Afghani soldiers fishing with RPGs

Writing by admin on Saturday, 13 of October , 2007 at 6:07 pm

There’s an old saying in my country: “Hunger is the best teacher”. Well, that’s probably true but taking out fish with a RPG is definitely overkill. I know they’re doing it for the fun, but at least they could’ve found a better target for practicing (like an incoming helicopter for example).

It uses powerful microwaves at 95 GHz, that pass through your clothes without setting them on fire, and heat the water molecules of which your body is formed.

M82/M107 .50 caliber Barrett sniper rifle

Writing by admin on Tuesday, 28 of August , 2007 at 4:54 pm

The M82 and the most recent evolution the M107 are both versions of the same weapon: the .50 caliber Barrett sniper rifle. It’s the most representative sniper rifle, because of its incredible rage (1.5 kilometers) and currently holds the record at 2.5 kilometers. There is no significant difference between the M107 designation ant the last upgrade of the M82: M82A1M.
