The army weapons worth extremely high value so they usually are transported by air in order to ensure safety and avoid damage. The typical situation is American army, their weapons usually shipped by plane. And, of course, the solders also are trained many times before they can drive the plan shipping the weapons.
The units of the US Army Air Force participated in the transport of weapons training by transport aircraft. They use the cable transport in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, United States.
Although the government cut down the budget for training, the US military units still hold military exercises all of which are large-scale and very professional. From May 19- 21/3, the Battalion units of No.2, the field artillery regiment 8, the Great Team B, and the Battalion 52nd Aviation Regiment of No.1 and the US military was involved in military exercises in Fort Wainwright , Alaska. These practices are very large with the amount of participants is really huge.
The purpose of the military exercise is to train the military force the skills of transportation of weapons as well as military vehicles by using heavy transport aircraft with support from cables. This shipping method is commonly used by the US military especially when shipping the weapons to the pot of United States military force in Afghanistan and Alaska.
This is about military weapons, what about other types of weapons such as hunting weapons? This article will show you how the hunting weapons are transported all over the world.
1. By road
The hunting weapon may be shipped by road if the shipping distance is not too far. This is usually used when transporting hunting weapons domestically. When shipping oversea, there are a lot of transport methods for shipping hunting weapon for the purpose of sale or giving as gift or even exhibition.
2. By sea
This is the cheapest transport method to ship goods including hunting weapon. But this method is the slowest, that means it takes fairly long period of time for transport only. And the quality transport is not high, because many risks exist when the vessel travels on the sea. However, many kind of hunting weapons are shipped by sea. For example the Nikon p 223 3×32 and the Nikon prostaff 3-9×40 and other kinds of hunting weapons such as bowl, rifle, short guns, long guns, component parts of rifle, component parts of bowl…are usually exported to other countries by sea.
3. By air
As I have said, the military weapons all are expensive and dangerous for human so they are transported by air. Contrast to the military weapons, the hunting weapons are less harmful and less dangerous, of course, have less value so they are rarely shipped by air because the air freight is very high. However, when the export contract requires express transport, the air transport method may be used to ship the hunting weapon. This method is used both in domestic and in foreign trade.
4. By rail
The cost of rail transport is fairly low but is higher than sea transport, of course. However, the shipping time of this method is faster than sea shipping. Likely to air transport method, this method can be used for shipping the goods not only in domestic but also in the world for international trade purpose. The rail transport procedure is not simple as sea transport but is much easier to do than shipping goods by air transport because the amount of shipping documents required are less than the air shipping documents (which asks for 12 documents in total).
