    Congrats to Technofox, who probably cheated:p, for winning the last round of trivia!

    So here's round two - but first some rules.

    One person will ask a question, the rest of the forum will try to answer it. Hints can be provided at the whim of the question asker. Who ever gets the question right (or most right in some cases) earns the right to ask the next question and so on.

    Try not to reverse-search photos for answers|Rage|.

    ...

    Question: These are navy diving unit insignia, to which country and unit does each belong (not all are modern)?

    Wow! I want to say you cheated, but I'm not even sure how you could:/--0.

    I'll be honest, I didn't get all of them:(. But you didn't just take a stab at this, you didn't miss a single answer. Units and countries... all right!!!

    I got SEAL right, but though the Iranian SBS was the UK's:D. Z-force? 4rr? 82nd Marine? Didn't even know they existed.

    Dang girl! 100%:0--0:

    I was going towards some kind of tank destroyer, and seeing there are M113s in the photo too I started looking for nations that operate both. Turns out it's a light tank:eek:.

    You win that round.

    ...

    @Pathfinder @AMDR @Atilla anyone have a trivia question they'd like to try on the forum?
