How Liquid Body Armor Works" ­The basic idea behind body armor hasn't changed very much in the past few thous­and years.

How Liquid Body Armor Works"

First, armor stops weapons or projectiles from reaching a person's body. Second, it diffuses the weapon's energy so that the final impact causes less damage. While it's not effective in every situation, armor can generally help protect people from serious injury or death, especially against the right weaponry. Over the years, people have had to develop stronger and more advanced armor to protect against increasingly sophisticated weapons. Lucianistrate.

Development/Description The Shtora-1 armoured fighting vehicle defence system has been developed by the Zenit Research and Production Corporation to increase the battlefield survivability of vehicles against attack from Anti-Tank Guided Weapons (ATGWs) with a Semi-Automatic Command to Line Of Sight (SACLOS) guidance system as well as missiles and artillery projectiles that use laser illumination.

Development[edit] To further improve the T-72's export prospects and its chances of being selected as Russia's sole production main battle tank, the T-80U's more sophisticated fire control system was also added to produce a vehicle designated T-72BU.

T-90

The T-90 was developed by the Kartsev-Venediktov Design Bureau at the Uralvagonzavod factory in Nizhny Tagil. The production model is based on the T-72BM, with some added features from the T-80 series.[5] The T-90 with an 830 hp (620 kW) engine went into low-level production in 1993, based on a prototype designated T-88. It features a new generation of Kontakt-5 explosive reactive armor on its hull and turret. USAF Special Operations Vehicles - Photo Gallery.

The Ranger SOV is a 4x4 vehicle used by the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Special Operations Vehicles

Based around the Land Rover Defender 110 series, the SOV is used as a light attack and reconnaissance platform. The Rangers chose the Land Rover SOV because it has a greater capacity than DPV/LSV buggies but, unlike the HMMWV, is small enough to be readily transported by helicopter (2 fully equipped SOVs fit in the belly of a Chinook helicopter), something vital for air-deployable forces such as the Rangers. The SOV can carry up to 7 Rangers. Land Rover SOVs feature a set of pintle mounts and rollbars onto which various weapons can be fitted. These include: M2 .50 machine guns M240 7.62mm belt-fed machine guns MK19/MK47 40mm grenade launchers. Recent scenes from North Korea - The Big Picture. Search and destroy.

Search and destroy

Search and Destroy, Seek and Destroy, or even simply S&D, refers to a military strategy that became a large component of the Malayan Emergency and the Vietnam War. The idea was to insert ground forces into hostile territory, search out the enemy, destroy them, and withdraw immediately afterward. The strategy was the result of a new technology, the helicopter, which resulted in a new form of warfare, the fielding of air cavalry,[1] and was thought to be ideally suited to counter-guerrilla jungle warfare. The complementary conventional strategy, which entailed attacking and conquering an enemy position, then fortifying and holding it indefinitely, was known as "clear and hold" or "clear and secure.
