Fresh from the battlefields of Afghanistan and other hot-spots come a cavalcade of in-your-face action photos, close-ups, and detailed documentation of the latest 21st-century weaponry and equipment. Special sections explain how they work and how they're different from earlier models. Featured are Special Forces armaments such as the "Eleven Bravo" and the "Eleven Mike"--ultimate infantry foot soldier hardware. Other equipment covered include anti-tank systems such as the M72 and M249 SAW (squad automatic weapons), as well as Stinger anti-air missile systems and M220 TOW anti-tank missile launchers. Other state-of-the-art hand-held arms include the M-16A2 rifle, M21 sniper's rifle, M60 Machine-gun, M203 Grenade Launcher, 60mm Mortar, 81mm Mortar, and the 7.62 mm Sniper Rifle. Then come an array of fighting vehicles such as the M2 Bradley, M242 Bushmaster, Hummer, and many little-known variants, as well as portable armor systems, night systems, communications gear-plus a glimpse into the top-secret future.
