NORWEGIAN NAVY, world's fastest naval vessel
WATCH IN HD WORLD'S FASTEST NAVAL VESSEL
Norwegian navy missile torpedo boat (MTB) or corveta's as they are really
called, doing a drive by past one of the norwegian navy's coastguard
vessels. The corveta skjold is capable of speeds over 60 knots (about
70mph) and is to this day the worlds fastes naval combat vessel. the ships
can reach such big speeds by using there catamaran hulls to trap an air
bubble underneath the vessel, hence avoiding most of the drag. These
surface effect ships carry the same exact armament as the norwegian
frigates (fridtjof nansen class) but do not have the same stamina.

Flying DH Mosquito KA114.
In October 2012 Warren Denholm put our POV camera on his helmet to record
the photo shoot we conducted from Ardmore with the Mosquito and a DH
Vampire over Auckland city in New Zealand, photo plane was the Spitfire in
Take off - 1:49
Vampire & Spitfire Formation - 4:35
Spitfire Close Formation - 6:07
Landing - 13:55
The beeping sound you can hear sometimes is caused by the throttles being
pulled back to a certain point with the undercarriage up, it is a warning
for the pilot during the landing phase but in certain stages of flight it
is ok to hear it and can see and hear how much skill and attention is
needed to fly the Mosquito in formation.
Dave Phillips is the test pilot during this flight.

SUPERFAST GUN MACH 7 General Atomics Blitzer Railgun for US Navy
A railgun is an electrically powered electromagnetic projectile launcher
based on similar principles to the homopolar motor. A railgun comprises a
pair of parallel conducting rails, along which a sliding armature is
accelerated by the electromagnetic effects of a current that flows down one
rail, into the armature and then back along the other rail.
Railguns have long existed as experimental technology but the mass, size
and cost of the required power supplies have prevented railguns from
becoming practical military weapons. However, in recent years, significant
efforts have been made towards their development as feasible military
technology. For example, in the late 2000s, the U.S. Navy tested a railgun
that accelerates a 3.2 kg (7 pound) projectile to hypersonic velocities of
approximately 2.4 kilometres per second (5,400 mph), about Mach 7 . They
gave the project the Latin motto "Velocitas Eradico", which is Latin for
"I, [who am] speed, eradicate", but may have been intended as "Speed kills"
In addition to military applications, railguns have been proposed to launch
spacecraft into orbit; however, unless the launching track was particularly
long, and the acceleration required spread over a much longer time, such
launches would necessarily be restricted to unmanned spacecraft.
The United States Armed Forces[N 1] are the military forces of the United
States of America. They consist of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force,
and Coast Guard. The U.S. has a strong tradition of civilian control of
the military. The President of the United States is the military's overall
head, and helps form military policy with the U.S. Department of Defense
(DoD), a federal executive department, acting as the principal organ by
which military policy is carried out. The DoD is headed by the Secretary of
Defense, who is a civilian and Cabinet member. The Defense Secretary is
second in the military's chain of command, just below the President, and
serves as the principal assistant to the President in all DoD-related
matters. To coordinate military action with diplomacy, the President has
an advisory National Security Council headed by a National Security
Advisor. Both the President and Secretary of Defense are advised by a
seven-member Joint Chiefs of Staff, which includes the head of each of the
Defense Department's service branches as well as the chief of the National
Guard Bureau. Leadership is provided by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Commandant
of the Coast Guard is not a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
All of the branches work together during operations and joint missions,
under the Unified Combatant Commands, under the authority of the Secretary
of Defense with the exception of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard falls
under the administration of the Department of Homeland Security and
receives its operational orders from the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The Coast Guard may be transferred to the Department of the Navy by the
President or Congress during a time of war. All five armed services are
among the seven uniformed services of the United States; the others are the
U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps.
The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the
United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the
United States. It is larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in
terms of battle fleet tonnage, according to one estimate. The U.S.
Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 10 in service, one
under construction (two planned), and two in reserve. The service has
317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It
operates 286 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.
The navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established
during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a
separate entity shortly thereafter. It played a major role in the American
Civil War by blockading the Confederacy and seizing control of its rivers.
It played the central role in the World War II defeat of Japan.
The 21st century United States Navy maintains a sizable global presence,
deploying in such areas as East Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle
East. It is a blue-water navy with the ability to project force onto the
littoral regions of the world, engage in forward areas during peacetime,
and rapidly respond to regional crises, making it an active player in U.S.
foreign and defense policy.
The Navy is administratively managed by the Department of the Navy, which
is headed by the civilian Secretary of the Navy. The Department of the Navy
is itself a division of the Department of Defense, which is headed by the
Secretary of Defense.
