If you are interested in current military developments and conflicts, as well as weapon procurement, you should definitely check out Overt Defense – shortened to OVD.
Set up a couple of years ago, OVD is a sister website to the well-know The Firearm Blog. But whereas that site focuses on firearms, OVD is intended to cover the much wider defence and military realms.
The website generally posts three times a day, five days a week, with most articles normally between 300 and 400 words so as to give concise information on the subject to the reader.
However, OVD does also run occasional editorials that are quite a bit longer and give a lot more detail on a specialist military or defence topic.
The writers are generally defence journalists and writers who also work for other, better known publications, so the standards are high and the content – because it covers such a vast area – varied and generally very interesting.
So if you have an interest in defence or current military affairs, have a look at OVD. It’s one of those websites that’s worth at least a quick scan once a day just to see what’s in the headlines.
