Aircraft and missiles are to be listed in the Static Aircraft Displays category. However, the missile launcher attached to the missile can be listed here.
As of May 2008 this category is no longer accepting artillery, Howitzers, and cannon waymarks. However, it will accept artillery and Howitzers that are manufactured in the form of a self propelled vehicle that looks similar to a tank or truck.
Artillery, Howitzers, and cannons are to be listed in the Static Artillery Displays category.
The title of the equipment you mark must include the name of the equipment, model of equipment if known, and location such as city and state/province.
Please include any information pertaining to the equipment such as:
3. Country of origin
5. Years of operation
6. Units assigned
7. Campaigns participated
8. Any significant achievements
9. And any additional info you can provide
If you find non-waymarked equipment that you do not have any information about, we still would like for it to be marked. Please conduct some research and post it in your description. If for some reason you cannot find any information about it, go ahead and still submit it with the info you have and request in the description for other group members to help provide any info. We will then consider it for approval. You may be required to add details about it later as you receive information from other visiting waymarkers.
Do not mark equipment in restricted areas and/or areas that will cause security concerns. Current service members, dependents, and retirees can mark equipment on military installations in unrestricted areas, but please be aware that many civilians will not be allowed to visit these areas. In your descriptions, include if the item can or not be accessed by the general public.
The intention of this category is to gather locations and a history for each individual piece of military equipment on static display. There are some people who have a history with some of this equipment and can give more information about them when they log a visit. So if you encounter a military display which is showing multiple pieces of military equipment in one small area, then it is preferred each piece of equipment is marked individually. If you feel the display grouping should not be marked individually, please send us a note explaining the reasons why so we can better understand the circumstances.
