    Wouldn't you just say launch a SAM instead of launch a SAM missile because SAM is Surface to Air Missile? It would be saying launch a surface to air missile missile.

    Women should not be in combat roles.

    Britains enemies are thanking the feminists and Britains politically correct politicians for weakening their enemy.

    I still haven't seen the films that HTV news reporters that filmed us brits in USA Yakima training grounds on Exercise Trumpet Dance preparing for the Gulf war, we were filmed for a news documentary but was never shown, any one know how or where to obtain recording. as a lot of old troop friends are dead now and would like to or could see them in training.

    Not much had changed in 2003 either. I remember spending a big chunk of my savings on decent desert kit before we were deployed just in case, so glad that I did.

    If I'm risking my life every damn day I'm not fucking shaving. What do i gotta look good for god? The old argument about gas masks not sealing properly has been disproven by us special forces and other us military branches.

    i remember this i was 10 years old living at Hickam AFB Hawaii my father just made his Tsgt rank and we lived near an area of the base called the flightline. i remember during desert storm i looked out my parents window which faced flightline and there was 100s planes being prepared.

    C130s,A-10s,F-15 and F-16s and to my surprise Panavia Tornadoes what a fun time for this Air Force brat!

    this footage brought back memories!

    They didn't even have proper desert camouflage. But then again, the American camouflage (chocolate chip) was fundamentally flawed and was replaced in the 1990s.

  • Reply Ian Woods July 27, 2019 at 7:14 am

    Not to mention huge fluresant orange marker panels to put an all the vehicles not a great idea when you want to be camouflaged from the enemy but having Americans as allies nobody can be that fucking dumb and miss the panel you can see 10 miles away,oh wait Ye they can.

    What I do today because of what I done yesterday and what I will do tomorrow because of what I done today is how I live one day and how I will live the next. Aphorism.
