Military.com has a feature on their site that I recently discovered while I was searching the web for links I could include with my recent article on the Nikonov AN-94 "Abakan" assault rifle, titled "Nikonov AN-94 ‘Abakan’ Assault Rifle: Advanced Russian Small Arms Tech".
The feature I discovered is called "SoldierTech: Military Gear and Gadgets". It basically highlights the latest military armament and equipment technology. Much of SoldierTech’s focus is on the indivdual infantry/combat soldier, and thus the name. However, some of the articles discuss larger-ticket weapons and equipment. The SoldierTech articles are informative and include some good pics of the subject matter. They’re worth taking a look at.
