Videos shows US Marine Scout Snipers firing sniper rifles from a moving helicopter during US Marines aerial sniper training. Video also shows US Marines teaching foregin soldiers aerial sniping.
Sniping from a moving helicopter has its own set of challenges, including dealing with aircraft vibration and down-draft from the rotors.
Once the skill set is acquired, Scout Snipers with a Scout Sniper Platoon or Division Recon element will be able to provide top cover for special operations launched by their assigned Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF), typically a Direct Action raid or Maritime Interdiction Mission by a Marine Expeditionary Unit's (MEU) Maritime Raid Force (MRF).
Wether Force Recon and other elements are storming a pirate-held ship or clearing a terrorist compound, they will be glad of the presence of the snipers in the sky, keeping watch overhead.
Cesilie Carlton, a 35-year-old American high diver, is seen limbering up atop the 55ft high platform as the fast-moving ocean churns past below her, before leaping off and performing several somersaults into the pool underneath.
The impressive and frankly terrifying video was shot aboard the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship by her colleague, fellow diver Sydney Brown.
Video shows a rare glimpse inside a till now TOP SECRET US Nuclear Missile Silo & Launch Facility of the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota.
Rest of the video features ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) test launches.
A missile launch facility, also known as an underground missile silo, launch facility (LF), or nuclear silo, is a vertical cylindrical structure constructed underground, for the storage and launching of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
The structures typically have the missile some distance below ground, protected by a large "blast door" on top. They are usually connected, physically and/or electronically, to a missile launch control center.
These stunning images show a magical moment between an swimmer playing with manta rays at night. In her latest daring adventure, Alison Teal, 30, went free diving with the giant creatures off the coast of Hawaii, USA. Using only hand held dive lights, Alison dived 50 feet, being careful not to touch the mantas as they fed off the plankton in the light streams. Manta rays, who are harmless to humans, filter plankton from the water for their dinner. The special moment was captured by photographer Sarah Lee, while Mark Tipple filmed the adventure.
Video of the US military CROWS Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station Machine Gun in action during live fire test exercises.
The Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) is a United States military term for remote weapon station systems for use within armoured vehicles. The US military has fielded both the M101 CROWS and M153 CROWS II systems.
The CROWS system provides an operator with the ability to acquire and engage targets while inside a vehicle, protected by its armor. It is designed to mount on a variety of vehicle platforms and supports the MK19 Grenade Machine Gun, .50 Caliber M2 Machine Gun, M240B Machine Gun, and M249 Squad Automatic Weapon. The system is composed of two parts: the mount which is fixed to the exterior of the vehicle and the control group.
The mount is capable of 360-degree rotation and −20 to +60-degree elevation and is gyro-stabilized. It is capable of mounting a variety of crew-served weapons, to include the M2 .50-cal Machine Gun, the Mk19 40-mm Automatic Grenade Machine Gun, the M240B 7.62 mm Machine Gun and M249 Squad Automatic Weapon. The sight package includes a daylight video camera, a thermal camera and an eye-safe laser rangefinder. It is also furnished with a fully integrated fire control system that provides ballistic correction. The weight of the weapon station varies accordingly due to different armament modules: 74 kg (163 lb) light, 135 kg (298 lb) standard (including the naval version), and 172 kg (379 lb) for CROWS II.
The control group mounts inside the vehicle (behind the driver's seat on the Humvee). It includes a display, switches and joystick to provide full remote control of the weapon system. This enables the fighting crew to operate from inside armored combat vehicles, while still maintaining the ability to acquire and engage targets.
Protecting the machine gunner of military vehicles due to its ability to be remote controlled the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station Machine Gun makes it a ultimate military defense weapon.
A video of an ecstatic young girl receiving a gun as a gift has garnered praise as well as condemnation from viewers.
Weapons manufacturer Beretta posted a “touching” video on Facebook of a young girl named Presley crying tears of joy when she opens a gift to reveal her new sporting shotgun.
