Slow Motion RPGs, Javelins & Recoilless Rifles Are Sorta Mesmerizing

Often times small arms, missiles and even combat vehicles function at such high-speeds that we really can't see exactly how their intricate parts work, or what their projectiles even look like.

Russia's Fast And Elusive TOPOL-M Ballistic Missile Is Scary As Hell

The giant TOPOL-M road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile is one frightening creation of mankind. It can hide in cities, forests, or even nuclear-attack hardened bunkers.

The Littoral Combat Ship is the bane of many surface warfare experts who see the thin-skinned vessel as a $650M speedboat without a clear mission, or teeth for that matter.
