China moves troops to North Korean Boarder
(April 12th 2013) Video footage has been found of China sending tanks and troops to the North Korean Border. Although China would NOT likely back North Korea in a conflict, they may have to deal with a refugee problem if a war does break out. It is also possible that China may want to take control of North Korea should the current regime collapse.
Ft. Benning, GA - Fryar DZ - 101F Degrees in the shade....It was a great day for watching 400+ U.S. Army Rangers jump out of perfectly good U.S. Air Force aircraft! Murica!
This is in response to Serpa6's video. U.S. Army 160th SOAR: Helicopters Must Fly FASTER & FARTHER -http://www.apacheclips.com/boards/media/4431-US-Army-160th-SOAR-Helicopters-Must-Fly-FASTER-FARTHER The technology shown in that video (modified Sikorsky UH-60) was early testing of what culminated into what we see here, 5 years in the making. Solves all the problems the General was talking about and then some. Search on "Sikorsky X2" and watch as the earlier prototype goes nearly 300mph. Definitive game changer that's proven it's prowess in testing fo sure.
13B Getting after it
Was this the frist actual patroit missle system? Hes hawk was originaly made for shooting down jets, but this test made the army think about intercepting more kinds of targets
The HIMARS is the newest member of the MLRS launcher family and carries a single six-pack of rockets or one ATACMS missile on the Army's Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) 5-ton truck, and can launch the entire MLRS family of munitions. It was successfully combat-tested in Operation Iraqi Freedom. HIMARS is C-130 transportable and can be deployed into areas previously inaccessible to heavier tracked launchers. It also incorporates the self-loading, autonomous features that have made MLRS the premier rocket artillery system in the world. The HIMARS fire control system, electronics and communications units are interchangeable with the existing MLRS M270A1 launcher, and the crew and training are the same.
