In earlier times Calvary weren’t of much use. The Calvary purpose in battle was similar to that of the light-armed troops but they were pretty useless. With the heavily armed equipment and armor, fighting close-quartered battles was not an option for the cavalrymen. They could have easily been defeated in battle. Therefore, they had no other option but to use the same hit and run tactics as the Peltasts but instead they would be on horseback not on foot.
Former Vice President Joe Biden said, “I’m much less concerned, quite frankly with what you’d call an assault weapon than I am with magazines and the number of rounds that can be held in a high capacity magazine”(Biden). The phrase high-capacity magazines was made up by Emily Miller who wrote in the Washington Times that “Many firearms come from the factory with devices that feed between 15 to 30 rounds - some hold more, some less depending on their configuration and purpose. Ten is a number chosen out of thin air for reasons of political theater”(Miller). All of the existing so-called “high capacity magazines” would be grandfathered in under the proposed bills. 60 Minutes discovered during the last assault weapons ban, that it is not really a ban at all.
Have you ever wondered what people used their weapons for in the Renaissance era since this was a time of peace? People came to find out that their weapons could be used for so much more than just running around a killing people. The people of the Renaissance period were starting to find new ways to use weapons and even incorporated them into entertainment. With the invention of gunpowder and the firearm, guns started to replace most of the commonly used weapons on the battlefield.The weapons of the Renaissance were not only designed for their functional use to hunt but they were also designed to be decorations and look good as well as being used to compete in tournaments. Just like in today 's world, hunting was a big part of the way of life
This ability to plan wisely when preparing for battle, after many years of experience, gave Spartan kings and military officers an advantage over empires with less experienced leaders when heading into war. Battle plans for defense and attack were devised with years of practice behind them and therefore were stronger than most empires’. Their soldiers were heavily armed and had been well prepared for battle after their many years of training in the woods. Strong Spartan war tactics gave them an advantage during combat which is why the majority of their wars were victories. From this, the Spartans grew stronger and more powerful and the empires they defeated fell under the heavy swords of Spartan
It was made up of 10 cohorts (About 480-500 men each), which there were 4 cohorts in the front lines and the rest in the second and third lines. The Roman Legion was a powerful tactic, as for it destroyed almost every Phalanx tactic known, and it was very good at attack and defense within the Legion(s). The Legion consisted of enough men that it could be helpful on both flat and rocky terrain. It is very open to arrows and flammable items, but defended almost everything else. The Roman Legion was very powerful, but was defenseless to big attacks, such as a war elephant or catapults.
The machine gun would fire out 600 rounds per minute. But the machinegun was the only major improvement as all the other advances in technology were flawed or didn’t have much of an impact for example, tanks. The introduction of tanks to ground warfare was supposed to be revolutionary. This wasn’t precisely the case since the tanks would have troubles when maneuvering through rough terrain and would easily break down. Heavy artillery would be a big back up since 70% of all men in war were killed by heavy artillery, although efficient at killing men, artillery was not precise enough to destroy neither trenches nor bunkers, another
Too often, many cops will use just their front panels during the summer.Some police officers don 't even bring their vest which results in them sometimes being killed in the line of duty.I think that most police don’t wear their vest because it’s to hot sometimes.Maybe it’s just to heavy. There is only a few guns that can penatrate through a vest.I think that gun would have to have some type of gas or have some type kick.I think that cops are more likely to have backface deformation because they are the people who get shot at the more.Therefor i think that they should start making more bullet proof clothes. The bulletproof vest to sum it all up i would say that wearing the vest has some prons and cons.Sometimes it’s to hot to wear the vest well that just makes the user harder to use the vest.It can take a full riffle round.Dont forget to always switch out your vest each time it gets used. If you dont use it that much switch it out every 5 years.That’s how long a well taken care of vest should
One technology advancements were the swords carried by the Spanish Soldiers. “The conquistadors who swept through the New World were armed with steel swords.” The Spanish came to the New World with steel, a material the native tribes have not used or perhaps seen until the conquest. These swords had a devastating effect on the tribes as it could easily cut through the light garments the natives were accustomed to wearing. Along with swords came armor, “the latest forging techniques were used to create the strongest, sturdiest, lightest and most flexible armor.” This armor would prove to be very useful in
One person would fire the 400 round gun and the other would cool it down with a water jacket. In WW2 machine guns became a one person job. The gun was made to shoot only 250 rounds so that when reloading it can give time to the weapon to cool down. This gives more soldiers to use rather than being a man who cools down machine guns. This made a large improvement because now there were even more numbers being used to go on the offensive or the defensive position.
These rifles were like nothing anyone had ever seen at this time. They could fire multiple shots before needing to be reloaded. And less time reloading, means less time to get shot at. The most famous of these guns, the Spencer carbine, could fire an astounding seven shots in 30 seconds. All in all these repeating rifles changed the war for the north, but according to history.com “Civil War Technology, they state “Like many other Civil War technologies, these weapons were available to Northern troops but not Southern ones: Southern factories had neither the equipment nor the know-how to produce them.” (history.com) These accounted for over 90% of all injuries/fatalities for the entire
The most significant way a knight has an advantage is through armor. In document D written by the DBQ project, it says,”Knights began to wear complete suits of plate armor, constructed from metal.” This means that knights were stronger than samurai armor wise where samurai armor is weak in the rain. To add on, another piece of evidence that supports my claim is in document D written by the DBQ project, it states,” Not only was the entire body covered, but knights also wore helmets, gloves, and shoes of steel.” This evidence shows that knights were fully covered in armor unlike samurai where there dominant arm (right) was left vulnerable. These are just a few reasons to support my claim but I can give you more.
The thing that people don 't understand is that, yes gun owners want to take advantage of this open carry law, but most people that have their license will still conceal their weapons as they don 't want the attention. Most say that when the heat, calms down on all the law changing that they might be more comfortable with open carrying so it’s more of a usual thing to be around. Now gun carriers know all the risk of having their guns visible. Most of the instructors that teach the classes tell them that showing your gun can possibly make you the first target in a situation. Having an open carry they know that it could backfire on them.
