Operators Operating Operationally.

This is a military blog that features pictures and videos of weapons, vehicles, and the individuals who use them on a daily basis.
I find a portion of these pictures from military_armies. Thanks to him for letting me use so many of his great photos.
Enjoy.

Poland Rises.

Like the flame spouted when the trigger is depressed, Polish resistance members found themselves rising to the top when weapons like the K-Pattern flamethrower produced by Polish resistance members during Wehrmacht occupation were used to stem the tide of battle for Warsaw. There were actually quite a number of these weapons manufactured, but all but thirty were captured by German occupying forces before the Warsaw uprising. This being said, these flamethrowers were usually used in piecemeal by the resistance members, but there was a single “flamethrower” company formed.

GROM

Poland’s elite counter-terrorism unit. GROM, which stands for Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego, or in English Operational Maneuver Response Group, but also means “thunder”, is one of the five special operation forces units of the Polish Armed Forces. It was officially activated on July 13, 1990. It is deployed in a variety of special operations and unconventional warfare roles, including anti-terrorist actions and projection of power behind enemy lines.
