Success and Failure

Once again we have a legendary Churchill quote to inspire you on a dull day. Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts. It’s so true. There are many times I have quoted this to encourage myself or others to carry on despite a setback, or to […]

We continue our Quotes theme with another Churchill gem, this time regarding his views on having enemies. It’s rather hard to argue with him on this one isn’t it? Having enemies means you took a stand on something, right or wrong: you stepped up and did something, rather than keeping you head down and going […]

This was the 4th nuclear weapon ever detonated and the test was aimed at finding out how effective nuclear weapons are against warships. This was the second blast […]

The Silent Service

Our latest ships-themed HD wallpaper is here. This time we have a great shot of a US Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine leaving port for a deterrence patrol. Known in the Navy as Boomers, these boats are built to lurk in the deep oceans, watching and waiting for the order that everyone hopes will never come. […]

The Warthog

Ah, the A-10A Warthog. Quite possibly the ugliest warplane ever to fly. But there is a good reason this ugly bird still serves: it’s so damn good at it’s job. It doesn’t need to be beautiful to wow the crowds, not when it’s combat record speaks for itself. The plane itself is built around a […]

Dropping Bombs

As a follow-up to yesterday’s B-52 wallpaper, we have here a great picture of the Stratofortress in action, dropping tonnes (literally) of bombs on some unfortunate target. The ability to accurately drop dozens of bombs from high altitude ensures the B-52 will remain in service for many years to come. This amazing wallpaper is free […]

The B-52

This vast aircraft was designed in the late 40′s, put into service in the 50′s and yet remains in service today, and is expected to go on serving for many more years. It’s amazing longevity stems from its adaptability […]

HMS Victory

HMS Victory, Nelson’s legendary flagship at Trafalgar, was a 100-gun first-rate ship of the line, built in 1765 and remaining in service to this day. With over 800 men aboard, conditions were cramped and battles were fierce and brutal. Cannons fired, muskets flashed and men, including Lord Nelson himself, succumbed to mortal wounds. This image […]

HMS King George V

We continue our ships theme with another mighty warship, this time the HMS King George V, a super-dreadnought battleship built just prior to World War Two. Her main armament is clearly visible in it’s unusual arrangement of a quad-turret with a twin turret superfiring over it. The quad turrets were an innovative way to save […]

We’re back with another great ship wallpaper for you, this time featuring the mighty aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, CVN-65, on patrol in the Persian Gulf. In this image, the venerable carrier is turning hard to port to bring her bows into the wind, a necessary move prior to launching aircraft from her catapults. The extreme […]

The fighter has launched from the midships catapults, and the still-raised blast deflector is visible next to an E-2C Hawkeye radar aircraft being readied for launch. Other F/A-18′s of the carrier’s […]

F-15 Breaking the Sound Barrier

We’re back to our Planes category with another stunning and perfectly-timed image of an American F-15 fighter jet, this time just as it’s breaking the sound barrier. The build-up of pressure and sound waves from the jet’s flight has gathered into that weird looking disc of water vapour around the fighter’s rear. in a fraction […]
