        My uncle works in the Ministry of Emergencies, They are not called firefighters at work. He himself served in the fire department. So the dictionary is a dictionary, and the profession should be called correctly, as the workers themselves do

        Well, then you do it! Everyone will be just for it. Although I like to watch both these and ours and any other army in the world. The site is like a military review.
        As my father, who served for many years in the SA, said (I showed him this site): "Show me something NATO, I have seen enough of mine ... I'm also interested in someone else's."

    You are not attentive to photographs, except for the Blue Angels they just learn to fight. Not for nothing that each photo shows the name of the unit and the place of events.

    Nobody asks for them from there. Germany is more than satisfied. Nevertheless, they themselves are withdrawing troops and weapons. So for example, all tanks and attack aircraft Warthogs have already withdrawn.

        Not the Israeli citizen to talk about it.

        Shchaz, everyone will venerate right away as the Germans will resurrect all those killed by them.


        Not amers who burned a bunch of German cities to demand this, but only the Russians have the right to do so, but they behaved like wars and did not require anything.

        It’s not up to you to decide for a long time, but to the citizens of Germany.

      Like he wrote: "while making a passage by an explosion on July 31, 2013 in an underground tunnel complex at Fort Hood." You can, of course, lay explosives and dump them for 300 m, and here the combat engineers broke a hole in the wall and as part of the assault group forward under the bullets ...

      PS
      The fighting in the building is not only SWAT

        There are many videos where Americans make passages that are in Afghanistan and in Iraq that are about 100 meters away because there is no way to immediately recognize and see the target in such dust. Making such passes is one of the tactics not to walk on roads in villages that are mined.

    The photos are great.
    As the classic said "Learning military affairs in a real way" We must adopt the best foreign experience, even in the field of military PR. The US Army (Navy, ILC, etc.) needs the best recruits.
    Where are the photos from the exercises of the Russian Airborne Forces, Navy, Ground Forces, Unless the general plan, the tanks are flying, the planes are flying, the howitzers are shooting, the soldiers in the new NANoform are marching to a brave song. And the amers have live photos, convey the essence of what is happening. They have photographers in the staff of units, and not just uncles who can press the camera button, but who have undergone military training and know what to shoot.

    Listen professor ...

    You really have good and interesting photos, but in the end you get stupid propaganda of American warriors. The excuse that "you need to know the enemy by sight" is a childish excuse.
    All this will lead to the fact that someone will start to publish photos of the Russian army and the measurement will begin pipiski mi.

    If there is such a desire, then collect and publish photos in all countries, they are. Let it be propaganda of the Army, army life.

    Then - honor and praise to you.
    And so behave as in a kindergarten ...
    No offense.
