Check out all these badass dudes carrying blue flags. They are the new U.S. 780th Military Intelligence Brigade. The US Army says it's the first cyber brigade in its history. They don't look like your usual hackers.

Apparently, these guys will be able to fight the enemy on the internet and also kick the crap out of most people in real life. The new brigade will "conduct signals intelligence, computer network operations, and when directed, offensive operations in support of DOD, Army and interagency operations worldwide, while denying the same to its adversaries." Its 781st battalion will be located at Fort Meade, Maryland, while the 782nd will be at Fort Gordon, Georgia. [US Army]
