Making the Federal Government More Efficient, Effective, and Accountable to the American People

> On March 13th, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order that will make the Federal government more efficient, effective, and accountable to you, the American people. This Executive Order directs the Director of the Office of Management and Budget to present the President with a plan that recommends ways to reorganize the executive branch and eliminate unnecessary agencies.

>President Trump wants to hear your ideas and suggestions on how the government can be better organized to work for the American people.

>Share your ideas below by June 12th!

Recommend departments to reform as well as departments to eliminate completely.


We could get the ATF to allow for fully auto funs, and maybe have our way with the 1968/1986 gun laws!

OK /k/. Went to my congressman's town hall to ask about his progress on National Firearms Act repeal>>475198 (new topic because the topic change is pretty major and this really deserves an OP)Did not get to ask my question, the Future Fascists were out in full force and slowed everything down and stopped him from getting though enough questions. Was a fun bit though where one of them accused him of sending soldiers to die in Iraq for oil and using the front row of veterans as "props". 1 minute on Wikipedia will tell you the Congressman wasn't elected till 2013 and is an Iraq war veteran himself. He went ballistic. There was a camera on tripod recording the Congressman and plenty of individual recorders, so I expect video of it soon. I did get to talk with his District Director again afterwards though. He said he was still working with the legislative team on my request (expected), but he also said something I didn't expect: He was trying to find some time to schedule me to talk one on one with the congressman in mid-April.This is still tentative, but it's clear I should do research for more supporting arguments. Planning to call Gun Owners of America (I'm a member) on Monday to see if they have any resources or recommendations. (I'll attach the notes I already sent in another post)Anyone have a list of FFLs and manufacturers in Florida? Been looking to find something like that. "Jobs" is the best word to use when dealing with politicians.

>Recoil is a lie

>what is conservation of momentum

p = 0 = m1v1 + m2v2 -> m1v1 = -m2v2

for the sake of simplicity, and because i've been drinking and i'm lazy I'll assume that we're using magic gunpowder and brass that are weightless. Let's compare the USP and Glock 17 in 9mm.

Unloaded, the Glock weighs 710g and the USP 748g. A single 9mm bullet weighs 7.45g. So the guns with only a bullet in the chamber will weigh 717.45g and 755.45g. Let's keep it on the low end and assume a muzzle velocity of 985ft/s or 300.228m/s.

Back to conservation of momentum, m1v1 = -m2v2.

For the Glock:

7.45g*300.228m/s = -710g*v2

v2 = -(7.45g*300.228m/s)/710g = -3.15m/s

For the USP:

7.45g*300.228m/s = -748g*v2

v2= -(7.45g*300.228m/s)/748g = -2.99m/s

Now we can solve for the kinetic energy present in both guns:


Glock: .5*.710kg*(3.15m/s)^2 = 3.522 joules

USP: .5*.748kg*(2.99m/s)^2 = 3.343 joules

Since 1 joule = 1 newton meter

The Glock will travel back into the shooter's hand with 3.522Nm or 2.597 ftlbs of force and the USP 3.343Nm or 2.465 ftlbs of force.

Wire guided vs laser guided. Both gave to be pointed at targets until impact, with Kornet being harder to jam and hellfire being faster (less time between volleys).

Warheads are multifunction on both, with frag sleeve HEAT and using unused rocket fuel as a booster. HEAT penetration is similar.

Kornet has 20% more range and is $15k cheaper, but that price includes launch system, training aids and maintenance.

I guess my question is:

Why isn't Kornet used more by helicopters, drones, insurgents, ANA Cessnas and so on?

It seems fairly comparable to hellfire and one doesnt have to jump through Hillarys State Department hoops.

'Cause I don't know how they're split in the greek army but I know that AA fireteams with Mistral in France are a fucking rare sight, it's not even regiment level…

Having something "good enough to do the job" is exactly what the infantry needs, because the lower echelons almost never have what they need to deal with the threat unless everything goes according to plan…

The Javelin's CLU is not dead weight, the gunner chooses the attack profile and brackets the target which is transmitted to the missile's seeker so it knows which blob in the video frame to home in on. I mean yes, you could make a wood-launched Javelin but it would just indiscriminately attack the closest hot object in front of it.

Kornets (or any other kind of SACLOS missile) are not jam-proof. It only becomes a question of jamming the launch platform's optics which the missile relies on completely, regardless of whether it's wire guided or beam riding. This is the basis for the T-90's Shtora system and it achieves a high rate of success if Russian sources are to be believed.

90ff03 No.501312


> This is the basis for the T-90's Shtora system and it achieves a high rate of success if Russian sources are to be believed.

No it's not.

The reason why Russian soft kill works well against SACLOS is simple, they multiply IR source at the right frequencies to mimick the IR flare at the back of most missiles used as reference for tracking, making the aiming post losing the tracking and fucking up it's aim. And the intensity of the IR pulses is high enough to fry/blind self guiding sensors on fire & forget missile when they're close enough which add a level of protection (it's dubious whether or not it really works on Hellfire or Javelin because those would already be flying towards the tank and be fairly close… but then again you don't need to miss by much to miss the tank entirely).

Modern Russian SACLOS missiles work differently as it's the missile tracking the post for spatial reference while the post only direct guidance telling him where to go (instead of telling where he is and where to go).

It's pretty jam proof (the post is too far to be jammed and the missile doesn't "look" at the tank) and not really hard to make, and the reason why the Russians are making so much R&D into hard-kill, because they know that sooner or later others are gonna figure it out…

So a fun little fantasy I like to think of is, what if the Gate from GATE opened up in the United States?

Specifically in a city like New York but it can be anywhere that you are familiar with. In the initial opening, thousands of roman era tier soldiers and fantasy races pour through it and ransack the city. In the ensuing chaos, thousands of people are drug through the gate to god knows where.

You have been appointed as the commander of a division sized element of personnel of your choice for the retaliation, and rescue of these citizens. You are authorized the utilization of all non-nuclear ordinance and equipment.

So /k/, how do you respond? What is your load out?

Unit would be high mobility with an emphasis on long range engagement, sensors and reconnaissance. Build around a high mobility decently armored platform like the T-15 or Patria AMV and equip them with autocannon, ATGM, and the best sensor suite available. Equip troops with fairly standard weaponry; make long range engagement a priority, but make accomadations for more close encounters. So M16A4 with optic for most soldiers, decent number of DMR and sniper rifles, maybe in a 6.5 or .338 caliber. Light machine guns on the squad level, something like the Minimi, a dedicated MG squad for each platoon equipped with either a PKM, a FN MAG, or a MG 3. SMGs available for units on as-needed basis; probably MPX in .357 sig with a handgun to match. Carl Gustaf recoilless guns, RPO Shmel thermobaric launchers, and Bur launchers issued as needed for area devastation or hardened targets.

Tank assets would be of limited value, but artillery would be highly valuable. Msta self propelled howitzers, Tochka tactical missiles, and a good variety of heavy mortars.

Take apart some helicopters and wheel them inside the portal then reassemble them.

Spearhead a first attack with armor and heavily equipped infantry to establish a bridgehead on the other side. Shoot anything that moves and completely incinerate five or more square miles around the area. Use this as a base from which to direct aerial resupplies.

Use aerial recon assets to determine the location of the personnel and set out in that direction, annihilating anything alive in the path, preferably from afar by means of artillery. Sorcerers can't use magical cheats if they can't fucking see you. Escort helicopters may be necessary to keep the ammo flowing if angry magic things start attacking the airborne choppers along the resupply route. Take no prisoners and help the supply unit along by pillaging for sustenance.

Once the location of the hostages is reached, assuming it is a large settlement or fortress, lay siege to it and begin bombardment of anything that has arrows coming from it. Attempt to force a surrender, threatening the same annihilation of those that came before. Otherwise, breach the walls whenever the enemy seems sufficiently worn down and move in with explosives and flame weapons. A strong caution shouPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's a legitimate concern, especially if he's been out of the game for a few years. Unless you constantly participate, it's hard to keep tabs on the hunting meta. Personally, I think it would be viable because the anti-crossbow defenses that deer used to use have fallen out of favor in order to pursue a more gun-oriented strategy.

Guns are obviously the more popular hunting option, so I think any deer that squares up with you will be expecting something you don't have. All you have to do is exploit their expectations to get a kill.

Keep in mind, though, anti-gun strats aren't actually all that different from anti-crossbow ones. This is only going to work because of how heavily optimized their anti-gun tactics are. If the deer in your area get wind of your plans, it doesn't take much investment to tailor their defenses to accommodate crossbows, so don't get too attached to one hunting area.

He's a fairly knowledgeable fellow, at least when it comes to a few topics, mainly stuff he has direct experience with. Just remember he's a literal LARPer with a history degree and field experience as an archeologist, who named his channel after a degenerate depression era dance craze, has probably never been in much of a fight that didn't involve an initiative roll in his life, and knows less about firearms than you do, even if you started lurking here 5 minutes ago; keeping all of that in mind, feel free to enjoy a 20 minute expose on cloaks in the fantasy genre from a man who has sown a wool blanket into hobo disguise, which goes brilliantly with the crackhead-haircut he's rocking, as he spews out an unhinged diatribe about the combat viability of his blanket.

They really believe it you know. They can't imagine a reason why anyone would sincerely disagree with them. It would be so simple; just get rid of the guns and everyone would be safe. All that stands in the way are a handful of villains. Corrupt gun companies who literally profit from the murder of children. Warped idealogues who fantasize about the violent overthrow of the government so they can establish their dream of an apartheid America. Psychologically disturbed individuals animated by paranoiac fantasies or sexual inadequacies.

In a way I envy them. They are never dissuaded by the black pill. Their conviction is total. They really have found a way to turn ignorance into a kind of strength. I know too many people like this.

Even if you wanted a pre-built AR, you really should just buy an upper, a lower parts kit (possibly a bundle of those 2) and any aluminum lower from a local gun shop. Assembling a lower is piss easy.

As for buying a lower, just call your local gun stores and ask their lowest aluminum lower price. Most of the time it will be less expensive than ordering online because you'd be spending 30 bucks on transfer fee and more on shipping.

The only real variations in lower are material (always get aluminum), and presence/absense of intergrated trigger guard (No experience with this). Previously you might have seen some lowers without trigger guards (this was extremely early and will only be for replicas of early ARs) and high shelf (I don't think these were ever sold on their own, but avoid them). Some rare ones will have fancy crap on the front of the mag well, but these will be more expensive and less compatible. Quality for aluminum lowers (at least in US) is consistent enough.

e532f3 No.501302


Everything I've heard says that the build quality is garbage and the action is far from smooth. I love the concept of it, but it looks like a miss in execution. As it stands, there could be a reasonable market for "high capacity" detachable mag bolt guns, but the options are very limited. Granted this is all hearsay, but you should probably handle it for yourself.

IIRC from the 2002 edition of Janes Artillery (which my old library had a copy of), that was a planned range for the projectile that lost the rocket assist and became Excalibur.

Does it say anything concrete, or it was just one of those vague "give us 200 billion dollars every year, and we will surely deliver" kind of deals?

we have drones and air superiority, plus rail guns on newer naval ships. if we want to go easy on our enemies we can call the british to use their artillery, which is capable of firing while moving I think, and it is known to fire several shots in an arc so they all hit at once

I seem to recall it was going to use scramjet propulsion, but as I said, they dropped that and kept the GPS guidance part, which became the M982 Excalibur round.

Anything more, you'll have to find the edition of Jane's which had the XM2001 Crusader, I no longer have access to that library because I've moved.

Only because you limit yourselves to fighting third-world shitholes.

What are the top things preventing caseless guns/ammo to be a thing, technology/material wise, leaving politics and economics aside.

I know of the heat problem but not much else.

I know guys in the STAT (army R&D) are working on making neckless 6,5mm (can't remember if it's Lapua or Norma. Probably Lapua).

Which would instantly rape any existing round.

As light as 5.56, as powerful as 7.62.

Now of course it has no snowball chance in hell to be adopted or even leave prototyping but hey.

What about multiple non rotating barrels?

6c593a No.501278


Heat is far and away the largest issue, even if you could solve that with advanced materials you could just have a similar gun using normal ammo that could fire for longer without melting.

>There already are machines to industrially produce bread, and similar mechanisms could be used in the gun

>Bombing the last bakery in a city is now a valid military tactic


Weight + a small increase in complexity. Also, perhaps moreso at rifle scale, wouldn't that cause issues with accurate fire at longer ranges (obviously an issue for fixed barrels more than rotary ones but rotating ones again need more weight and complexity).

269d0b No.501297


Propellant is brittle and fragments flying around in the action jam the gun, which is then extremely difficult to take apart to clean. With no eject case acting as a heat sink, it heats up faster. Up the ass expensive even under best conditions.

As far as caseless goes, you'll have better luck with bullets and propellant being separate, bullet being forced into the barrel mechanically and then propellant weighted and aligned with the barrel to form a chamber, electrically ignited. You'll probably have to use longer thinner bullets so they can be fed from a magazine reliably. The propellant would be normal gunpowder. Igniter would be powered from a battery, one AAA in the bottom of the magazine should be plenty.

Previous related thread seems to be completely gone, and it's a pity. The gist of what we learned is that fire control became a wee bit better since ww2, and a modern battleship could have enough AA firepower to destroy all the planes and ordnance a supercarrier. And big guns could fire guided scramjet projectiles at targets hundreds of naval miles away, and still hit. And material science and propulsion technology also got better, not to mention automation.

So, how about a nuclear powered battleship with combustible light gas guns? They use hydrogen instead of solid propellants, and apparently can launch projectiles at hypervelocity. The ship could get the hydrogen for the guns from sea water and store it in liquid form deep inside the hull, as it's nuclear powered. Then the projectiles would be various guided shells and missiles launched from the CLGGs. I think the main cannons could be 12 inch smoothbore guns with uncharacteristically long barrels, as we only intend to use guided projectiles. Get 4 triple turrets, and for the secondary battery just use a ridiculous amount (10-30) of triple turrets with dual-purpose 155mm CLG cannons, also long barrelled. Remember, we want to use guided scramjets, and designing a version of them that can hit aerial targets shouldn't be a problem.

Whoops, I meant to add that part where it's built from the ground up, rewrites & shit.

Like they restart building the USS Illinois & Kentucky along the modern lines.

There was a proposal for the New Jersey to have her third turret removed and replaced with a VLS but it was too expensive and would put too much weight forward, (way more drastic than >>501198 ) which is why I suggested the 2nd turret be removed and replaced instead to deal with weight balance.

Don't forget how metallurgy,and battle damage control has went light years ahead of what they had in the 40s.

Modern day warship interior has been designed in a honeycomb fashion.

1940s ship designs would get raped by missiles.

They have spall liners. The only ship class around today to be armored in the usual sense of having steel plate is the Kirov class, with a three inch belt protecting the engine. Otherwise a ship's armor is compartmentalization, maneuvering, and countermeasures.

Some AShM, the P-15 for example, have shaped charged warheads as it is, intended to blow through as many compartments of a ship as possible. Add enough armor to stop one and you are so slow they'll just hit you three or four time until something gives.

adding enough armor to protect against more than fragmentation is not worth the reduction in speed.

As long as cheap diesel subs are around huge surface combatants are only going to get more vulnerable unless we see a massive ASW advance.

Ah, the perfect thread!

I'm 17, and was hoping to join the Navy. I never cared enough to get anything more than a C in HS, and I'm not good enough at wrestling to get a scholarship. What would be the best position to learn a useful trade(what trade is best these days?). Also, if a trade isn't for me, would my service qualify me for some educational aid after my contract is up?

I was also considering Army, how easy would it be to "redistribute" some Army material into my own possession?

Helicopter Repair is always good, as well as intelligence specialist.

Just know that after 4 years, if you dont plan on going to college then you should just re-enlist. Otherwise you will fall into a cycle of meritocracy.
