Wow. Here’s the first footage of the US Navy’s brand new Zumwalt-class destroyer at sea. It’s the most advanced warship that the US Navy has ever made and it totally looks the part, completely bad ass like an Imperial Star Destroyer for the ocean. Just watching it cut through the sea is so damn cool because the ship…
Lots of countries don’t just have military training, but extreme military training. China is no exception.
The Russian Air Force’s Tupolev TU-160 is a gorgeous-looking plane with sweeping wings and the capability to reach supersonic speeds. It’s also a scary powerful bomber aircraft with the ability to launch the frightening KH-555 cruise missile, an air-launched missile that can be equipped with a nuclear warhead and has…
This intense footage shows an amphibious landing exercise performed by the US Marines and South Korea’s Marines at Dogue Beach in Pohang, South Korea. You see the ships swarming from the sea. You see hovercrafts landing on the beach. You see explosions. You’re basically seeing how the US Marines would invade a beach…
When you got one of the biggest guns in the world, you can’t just pop in a new magazine and start firing again. Well, you can but the new ‘magazine’ for the GAU-8 Avenger is so ginormous it needs to be trucked in and requires multiple Air Force guys to get the gun reloaded. It takes time to get giant bullets on board!…
Today, China marked the end of World War II with a massive military parade. But prior to the event, Chinese gaming and tech giant Tencent released a five minute CG clip showing off the country’s military might.
How do pilots learn how to fly a fighter jet that cost a trillion dollars to develop (or a $100 million a pop to make)? By hopping in a total bad ass simulator that mimics everything about the F-35 in basically the sickest video game ever. The pilots in the simulator look like they’re flying some space age ship, with…
Watch the USS Theodore Roosevelt navigate through the new Suez Canal with all of its fighter jets on deck. It’s super cool because the aircraft carrier is so big and the water of the canal is so calm that it feels like the Earth is moving around the land formation that is the USS Theodore Roosevelt.
China Central Television is state television, so seeing propaganda isn’t unusual. Seeing a militarized Mobile Suit Gundam flash on the screen is.
This is a Kurganets-25. It’s an infantry fighting vehicle. Covered with armor, it’s outfitted with a turret, a canon, and a controller that is inspired by a PlayStation gamepad.

Last month, the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force announced that they're releasing a mobile game. Now, after a month and much hoo-ha, they've finally released some additional information.
That's some serious balancing. Engineers at Boston Dynamics are making progress with "Atlas", the 6-foot, 330-pound humanoid robot. Still a long way to go from this to fast robot ninjas, but it's already intimidating as it tries to do the famous "Crane Kick" (or at least the stance) from Karate Kid.
Dubbed the ARES Sandtable, this U.S. Military prototype uses a Kinect, a projector, software, and sand to recreate real-world environments like never before.
"ISIS has refined the mechanics of the sale of violence." Writing for the New Yorker website, Jay Caspian Kang thoughtfully examines how the terrorist group invokes well-worn motifs from shooters like Call of Duty in its recruitment materials.
The kind of swordfighting you see in movies and TV shows, where everything is graceful and balletic and entertaining, is fiction. Nobody ever fought like that. The real thing was messy.
When some male animals attract mates, they often present themselves in a way that shows off their virility. This form of mating ritual is often called peacocking, and it appears that in China's military speed dating circles, it's done through push-ups.
The Chinese Military has some pretty interesting toys. Some of them are pretty crappy, some of them are knockoffs, others are just impressive, but none are like their latest coach bus.
A recent study by the Chinese Ministry of Education has found that the majority of China's college student population is physically frail. But what is the reason behind the fact that students are physically inadequate? Well, you've probably guessed it, the blame is on video games.
"Autumnvale. Serving in Afghanistan, so I created this world so I finally have something pretty to look at."
