    This is not completely correct: knives is still used in hand-to-hand fights. I watched a picture of on guy I know that work as Nato soldier, where he has a Rambo-like knife.

    I know. But melee weapons of any kind are far less used in contemporary warfare.

    Knives aren't melee weapons?

    First of all, it's 'knives', second, knives are pretty much the only melée weapons used nowadays.

    Sorry but I have the brain in overheat, due to study, so some error of translation can happen. I provide to correct it.

    Some state still uses blades, and circa every state uses some kind of bayonets attachable to the fusil.

    Knives which can be used as bayonets, but probably no bayonets per se. Anyway, also saw it in a WWI movie some weeks ago that the soldiers were told to use the spade as a much more useful weapon. After all there are only limited options when it comes to melee fighting.

    I just realised I forgot to add these last photos of mine a few months ago (when I was posting quite a lot of Thief-related photos) :





    The secret entrance to the Lost City... Don't forget your breath potion and Keeper key !

    (Real world : a former bridge from the 18. century in the old town section of Košice - rediscovered and "put on display" during the big restoration works of the city's historical core in the 1990s. The flowing water is added for dramatic effect... )








    Surface entrances to The City sewers and catacombes

    (RW : several open-air parts of the Archeological Complex of the Lower Gate (an exposition of preserved subterranean parts of Košice's former medieval fortifications and sewers)

    I don't know, but it seems the right middle way between Viktoria and a treebeast in standing position.

    Yeah. It looks like he's gonna have a collection of eyeball accessories. I wonder if he'll try wide-angle lenses and telephoto (blinking would be hard, though), once he gets the image clear enough. I haven't come across anything about battery life, either.
