Great article and vid from fellow Texan and former D-Boy, Paul Howe.

If you want to train with Paul, check out CSAT.

I also highly recommend reading Paul’s two books: The CSAT Way and Leadership and Training for the Fight.

Hard earned knoweldge and wisdom from one of America’s True Spartans.

 

 

Know Your Weapons: Russian BMP-Terminator Tank

BMP-Terminator: Designed after the lessons of the Chechen War

 

This Tank or (Tank Support Combat Vehicle) design came in response to the DISASTER the Russian Army encountered in Grozny in 1994-95 when small elements of Guerilla Rifleman armed with RPG’s and Anti-Tank mines took out entire Russian Armored columns.

Note the Grenade Launcher tubes on both the port and starboard sides of the tank.

Grenade Launchers are extremely effective in dealing with Hunter-Killer Teams in urban terrain like those seen in the Chechen Wars.

You will see this material again.

The only real question is whether or not you will use this material against the baddies, or the baddies will use it against you.

Choose wisely.

How to Make Yourself Hard to Kill, according to a Special Operator

How to Make Yourself Hard to Kill, according to a Special Operator

 

Strength always wins the Day folks. (Not Size, STRENGTH!)

This is why I think Rucking is the most practical cardio/strength exercise for the armed civilian.

Using weighted packs on long hikes creates the kind of practical strength and endurance needed on the modern battlefield.
