Weather very calm this afternoon. The Japan Self Defence Force are doing formation circuits. #aircraft #jsdf #airforce #military #flying #planes #pilots #formationflying #japanesemilitary #defence #avgeek
Something you don't see every day. A very #lastditch #japanese #type99 #arisaka #rifle from the 25th series made at #kokura. But this is not an ordinary type 99. It is a #concentriccircle rifle that never had the #mum. These were rumored to be used by the #kempetai or #secretpolice. The other theory is that they were used by the Japanese government as opposed to the #military. Less than 2000 were made in this series. It is all matching. Look at how rough the production standards were. Chatter on the stock, crude welds, etc. But the finish is original, it shoots and it is accurate. Also dust cover install video is live on my #youtube channel!

Final shots of the #japanese #arisaka #type99 long #rifle. These are features unique to this rifle and the similar #series35 #toyokogyo. First, the rear swivel is on the bottom, not the left side. Second, the rear barrel band has the swivel also on the bottom and not the left side. Third, the anti aircraft wings on the rear sight have "divots" in them on both sides of the wing as opposed to the top only on the type 99 short rifle. And fourth, the monopod was slightly longer than on the standard type 99. The dust cover for all type 99s was shorter by a cunt hair (maybe 1/8 inch). Also it didn't have the bracket inside like on the type 38. There, useless info for the masses. You can thank me later =)

My original WW2 1st Marine division patch with the notorious and often faked "blood border". My great grandfather served on Guadalcanal with the 1st Marine division and earned this rare honor. Only Marines of the 1st Marine division who saw action on the island of Guadalcanal were authorized to wear this patch with the infamous "blood border" representing the ferocity of the fighting and the sacrifice made during the United State's first major battle of the Second World War.
This patch was given to my grandfather by a man who was at the time the Marine Corps drill instructor of the year for Parris Island (cannot remember his name for the life of me but if I was given a list of Parris Island DI's I could definately point him out). The patch was taken from the national United States Marine Corps mueseum in Quantico Virginia.

The Trump administration acknowledged on Saturday for the first time that it is in direct communication with the government of North Korea over its missile and nuclear tests. “We are probing, so stay tuned,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. “We ask, ‘Would you like to talk?’ We have lines of communications to Pyongyang we’re not in a dark situation, a blackout,” he added. “We have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang,” he said in reply to questions about the chances of averting an open conflict.

There was an uncomfortable nook of paintings and prints depicting important elements of Japan's fairly recent history of opening up to the outside world. It was very predictably racist and full of caricatures, though Commodore Perry was a legit ugly motherfucker. Can't find the name of the artist this time but here's an interestingly #homoerotic illustration of how winning the #russojapanesewar apparently felt? Cool huh ┐('~`;)┌ #early20thcentury #20thcenturyart #japanesehistory #japanesemilitary #navalvictory #sailorsbelike #yokohamatriennale #yokohamamuseumofart
Another view of the first of seventeen of the new V-22B Osprey for the Japan Ground Self Defense Force being built here in Amarillo, Texas at the Bell Helicopter Amarillo Assembly Center at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport. Taken about 2 weeks ago now during one of their test flights. Love the paint scheme on it that is 3 tone. Will make a great addition to the military of Japan.

Finally caught the first Japan Ground Self Defense Force V-22B airborne during a test flight at the Bell Helicopter Amarillo Assembly Center at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport in Amarillo, Texas las week! This is the first aircraft of an order of 17 for the JGSDF and also the first V-22s built for a military outside of the United States. Got to say, it is a sharp looking aircraft.

The bayonet I picked up for my Arisaka. Japan used the same Type 30 for all of its military rifles during the Russo-Japanese war - #WW2 period, so it works out well whether you have a Type 99, a Type 38, or even a Type 30 rifle it will fit. #type30 #type99 #japanesemilitary #ww2 #wwii #ww1 #milsurps #militaryhistory #arisaka #guns #pewpew #pacifictheater
