  • Wild and unusual @nature scene: A baldeagle and a red fox fighting over a rabbit — and at times more than 20 feet up into the air.
It happened at San Juan Island National Historical Park. It was absolutely incredible to see. The whole battle lasted just eight seconds. The fox ended up OK, but lost its dinner. Photo and caption by @livingwilderness #nature

  • German prisoner posing for a photograph wearing Grabenpanzer body armor, September 1917.

The Grabenpanzer, or Sappenpanzer (Trench armor) was a German steel breastplate used as body-armor in the First World War.
. 
The Grabenpanzer consisted of four articulated steel pieces: One big chestplate and three other plates covering the belly and the groin of the wearer. The different plates were connected with canvas straps. Each plate also had a block of thick felt on the inside to silence the sound of the steel plates clanging. The armor being split into seperate parts enabled the wearer to be more flexible.
. 
The Grabenpanzer weighed between 9 and 11 kg depending on the model, and was usually paired with a thick steel brow plate for the user's Stahlhelm, adding even more weight to the soldier.
. 
For this very reason the Grabenpanzer wasn't issued to assault troops, but instead to machine-gunners and soldiers on sentry duty, operating in static positions, where they were very exposed and unprotected against an enemy rifleman, and of course targeted too. This explains why there was no protection for the back of the wearer, since a machine-gunner was expected to be facing the enemy at all times.
. 
The thickness of the Grabenpanzer varied from size and manufacturer, but the plates were usually 3,25 mm thick.
. 
The Grabenpanzer would've blocked a shrapnel splinter or a pistol bullet, but a rifle bullet closer than 300 yards would've went right through it.
. 
For that reason I speculate the Grabenpanzer had the function to make a machine-gunner or sentry feel more safe on the frontlines, rather than providing actual protection in combat.
. 
Nevertheless the Germans still ordered 500,000 Grabenpanzers for their troops on the Western Front, which began being issued to machine-gunners in March 1916. It's uncertain if all 500,000 were ever delivered.

  • Основой конструкции послужил истребитель «Хок-75» (P-36), выпускавшийся с 1936 года. С 1939 годапоступил на вооружение ВВС США. Имел 19 модификаций. В общей сложности фирмой было построено почти 14 тыс. истребителей P-40 всех модификаций, которые находились на вооружении 26 вооружённых сил государств мира (в том числе 2243 самолёта были по ленд-лизупоставлены в Союз ССР). Последний серийный P-40 сошёл с конвейера 30 ноября 1944 года.
