    Inside The Arms Room of The Swiss Guard (Well they are basically Vatican army...sort of)

    "The unit is famous for its antiquated-looking formal dress and arms, but as we’ll see, they have access to much more modern weapons as their duties are not simply ceremonial. I recently returned from a trip to the Eternal City with my wife’s family and was able to make a tour that I thought you might enjoy hearing about.  Being a Marine with a similar duty, I had a special interest in seeing the barracks of my counterparts in the Vatican — so when my brother-in-law said he could get us and a tour of the armory of the world’s oldest continuously operating army — I jumped at the chance
    The Guardia Svizzera Pontificia, or Pontifical Swiss Guard, has operated continuously for over 509 years.  This reinforced company sized unit is composed of 110 men.  They are led by a commandant and three officers, 1 SNCO and 25 NCO’s.  The courtyard was draped with large flags representing the different states in Switzerland. Blonde children were running around the courtyard, in a quiet respite from Rome’s busy streets, just on the other side of the walls.
    The army of Vatican City is perhaps best known for their ceremonial duties, but they also perform body-guard duties comparable to our U.S. Secret Service (they perform a blend of both uniform and special agent division duties).  Personal security of the pope is split between the Vatican Police and Swiss Guard. I was surprised that we were led into the armory, and without all the usual tell-tale signs of a leatherneck’s iteration.  It was clear that this was not the storehouse of (all) their modern weapons, but it was a functioning armory nonetheless.  Given the unit’s age, it is no small collection."




    "The armory had halberds, swords, bayonets the length of swords, two-handed swords, a blunderbuss that must have weighted 40 lbs, and bolt-, semi-, and automatic weapons used throughout their history.  There were also the traditional medieval sets of armor that they are famous for, weighing close to 40lb each.  These armor suits are still worn daily.  It amazed me how far we have come in both personal protection and weapon technologies, and that one organization experienced these many developments first hand.  Remarkable.
    I was only able to identify two weapons from sight- the pair of Sig 550’s and an MP40. (We can plug those gaps for him — Ed.) The latter was surrendered at the end of WWII by a Nazi soldier whose unit besieged the Vatican during the war.  Shortly before Rome was abandoned by the Germans, he turned himself over to the Swiss Guards.  The unnamed soldier’s weapon and helmet are still kept there in pristine condition alongside the Swiss weapons.  If the weapons in that room could talk, I can only imagine the tales they would tell."




    "It’s highly unusual indeed to see an armory filled with early-Renaissance plate armor and 20th Century submachine guns and assault rifles alike, but the Swiss Guard is far from an ordinary unit. Existing for over 500 years (next year will be their 510th anniversary), the Swiss Guard is made up of Swiss Catholics who have completed Swiss military basic training. The Swiss guard purchases their own weapons with their own requirements, and this is reflected by the unusual mix of firearms housed in the armory. From SIG MKMO submachine guns, of which the Swiss Guard was one of the only adopters, to the extremely rare Papal State M1868 Remington Rolling Block rifles, the armory is both a working building and a time capsule, with weapons serving both as arms at the ready, and a historical record of the unit."

    An extensive, interesting and fantastic collection of color photos, many of them rare, showing aircraft and crews in action during WW2. These incredible pictures I share with you and can be viewed through the link below. Like me, I hope you will also be surprised and enjoy the photos.

    Some years ago i saw some video on youtube by some alledged Canadian afghanistan "VETERAN" who held an AK in some of his videos to show how to shoot the same way, almost like a RPG.


    Veterans the most overused word on the internet from this kind of armschairgenerals with frontpacks.

    Yes, that one is fake. The RPG warhead has no detonator cap.

    What is so special about it?

    New armor, tested with a pistol of a probably fascist guy looking at the current ukrop jewish controlled clown state and their volunteers.

    Shot with an AK-47 at least or its worth nothing.

    It is not, that is traditional testing of body armor and armor overall.

    I would not dare calling it "traiditional", Alex Armor factory where that i visited use jelly blocks for quality testing of materials delivered (micro Dynema instead of kevlar). And i highly doubt any other factory anywhere would use an actual man to test their body armor.

    However you can always find videos of people doing something stupid.

    That is fake video, but anyways that is indeed traditional testing, because noone believed or trusted WINDOWS to be bulletproof aswell body armor was tested that way. A producer that is not willing to test it with live fire is not trusted back then and that is a good thing. If you are afraid of testing your lifesavers with own tests why should anyone believe in your product?

    Ballistic Jelly is also very bad for testing anything. It does not have consistence of human tissue, the only thing it has is the average resilience of human tissue, not molelucalr structure, not the strips of muscles that would also affect the wounding channels of projectiles aswell no bones are used.

    You have occasional guys doing it to prove a point or to show how great and brave they are, or to promote their products. But it has nothing to do with an actual quality control or testing.

    You do not test car crash worthiness with humans inside the car. Also in half of those videos they use pistol 9mm PARA full copper jacket, which shouldnt penetrate even frying pan, its just silly commercial stunt. Also in most of the cases they use class III+ west which should protect aganist .223 and even .308 Winchester.

    Actually jelly these guys used were made on Patology department on Military Medical Institute, they have torso shape and have an actual bone structure including major internal organs so they can inspect soft tissue trauma. It completely replicates human torso trauma except hematoma naturally.
