JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Aug. 17, 2016) – Today TenCate Advanced Armor (TCAA) renewed its pledge to protect the nation’s law enforcement community through the Plate Up, America! campaign. Sparked by the recent increase in highly publicized active shooter incidents in the United States, the campaign’s primary goal is to equip all law enforcement and first responders with enhanced rifle threat protection.
“Law enforcement officers are often first on the scene for active shooter incidents and require protection from high-caliber weapons that standard soft body armor simply cannot provide,” said Michael Haynes, Plate Up, America spokesman. “Our advanced armor bridges the gap between soft armor which is designed to protect against common hand gun threats and the ever increasing use of high power rifle threats.”
Launched last year, the campaign provides a platform for officers, their families and concerned citizens to take an active role in lobbying local governments and police precincts to provide funding for the appropriate life-saving armor.
“Now, more than ever, there is a need to protect and serve those who protect and serve us,” said Haynes. “By partnering with city administrations, precincts, law enforcement officers and their families, as well as concerned citizens and other industry leaders, we are confident the Plate Up, America campaign can reverse the alarming trend in police fatalities.”

August 17, 2016 — World of Warships welcomes the highly anticipated addition of German battleships. Meticulously engineered, sleek and powerful, eight new warships are already available in the game. And that’s not all. Captains can also ready themselves for a second wave as World of Warships is poised to add British cruisers this autumn.
“We’re extremely excited to be finally letting these fearsome German vessels loose on the battlefield,” said Artur Plociennik, Global Publishing Producer, World of Warships. “They’re versatile warships that are adept at bringing the battle to the enemy. Plus, with British ships on their way, it’s just another way we’re giving players as much freedom as possible to make the battle their own.”
German battleships dive into the heart of combat, bringing to players several iconic heavy-hitters: the legendary Bismarck (Tier VIII) with its vast expanse of armor and 8 main caliber guns in 4 turrets; the strongly armored Bayern (Tier VI); and the tough Großer Kurfürst, whose strong torpedo protection, enhanced horizontal armor and more advanced AA guns can even compete with mighty ships such as IJN Yamato and USS Montana.
German battleships leverage thick armor, a high rate of fire, and powerful secondary weaponry to make them extremely tough in close quarters combat. At the top of the branch, these vessels also benefit from “Hydro-acoustic search” equipment, which allows them to rapidly detect nearby opponents. In short, German battleships are perfect for the captain who isn’t afraid to get up close and personal.
Not long after the launch of the German battleships the first branch of the British fleet will also be preparing to set sail. A full branch of 10 British cruisers will include Caledon at Tier III, Leander at Tier VI, Edinburgh at Tier VIII, and Minotaur at Tier X. Commanders will be able to discover more about these vessels, lurking across the horizon, in the very near future. Guests to the Wargaming booth at gamescom 2016 can even get a first glimpse of the new line today, during the World of Warships presentation, commencing 12PM (GMT +2) at the Wargaming B2C booth.

The AA-12 is a fully-automatic combat shotgun that, unfortunately, never really caught on with any conventional forces. However, as is the case with a lot of cool and rare firearms, there’s an airsoft version of the AA-12 readily available, and well-known airsoft manufacturer Tokyo Mauri produced it. The AA-12 features 3 cylinders and 3 barrels, with 10 rounds per second per barrel, for a total firepower of 30 rounds per second. It comes with a 90 round magazine, which it’ll chew through in seconds, but thankfully there’s also a 3000-round drum for sustained fire.

You may have went to the theater to watch the new movie, “Suicide Squad”. Although it’s not prominently featured in the movie, you may have noticed an interesting camouflage pattern worn by the SEALs. Referred to as Bravoflauge, it was reportedly created by combining four different existing patterns.
According to SSD (and TFB) friend Spartan117GW, Vance and Brown may be introducing a cap on the pattern soon.

AIR BOLT BY AIR VENTURI Revolutionary Carbon Fiber Bolt Converts .50 Caliber Airgun into Powerful Archery ToolAugust 1st, 2016
Solon, Ohio (August 1, 2016) – Air Venturi, an exclusive airgun, airsoft and ammunition importer of leading international airgun brands, today introduced the Air Bolt. The new, 430 grain, carbon fiber bolt may be used in any .50 caliber precharged pneumatic (PCP) air rifle with a barrel 22 inches or longer, and effectively transforms the PCP gun into a high-powered bolt slinger.
“The Air Bolt by Air Venturi converts your .50 caliber PCP air rifle into a powerful archery hunting tool intended for large game hunting,” said Air Venturi Director of Business Development, Paul Milkovich. “This ground-breaking innovation represents the ideal marriage of airgunning and archery by delivering an affordable addition to your existing airgun ammunition resources. With the Air Bolt, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on an entirely new archery platform. Simply take the .50 caliber PCP air rifle you already own, and add the ground-breaking Air Bolt to your existing ammunition collection. The Air Bolt comfortably fits any PCP air rifle with at least a 22-inch barrel, and accepts standard broadheads,” he says.
According to Milkovich, “The Air Venturi Wing Shot and the Sam Yang Dragon Claw each launch Air Bolts at velocities up to 500 fps, and generate up to 238 foot pounds of energy. With these kinds of numbers, it’s easy to see how the Air Bolt can transform your .50 caliber airgun into a multi-use hunting tool capable of taking trophy-sized big game.”
“In our testing, the Air Bolt consistently achieved groups of 1 inch at 30 yards,” said Milkovich. “With that kind of accuracy, it’s easy to ‘Robin Hood’ the bolts if a shooter isn’t careful – they’re that accurate.”
The Air Bolt is constructed of 100 percent Hi-Modulus Carbon Fiber with a small outside diameter that produces maximum speed and accuracy. With the 100 grain field tip, the Air Bolt weighs 430 grains in total.
