First launched in 2007, with a modest print run of just 500 calendars, 2012 is the biggest print run to date with 50,000 calendars produced worldwide.

As always, 50% of the proceeds generated from Hotshots 2012 will be donated to the Help for Heroes charity.

The twelve sizzling photographs feature the very latest military kit distributed by Edgar Brothers, as well as some of the hottest glamour models in the UK today.

The brainchild of UK-based Edgar Brothers’ Police & Military Division, the Hotshots calendar was shot on location at SureFire’s headquarters in glamourous Los Angeles.

Edgar Brothers’ managing director, Derek Edgar, said: “Every year we strive to improve on the previous year’s calendar and 2012 is no exception. This year’s inspiration was taken from the worlds favourite online gaming scenarios and the models couldn’t wait to be drafted in for this year’s call of duty.”
