Iranian elite Revolutionary Guards stands guard at the site of Iran's nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, 300 kms 186 (miles) south of capital Tehran, Iran, Monday April, 9, 2007. Iran announced Monday that it has begun enriching uranium with 3,000 centrifuges, a dramatic expansion of a nuclear program that has drawn U.N. sanctions and condemnation from the West. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday at a ceremony at the enrichment facility at Natanz that Iran was now capable of enriching nuclear fuel "on an industrial scale." Asked if Iran has begun injecting uranium gas into 3,000 centrifuges for enrichment, top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani replied, "Yes." He did not elaborate, but it was the first confirmation that Iran had installed the larger set of centrifuges after months of saying it intends to do so.

Do those include Plutonium producing nuclear installations managed by Islamic extremists?

I think not.


The Russian interests I'm talking about are the continued sales to Iran of Russian Atomic components and knowhow, along with sales of Russian weaponry do defend Iran's more than probable nuclear proliferation.

Hi, they are using FX marking cartridges - a line of training ammunition that can be fired through standard ... lethal round designed to be used in indoor training ranges. Not airsoft. Face Mask is to protect their eyes. You cannot buy this from any airsoft stores as they are restricted items. Mostly used by law enforement and military for training purpose.

Another cheaper option is to use paint-ball. But for realistic and properly operation of their own weapons, FX Force-on-Force sysetm is the best.

I've seen two types of simuntions, 9mm and .223. 9mm is more prevelent and therefore more popular. Those in the pictures are 9mm.
