Mecha Monday: Buddy Complex



A high school boy travels 70 years into the future, landing in the middle of a world war being fought with giant robots that require two pilots to operate in sync and forming a partnership with ace pilot Dio to help defend the Free Pact Alliance.

Panfilov's 28 — The Official Main Trailer



USSR, Late November, 1941. Based on the account by reporter Vasiliy Koroteev that appeared in the Red Army's newspaper, Krasnaya Zvezda, shortly after the battle, this is the story of Panifilov's Twenty-Eight, a group of twenty-eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of fifty-four Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue Mosin-Nagant infantry rifles and DP and PM-M1910 machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate RPG-40 anti-tank grenades and PTRD-41 anti-tank rifles, they fought tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.

Stalingrad: The Campaign




Army University Press in association with the Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate presents an overview of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in its documentary film, Stalingrad: The Campaign. Opening with Operation Case Blue in 1942, this documentary covers the German advance east and its eventual culmination. The film concludes with the Soviet counterattack, Operation Uranus, and the surrender of the German Sixth Army in February 1943. This film also highlights current U.S. Army doctrine as it relates to large scale combat operations, most notably in offensive operations, counterattacks, lines of communication, and sustainment of tempo.

A-10 with a P-51 Mustang paint job makes us want to BRRRT like it’s 1945





The paint job was the work of the Air Force's A-10 Demonstration Team, based out of Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona, and was inspired by the storied P-51 Mustang of World War II – a fighter-bomber that was the U.S. military's answer to Axis fighters and ground forces alike.

My all time favorite high cheese movie, that anyone who has ever gamed with me has been subjected to! I saw this master piece at the army theater on FT Lewis Wa with a bunch of other GIs (non-stop laughter and thrown popcorn ). It is still a guilty pleasure!

Mecha Monday: Macross Mecha Manual


Monday's weekly post for the Macross Mecha Manual Facebook page has generated great interest and numerous comments. Many fans have been asking questions that ponder how the VF-1 Valkyrie compares to real world fighter craft. Fans have also expressed concerns the VF-1 Valkyrie is too small or is rather odd when depicted at its official size.

To place the VF-1 Valkyrie in proper context, I've made a quick chart using images from the internet. It's a bit rough and low resolution, but it works. Rather than choosing fighters far larger or far smaller than the VF-1, I've picked several real fighter craft that are roughly the same size. This should help fans visualize the VF-1 Valkyrie in proper context. It should also show fans that despite its modest length, the VF-1's volume and construction are rather generous for a craft of its size.

70e ANNIVERSAIRE DU DEBARQUEMENT ISIGNY SUR MER 2014




Remote Control Tank Battle Starts



American Armoured Foundation Tank Museum located in Danville, VA.  Besides an amazing display of over 100 armored vehicles, they also feature an elaborate, miniature indoor battlefield for 1/16 scale Remote Control Tanks!  Participants travel from many states to join the group event held several times a year.

The tanks are fitted with an Infra Red battle system which, when the tank receives a hit, disables it from firing and moving for a number of seconds. Each tank has a finite number of lives before it is permanently disabled until the end of the game.
