Little Kimmy likes his military toys
The submarine fleet is for the most part made up of rust buckets. Looks like Kimmy going for a boat ride in the clunker below.
During testing a lot of the missiles go way off target.
A high percentage of the force is made up of women.
Poor brainwashed saps. Although they would fight hard I reckon.
Looks like Dennis Rodman helped design these camo uniforms.
Way too bright. A Canadian sniper could take one of these guys out at over 3,000 meters
