    Who said women can’t be interested in cutting-edge technologies and innovative arms and equipment? An inner warrior wakes up in their souls when they hold a killer machine gun or try on a military pilot’s helmet! Take a look at these “Amazonians” posing with firearms around the world in Sputnik’s photo gallery.

    Some women are as passionate about different types of weapons as men. Thousands of ladies visit various defense expositions and showcases by manufacturers around the world. BIDEC 2017 (Bahrain International Defense Exhibition and Conference), which is currently held in Bahrain, is no exception.
