Modern military propaganda

Like it says on the tin, post high quality modern military propaganda. Starting with this kino piece right here. Even though I know it's propaganda it still has an effect on me. Unlike other branches of government, the military needs more zogbots to make sure it doesn't get weak and is easily overthrown. That's why it's all such high quality stuff their putting out.

They didn't put amateurs on this.

Since "dogfighting" is dead, air to air missiles easily match-up fighters' turn radius and bigger is better since you can stuff more high-tec avionics countermeasures and trinkets, why don't fighter-developers orientate towards heavy class interceptors like the past Tu-28 and the proposed Tu-160P and B-1R for front line duty and modified airliners/strategic airlifters as missile-trucks for air-policing?

Imagine a B 747-8 with a practically limitless supply of AMRAAMs, Meteors and chaff/flares, yuge jammers self-defense packages of Air Force One and strategic bombers, laser active point-defense against at least heat-seeker missiles, an interception radar for each frequency and a FLIR on every side of the airframe, the ability to stay on air for half a day, as well as secondary AWACS, EW and tanker capabilities for support of conventional fighters escorts when traditional air-combat warranted. It would probably be also be far more cost-effective than trying to miniaturize all these features for fighter-sized aircraft as the current trend is.

Why is it not happening?

The 2nd Amendment

CUCUTA, Venezuela/Colombia border – As Venezuela continues to crumble under the socialist dictatorship of President Nicolas Maduro, some are expressing words of warning – and resentment – against a six-year-old gun control bill that stripped citizens of their weapons.

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Under the direction of then-President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan National Assembly in 2012 enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” The law took effect in 2013, with only minimal pushback from some pro-democracy opposition figures, banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all - except government entities.

Chavez initially ran a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures - more than 12,500 – were by force.

In 2014, with Nicolás Maduro at the helm following Chavez’s death but carrying through his socialist “Chavista” policies, the government invested more than $47 million enforcing the gun ban – which has since included grandiose displays of public weapons demolitions in the town square.

A former gun store owner inside Venezuela – who told Fox News he has now been relegated to only selling fishing supplies since the ban – said he can’t sell any type of weaponry - even a slingshot - and underscored that even BB ammunition and airsoft guns are only issued to police and military officers.

The punishment for illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.

Prior to the 2012 reform, there were only around eight gun stores in the entire country. And the process of obtaining a legal permit to own and carry was plagued by long wait lines, high costs and bribery “to make the process swifter” at the one department allowed to issue licenses, which operated under the umbrella of the Ministry of Defense.

“Venezuelans didn’t care enough about it. The idea of having the means to protect your home was seen as only needed out in the fields. People never would have believed they needed to defend themselves against the government,” Vanegas explained. “Venezuelans evolved to always hope that our government would be non-tyrannical, non-violator of human rights, and would always have a good enough control of criminality.”

He said it didn’t take long for such a wide-eyed public perception to fall apart. “If guns had been a stronger part of our culture, if there had been a sense of duty for one to protect their individual rights, and as a show of force against a government power – and had legal carry been a common thing – it would have made a huge difference,” he lamented.

Since April 2017, almost 200 pro-democracy protesters in Venezuela – armed mostly with stones – were shot dead by government forces in brutal retaliation to their call to end the oppressive socialist regime. The once oil-wealthy nation has continued its downward spiral into financial ruin, extreme violence, and mass human rights violations. An estimated three million Venezuelans have been forced to flee since 2015.

“Venezuela shows the deadly peril when citizens are deprived of the means of resisting the depredations of a criminal government,” said David Kopel, a policy analyst, and research director at the Independence Institute and adjunct professor of Advanced Constitutional Law at Denver University. “The Venezuelan rulers – like their Cuban masters – apparently viewed citizen possession of arms as a potential danger to a permanent communist monopoly of power.”

Although the bill was sold to the population as a hardline effort to improve security, and sharply reduce crime, many now point to Venezuela as a case study for how gun prohibition can actually produce the opposite effect.

A staggering number of American troops are fat and tired, report says

>A 2018 RAND report on health promotion and disease prevention has painted a grim picture of the military’s physical fitness and sleep standards.

>The study, featuring roughly 18,000 randomly selected participants across each of the service branches, showed that almost 66 percent of service members are considered to be either overweight or obese, based on the military’s use of body mass index as a measuring standard.

>While the number of overweight service members is a cause for concern, it correlates with the obesity epidemic plaguing the United States, where, as of 2015, one in three young adults are considered too fat to enlist, creating a difficult environment for recruiters to find suitable candidates for military service.

>Broken down by service, the 2018 report lists the Army as the branch accounting for the highest percentage of overweight troops, with 69.4 percent of soldiers falling under this category. The Army was followed by the Coast Guard (67.8 percent), Navy (64.6 percent), Air Force (63.1 percent) and Marine Corps (60.9 percent).

>Another glaring area of concern highlighted in the study was the inability of service members to get adequate sleep. Nearly 9 percent of military personnel reported taking sleeping medications either “daily” or “almost daily.” The Army reported the highest rate of sleep concerns, with 10.6 percent of soldiers routinely consuming sleeping aides. Marines (9.9 percent), airmen (7.5 percent) and sailors (6 percent) rounded out the troubling category.

>In terms of problematic sleeping patterns, 59.4 percent of soldiers reported getting less sleep than needed, and 33.2 percent answered that the lack of sleep contributed to being regularly bothered by an energy deficiency. Personnel from the other services, especially the Navy and Marine Corps, reported experiencing the aforementioned sleep issues at a similar rate.

>An extensive 2017 review of inpatient and outpatient records, dating from 2005 to 2014, for active-duty military personnel found that both insomnia and sleep apnea are on the rise, according the Journal of Sleep Research. “Sleep disorders are a serious problem that interferes with the ability of soldiers to do their jobs effectively,” Harris Lieberman, study author and military nutrition specialist at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts, told Reuters.

>Similar sleep concerns in the Navy’s surface fleet were heavily scrutinized this year in the wake of the service’s fatal collisions involving the destroyers Fitzgerald and John S. McCain. In response to sailor reports of sleep deprivation due to the Navy’s furious operational tempo, top brass implemented a policy featuring overhauled watch schedules that better align with sailors' circadian rhythms, a move designed to allow for improved rest periods.

>The RAND report’s Health Related Behaviors Survey has been issued periodically for 30 years by the Department of Defense in an effort to best gauge the condition of the country’s fighting force. Survey items traditionally examined include health promotion and disease prevention, substance use, mental and physical health, sexual behaviors and deployment experiences.

590M(agazine) Shockwave - Best Modern Shotgun Ever?

> Reliability of a pump

> 20 round magazine available

> That's right, 20 slugs, fast as you can pump 'em, and more and more, as fast as you can change mags

> SBR length without it being an SBR

< lose tactical reloads (like tossing out a birdshot shell & slipping in a slug)

< can't use short shells

< if you want to use it prone, you'll have to shoot right-handed, and you'll probably need 2 mods (add a top grip to the slide, and add some kind of sight to the right side & a 45 degre angle (keep that slim, so it doesn't impair tactical right-hand turns around corners))

< retarded bonus: a tube for a survival kit, papers, cigarettes, dragon dildos, or, imagine it, a few extra rounds - that will require manual loading.

I think perfection is here at last. Bonus, the barrels are easy to change, so if you need a longer barrel, say for hunting, it's trivial.

Important mod:

> Folding "brace" (stock) & pistol grip

< brace & grip are overpriced right now (they're for the original shockwave, but obviously work on the new one)

Don't forget: Buy the 20 round mags!

Also, a lot of people are porting the barrel. Not a necessity.

Rural versus Urban Guerrilla Warfare

In the event that guerrilla warfare were to break out in western countries, what do you think would happen?

I personally think it would start in the cities (more people live there), lead to a destabilization of the security situation in the country in question, and that the urban guerrillas would eventually support guerrillas in what few rural areas are left.

While I think the 'classic' three-phase Maoist model of guerrilla warfare has its merits (this is NOT an endorsement of communism), I think it be more fragmented with competing guerrilla forces each trying to be the one true resistance.

Camo

I took 233 images of north american forests from bing images which included some forests not from north america due to inaccuracy of the search and first removed all the enhanced images, which looked like photoshop or professional work. I only kept the amateur looking photos. I then removed all blue and black color from the sky, which was mostly background daytime or nighttime color.

The remaining images I blended into a single image using unfocus tools, and after hours of rendering and extra blending I achieved a near total mix as you see here.

This image is what came out, it's basically olive drab, but notice how dark it is even after removing all the black from the night sky. Normal olive drab is very light, whereas this is much darker. This is a summer color by the way, no snow. Anyway since there a shitload of varieties of green in nature (every plant has its own) green is really difficult to match so I rejected it to get at the underlying color which is easier and more stable across forests. This is more or less the ultimate uniform background color, BURGANDY. Laughed my ass off.

Anyway post your own camo stories.

Belgium picks Lockheed's F-35 over Eurofighter on price

>Belgium said on Thursday it had chosen Lockheed Martin’s (LMT.N) F-35 stealth jets over the Eurofighter Typhoon to replace its aging F-16s in a 4 billion euro ($4.55 billion) deal, saying the decision came down to price.

>After months of deliberation, the decision to buy 34 of the planes was announced at a government news conference. Belgium joins a list of other European NATO allies, including Britain, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey, to take the American-made plane, which is also set to be the U.S. military’s main fighter aircraft for decades to come. “We have landed! This government is investing heavily in defense. With the purchase of F-35A fighter planes … we ensure your safety and that of our military,” Belgian Defence Minister Steven Vandeput said on Twitter during the news conference. “The offer from the Americans was the best in all our seven evaluation criteria,” he later told reporters.

>CHEAPER THAN PROJECTED

>Prime Minister Charles Michel’s government said despite a strong desire to support European allies, the F-35 was cheaper for Belgium over the long term, coming in 600 million euros ($684 million) under what the government budgeted for.

>The total price of the deal, including the jets, pilot training, hangars and upkeep until 2030 was worth 4 billion euros, Vandeput said, compared with the original budget of 4.6 billion euros. Over the 40-year life of the aircraft, the deal will cost Belgium 12.4 billion euros, rather than the 15 billion euros first projected, he said.

>Belgium looks to have benefited from Lockheed Martin’s strategy to reduce the cost of the jets as production has increased. U.S. President Donald Trump and other U.S. officials have criticized the F-35 program for delays and cost overruns. Each plane is likely to cost Belgium around 76 million euros, slightly less than the amount paid by the Netherlands and Italy, according to Belgian newspaper Le Soir, citing a closed-door briefing by Belgian air force personnel to lawmakers on Wednesday, when the final decision was taken.

>Michel also defended the decision to choose a U.S. company over European neighbors as a way to balance loyalties to the American-led NATO alliance and defense spending in Europe. “We are choosing cooperation with NATO and for European defense,” Michel told the news conference. He said money saved on the F-35 would be used for other defense projects.

>With defense spending just under 0.9 percent of economic output on defense in 2017, Belgium is one of the worst performers in trying to meet a NATO target of 2 percent by 2024, which Trump says is already too low and should be at least 3 percent.

That Time you Bought the Wrong Gun

Anybody here ever buy the wrong gun?

this was my first purchase and I couldn't tell by just holding them.

I bought the CZ-sp01 Phantom mistaking it for the CZ-sp01 Tactical.

2 pretty different pistols since I wanted the tactical because I've heard how well it mitigates recoil. The Phantom was made to be an extremely light sidearm so doesn't mitigate recoil as well and has a much smaller slide which can be annoying. Didn't realize I bought the wrong one until a month later when I re-watched a video that had the tactical.

Swords, how to use them

We all know that if you don't know what you're doing, with firearms, you're no operator. There are lots of videos available that explain, in detail, procedures for operating, at least to the Army level (probably not quite to a green beret or other elite level).

But swords? Youtube's full of people standing and talking, telling you what losers other people are for thinking the wrong thing about swords. Occasionally, videos will feature flourishes or exchanges, which are not presented systematically. Or somebody will tease basic stances, without offering a system of practice. This is the most useful, but they imply there's much more to be had, and you totally have to move to their yuppy-infested hellhole just to come learn.

Anybody got legit good content on how to master the sword?

Yes, I am aware of the treatises, however, they aren't in digested form, and the drawings are horrifically bad. They're basically MS paint drawings from the middle ages.

Should the weapon(s) use the same cartridge(s) as front line troops?

Is the entire concept stupid as all troops should either get a service rifle or a service pistol?

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.

US Marines Join Collision Game

Two rescued, five missing after ‘mishap’ involving U.S. Marine tanker and fighter jet off Kochi

http://archive.is/W0XJh

by Jesse Johnson

Staff Writer

Dec 6, 2018

>Two U.S. Marine aircraft crashed early Thursday during a refueling drill, leaving five crew members missing after two were rescued off the coast of Kochi Prefecture later in the day.

>A KC-130 air-refueling tanker and an F/A-18 fighter jet were involved in what the military termed a “mishap” in the early morning hours. One crew member was rescued later in the morning by the Maritime Self Defense Force and sent to a hospital, while another was rescued later in the day, according to the Japanese Defense Ministry. The Marine Corps said the second marine had been transported to a local hospital. One of the two was a crew member of the F/A-18.

>The F/A-18 had two crew members while five were aboard the KC-130.

>“Search and rescue operations continue for U.S. Marine Corps aircraft that were involved in a mishap … off of the coast of Japan around 2:00 a.m.,” the Marine Corps said in a statement.

>Tokyo said the crash had occurred around 100 km off Cape Muroto in Kochi Prefecture.

>The statement said the aircraft involved had taken off from U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Yamaguchi Prefecture, and had been “conducting regularly scheduled training.” The Iwakuni base is home to the sole forward-deployed marine squadron of F-35 stealth fighter jets.

>The Marine Corps said the cause of the accident was under investigation, but the difficult refueling maneuver would have been complicated by a lack of sunlight and any difficult weather conditions at the time.

>During the refueling, the smaller fighter approaches from the rear of the KC-130, which has a fuel line trailing behind. An extendable nozzle is then “plugged in” to allow fuel to flow.

>After learning of the crash, Japanese search and rescue aircraft “immediately responded to aid in recovery,” the Marine Corps said. The U.S. military’s III Marine Expeditionary Force, headquartered in Okinawa Prefecture, expressed gratitude to the MSDF for the help.

>“Extremely thankful and grateful for our Japanese Self Defense Force partners and their help in the search and recovery efforts,” the III Marine Expeditionary Force’s public affairs section wrote on its official Twitter account.

>Accidents involving U.S. military aircraft have become a sensitive topic in Japan in recent years after a spate of crashes — especially in Okinawa Prefecture, which is home to the bulk of U.S. military facilities in the country.

>Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya told a televised news conference that while Japan is concerned, it was now focusing on helping find the missing marines.

>“The incident is regrettable, but our focus at the moment is on search and rescue,” Iwaya told a news conference. “Japan will respond appropriately once the details of the incident are uncovered.”

>In June, a U.S. Air Force F-15 fighter jet crashed in waters off Okinawa Prefecture during a routine training mission. The pilot successfully ejected and was safely recovered by an Air Self-Defense Force search and rescue team.

>In November last year, a U.S. C-2 cargo plane carrying 11 passengers and supplies from the base at Iwakuni to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan crashed during an annual bilateral maritime field-training exercise with the MSDF. Eight people were rescued and three died in the accident.

Personally, I'm pumped for when the USAF and USN have a joint collision game. B52s hitting Carriers, who wins?

(((Gun Control))) Sentiments in Commiefornia and Other Western Nations

I made this thread in /pol/ already but this is somewhat /k/-related in a way, too. I've made some few edits, so here it is:

Anti-fun (((US media))) kikery is seeping everywhere in the West and the foreign NPC's are buying it.

This has been getting on my nerves lately, and I hate these types of people the most. Those Silicon Valley "White guilt-ridden" SOYED™ cuckolds who have over 9000+ genders and love shoving up over 9000+ "POC" cocks up their gaping bungholes. Along with their unbridled sheep mentality and the fact that they get a kick off of one of the worst types of (((materialist capitalism))) aka Hymiewood blockbusters, and not to mention their brazen support for (((MSM))) outlets, "free press journalist" websites, and just all out degeneracy (homosexuality, feminism, open borders, race mixing, refugees welcome, trannyism, etc.). I might as well say Mexico can have Commiefornia all to themselves at this point.

It differs went it comes to the opinions of Western European, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealander NPC's. They'd make jokes and assumptions that arming yourself is a "backwards US-centric obsession", often times equating it to America's obesity problem. Let me clarify a little bit of something here, calling Americans fat is universally accepted, but these NPC's get the worst ideas from it, as they would imply that being armed is also "terrible, racist, bigoted, and backwards". They're unknowingly selling their souls to Jewry. In a way, these European, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealander NPC's are unknowingly supporting (((AIPAC))) narratives, one of the world's leading organizations of Palestininian murder. So despite some of these said normalfags being against Israel and Zionism (only because they think they are "White racist colonialists" oppressing brown Palestininians), they still support some of their ideas.

They don't know the main cause of gun violence in America, because at the same time, to them, it's "racist" to notify people that most gun crimes in America are done by niggers, spics and other shitskins. And it gets even higher when it comes to non-gun violence. Countries like Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand still don't have enough Third World immigrants, illegal and legal, to see a significant increase on their crime rates, so it makes them think (((gun control))) is what made crime go down.

But this has been changing for quote some time now, if (((they))) have finally made the US virtually less Whiter than 100 years ago, they will do the same with these other countries. If they keep up with the "jokes" of arming oneself being "backwards and an American obsession", the results will not be pretty in the end. So the question here is, how can /pol/ redpill them without rustling their jimmies? Also I would really love some insight from European, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealander anon's ITT

to talk about your current state on this touchy subject (for your NPC's, that is). So far I know that when it comes to European NPC's supporting (((gun control))), it's usually the Brits. When it's Canadians, it's the ones living in major cities liek Toronto and Montreal. When it's Australians, it's the ones living in Melbourne or Canberra. I don't know much about the New Zealander ones, but I suspect they follow the same trend as everyone else.

Also on a last note, commies surprisingly support gun rights (but not for Whitey, of course), it's sort of interesting (not that I think they are "baste af fam!!!" or anything, just some simple references):

https://www.marxists.org/history/etol/newspape/socialistvoice/guncontrol.html

https://www.non-compete.com/what-do-modern-communists-think-about-gun-control/

Second to last one is just plain retarded and outlandish, and I thought this faggot was an actual Marxist. I hope Brazilian leftists don't have this much mental gymnastics, but then again they are leftists. Would like to know from Brazilian anons as well.

Eyewear General

Well, Anons, I'm pretty fucking livid. Took a financial leap on some supposedly really good frames and lenses back in 2016, and they both broke down faster than anything I'd ever bought cheaply as a kid from Wal-Mart's optometry department. The soft rubbery coating on the nosepads and arms disintegrated first, which were replaced, and then the second set did the same thing. And now the very expensive ballistic-rated lenses have their coating failing, which will eventually spiderweb out from the annoying blur they currently are into a facade that will ruin the lenses completely. And the company I bought from have taken the 'your problem now' stance, in spite of having babied these things.

I'm allergic to metal and so have to have composite frames, but I don't know who the hell to trust with build quality or material composition. I live in Florida, so conditions are hot and humid even today, in late November, which may have contributed, but was unavoidable. What eyewear would you take if you had to bring a single pair into Vietnam for a couple years? What brands are good? Which are shit? Does anyone know what plastics are desirable and which are to be avoided? All of the above for lenses, too.

Image is what I bought, the RX-456. I actually really like how they look and fit, especially the wraparound; I can hang upside down and they won't budge. But I can't be buying new frames and lenses every couple of years.

Eyewear general, I guess. Nightvision/thermal/goggles discussions welcome, but try not to expand into mounted optics themselves.

Peaceful Resistance

With the bumpstock ban looming we are once again having our rights trampled upon with very little in the way of fighting back. Our enemies grow more bold and the most resistance we put up is an occasional phone call to a representative (if that) People that are supposedly on our side are obviously not. It's just us. Since no one actually wants to go dome politicians how should we fight back peacefully? We might as well start organizing something instead of just doing nothing. I think that there are several main points we should focus on

Mentally

-Combating the narrative that the media pushes (2A is antiquated, you don't need assault guns ect.)

-Combating the individuals that push said narrative i.e twitter "personalities", "comedians", celebrities, ect.

-Working to shift the issue to a bipartisan one instead of one that's "right wing"

-General information outreach to normies (90% of people I talk to think there is a law that rifles need to be registered nationally)

Physically

-Flooding the population with material so that it becomes impossible to regulate (defcad 2.0, black pipe shotgun flyers, ect.)

-Taking new people shooting (with an emphasis on demographics that are known to be antigun)

-Denying resources to companies that virtue signal (boycotts)

Spiritually

-Spreading the word on the human right to self defense and resistance to tyranny

Most importantly we need to get organized.

What do you guys think? How would we go about doing any of these? Do you have any better ideas?

Invasion of the USA

Let's say the United States is invaded, what would be protocol for armed citizen militias? Would the government let them regulate themselves? I'm just wondering. I've been watching YouTube videos all day of people shooting machine guns, and cannons. It made me stop and think. The citizens of the USA alone, probably have as much firepower, if not more, than most country's armed forces. I mean the citizens could make tanks and armored vehicles with an addition of a vintage/legal cannon or machine gun. They can buy all the ingredients for bombs at the store, not to mention simply gunpowder. Everyone drives a vehicle in the USA, with a majority driving trucks, there's millions of pieces of construction equipment that could be used to armor up for improvised tanks with an addition of a cannon or machine gun, millions of privately owned planes and helicopters, millions of privately owned machine guns and cannons (some vintage, but still usable), thousands of privately owned tanks and other military vehicles; and hundreds of millions of ordinary firearms. One man in Colorado owns enough vintage and modern military equipment to arm a whole regiment. So, with all that said, how would civilian militias work if the USA had foreign boots on their soil?

The international fallout of a second American civil war

In the very likely event of a second civil war occurring all across the continental US what events could likely transpire beyond the mainland's Coasts?

What would happen to the International Coalition in Syria+Iraq?

Would American bases in Europe get seized.com or would NATO cooperate if the local American commanders promised to fight against racism, transphobia and misogyny?

What would happen to all the Durkas in the middle east without fresh shipments of TOWs, let alone American troops to shoot at in Afghanistan?

Would the Nips side with the rebels, and would they try to invade Korea before the Norks do?

Would Hawaii secede?

Would Chinks try to start shit with Taiwan?

Would Australia try to seize US territories in Oceania?

Would Poos shit themselves?

Would Israel crash itself with no survivors via Samson option?

Would Putin try to remove the EU by force in the event he sides with the American rebels and the Brussels cabal does not?

Would Leafland grab Alaska through diplomatic means, proving that not killing your enemies makes you win?

Sorry if this is a bit much to ask but Civil war what-if scenarios on here mostly seem to concern potential habbenings inside the US, with the USN and external forces getting little attention outside of turning against the US gov and/or supplying rebels.

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.

Lets talk about the SAW competition!

In 1970s America the weapons that served well in Korea were suddenly believed obsolete because of the Vietnam war loss. As a result of this what did we do wrong panic, one thing that was thought is that the 5.56 M16 and the 7.62 M60 did not complement each other well, and that it was too logistically flawed to have two different cartridges at squad level. This was wrong, but not the topic of this thread.

In comes the SAW (squad automatic weapon) competition! This was a solely American competition in the 70s to produce a unitary cartridge that would replace both the 5.56 and the 7.62 with a single cartridge. After a grueling testing process, the bullet agreed on was the 6x45mm, which was slightly higher in energy than 5.56 at 2kJ instead of 1.8kJ, but had a much higher momentum which let it fly longer and be effective at similar ranges to a 7.62.

possible mechanisms of N2 weapons in Evangelion

i've been wondering for a while now what the N2 (non-nuclear) weapons in the Neon Genesis Evangelion series could possibly be.

by definition they can't be fission or fusion powered, yet their apparent explosive yield per kilogram is pretty much comparable to one of those so they likely aren't powered by chemical explosives either. i heard some theories that they could be anti-matter weapons, and while something like a hydrogen/anti-hydrogen would still technically be considered a nuclear weapon, using an electron/positron reaction wouldn't be.

this is also plausible for the technology level as seen in the show, as there is no mention of anti-matter propulsion/weaponry systems but the JSSDF is seen to be capable of producing massive amounts of positrons (even if they did use the entire electrical output of Japan to do so).

however, this is a somewhat unsatisfactory answer since no form of magnetic storage, particle accelerator, etc. can be seen on any of the N2 weapons.

Saddam Hussein memorial plaque appears on London bench

A Saddam Hussein memorial plaque that appeared on an east London bench has been removed. It read: "In Loving Memory of Saddam Hussein" and it is not clear who left it there or what their intention was. Wanstead resident Victoria Richards told the BBC it appeared on the bench on Sunday. Local residents saw it and "expressed their outrage" on a community Facebook page, she said. Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, born in April 1937, was hanged in 2006 for crimes against humanity. His rule was characterised by a mixture of brutality, megalomania and paranoia.

Victoria posted a picture of the plaque online. Thousands of people have retweeted it and hundreds of people have commented on it. "People have been very angry and upset, especially the Iraqi community. People have been saying it's a sick joke. "What was there before? Was it someone's family plaque?" she said. Victoria questioned the motive of whoever fixed the plaque on the bench: "Was it a prankster? What's the message? Was it a frivolous, dark thing to do?"

A Landmark Legal Shift Opens Pandora’s Box for DIY Guns

Five years ago, 25-year-old radical libertarian Cody Wilson stood on a remote central Texas gun range and pulled the trigger on the world’s first fully 3-D-printed gun. When, to his relief, his plastic invention fired a .380-caliber bullet into a berm of dirt without jamming or exploding in his hands, he drove back to Austin and uploaded the blueprints for the pistol to his website, Defcad.com.

He'd launched the site months earlier along with an anarchist video manifesto, declaring that gun control would never be the same in an era when anyone can download and print their own firearm with a few clicks. In the days after that first test-firing, his gun was downloaded more than 100,000 times. Wilson made the decision to go all in on the project, dropping out of law school at the University of Texas, as if to confirm his belief that technology supersedes law.

Unbubba-ing a Mauser

I'm trying to get my hands on an original stock and handguard for a "Serbian" Mauser Model 1924, but I've had no luck on all the major selling sites (gunboards, gunbroker, ebay, etc.) and local gun shops.

This is my first rifle, so I'm trying to spruce it up. Even a Yugo M47/47 stock will do (though it's hard to find one with the bands and hanguard included), but I'd really like to get an original pre-war one.

Any suggestions on where else to look?

Trump cancels WW1 memorial at US cemetery in France due to rain

>President Donald Trump could not attend a commemoration in France for U.S. soldiers and marines killed during World War One on Saturday because rain made it impossible to arrange transport, the White House said. The last minute cancellation prompted widespread criticism on social media and from some officials in Britain and the United States that Trump had "dishonored" U.S. servicemen.

>The president was scheduled to pay tribute at a ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, about 85 km (50 miles) east of Paris, with his wife Melania. But light steady rain and a low cloud ceiling prevented his helicopter from traveling to the site. "(Their attendance) has been canceled due to scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather," the White House said in a statement, adding that a delegation lead by Chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired general, went instead.

>The decision prompted a rash of criticism on Twitter, with Nicholas Soames, a British member of parliament who is a grandson of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill, saying that Trump was dishonoring U.S. servicemen. "They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn't even defy the weather to pay his respects to the Fallen," Soames wrote on Twitter.

>White House officials said the decision was taken due to the weather and cited security concerns in hastily arranging a motorcade. Similar concerns prevented Trump from reaching the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea a year ago when foggy weather prevented his helicopter from landing. Ben Rhodes, who served as deputy national security adviser for strategic communications under President Barack Obama, said the excuse about the inclement weather did not stand up. "I helped plan all of President Obama's trips for 8 years," he wrote on Twitter. "There is always a rain option. Always."

>Despite the light rain, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a moving ceremony in Compiegne, northeast of Paris, to mark the 100th anniversary of the signing of the World War One armistice. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attended his own ceremony to pay tribute to Canadian troops killed at Vimy Ridge, on the battlefields of northeastern France.

>Around 70 leaders, including Trump, are scheduled to gather at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Sunday morning to mark the commemoration of the centenary of the end of the war, when some 10 million soldiers were killed during four years of grinding conflict. It was not clear what Trump decided to do instead of attending the cemetery. The White House said he was at the residence of the U.S. ambassador in Paris. During that time he sent a tweet wishing a "Happy 243rd Birthday" to the U.S. Marine Corps.

>The president is scheduled to take part in a ceremony at the Suresnes American Cemetery to the west of Paris on Sunday afternoon, when he is expected to make formal remarks.

>Trauma surgeons have warned that Britain’s knife crime “epidemic” is putting the National Health Service (NHS) under strain, as figures revealed the number of incidents reached a record high of more than 40,000 last year.

>The Daily Telegraph reported the 40,147 knife offences recorded in England and Wales — the highest figure since records began in 2011 — marked a 57 per cent increase from the figure for 2014.

>Knife crime has risen for four consecutive years since 2014, when then Home Secretary Theresa May curbed the use of stop and search — a policing tactic officers insist saves lives but which is branded “racist” by campaigns that globalist financier George Soros’s international grantmaking organisation Open Society Foundations has bragged about funding.

>“It’s across our urban centres, not just London. It’s a disease we need to work closely together to try to control as best we can,” said Adam Brooks, a consultant surgeon based in Nottingham, where the audience heard his major trauma centre had treated as many young knife crime victims aged 15-25 in the past five months as it had in the whole of 2017.

FBI: "Neo-Nazi Militia Trained by US Military in Ukraine Now Training US White Supremacists

INB4 Jews want NATO to invade Ukraine to save Ukraine from Ukrainian Nazis and Russian aggression

>The training the U.S. provided to the Azov Battalion is coming back to roost in the U.S. as the National Socialist group is training and radicalizing U.S.-based groups with similar ideologies steeped in white pride and a belief in white nationalism.

According to a recent FBI indictment, several American white nationalists were allegedly radicalized by and received training from Ukraine’s National Socialist Azov Battalion, which receives funding from the current government of Ukraine as well as the U.S. government. The group has also received weapons from the Israeli government.

The indictment, filed in Los Angeles, California last month, asserts that four American members of the Rise Above Movement (RAM) — RAM co-founder Robert Rundo as well as Robert Boman, Tyler Laube and Aaron Eason — had “violently attacked and assaulted counter-protestors” at several white nationalist events throughout the U.S., including the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last year.

Court documents refer to RAM as a “white supremacy extremist group” while the group self-represents as “a combat-ready, militant group of a new nationalist white supremacy/identity movement.”

The recent indictment gives special attention to Rundo’s more recent activities, particularly his trip to Europe earlier this year where he traveled to Germany, Ukraine, and Italy “to meet with members of European white supremacy extremist groups.” The FBI became aware that one of the individuals with whom Rundo had met during this trip was Olena Semenyaka, a leader of the International Department for the National Corps, a Ukrainian political party that was formed as an offshoot of the Azov Battalion in 2016.

The affidavit detailing Rundo’s meeting with Semenyaka, signed by FBI agent Scott Bierwirth, states that “the Azov Battalion is a paramilitary unit of the Ukrainian National Guard which is known for its association with neo-Nazi ideology and use of Nazi symbolism.” It then adds that Azov Battalion “is believed to have participated in training and radicalizing United States-based white supremacy organizations,” such as RAM.

In other words, the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion is suspected by the U.S. government of both training and radicalizing violent white nationalist groups based in America. This is particularly troubling when one considers the fact that the U.S. government directly enabled the Azov Battalion’s growth and prominence. Now, it seems that those actions have translated into unwanted domestic consequences for the United States government.

The Azov Battalion’s ability to provide training to U.S. white nationalist groups is a testament to the group’s prominence in far-right and National Socialist circles. However, the group’s prominence is the direct result of U.S. government policy toward Ukraine.

Originally a paramilitary group of right-wing Ukrainian nationalists linked to the country’s Social-National Party, Azov Battalion has since become incorporated into Ukraine’s Interior Ministry as a component of the country’s National Guard. In addition, the group’s founder Andrey Bilitsky, is currently a member of Ukraine’s parliament. Bilitsky once said that “The historic mission of our nation in this critical moment is to lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade for their survival.”

Despite the merging of Azov Battalion with the Ukrainian government, the U.S has long continued to support Ukraine’s military with hundreds of millions of dollars in “security, programmatic, and technical assistance,” largely in the name of combatting “Russian aggression.”

China Attempts to Get in on Collision Game; USN Jealous

>A Chinese warship threatened a US Navy destroyer during a tense showdown in the South China Sea in late September, according to new details of the encounter.

>A Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy Type 052C Luyang II-class destroyer challenged the US Navy Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer Decatur during a routine freedom-of-navigation operation near the disputed Spratly Islands. The Chinese warship sailed within 45 yards of the American vessel, nearly colliding with the US destroyer.

>The Chinese vessel "approached USS Decatur in an unsafe and unprofessional maneuver in the vicinity of Gaven Reef in the South China Sea," where it engaged in "a series of increasingly aggressive maneuvers accompanied by warnings for Decatur to depart," a spokesman for the US Pacific Fleet said in a statement. The Decatur was forced to change course to avoid a collision.

>A transcript of the radio exchange between the two naval vessels obtained by the South China Morning Post from the British Ministry of Defense shows that the Chinese ship threatened the Decatur, warning that it would "suffer consequences" if it did not move.

>"You are on dangerous course," the Chinese destroyer warned over the radio. "If you don't change course, your will suffer consequences."

>"We are conducting innocent passage," the Decatur reportedly replied.

>In a video of the incident, an unidentified Navy sailor can be heard saying the Chinese ship is "trying to push us out of the way."

>The video is a little unclear, but there appear to be ship fenders deployed off deck, Collin Koh, a research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, noted on Twitter. He explained that "fenders are designed to mitigate the kinetic impact of a collision," adding that the deployment was "clearly an indication of preparedness for such an eventuality."

>It is potentially noteworthy that the details of the showdown between the US and Chinese warships in the South China Sea came from the British Ministry of Defense, as a British naval vessel also found itself in a standoff with the Chinese military in the South China Sea not too long ago.

>In early September, China dispatched a frigate to take on the UK Royal Navy amphibious assault ship Albion when it sailed too close to Chinese outposts in the Paracel Islands. China called the incident a provocation and warned that it would "take all necessary measures to defend its sovereignty and security."

>The US Navy is apparently expecting incidents like this to occur more frequently. The US and China "will meet each other more and more on the high seas," Chief of US Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said Tuesday.

U.S. Navy’s Costliest Carrier Was Delivered Without Elevators to Lift Bombs

>The $13 billion Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier, the U.S. Navy’s costliest warship, was delivered last year without elevators needed to lift bombs from below deck magazines for loading on fighter jets.

>Previously undisclosed problems with the 11 elevators for the ship built by Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc. add to long-standing reliability and technical problems with two other core systems – the electromagnetic system to launch planes and the arresting gear to catch them when they land.

>The Advanced Weapons Elevators, which are moved by magnets rather than cables, were supposed to be installed by the vessel’s original delivery date in May 2017. Instead, final installation was delayed by problems including four instances of unsafe “uncommanded movements” since 2015, according to the Navy.

>While progress was being made on the carrier’s other flawed systems, the elevator is “our Achilles heel,” Navy Secretary Richard Spencer told reporters in August without providing details.

We all know they're dumb, they don't work in any realistic way but that's what makes it fun to figure out how you could make them work.

>it is teh future

>MMO RPGs have become perfect replicas of real life physics wise

>You log into the latest animu bullshit VR game

>Your class is randomly selected for you and they have weapon restrictions

>You end up with a Gunblade / A sword as big as Godzilla's dick / A neon space dildo

>You're now stuck in this extremely hostile (pvp is on) world where you have to use bullshit fantasy weaponry to survive

>You can't log out and if you die in the game you DIE in real life

>How do you make your fantasy weapon of choice function under real world physics?

It can be a fantasy world, a sci fi world or a modernish post apocalypse world. Make up a scenario and an use for your favourite fictional weapons. The more bullshit the more entertaining it is. The only rule is it must work under real world physics so you can't swing a sword 10 times your size or shoot fireballs out your asshole. If your weapon is a fire staff it can shoot fireballs but you have to deal with all the problems of a wooden staff that's shooting flame out of it (and maybe make up a bullshit excuse using real flame thrower tech).

Body Armor WW3

In all of my years of browsing /k/, I don't think I've ever heard this discussed. In a hypothetical war between Russia and NATO (given that both sides don't just get annihilated by nukes) how would ground combat flesh out? I'm specifically talking about infantry tactics and small arms. My question is: what is stopping either side from becoming mini tanks invulnerable to small arms fire? I know that both sides wear level 4 plates capable of stopping pretty much any small arms fire.

Long range shooting

When are you going to learn how to shoot a mile, /k/? Don't you know it's an essential skill for any oper8tor worth his salt?

Even /k/ommandos in no-guns countries can mostly get their hands on bolt-action rifles. Mildot reticle scopes with good tracking and ballistic calculator apps for phones are more reliable than ever. Just fucking get on it.

gun control will inevitably fail

To make a long story short, the laws of the USA protect handguns.

To argue about the intention of the law gets silly quickly. The USA was founded by revolutionaries. Now the technology of gunmaking has had its own revolution.

How prevalent were firearms during the Renaissance?

At what point did firearms replace pole arms as the primary weapon for infantry?

At what point did bows and crossbows become uncommon on the battlefield?

At what point did plate armor begin to disappear?

How did Renaissance tactics differ from late medieval tactics?

I keep getting conflicting answers to these questions everywhere else. Also, general Renaissance thread. Post your favorite battles, commanders, weapons, etc. from that period.

Linear tactics with crossbowmen

I have always wanted to ask this, was it possible to do line infantry tactics but with crossbowmen instead? Could this have revolutionized warfare if we brought this tactics back into the past?

Life after the ban

Americans, let's pretend we have to put up with another AWB except its worse than '94 and they banned all semi-autos. This is a thought experiment here, not for posting about how you'd shoot when they come for your guns we know that already, why would you be here if you were just going to hand them over?

Would you be able to make it? Or would you kill yourself out of depression? I'd be fine enough, I've been jonesing for single shot rifles like the Sharpes and I'd really love to have a nice double rifle. Furthermore, I have plenty of milsurp bolt actions and plenty more I want to buy that would keep me occupied. For handguns, I would dive headlong into the repro blackpowder market. The kits from Dixie Gun Works have been teasing me for a while.

Where can i get custom seamless steel pipes to make barrels out of?

Every video i see about making guns from 'scratch' involve making the receiver then just re purposing an old barrel instead of actually making it, i live in a country where you can't get any firearm parts without a license and i can't find any way to source a steel tube stock with the right grade steel and dimensions yet alone a precursor to a barrel, how the hell do i get or make a 9mm barrel?

Enoch posted a petition on Facebook calling for the removal of this billboard

senior Queensland Government minister was targeted with rape and death threats after complaining about a billboard in her electorate that suggested a handgun would make a good Christmas present.

Queensland Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch complained about the billboard advertisement by firearms retailer Gun World three weeks before last year’s state election.

The advertisement featured a smiling woman dressed in a Santa-themed outfit holding a handgun with the slogan: “Santa knows what you really want for Christmas”.

Ms Enoch — who was small business minister at the time — posted a petition on her Facebook page calling for the billboard’s removal because “it does not reflect the kind of community we want to live in — one that is free of guns”.

“My first reaction to it was one of horror,” she told ABC’s Four Corners program.

“This is really diminishing the value, the importance of, the responsibility of, gun ownership.”

Her post attracted over 3,000 comments.

Among them was: “Let someone break into your house and rape and kill you”; “Someone shoot this bitch”; and “Remember that while being raped”.

“There were moments where I really thought, ‘Am I in danger here?'” Ms Enoch said.

Ms Enoch’s petition also separately drew the ire of a gun industry lobby group, the Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia (SIFA).

SIFA condemned the petition, accusing Ms Enoch of wanting to rid the community of all guns.

“It is outrageous that a small business which serves a legal, open and ethical market should be targeted by a QLD Labor MP,” it said in a media release.

The lobby group later cited Ms Enoch’s petition as one reason for backing a political campaign called “Flick em” during the election.

SIFA contributed $220,000 to the $555,460 “Flick em” campaign during last year’s Queensland election. It aimed to force a hung parliament by urging voters to place the major parties last.

Among the likely beneficiaries of the campaign were One Nation and Katter’s Australian Party, whose federal leader, Bob Katter, is the father-in-law of SIFA director Robert Nioa.

One of SIFA’s goals was to push for discussions about the re-categorisation of some firearms, including the controversial Adler lever action shotgun the Queensland Government had recently made harder to acquire.

Mr Nioa’s company imports the Adler shotgun into Australia for sale.

SIFA spokeswoman Laura Patterson said the abuse directed at Ms Enoch after her petition was unacceptable.

“It upsets me personally, and I’m sure that behaviour is absolutely something that the Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia would condemn,” she said.

“We do not condone, in any way, any activity of that variety in any form.”

Commander and General formation

How do the thinking minds get educated in order to lead their soldiers into battle? I suppose there's an obvious theoretical part with studying involved, but do they have access to any kind of simulators to turn them into the best commanders possible?
