New World Order Glock 17

Desert Storm Glock

This was a 1991 series of 1000 Glock 17s which had special engraving on it. A list of names of all the coalition countries is engraved down the top of the slide; "Operation Desert Storm/January 16-February 27, 1991" is engraved on the right side. On the left side is "New World Order/Commemorative".

The first 15 Desert Storm Glocks were special presentation models and had the special "bright black" finish. The special engraving on these was also slightly altered from the standard. These pistols were supposed to go to:

UD000US: George Bush, Commander-in-Chief
UD001US: Gen. H. Norman Schwartzkopf III (Commander-in-Chief, CentCom)
UD002US: James Baker III (Secy of State)
UD003US: Gen. Colin Powell (Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff)
UD004US: Dick Cheney (Secy of Defense)
UD005US: Brent Scowcroft (National Security Advisor)
UD006US: Lt. Gen. Thomas Kelly
UD007US: Lt. Gen. Chuck Horner (Commander, Air Forces, CentCom)
UD008US: Maj. Gen. Robert B Johnston (Chief-of-Staff, CentCom)
UD009US: Lt. Gen. Calvin Waller (Dpty Commander-in-Chief, CentCom)
UD010US: Lt. Gen. Walter Boomer (Commander, I MEF)
UD011US: Vice Adm. Stanley Arthur (Commander, Naval Forces, CentCom)
UD012US: Maj. Gen. William "Gus" Pagonis (Chief of Logistics, CentCom)
UD013US: Brig. Gen. Richard Neal (Operations Ofcr., CentCom)

Part of the special engraving was these men's names and ranks engraved on the slide. In addition all of these special presentations along with the next 35 Desert Storm Glocks came with the Wooden Display case made specially for the Desert Storm Glocks. The remaining 950 Desert Storm Commemoratives came in the standard Glock Box, but with desert camoflage labels. [MakeMineA10mm]

This is the lid of the box that the Desert Storm Commemorative comes in. In addition to the camoflage label on the top lid, there are special indications on the standard box labels on the ends which indicate it to be a Desert Storm Commemorative. [MakeMineA10mm]

These are pictures of the left and right sides of the slide. There are special markings on both sides, however they are restricted to the muzzle-end of the slide ahead of the ejection port area. Compare this to the full-length engraving down the top of the slide in a picture below. Also note that the normal markings for caliber and model are still there. [MakeMineA10mm]

The absolutely most interesting feature of the Desert Storm Glock is the top of the slide, shown here. The entire length of the slide has the names of all the countries in the Desert Storm coalition engraved in it, both above AND below the ejection port. The Desert Storm Commemorative is the only Glock that has special markings/engraving on the top of the slide right from the factory. [MakeMineA10mm]

All eyes head towards Baghdad
By Helen Studd

Soldiers from one of Britain’s most illustrious regiments added a splash of colour to their uniforms by adopting Snake-eye goggles as they started war training yesterday.

Members of the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment, including 19-year-old tank driver Carl Thomas, above, were allowed to wear their own hologram protective eyewear during exercises in Bergen-Hohne in Germany. The £40 reflective 3D goggles, which are designed for motorcyclists, have become a fashionable accessory, but they will not be seen on the battlefield.

A Defence Ministry spokesman said: “Beer is cheap in Germany and our soldiers have a lot of their budget left to spend on other things. Although in a real battle they would probably attract the enemy so could not be worn, there is no reason why they should not enjoy them in training.”
Volgens dit artikel zijn ze dus niet tijdens de strijd gebruikt. Ik las eerder van wel.
