To all those lovers of heavy armament (from RPGs to ICBMs) this site (http://www.fas.org) is a must-visit place. The FAS is an organization of scientists who worked in several defense projects starting with the Manhattan Project (does it sound to you Hiroshima and Nagasaki?) and who still make reports to USA's government about their arsenal. Also they make reports about other nations capabilities, divided in "allied countries" and "opposing forces". That division is still based in the Cold War (actually you'll notice many Cold War reminiscences).
Perhaps the most interesting part is the Military Analysis Network (http://www.fas.org/man/index.html), where they present complete technical data of several war machines and devices. It includes also general basic explanations of military issues very well explained even to people who don't know much about the subject.
