of weapon that General Electric originally produced, but the term "minigun" has popularly come to refer to any externally powered Gatling gun of rifle caliber. The term is also used to refer to guns of similar rates of fire and configuration regardless of power source and caliber.

    History[edit]
    Background: electrically driven Gatling gun[edit]
    The ancestor to the modern minigun was made in the 1860s. Richard Jordan Gatling replaced the hand-cranked mechanism of a rifle-caliber Gatling gun with an electric motor, a relatively new invention at the time. Even after Gatling slowed down the mechanism, the new electric-powered Gatling gun had a theoretical rate of fire of 3,000 rounds per minute, roughly three times the rate of a typical modern, single-barreled machine gun. Gatling's electric-powered design received U.S. Patent #502,185 on July 25, 1893.[1] Despite Gatling's improvements, the Gatling gun fell into disuse after cheaper, lighter-weight, recoil and gas operated machine guns were invented; Gatling himself went bankrupt for a period.[2]

    During World War I, several German companies were working on externally powered guns for use in aircraft. Of those, the best-known today is perhaps the Fokker-Leimberger, an externally powered 12-barrel rotary gun using the 7.92x57mm Mauser round; it was claimed to be capable of firing over 7,000 rpm, but suffered from frequent cartridge-case ruptures[3] due to its "nutcracker", rotary split-breech design, which is fairly different from that of a Gatling.[4] None of these German guns went into production during the war, although a competing Siemens prototype (possibly using a different action) which was tried on the Western Front scored a victory in aerial combat.[3] The British also experimented with this type of split-breech during the 1950s, but they were also unsuccessful.[5]

    Minigun: 1960s–Vietnam[edit]
    In the 1960s, the United States Armed Forces began exploring modern variants of the electric-powered, rotating barrel Gatling-style weapons for use in the Vietnam War. American forces in the Vietnam War, which used helicopters as one of the primary means of transporting soldiers and equipment through the dense jungle, found that the thin-skinned helicopters were very vulnerable to small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) attacks when they slowed down to land. Although helicopters had mounted single-barrel machine guns, using them to repel attackers hidden in the dense jungle foliage often led to barrels overheating or cartridge jams.[citation needed]

    In order to develop a weapon with a more reliable, higher rate of fire, General Electric designers scaled down the rotating-barrel 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon for 7.62×51 mm NATO ammunition. The resulting weapon, designated M134 and known popularly as the Minigun, could fire up to 4,000 rounds per minute without overheating. The gun was originally specified to fire at 6,000 rpm, but this was later lowered to 4,000 rpm.

    The Minigun was mounted on Hughes OH-6 Cayuse and Bell OH-58 Kiowa side pods; in the turret and on pylon pods of Bell AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters; and on door, pylon and pod mounts on Bell UH-1 Iroquois transport helicopters.[citation needed] Several larger aircraft were outfitted with miniguns specifically for close air support: the Cessna A-37 Dragonfly with an internal gun and with pods on wing hardpoints; and the Douglas A-1 Skyraider, also with pods on wing hardpoints. Other famous gunship airplanes were the Douglas AC-47 Spooky, the Fairchild AC-119, and the Lockheed AC-130.[citation needed]

    Dillon Aero minigun[edit]
    The U.S. government had procured some 10,000 miniguns during the Vietnam War. By 1975, production of spare parts had ceased with the Army in possession of a large inventory. By 1985, there were few spares left in the inventory. Units that received miniguns could not maintain them, so by the 1990s only Task Force 160 (later named the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) or 160th SOAR) and some Navy Special Boat Units kept them in regular use. Around 1995, the 160th SOAR began acquiring spare miniguns

    THE U.S. ARMY IS TESTING A DEVASTATING NEW WEAPON: A SUPER 'BAZOOKA' || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Apr 30, 2017
    In 1946, two Swedes named Hugo Abramson and Harald Jentzen designed the Carl Gustaf, which at the time appeared to be just another recoilless rifle like the famous bazooka. Many of these weapons fell out of use in the following decades as anti-tank missiles took over.

    But the Carl Gustaf stuck around — and for a different role than Abramson and Jentzen had planned in the 1940s. For one, it’s now just as much an anti-infantry weapon owing to its range, low cost and types of ammunition.

    Soldiers are fond of the 84-millimeter Carl Gustaf, and it’s easy to see why. The weapon is quite practical for dismounted infantry — especially at long ranges — and creates a thrilling blast, so it’s fun to shoot. The U.S. Army had a handful in service with Special Operations units, and they proved so popular that the Army began distributing them widely.

    War Clashes



    Published on May 5, 2017
    War in Ukraine 2016 - Ukrainian Soldiers from 43 battalion "Patriot" During Intense Seven Minute Firefight In Ukrainian Trenches. Footage shot in summer 2016 near Zaitseve town. A group of Ukrainian soldiers fend off an attack from DPR forces from their trench positions.
    Video provided by soldier nicknamed "Kum" (in English - father of one's godchild).

    DPR forces took the settlement under their control in the beginning of the War in Donbass, in 2014. Ukrainian forces reoccupied the settlement in the second half of 2015.

    The war has brought along both civilian and military casualties. The town is located near the frontline between Ukrainian forces and the pro-russian forces of Donetsk People's Republic in the War in Donbass. It is one of the suburbs of Horlivka that stayed under Ukrainian army control, unlike Horlivka which is under rebels control since April 2014.
