Shape-Shifting Mini Tank Transforms Into An Infinite Number Of Vehicles

Estonian defence company Milrem has developed a seriously cool military robot that is totally modular, so that it can easily morph from an unmanned combat unit, to a humanless firefighter, to a makeshift medevac.


Watching A Homemade Tank Get Built Is Totally Awesome

Video: If you have a dream, a workshop, a lot of free time and live in Russia, you can basically make anything with your bare hands. This is what I’ve learned from watching UFO Garage. They made a homemade MS-1 tank (the first Soviet designed tank). It’s totally unstoppable in any weather (look at it plow through that snow and slide through that ice) and looks like so much fun to drive.


Amazing Photo Of M1 Abram Tanks Surrounded In A Force Field Of Dust After Firing Its Cannon

Image Cache: So. Cool. Here’s a photo from the US Army showing M1A2 Abram tanks and a M2A3 Bradley fighting vehicle during a live-fire demonstration. Because their cannons have kicked up the sand from the ground, they almost look like desert sand sculptures. But then they start to take shape and you realise that yep, they’re war machines.


US And South Korea's Biggest Live Fire Drill Ever Was Madness

There are so many things going on in this year’s US and South Korea’s live fire exercise that it’s hard to remember what you’re seeing because each drill just keeps raising the ante over the previous one. All I know is that there were a ton of tanks, helicopters that filled the sky, planes that scorched flybys, and so many explosions that ripped up the Earth.


Here's A M1 Abrams Tank Shooting Out A Giant Fireball

What a perfect picture. A M1 Abrams tank is seen frozen in time as it blasts out its 120mm gun, shooting out a giant fireball that looks more like a fire cloud than anything else. It’s funny because the rest of the picture seems so calm but that giant boulder of fire is anything but.


Behold The M1 Abrams Tank Blasting Its Cannon Like A Fire Beast

It’s not only the fire breathing blast that’s cool in this photo of a M1 Abrams firing its 120mm smoothbore cannon, it’s also the dirt rising from the ground and the dust that surrounds the tank like a forcefield. There is so much power in one picture.


Monster Machines: We Find Out What It's Like To Ride Inside An Authentic WW2-Era Tank

The Matilda II Mark IV was an Allied infantry tank of the Second World War. Noted for its formidably armored hull, it was one of the primary tanks used by Australian Army regiments during New Guinea, Bougainville and Borneo campaigns. Last week, we stepped inside one of these 25-tonne death machines for an authentic taste of World War II driving. Here are the photos.


Monster Machines: South Korea's Black Panther Battle Tank Shoots Parachute Bombs

When your neighbours are Kim Jung-un level crazy, you’d better make sure your defenses are bigger and badder than anything they can throw at you. Or at least just as crazy, like the K2 Black Panther’s parachute munitions.


Watch The Pentagon Wars Because Bureaucracy Sucks

Video: After spending my entire week wrestling with the Kafka double-whammy of healthcare and taxes, I feel like I’m about to drown in paperwork. But no matter how bad the from-filling gets, The Pentagon Wars is living (and hilarious) proof that things can always get worse.


DARPA's Experimental Tank May One Day Dodge Incoming Threats

Last month, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency introduced what a next-generation tank might look like. Known as the Ground X-Vehicle Technology (GXV-T) program, this experimental vehicle is less like the traditional heavily armoured brutes typically on the battlefield. These are built for speed.
