Here is small list of references that one should use when ever applicable for realistic information for research to make useful well-thought out suggestions for the America's Army Dev's from realistic real life information.

Note: For the most part, you can find nearly anything for AA on the globelsecurity, and FAS websites so look around.

Feel free to post more resource links and i will add them to the list.

Ballistics section should take the ammunition of the world, and add it with:

I'm not sure whether that is considered credible, but they're using real bullets on real objects.

Can you please make sure that the links for the Army Field Manuals don't require an AKO (Army Knowledge Online). Not all of us are in the US Army.

Understanding that AA is a marketing tool for recruiting, I have a suggestion to the game. I have never seen a game that offered a dynamic report editor where users and or organized clans have the ability to customize reports for there own needs. In my company, I am requested to design queries and reports to analyze data outside of the normal ad hoc / default reports. This idea could spark intelligence superiority where clans /users have the ability to gathering Intel that can be used prior to scrimmaging, tournaments, training, or recruiting according to their specific needs. Now AA would not only be about the video game action but pre game strategy planning.
For example, if I was the first to analyze data and find out that on a particular map there was less of a percent chance of success attacking to the west, I could either advise training to focus on this weakness or advise to avoid this area in live games.
Clans could incorporate think tanks and now not only does skill in the games contribute to a win but the ?Intel? as well.
