FACT: NATO THOUGHT RUSSIA WOULD CRUSH THEM IN A WAR (UNTIL THE 1970S) || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Apr 14, 2018
After 1982, AirLand Battle would return maneuver to the battlefield, as American commanders grew more confident of their ability to defeat the Red Army in a fluid engagement. Cooperation between the Army and the Air Force would allow attacks all along the depth of the Soviet position, turning the formidable Red Army (and its Eastern European allies) into a chaotic mess. At the same time, the U.S. Navy prepared to attack directly into the Soviet periphery with airstrikes and amphibious assaults, as well as into the cherished “bastions” of the Soviet boomer fleet. None of this depended on the protection of any given piece of NATO territory; planners accepted that the Soviets could make at least some gains at the beginning of any plausible war scenario.

How a Royal Navy submarine was locked in deadly game of 'hide and seek' with Russian hunter killers in the Mediterranean before air strikes on Syria

  • Russian Kilo-class submarines chased British Astute-class vessels backed up by two frigates and an aircraft
  • They hunted the UK vessel as it carried Tomahawk missiles with a range of up to 1,000 miles close to Syria
  • Britain joined the U.S. and France in airstrikes against the Assad regime and its chemical weapons facilities
  • Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of 'consequences' and said said there was no evidence of the attack
  • President Donald Trump has vowed to carry out further strikes if Assad crosses the chemical 'red line' again
  • Theresa May has faced criticism for authorising the military action without a vote in the House of Commons
  • Boris Johnson defended the PM but said the UK would take 'precautions' amid fears of Russian cyber-attacks
  • Labour's Jeremy Corbyn questioned their legality and demanded a 'war powers' law to give Parliament a say

The US, France, and the UK, appear on the verge of combat with Syria, and possibly its ally Russia, over suspected chemical weapons use against civilians — and it could easily spiral into one of the most complicated, advanced military skirmishes of all time.

But this time, with the US considering its response to another attack against civilians blamed on the Syrian government, Russian officials threatened to shoot down US missiles, and potentially the ships that launched them, if they attacked Syria.

The oldest and most mature U.S. system is the Patriot, a mobile system deployed by the U.S. Army and more than a dozen allies for defense against air-breathing threats and as a lower-tier or terminal defense against ballistic missiles. The Patriot system has been used in combat by the U.S. and four other nations with great success.

From April 13-16, fifty-one teams of our top military athletes pushed themselves to the limit in a punishing series of events.

The David E. Grange Jr. Best Ranger Competition, organized annually by the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade, was founded in 1982 to determine the best Ranger in the Ranger Department, but has since expanded to include all Ranger-qualified Soldiers throughout the entire Army and other willing Ranger-qualified service members from sister services.

This year's winners are SFC Anthony Allen and SFC Joshua Rolfes, both Ranger Instructors at the Airborne Ranger Training Brigade.

THE SEA MONSTER -RUSSIA'S AK-130 NAVAL 'CANNON' COULD KILL A NAVY DESTROYER || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Apr 21, 2018
The AK-130 naval gun is one of the most formidable artillery pieces afloat today. However, it had a long and troubled development period, mostly due to the stagnation of Soviet shipboard artillery research and its massive weight. However, once fielded it proved itself to be an extremely rapid weapon, attaining rates of fire of upwards of sixty rounds per minute of 130-millimeter shells. But why did Soviet naval doctrine call for such a monster of a gun? Is it still relevant today?

M777 155mm Howitzer Review
Matsimus


Published on Apr 17, 2018
The M777 Lightweight 155mm howitzer provides timely, accurate and continuous firepower in support of Marine and Army infantry forces and replaces the M198 towed Howitzer.

In 2005, the Army and Marine Corps began fielding the M777, a much smaller, lighter (9,000 pounds lighter) and more maneuverable towed cannon weapon than its predecessor, resulting in improved transportability and mobility without impacting range or accuracy. Seven-ton trucks are used to move the M777s, enabling artillery units to move faster between positions.

A must for equipment in an expeditionary force, the howitzer is also highly deployable, able to be lifted externally by both the MV-22 Osprey and CH-53E Super Stallion and a single CH-47 Chinook.

Hope you enjoy!!

'HITLER'S ZIPPER': NAZI GERMANY'S DEADLY MACHINE GUN NO ONE WANTED TO MESS WITH || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Apr 24, 2018
The MG 42, possibly the best machine gun ever created, originated as a replacement for the German Army’s standard machine gun, the MG 34, which first came into service in 1936. Designed by Louis Stange of the Rheinmetall-Borsig AG (referred to simply as Rheinmetall) located at Sommerda, the MG 34, at the start of World War II, was the Third Reich’s preferred general purpose machine gun (GPMG) and was intended to replace the heterogeneous collection of automatic infantry weapons then in service as befitted the new German “one-gun-fits-all” philosophy.
