HALO jumps are used to enter hostile territory undetected when threats to both Airmen and aircraft are expected.
Chinese Military Tows 'Rubber' Gun
YouTube user China Lian uploaded this video showing a procession of Chinese military trucks towing equipment down a public highway. The not-so-simple part is when you notice that the lead truck--pulling what can only be described as a massive cannon--seems to be having some difficulty keeping its haul under control, the gun bouncing along like some cartoon weapon made out of rubber. Fortunately, it doesn't look like anyone got hurt--but the image of giant, death-spewing artillery bouncing down the highway like a three-year-old after a lunch of soda and ice cream is just too hilarious not to share!
