        What with all this talk of being high speed, low drag gut eaters I figure we’ll start going through some recognition exercises. Being able to recognise things such as heavy machine guns, AT missiles, aircraft, truck types etc are all super important.

        How this will work is:

        1. I’ll put an image up of said platform or gun
        2. I’ll check back in 24 hours with the answer
        3. We won’t go too deep in to the nuances. We’ll stick to basic equipment
        4. I will be using various nations equipment including the USA, UK, Russia, China and Hadjifuckistan.

        So we’ll start with a very basic and easy one:

            Here’s one that most of us will never have the chance to own. It is also very popular and way overpowered in the Call of Duty video games. :whistle:

                  You got the MP part right. It is an HK.

                      MP7 is correct…

                      It is a very high rate of fire, very accurate, pistol sized SMG that shoots a weird ass, high velocity, high penetration, 4.6 x30mm cartridge. The caliber was created by HK specifically for this platform which is designed to defeat all but the very toughest of body armor, and was specifically designed with the elite special forces in mind.

                      it’s the one on the left

                                                  BMD is what I would have said if I hadn’t been beaten to it (at work images are often blocked).

                                                  Question:

                                                  Which was the first Tank equipped with infrared night vision for driving and shooting at night?

                                                                              Ill stick with A129
