The Absolute State of the British Army

British Tank Force Falls to the Lowest Level Since WW1

Defence chiefs have expressed anger that Britain is to mothball a third of its tanks, leaving it with fewer than Serbia, Cambodia or Burma.

The military is planning to revamp only 148 of its 227 Challenger 2 tanks because of cost constraints, The Times has learnt. That would send the armed forces down to 56th in the global league table of number of tanks available.

The remainder of the Challenger 2s, which entered service between 1998 and 2002, are expected to be used for parts. It is possible that some could be patched up for deployment in an emergency.

Whats the best bolt action rifle?

I see a lot talk about bolt actions as one of the perfect guns, and with reason too

Nugget, SMLE, Kar98, Remington, ArcticWarfare, CheyTac, etc

In you opinion, whats the best?

Also

If you could make the perfect bolt action, what would it be?

Would it have a fixed mag? If it had a mag, would it be a rock in, or a straight? Would it have a stripperclip guide, or would it not even need one? Would you have rails for optics & mall-ninja shit? Would it have a bayonet or would it have bayonet? You have no choice in having a bayonet or not

My opinion?

I don't really have one

I do really like bolt actions for how simple they are, so I don't like how most can't be taken down & totally stripped easily, no tools is the best in guns

I like the SMLE, I wish the stocks were longer though, fucking stubby brit arms, I know chickenwings were popular, but god damn, gimme an inch

Here is the deal. I am getting pic related to use as armor against attacking animals. I know it is not leather or chain mail, but every little bit off extra fabric is useful and being that it should be loose fitting, the robe has potential to bunch up while being attacked. Also better for an animal to attack a dangling piece of cloth than going straight for my legs.

My question is what would be the optimal way to cut the bottom of the robe to give my legs mobility, but without sacrificing coverage of my legs? While Geralt's robe has a lot of mobility, a lot of his legs are exposed from the front. So I don't know. The drawing I have put together is what I would ideally like to have, but I don't know.

elcan spectre tri-role 1/3/9 or march 1-10x24?

i've heard that elcans are incredibly durable,

but i've also heard that march optics are pretty durable,

although probably not to the same extent.

it's much easier to get a sight picture when looking through the elcan,

but i've heard that the reticle can get lost at higher magnifications.

the march has variable magnification, and it goes a power higher.

the march seems to have better glass quality, and the elcan weighs almost 2 pounds.

apparently they both have a low field of view at their highest magnifications.

do any of you have experience with these optics?

durability is a dealbreaker for me, i'd rather have something heavy that works than something light that doesn't.

that said, the march might be durable enough, even if it's not AS durable.

having higher magnification, less weight, and variable magnification are also very appealing.

but.. a quick sight picture can make the difference when you need it most.

i'm also curious about what the field of view is like at lower magnifications on these optics.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/armed-civilians-detaining-migrants-border-211510482.html

Armed civilians are detaining migrants at the border. The (((ACLU))) wants them (((investigated)))

>In the middle of the night Tuesday, United Constitutional Patriots, an armed civilian group patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border in the Sunland Park area, detained more than 300 migrants who illegally crossed the border.

>The group, who claim they are at the border to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America,” is patrolling the desert near Sunland Park searching for migrants.

>In a video livestreamed April 16 on Facebook by one of the United Constitutional Patriots' members, the group is seen detaining a group of about 300 migrants, including children. The video starts in the middle of the incident with U.S. Border Patrol vehicle and agents already at the scene.

>In the video, the member repeatedly says, “This is an invasion … and it is never, never ending” referring to the large number of Central American migrants crossing into the U.S. to seek asylum.

>The group claims on its website that it is not violating any state or federal laws.

>The (((American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico))) disagrees with the group calling their actions, “unlawful.”

>In a letter sent to New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, (((ACLU))) officials request they “investigate an armed vigilante group currently engaged in the unlawful detention of hundreds of migrants near New Mexico’s southern border.”

>The letter states, “an armed fascist militia organization describing itself as the United Constitutional Patriots arrested nearly three hundred people seeking safety in the United States, including young children, near Sunland Park, New Mexico. Other videos appear to show arrests in the past few hours. The vigilante members of the organization, including Jim Benvie, who posted videos and photographs of the unlawful arrests to social media, are not police or law enforcement and they have no authority under New Mexico or federal law to detain or arrest migrants in the United States.”

>It continues, “Their actions undermine the legitimate efforts of our state’s law enforcement officials to keep New Mexico families safe and they erode community trust. The Trump administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law. This has no place in our state: we cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum. We urge you to immediately investigate this atrocious and unlawful conduct.”

>ACLU concludes their letter stating, “The Trump administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law. This has no place in our state: we cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum. We urge you to immediately investigate this atrocious and unlawful conduct."

>United Constitutional Patriots leaders could not immediately be reached by phone or through social media for comment Friday. United Constitutional Patriots members have posted dozens of videos of the group patrolling and detaining migrants they find in the desert.

>The videos show men and women wearing camouflage military-like uniforms with assault rifles “scooping the border” looking for migrants. The group records videos on its Facebook page in order to document the situation with migrants at the border and to “show the truth to the American people,” United Constitutional Patriots New Mexico Border Ops spokesman Jim Benvie told the El Paso Times in a past interview.

>“The truth isn’t being told about this crisis," Benvie said. "A lot of people are accusing President (Donald) Trump of manufacturing a crisis and I think the videos we are down here producing, which isn’t left or right, is providing evidence that this is a crisis.”

On McVeigh

Was it truly a real attack and not something that was already set up from the start? Look at how the building was ravaged, all the floors had the same grade of damage. If the IED was laying on the ground, roof floors would have less damage than the bottom, yet here all floors are equally fucked. That could be excused on gas pipes laying in the building, but I still doubt that a truck with a bunch of explosives could do this much havok.

I know that a propane tank would have a blast radius of around 10-20 meters but the damage would just come from the gas combusting and not from the inside force of the explosion. It could make some damage but I doubt it could ravage walls in the same vein this event had.

So was this for realsies or not?

Alternate history meme thread

This a bread to discuss silly alt-history scenarios that would be nigh impossible from a physics standpoint but could still be fun to shitpost about for their sheer absurdity.

Anyhow I've been wondering how WW2 could've turned out if Thule society memesters had used ancient Annunaki magicks to open a 3x3m Stargate between Königsberg and Hsinking by pure luck just prior to the fall of France, allowing for the instantaneous transfer of men and materiel between Japan and Germany over a distance of some seven thousand kilometers.

How deeply would the German and Japanese militaries have cooperated in such an event?

At the minimum I can see the Nips abandon their plans to attack burgers in the Pacific assuming Nippon still gets sanctioned in favor of creating german-trained Tank battalions equipped with license-built Pz. IIIs for the purpose of doing a joint Barbarossa.

Ideally the Luftwaffe and IJN/IJAAS would conduct joint trials and arrange for Japanese aircraft to escort german bombers deep over British territory during the BoB, leading to Nips abandoning their turn fighter autism in favor of cannon-armed high speed energy fighters.

The Kriegsmarine could speed up construction on the Graf Zeppelin and train its crew on Japanese carriers in Asia while the Nips would get german aero engines amid a host of german aircraft designs to directly compare against their own.

Germans could import centimetric Radar from Nips while in turn fixing Japan's crappy AEW doctrine, Nips could sell Type 91 torpedoes to Germans in return for the J1N and Ki-45 getting FuG radar equipment and so on Mussolini would hopefully be too distracted by all the autism to invade Greece.

If word got out to the Allies would they try and stage a joint UK/US/USSR/Free French assault on East Prussia ASAP?

Would Burgers attack Nips preemptively in the Pacific and would Chinese civilians in Nip-conquered areas be less inclined to turn to Mao and other allied scum if the local japanese rape administration were swapped with friendly germans?

How long would german and japanese intelligence even be capable of hiding the Gate from glow in the darks?

Red flag bill up for Senate vote March 26

>While Senate Bill 7 named Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019, it is actually a Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order. Red Flag Gun Confiscation Bills call for 2nd Amendment rights to be stripped from law-abiding Americans without due process based largely on unsubstantiated accusations from disgruntled family members, neighbors, coworkers, and/or current or ex-romantic partners, or roommates.

>Sen. Rubio’s bill goes further by incentivizing states to confiscate firearms through a $100 million 5-year federal grant program. This means that states that pass Red Flag Laws will receive federal funding and states that do not will be punished by not receiving that funding. This is quite literally a pay off by the federal government to push states to create gun confiscation laws.

>ISAAC had a large number of children. Some of them emigrated, and came eventually to the part of the world now inhabited by Saxon.

PROPAGANDA

Prisoner of war states that everyone in his unit, including the Oberleutnant read American leaflets. Most men believed them believed them because men returning from furlough substantiated the truth of some of the items contained therein. Moreover, they were the only source of news they had. They swapped them with each other and the Oberleutnant was angry if he missed one. Prisoner of war states that one of the best things about the leaflets is the regularity with which they arrive.

It is particularly interesting the affect that allied bombing had on morale and the range of attitudes that the soldiers prescribed to.

Cartel raiding a rival mechanic shop

So, they certainly won the engagement by all means, but what went wrong and what went right? And how would you defend against this kind of attack?

Whatever enemy they were facing, they weren't able to counter anything of the attacker, which makes them lucky.

They should have while the supressive fire is still ongoing, have their spiclets dismount and immediately go into the compound as staying in their vehicles for this long could have spelled disaster for them were the enemy to be in better shape.

To defend against this kind of attack would be intelligence, a guy standing somewhere on the streets which go toward the compound with means to communicate that there is a bunch of bandidos incoming.

I say this as you can't have armed guards standing around on the rooftops, the authorities would notice and take you on.

Those are my thoughts on that, it looked like a slaughter. If the defenders would have any means of defence the attackers would have been in serious trouble.

Washington sheriffs refuse to enforce new gun control laws.

https://archive.fo/ehYxb

https://www.apnews.com/b186ce346d2d446babceaf15fec68e6c

Sheriffs in a dozen Washington counties say they won’t enforce the state’s sweeping new restrictions on semi-automatic rifles until the courts decide whether they are constitutional.

A statewide initiative approved by voters in November raised the minimum age for buying semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21, required buyers to first pass a firearms safety course and added expanded background checks and gun storage requirements, among other things. It was among the most comprehensive of a string of state-level gun-control measures enacted in the U.S. after last year’s shooting at a Florida high school.

The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation have filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging the initiative is unconstitutional. They say its purchasing requirements violate the right to bear arms and stray into the regulation of interstate commerce, which is the province of the federal government.

Sheriffs in 12 mostly rural, conservative counties — Grant, Lincoln, Okanogan, Cowlitz, Douglas, Benton, Pacific, Stevens, Yakima, Wahkiakum, Mason and Klickitat — along with the police chief of the small town of Republic, have said they will not enforce the new law until the issues are decided by the courts.

/k/ builds a gunship

When /k/ finally does go to war, we're going to need air support.

Problem is that we're poorfags and this isn't going to change anytime soon, so lets explore the viability of CAS, Aircav, and medivac on a budget so we can live out our Rhodesian Fireforce fantasies IRL.

As actual helicopters look mad complex to build and maintain, and fixed wing aircraft come with the need for infrastructure, I propose heavy autogyros.

They're far simpler to maintain and there's less to break than helos, they can autorotate allowing for safer engine-out capability than most aircraft, and depending on the design they are only slightly harder to fly than regular fixed wing craft.

The downside is that they are not high-performance in any respect, which is why they are never chosen by organised militaries given the choice between them and conventional aircraft.

Why are gunstore owners such pricks? I have yet to walk into a gunstore where the owners aren't humongous assholes for no fucking reason. They ignore customers, they get indignant when you ask questions, they get pissy if you want to compare, even asking for basic fucking directions elicits groans. All the shops near my house are like this, I thought it was just a WA thing, but I got o OR and it's the same fucking thing.This wouldn't be a problem if they didn't charge outrageous fucking prices on their shit.

Germany's Bundeswehr has suspended a lieutenant colonel in the elite Special Forces Command (KSK) commando unit on suspicion of right-wing extremism, according to the military's counterintelligence service MAD.

The KSK, a unit of about 70 soldiers, made headlines last year after a farewell party for a company commander featured a soldier demonstrating the Hitler salute and right-wing rock music.

So there have been occasions where, officers or even generals didnt take cover. I also heard that there has been at least one attack by the white army in the russian civil war, that was basicly a march towards the red army position by the white army.

They went in marching formation and decoracted uniforms which caused the reds to simply surrender or run away.

Does anybody know something about this? I couldnt find anything myself.

This started out as a response to a picture in a thread, then quickly barreled out as a rant. As a preface, I am pro liberty as hell- rothbard is my spirit animal and you cannot overwhelm the leyonhelm.

But I can't understand owning that many guns.

I get it, there's an appeal to having an arseload of pretty guns. Can't imagine cleaning day being anything less than a giant pain in the arse. For the amount of money you'd spend on all that though, you'd get objectively better value out of a few REALLY nice, good guns that you're going to shoot the everloving shit out of and learn the manual of arms blindfolded and know which loads shoot the best out of which guns and to what degree. You can only shoot many different guns before the skills you can train on one gun get divided among the many.

The best thing about the AR platform is the fact that there is stupid amounts of customization involved- it is entirely possible to have but one lower and a couple uppers in, say, 5.56, .300blk, 308, or any of the many .308 derivatives. If you reload you should, you flaming homosexual you benefit from only having to buy a few components across different platforms, like using the same bullets and powders in .300 blackout or .308, or 5.56 and 22-250. You could even simply down-load the .308 to .300 blk levels and get the same performance, enabling you to focus on getting the loads exactly right with more brass for the same cost. Ideally, all of your guns should be able to share components- say, a person who carries .327 federal has a .30 caliber as his fighting rifle and his long ranged kebab remover is a shit-hot .300 magnum. This means only two bullets, two powders, two primer types, three brass types, three die sets on quick change bushings. 3, 2, 3, and 4 if you include a good shotgun (use a powder like universal in the pistol and shotgun).

Interesting, secret and unknown operations

This thread is for the discussion of interesting and largely unknown military and intelligence service missions. I will start with an example.

Operation Sommerregen(Summer Rain)

Operation Sommerregen was a covert operation conducted by the BND=Bundesnachrichtendienst(Federal Intelligence Service) in Afghanistan during the Soviet Intervention in the 80s. The task of this mission was to capture Soviet equipment so it could be transported to Germany for analysis and testing. The Operation started in 1981 and most likely ended with the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan in 1989. Accompanied by elite soldiers the agents entered the county via the Afghanistan-Pakistan border as humanitarian workers. To actually get their hands on Soviet equipment the soldiers and agents were working together with the Mujahideen but obviously had to disguise their identity as German military personnel. Agents that took part in the mission reported to have worked closely together with the Mujahideen or otherwise they would have denied the cooperation. This close relation led to various engagements where German soldiers were fighting alongside the Mujahideen against Soviet soldiers. During the course of the Operation various equipment such as guns, ammunition, grenades, anti-tank weapons, radio devices, navigation devices and (parts of) armored vehicles/tanks/helicopters/planes has been secured. The Operation has ended without any German soldiers/agents missing or dead and is regarded as a huge success for the BND. A lot of information about Operation Sommerregen is still classified and is likely going to remain for some time.

U.S. "Gets Its Ass Handed To It" In World War III Simulations: RAND

"We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary,"

>In simulated World War III scenarios, the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China, two top war planners warned last week. “In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it" RAND analyst David Ochmanek said Thursday.

>RAND's wargames show how US Armed Forces - colored blue on wargame maps - experience the most substantial losses in one scenario after another and still can't thwart Russia or China - which predictably is red - from accomplishing their objectives: annihilating Western forces.

>"We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary," he warned.

>In the next military conflict, which some believe may come as soon as the mid-2020s, all five battlefield domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace, will be heavily contested, suggesting the U.S. could have a difficult time in achieving superiority as it has in prior conflicts.

>The simulated war games showed, the "red" aggressor force often destroys U.S. F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters on the runway, sends several Naval fleets to the depths, destroys US military bases, and through electronic warfare, takes control of critical military communication systems. In short, a gruesome, if simulated, annihilation of some of the most modern of US forces.

>“In every case I know of,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense with years of wargaming experience, “the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”

>So, as Russia and China develop fifth-generation fighters and hypersonic missiles, “things that rely on sophisticated base infrastructures like runways and fuel tanks are going to have a hard time,” Ochmanek said. “Things that sail on the surface of the sea are going to have a hard time.”

>He said "$24 billion a year for the next five years would be a good expenditure" to prepare the military for World War III.

>With the defense budget stuck around $700 billion per annum for the remainder of President Trump's term, America's Warhawks are inciting fear through simulated wargames with one purpose only: demand more taxpayers' money for war spending.

Is there a point to having an army in western europe?

1) Basically all of western Europe is in NATO, meaning none of the countries there neighbour any potential aggressor. Russia would first need to barrel through Poland in order to get to Germany and France, for example.

2) Most of european militaries are a complete joke that wouldn't even slow down the enemy.

3) All of them count on US to do the fighting.

4) Despite the sad state of the military, it still manages to eat up massive amounts of money every year as well as features one of the most corrupt sectors in almost any country.

With these facts in mind, is there even a point for a western European country to have any army whatsoever? Their armies are incapable of doing anything useful (except maybe pretending they're doing something in Afghanistan and syria so that the US can pretend it's not there alone), they are irrelevant when it comes to combatting foreign aggression, they are not threatened by any of its neighbours and they have the US to do any fighting for them should Russia try getting there through Poland. So why not ditch the army entirely? Just dissolve all of it and use the money more constructively, send all the troops into the private sector to fuel the economy, and sell all the left over hardware for a quick buck.

Alternatively, they could increase military spending to actually make their army useful for something, at which point it might be worth keeping, but they don't seem too keen on doing that.

New Zealand man refuses to give up guns, gets killed in standoff with police

Man wanted after guns found at Christchurch home dies during standoff with police

Police say a 54-year-old man is dead after a overnight standoff with police, following the discovery of guns at a property.

In a statement this morning, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said a search warrant was issued yesterday at a St Martins address where police found a number of firearms.

Police then sought a 54-year-old man over the guns, but he died during a subsequent standoff with police.

Police located the man inside a stopped vehicle in the Richmond Park area about 12.30am today, but he refused to get out of his vehicle.

A police negotiation team spoke with him over a number of hours, and a police helicopter was called in, as well as Armed Offender Squad members.

About 3.40am, police approached the vehicle and found that the man was critically injured with what looked to be a stab wound - a knife was found in the vehicle.

Members of the public reported hearing gunshots, but police said that was the sound of gas canisters being deployed.

Mr Bush said a high priority investigation is underway to find out whether or not this man posed a threat to the community.

Further searches of properties and interviews with family and associates will be carried out.

Mr Bush said that, at this time, there is no evidence to suggest the man was connected to the March 15 terrorist attack, but that they are looking at any potential link.

Police will remain in the area of Richmond Park and St Martins as scene examinations continue.

Mr Bush said he was grateful to the members of the public who had reported the suspicious activity of the man.

/K/ommando kills qouta during confiscation

The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case.

Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, a incident that a source said stemmed from him punching a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face after a dispute.

The case was resolved as a misdemeanor conviction, and California Department of Justice records show he agreed to surrender a black .223-caliber Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in November.

Court records also show Limbaugh did not possess any other weapons, and authorities have yet to determine where he obtained the two semiautomatic handguns he is believed to have used in a Thursday night rampage that killed the 22-year-old officer and shot up a surrounding downtown neighborhood.

Davis police had refused to release the name of the gunman, but the Yolo County coroner confirmed his identity Saturday after The Bee published Limbaugh’s name.

Leftover Halloween decorations still hang on the gate outside his front door – a green and black “Beware” sign and a plastic skull.

An unsightly brown tarp was pulled tight across the fence in the front yard Saturday, and potted plants that have long been neglected sit below the front window. A calico kitten could be seen moving around inside the home, but there was no sign of other occupants.

“It’s a good group of people who live there,” said Grace, another neighbor who asked that her last name not be used. “It’s unfortunate what happened.”

Down the block, within eyesight of the small house, the Corona family gathered at the shrine marking the spot where Corona was shot and killed Thursday night, crying and holding on to each other.

Volunteers walked down Fifth Street early Saturday tying blue ribbons around every tree, including the old, gnarled tree that stands directly outside Limbaugh’s home.

F35 lost over pacific ocean

A Japanese F35-A has been lost over the pacific ocean.

Right now it is unknown where the plane even is. A crash is the most likely outcome at this point, as no airbase has reported an F35 emergency landing anywhere.

This is the second time an F35 was lost. Last year an F35-B of the USA crashed in Beaufort SC due to a failure in the fuel flow system.

Missouri to pass a bill to lift all Federal Gun Control in the state

http://archive.is/4oUZ7

>Missouri may have just made the most monumental step towards freedom and individual liberty since the signing of the Bill of Rights. In an upcoming vote by Missouri’s state senate, the state is expected to pass a bill that would nullify ALL Federal gun laws and regulations, and make enforcement of those laws by federal officers within the State of Missouri a criminal offense. Republicans control both U.S. Senate seats and more than two-thirds of the seats in both the Missouri House and Senate.

>Like it’s predecessor, SB613, Bill SB367 and it’s companion, House Bill HB786, would prevent all state agencies and their employees from enforcing any federal law that infringes the Second Amendment in any way, including gun registrations, fees, fines, licenses and bans. Originally authored in 2014, a former version of the bill was also passed, but vetoed by then Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

>For added measure, SB367’s authors went into great detail on what federal laws will be “considered null and void and of no effect.”

<(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

<(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

19th century naval warfare

AUTISM ALERT

Let’s talk about the change in naval tactics and technologies through the course of the second half of the eighteen hundreds.

Quick rundown for anons not knowing what I mean:

The transition from mainly wind driven ships to steam engines (paddle/screws), the change from classical cannons to breechloaders and the conversion from wooden hulls to iron/steel hulls.

Of course the mishmash between all the above welcomed, that’s what made that period so special.

Share stuff you have read, maybe what your country did to adapt to the frenetic changing times or about wars that took place in that very time period and where the changes of naval warfare were felt (Crimean war or First/Second Schleswig war for example).

Europoor Buying His First Raifu

Sup /k/.

FInally got round to getting a firearms permit and would like you gents' thoughts on first acquisitions.

No prior experience with funz save for lurking this forum and bingeing hickok45 videos.

I was planning to go for a .22lr Walther P22 (300 Eu), but given that I can't afford to buy too many of these things because of financial constraints (make good $ for a europoor but saving for gradschool) I thought maybe I'd be better off getting a more fun calibre straight away.

I always planned to get a bolt-action rifle also and thought a Mosin-Nagant would be nice since it's not too expensive (400-450 Eu where I live. Just about twice what it is in the US lol) and the 7.62x54R isn't too expensive unlike some other rifle calibres where I live, also you guys seem to talk them up a lot.

Guns we're allowed to own where I live: Basically anything you can own in the US save for snub-nosed revolvers and hollow point rounds. Lots of cheap and cheerful Cugir and Norinco stuff going around.

Things I intend to do with them: Range shooting. Not allowed to use them for anything else or anywhere else.

US missile defense system takes out ICBM threat in first salvo test

WASHINGTON — The Missile Defense Agency is deeming the first salvo test of its homeland missile defense system against an intercontinental ballistic missile threat a success, according an agency statement.

>The MDA conducted the test Monday. It last tested the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System’s (GMD) Ground-Based Interceptors (GBI) against an ICBM target in May 2017. At that time, the MDA’s director said the agency was next shooting to conduct a more complex salvo test involving two GBIs against an ICBM, because firing off two GBIs against one target is more operationally realistic and important in proving out the effectiveness of the overall system.

>In the Monday test, the lead GBI destroyed the ICBM’s reentry vehicle “as it was designed to do,” according to the agency’s statement. The trailing GBI “then looked at the resulting debris and remaining objects, and, not finding any other reentry vehicles, selected the next ‘most lethal object’ it could identify, and struck that, precisely as it was designed to do,” the statement adds.

>The ICBM target was launched from the Reagan Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, which is over 4,000 miles away from the GBI interceptors buried in silos in the ground at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. “This was the first GBI salvo intercept of a complex, threat-representative ICBM target, and it was a critical milestone,” MDA Director Air Force Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves said in the statement. “The system worked exactly as it was designed to do, and the results of this test provide evidence of the practicable use of the salvo doctrine within missile defense,” he said. “The Ground-based Midcourse Defense system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat.”

US Army's New SMG

>The American subsidiary of Swiss gunmaker B&T has won a multi-million-dollar contract to supply the U.S. Army with a variant of its 9mm APC9 submachine gun. For almost a year, the service has been evaluating a number of proposed weapons as part of an effort to give personal security details added firepower.

>The Army quietly announced that it had awarded B&T USA the deal, worth more than $2.5 million, on the U.S. government’s main contracting website FedBizOpps on Mar. 29, 2019, but did not specify which weapon specifically it was buying. A trusted source familiar with the contract confirmed the gun in question was a version of the APC9 PRO series, but could not say which model specifically. The Army now expects to purchase at least 350 of what it officially calls the Sub Compact Weapon, or SCW, with additional options to buy up to 1,000 of the guns in total. The order also includes unspecified accessories, spare parts, and services.

>The Army initially kicked off the SCW competition in May 2018, before canceling the project and quickly rebooting it in a revised form two months later. Along with B&T USA, its Swiss-headquartered parent company had also entered the SCW competition itself in partnership with Trident Rifles. The Army passed on that bid, along with other offers from Angstadt Arms, Global Ordnance, Shield Arms, and Sig Sauer all of which submitted entries, as well.

>Reports in 2018 had indicated that B&T, through Trident Rifles, had initially offered a variant of the company’s MP9 machine pistol. However, this gun has a side-folding stock, which would have disqualified it under the Army’s revised requirements.

>Though we don't know the exact configuration of the guns the Army is now buying, the APC9 PRO family of guns already includes a variant, the APC9 PRO K, that meets a number of the Army’s requirements, such as a barrel shorter than five and a half inches, a weight under seven pounds, and a stock that retracts and extends rather than folds to the side. B&T presently offers this gun with only a semi-automatic fire option, while any Army version would have a fully automatic mode.

Attacking infrastructure

As an addon to the helicopter thread, infrastructure will be very important for the enemy. As they need to use it to transport their fuel, ammunition and other resources to their troops. Industry that supplies the enemy will also need to be cut off.

I assume that most military is not hardcore and only there for a paycheck and benefits, and will desert as soon as things look even a tiny bit bleak.

As to how things look at this time, taking out infrastructure is not terribly hard. As Metcalf showed:

Of course, this is useless against websites that show CAD previews, but it's still fucking annoying. Leave our goddamn physibles alone, Sweden. You can't stop humans from arming themselves.

Of course, there are plenty of websites that only host the files (such as http://herohog.com/GunBuilds/), and can't have anything uploaded, and websites that have file previews, but websites like The Pirate Bay are going to be hit pretty hard by this.

The only thing that annoys me more than the project itself is that they constantly refer to 3D printed gun file distribution as "the 3D printed gun market", which is so obviously wrong, it pisses me off. The 3D printed gun community (actually, the entire 3D printing community) is literally the most open source community next to Linux and GNU.

USAF Light Attack aircraft Program thread

https://www.defensenews.com/air/2018/12/18/start-of-air-forces-light-attack-plane-competition-pushed-back-until-next-year/

Sounds like USAF weenies are stalling, probably because they feel this is now beneath them, and they are all wanting to join Trump's new Space Farce. I say take that part of the budget and give it to US Army and USMC (light attack should be able to land on USMC helicopter carriers).

Maybe USA should just buy Su-25/28 from Georgian FSU factory! First time in history airplane bombs factory where it was built! :)

" In early August 2008, Russian Su-25s attacked the Tbilisi Aircraft Manufacturing plant, where the Su-25 is produced, dropping bombs on the factory's airfield.[47]"

SU-25/28 from Georgia, USSR today probably cheaper than a Cessna "light attack" will be after USAF weenies get done padding the expenses with US based factory.

How about ULTRA-light attack? http://www.sunflightcraft.com/en/paraplane_whatis1.php sure beats humping that backpack on foot.

Hypothetical German technological development in a post-WWII scenario

Hypothetically, Germany pulls off a victory in WW2. Bongs peace out after Battle of Britain, Americans still declare war on and win against the Japanese, but Hitler never honors the tripartite pact and declares war on America. By 1946 the Soviets are pushed back east of the Urals and what's left of Russia breaks up into a myriad of China-esque Siberian warlord states and claimants to the former Soviet Union. Chicoms annex Vladivostok, but are beaten by Nationalists with German, American and British support. Central Asian countries break off from the failed USSR to become German-influenced states. The world prepares itself for a Cold War between the democracies and the fascists. But what type of technology will the Germans pursue? Jets, Flying wings, nukes? Will they ever finish that aircraft carrier?

Defence against laser weapons

How would /k/ defend against Dazzlers with a limited budget?

Dazzlers are fucking dangerous to civilians, especially if more powerful versions are developed which could permanently blind. The fact that they can fire over a large area and change frequencies quickly means there would be no way to take cover from an attack before it hits you. Although these weapons are illegal for governments to make, the fact that improvised versions wouldn't be hard for terrorist/rebels/whoever to jury-rig means defending against them is important. Pilots and other airmen are especially vulnerable, owing to the fact that the attack doesn't really suffer fall off when aiming up.

The most total defence I could think of was basically a pass through VR headset, but this would be impractical as the vision inside is not accurate and lag free enough for use in combat and would cause vision issues if worn constantly. Simply wearing an expensive pair of thermal googles would also work, but the issues of limited vision and constant use still apply, with the added problem of cost. Sunglasses, ski-goggles and even shooting glasses would be basically useless as dazzlers could change power and frequency quickly, unless /k/ knows some special gear for defence against this.

Some sort of compound in a smoke grenade which refracted all frequencies in and near the visible range and infra-red would be useful, but in practice it would only be useful as cover if you already knew you were under attack.

GIVE US MORE SHEKELS SO WE CAN KEEP PRETENDING TO BE USEFUL, STUPID GOYIM

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/nra-could-shut-down-forever-group-warns-in-fundraising-letter-194322998.html

>In November, alarm bells started to ring about the National Rifle Association’s finances. At the time, the gun rights group was reportedly unable to afford coffee for its employees. At the time, the news was just another financial hit for the organization that had been suffering from declining revenues and membership dues.

>Now, in a fundraising letter sent this month, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has kvetched that the NRA could shut down forever, blaming fellow Jew and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

>“Right now we’re facing an attack that’s unprecedented not just in the history of the NRA, but in the entire history of our country,” LaPierre wrote. “And if this attack succeeds, NRA will be forced to shut down forever.”

>Currently, the gun rights group is entangled in a lawsuit against the state of New York and Gov. Cuomo. The lawsuit alleges that the governor in his capacity has pressured financial institutions and insurers to stop working with the NRA.

>Insurance company Lockton provided personal liability insurance for members of the NRA’s Carry Guard program, which provides training for self-defense and other resources. According to the Carry Guard website, “without insurance, lawful self-defense can cost you a fortune.” The insurance is no longer available in New York after Lockton was hit with a $7.5 million fine in May 2018. New York’s Department of Financial Services said the NRA is not licensed to conduct insurance business in the state.

>“Cuomo’s tactics are already working,” the NRA says in its letter. “One by one, more and more banks and insurance companies across the country are knuckling under to Cuomo’s threat — and telling NRA they won’t do business with us — because they don’t want to be targeted and crushed by Cuomo’s strong-arm tactics and the vast power of thousands of New York bureaucrats.”

>“Unless we can force Cuomo to break off this attack, NRA will have no choice but to cease operations after 147 years of fighting for freedom.”

>According to a Daily Beast report, LaPierre then compared Cuomo’s efforts to government efforts to crack down on dissent in China, Cuba, and North Korea.

>“You and I have seen how the power of government has been used in China and Cuba and North Korea to stamp out opposing views and silence political opponents,” he wrote. “But never in my life did I think we’d see these tactics brazenly and openly deployed by government officials, right here in the United States, to destroy people and organizations they disagree with.”

>The NRA then makes a final plea for contributions, saying that the group cannot “survive without your help.”

Reminder that Wayne LaPissant makes five million shekels a year off the NRA(not counting bonuses) and then complains that the group can't afford coffee for employees. All while refusing to take a pay cut, of course.

Friendly reminder that the NRA made no significant gun rights pushes in the two years that Republicowards controlled all three branches of government.

DARE YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRUTH?

I often hear people talk about the Constitution. People speak of the law and make claims that the Constitution guarantees our rights. Few people are aware of what the Constitution is or how it works. The Constitution is not a law, it does not bind the government or grant any rights, it never has. Furthermore, the Constitution is not a physical barrier or a magical parchment that guarantees rights of any kind. The Constitution is a blueprint that free men can follow in order to remain free if they so choose. The entirety of the blueprint depends on the 2nd amendment and it’s true meaning. The only thing in human history that has ever held rulers in check is the threat of death. The 2nd amendment does not mean that the government must allow you to own guns, nor does it exist to ensure your personal protection or amusement. What the 2nd amendment means is that if you choose to be free, then YOU MUST keep weapons in order to overthrow your rulers if it becomes necessary. Nobody can, or will give you permission to do this, it is your responsibility as a free man. The 1st amendment, likewise, is not a right, but a demand. The function of the 1st amendment is to allow non-violent communication between the government and the governed. Without the option of non-violent communication, violence is the only possible solution. All historical precedents show us that our modern beliefs about how society SHOULD or COULD work, do not stand up to reality. The laws of nature are in fact, the only true laws, all else is fantasy. So, when you hear people speak about how the “Constitution grants us rights” or the “Constitution guarantees” or “The Constitution protects me”, understand that they have no concept of what the Constitution means, or what it is. The Constitution has never protected you and it never will. The Constitution is a blueprint by which you can protect yourself. The Constitution does not grant you rights, it presents you with responsibilities that you may or may not accept.

Do not attempt to read between the lines of what I have written. Do not look for a hidden message or other such wizardry, for you will find none. Furthermore, do not fantasize about how my comments may pertain to some current issue that others are making a fuss about, nor assume that it relates to something that you saw on the television. My words were very basic and simple and their meaning was not hidden by parable or rhetoric. Although, you may assume that I am making a call to arms or violence, I assure you that I am not. I would not bother to make such a call, as I know exactly what you will do. In reality, your offspring WILL inherit the yoke of slavery and you will make yourself as comfortable as possible as the world burns around you. Enjoy your sportsball, your television shows and your cheap food. Continue to recite your magical incantations about “Democracy”, “America”, and “Shall Not Be Infringed”, if it makes you feel better. Whether consciously or by deception, this is the fate that you have chosen. Nobody is coming to save you. If you gleam nothing else from what I have written, understand this, by choosing slavery, you have allied yourself with the enemies of free men. If a free man thinks for one moment that you are his enemy, then he will kill you without hesitation and in your fantasies of freedom, you don’t blame him.

Air Force Gearing Up for Next A-10 Re-Winging Contract

Air Force Gearing Up for Next A-10 Re-Winging Contract

http://archive.is/aT9xw

https://www.military.com/dodbuzz/2019/04/02/air-force-gearing-next-10-re-winging-contract.html

2 Apr 2019

Military.com By Oriana Pawlyk

>The U.S. Air Force is preparing for the next A-10 Warthog contract to re-wing more of the close-air support aircraft.

>The next contract for the "A-10-Thunderbolt II Advanced-Wing Continuation Kit," known as "ATTACK," is going through source selection and is expected to be awarded this fall, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said Monday. The service has $267 million set aside to buy "about 20 total wings," she said.

>The service last year said it had begun searching for a new company to rebuild wings on the A-10 after ending its arrangement with Boeing Co., even though officials have not committed to re-winging the entire fleet. The Air Force has 281 A-10s in its inventory, but it has decided to maintain wings for only six of its nine A-10 combat squadrons through roughly 2032.

>Boeing is on track to complete its re-winging agreement, known as the "Enhanced Wing Assembly," for 173 aircraft by this summer, Stefanek said. So far, 169 aircraft have been re-winged under the contract, with the remaining four to be completed in the next few months.

>But work on the next few close-air support mission planes is changing as the Air Force moves forward with new acquisition and research and development techniques.

>Dr. Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, said "digital engineering" sometimes allows the service to bypass the regular manufacturing process for parts.

>Digital engineering is unlike 3D printing, which produces a physical part. If the service owns the rights to manufacture specific components of a plane or weapon, digital engineering lets developers see how to make the part and, in some cases, allows maintainers and engineers to create it themselves if they have the right tools and materials.

>That's been working on the A-10, Roper said.

>"I think new technologies like digital engineering allow us to change how production and design are done, and I think … [digital engineering] will allow us to not raise the cost of sustainment for very heterogeneous Air Force," he said last month during the annual McAleese & Associates conference.

>"We don't have nearly enough [digital engineering programs]," he said, adding that it is also being used on the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent program to replace the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile system.

>With digital engineering, the Air Force "can make smart choices" in very early stages, Roper said. In addition to potentially giving aircraft a few additional flight years, "we can completely change the game on how we do aircraft development and fielding," he said.

I for one welcome the continuation of a decades work and input from great CAS pilots such as Hans Ulrich Rudel, and the A-10's inspiration from the Ju-87 and Il-2; it's a beautiful plane and I envy the Americans for being able to see these things up close.

http://archive.is/fCNez

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/spain-far-right-vox-santiago-abascal-looser-gun-laws-legitimate-defense-clause/

>Madrid – The leader of Spain's far-right Vox party has said it should be much easier for law-abiding Spaniards to own firearms for self-defense, and use them for that purpose without legal consequences. In an interview published Wednesday by a website specializing in weapons, Santiago Abascal said that "the concept of legitimate defense needs to be widened" in Spain.

>Abascal is Vox's candidate in the upcoming general election on April 28. He has bragged in the past about carrying a handgun himself because his family was for years a target of the Basque militant group ETA.

>Under Spain's current law, that threat qualified Abascal for a firearms license which most of the nation's residents can't get.

>Guns ownership is tightly regulated in Spain. According to the U.S. Library of Congress, firearms licences for personal security are only granted to those "who can prove that a real danger to their security exists." All fully automatic weapons are "strictly forbidden to civilians," as they are in the U.S. and most other Western nations.

>Abascal, the 42-year-old leader of a party that only came into existence in 2013 and has yet to get a member elected to the nation's congress or the European Parliament, said the laws should be eased.

>"We need an urgent radical change in the law, not only so that the Spaniards without criminal records and in full use of their mental faculties can keep a weapon in their house… But so that they can use it in real life-threatening situations without fear of facing a judicial nightmare, prison sentences or even the prospect of having to pay compensation to the relatives of criminals who assaulted them," he told the "armas.es" website.

>Official statistics show that Spain's rates of homicide and burglary are lower than most of its European neighbors.

>Similar changes to those Abascal's party is pushing from the fringes of Spanish politics have are also being espoused by his European neighbors in Italy, but the Italian right-wing has already risen to power, and is getting the changes into the books.

>As CBS News reported last week, Italy's Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini and his League party, which became part of a coalition government in 2018, has already eased restrictions on how many firearms – including assault-style weapons like the AR-15 – Italians can own, and the size of magazines permitted.

>The government is also currently supporting a "legitimate defense" bill that would, among other things, decrease penalties for Italians who kill someone perceived to be a threat in their own home.

>Abascal's Vox party has thus far only got a handful of politicians elected to a regional legislature in the country's south. However, party membership jumped significantly in 2017 after a terror attack in Barcelona, and his stance on firearms is clearly aimed at framing the Vox party as tough on security ahead of the April elections.

GOOD LUCK, SPAIN

AVE IMPERATOR SALVINI

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/31/italy-passes-salvini-backed-self-defence-law-to-protect-homeowners/

http://archive.is/fnIry

>The Italian Senate passed the new legitimate defence bill this week, liberalising the previous self-defence code and allowing citizens more options to protect their homes from burglars and other intruders.

>The reform, which modifies article 52 of the Italian penal code, now allows Italians to use “a legitimately held weapon” to protect themselves and members of their household, making it far less likely individuals will be brought up on charges for defending themselves, Il Giornale reports.

>The new changes were welcomed by populist Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini, who has previously pushed hard for self-defence reform.

>“It is a beautiful day for the Italians in which the sacrosanct right to self-defence is sanctioned,” Salvini said.

>Previously, the Lega leader had even offered to pay the legal expenses of those brought up on criminal charges for using force to protect their homes.

>“A thief comes into your house, company or store, and you defend yourself? It will be your right to do so, and the thug (and his relatives) will not be able to ask for a euro of compensation,” Salvini vowed.

>“Besides, you won’t end up on trial for years and you won’t pay your own pocket: the state will cover any legal expenses of those who defended themselves.”

>“From today the criminals know that to be a robber in Italy is more difficult: it is an even more dangerous job,” the League (Lega) leader observed

>Around 4.5 million homes in Italy have access to firearms, according to figures released in June of last year.

>33 million Italian homes have anti-theft doors, while 10 million or so have alarms and often video cameras as well.

>The new policy marks a stark contrast to the United Kingdom, where it is alleged that home defence policies have made British homeowners easy targets — to the point where Chilean criminal gangs have been known to fly in to rob British homes in what has been dubbed “burglary tourism.”

Thus proving, definitively, that gun rights can be pushed for, even in the wake of a mass shooting. The (((NRA))) has no excuse.

Britbong Soldier reprimanded for not playing a "training sim" correctly

https://archive.fo/eQ5rh

https://archive.fo/sCLHv

>An Army rifleman has been reprimanded after going on a ‘killing spree’ in a virtual battlefield exercise.

>In the computer game, he shot dead one of his comrades and destroyed vehicles to kill several others.

>According to defence sources, the furious squaddie from 3rd Battalion, the Rifles, got fed up with ‘playing soldiers’ on a computer screen and decided to go rogue.

>His actions amused fellow soldiers, but commanders accused him of lacking professionalism.

>A Rifles source said: ‘We’d spent two weeks sitting in front of laptops pretending we were in a really hostile urban environment – I’d challenge anyone to take it seriously for that long. All this was taking place in an office at our headquarters, when we’d rather be doing real-life soldiering outside in the fresh air. But there’s less of that sort of exercise these days because the Army has committed to Unit-based Virtual Training.

>‘We were supposed to imagine we were travelling in armoured vehicles through a really hostile built-up area; one of the lads just lost his rag and “opened fire” as it were, killing the soldier next to him. He then drove down the street deliberately smashing into cars. It’s safe to say the officers in our battalion did not find it as funny as we did.’

>After Exercise Urban Strike, the unnamed Rifleman received a dressing down from top brass and was formally charged with disobeying orders. His punishment was to spend a weekend carrying out guard duties at the 3 Rifles base at Redford Barracks in the Scottish capital.

>A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said last night: ‘We take the training of our service personnel very seriously and anyone who is disruptive to this training will receive disciplinary action. Virtual reality training programmes are able to deliver greater flexible training and replicate complex scenarios allowing for rapid experimentation, development of tactics and ability to test new vehicles in multiple environments.’

German CDU leader propose EU Aircraft Carrier-

Angela Merkel backs plan for EU aircraft carrier

Angela Merkel has voiced support for some major aspects of CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer's EU vision. The proposals include a joint European aircraft carrier and a permanent EU seat on the Security Council.

https://www.dw.com/en/angela-merkel-backs-plan-for-eu-aircraft-carrier/a-47860895

archive.is/2Xcyc

>German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday endorsed some of the key European reform ideas put forward by her successor to the Christian Democratic Union leadership Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, including a joint EU aircraft carrier.

>Kramp-Karrenbauer, who succeeded Merkel as leader of the CDU in December, etched out her vision in a weekend response to French President Emmanuel Macron's proposals for European Union reform.

>Her essay included a call for a stronger EU border force, a pan-European climate pact and a common market for banking.

A joint European aircraft carrier

>In her essay, Kramp-Karrenbauer had noted that Germany and France were already working together on a future European combat aircraft and said that "the next step could be to start on the symbolic project of building a common European aircraft carrier" to underline the EU's global security role.

>Merkel, who has previously spoken in favor of greater European defence cooperation, said that a joint aircraft carrier would be a good idea in the future, but added that the bloc does "have to do other things as a priority."

>"It's right and good that we have such equipment on the European side, and I'm happy to work on it," Merkel said.

A single European seat at the Security Council

>Merkel also backed Kramp-Karrenbauer's thoughts on a single European seat in the UN Security Council, saying it was "a very good concept for the future" and would help "to gather the European voices."

>Germany has for years campaigned for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council alongside World War II victor nations the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France.

>"The fact that France is skeptical about a European seat at the UN is well-known," Merkel said.

Some divergence from Macron

>Kramp-Karrenbauer also made some proposals that diverged from Macron's vision, suggesting that the European Parliament should only sit in Brussels and remove its second seat in the northeastern French city of Strasbourg.

>She also disagreed with Macron's idea for Europe-wide coordination on minimum salaries, arguing that the "Europeanization of social services and the minimum wage would be the wrong way."

>Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert stressed at a news conference Monday that Kramp-Karrenbauer's plans for Europe "harmonize with the thoughts of the chancellor."

tl;dr

>german (((politicians))) dismantle and destroy a beautiful and perfectly functioning armed forces

>CDUcunts expect everyone to chip into a big floating joke that can be taken down with a single cruise missile from Kaliningrad/Occupied Konigsberg.

Lockheed F-35 Dinged as Boeing's F-15X Wins in Air Force's Plan

Five-year plan calls for 48 F-35s per year, down from 54

>The U.S. Air Force outlined a five-year plan that showed the extent of the Pentagon’s push to bring back Boeing Co.’s F-15 fighter in an upgraded version, a $7.8 billion investment that would jump from eight of the planes next year to 18 each year through 2024.

>While Lockheed Martin Corp.’s newer F-35 would get $37.5 billion over the five years, the more advanced plane would still take a hit. The service now plans to buy 48 F-35s each year from fiscal 2021 through 2023 instead of the 54 previously planned.

>A week after President Donald Trump presented his proposed budget for the fiscal year that begins in October, the Air Force spelled out a longer-range five-year plan on Monday that’s sure to set off fierce congressional debate, including over the plan to buy 80 F-15X models and slow the trajectory of the F-35. That debate already has begun.

>“As our nation’s only fifth-generation stealth fighter being built today, an investment in additional production and support for the F-35 fighter fleet is critical to ensuring the U.S. maintains air superiority,” five senators said in a letter last month.

>The letter to Trump and Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan was signed by Republicans John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Lisa Murkowski or Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine and Marco Rubio of Florida. The F-35 is built in Texas, and some will be based in Alaska.

>General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that Pentagon officials decided to buy the F-15X partly because it’s “slightly less expensive for procurement than the F-35, but it’s more than 50 percent cheaper to operate over time and it has twice as many hours in terms of how long it lasts.”

>Among other major elements of the Air Force’s five-year plan sent to Congress:

<Northrop Grumman Corp.’s new B-21 stealth bomber would get $20 billion over the next five years, with funding jumping from $3 billion in 2020 to $5 billion in 2023. Of the $5 billion, $2.3 billion would be for the first year of major procurement.

<Boeing would get $19 billion through 2024 for purchase of 66 of its KC-46 tankers, fewer than the 75 previously planned through 2023. The new plan calls for 15 in 2021 but 12 each in 2022 and 2023, instead of the 15 previously planned each year.

<The service plans to spend $12.4 billion through 2024 procuring space systems.

<Research on the Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared early-warning satellite would total $11.4 billion through 2024.

<Lockheed’s F-22 fighter could see as much as $18 billion in spending for upgrades and support.

<Air Force spending on setting up and running the new Space Force is budgeted at $363 million through 2024, averaging about $72 million annually.

<Space investments for fiscal 2020 include $1.67 billion for space launch and ground service agreements pitting Elon Musk’s SpaceX against the United Launch Alliance that’s a joint venture between Lockheed and Boeing; $1.3 billion for Lockheed’s GPS-III satellites and Raytheon Co.’s OCX ground control station program; and $1 billion for satellite communications programs such as the family of “Beyond-Line-of-Sight” terminals.

<The five-year plan calls for spending as much as $8.7 billion on precision-guided weapons made by Lockheed, Boeing and Raytheon. That includes $1.4 billion on the new Small Diameter Bomb-II that can attack both fixed and moving targets in bad weather, $2 billion for the GPS-guided Joint Direct Attack Munition and $2.2 billion on the extended-range stealth Jassm missile used last year against Syrian military targets.

Wild monkeys with herpes in Florida, Population on the verge of doubling

Florida Monkey Wars when?

What’s the best anti-monkey load out?

A population of monkeys that lives in Silver Springs State Park, carrying a herpes virus that is deadly to humans, could double in the next few years.

The troop of rhesus macaques were brought to Central Florida in the 1930s as part of a long-since closed attraction in the park. They were placed on a small island, but the monkeys didn’t stay there. There have been monkey sightings all over Central Florida, including one caught on camera in 2015 when students spotted a rhesus macaque running around on the roof of their school in The Villages. In 2017, cellphone video recorded aggressive monkeys taking over a park pavilion and going after people. The monkeys carry a herpes virus that is deadly to humans and can be spread through a bite or scratch.

“People should never approach these animals,” said University of Florida professor Steve Johnson, who was part of a team that spent years studying the monkeys. “People shouldn’t feed them. It’s not legal to feed them anymore.”

Researchers estimate the monkey population in Silver Springs is around 200,000. “By the year 2022, there are probably going to be around 400,000 animals,” Johnson said.

What was the RLM thinking when they not only wanted to make a strategic bomber, but make it an dive glidebomber so it needs to be twin engined because drag except we don't have any engines powerful enough so let's put two DB601s in each nacelle sharing a single propeller through an autistically complicated gearbox while negating any potential advantages regarding engine redundancy on top of creating considerable difficulties in engine cooling.

Scenario: Peak oil leads to old tactics in war?

Potentially bullshit/autistic scenario:

>Peak oil has occurred, daily life has reverted back to localized communities and localized production.

>Few large cities/settlements remain

>Mass exoduses from former petro-states to the west results in conflict

>Shit has gone on for so long that modern weapons are either running out of ammunition, or being lost due to attrition (humor me on this one! Apply copious amounts of bullshitium). Black powder weapons are now being used.

>Personal communication devices and NODs no longer work due to lack of batteries or the ability to charge them (not sure if this is accurate or not…)

How does Strelok fight a war in this scenario? I have heard some on craptube say that "armies would revert back to mass formations and lines of battle" but that seems idiotic and suicidal. Fire and maneuver with muzzle loaders or bolt action rifles with black powder loads might also be problematic.

And what would be the most advanced weapon that could use black powder? Rifled muskets? Bolt action rifles? I personally suspect that semi/full-autos are out of the question - the fouling from the black powder would foul up the action. You might get a couple of shots off but then it would need to be cleaned.

Missouri lawmaker files bills requiring some residents to own AR-15s, handguns

Bill Would Require 'Every Resident' Aged 18-34 To Possess An AR-15

>A Republican lawmaker in Missouri wants to require adults in his state to purchase handguns and AR-15 rifles.

>Two bills introduced by state Rep. Andrew McDaniel would require residents to purchase firearms while providing $1 million in tax credits on a first-come, first-served basis to residents who fall under the law.

>The first bill, the McDaniel Second Amendment Act, would require Missouri residents aged 21 or older to purchase a handgun. It also would allot up to $1 million per year in tax credits for residents who purchased weapons to comply with the law. The bill was filed in late February.

>The second bill, the McDaniel Militia Act, was filed days after the handgun bill and would require Missouri residents aged 18 to 35 to purchase an AR-15. It also would provide a tax credit of up to $1 million per year to incentivize the purchase of weapons.

>While the bills do not specify any penalties for adults who refuse to comply with the provisions, both stipulate that the Missouri Department of Revenue can "promulgate rules to implement the provisions of this section." The bills would sunset in six years if not extended by the state legislature.

>They would not apply to felons or residents otherwise prohibited from owning firearms.

>Both bills have received two readings in the Missouri House but have no hearings or further action scheduled so far, according to the state House's website.

/k/ Spook Digging Thread: Northern Nevada Edition

Archive of previous thread- Anon's uncle provided a bunch of info, very well worth reviewing.

https://archive.fo/6A38N

There are three stories from Northern Nevada, two within rather close proximity of one another. I've done some digging and I think I've narrowed it down quite a bit.

Based on the description, we should be able to find a few abandoned mine shafts on the eastern side of the Ruby mountains.

>Per one UNR source, there should be two abandoned shafts in the vicinity of, both for tungsten.

>Cross-referencing that against their database for documents involving tungsten mines/claims in Elko county produced quite a few results.

>One definite tungsten mine location is by Battle Creek. The Battle Creek location is ~20 miles south of where we were looking, but it does have the crook in the road as described E Zed. The trees are there as described, but I can't see a structure or a giant rock. The topography isn't an exact match either.

>A website that tracks mining claims, places 4 potential entrances within a few hundred yards, but not at the particular location that E Zed indicated.

> There is also a second hook in the road on the other side, but it doesn't exactly match the description either.

If OP wasn't 100% accurate in his recollection, I would argue this would be a good place to start. The Northern location has proved much harder to locate, which will be addressed in the next post.

/k/ cryptids general

/k/ what’s the best way to hunt down the four types of Bigfoot’s we know of so far?

Type 1 bigfoot, A.K.A. The Patty-type.

This is the classic Sasquatch. It looks like a cross between a human and a Mountain gorilla. (mountain gorilla) It has a large, powerful build a thick, broad chest, black hair, and gray skin. Other hair colors reported are brown, auburn, cinnamon, and occasionally white. The head, though massive, has been described as relatively small for the body. Type 1s sometimes develop a sagittal crest which can look like a person wearing a hoodie. They have a conspicuous brow ridge with a receding forehead, giving the eyes a deep-set look. The eyes are hard to see, but have been reported to be proportionately further apart than a human's eyes. Type 1s have a flat face with prominent cheekbones and a square jaw. The mouth region is only slightly protuberant. The nose is near human in shape, though "pug" or flat, sometimes with forward directed nostrils. The height average for the sampled population is 7’ 10, however, alpha males have been reported at 9' and larger. The average Type 1 is estimated to weigh between 500-800 pounds.

type 2 the more ape-like than the Type 1s.

They're reported in many areas of North America, but especially in the South. Type 2s have a bestial man-like build and large eyes with a large pupil dilation for night vision. The hair is most often reported as black, but Auburn, orange, and cinnamon have been reported. A bit smaller than the Type 1s, the Average height is around 7 feet. Type 2s tend to be very territorial and can be aggressive. They seem to kill a lot of livestock, especially the smaller varieties such as goats and chickens. Type 2s leave human-like footprints but can seem very much like known primates, especially chimps, orangutans and Bili apes

Type 3 something like a mandrill/human mix.

They look similar to a bigfoot but more "savage" or primal. Descriptions of the face vary, but the most reports describe a large, dog/bear/baboon-faced, bipedal mammal. Type 3s can be extremely tall (10' report - 15' report) with oversized heads that look more monster-like than ape-like. They tend to live up in the mountains but will come down for food. The fur is typically dark, or deep brown. One witness reported seeing a Type 3 wearing animal pelts over their fur (hear report.) They may eat humans, but reports of man-eating are rare and often based on very old legends. Type 3s tend to incite reports of paranormal characteristics, like having glowing red eyes, or being bulletproof at close range. Check this out: Dogman Encounters Episode 85, an eyewitness (ex-military) goes looking for a bipedal canid, but finds a Type 3, it's a very cool account. "Type 3" is a very recent classification, traditionally these types were called Kukwes, or Gugwes, a kind of man-eating ogre from Mi'kmaq Indian folklore. Check out this interview with Brian "Duke" Sullivan on Sasquatch Chronicles.

Type 4 reports often come from the North/North East.

They have been referred to as Early Man Bigfoot and the American Almas. They are the most human-looking of the hairy bipedal humanoids possessing traits of archaic/prehistoric man. They're typically a bit leaner than the Type 1s, but are still large, and well-muscled. A hairy Homo Heidelbergensis (link) is a decent model for the Type 4. They have less facial hair than the other types. The crown of the head can have thinning hair, or even be bald on top. Some eyewitnesses have reported beards and moustaches ranging from just noticeable to fully grown. Type 4s have round (not conical) heads. Their noses are hooded. The mouth is wider than what we would consider normal. The teeth are square and human-looking. The skin color is pasty gray or black with a leathery appearance. Some people think these are hybrids, part human, part novel primate. They may be, but all members of the genus Homo developed and used tools. There are no reports of Type 4s using tools of any kind. If they are human — even pre-modern — why would they stop creating and using tools?

This paper by Aaron Mills, Gerald Mills, M. N. Townsend is an analysis of tooth marks found on piles of bones in the Mt. St. Helens area. They make an excellent case for the existence of an undiscovered extant Hominin. "The totality of the evidence analysis very conclusively proves that a new “Hominin” species with an estimated height of over 8’8” is currently living and feeding upon various ungulate (Cervidae) species in the immediate vicinity of Mount St. Helen’s."

Is there nowhere free left?

I have a more extreme definition of free, usually leaning toward near lawlessness. It pains me to say that in cursory and deep searches alike, there appears to be nowhere in the world where guns are wholly permitted. I had thought maybe mexico for all you hear of it might be less restrictive, but on the surface it seems to be moreso. Perhaps its unenforcable, but if you should ever piss off the federale it could happen.

Pakistan in January this year banned automatics, it was the only country I knew of that allowed them. Even in the middle east there's permits required or hoops to jump through.

Is there no place where one can have whatever they want, walk with it freely and not be bothered? How long until every country and everywhere to run has a permit system? How long until America, which only through its deteriorating constitution and state decentralization has resisted, will have a registry and Real IDs?

Am I looking in the wrong places? Do I not understand? I don't want to be an ear-tagged cow or slave. I don't want to capitulate to and negotiate with people wielding unearned badges. I want to be free, and to accept the consequences to my safety of lacking a fence and a collar, not left with a delusional mural of permits and 'rights' to cover it up.

Homeowner removes kebab wholesale

https://www.theepochtimes.com/texas-homeowner-shoots-5-men-during-home-invasion-police_2773876.html

Five men tried breaking into a house in Texas just before 1 a.m. on Jan. 20, but were shot by the homeowner.

Three of the men were shot dead, with one of the deceased being left in front of the house.

One wounded man fled on foot while the other three left in a vehicle. The car crashed into a pole and a man was later found dead inside. Another occupant fled on foot after the crash and later died.

The two suspects who survived were taken to a hospital.

A neighbor told KPRC that a shootout happened after two men with large guns entered the house and the others pulled up and prepared to go inside.

Police officers described several dozen shell casings in and around the house as they began their investigation.

Another neighbor told KHOU that he was on his porch with his baby when he saw the two men show up with large rifles. The neighbor went inside his house to take cover.

He said that the homeowner is known in the neighborhood as “Flaco.”

A group of women who were crying showed up near the house where the shooting happened and said they are related to the men who were shot. They declined to provide further details.

Officials told KTRK that the homeowner shot the men in self-defense using a fully-loaded AK-47, an assault rifle.

The 20-year-old homeowner said that the men, wearing ski masks, approached his house and busted inside, demanding cash, forcing him to defend himself.

A witness said that he saw two men in front of the home lying on the ground. “I heard around five or six gunshots. I’m pretty sure there were more before that,” he said.

H.R.8 - Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019

Need Assistance

What does /k/ make of this?

——————————————–

H. R. 8

AN ACT

To require a background check for every firearm sale.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019”.

SEC. 2. Purpose.

The purpose of this Act is to utilize the current background checks process in the United States to ensure individuals prohibited from gun possession are not able to obtain firearms.

SEC. 3. Firearms transfers.

Section 922 of title 18, United States Code, is amended—

(1) by striking subsection (s);

(2) by redesignating subsection (t) as subsection (s); and

(3) by inserting after subsection (s), as redesignated, the following:

“(B) Upon taking possession of a firearm under subparagraph (A), a licensee shall comply with all requirements of this chapter as if the licensee were transferring the firearm from the inventory of the licensee to the unlicensed transferee.

“(C) If a transfer of a firearm described in subparagraph (A) will not be completed for any reason after a licensee takes possession of the firearm (including because the transfer of the firearm to, or receipt of the firearm by, the transferee would violate this chapter), the return of the firearm to the transferor by the licensee shall not constitute the transfer of a firearm for purposes of this chapter.

“(D) a temporary transfer that is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm, including harm to self, family, household members, or others, if the possession by the transferee lasts only as long as immediately necessary to prevent the imminent death or great bodily harm, including the harm of domestic violence, dating partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and domestic abuse;

“(E) a transfer that is approved by the Attorney General under section 5812 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986; or

“(iii) while in the presence of the transferor.

“(3) (A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the Attorney General may implement this subsection with regulations.

Ear protection

I decided to shoot today without ear protection to see what it was like. I figured that I wouldn't have time to put it on in a defensive shooting. It was a subcompact 9mm, 115g JHP. It was outside. I picked a place surrounded by ground so that the noise would be reflected up. The second I pulled the trigger, I knew that I had made a mistake. My hearing got muffled and I heard a loud beeping noise. My hearing came back within minutes but the beeping noise is still there after around 6 hours. It gradually got quieter and it's barely audible now. The beeping noise is only in my right ear, probably because I shot right handed. It didn't seem loud when I shot it. Maybe that's "auditory exclusion". I took some rounds out of my mag and put them in my ears, making sure they were tight. I shot a few more rounds that way. No problem there. I'd recommend keeping some kind of ear pro as part of your EDC.

This experience has made me reconsider my setup. In a defensive shooting, it's likely that several rounds will be fired indoors. I'm considering switching to a quieter caliber or changing to quieter ammo. Carrying a heavier bullet might help. It's impractical to EDC with a can but it's worth looking into for home defense. Ear pro on your nightstand too. If you have a rifle, switching to 300 Blackout might be a good idea. If you have a SBR or a powerful snub nose, reconsider.

This is unrelated but I'll throw it in. Make sure you can take your spare mag out of its holder. I tried to take mine out when I was shooting. I pulled as hard as I could, even took it out of my belt and pulled with both hands, but I couldn't get it out. This was a surprise because I could pull it out just fine a few days ago at the range. I must have put it in too hard. Don't let this happen to you in a fight.

Things to make him want to go home

A soldier isn't intimidated by death, he is however intidimidated by suffering. A soldier would be much more willing and effective if he knows his suffering will not be too bad. However, a soldier will be much less enthusiastic if he knows the enemy is armed with thermobarics that will melt his flesh and other equipment that will bring him great suffering and maim him instead of killing him.

Therefore this thread, to come with ideas that would be the most scaring and intimidating to a soldier.

I was thinking about a S-mine kind of design, but totally made out of plastic or some kind of hard polymer and using graphite/silicon as a conductor, so that the enemy cannot use a metal detector to get rid of it.

Semi-Only vs Select fire

Ameritards such as myself have never really had access to fullauto or selct fire weaponry. Even before the Hughes amendment, NFA regulation of auto-gats made them both expensive, and easily traceable.

My question is, if you pitted to group against each other, assuming both has the same relative experience and capabilities, one group semi-only (or maybe with echo triggers and cranks), and another with access to full auto weapons, how much of an advantage do the full-auto guys have, if any in your opinions?

Judge Rules Men-Only Military Draft Unconstitutional

A federal judge has ruled that a men-only draft is unconstitutional, but he stopped short of ordering the Selective Service System to register women for military service.

>The Houston judge sided with a San Diego men's advocacy group that challenged the government's practice of having only men sign up for the draft, citing sex discrimination in violation of the Fifth Amendment's equal protection clause. "This case balances on the tension between the constitutionally enshrined power of Congress to raise armies and the constitutional mandate that no person be denied the equal protection of the law," wrote U.S. District Judge Gray Miller of the Southern District of Texas.

>The lawsuit was filed in 2013 against the Selective Service System by Texas resident James Lesmeister, who later added San Diego resident Anthony Davis and the San Diego-based National Coalition for Men as additional plaintiffs. The two men had standing to sue the government because they were within the age range of 18 to 26 in which men in the United States are required to register with Selective Service.

>Coalition attorney Marc Angelucci said in a statement on Saturday that he is pleased with the court decision. "Forcing only males to register is an aspect of socially institutionalized male disposability and helps reinforce the stereotypes that support discrimination against men in other areas" such as divorce, child custody and domestic violence services, Angelucci said. "Women are now allowed in combat, so this decision is long overdue," he added. "After decades of sex discrimination against men in the Selective Service, the courts have finally found it unconstitutional to force only men to register."

>The government asked the judge to dismiss the suit or stay a decision until a national commission studying the issue of women's draft registration reaches a recommendation. The judge noted that could take years, and even then Congress isn't required to follow the commission's findings. "Congress has been debating the male-only registration requirement since at least 1980," Miller wrote.

>The government pointed to a 1981 U.S. Supreme Court decision that the Military Selective Service Act was constitutional as written, to exclude women, because women restricted from combat were not offered similar opportunities that men had. Miller found that reasoning no longer applicable, since the Department of Defense lifted all gender-based restrictions on military service – including combat roles – in 2015.

>The judge likewise disagreed with the government's position that drafting women would be an administrative burden and that far more women than men will be found physically unfit for service after being drafted. Congress has expressed few concerns about female physical ability, but did focus more on societal consequences of drafting young mothers to go off to war, Miller said. "If there was ever a time to discuss 'the place of women in the Armed Services,' that time has passed," Miller concluded.

Challenge to Trump administration's bump-fire stocks ban rejected

>A federal judge rejected a challenge to the Trump administration's ban on bump-fire stocks Monday.

>United States District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich ruled against the plaintiffs in two consolidated federal lawsuits challenging a nationwide ban on the devices and asking for an injunction to prevent the ban from going forward and being enforced.

>The ATF had previously concluded bump-fire stocks were merely a gun accessory or firearm part, not subject to federal regulation. They were tightly regulated, but legal.

>Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker signed a new federal regulation in December that concluded that bump-fire stocks fall within the prohibition on machine guns, and therefore are illegal under federal law.

>In their complaint, the plaintiffs – Damien Guedes, the Firearms Policy Coalition, David Codrea and their co-plaintiffs – argued that the ATF violated procedural requirements, and that Whitaker did not, at the time, have the authority to set forth a ban.

>Following Monday's ruling, the plaintiffs issued a statement saying that have filed a notice of appeal and will continue to challenge the ban.

>"We are disappointed but unsurprised by the Court's ruling tonight denying a temporary injunction to protect Americans from an unlawful and unconstitutional regulation," they said in a joint statement.

I'm not american, but I want to understand how do leftists find arguments to defend gun restrictions or banning. I don't recall a country banning guns and having positive results unless it was one of the most homogeneously educated countries in the world. Every country that wasn't only resulted in higher levels of gun homicide and increasing crime and violence. So how would taking away an important part of the culture and core of a country that always had freedom as its main concern going to help anything? I don't get it.

About public shootings: isn't it the same as a car accident? It wouldn't work to take away everyone's car or to make cars only go up to 30mph. The only reliable way os to expect people to be white and not drive drunk or high, no? Maybe women could stop being manipulative bitches and kids could stop being mean.

Also, how's a restriction even going to work? You take away people's freedom and some people will stop shooting others? Would limiting a football player's time to play in a week going to solve broken legs because of the sport?

I don't understand a lot of it, and maybe I'm thinking the wrong way, but it doesn't make sense.
