iPhones have come a long way over the years. They are more than just a smartphone for everyday use. In fact, soldiers in Afghanistan are now using the Tactical NAV app on their iPhone to capture enemy forces.
I’m currently deployed to Afghanistan, and we took heavy enemy rocket and mortar fire in the middle of the night. We had to respond using a quick reaction force (QRF) to kill or capture the insurgents firing at the base. We didn’t have any checkpoints, only a rough sketch of the route, and the grids where we were taking fire from,
said a U.S. Soldier, whose name is withheld for security reasons. Thanks to Tactical NAV, they were able to get to the building insurgents were located. This military grade navigation app has offline mapping capabilities, waypoint plotting, and compass fastlock function. It has a night mode for low-light conditions. You can get it for $8.99 at this time.[where to get it]
