Yeah speed kills us. The Shermans and Strykers proved that.

True, but an improved Sherman model did do us well into 1944, the biggest problem was the lack of armour and the fatel ammunition storage. The Stryker just got started, so how can we say it's bad? It's certainly better then what everyone else has as far as APCs and LAAVs. [/url]

SHERMAN
 
 

Topic: Hey now....


Maybe the improved sherman dident do well in 1944....But the Israeli Sherman M50/51 with the 105mm(yes i know its my name, thats why i have to defend it....) were devstating to T55s and T62s.....Even in 1973, when they were already 30 years old. That is my favorit military equipment....Good old sherman with a new engine, IR system, Fire Control Mechanisem,105mm L7 gun....well you see its not really a
Sherman....More like a Centurion shaped like a Sherman.....

It has got to be the C-5 Galaxy aircraft. or the C-130 Hercules. Before you can shoot it..you have to get it there. actually, these were multi-purpose aircraft...if you really wanted to be sure the enemy never got up again, you just crashed the GLOB on top of them!

My dad told me that one of the largest bombs ( in destructive power anyway) dropped on the vietmanese during the viet nam conflict was actually dropped from a C-130. A large Fuel air bomb was carfully loaded on a pallet, flown over to the drop area, puled out of the aircraft by parachue, and exploded just above the ground line for maximum effect.

by the way it stands for Ground Loving Old Bastard.

Topic: F-15E


F-15E is constantly upgraded, making it the best fighter in the world. Multiple lock on, fast speed, nice arment, bombs and missiles and every thing. Even Su-37 is afraid of it.
