If you ask the US military how many bases they have overseas, you won’t really get an answer. They don’t make it all too hard to find out about the larger ones—Ramstein Air Base in Germany, Thule Air Base in Greenland, Camp Hansen in Japan. These all show up on the closest thing to an official catalogue of the US military’s real estate there is—the annual Department of Defence Base Structure Report.

    Future Military Robots Explained

    Our wars used to be fought on foot, but then we harnessed horses for battle. Swords were our weapon of choice until guns were invented. Chariots slowly evolved into tanks, and in less than 100 years this [picture of the wright bros], turned into this . But the change that’s now underway will be the most significant in human history, as soldiers from the world’s richest countries will soon rarely come face to face with their enemies. This is a profile of the robotic takeover of the world’s militaries. For years now, the military of the United States and our closest allies, the Europeans, Israel, and South Korea have been…

    Weirdest Bomb Created By the US Military

    Humans have come up with many strange ways to kill people, including an array of different types of bombs. Bombs such as the barrel bomb, which was just a big barrel full of nasty things that caused so much damage they were deemed unethical. There was the famous bouncing bomb, the British invention that bounced on water towards a designated target. When it hit the target it would then sink and blow up underwater. Then people got smarter, and created bombs that had guidance systems, and after that normal bombs were often called “dumb bombs.” But it was the USA that came up with, without a doubt, the weirdest bomb…

    Why Does The U.S. Have So Many Military Bases Overseas?

    Recently, citizens of Okinawa, Japan protested the United States’ military presence on the island. Most were concerned that a Marine Corps base posed a danger to nearby residents, and some held signs saying “ get out marines!” But Japan is not the only country currently hosting US defense forces. So how many military bases does the U.S. have? Politifact found that in 2011, there were US military personnel in 148 countries, and there were roughly 662 US bases officially listed, around the world. But the amount of American military personnel and bases on foreign land varied widely. Nations like Mongolia, Togo, Suriname and Gabon, may have less than 10 officials…

American cruisers and the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier ply the deep Pacific waters, and underneath a Los Angeles class nuclear attack submarine prowls for its quarry. Overhead, anti-submarine warfare helicopters buzz around the carrier battle group, routinely stopping to dip their hanging sonar into the water and listen for the sub everyone is hunting for. Poseidon aircraft fly overhead, their powerful magnetic anomaly sensors scouring the sea beneath the big planes. Thousands of eyes are glued to electronic screens, or scouring the sea with binoculars. Just three miles away from the mighty USS Ronald Reagan, a slender periscope breaks…

    Germany vs Poland – Who Would Win – Military Comparison

    Germany and Poland are presently enjoying peace, but it wasn’t always that way. Separated by a 290 mile border (467 km) – once said to be the most policed border on the planet – the two nations have at various times been the worst of enemies. The Treaty of Versailles handed former German territories to Poland after the First World War, which rankled Germany to the extreme. This was one of the reasons for the invasion of Poland in 1939. 16 days later, the Soviets invaded Poland from the other side of the country. You could say this was the start of some difficult times for the Polish. Poland now…
