It is called the Ripsaw, a developmental unmanned light tank built by the Howe brothers in 2000 as a small family project. It is able to accelerate to 60 mph (100 km/h) in about 4 seconds. The vehicle caught the interest of the U.S Army in 2001 during a Dallas vehicle show. The Ripsaw can be built for about $200,000 - $250,000.

The Republic of China Air Force is the aviation branch of the military of the Republic of China.
It counts a lot of women in its ranks…
Awil Salah Osman is an ordinary boy in Somalia. He looks like so many other boys in the world, with ripped-up cloths and eyes eager for attention. But he is different. Awil is carrying a fully loaded Kalashnikov rifle, because he works for a military that is financed and armed by the United States of America. He is only 12 years old, but he is already responsible for his checkpoint and stops the drivers who are trying to sneak past it.
It’s a well-known fact that radical Islamist insurgents in Somalia pluck kids off soccer fields and turn them into fighters. Awil isn’t a rebel. He works for Transitional Federal Government in Somalia and is paid only $1.50 a day. But hundreds of other children come on the front lines in Africa in the age of 9. It’s normal here for children to carry a gun, as they have no other option.
I say – more girls in the army! ;)
