A-7 Corsair II

The LTV A-7 Corsair II is an American carrier-capable subsonic light attack aircraft designed and manufactured by Ling-Temco-Vought (LTV). The A-7 was developed during the early 1960s as replacement for the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk. Its design was derived from the Vought F-8 Crusader; in comparison with the F-8, the A-7 is both smaller and restricted to subsonic speeds, its airframe being simpler and cheaper to produce. Following a competitive bid by Vought in response to the United States Navy's (USN) VAL (Heavier-than-air, Attack, Light) requirement, an initial contract for the type was issued on 8 February 1964. Development was rapid, first flying on 26 September 1965 and entering squadron service with the USN on 1 February 1967; by the end of that year, A-7s were being deployed overseas for the Vietnam War.

A27M Cruiser Tank Mk VIII Cromwell IV

Cromwell was one of the better things the UK industry designed and manufactured during World War II. However, he arrived at the front of World War II too late, moreover, he was surpassed by modern German Tiger and Panther tanks in terms of firepower and armor. These tanks were also used in the fighting on the Western Front by the Czechoslovak Independent Armored Brigade, which arrived in Czechoslovakia in May 1945. Challenger and Comet I tanks were created on the chassis of the Cromwell tank until the end of the war, and then Charioteer during the Cold War.

American War of Independence 1775-1783 part II.

When we left George Washington and the militia of thirteen rebellious colonies on the North American continent, they didn't look very well with them. A well-organized and trained British army was often able to drive more than armed farmers on the run, and in the winter of 1776-1777 it was approaching the rebel capital, Philadelphia. The advantage and disadvantage of the events that took place more than 200 years ago is that we know well how it turned out. So how is it possible that the Redcoats, whose bayonet attack so many times turned the rebels to flee, eventually lost? Six years between 1777 and 1783 changed the face of the world forever, and we will now see how it happened.

Anthrax

Anthrax is originally an animal disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. There are two types of this disease, cutaneous and pulmonary. 95% of recent cases from the USA fell into the category of pulmonary anthrax. Cutaneous anthrax breaks out when bacteria from an infected animal get under the skin. A person with this disease has small protruding lesions on the skin, which gradually turn into purulent ulcers with swelling. If the lesion appears on the neck or around the eyes, it may indicate a complication. The incubation period for the cutaneous form of anthrax is 1-7 days. If the patient is not treated with effective antibiotics, the mortality rate for this disease is between 10 - 20%. With proper treatment, the mortality rate is less than 1%.

Berlin 2015 Part 2 - travel report

When we were planning our first trip to Berlin at one of the spring meetings, I had no idea that a pleasant coincidence would allow me to repeat this journey again relatively soon. But when I wrote the first travel report, I could sense that Tolkien's analogy of "going there and back again" would falter - more than the journey of the lone Hobbit, it was reminiscent of the Fellowship of the Ring and our journey into the dark dark Mordor. And I could keep that hobbit journey until this trip - this time no one accompanied me, and I was able to make full use of every minute.

So hear the story of the second trip to Berlin from June 9 to June 14, 2015

The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and available in great numbers. It was also the basis of several other armored fighting vehicles including self-propelled artillery, tank destroyers, and recovery vehicles. Tens of thousands were distributed through the Lend-Lease program to the British Commonwealth and Soviet Union.

Dear colleagues,

Once launched, a "guide" to using the new forum will be posted on www.valka.cz, but in the vast majority of cases it is identical to how the existing forum works.

Thanks to Z1 TV

During the last year, you have become accustomed to seeing announcements for Z1 TV documentaries at this place. Unfortunately, with the decision of the investor, this television ended its activities on January 25, 2011 and it unleashed a wave of comments and media responses, which precedes how someone "long ago" knew what was wrong with this television. Let's leave these comments aside, the finances are relentless and the investor's decision is understandable. Nevertheless, I think that the Czech market has lost a very promising project, and if I can speak for myself, thank you especially for the new documents that have not yet been seen on other Czech dubbed television, but also a number of interesting news and analyzes from the world of finance. In conclusion, I would like to thank the entire Z1 TV team, led by Mr. Šámal, the cooperation with them has always been not only fully commercially correct, but especially joyful and relaxed, and I really appreciate that. So I wish a better tomorrow to all employees and I hope that we will have the honor to work together again in the future.

The stories of the Jews during the Second world war come often "completely known" and examined to the smallest detail.

Yet there is a country that managed defeat the Nazis in the fight for the lives of its Jews. That country is Denmark.

I personally have not experienced the war and maybe that is why I am so interested and attracted by the most extreme experiences with a military theme. It's great that you don't have to be a police officer or a soldier on duty to shoot yourself with a sharp weapon . Getting a gun license and a pistol is a bit beyond my financial means for me so far, so I was very happy to take advantage of the offer of the experience agency and order the experience of action shooting at the shooting range.

True story of Bilderberg group

Drawn into a hidden world of intrigue and mystery, Daniel Estulin now reveals what has never been said before. Since its inception in 1954, the Bilderberg Hotel in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek has brought together European and American political elites and the world's richest executives every year to discuss the economic and political future of humanity. The press was never allowed to participate. Likewise, no official statements have ever been made about the group's conclusions and discussions, which, as the author of this book shows, have had great consequences for people around the world. Using methods reminiscent of Cold War spy tactics, and in several cases at the cost of endangering his own life, he proved what no one else could do - find out what is being talked about behind closed doors of opulent hotels and convey this to his readers in The True Story. Bilderberg group . Order at www.bodyartmag.cz/book For readers of valka.cz we have a bonus, if you write the word "war" in the comment at the end of the order, you will get one extra book from the production of Bodyart Press for free.

Ulysses S. Grant - US President, soldier and poker lover

The commander of the Union Army, Ulysses S. Grant, also became one of a number of American presidents who fell in love with the card game of poker. Grant loved this game, and it is no coincidence that before his two terms in office, he developed into a brilliant military leader and winner of many battles. Card training can be one of the main reasons why Ulysses S. Grant succeeded. Both on the battlefield and at the poker table, it is necessary to show a feeling for your opponents and correctly anticipate their moves. (paid advertising)

War history and metal detectors

Numerous war conflicts have left many artifacts in our territory - from the largest, such as planes and tanks, to the smallest - trench rings, decorations, equipment, knives, weapons and more. Some were found just after the war and are now circulating, or are still hidden underground in places of war. These artifacts can usually be bought for a lot of money on stock exchanges or the Internet - nowadays, however, you can hardly know whether it is a copy or not, or you can go to see them in museums. However, if you do not like any of the above variants, you can try to find them yourself using a metal detector. (paid advertising)

WE ARE ON THE SAME BOAT!

Dear colleagues, supporters and visitors of the valka.cz website. The not very well-thought-out effort of our politicians to milk citizens - taxpayers as much as possible, with the transfer of VAT of the absolute majority of goods to a higher ( readly devastating ) 20% tax, affects the future of us all. By shifting VAT on books, magazines and other information sources to this rate, which would be the third highest in Europe, government parties are playing with a complete decline in education. The current "right-wing" government is preparing a step that can bring nothing but another degeneration of the education of the population of the Czech Republic. The result is to be a mass of uneducated workers, limiting their activities to just watching endless stupid series and even more stupid competitions on the television screen.

Publishing is one of the few areas in which the private sector has almost completely established itself in our country, in which there is no chance of obtaining any significant and more stable subsidy ( unlike, for example, agriculture ), and in which all business risks of success or failure are borne only and only publishers. Moreover, it is an area to which the big sponsors of political parties do not go, because it does not give the possibility of getting rich quick. It is rather a constant and everyday toil, which can ( and does not have to ) bring a moderate financial profit. Increasing the VAT on books to 20%, which would be three times more than the European Union average, is completely liquidating for small publishers, which often serve the specific needs of small groups of interested parties and enthusiasts. We are perhaps a somewhat larger group here, which deals with the collection, sorting and presentation of information in a rather specific area of human activity. At the same time, however, we are significantly dependent on professional literature, ours and especially foreign, from which we obtain and compile our information. We therefore invite all our supporters and visitors to our website to attach their signature to the invitation located on the website: http://sckn.cz/index.php?p=vyzva Za valka.cz

Year 2002

Dear readers,
The year 2002 is irresistibly coming to an end and the time is coming when people usually evaluate the year ending and plan promises and resolutions until next year. Although I'm not melancholic from the end of one year, after which the new year will come, let me briefly evaluate what 2002 meant for this server.
