The military topic of 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Map_Features#Military is 
completely uncommented, and I have a hard time to understand the tags.

What comes to my mind:

airfield: could this be a complete airport, or is this only smaller 
(often only a grass) place where planes start and land?

bunker: buildings, often build from concrete, to stand even heavier fire 
(what about abandoned bunkers, e.g. here in germany there are a lot of 
WW II bunkers now with a completely different purpose - maybe we need 
historic=bunker in addition?)

barracks: fenced areas where soldiers live, sleep, maintain weapons, ... 
(or are only the buildings meant?)

danger_area: ?!?

range: ?!? (is this where soldiers have practice with their weapons?)

Any clarification would by greatly appreciated ;-)

I would add some clarification to that page if'd only had a clue ;-)))

Regards, ULFL
