        It's about something else, as I understand it. The photos are upscale taken by real artists. At the same time, the signatures indicate that it is either a military or civilian staff of the American Defense Ministry.
        It's time for our military leaders to think about this. A positive image of the army cannot be built with a single increase in monetary allowance.

      This is from the official site of the U.S. Navy, there is a very rich selection of photos with a description, including high-resolution photos. The US Air Force has a similar site, also with a collection of photos.

      Our army doesn’t have time to take HD photos, it’s busy with business, but amers have such a feeling with glamor and effects, even when diarrhea, probably the fog will start.

    About the airships touched ... But they have a future. It is a pity there are very few articles about specialized devices. And there are a lot of them now. And many are very relevant.

    The preview photo shows the MANPADS firing at UAVs, somewhere I read that the MANPADS are not effective at using UAVs. Someone can illuminate this issue in more detail. Thank you in advance.
    1. Professor
      April 26 2013 17: 38 New
      It depends on which UAV, if it’s completely useless with an electric shutter, it’s not worth trying with a Hermes needle, but a Raptor or a Predator can be flunked at a low altitude. hi
      1. 320423
        320423 April 26 2013 18: 09 New
        Thanks for the answer. Professor, do you know if any work is underway to improve MANPADS. it is no secret that UAVs, including those with an "electric motor", are being used more and more widely. Or there may be other types of weapons to counter them.
        1. Professor
          April 26 2013 22: 36 New
          Are underway. They are trying to put a GOS with electro-optics (they say that a helicopter can be shot down by Spike, a similar GOS is being shoved into MANPADS) and a radar too.
          The Israeli military attache in Moscow before being scoured from Russia at 24 o'clock said that the IDF has a special air-to-air missile designed specifically for UAVs. This can be confirmed by two cases of interception of Iranian UAVs in Israel, with the latter case not more than yesterday and UAVs there were much smaller than the first time. Here is the video of the first:
