Behold The Fearsomeness Of An Armored 6x6 G-Wagen Coming Out Of A Jet

A reader spotted this militarized monster version of the already imposing Mercedes G 65 AMG 6x6. Between all that armor, the navy grey paint, and one hell of a truck elevator this picture make me feel like Homer Simpson looking at donuts and Duff. » 4/04/14 6:27pm 4/04/14 6:27pm

I Wore the Navy's Oculus Rift, and It Showed Me the Future of Warfare

When we think of the future of the military, we think of bigger and better weapons. Laser canons and the like. But what about the people operating those lasers? How can a behemoth like the Navy ready its future sailors for the high-tech combat of tomorrow? Believe it or not, with an Oculus Rift. » 3/13/14 11:26am 3/13/14 11:26am

You wouldn't think a T55AM2 battle tank could get bogged in a crop field, but it looks like some British blokes at "The Tank School" managed to break one in an inch of mud.

Mil Porn: Canyon, Or Should I Say Crevice Flying In A Hellenic AF F-4

A view through the front windscreen and HUD of a Hellenic AF F-4E as it transitions down a very tight canyon with a pretty serious obstacle ahead!

This flying drone helicopter truck is a real life transformer

What is this? A flying drone? Eight flying drones? One flying helicopter? A moving room? A truck? It's a little bit of everything. Called the AT Black Knight Transformer, it combines the vertical takeoff and landing of a helicopter with the off-road driving capabilities of a truck.

Your Local Cops Are Probably Out Buying Ex-Iraq Death Trucks Right Now

This is an MRAP, a mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle. It didn't exist until well into the Iraq War, when we went to war with the Army we had, and that Army's Humvees didn't survive very well. We bought a lot of MRAPs. The Iraq War is over. Now, how many of these MRAPs can we put your police down for? » 11/25/13 3:20pm 11/25/13 3:20pm
