The USA top 10 most expensive weapons per unit
The USA top 10 most expensive weapons per unit...

#10 Joint Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle - Cost per unit: $1 million
Conceived during the darkest days of the Iraq war when U.S. vehicles were hit several times daily by land mines and other improvised explosive devices, the U.S. spent around $50 billion to produce 27,000 MRAPS to counter insurgent forces. At a cost of $1 million each, the lumbering vehicles quickly became beloved by the troops.
 

#9 Trident II Missile - Cost per unit: $37.3 million
The most advanced ballistic missile in the U.S. Navy’s arsenal, the program’s price tag comes in at more than $53 billion.
 

#8 F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets - Cost per unit: $65 million
The fighter jet, mainly used on aircraft carriers, is the Navy’s nearly $58 billion Swiss Army Knife, capable of carrying missiles, bombs and ground missiles. The Super Hornet per unit cost pales in comparison to the pricier F-35 and F-22, coming in at just over $65 million, with about half of that going to the airframe.
 

#7 V-22 Osprey - Cost per unit: $70 million
The V-22 tilt-rotor program has certainly been beset by controversy throughout its 20-year development period, but it seems to have come out the other side, after spending almost $60 billion, and is flown by the Marines and U.S. special forces. The two versions of the plane, dubbed the CV and the MV, cost around $70 million each, with most of that going toward the airframe itself, with a price tag north of $60 million.

WAR DOG - The German Shepherd Weaponized
https://www.mymilitia.com/forums/topic/61164-war-dog-the-german-shepherd-weaponized/

There are about 2,500 war and military service dogs in service today, with about 700 serving at any given time overseas
 
They have fought alongside American forces in every conflict since the Revolutionary War, but only officially since WWI
 

 
They study us, observe us, and they can sense every change in our very own chemistry.
They learn to predict us.
And they know when people around them are having a bad day or about to have one 😉.
 

 
Did you know: A german shepherd dog is one of the few dogs that can smell airborne scents?
 
They do not need to put their noses to the ground. This feature puts the dog in a much better situation in confrontations as it is heads up and ready.
 
Did you know: A german shepherd dog can use its nostrils independently? 
 
This allow them to track not only what direction the source is but what distance it is away. Increasing its effectiveness exponentially.
 

 
The dog are not just used as offensive weapons they also are use by medics to locate and assist downed soldiers.
 

 
The connection to the handler
The bond is so strong between the dog and its handler that the dogs mourn the loss of their handler and in many cases have to be retired in the event of the handlers death. They can also have PTSD from the situations its had to be involved in.
 
Here is a war dog in an airport letting its handler take a nap...
 

 
Not in anyones best interest to disturb this soilder 😜.
 
Did you know:  Every military working dog is a noncommissioned officer?
 
The custom is to prevent handlers from mistreating their dogs; hence, a dog is always one rank higher than its handler.
 
Did you know: Most dogs in the military are fitted with upgraded teeth?
 
Watching the Marines give a demonstration of a GSD take a basket ball sized chunk out of a training dummy was pretty life changing ....then they showed me its Titanium teeth 😳...

Home Security Tip - Reinforced Door Plates
A good home security tip that you may have never thought about.... Most contractors install the plates with the supplied screws which are only a half inch long and come out with one kick by a burglar. Instead install 4 inch screws in their place that go through the door frame and into the framing of the house.  They can kick for a long time before they get tired! You can see in the picture the screw supplied with the door hardware. Making a burglar make a bunch of noise and be foiled in their initial plan can not only give you time to arm yourself but they will most likely move on to an easier target.

Why Maintain a Survival Cache?
Today, we often hear talk of how important it is to stock up on food and water supplies in case of an emergency situation. Stocking up is important at home and at the bug out location. In fact, stocking up on supplies is mandatory for survival. But have you ever heard of a survival cache?
Just think about when you are not at home or at your bug out location (BOL). Have you considered the notion that you might end up between the two locations or you will have to leave one of them unexpectedly and in a hurry?
This is where the concept of a survival cache comes into play. A survival cache is a secret hiding place for a valuable, emergency stockpile that is needed to survive when you have no other options.
There are a few reasons why you would want to have survival caches. Keep reading so that you and your family are prepared to survive in an emergency situation.
Why Maintain a Survival Cache?
Be prepared to survive a disaster with well-placed survival caches hidden away from your home.
In a perfect world, you will be at home when a disaster hits, or in a reasonable distance to your home or bug out location. However, this world is anything from perfect. There are several situations in which you might not have access to the supplies you have stocked up at home or at your bug out location.
In these situations, a survival cache can mean the difference between life and death.
These situations include the following:

The 4 Universal Gun Safety Rules, Plus 13 More You Should Follow
Protecting myself and those I care about is what first interested me about firearms. Given my goal of being more safe in more situations, it'd be ironic—and even stupid—of me to not take gun safety incredibly seriously.
Regardless of what led to your involvement with firearms, whether you came from a similar place as me or not, following gun safety rules is a necessity.
In this guide, I'll be covering the 4 universal gun safety rule and explaining the importance of each. I'll then go on to add a number of additional rules I've picked up in my life that I think everyone else can benefit from.
The 4 Rules of Gun Safety
If you've ever been to a gun range, chances are you've seen these rules plastered on the wall somewhere or been required to watch instruction explaining them.
The 4 universal rules of gun safety are:
Treat all guns as if they are always loaded. Never let the muzzle point at anything that you are not willing to destroy. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot. Be sure of your target and what is behind it. You should ALWAYS follow every single one of these rules, but I want to touch on each individually and explain how these rules can help protect you even if you forget to do another one of them. In the (hopefully) unlikely event you catch yourself breaking one of these rules, be sure to make a mental note of it so you can avoid doing so in the future.READ MORE.... https://www.mymilitia.com/forums/topic/59568-the-4-universal-gun-safety-rules-plus-13-more-you-should-follow/

16 Ounces of Sauerkraut is Equal to 8 Bottles of Probiotics
The success of the traditional food movement boosted the popularity of fermented foods, and we finally realized the wisdom of our ancestors.  People have consumed fermented foods for centuries, due to the numerous health benefits they offer. 
According to Jillian Levy, CHHC: “Sauerkraut, a form of fermented cabbage, has been popular throughout Central Europe for hundreds of years. Sauerkraut combines one of the healthiest foods there is (cabbage) with one of the most beneficial and time-honored food preparation methods ever used (fermentation).
According to the Institute for Integrative Medicine at the University of Witten in Germany, sauerkraut is one of the most common and oldest forms of preserving cabbage and can be traced back as an important food source to the fourth century B.C.
Fermentation simply refers to an ancient technique and perseveration method that naturally alters the chemistry of foods. Similar to cultured dairy products like yogurt and kefir, sauerkraut’s fermentation process produces beneficial probiotics that are now linked to improvements in immune, cognitive, digestive and endocrine function.”
Sauerkraut is made by pickling cabbage in a process called lacto-fermentation. It is a rich source of enzymes that support digestion and help the absorption of nutrients in the body. 
However, the store-bought sauerkraut is pasteurized and treated with numerous chemicals, so it no longer offers the same benefits.  Here is how to make your homemade sauerkraut and boost the intake of probiotics:
Homemade sauerkraut recipe
Ingredients:
6 pounds cabbage 3 tablespoons sea salt Instructions:
Remove the large outer leaves of the cabbage, and shred the rest of it. In a bowl, mix it with the salt,  and in order to stimulate the release of its juices, massage it with your hands for about 15 minutes. 
Then, transfer the mixture to a larger fermentation container, pound it down for the juice to come up to the surface, and cover it with a plate......

8 Essential Qualities That Define Great Leadership in the Militia
#MILITIA #MYMILITA

https://www.mymilitia.com/topic/55309-8-essential-qualities-that-define-great-leadership-in-the-militia/

1. Sincere enthusiasm
2. Integrity
3. Great communication skills
4. Loyalty
5. Decisiveness
6. Managerial competence 
7. Empowerment
8. Charisma

Every one of these qualities is absolutely essential to great leadership. Without them, leaders cannot live up to their full potential. As a result, their team members will never perform as well as they can either. Because of this, Militias must learn the best ways to identify and also to develop these necessary traits in existing and emerging leaders.

How to Disappear without Committing Pseudocide
How to Disappear Completely And Never Be Found

 
I wanted to move into a homeless shelter because I thought that girls who were homeless would be more likely to go out with me.
I had this fantasy version of what a homeless shelter would be like. We’d sneak around to each others rooms as if they were dorm rooms. It would be romantic. Lots of giggling. And crack smoking. Heck, I’d try it. For love.
I had a job and wasn’t really homeless. I had a place to live. But my girlfriend at the time hated me I was pretty sure of it and I needed a change.  Plus the homeless shelter was right next to my place of work. I could’ve lived at the shelter and it was about a 20 second walk to work.
How great can life be? I ask again: How great can life really be?
The homeless shelter director said “no” to my request. He called my references. I had said I wanted to write about the experience. My boss, my ACTUAL boss at the time, said I was probably mentally ill.
I didn’t have that job for too much longer. Nor did I move into the homeless shelter. But they did let me give chess lessons there.
All of this to say, there’s something primal in me that wants to disappear. To mix with what I view as the lowest of the low, to forget about my past, to sign up for a future that is meaningless, to think only about right now and give up everything else.
When I was a kid I bought the book “How to Disappear Completely  And Never Be Found.” 
I don’t know if any of the techniques still work but here was the author’s plan:
Look at old newspapers from around the day you were born to find the names of babies that died that day. Ask your state government for their birth certificates.
This isn’t unusual. Many people lose their birth certificates.
Use the birth certificate to get a social security card (say you’ve been a permanent student up until now). Use the two forms of ID to get a bank account, credit cards, driver’s license....

Boeing AH-64 Apache
The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage, and four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons for carrying armament and stores, typically a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. The AH-64 has a large amount of systems redundancy to improve combat survivability.
The Apache originally started as the Model 77 developed by Hughes Helicopters for the United States Army's Advanced Attack Helicopter program to replace the AH-1 Cobra. The prototype YAH-64 was first flown on 30 September 1975. The U.S. Army selected the YAH-64 over the Bell YAH-63 in 1976 and later approved full production in 1982. After purchasing Hughes Helicopters in 1984, McDonnell Douglas continued AH-64 production and development. The helicopter was introduced to U.S. Army service in April 1986. The first production AH-64D Apache Longbow, an upgraded Apache variant, was delivered to the Army in March 1997. Production has been continued by Boeing Defense, Space & Security; over 2,000 AH-64s have been produced to date.
The U.S. Army is the primary operator of the AH-64; it has also become the primary attack helicopter of multiple nations, including Greece, Japan, Israel, the Netherlands, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates; as well as being produced under license in the United Kingdom as the AgustaWestland Apache. American AH-64s have served in conflicts in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Israel used the Apache in its military conflicts in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip; British and Dutch Apaches have seen deployments in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

M4 Sherman
Medium Tank M4 Sherman

The M4 Sherman (named after the famous American Civil War general William T. Sherman) is one of the few really iconic fighting vehicles of the Allies during World War Two, and one of the most famous tanks in history. But while this historic status was gained partly thanks to its intrinsic qualities, but also due to the sheer numbers in which they were provided, only surpassed by the Soviet Union’s T-34, with a staggering 50,000 total delivered. It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war. It was derived into countless derivatives and had a very long postwar career which lasted well into the Cold War. It has been largely compared to the T-34, and had the occasion to confront some during the Korean War.
However, the Sherman was not as successful as it seemed. Derived in a haste from the previous and controversial M3 Lee/Grant, it was the first to bear a fully-traversing turret with a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was designed from the very beginning for mass-production. Cheap and relatively simple to build, easy to maintain, reliable, roomy, sturdy, fast, well-armored and well-armed, it was the good-all-around armored vehicle the Allies had sought for until 1942, when it first arrived on the North African front.
It literally soldiered in every corner of the globe, under many colors, from 1942 to the end of the war. These theaters included (in WWII alone) most of North Africa, Russia, most of Europe, the Eastern Indies, the Philippines, many Pacific islands and China.
Genesis and context until 1940

A-10 Thunderbolt II aka Warthog
Service: USAF
Armament: 30 mm GAU-8/A cannon; up to 16,000 pounds of mixed ordnance on eight under-wing and three under-fuselage pylon stations, including 500 pound Mk-82 and 2,000 pounds Mk-84 series low/high drag bombs, incendiary cluster bombs, combined effects munitions, mine dispensing munitions, AGM-65 Maverick; AIM-9 Sidewinder.
Power Plant: Two General Electric TF34-GE-100 turbofans
Speed: 450 kts (Mach 0.75)
Range: 2580 miles
Affectionately called the “Warthog” for its aggressive look and often painted with teeth on the nose cone, the A-10 Thunderbolt II is the U.S. Air Force’s primary low-altitude close air support aircraft. The A-10 is perhaps best known for its fearsome GAU-8 Avenger 30mm gatling gun mounted on the nose. The GAU-8 is designed to fire armor-piercing depleted uranium and high explosive incendiary rounds.
The A-10 Thunderbolt II has excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude, and is a highly accurate and survivable weapons-delivery platform. The aircraft can loiter near battle areas for extended periods of time and operate in low ceiling and visibility conditions. The wide combat radius and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations in and out of locations near front lines. Using night vision goggles, A-10 pilots can conduct their missions during darkness.
Thunderbolt IIs have Night Vision Imaging Systems, or NVIS, goggle compatible single-seat cockpits forward of their wings and a large bubble canopy which provides pilots all-around vision. The pilots are protected by titanium armor that also protects parts of the flight-control system. The redundant primary structural sections allow the aircraft to enjoy better survivability during close air support than did previous aircraft. The aircraft can survive direct hits from armor-piercing and high explosive projectiles up to 23mm. Their self-sealing fuel cells are protected by internal and external foam.

USS Texas - BB-35
USS Texas (BB-35), the second ship of the United States Navy named in honor of the U.S. state of Texas, is a New York-class battleship. The ship was launched on 18 May 1912 and commissioned on 12 March 1914.
 
Soon after her commissioning, Texas saw action in Mexican waters following the "Tampico Incident" and made numerous sorties into the North Sea during World War I. When the United States formally entered World War II in 1941, Texas escorted war convoys across the Atlantic and later shelled Axis-held beaches for the North African campaign and the Normandy Landings before being transferred to the Pacific Theater late in 1944 to provide naval gunfire support during the Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Texas was decommissioned in 1948, having earned a total of five battle stars for service in World War II, and is now a museum ship near Houston, Texas. In addition to her combat service, Texas also served as a technological testbed during her career, and in this capacity became the first US battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns, the first US ship to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers (analog forerunners of today's computers), the first US battleship to launch an aircraft, from a platform on Turret 2, and was one of the first to receive the CXAM-1 version of CXAM production radar in the US Navy,
 
Among the world's remaining battleships, Texas is notable for being the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship, and the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark., and is the only remaining World War I–era dreadnought battleship, though she is not the oldest surviving steel battleship: Mikasa, a pre-dreadnought battleship ordered in 1898 by the Imperial Japanese Navy is older than Texas. She is also noteworthy for being one of only seven remaining ships and the only remaining capital ship to have served in both World Wars

Gun Review: Meridian Defense MDC-47 Volk AK Rifle
In the world of guns, the AK-47 has always been the equivalent of “sensible shoes.” While not bedazzled with the latest accoutrements that its AR neighbor enjoys, it has proven itself to be a dependable firearm in pretty much every corner of the world. Its reputation as a reliable weapon is legendary. For all intents and purposes, the gun has gone along with very few real upgrades outside of what a few hardcore users have done. Essentially, the belief in this particular corner of the gun world is “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
While this is a sound principle in most cases, the venerable AK can indeed stand for some improvements. This thought has been shared by many AK aficionados, but one company in particular has put this classic gun under the knife to produce a truly fantastic rifle. Say hello to Meridian Defense Corp. (MDC) and its MDC-47 Volk.

MRAP & Roll: Why Police Need Armored Military-Surplus Rigs
According to most definitions, armor is anything that can be used as a protective covering. It’s a defensive tool that has and can save lives.
Unfortunately, recent anti-law enforcement political rhetoric has turned the term “armor” and law enforcement’s need to use it into a cause de celeb for those whose political agenda lines up with chants of “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
That misguided political activism has emboldened some to target and attempt to kill law enforcement officers. Since January 1, 2016, law enforcement fatalities have seen a record 129-percent increase, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. That included an attack by a self-proclaimed ISIS disciple in Philadelphia who attempted to kill Philadelphia Police Officer Jessie Hartnett. Thankfully, the officer was saved by his body armor. Armor saves lives, and the better the armor, the more good-guy lives can be saved.
Saving Lives
In late 2015, in San Bernardino, California, officers engaged in a running gun battle with two other self- proclaimed followers of ISIS. In the final gun battle, the terrorists fired more than 80 rounds of rifle-caliber ammunition at responding police officers. Of course, most types of rifle rounds will penetrate a standard patrol car like Swiss cheese. At one point, when some officers were pinned down, the local SWAT team moved in with an armored vehicle. That armored vehicle provided the necessary cover from the terrorist onslaught and helped saved officers’ lives.

Beofengs and their Ilk-Banned
Beofengs and their Ilk-Banned
 
 
Yes, but not like you think.
 
As most here who have spent time reading this site know I hate these things. They transmit out of band, they are not certified for anything they can transmit on. The antennas are trash from the factory and they break with annoying regularity.
 
However, a repeater system has banned them
 
 
Apparently as technology has spread for Digital Mobile Radio another issue has come up which has caused the operators of DMR-MARC series of repeaters to ban the use of Chinese radios which have been repeatedly shown to cause harmful interference
 
Baofeng DM-5R test results
 
By Chris Hamilton | 01/03/2017 | Filed under: Uncategorized
 
Rocky Mountain Ham Radio continues to investigate alarming problems with recently released low-cost DMR Tier II radios. This article focuses on the Baofeng DM-5R Plus and Baofeng DM-5R with Tier II firmware update. A later article will examine the Radioddity DM-55 / Tytera MD-398.
 
 

 
Performance of three DMR Tier II radios compared. From left to right: Tytera MD-380, Baofeng DM-5R, Motorola XPR 6550. The Baofeng has the Tier II update applied, making it equivalent to a DM-5R Plus.
 
 
Our tests find that the Baofeng DM-5R is unfit for DMR use and degrades the repeater network. We will continue to forbid the use of it on our systems.
 
Here are our findings.
 
The short version:
 
“Does the DM-5R transmit a legitimate digital voice signal on timeslot 1?” Yes.
 
“Does the DM-5R transmit a legitimate digital voice signal on timeslot 2?” Uncertain. Baofeng says no, but we have been able to activate talkgroups which are only carried on timeslot 2. This requires more research. The radio transmits a copy of the TS1 signal on TS2. It is not supposed to do this. (Updated Jan 5 2017)

How To Survive Indefinitely Without Modern Medicine
1. Address Current Health Concerns
 
Many of us are on medications. We need to plan how to go without to the extent we can do that. In some cases, there is no way to go without. If you have type 1 diabetes and require insulin or need dialysis for a kidney, the 19th century approach is not for you. This reflects the powerful reality that modern medicine, though much maligned, has saved countless lives.
 
The hidden secrets of making herbal medicines…right at your fingertips!
 
Many people, however, can take positive steps to reduce or eliminate some of their medications. Of course, don’t do this without talking to your doctor!
 
A lot of health conditions can be improved without medicine. For example, one of my friends was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Before she knew it, she had been prescribed two drugs to reduce glucose levels and another for blood pressure. However, through a strict diet and exercise regimen, she was able to lose enough weight to reduce her glucose levels and blood pressure. She didn’t “cure” the diabetes, but she got her glucose level and blood pressure down to more acceptable levels. If she can maintain this, she may not need the prescribed drugs for years.
 
Losing weight not only can slow the onset of type 2 diabetes, in can prevent other health conditions as well, such as heart disease and cancer. In other words, good habits now can prevent future health conditions that may suddenly debilitate you in a future without modern health care.
 
On a similar note, if you have a medical condition that can be corrected but is not yet serious enough for immediate attention, reconsider. For example, if you have poor eyesight that laser surgery can repair, or a failing knee joint that can be replaced, talk to you doctor about doing it sooner rather than later.
