Here's the latest batch of videos from airsoftology.com

Filmed at POW AIRSOFT http://playersofwar.co.uk which is located in Bonnybridge, Scotland. Recorded May 2009 80 players on site from all over the UK.

You get to see a lot of different weapons on this one, and the editor was kind enough to add their make and model.


Here are a few tech tips to help you maintain your gun.

Enjoy!

"Ok, we have a running bet and it isn’t pretty.  It involves Steve, an Echo1 Red Star covert, some revealing pink clothing and a day of airsoft.  If you want more information than that you have to tune into this episode, come on…you know you want to."

The video shows a test launch of Scorpion, a thirty-five pound laser-guided glide bomb developed by Lockheed Martin and a rival to the GBU-44 Viper Strike, which is already in service. In this test, several munitions are released in quick succession from a high-speed sled.

The Scorpion has wings which unfold after launch. The makers say that this can give it a range of at least ten miles, although this is dependent on the launch conditions. A faster, higher-altitude launch will give greater range than a slow drop from low altitude, as Scorpion itself is unpowered and glides to the target. The initial design uses laser guidance, but potential upgrades include a millimeter-wave radar seeker and an imaging infra-red sensor under development.

Scorpion can be fitted to the same launch rails as the Hellfire missile employed by the Predator drone. But three much-smaller Scorpions can be fitted in place of one Hellfire, potentially tripling the number of shots available to a drone or helicopter.

However, as the video indicates, rather than being fired from a rail a number of Scorpions can be carried inside an aerodynamic pod carried by a high-speed platform. As Danger Room revealed earlier this year, Air Force Special Operations Command is rushing a new type of weapon into service known as Gunslinger. This is a system that mounts ten Viper Strike weapons and will be fitted to on MC-130W Combat Spear aircraft, turning them into low-cost gunships.

Developed jointly by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch and the US company Alliant Techsystems (ATK Corporation), the XM-25 is a semi-automatic, shoulder-fired weapon with a five-round magazine and weighs in at around 14 pounds (6.3kg) – about the same weight as an M-16 with a 203 grenade launcher. The weapon's XM116 integral fire system provides the weapon with its precision and is capable of controlling individually each of the 25mm rounds in real time. Based on a thermal optic, day-sight, laser range finder, compass and infrared light, the system can precisely measure the distance to the target and program each round to explode close to the mark via the wireless connection. Capable of hitting a point target at 500 meters and area targets at 700 meters with a range of munitions including HEAB, anti-personnel, two types of non-lethal munitions – blunt and agent dispersing airburst - plus armor piercing, and door breaching munitions, this is one very nasty piece of ordinance and a must have on any soldiers list.

In a nutshell, it operates with the soldier sighting the target and the advanced laser rangefinder transmitting range information to the chambered 25mm round. The soldier then essentially points and fires. After the round leaves the chamber and moves towards its target, the system precisely measures the distance traveled and detonates it at exactly the right moment to deliver maximum effectiveness. ATK says that the XM25 increases the warfighter’s probability of hit-to-kill performance by up to 500 percent over existing weapons and extends the effective range of the soldier’s individual weapon to more than 500 meters.
