Among the pagodas on Mandalay Hill, Indian troops of 19th Division open fire on a Japanese strongpoint.
An early example of the Soviet’s semi-auto 7.62x54R rifle. Later models of the SVT-40 had a different muzzle brake design using two large ports rather than multiple, smaller ports. Note the “SA” mark on the receiver. This rifle was captured by the Finnish military and remarked. It does not stand for “semi-auto”; it is Finnish for Suomen Armeija (Finnish Military). Ironically the Finns used the SVT-40 against the Soviets with better results, since many Soviet soldiers found the weapon too complicated.
In the cold…
Bundeswehr soldiers of Panzerbataillon 413, a unit that has served in Afghanistan, stand next to their armoured vehicles during military exercises and a visit by German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen at the Bundeswehr combat training center on January 28, 2014 in Letzlingen, Germany. Von der Leyen stated she aims to see the Bundeswehr participate more in foreign peacekeeping missions.
I REALLY want to ask the female oberleutnant what unit she was a part of, but she intimidates the hell out of me. I’m 6’ 1”, and she’s taller.
I recently noticed that the first aid kit in my car is rather…lackluster. That is to say, if I or someone near me gets seriously hurt, I can’t do a damn thing about it except apply pressure with a rag and hold their hand while rescue comes along. Hence, this new project of mine.
What I’ve come up with so far to make the kit a bit more appropriate to trauma injuries/worst case:
- Israeli Bandages
- CAT (Combat Application Tourniquet)
I know a couple people who follow me are involved in EMT/medical fields, so if you can give me some pointers, that would be great.
