Serving in the military is no picnic for anyone (even for our nations’ elite Outdoor Dining Corps) but it can be especially difficult for women, who still have to deal with jackasses that just can’t wrap their brains around the idea of a woman soldier. A grocery store parking lot effectively demonstrated these…
The Senate has approved a defense budget that would also require women to register for the draft. The new rules would apply to any woman who turns 18 on or after January 1, 2018. The key opponents to drafting women were conservative Republicans, including your old friend, botched Madam Tussauds exhibit Ted Cruz.
Starting today, it appears the US military will be testing a device or devices that will potentially jam GPS signals for six hours each day. We say “appears” because officially the tests were announced by the FAA but are centered near the US Navy’s largest installation in the Mojave Desert. And the Navy won’t tell us…
The U.S. military has been talking about “stealth motorcycles” for years. As of this month, two tech outfits have what seem to be viable prototypes that will both be funded for another revision.
Want to see some of America’s weapons arsenal all lined up from smallest to largest? Watch this cool two-minute clip, which covers everything from a 1.25-inch bullet to 1000-plus foot aircraft carriers.
The New Jersey State Police has confirmed that at least one military vehicle has rolled over and landed on its roof on the Brunswick Turnpike in South Brunswick this afternoon. The road is closed and a rescue helicopter has transported one person with serious injuries to a hospital.
When the DEA bought a spy plane in 2008, it was supposed to be a way to catch and transport dealers in Afghanistan. Instead, it turned into a corroding rust bucket in the desert, and a reminder of how dumb the government can be.
This summer, the U.S. army is taking its next steps towards instituting autonomous military vehicles by dispatching a convoy of self-driving trucks on a highway in Michigan to test vehicle-to-infrastructure technology, Automotive News reports. That’s right: huge, self-driving trucks will be driving on public roads.
On April 29, 2013, National Airlines Flight 102 lifted off from Bagram Airfield, in northeast Afghanistan, carrying several tons of U.S. military equipment destined for the Emirati city of Dubai. Within minutes of liftoff, at 3:27 p.m. local time, the Boeing 747 aircraft suddenly stalled before crashing into one of…
The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China have reportedly selected their next official off-road SUV; the Yongshi Warrior. These have actually been around for years, but have just been green-lit for official military duty.
The V-3 “supergun” was meant to win the war for Germany. In 1943, for the first time since World War II began, Hitler was on the back foot. Allied bombs were devastating German cities and the Fuhrer was rattled. His proposed V-3 cannon would be the biggest gun the world had seen.
Harley-Davidson has always had a special relationship with the military, and they’re taking that one step farther by offering to teach every active-duty, retired, reservists, and veteran members for the entirety of 2016. Bravo.
Wow. This totally looks like the beginning of World War III but thankfully it’s just Operation Trident Juncture, a military exercise by NATO. But not just any old exercise, it’s the biggest military exercise NATO has done in decades and one that required 36,000 troops and more than 140 aircraft and 60 ships from over…
Traditional gas masks are designed to seal to your face and neck, protecting you from breathing harmful chemical or biological agents. But they won’t work with full beards, which is a problem if you’re a Sikh warrior like Harjit Sajjan. His solution?
The Russian Air Force’s Tupolev TU-160 is a gorgeous-looking plane with sweeping wings and the capability to reach supersonic speeds. It’s also a scary powerful bomber aircraft with the ability to launch the frightening KH-555 cruise missile, an air-launched missile that can be equipped with a nuclear warhead and has…
What’s your car good for; 130 MPH? Maybe 150? Whatever, it’s pretty much all the same until you clear 1,000 and for $185,000, this fifty-year-old slab of Soviet metal will get you to the speed of sound. I mean as soon as you figure out how to fly it.
Multi-country military team NATO is in the middle of a mock-war right now called “Trident Juncture.” Air, sea and land vehicles were all looking totally badass on this beach-storming mission until it was time to roll out the Humvees, which immediately got bogged.
This intense footage shows an amphibious landing exercise performed by the US Marines and South Korea’s Marines at Dogue Beach in Pohang, South Korea. You see the ships swarming from the sea. You see hovercrafts landing on the beach. You see explosions. You’re basically seeing how the US Marines would invade a beach…
The Cougar 6x6 MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) military truck weighs about 35,000 pounds when it’s intact. Even with a chunk missing it still takes an epic tow truck, a specially-built towing tank, and one seriously beefy big rig to haul off.
