War has to be outfitted. A war stage requires certain essential accessories, props, and scripts. When you hear rumors of war, or read about actual conflict, you can rest assured that players from different and distant stages are supplying what is needed. They are arms dealers, full time people, all profiting from conflict. Those war related needs extend from personal to weapons. Where these requirements originate from can be very important strategic intelligence.
The U.S. government approved a license to supply lethal weapons Ukraine
“Administration officials confirmed to the Washington Post that the state Department earlier this month approved a license for commercial exports to Ukraine M107A1 sniper rifles and also ammunition, components, and the appropriate equipment. The sales volume is estimated at 41.5 million dollars.”
The M107A1 sniper rifles are manufactured in Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, an American manufacturer of firearms and ammunition in the unincorporated town of Christiana, Tennessee. Christiana is in the 35° North Branch of the wider U.S. WIP at 35° North 42’36”. Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc., hires 100 full time people from around Christiana, TN.
“The State Department said Friday that the administration would supply the government in Kiev with Javelin anti-tank missiles to destroy armored vehicles used by Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, and to raise the cost of Russia’s intervention in the conflict.”
“Though the Javelin’s tandem HEAT warhead has proven efficient at destroying tanks, most threats it was employed against in Iraq and Afghanistan were weapon crews and teams, buildings, and lightly armored and unarmored vehicles. To make the Javelin more useful in these scenarios, the Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center developed a multi-purpose warhead (MPWH) for the FGM-148F. While it is still lethal against tanks, the new warhead has a naturally fragmenting steel warhead case that doubles the effectiveness against personnel due to enhanced fragmentation. The MPWH does not add weight or cost and has a lighter composite missile mid-body to enable drop-in replacement to current Javelin tubes.”
