OVERVIEW



Despite the advancements have been made concerning the battlefield, the infantryman remains at the center of the war machine. From spear and bronze shield to automatic weapon and Kevlar body armor, a force advances and retreats based on what the individual warfighter can accomplish within the working unit - and the warfighter is only as good as the equipment, training, support, and leadership available to him/her. The following categories cover the history of infantry weapons and related small arms as far back as the 1700s, running through modern systems and up to those possible weapons of a future battlefield.

Our Small Arms section currently boasts over 1,150 individual entries covering all manner of infantry-related weapons including firearms, mortars, grenades and the like - from the early Colt and Remington revolvers and Mauser service rifles to future Warfighter-centric concepts and abandoned prototypes - all can be found within the pages of this site.
