    Most of you wont have seen the B-52 fly so low. This happened during a normal low level sortie in which the B-52 contacted the carrier for a fly by but the carrier's radars couldnt see the B-52, they passed pretty low and the crew was shocked to see it. They requested another pass during which they deployed a helo to photograph it.

    The Soviet Ekranoplan KM used "Ground Effect" to almost skim the surface of the water through intercontinental distances...it would
    have been a beast, capable of transporting loads of cargo, vehicles, troops across the seas, whilst not showing up on early warning
    radar until it got real close. They even experimented with it carrying cruise missile launchers onboard.

    They called it the "Caspian Sea Monster".

    2 are French. The one in the middle is definitely British with the L115A3 (.338 LM/8.59mm) that holds the record for the longest sniper kill (killed 2 Taliban machine gunners at 2,475m).

    Accuracy International AWM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Craig Harrison (sniper) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    One on left appears to be French with FR F2 rifle (.308cal/7.62mm).

    One on right appears French too, with PGM Hecate II (.50cal/12.7mm)

    I think this type of tank design can be revisited for MBTs of the future. Would allow simultaneous engagement in both directions, could
    do with a bit of turret modification, better space optimisation and an overhaul of the suspension design, with the introduction of
    hydro-pneumatic tech. A healthy compliment of 12.7mm RCWS, ATGM launchers & optics can additionally be mounted on the
    center column. An autoloader would be preferred for the twin guns.
