A Memorial Day Thank You

This memorial day, American Warehouse Systems wants to thank every American soldier, past and present, for their sacrifices for our freedom. We also want to remember those soldiers who have paid the ultimate price to defend our country. We appreciate everything the American military is doing and pray for the safe return of everyone fighting overseas. Memorial Day - C W Johnson We walked among the crosses Where our fallen soldiers lay. And listened to the bugle As TAPS began to play. The Chaplin led a prayer We stood with heads bowed low. And I thought of fallen comrades I had known so long ago. They came from every city Across this fertile land. That we might live in freedom. They lie here 'neath the ... Read more

Effective Weapons During the US Revolutionary War

I am often amazed by the technology of yesteryear especially implements of war.  Here are a few great examples of weapons used during the US Revolutionary war.  Both the muzzle loading cannon and the flintlock musket were used on almost every major battle of the Revolution (I'd say all but I don't have the evidence right now to back up that absolute).  These were high technology back then able to deal death to the enemy faster than ever.  I often think what a few cases of ammo and a mini-gun could have done!  Enjoy! Muzzle Loading Cannon Firing a muzzle loading cannon was quite difficult during the revolutionary war. It required a team of 7 to 14 men, with each soldier having a specialized job ... Read more

So What Makes the F-117A a "Stealth Fighter"?

We often hear about the F-117A and it's ability to hide from enemy detection.  I think most understand there is some amazing technology behind the design.  We did a little research and found out the information for you.  Check it out! The F-117A Nighthawk is the first aircraft with the ability to penetrate high-threat airspace while utilizing stealth technology. Equipped with a unique radar scattering design and radar absorbent surfaces, the F-117A is able to attack critical targets with amazing accuracy while remaining virtually invisible to enemy eyes. Vital to the Nighthawk being a stealth fighter is its radar-absorbent material (RAM), which is paint outfitted with a special iron compound that dissipates radar waves. Underneath the paint is a layer of tiny triangles that trap ... Read more

Dillion Aero M134 Minigun - Death from Above!

The M134 minigun is a weapon that no enemy ever wants to face. Equipped with six rotating barrels that can unleash fifty rounds per seconds, it delivers devastating firepower. Too powerful to handle manually, this minigun is typically found mounted on helicopters, vehicles and ships. The M134 uses standard 7.62-mm rounds fed to the gun in linked belts. Magazines for this gun have capacities ranging from 500 to 4,000 rounds, meaning the warfighter can engage the enemy longer without the need to reload. This minigun uses six revolving barrels to produce a fixed rate of fire of 3,000 or 4,000 shots per minute. When the gun is mounted to aircraft, it typically has a standard barrel, while a heavy version is found when it is ... Read more

Changing The Order "On The Fly"

It is a pretty common occurrence for our customers to send in a requirement only to have command change their minds midstream or command to actually change.  Sometimes the project needs to be modified after the order has been placed and funds have been allocated to the project.  Fortunately American Warehouse Systems is a customer service driven company.  We don't believe in letting our clients go away with disappointment so we deal with the issue and make the necessary changes. Recently, a military customer placed an order for shelving and wire storage lockers at an undisclosed location (to protect the innocent).  After the order had been placed and the materials were in the early stages of production, some of the areas were reassigned by the ...
