Wiley-X gloves, as used by the US military (2009-09-04)

  'So what's this then?' you might ask... Well, that is the Caiman
mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle rollover simulator where they
train the soldiers on what to do and let them experience what it feels
like when the vehicle is blown to its side or turned over by the blast.
  Fun as it may be as seen by the expressions of the soldiers as the
sensations comparative to a roller coaster ride but this is no laughing
matter if it was the real thing.
  This is what happens if you have not buckled up properly. A soldier
is seen trapped in his own safety buckle whilst his fellow comrade helps
to release the straps on him.
On the right: Who said foliage green does not go with ACU?

  Last but not least, a beautiful shot taken with great timing with the shell being expelled.  Notice the bolt is still fully open and the dust and sand under the arms and the sand bags kicked loose from the shockwave of the shot.
