A brutally honest look at issues facing combat veterans today…

Friends, take a minute and watch this intense video.  Afterwards, please do whatever you can to support GallantFew.org.  If you’re a Veteran, sign up to assist a newly returning fellow Veteran to get on their feet.  Trust me, the experience is like nothing else…

Shooter makes mind-blowing 3600 yard shot…

The target: 36″ diameter steel plate, 3600 yards away. Piece of cake! Right? Let’s see – A 36-inch target at 3,600 yards is just under 1 MOA in diameter or 0.5 MOA in radius. this means if your aim is off by anything more the 1/120th of a degree, you would miss. Incredible…

Army Ranger Two-Fingered Message to Terrorists…

Tim Kennedy is a decorated Army Ranger, having served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a Mixed Marshall Arts fighter.  He’s also got a very strong opinion about the Islamic terrorists who committed the attack in Paris.

Wearing a shirt that said, “Free Men Do Not Ask Permission To Bear Arms,” his Tweet was simple and clear:

I HATE terrorists. I HATE cowards. Ironically, they are one in the same. #ParisShooting #parisattack

Indeed.  Ranger on…

ISIS Terrorist Steps Out of His Armored Truck to Enjoy a Quick Smoke – Before He Gets Smoked

I have to agree, these never get old…

This may be the best of the five videos released by U.S. Centcom showing airstrikes against the Islamic State (the terror group formerly known as ISIS). It shows what Centcom calls a “U.S. airstrike against ISIL armored personnel carrier in support of Iraqi Security Force operations near Mosul dam.” It was published August 18th.

You can virtually see the member of the same terror group that beheads infidels and kills children moving around the vehicle, one can imagine him flicking his Bic on a Camel, before being lit up by U.S. forces. At least the U.S. military saved him and his friends the trouble of getting lung cancer. Chalk it up as a win/win

EXACTO – don’t even bother running…

OK, so you are the ‘bad guy’ peering out from your cave; smiling because Allah has blessed you with high winds and dust clouds in the Afghan mountains you live in. You set aside your RPG and with the morning sun on your face, ease out into full view because you think to yourself “…there is no way an American sniper can get me in these conditions…” Then your head explodes…

For military snipers, acquiring moving targets in unfavorable conditions, such as high winds and dusty terrain commonly found in Afghanistan, is extremely challenging with current technology. It is critical that snipers be able to engage targets faster, and with better accuracy, since any shot that doesn’t hit a target also risks the safety of troops by indicating their presence and potentially exposing their location.  The Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) system seeks to improve sniper effectiveness and enhance troop safety by allowing greater shooter standoff range and reduction in target engagement timelines. The objective of the EXACTO program is to revolutionize rifle accuracy and range by developing the first ever guided small-caliber bullet. The EXACTO 50- caliber round and optical sighting technology expects to greatly extend the day and nighttime range over current state-of-the-art sniper systems. The system combines a maneuverable bullet and a real-time guidance system to track and deliver the projectile to the target, allowing the bullet to change path during flight to compensate for any unexpected factors that may drive it off course.  Technology development in Phase II included the design, integration and demonstration of aero-actuation controls, power sources, optical guidance systems, and sensors. The program’s next phase includes a system-level live-fire test and technology refinement to enhance and improve performance.

The program recently conducted the first successful live-fire tests demonstrating in-flight guidance of .50-caliber bullets. This video shows EXACTO rounds maneuvering in flight to hit targets that are offset from where the sniper rifle is aimed. EXACTO’s specially designed ammunition and real-time optical guidance system help track and direct projectiles to their targets by compensating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors that could impede successful hits.  The EXACTO program is developing new approaches and advanced capabilities to improve the range and accuracy of sniper systems beyond the current state of the art.
