Brave Women in the Armed Forces of the World

This thread is to honor the brave women that serve in the armed forces of the world. Remember gentlemen that these women are someone wife, daughter and sister and that we must keep it above board and this thread should be clean.

Brief rules to keep the thread alive:

-Photos of women in the military.
-Preferably in some form of military uniform.
-Keep the reposts to a minimum including images within quoted posts (I am guilty of this myself)
-Keep the “wolf whistle comments" out of the thread. Comment such as “she is attractive”, “classy looking in her uniform”, or “I will sink my vessel just to be rescued” are ok. Degrading, insulting or sexist comments are not.

We do not want to upset the moderators, or you will receive the wrath of Jeff and Popeye


Additional Warning: Please keep in mind the "intent" of this thread. The thread is here to honor our "sisters" in arms, that share the same passion for the military that we do. It is understood that IMAGES of women in the military are here for their aesthetic contribution to the fairer gender. However, if your comments or images become degrading or insulting, the moderators will be asked to remove them.

the Carbine she has is the IWI X95. This is a Shortened Variant of the IWI Tavor with some interesting mods. Note her good trigger discipline. now well we are admiring her hand look abover her trigger finger see that button. This is one of the first most interesting differences from the Tavor, That button is the Magazine release. most bullpups place there mag release at the magazine well this makes reloads interesting by moving the release here above the trigger it does two things. first it eases reloads by allowing the shooter to drop the magazine with there trigger finger well moving a new mag into the mag well, second it allows a AR user a easier transition. to my knowlage there are only to bullpups that have this feature the X95 and the Desert Tech MDR

Note the Mepro gunsights on these ladies carbines. Tavor was designed for optics and X95 is no different in that regard. The Israelis are more often to deal in close quarters then longer fights and the Mepro is designed to be a beast of ruggedness and caveman simple.

FN MAG58 MG, note it's lacking any optics or handguard this migh have been taken off the top of a tank or APC.
