Military history

This article lists military technology items, devices and methods. The classification of weapons of war is one of the research issues of military science.


Martial arts

Martial arts, also known as fighting systems, are bodies of codified practices or traditions of training for unarmed and armed combat, usually without the use of guns and other modern weapons.

Military Weapons

A firearm is a hand carried weapon that fires either a single or multiple projectiles using the gases produced by the rapid confined burning of a propellant.

Artillery are usually large caliber weapons firing projectiles over great distances. Artillery pieces are crew serviced weapons that provide direct or indirect trajectories for the shell.

Melee weapons include swords, clubs, spears, axes, or fists: almost any tool with which one can hit, hack or stab someone else. The term "melee" generally means hand-to-hand combat or mano-a-mano.

Military railways



Armour, is protective clothing intended to defend its wearer from intentional or unintentional harm in combat and military engagements, typically associated with soldiers.


Munition is often defined as a synonym for ammunition. A slightly broader definition would include bombs, missiles, warheads, and mines.

Military ground vehicles

Military vehicles are land combat or transportation vehicles, excluding rail-based, which are designed for or in significant use by military forces.

Military aviation and aircraft

Military aviation includes any use of aircraft by a country's military, including such areas as transport, training, disaster relief, border patrol, search and rescue, surveillance, surveying, peacekeeping, and (very rarely) aerial warfare.

Naval warfare

Naval warfare is combat in and on seas and oceans.

Military robots

Military robots are autonomous or remote-controlled devices designed for military applications.

Military tactics, Military strategy and Military doctrine

Military tactics is the collective name for methods of engaging and defeating an enemy in battle. Military strategy is a collective name for planning the conduct of warfare. Military doctrine is a level of military planning between national strategy and unit-level tactics, techniques, and procedures.

Military unit

A military unit is an organization within an armed force. It may consist of any number of soldiers, ships, vehicles, or aircraft. Armies, navies, and air forces, are organised hierarchically into groups of various sizes for functional, tactical and administrative purposes.

Military communications

Military communications is defined as the transmission medium that links military components on the battlefield.


Fortifications are military constructions and buildings designed for defence in warfare.
