Kurds Display Cement-Fortified Military Vehicles Seized from ISIS

KIRKUK, IRAQ—With Islamic State (IS) militants again trying to get a foothold near the strategic oil-rich Iraqi city of Kirkuk, Kurdish Peshmerga commanders on Tuesday displayed heavily-fortified military equipment seized from IS during earlier battles.

    I think they spent too much time watching Mad Max.

    Now that’s some first rate Islamic ingenuity and inventiveness I guess we should start shaking in our boots here in Israel….

      Watch out for the strafe-resistant concrete aircraft.

      • Shebel

        Well ,I hope you are happy..

        You just let loose on the World -Justin’s real reason for pulling out out fighter aircraft.
        He is going to let loose upon ISIS, the most deadly concrete aircraft ever designed by the Liberal mind.

      Looks like some of the improvised armoured vehicles employed in pre-1948 Israel (aka the Yishuv).

        Except the Yishuv didn’t declare war on the whole world, just tried to survive the incompetent arab armies.

      yes if they can just figure out how to keep the tyres inflated and to get out of first gear … another 1400 years should do it.

  • Shebel

    They should have taken some of the nice ones supplied by Obama.
    So much for Justin’s Military advisor’s.

    If this is the best they can do—maybe we should just leave the Kurds to muddle along on their own.

    A few years ago, the Iranians invented a new super strong cement. It is believed to be what they used to reinforce their uranium enrichment facility inside a mountain at Fordow. If ISIS has managed to get their hands on this, it isn’t as stupid as it sounds.

      But,but—Obama has a deal with Iran and they dare not cross the invisible line.

      “… Iranians invented …” no, I really don’t think so. They might have acquired the formula, but whether they could begin viable production is doubtful.

        Read the link.

        the formula sounds very much like the acrylic cement fondue we use to create high quality finish castings .it uses fumed silica to improve slump and polyester fibres to reinforce.

    I heard that isis was working on a secret square cement wheel for these vehicles. This islamic up-grade would completely eliminate high speed wobble.
