Yesterday, The Intercept published the results of a two-year investigation on alleged war crimes and war profiteering of SEAL Team Six in its rapid expansion of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Among the most disturbing details was that SEAL operatives reportedly started taking inspiration from a book lionizing a…
We already know the Oshkosh JLTV will be replacing the U.S. military’s iconic Hummer for general mobility, but apparently there’s still a gap in the motor pool for fast and light tactical transportation. It turns out the Army may end up with the same buggy you can buy at your local powersports shop.
During a Pentagon press briefing today, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said that the U.S. military will drastically accelerate attacks on ISIS where it may hurt them the most strategically: in cyberspace.
Further proof that Russia is actually just a 1980s action comedy brought to life, here are two members of their Spetsnaz special forces doing the robot.
I’ve seen a lot of military recruitment and promotional videos, and most of the time they just seem like either over-produced Michael Bay wanna-be junk or slogan rich diatribes that try to pull on a few viewers heart strings. The Philippines Special Forces took another, more straight forward route that really gives a…
Seven years ago, an Israeli Special Forces team near Tartus, Syria’s second largest city and a popular vacation spot, somehow managed to get near the house of a Syrian general while he was hosting a dinner party. They put bullets into his head and neck, and disappeared without a peep. Until now.
Eager Lion 2015 was truly a land, air and sea exercise, with the maritime component working out of Jordan’s Red Sea port of Aqaba.

Or rather, the operators who would use the Navistar SOTV-B would want you to think there’s absolutely nothing special about it. It is the ultimate blank pick up truck for clandestine environments. And if that’s not anonymous enough for you, it can look like any truck your heart desires.
You have to hand it to this guy when it comes to making an exit in style. This surreal photo shows a soldier from the 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group saluting while hanging in mid-air just outside a C-130 that is flying high over frigid Germany.
This satellite image was taken of Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport in September of this year. It shows spec ops C-130s and CV-22s, Navy P-3s and Super Hornets, a lone King Air and one conspicuously bright white plane. It's a WB-57 and technically it belongs to NASA, but it's not there to map the atmosphere or…
The US military, facing a distinct shortage of allies willing to let them build forward operating bases on their land, has developed an ingenious solution: build the base on a boat and moor it in international waters. All of the shock and awe, none of the messy legal entanglements.
What does a frogman do when he encounters and enemy frogman underwater? Well, he can attempt a watery, zero gravity-like knife fight to the death, or her can pull his Heckler & Koch P11 underwater pistol!
Now that everyone's over the initial awe that comes from watching someone do something as crazy as jumping out of a balloon at 128,000 feet and plummeting toward the Earth at supersonic speeds, it's time to find out what practical application can be had from it.
