    War is Boring ^ | September 28, 2016 | Matthew Moss
    Physically, North Korea’s Type 73 light machine gun resembles both the British Bren and the Russian PKM. The gas-operated, 7.62-by-54R-chambered Type 73 boats a cyclic rate of 600 to 700 rounds per minute and a quick-change barrel system. Weighing 10.6 kilograms unloaded, the Type 73 is heavier than the Russian PKM is.
  • Judge Orders Soldier to Carry Photo of Drowned Puppy in His Wallet

    A Fort Bragg soldier who intentionally drowned his 8-month-old puppy in 2015 was ordered by a judge Tuesday to keep a photo of the dog in his wallet. Police said John Burrow tied up the pup named Riley then threw the animal into MacFadyen Pond in Fayetteville, North Carolina. On Jan. 2, 2015, the dog’s body washed ashore. Burrow allegedly told investigators the mixed lab-shepherd pup had run from home several times, and he and his wife could not afford the bills after the dog got hurt. Burrow’s neighbors were furious, especially those who had given the couple hundreds of...

    A big day for an Arizona veteran who is 101 years old. He was taken on a special ride in Prescott Valley. It was called “One Last Ride” and for Ray Weser it was a ride of a lifetime. “I’ll be 102 in December,” Weser said. Weser says he fell in love with Harley-Davidson motorcycles as a young teen when he was working on a Harley. “Harley dripping oil, smoke coming out of everywhere and I fell in love with motorcycles right there!” Weser said.

    Ankara’s tanks have been in the news a lot this year, whether prowling the streets of the Turkish capital in a failed coup attempt, or taking missile fire from rebel fighters on the Syrian border. Recently, Turkish armor crossed over into Syria and drove the Islamic State terrorist group from its last holdings along the Turkish border — and also fought with U.S.-backed Kurdish rebels, creating a frustrating diplomatic quandary for the White House.

    ROSEBURG, Ore. — Chris Mintz finished his six-minute deployment broken yet unbowed. He had been shot five times and was bleeding out, thousands of miles from the nearest battlefield. Being wounded was a real possibility when Mintz enlisted as an Army infantryman, but taking fire in rural Oregon wasn’t quite what he pictured. He joined in 2004, between two vicious battles in Fallujah while an insurgency simmered in Afghanistan. He could have gone into water purification or finance or any number of jobs. But choosing combat arms in wartime takes a certain kind of soldier with a certain something to...

    In August 1968, Soviet forces invaded their captive ally Czechoslovakia. The invasion began with an intense electronic warfare campaign against the Czech air defense network. A declassified secret US Defense Intelligence Agency report, titled “Soviet Electronic Countermeasures During Invasion of Czechoslovakia” and produced in October 1968, provided substantial detail on Soviet electronic warfare actions. It stated, “Electronic countermeasure activity was concentrated southeast and east of Prague to screen and protect Soviet air movements.” It added, “Jamming apparently was not targeted in the radio frequency range of NATO radars; the locations of chaff seeding suggests that it was not intended to...

    War is Boring ^ | September 21, 2016 | Robert Farley
    Over the last century of military aviation, several fighters have earned the nickname “flying coffin.” Military aviation inherently pushes up against the limits of technology and human endurance, particularly where fighter and pursuit aviation are concerned. Flying a fighter is remarkably dangerous, even when no one is trying to shoot you down. Engineering a capable fighter plane is also a struggle. Relatively small changes in engine, armament and airframe design can transform a clunker into an elite fighting machine. Many of the best fighters in history were initially viewed askance by their pilots.

    There are real limits on the amount of AI acceptable to navy commanders.With rising security challenges in the global commons, there is growing interest in the subject of “intelligent” weapons systems. This is especially so in the maritime realm, where recent studies have shown that precision-guided weaponry and networked systems are likely to play an increasingly important role. Even while accepting autonomous systems as the future of maritime warfare, however, many find the subject of “intelligent weapon systems” to be deeply contentious. A good point of departure for the discussion on autonomous combat systems is a recent report in the...

    Southern Arizona veterans suffering from combat-related injuries have a new resource. Soldier’s Best Friend provides service dogs for U.S. military combat veterans living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or combat related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The Peoria, Ariz.-based non-profit began in 2011 after a veterinarian noticed some of his clients’ dogs were instrumental in helping them cope with their own issues such as depression or uneasiness in public. The program partners with local rescue shelters to obtain the dogs and it is from assisting the veteran and saving the dog that the organization gets its motto “Touching 2 lives at...

    The last missing ship from the Battle of Jutland has been found in the North Sea 100 years after it was sunk in combat with Germany. HMS Warrior was recently discovered 90 yards under the sea a century after it was abandoned due to the heavy damage it took from enemy shelling. The Battle of Jutland is regarded as the only major naval battle of the First World War and involved 100,000 men and 250 ships, with almost 9,000 sailors killed on both sides during the 36-hour conflict.

Starting Nov. 1, the training will educate sailors about the Navy’s new transgender policy that allows transgenders to serve in the military, Military.com reported. “This training will emphasize policies and expectations of personal behavior,” the message states. It is unclear what exactly is in these training sessions yet, but the Navy will soon send out messages with more information. In the meantime, leadership is putting together a commander’s tool kit that will guide training, said Lt. Jessica Anderson, a spokeswoman...

Now a shrinking Army wants them able to get ready for combat sooner. The brigade’s 4,200 soldiers are the first of 13 National Guard and Army Reserve units nationwide chosen to test a new role that pairs them with commanders on active-duty who will oversee their training. The Pentagon hopes the change will make the Guard and Reserve troops better prepared to fight overseas at a...
