    Military Video/Images Thread

    Post by Ronin201 on Wed Aug 05, 2015 9:22 pm

    Sort of similar to the "Aviation Image and Video Thread" back on ES, but more towards military matters in general. Post images and videos and discuss em (and keep the rules in mind).



    First up I have some armored exercises starring the German Army and US Army. Thanks to Tiny for showing this on the Skype group, I especially like the use of foliage by the vehicles throughout the exercise.

    I stumbled across this site. Has some good reference photos on Desert Storm era aircraft as well as further info for model builders and some weapons loadouts of the conflict.

    Damn fine timing on the part of both the F/A-18 pilot and the photographer! Those poses.

    Now, something for everyone.

    So for anyone who's a comic fan, this guy above is Buck Danny. I recently learned he's the main character of a series of aviation comics of the same name that've been written as far back as 1947. The comic's originally Franco-Belgian, but I've seen a few pages in English. Stories go from The Flying Tigers in WWII to modern day in F-22s. Anyone here happen to know about him?

    Is it bad my first thought was "Is that a Hawker Hunter in FAA markings??" <_<

    Also I think someone was trying to recreate Looney Toons physics in a jet. Razz

    There were five Fleet Air Arm squadrons that used the Hawker Hunter. These squadrons were the 736, 738, 759 and 764 Naval Air Squadrons and the Fleet Requirements and Air Direction Unit (also known as the Blue Herons).
