What the heck is a military tool? Well, just like any pursuit, the military employs specific tools of the trade to get certain jobs done. If you think you know the military well enough to name each of these tools, take this quiz.

But first, let's talk about the kinds of tools the military uses. We can all agree that one of the most fundamental military tools is the firearm.

With literally hundreds of guns to choose from, we could have made this quiz all about military firearms, but we wanted to mix it up with other military tools.

We think we can all agree that the military has a host of tools to do the job.
