Iran’s Flying Reconnaissance Machine Gun Boats

The craft, dubbed the Bavar 2, is armed with a machine gun and carries surveillance cameras.

There isn’t much more info about this. I’m curious what machine gun they are using though.

The design (although functional) looks pretty oldschool.  I can’t say I’m a fan of the color scheme either… they should have went with matte black.

Almost as gay as that drop-leg holster purse you posted. This is what playing too much Command & Conquer does for your military procurement strategy.

Man, I haven’t played C&C in years. I lost interested once it started becoming too graphic intensive (and I got older I guess)

The flying boat concept is not a new one we used them extensively in WW2.

When i started to read this, I misread Bavar 2 as Beaver 2 and laughed at such a stupid name. But these are pretty lame looking. They look like something you would see in a Bond movie, not to mention how easy it would be to take one of these out with a couple well placed .50 cal machine gun shots.

that looks like it would be an easy target. i laughed my ass off when i saw that that was in fact the engine mounted on what looks like sketchy scaffolding. and the engine itself looks like they pulled it from junk cars. id take a WW2 fighter over that thing any day
