  • IAI I-View

    The IAI I-View (Eye-View) is a small reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle developed in Israel in the early 21st century. Like other UAVs produced by IAI, it has fixed landing gear and an 18.6 kW (25 hp) piston engine. The Eye-View is also being promoted in civilian markets for forest fire warning, and in this form is appropriately known as the FireBird.

  • Benjamin Franklin class nuclear submarines

    Benjamin Franklin submarines are sister vessels of the Lafayette class. In fact, it is not possible to distinguish vessels of both classes from each other, because the submarines are completely visually identical. But even so, submarines from the USS Benjamin Franklin are taken as a separate class for a simple reason. Some changes were made inside the submarine in the interior equipment.

  • Lafayette class nuclear submarines

    Lafayette-class vessels represent the 2nd generation of US Navy submarines carrying ballistic guided missiles of intercontinental range, which formed part of the nuclear triad for 3 decades. The new class was designed in the early 1960s at the General Dynamics Electric Boat Division in Connecticut.

  • Israeli tank Magach 7A

    The Magach 7 is a comprehensive upgrade package for Israel's M60 series tanks, which was the mainstay of the IDFs armored corps. The Magach 7 is a further development of the Magach 6. It entered service with the Israeli Defense Forces in the 1980s. It has significantly improved capabilities over the original US M60 series tanks. In particular its armor protection was vastly improved.

  • Israeli tank Magach 7C

    The Magach 7 is a comprehensive upgrade package for Israel's M60 series tanks, which was the mainstay of the IDFs armored corps. The Magach 7 is a further development of the Magach 6. It entered service with the Israeli Defense Forces in the 1980s. It has significantly improved capabilities over the original US M60 series tanks. In particular its armor protection was vastly improved.
    This final version had a fixed angled mantlet, redesigned wedge-shaped passive armor and gun slots.

  • Ohio class nuclear submarines

    Ohio-class submarines - carrying ballistic missiles capable of attacking targets over 10,000 kilometers away with a force capable of destroying large urban agglomerations and entire states. At the same time, these submarine giants were able to move almost silently and unnoticed in the blue depths of the world's oceans, without enemy forces being able to reliably identify and track them.

  • GOLAN wheeled armored vehicle

    This remarkable vehicle was developed by the Israeli company Rafael, the Mantak office and the American company PVI. It is a multi-purpose tactical armored vehicle with a modular design. It can act as an armored personnel carrier, command, reconnaissance or logistics vehicle, or armored ambulance.

  • M47 Patton

    The M47 Patton was an American main battle tank, a development of the M46 Patton mounting an updated turret, and was in turn further developed as the M48 Patton. It was the second American tank to be named after General George S. Patton, commander of the U.S. Third Army during World War II and one of the earliest American advocates of tanks in battle.
    The M47 was the U.S. Army's and Marine Corps' primary tank, intended to replace the M26 Pershing and M46 Patton medium tanks. The M47 was widely used by U.S. Cold War allies, both SEATO and NATO countries, and was the only Patton series tank that never saw combat while in US service.

  • M60

    The M60 is a tank of classic design. The driver's section in the front of the hull, the combat section with a fully rotating turret equipped with a powerful cannon in the center of the hull and engine-transmission section in the rear of the hull. The tower and the hull of the M60 tank are made of cast homogeneous steel, other components are welded. In the most exposed places, the armor thickness reaches up to 140 mm in the case of the front of the hull, respectively. up to 180 mm at the front of the tower.

  • M60A2

    The M60A2 is another version of the M60 tank series. The body of the vehicle with running gear remained unchanged. The driver's section is in front of the hull, in the middle of the hull is a combat section with a new fully rotating turret equipped with a cannon - a missile launcher and in the rear of the hull is an engine-transmission space. The tower and the hull of the M60A2 tank are again made of cast homogeneous steel and other structural parts are welded. The strongest armor is traditionally in the front of the tank, almost 300 mm at the front of the tower and up to 143 mm at the front of the hull.

  • Ethan Allen class submarines

    Ethan Allen-class submarines are a kind of George Washington-class sister vessels. At first glance, common features and similarities can be seen between the two classes. In the US Navy, after the experience gained with the construction of the USS George Washington and later with the operation of the entire George Washington class, the construction of an improved class of nuclear-powered submarines capable of carrying and firing ballistic missiles. It was the five-member SSBN class - Ethan Allen.

  • Ohio Class Submarines - 154 cruise missiles on one deck

    Ohio-class missiles (SSGN) provide the Navy with unprecedented strike capabilities and special operational missions from a silent, secret platform. SSGN, armed with tactical missiles and equipped with excellent communication skills, are able to directly support the requirements of the strike command of combat forces and special operational forces.

  • Permit class submarines - silent submarine hunters

    A completely new generation, the characteristics of the Permit class can still be summarized. Although, as always, the whole thing is more complicated, this phrase is not exaggerated at all. The class at the time had several so dizzying innovations that it can only be given priority - the first class of multi-purpose attack submarines with quiet operation and the ability of a large dive, designed to fight submarines.

  • Seawolf class submarines

    The Seawolf project was the first new design of a US nuclear attack submarine in more than 20 years. It was to regain its dominant position in the United States and regain its lead in reducing submarine noise. For more than 30 years, US Navy submarines maintained this technological superiority over USSR naval submarines. But with the advent of Project 671RTM Ščuka vessels, and especially Project 971 Ščuka-B in the early 1980s, imaginary scales began to level off.

  • Virginia-class submarines - the first since the end of the Cold War

    The first modern construction of a nuclear submarine, which was designed after the end of the Cold War, is the Virginia class. It was with the end of the Cold War that spending on the then new Seawolf class, which was to gradually replace the Los Angeles class, surfaced. The total cost of building 1 submarine was an incredible 2.765 billion USD (1991), and therefore it was unthinkable to build several dozen submarines of this class. In order not to waste the money spent, 3 Seawolf vessels were built, but at the same time a decision was made to announce a new submarine competition to replace the Los Angeles class.

  • US Missile Defense - NMD (1) - History and development

    As this topic is proving to be increasingly relevant for the Czech Republic (especially recently), I will try to outline and clearly explain the history, development, structure and composition of the "United States Missile Defense".

  • Sherman M-50

    The M-50 tank is an Israeli derivative of the American M4 Sherman tank. The original tanks were rearmed and equipped to best suit the conditions of the time. The crew remained 5 members and is deployed in the same way as in the original M4 Sherman tanks.

  • Sherman M-51

    The Sherman M-51 tank is an improved version of the American M4 Sherman series tank. Specifically, it was modified to 180 tanks version M4A1E8 with a T23 turret. According to some sources, several pieces of M4A3 tanks were also converted, but it is not clear whether this did not happen only by relocating the tower from damaged M-51 chassis.

  • Sherman M-60

    Sherman M-60 is an Israeli modification of Sherman M-50 tanks. These are very thoroughly modified Sherman M4A3 tanks. The crew of the vehicle was reduced to 3 people. The tank driver has his position in the left front of the hull, the workplace of the tank commander and the shooter is located in the tower.

  • Sho't

    As well as Sherman tanks and later Magach, Sho't / Sho't Kal tanks, for a while, formed the backbone of the Israeli Armored Corps.

    No other Israeli Army (IDF) vehicle has been modified so many times and had as many variants as the M4 Sherman tank.

  • Los Angeles Class - still on duty

    The longest-serving and most numerically produced class of nuclear submarines. Class serving as a standard for other nuclear submarine vessels.

  • Sturgeon-class attack submarines

    Nuclear-powered Sturgeon-class US fighter / attack submarines were a direct successor to the Permit (or Tresher) class. They were larger, quieter, and far more modern than their predecessors. The vessels were used for both patrol and rescue operations, transport of SEALs and reconnaissance operations in close proximity to the enemy coast.
