    This Day in History 15.9.1916: First Tank in Action In September 1916 the German reserve infantry regiment no. 28 was in the Flers front section at the Somme. One of the most gruesome battles in the First World War had been fought out here, in June of that year. More than a million soldiers lost their lives. German and allied troops faced each other on a front that was 40 kilometres wide. After the first British assault had failed their opponents dug themselves in. Long rows of trenches were laid out, barbed wire and machine gun nests secured the positions...

    In the summer of 1944 the US Army forces in the European Theater of Operations (ETO) conducted a series of test-firings that are much quoted to this day by researchers and wargamers. These test-firings disputed the official line on the effectiveness of the guns and ammunition being provided by the Army's Department of Ordnance, and provided substantive feedback that changed some of the long-held assumptions and methods of Ordnance testing and specifications. There were a total of four test shoots: 1) Shoeburyness, UK; 23 May, 1944: Demonstration firing to observe effectiveness of new US 76mm, 90mm and British 17pdr guns....

    T-72: On the Road to Obsolescence â‹… NEWTOWN, Conn. - New production of the T-72 main battle tank in the Russian Federation remains dormant. The Rosoboronexport organization continues to offer the remaining Russian T-72 tank inventory for export. All new T-72 production now involves only one licensed-production line. With the completion of the Iranian licensed-production programs, we expect no new T-72 production. The T-72 enjoys wide distribution on the international market, with at least 36 nations currently maintaining various versions of the tank in their inventories. The modernization and retrofit packages available will ensure continued use of the T-72 throughout...

    Life and the internet are strange strange things. I've been trading emails and posts etc with Chris for years now. It wasn't at all uncommon for his duties, deployments, and family to make those virtual conversations sporadic from time to time. Well, Chris won't be returning emails anymore. He passed away suddenly on June 30, 2009. Last Fall he and his wife Shannon had a baby girl, Lilly. Chris was so happy. We teased him about how awful it is to step on Barbie Doll high heels in the middle of the night, and he bragged about how his...

    Fast, powerful and with a fearsome array of weaponry, it has already been named "Pitbull" by the soldiers who will drive it deep behind enemy lines. The Army has unveiled its new £200,000 all-terrain vehicle, tailor-made for the hostile terrain of Helmand in Southern Afghanistan. Senior officers say the vehicle will greatly enhance the fighting capability of their soldiers, and will save lives. Armed with a mix of machine guns and an automatic grenade launcher, and with a range of more than 500 miles, the vehicle will be used to hunt down and destroy the Taliban during long range surveillance...

    UPI ^ | 09/26/07
    WASHINGTON, 26 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army announced it will commercially produce a unique protective steel armor based on technology developed and patented by the Department of Energy. The armor, designed to protect military personnel and vehicles from improvised explosive devices and explosively formed penetrators, was created by the Energy Department's National Energy Technology Laboratory. The Department of Defense said it plans to purchase about 10 million pounds of the cast-slotted steel armor known as P-900 for use as add-ons to military vehicles. The U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command expects to receive the first 2.5 million pounds of P-900...

    The Russian T-72 tank is the most widely used tank ever. Over 50,000 have been built. More than any model in World War II. Ironically, the T-72 was a stopgap design, intended to provide a replacement for the more advanced T-64, which was not successful. Production began in 1972, and the T-72 entered service in 1976. Compared to the earlier T-62 and T-64, the T-72 was successful. It was reliable, or so it was thought. But in 1982, Syrian T-72s went up against Israeli Merkavas. The Syrians lost badly. In 1991, Iraqi T-72s were helpless against American M-1 tanks, and...

While the M-1 has generally been invulnerable to RPG rockets, there are three parts of the M-1 that were vulnerable. First, there is the rear of the tank, where the gas-turbine engine spews out hot exhaust. Put an RPG round in there and you can shut down the...

    The T-60 light tank of the 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Guards Tank Brigade. Kalinin Front. 1942.

This would utilize those production facilities that...
