Military News and Information Links
Here are my favourite links on military matters. Private Intelligence sources, public think-tanks, and the U.S. Military itself. If you have a question, it is most likely listed at one of these sites. Sites that are more oriented towards current events or specific topics (like WWII), are listed seperately.
Janes Information Group - The premier private intelligence service on the planet Used as a source by everyone (national military and intelligence establishments included) to 'sanity check' their information on what everybody else is up to. Jane's has been business forever, being charted by the English crown to spy on the Spanish Armada, if memory serves me correctly. Hands down, the best source for all your information needs. Extremely expensive for the individual to buy, but if your library (or military educational institution) receives the periodicals you will be better informed than anyone else you meet. I cannot recommend them enough. Occasionally they will have excerpted reports (as the report on Bin Laden and the Al-Queda organization) from their periodicals at a reasonable price. Buy all of them, you won't regret it..
Federation of American Scientists - The best non-partisan group on military matters. This is the best source for finding information on general military issues, as well as specific military equipment and organizations. Janes is much more in depth, with a plethora of in-depth analysis and actual battlefield reports, but this is free! I think John Pike (the director of Golbal Security.org) was the man who set up the military information on the pages for FAS. That's probably why he gets to cross-post it on his site, but don't quote me, that's just a guess.
GlobalSecurity.org - A great site of various current news wires - all quoting someone from Global Security, of course. It has very good source information of military matters (technology and organization), much of it cross-posted from FAS.
Ferret Scout Car - One day this will be my SUV. Cheaper than a Hummer, dependable, and it has a turret. What more could you ask for?
