Hand Grenades

Hand grenades are small bombs that have been around for hundreds of years.  Thrown by hand, they are designed to detonate after impact or after a set amount of time.  Grenades come in many varieties, with each type achieving a different result.

Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles

Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles, or MRAPs, are a family of armored fighting vehicles used in the military.  They are designed to withstand IED explosions and ambushes from enemy fighters.  After their implementation in Iraq and Afghanistan, roadside bomb attacks and fatalities were reduced by nearly 90%.  MRAPs can survive hits that would take out Humvees and other military vehicles, saving countless lives throughout the wars.

High-Tech Weapon for the Revolution!

During the Revolutionary War, many soldiers carried a version of a flintlock pistol.  By today’s standards, flintlock weapons were very slow and inaccurate.  However, it was one of the most technologically advanced devices in its time. An expert shooter can expect to be able to fire three rounds per minute with this weapon and must be within 15 feet of the target in order to have any accuracy. Check out this video, which demonstrates repeated loading and firing of a flintlock pistol. Thank you for visiting our blog today.  American Warehouse Systems is a proud supporter of the US Military.
