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.
Mêlée generally means hand-to-hand combat or mano-a-mano. Weapons commonly used in mêlée include swords, clubs, spears, axes, or fists: almost any tool with which one can hit someone else.
Armour, is protective clothing intended to defend its wearer from intentional harm in combat and military engagements, typically associated with soldiers.
A firearm is a kinetic energy weapon that fires either a single or multiple projectiles propelled at high velocity by the gases produced by action of the rapid confined burning of a propellant.
Artillery are usually large caliber weapons firing projectiles one at a time. Artillery pieces are crew serviced weapons that provide direct or indirect trajectories for the shell.
Military vehicles are land combat or transportation vehicles, excluding rail-based, which are designed for or in significant use by military forces.
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 is combat in and on seas and oceans.
Military robots are autonomous or remote-controlled devices designed for military applications.
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.
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 is defined as the transmission medium that links military components on the battlefield.
Fortifications are military constructions and buildings designed for defence in warfare.
