Published on Jan 30, 2018
A new weapon system developed by the Strategic Capabilities Office — a secretive Pentagon agency meant to advance cutting-edge technology — could improve integrated air and missile defense by reducing overall costs and increasing flexibility, said an official Jan. 25.

The technology — known as the hypervelocity gun weapon system, or HGWS — is a small, flexible hypervelocity projectile, said Vince Sabio, program manager for the system.

U.S. AIRMAN'S MILITARY CAREER OVER AFTER A FACEBOOK VIDEO?!
NICKY MGTV


Published on Jan 29, 2018
This video I react to the situation of an airman that posted a racially charged facebook live video of her junior airmen. I take away points that yes she is in the wrong, but the community that surrounds her is just as responsible and this could have been handled at a lower level. Do not be a bystander is this situation or really any other situation as we are a team and need to start acting like it.

If you would like to see the full video you can check the facebook page "Air Force amn/nco/snco" to make an appropriate assessment. I have written on the post to have them take it down even with officials handling the situation but it still remains.

Published on Feb 2, 2018
Odo Puiu Info invites you to watch ….
Russian S-400 “SAM” Battery ✭ Mass Arrival In Tartus.

The Russian military has delivered new units of its state-of-the-art S-400 anti-aircraft systems to Syria.
The weapons have assumed combat duty in Russian army compounds in the country.
Videos provided by the country’s Defense Ministry show the arrival of four of the systems.
Two were delivered by air to the Khmeimim Airbase in the Syrian province of Latakia, and two more were shipped to a Russian maritime facility located in Tartus.
The S-400 is the latest generation of Russian mobile anti-aircraft systems currently in service. It is designed to engage aerodynamic targets and ballistic missiles.
An S-400 unit can engage up to 36 targets simultaneously, according to its manufacturers, Almaz Antey.
In 2015, Russia deployed the system to Khmeimim to ensure the safety of its aircraft during after the downing of a Russian Su-24 bomber by Turkey.

Thanks for watching.

MILITARY JOBS THAT PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN RELIEF?! (BEST DEPLOYMENTS)
NICKY MGTV


Published on Feb 2, 2018
This video I discuss some of the jobs and positions which help assist with humanitarian reliefs. I did forget to add that sometimes the navy will send ships to aid during natural disasters. So if you are stationed on that specific ship then you will go with the ship. Again there is no way to plan your career to be on a specific ship for these missions. Higher level authority decide which ships will be sent and these decisions are based on a multitude of things.

Published on Feb 12, 2018
French company Naval Group opened the doors of its underwater weapon facility in Saint-Tropez so that Navy Recognition may bring you an exclusive video report on the latest technologies in terms of torpedoes, UUVs and anti-torpedo countermeasures.

The F21 torpedo (Artemis) is the only new heavy torpedo development in the world. Its characteristics are significantly superior to all other heavy torpedoes currently in service. Beyond its exceptional performance levels, its on-board tactical intelligence makes this torpedo a precursor for what tomorrow’s underwater drones could be.

CHINA IS SELLING A NEW TANK. COULD IT BEAT THE M1 ABRAMS IN A FIGHT? || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Feb 13, 2018
While China’s primary tank is the ZTZ-99, its military industry (in the Western tradition) has also developed completely original designs for export. One of the designs that’s achieved considerable success is the VT-4, which has been recently adopted in significant numbers by the Royal Thai Army. The VT-4 is China’s premier export tank, built on technology and designs behind the earlier Al-Khalid tank that was built with cooperation from Pakistan and Ukraine. But how does the VT-4’s technology stack up against Russia’s T-90S, America’s M1 Abrams export models or the Leopard 2?

US Army drops grenade throwing as a requirement to graduate because new recruits can't throw far enough (but do they mean women?)
  • US Army will no longer require recruits to show adequate hand grenade skills
  • Change is being made because many enlistees 'can’t throw it far enough'
  • Recruits also won't be required to pass land navigation course to graduate
  • Army's redesign of Basic Combat Training is aimed at instilling more discipline
  • Army would not comment on whether the specific requirements are particularly a problem for women
  • Many on Twitter used the development to attack influx of female enlistees

RUSSIAN MERCENARIES TRIED TO TEST THE US MILITARY IN SYRIA — AND GOT WHOOPED || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Feb 18, 2018
More details have emerged from the massive battle in Syria that is said to have killed hundreds of Russian contractors — and it looks as if they tried to test the US. Reports have said that the forces loyal to the Syrian government advanced and fired at a US-held position in Syria and that the counterattack obliterated them.
It looks as if the Russian contractors and their Syrian and Iranian allies may be too weak to budge the US without getting the Russian military involved.

THESE CHINESE MILITARY INNOVATIONS THREATEN U.S. SUPERIORITY || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Feb 19, 2018
The Chinese New Year began with the traditional lighting of firecrackers on Friday, but the country's military has been working on incendiaries on an entirely different scale.

Over the past year, the nation that invented gunpowder has been rolling out an array of high-tech weapons that some experts say could threaten the global superiority of the United States.

"The U.S. no longer possesses clear military-technical dominance, and China is rapidly emerging as a would-be superpower in science and technology," said Elsa B. Kania, an adjunct fellow at the Center for a New American Security, a Washington think tank.

The Dogo from General Robotics is a portable, tactical combat robot. The big difference is that the Dogo is armed with a 9mm Glock pistol...

Russian Military puts a SHOW OF MILITARY POWER to show US Military who is boss
ArmedForcesUpdate


Published on Feb 20, 2018
A great video of Russian military power in Russian military exercise. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Russian: Вооружённые Си́лы Росси́йской Федера́ции, tr. Vooruzhonnije Síly Rossíyskoj Federátsii) are the military service of Russia, established after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. On 7 May 1992, Boris Yeltsin signed a presidential decree establishing the Russian Ministry of Defence and placing all Soviet Armed Forces troops on the territory of the Russian SFSR under Russian control.[5] The commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president of Russia. Although the Russian armed forces were formed in 1992, the Russian military dates its roots back to the times of the Kievan Rus'.

The armed forces are divided into:

the three "branches of Armed Forces" (вида вооружённых сил): the Ground Force, Air Force, and the Navy
the three "separate troop branches" (Отдельные рода войск): the Strategic Missile Troops, the Aerospace Defense Forces and the Airborne Troops
the Rear of the Armed Forces, which has a separate status of its own
There are additionally two further "separate troop branches" maintained by the Ministry of the Interior, the Border Force and the Internal Troops. These are not normally included as branches of the "Armed Forces" but are nonetheless used in armed conflicts.

The number of troops is specified by decree of the President of Russia. On 1 January 2008, a number of 2,019,629 units, including military of 1,134,800 units, was set.[6] In 2010 the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) estimated that the Russian Armed Forces numbered about 1,040,000 active troops and in the region of 2,035,000 reserves (largely ex-conscripts).[7] As opposed to personnel specified by decree, actual personnel in the forces and paid was reported by the Audit Chamber of Russia as 766,000 in October 2013.[8] As of December 2013, the armed forces are at 82 percent of the required manpower.[9]

According to SIPRI, Russia spent nearly $72 billion on arms in 2011. Russia is planning further increases in its military spending, with draft budgets showing a 53% rise in real terms up to 2014. However, SIPRI adds that many analysts are doubtful whether the industry will be able to deliver on such ambitious plans after decades of stagnation following the collapse of the Soviet Union.[10]

Structure[edit]
The Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation serves as the administrative body of the Armed Forces. Since Soviet times, the General Staff has acted as the main commanding and supervising body of the Russian armed forces: U.S. expert William Odom said in 1998, that 'the Soviet General Staff without the MoD is conceivable, but the MoD without the General Staff is not.'[22] However, currently the General Staff's role is being reduced to that of the Ministry's department of strategic planning, the Minister himself, currently Sergey Shoygu may now be gaining further executive authority over the troops.[citation needed] Other departments include the personnel directorate as well as the Rear Services, railway troops, Signal Troops and construction troops. The Chief of the General Staff is currently General of the Army Valery Gerasimov.

The Russian military is divided into three services: the Russian Ground Forces, the Russian Navy, and the Russian Air Force. In addition there are three independent arms of service: Strategic Missile Troops, Russian Aerospace Defense Forces, and the Russian Airborne Troops. The Air Defence Troops, the former Soviet Air Defence Forces, have been subordinated into the Air Force since 1998. The Armed Forces as a whole are traditionally referred to as the Army (armiya), except in some cases, the Navy is specifically singled out.

Since late 2010 the Ground Forces as well as the Air Forces and Navy are distributed among four military districts: Western Military District, Southern Military District, Central Military District, and the Eastern Military District which also constitute four Joint Strategic Commands — West, South, Central, and East. Previously from 1992 to 2010, the Ground Forces were divided into six military districts: Moscow, Leningrad, North Caucausian, Privolzhsk-Ural, Siberian and Far Eastern and Russia's four fleets and one flotilla were organizations on par with the Ground Forces' Military Districts. These six MDs were merged into the four new MDs, which now also incorporate the air forces and naval forces.

There is one remaining Russian military base, the 102nd Military Base, in Armenia left of the former Transcaucasus Group of Forces. It likely reports to the Southern Military District.

The Navy consists of four fleets and one flotilla:

Northern Fleet (HQ at Severomorsk) subordinated to Joint Strategic Command West.
Baltic Fleet (HQ at Kaliningrad in the exclave of Kaliningrad Oblast) subordinated to Joint Strategic Command West.
