The US Marine Corps is planning on picking up 500 to 800 new amphibious trucks in the next fiscal year, and will soon be accepting bids on new designs.
Anti-ship laser weapons are so last week. The new hotness? BAE's high-powered microwave gun, which it says can shut down up to 30 small boats at a time. It can also instantly pop 600 bags of Orville Redenbacher.
Two years ago, we were given the chance to drive a remote-controlled tank. It was real. It was full-size. We can't stop thinking about it. Trust us: If you ever did this, it would haunt you, too.
BAE Systems today unveiled Taranis, an advanced stealth unmanned aircraft that can carry its deadly payload deep into enemy territory without a pilot. It can also think for itself. It's part awesome, part Cylon Raider
The US Military's much-loved HMMWV ("Humvee") is soon to be put out to pasture, having outlived its use. Vying for its place are three contenders sporting better armor, smarter electronics and simpler mechanics. Here's a first look.
Cue up Boyz II Men's "End Of The Road" because the Pentagon announced they're going to stop buying Humvees after this year. A quick look at two of the vehicles set to replace the venerable truck below.
BAE Systems has developed a smaller and lighter off-roading version of their Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. It's undergoing testing right now at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, but we're ready to pony-up now.
Remember when we went into the current conflict abroad with, lets say, less than proper equipment for the guerrilla warfare situation our ground troops would find? Remember how the quick fix was to up-armor the existing Humvee's to protect the troops inside as best as could be managed? Well, this is a possible long…
It's not often you get to play around with giant prototype military tow trucks, but then again, you don't get to drive robotic tanks every day either. The RG33L MRRMV is a platform modified version of the now in theater MRAP, or Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. Basically a big-ass truck with a V-shaped blast…
