Ever since the beginning of time the human race have battled for possession and control over our countries, hence the numerous wars that have taken place over centuries. When war strikes it is vital that our soldiers are fully equipt to take on what lies ahead meaning their utilities must be continuously developed for them to work to the best of their abilities. Here I have listed some advanced machinery that are only exclusive to America… Let’s begin with the MQ-9 reaper drone, released in 2001 the reaper has been around for almost 14 years, until fairly recently it has only been used for intelligence & reconnaissance. With a wing span of 84 feet, a weight of 7,000 pounds at take off and a payload capacity of £3,000 in addition to this it has a flight time of 36 hours, this is an extremely advanced machine. The reaper is the largest of the UAV’S in the US. This particular drone is able to climb up to 52,000 feet and is also capable of reading other air crafts licence plates from over two miles away. The craft is able to carry 500 pound bombs from air to ground & air to air missiles. This is a mind blowing war machine I am sure you’ll agree. We now have the AA12, this fire arm has the ability to fire five 12 gauge shells per second, due to the recoil being engineered at an impressive ten percent of a normal shotgun this nifty piece of equipment can be fired from the hip using only one hand if required. The atchisson is capable of firing a fragmentation grenade which goes by the name of a FRAG-12 able to reach 175 meters with equal efficiency. The AA12 is able to fire up to 9,000 rounds without it requiring a clean or becoming jammed, making this piece extremely beneficial whilst in action. In order to activate the fire arm you simply hold down the trigger, for all of four seconds, emptying the 20 round drum. Last but not least we have the XM25 Individual air burst weapon system (IAWS), often known as ”the punisher” released this year by the American forces in Afghanistan, this machine fires the latest 25mm grenade at a distance of a an astonishing 500 meters. The distance of the target is determined by a range finder and is transmitted to the grenade located in the firing chamber, as the grenade leaves the barrel it spirals towards the enemy, measuring the distance it has travelled by the amount of spirals it has completed before reaching its destination. You are able to manually programme the fire arm in order to hit enemy bunkers from a distance of ten meters. This revolutionary machine has transformed the way our soldiers battle by cutting the amount of time it would usually take to perform an operation by vast amounts.
