My local IPMS chapter, MMCL held its February meeting last Thursday.  Sorry about taking so long to get this it.  The meeting was great.  If you have an IPMS chapter near you, I urge you to attend and join.  Also, join IPMS/USA.  This meeting we had a guest speaker who works for the Department of the Army, identifying and recovering remains of MIA soldiers.  It was an amazing talk.

 

Also, we had some great models brought in by the members.  Here are a few shots.

The US Army is looking at not only a new rifle, but a new ammo that isn’t the current 5.56mm standard size.  Interesting discussion here.

US armored troops are in Poland for a training exercise.  A good move IMHO.  A show of force may make the Russians think twice.

What a neat story.  The US military still knows how to keep tradition alive.

Stolen tanks?

OK, this is a crazy story.  The Brazilian army says the tanks weren’t theirs.  They look like M-47s, but the front of the turret doesn’t look quite right.

Well, obviously the Germans are concerned with developments in Europe.

I hadn’t heard anything about this, much less that there was a prototype under construction.
