Superb. We are either better or on par with other nations. There are very few instances of superiority in equipment. And even those are debatable

First of all, the topic belongs under military hardware. Anyways, every militarily advanced nation out there has something to equal or come close to equalling our lovely US military stuffs in almost every category. We have more AWACS and Aircraft Carriers than anyone by a long shot of course. I don't know of anything slated to begin production that would outclass the F22 (exceptions being American made anyways, if there are any).

In tanks, basically latest M1 Abrams = latest Merkava = latest Crusader = T90 ... The winner of best assault rifle is not obvious, and is also dependent on preference and personal opinion. Etc, etc, etc.

You should look through the posts in Military Hardware, there's a ton of comparisons with lots of good info on stuff.

I'm impressed by US weaponry, but in my personal opinion, Canada has some 'superior' weapons in some fields. Mind you...it might not just be the weapons, but the personelle using them.

I guess one would have to classify by "our weapons" do you mean weapons made in the US or weapons used by the US in service.

But my father can do that to your father, god damnit! just kidding

Im sure that most modern countries have a rather equal arsenal as many weapons and systems are manufactured by/in cooperation with other countries weapon manufactures.

Like United Defence.

http://www.uniteddefense.com

Which is a american company that has bought other countries weapon manufactures. The companys are still based in the original contry and obays local laws and have local workers, in this way you get the original companys knowlage but still own them. In this way its easyer to cooperate.

I suggest you change the topic name to USA weapons. "our" is not a good termin an International forum. I have to say the USa has very impressive weapons indeed. I think one of the main advantages is in on-the-field intell and conroll, such as the UAVs:

And the AWACS system:

But again how would the OUR or the US weapons be defined? weapons made in the USA, weapons made for the USA? Weapons used by the USA.


For example if one were to say the m249 saw is the best light MG/squad automatic weapon...neat but not made in the US but used by the US.
