NATO Summit 2018

Off to a great start lads:

>“Germany is totally controlled by Russia … They will be getting between 60 and 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that is appropriate because I think its not,” Trump said, before criticizing Berlin's failure to significantly increase defense spending. Trump was speaking at a press conference Wednesday morning in front of NATO representatives ahead of a two-day summit. “I think it is a very bad thing for NATO and I don’t think it should have happened and I think we have to talk to Germany about it. On top of that, Germany is just paying a little bit over 1 percent (on defense) … And I think that is inappropriate also,” he added.

Lauren Higbie - Veteran's Last Song Lyrics

Artist: Lauren Higbie

Album: Veteran's Last Song

Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Highlight. Review: RIFF-it.

RIFF-it good.

I am standing on the summit

Of a century of years

That has measured the life of our nation,

And I sabered down the mountain

A flood of blood and tears

That was shed for our country's salvation.

And I see a mighty legion, who for a nation's life

would forfeit young manhood's fresh glory,

And I see a mighty legion who pitted in the strife

Now sleeping in garments stiff and gory.

And where going soon to meet them in the bivouac of the soul,

As the shadows around us give warning,

And I want to see my comrades when the angels call the Roll,

All are ready for inspection in the morning.

We where boys when we enlisted, and these wrinkled brows where clear,

And our eyes where not dimmed in their vision,

And the frost that never melts had not fallen on our hair,

And our step had not lost its precision.

But the years have built their terraces on every comrades brow,

And age made our weary limbs quiver,

And the frost was falling thick and we landed ever quick

to the camp that is over the river.

And where going soon to meet them in the bivouac of the soul

As the shadows around us give warning,

And I want to see my comrades when the angels call the Roll,

All are ready for inspection in the morning.

Burgers Adopt Precision-Guided Nuclear Bomb

The B61-12 gravity nuclear bomb

The airplane-dropped nuke from the sixties got a service life extension, and a laser guidance system, for thermonuclear strikes with SURGICAL PRECISION.

Presumably on countries with no anti-aircraft capabilities.

>The bomb tests are a part of the Pentagon's $7.6 billion 'B61-12 Life Extension Program', which aims to “refurbish, reuse, or replace all of the bomb’s nuclear and non‐nuclear components” and extend the service life of the B61 by at least 20 years.

>Besides deploying B61-12 on modern and future long range bombers, the Pentagon is making sure the bomb can be easily used by F-15E fighter jets, and wants to integrate it with the F-35 Lightning II fifth generation combat jets, raising concerns it is creeping towards lowering the threshold for tactical use of nuclear weapons.

QBZ-95 and other bullpups

Let's discuss this Chinese bullpup. It's using modified AK mechanism to function, making it much less error prone than other bullpups. It's also widely deployed. Second pic compares Canadian export version to rifle with about same barrel length. B version fixed many things of A version, most notably moving fire selector from stock to where it should above trigger.

In my opinion from what I have studied, bullpups are the way forward as Chinese army has standardized over QBZ not only for infantry, but for tank crews and urban commandos since it's so compact. Having never shot bullpup myself, what does /k/ think of them? Why aren't they used more widely? Having been to army, urban combat in particular would be a lot easier since holding normal assault rifle in attack position over five minutes gets very taxing due to its front-heavy weight.

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.

Using 3D printers to produce molds for Investment Casting

Ok, serious question. Can people make their own guns by 3D printing wax models of the parts to use in Investment Casting (lost-wax casting)?

Investment casting is a method of producing a metal design by encasing a disposable wax pattern in Investment powder. The wax (Made in a Master-mold) or casting resin (For a 3D printer) is melted or evaporated after the mold around it has hardened in a kiln. Molten metal can then me poured in from the top vent. The standard tolerance I think, is 1"/ 5,000 or 5µm in metric. A good Top-down resin-based DLP printer has a max resolution of 25µm. To give you some perspective on that, a piece of A4 paper is about 80 µm thick. Once the metal has cooled back into a solid, the mold is destroyed to retrieve the casting. But what molten metals are appropriate to make guns with and how do we mix the additives (Carbon, Chromium, ect)?

The Iron and other raw materials will be harder to melt after they've cooled {Made into Steel} so we can assume it'd be easier to melt the materials and pour them into the mold before they become an alloy. More importantly, what would we need to make our own ammo?

About the metals used in guns: http://www.rifleshootermag.com/rifles/ar-15/guide-to-gun-metal/

Here in Australia, we are not allowed to use firearm to defend ourselves. You must either be part of a gun-club or own farm-animals such as horses which may need to be put down. But If one were to use a 3D printer to make wax molds of all the parts needed to make a gun, it could be legally sold and packaged. The recipient could then make an investment casting with the mold in private. Guns could thus be produced on the Black Market.

Note: Before selling these wax patterns or other materials, we must ensure that our customers are White. This can be done by asking them to post a photo doing a certain gesture on a social media website, along with a comment we ask them to type.

What else needs to be considered?

Not a particular fan but I think it gets way more shit than it deserves, especially when polemicist streloks neglect to emphasize how much more failing its predecessor/equivalent F-111 had, making the F-35 of its time but worse. If it came a decade earlier the Tornado would have been the wunderwaffe F-111 promised but failed to be.

Seriously though the constant shilling of the F-35 Merkel was what got me. There were (((suits))) saying how great it was and everytime there was a cut to another location picture of the F-35 shoved down your throat. It felt like a Lockheeb brochure than centenary event. There was one very interesting point though. Whenever an actual RAF pilot was interviewed they had nothing and I mean nothing to say about the F-35. Loads of praise for other aircraft past and present in particular the Tornado almost pleading with everyone to not let it go, but it looked like they were going to great lengths to deliberately avoid talking about the F-35.

Airstrip one nightmare

So I know everyone is creaming their panties over Tommy Robinson getting arrested but after looking into what happens to other groups he got iff light all things considered.

http://subvert.pw/article.php?id=60

>The police have made the claim that they must "disrupt" the activities of right wing groups that spread "division" in their communities. To keep their communities "safe" they have enacted a policy of psychological terrorism against all perceived offenders. Through the use of systemic isolation, retroactive judgments, and creative re-framing they have suppressed the lives and liberties of former NA members.

>Many people put on trial are slammed with a criminal antisocial behavior order. Such an order stipulates that a person cannot interact with any "racist" persons for a period of five to six years. Its a thinly veiled attempt to isolate and decimate victims. These measures have seen exclusive use against the right wing.

>Many quickly crack under the pressure. It is known that one activist has taken his own life after being being told that he would receive a sentence. He was neither involved with the incident that led to the trial, nor even attending the same university. Out of respect for the man and a lack of clear details, we will not publish his identity here unless more information comes to surface.

>The first trials occurred over a set of stickers placed at Aston University in Birmingham. Using a design made to mock "Sharia Zone" stickers placed by radical Muslim activists, activists placed "white zone" stickers approximately the size of a post-it note on signs near the University. These events happened almost a year before the proscription placed against the group in 2016. Their actions at the time would have resulted in, at worst, a fine or community service. However prosecutors have decided to take a much more ambitious route.

>At the conclusion of the trial two members were sent to prison for hard time, due to the changes in law. Within a day of arriving, one defendant, Chad Williams-Allen, was brutalized by an unknown gang of men. He was found on the floor stabbed in the neck with his skull nearly caved in. The guards outside his cell refused to acknowledge the incident until his cell mate broke the silence six hours later. He was later moved to a different prison after authorities feared a compromise in the facility.

>It should be clear to any sensible person that this was a cut and dry witch trial. In this case, the law is being applied in an ex post facto manner, a clear violation of article seven of European Convention on Human Rights. Two of the people convicted were not even involved with the incident. The judge has even explicitly stated that these punishments are not even being based on the merits of the case, but instead on the level of activity each defendant had within National Action.

>The second of these trials, pertaining to Jack Renshaw and his associates, is a bit more mundane than what would meet the eye. Jack Renshaw is another example of the results of unjust police pressure. During a variety of interactions with the policed, he began to believe that he was being investigated and possibly framed for child abuse charges (the validity of these claims are unclear). He became unstable, and during a night while drinking with friends Renshaw stated that he wished to commit suicide by cop. His friends, in an attempt to stabilize him, noted that he was still a virgin and decided to take him to a nearby club.

>Unfortunately for Jack Renshaw, someone else was listening. Robbie Mullen, a friend of the group and ex member of National Action, turned informant to British NGO Hope Not Hate. He utilize unknown surreptitious recording techniques to capture an audio log of the event. This file was passed back to the group and entered as a key piece of evidence against him in the trial.

>This also exposes another symptom of the psychological damage done to former National Action members. For those unfamiliar, this is a classic story of blackmail and entrapment seen so often in the world of intelligence analytics. Mullen was most likely pressured by Hope Not Hate to rat out his friend. After having his sense of self ownership likely annihilated by a well trained recruiter (usually with claims that he is trapped and that only the recruiter can help him), he received significant financial compensation for his acts. During a cross examination, it was revealed that he received nearly 22,000 pounds a year, as well as free rent, meals, train travel, and free electronics (a laptop and an iphone) from Hope Not Hate.

>Hope Not Hate maintains not only that National Action still exists as an organization (even though anyone with a clear perspective of the situation could infer otherwise), but that its members w

Miltiary Watches Thread

What's your favorite military inspired watches /k/?

This is my new purchase:

Marathon general purpose mechanical watch (GPM) in stainless steel with the GTLS tritium light tubes and sports a Swiss Eta 2801-2 movement without date ring and uses a wind up function. 42 h power reserve and a 28800 beat/h movement. Watch has government markings and also features a 3mm thick sapphire crystal with underside anti reflective coating and also, since marathon is a contracted watch manufacturer of military watches from around the world, has a nato stock number and is manufactured to current us military watch procurement requirements which has categories such as shock survivability, magnetic field resistance, water resistance and precision.

Overall I love this watch. Owned it for about a week now and the winding action every morning gives me a boner. I love the tritium pips they are VERY legible at night and are brighter then luminox trit from what I hear. I highly recommend this watch. I snagged mine at 420 on sale from 650 retail.

Boys in the Congo were forced to rape their mothers while blood-drinking soldiers

Is african culture the closes we will ever get to the skaven from warhammer fantasy to be real? I doubt even Middle Earth Orcs were half as savages as African blacks.

>Rebels and government troops in the Kasai region of the African country have committed sickening atrocities including mass rape and cannibalism, UN human rights experts claim.

In one horrific massacre, 186 men and young boys from a single village had their heads chopped off, the report says.

The team investigating the conflict in the Kasai region told the United Nations Human Rights Council last week that they suspected all sides were guilty of war crimes and offenses against humanity.

Their detailed, 126-page report cataloged gruesome attacks committed in the conflict, which erupted in late 2016, involving the Kamuina Nsapu and Bana Mura militias and Congo’s armed forces, the FARDC.

The testimony included boys being forced to rape their mothers, little girls being told witchcraft would allow them to catch bullets, and women forced to choose between gang rape or death.

What happened in the Kasai is almost beyond description, Congo’s Human Rights Minister Marie-Ange Mushobekwa told the council.

“One victim told us that in May 2017 she saw a group of Kamuina Nsapu militia, some of whom sported female genitals as medals,” the report said.

“Some witnesses recalled seeing people cutting up, cooking and eating human flesh, including penises cut from men who were still alive and from corpses, especially FARDC, and drinking human blood.”

Lead investigator Bacre Waly Ndiaye told the council that in one incident, at least 186 men and boys from a single village were beheaded by the Kamuina Nsapu.

The rebel group includes child soldiers forced to fight, unarmed or wielding sticks, who are convinced that magic has made them invulnerable.

Many such children were killed when FARDC soldiers machine-gunned them indiscriminately, said Ndiaye.

Exploding Chewing Gum Kills Student

A chemistry student in the Ukraine was found dead with his jaw blown off by what is believed to be exploding chewing gum, according to reports.

The 25-year-old's disfigured remains were discovered at his parent's home in the northern Ukrainian city of Konotop, reports in the Eastern European country said.

The young man, who studied at Kiev Polytechnic Institute, was working at a computer late on Saturday when the alleged explosion happened.

"A loud pop was heard from the student's room," the ukranews.com Web site said, citing an aide to the city's police chief.

"When his relatives entered the room, they saw that the lower part of the young man's face had been blown off."

A forensic examination established that the chewing gum was covered with an unidentified chemical substance, thought to be some type of explosive material.

The student apparently had a bizarre habit of chewing gum after dipping it into citric acid, Russian news agency Ria Novosti said.

Officers found both citric acid packets and a similar-looking unidentified substance, believed to be some kind of explosive material, on a table near the body, the agency continued.

Investigators suspect that the student simply confused the packets and put gum covered with explosive material into his mouth.

Forensic experts were to travel from Kiev to investigate the substance, as local authorities feared it may explode if transported.

An Open Source Rifle Project

There are a lot of talented designers here, and I think it would be possible for us to put together a design for an open source rifle.

First, here is the intent of the idea:

*To design a line of firearms in such a way as to make them very easy to build for the homebuilder from scratch. Not merely assembling from parts but rather to actually make the parts as well.

*This design should be scalable and adaptable in design. Not so much for swappability but for the sake of simplicity. If the best and cheapest upper is a tube style action, then lets start there. The more complex designs and adaptations can follow later on. If the best is a stamped or folded upper then we should start there.

*The plans should provide for the above mentioned adaptability: So that the desired caliber and action can be chosen and constructed.

*To provide the plans of the original as well as any and all add-on designs for free online.

The scope of the idea.

*To start with a rifle platform that is as simple and easy to construct from scratch as possible while being safe, reliable and durable.

*The design should avoid as much as possible requiring any machine work.

*The design should include all necessary parts in the plans for home construction. And not rely on manufactured parts for anything if possible. (the barrel will need to be machined obviously so that part could be a common off the shelf item.)

*To include, where necessary or helpful, plans for making jigs, tools or even simple machines in order to build the firearm.

*To allow, by being "open sourced" that the original design can be ever improved and added to. New designs for the upper, lower, action, magazine well, magazines and all other aspects of the firearm to be added and included. Allowing for an ever expanding collection of plans made available to homebuilders for free.

*The gun should be able to be assembled and disassembled without tools

*Be fully Ambidextrous

The objective.

*to give, freely, the experience and knowledge of a few, to many. To empower people who choose the challenge and responsibility of building a firearm from scratch to have access to a good design that can be built in the caliber and functioning action of their preference. With designs & plans to allow for the use of either newly made parts or commonly available parts.

The plan to get started.

*To design and construct a prototype using the simplest methods possible.

*Choose a design for the upper; including bolt, action and trunnion.

*Choose a design for the lower/FCG.

*Choose a design for the magazine well.

*Choose a caliber for the prototype.

*choose a design for the magazine.

**Design the above elements.

***Build the above elements.

***Assemble the rifle.

My proposal.

*use either a tube type upper or a bent sheet metal upper.

*make it roller locked or roller delayed blow-back.

*use as much off the shelf as possible. Standard sizes of steel bar, angle, tubing and such should not be hard to find and should require as little machining as possible.

*design for the worst case scenario. Assume that the builder only has files, drill press and a dremel tool.

*design a simple and safe FCG that has the trigger at the back of the housing.

*chamber for 5.56x45mm and use an off the shelf barrel to keep things simple.

*build a simple single stack magazine that holds at least 20 cartridges and is removable.

I am not much of a designer or draftsman, so call me a faggot or a fed if/when I am unable to help much with this project.

Anything to do with conflict that isn't between sovereign states falls within the purview of this thread. Weapons, vehicles, tactics, strategy, etc.

Found the following in a book from 1995, written by an American veteran of the Vietnam war who also served as a mercenary in Croatia and Rhodesia.

Civil War II Checklist

''"It would indeed be the ultimate tragedy if the history of the human race proved to

be nothing more noble than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a

petrol dump." - David Ormsby- Gore''

Let's summarize some of the key factors which will measure our march toward Civil War II.

Concerned individuals are invited to watch for their development. The events of this

checklist are in no particular order of importance or sequence of occurrence. Some have

already occurred to some degree, but should be monitored for further growth.

Item 1: If the racial tattooing of ethnic classifications on ID cards and other documents

persists, we'll know the countdown clock is ticking. Every time you see a blank for your

ethnic group on a form, think Civil War II.

Item 2: If illegal aliens are allowed to vote, even in local elections, it will be another

unmistakable signal that American citizenship, and therefore America itself, is finished. If

the millions of illegal aliens in America are granted amnesty and get the vote, it will mean

open immigration and a giant step towards Civil War II.

Item 3: The abolition of the right to bear arms. This must be done to reduce the military

potential of those assigned to the bottom tier of the emerging multiethnic American

Empire. Those in higher tiers will retain their guns - and thereby their military resources -

through devices such as the Nation of Islam's security company and street gangs. Imperial

conversion cannot be completed without '''breaking the military potential of the white

working class''', the historic key to military dominance of North America.

In colonial times, the arrogant British imperial establishment mistakenly thought the key to

the military dominance of North America consisted of imperial European armies and

alliances with Indian tribes. Ordinary, native born, white Americans and their militias were

treated with sneering scorn, good only for a hearty laugh before being brushed aside by

His Majesty's imperial redcoats. If the current imperial establishment has any sense of

history, they will not repeat George the Third's folly.

Item 4: Watch for racially split juries. (The New York Times, "Two Trials Reflect City's Two

Worlds", March 24,1992,p. 12) If jurors begin to refuse to convict their co-ethnics, then our

progress towards basic social breakdown and Civil War II is accelerating. This will be one

of the most serious indicators that we're edging closer to a social earthquake and a

breakup along tribal fault lines. Some prominent blacks have already encouraged black

jurors to consider jury nullification. In a short piece in Harper's magazine, Paul Butler, a

black lawyer, said this about the hypothetical case of a black drug addict whom black

jurors know to be guilty of burglary of a "rich white family":

"For example, if the offense was committed to support a drug habit, I think there is a

moral case to be made for nullification, at least until such time as access to drug-

rehabilitation services are available to all." (Harper's Magazine, December, 1995,

adapted from Paul Butler's article" Racially Based Jury Nullification: Black Power in the

Criminal Justice System" in the Yale Law Journal)

Watch for states to allow conviction by a majority of a jury. Currently, only Louisiana and

Oregon allow conviction by majority, but the Supreme Court ruled in 1972 that even a 9 to

3 majority is constitutionally sufficient for conviction. Eventually, the Supreme Court will

suspend the right to trail by jury altogether in the final stages of imperial conversion.

I think ships should be named after qualities

>In April 2010 a furor arose when it was reported that Mabus made the proposal to name a United States Navy warship the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) after the late Pennsylvania Democratic congressman John Murtha. Additional naming controversies occurred due to the naming of auxiliary ship after civil rights activist Cesar Chavez who has described his service in the U.S. Navy as "…the worst two years in my life,"[22][23] and a littoral combat ship after former Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, after she suffered life-threatening wounds in the 2011 mass shooting in her home district of Tucson, Arizona.

>Subsequent ship namings include his January 6, 2016 announcement of his naming of another auxiliary ship after civil rights activist and sitting incumbent Georgia Democratic Congressman John Lewis. Mabus further stated that this particular class of auxiliary ship, of which the John Lewis would be the lead ship, would all be named after civil rights leaders.[25] Mabus followed this action with his July 14, 2016 naming of the subsequent after gay rights icon and former San Francisco Democratic politician the late Harvey Milk.

If we name ships by people or things, we might end up with a ship named "Harvey Milk".

Is the phalanx formation unbeatable in open field combat?

Been playing a lot of Total War games and similar games to it, I have found the perfect formation.

Pikemen: front and center

Shock infantries (with big sword or big axe): behind the pike, near two flanks.

Heavy cavalries: near two flanks.

Archer: Skirmish before enemy gets close, when enemy gets close gets behind formation.

Artillery: Behind formation.

Order of battle:

-> if enemy attack, loop them full of rocks and arrows, if they send cavalries, counter them with cavalries, otherwise, hold them with the pikeman then hammer them with heavier cavalry.

-> if enemy not attack, just loop them full of rocks and arrows until they attack then repeat.

-> if horse archer, stand firm and loop rock and arrows at them until they die.

German Armed Forces

Shortfalls in the German army's personnel and equipment are "dramatically" hindering its readiness for combat, according to a new report. No submarines or large transport planes were available for deployment at the end of last year, the report says. It also points to failures in planning and leadership that have exacerbated existing problems in the military.

The report was published by the parliamentary commissioner for the armed forces, Hans-Peter Bartels. "The army's readiness to deploy has not improved in recent years, but instead has got even worse," Mr Bartels told reporters at a press conference in Berlin. "At the end of the year six out of six submarines were not in use. At times, not one of the 14 Airbus A-400M could fly," he said. Mr Bartels said all of the vehicles were being repaired at the time of the report. The condition of the military's fleet of fighter planes, tanks, helicopters and ships is described as "dramatically bad". The report also says a lack of spare parts and outdated equipment has left "big gaps" in the armed forces. It notes that thousands positions for officers were vacant, resulting in a lack of adequate leadership.

The report calls on the government to pursue reforms "with greater urgency" and increase the defence budget. Germany spent €37bn ($45bn; £33) in 2017 on defence - about 1.2% of GDP, well short of the Nato target of 2%.

The issue of defence spending did not play a major part in recent coalition talks, but Chancellor Angela Merkel has pledged to meet the 2% spending target by 2024. "We will make the best possible equipment, training and support available to our soldiers," Ms Merkel said earlier this year. On Monday, a Nato diplomat told Reuters news agency that "German readiness levels are a serious concern". Germany has for years struggled to modernise its military as it becomes more involved in Nato operations. It scrapped conscription to become a professional army seven years ago, but in 2016 said it was considering a form of national service for civil defence.

Recurrent funding issues have been highly embarrassing. In 2014, it was revealed that tank commanders had covered up their lack of machine guns by using broomsticks painted black during a Nato exercise.

Other Nato members have also started to increase defence spending. The alliance faces a range of security challenges, including the Islamist insurgencies in the Middle East and Africa.

Trump administration not acting like fags for once

Military should focus on combat not gender politics

Ever since James Mattis was appointed by President Donald Trump as defense secretary, he has made no secret of his commitment to maintain and improve the effectiveness and caliber of the United States military.

“I’m not subtle,” Mattis told GOP lawmakers earlier this year. “I need to make the military more lethal.”

According to a report from The Washington Times, the United States Army just took a huge step to ensure that its soldiers will continue to be the most effective and powerful force on Earth.

In what is a major shift from the Obama administration era, fighting and battlefield skills will now take priority over social justice issues like transitioning transgender troops.

In service-wide memorandums obtained by The Washington Times, military leaders are making optional what used to be mandatory training on transgender transition, drug abuse and other issues.

The memorandums were approved by both Army Secretary Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.

“The move, Army leaders argue, is designed to relieve stress on the overburdened troop training regimen and refocus on soldiers’ ability to fight in combat,” The Washington Times reported.

The Chief of the Army’s collective training division Col. John O’Grady said that the former training requirements “served as barriers to maximizing time … to build readiness and lethality” within combat units.

“The Army’s regulations and policies that deal with training were pretty settled, and there were not a lot of detractors to it. … It was all the other [training] requirements that we levied on ourselves, or we had levied from other places” that led to the burdensome approach to combat readiness, O’Grady explained.

These changes will bring the Army in line with the Pentagon’s new National Defense Strategy under President Trump, and the policy initiatives of Defense Secretary Mattis, which include more focus on challenging rivals such as Russia and China, and increasing the military’s overall lethality.

In addition to doing away with mandatory non-combatant training, the Army is also extending the time soldiers spend in infantry training. “Soldiers graduating from the nine-week basic training course will now spend an additional two months in advanced individual training before heading to their first duty stations,” The Washington Times reported.

“The military is expected to prepare its members in warfare: to kill, destroy, and break our enemies. The most important factors in preparing a strong military are not hormone therapy, surgical sex changes, or politically correct education,” wrote speaker and author Walt Heyer for The Daily Signal. “We need psychologically fit, emotionally sound, highly trained troops to protect our nation from its enemies.”

Under the leadership of Trump and Mattis, military men and women can take comfort that they will be prepared for the challenges they will face on the battlefield and be spared from Obama era indoctrination.

Suppressor Improvement thread

Also, suppressor thread general.

I have been musing about the idea of a suppressor with a liquid atomizing injector system operated by the propellant's own expanding gasses. Essentially the gas impulse would push some liquid (water, Novec 1230 etc) into the suppressor where the heat of vaporization would draw the energy out of the explosion. There would be no residue or mess and the suppressant liquid would be reapplied with every shot. This would keep the device cool and operating as long as there was enough liquid in a reserve tank.

>picrelated is shitty paint drawing of my idea

It is generally accepted that "Wet" suppressors are quieter than dry, even with modern engineering. The problems with wet suppressors are:

-They dry out

-They wear out within a few shots

-They expel their dampener with every shot

-They are messy

What are the downsides of using a water or other liquid atomizer to absorb the energy of the propellant?

One such option I was looking at is the Novec 1230 fluid used in commercial fire suppression systems. (https://www.3m.com.sg/3M/en_SG/novec-sg/applications/fire-s uppression/)

Pair this with a timed shutter system to trap all expanding propellant in the suppressor and you could make a meme-tier silencer.

Scale of gyrojet to tauchpanzers how memetically stupid is my idea?

Improvised Munitions Project

So I'm working on a little project here I think some of you will like.

In short, I tried creating an updated version of the Improvised Munitions handbook, essentially making a collection of relevant PDFs that would satisfactorily contain all the knowledge of the book and more. While making the book, I noticed how shit the publication actually is.The explosives recipes are ridiculously dangerous (almost no safety precautions or specific temperatures listed at where some sensitive explosives would detonate if not carefully watched.) Not even going to mention the illustrations showing an ungloved hand unceremoniously handling high explosives.

The project from there evolved to encompass a slightly wider subject matter covering things like sabotage and militia building. The articles included were no longer for "macgyvering" shitty weapons out of scrap, but were now intended to be recipes for the common citizen with a reasonable amount of time, money, education, and resources to utilize. You know, the people who would need this information the most.

The one thing I keep seeing over and over again as I work on this document is that in this day and age, the information needed to create explosives, homemade guns, and munitions in general are now more available than ever to the common man with the introduction of the internet. There's a problem that I also keeping seeing in that a main chunk of PDFs out there that focus on "Anarchists Cookbook" like topics are usually:

Poorly formatted, (What's the use of your shitty infographic on making C4 in your mom's kitchen if it looks like it was scanned from a book about 25 times and can't be read when printed out?) Outdated, Dangerous, (I get that making explosives is already dangerous, but holy shit even the U.S military was guilty of peddling recipes that would have likely killed you, had you actually tried them.) Or sometimes even just contain flat out misinformation. In short, I'm in the middle of reformatting a shit ton of PDF files, fact checking, researching topics I never knew anything about, etc. and etc. Posted is the planned table of contents for version 3.0 of the document with most of the chapters being done with only a few minor tweaks needed. What I'm aiming for is a manual, sort of a combination of what the Anarchists Cookbook and Improvised Munitions Handbook intended to be, with modern day tactics and accurate information.

It would be immensely helpful if I could get some criticism, recommendations, or links to relevant PDF files. I can't create an "Anarchist's Cookbook" that actually works if I don't know what information people would actually like to SEE in a book like this, so I figured I would ask you guys. Some of the chapter names are really vague so if I need to explain exactly what information I have collected for said chapter for you guys I will if requested.

I want to give citizens the knowledge needed to be able to arm themselves should the government decides that the right to bear arms is no longer self-evident, but no one wants to sift through thousands of shady articles on how to go about making IEDs, and when the time comes to ACTUALLY do so, the common man may no longer have the ability to access said information.

Nuclear submarines are OP!

US ARMY DEVELOPING THIRD ARM

>The US Army isn't just looking to giving soldiers a hand, but a whole extra arm. At the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is testing a prototype passive support system called Third Arm, which evenly distributes the weight of heavy weapons, allowing soldiers to use them with less fatigue and greater accuracy.

>In the 1986 sci-fi classic Aliens, one of the signature props was the fictional M56 Smartgun, which was a dressed up MG42 machine gun stuck on a steadicam mount. This mount, which in reality connects a hand-held cine-camera to the operators body to stabilize it, made for some very cool action scenes and has now apparently inspired a real-life counterpart.

>Mechanical engineer Dan Baechle has come up with a more advanced, more articulated, militarized version of the steadicam mount that can take the weight of a weapon off a soldier's arms. Third Arm is an unpowered, articulated frame made of composite materials that helps to distribute the weapon's weight while allowing enough range of motion to be practical on the battlefield.

First Gun

I'm a 19/yo burger who grew up in a very multiculti town where guns where not approved of so I've never really been around them. Never even shot one. I think that it's important for all sane and able adult men to own guns though for political reasons, so now that I'm at college and have a job I would like to into guns.

I was into archery as a kid and like bow hunting. I would probably mostly use whatever I buy for hunting and shooting at a range.

So, what is a good first gun? I'm thinking some kind of sporty rifle. Maybe with a wood stock because I like how they look. I really know nothing about guns though so maybe that is dumb. I don't really know what is reasonable to spend. Hopefully less than 600 USD.

My college doesn't allow its students to own guns. I would keep it locked up in my car when I wasn't, but I'd like something that if a basic liberal saw for some reason they would think "hunting" not "school shooter".

Military service a failed career for reformed NEETs?

Greetings Streloks,

I'm interested in joining the military for

>weapons and physical training

>valid career path

I'm currently in my early 30s, working on getting /fit/, and in the last two years have learned and practiced with firearms more than I've ever done in any point in my life. I've also been hiking and doing a lot of mild PT. I'm sure it's nothing compared to what the Army will throw at me but I'm certainly not the skinny rail I was for the last decade. I've also kicked all my drug habits aside from tobacco. I do not have anything on my record, haven't been in the trouble with the law, and have no medical problems. I think the only things going against me would be

>a visit to the ER for a panic attack that was caused by loss of a family member combined with drug withdrawal

>a visit to a suboxone clinic and the prescription I filled. I never returned to the clinic and didn't take the meds because I saw how they treated people and figured out it was basically a doctors dealing legal heroin

The last one was an idiot move but I went at the urging of my Grandmother whom I currently live with and over the last 5-6 months I've become the head of household. Her husband died last year, a man I looked up to a lot, and I've pretty much taken over in his stead.

Also, I do not have a good employment track record. I supported myself through writing software and drug dealing after getting out of high school. I do have a good /tech/ background but I can't really prove it nor do I have a degree in anything I know. I've been jumping from job to job these last two years with no direction. I have never been fired but I've walked off the job two times in as many years and quit a third because the boss was an asshole that drove me to quitting over the course of many months. I only stuck around as long as I did at that job because he kept threatening to fire my friend that got me the job.

Will the Air Force or Army take me despite all of this? If not can I get some sort of waver? Would you suggest officer school for someone my age? Do I have other options if they won't take me? Is this a good idea or am I setting myself up for a bad time?

Let's have a tank thread that's not about outdated designs, but about vehicles so fresh they only exists in our heads. So not outright sci-fi tonks, but something that could be built in the coming decades.

For example, how about a tank that, instead of a traditional engine, uses electric motors integrated to the running gear, and the energy is provided by free-piston linear generators distributed in the hull of the tank. You could place some of them in the bottom of the hull, while some more could be in the sides, over the tracks. This way it would be practically impossible to take out the engine, because you'd have to destroy all the pistons for that. And they have a better fuel economy, and are easier to repair or replace. Best of all, if you made a free-piston linear generator that develops around 100 horsepower, then you could use that in nearly all of your ground vehicles. You'd just need 4-5 in a truck and about 15 in a tank.

Magazine Capacity vs Carry

The StG 44 had a 30 round magazine but soldiers tended to carry 25 rounds in them because of spring wear and a packed spring leading to decreased reliability. Later magazines had a spacer so you could only load 25 rounds. I heard of stories of troops in Vietnam loading their 20 round M-16 magazines with only 16-18 rounds to make them more reliable in combat and reduce spring wear. I've heard a person or two suggest they carry one or two less rounds in their carry magazines for conceal carry in their high capacity pistols for similar reasons.

With modern improvements in methods and metals, magazines should be more reliable today. Yet, does anybody here suggest this or have or does use this method of increasing reliability? Any stories of anybody who does today, or in the past? Are small magazines more or less reliable, is a 30 round AR 15 magazine as good as a 20, is a 30 round magazine with 20 rounds loaded more reliable than a 20 round magazine with 20 rounds in it? Do 30 round magazines for the M14/M1a and FAL's work at all?

Fields of Blood

Hi, I am trainautist. You may remember me from such threads like "Powerlevels, nuclear plants and power supply during wartimes" or "Trainautism, why trains are the arteries of your military and how to protect them".

Today I would like to talk with you about another topic I find interesting. Agriculture and it's military applications.

Just to get the obvious thing out of the way first: An army marches on it's stomach. This is so obvious I won't even bother explaining it. Feel free to discuss the best kind of crops to grow for food purposes.

I am more interested in another aspect of warfare and agriculture.

To all of you who have been in the army, how often did you actually train fighting in some fields, or orchards? Probably never. Military training areas are mostly natural areas, with some meadows, some forests, some mountains, some rivers…pretty much every terrain you can encounter in nature. Some training grounds even pride themselves with their pure natural areas, and with how well they take care of the environment.

This is a noble thing of course. Protecting your country contains protecting the environment thereof, and some species that have died out "in the wild" can only survive in biomes provided and protected by the training grounds. If any of you Americans have ever been to Grafenwöhr you have seen some of the most beautiful nature Germany can provide. That place is like a jewel. A mine infested, UXO polluted jewel of natural beauty, but a jewel never the less.

According to the UN nearly 50 million square kilometers of land are used for agricultural purposes. The entire land area of planet earth (including deserts, Antarctica, permafrost areas, and otherwise uninhabitable zones like the Chernobyl and Fukishima nogo-zones) is 148 940 000 square kilometers (roughly 150 million). Roughly one third of ALL land on earth is used in some way shape or form to produce foodstuffs.

If you assume that warfare would only take place in areas where humans actually live (so excluding uninhabitable zones) that percentage would only increase, since nobody performs agriculture in uninhabitable places.

You can probably see what I am trying to point at. It's very likely that warfare will take place in an agricultural zone, and we have MANY historic examples of that. Look up any war footage from any war where video footage was a thing. You will be hard pressed to find videos that do not feature some sort of agricultural area, unless you pick exclusively urban combat video footage.

So why on earth are there barely any training areas for combat in agricultural areas? Especially since they can be utilized so easily for your own advantage if you know how.

Rape and corn are very good examples of this.

You can hide entire artillery batteries inside a field of corn. Even if the vehicles are very tall, as long as the barrels don't extend beyond the highest corn plants the vehicles will be practically invisible from the sides, and can be camouflaged from the top by pulling a net over them and weaving a thick layer of corn plants into said net. It's gonna be a lot of effort (a lot more than hiding it in some wooded area), but it's doable, and if you just want to hide it from ground observation (because you already have air superiority) it's as easy as driving the fucking vehicles into a field.

Rape is even better for hiding infantry. Have you ever crawled through a rape field? Rape plants grow a natural thick roof of plant matter over head that completely hides you from view. It also protects against wind and kinda works against rain.

Yet training focuses almost exclusively on natural areas, or urban areas. Sure, it's more likely that combat will take place inside a city, because those are centers of population, production and power, but most cities are surrounded by agricultural land, and in order to get to a city (or defend it's perimeters) you will have to fight there.

What other crops and applications can you think of? Would smaller field with many different plants work better, or are large fields with monocultures the optimal solution?

Do you feel ballistics gel tests are BS?

These days expanding ammo is all the rage; however, those of us that actually hunt seem to see SOME of this ammo for what it is…….a gimmick

While I do believe most expanding 45ACP and 40 S&W ammo is more effective at stopping a threat than standard ball ammo, I seriously question some expanding 9mm loads and pretty much all expanding 380 loads. I've simply shot too many organic targets to buy any of this ridiculous marketing. Like a lot of hunters, I can straight up guarantee Buffalo bore's hard cast 380 or other non-expanding deep penetrating loads like Underwood's extreme penetration 380 ammo does a better job on man sized targets than expanding ammo.

I've posted in other threads before about my experiences shooting pigs in south Texas and Mexico as a kid and young adult. Basically anything short of a 44 mag with decent ammo out of a 6" revolver lacks any real stopping power without a CNS shot. While pigs are certainly tougher than humans, this certainly puts things into perspective.

Unusual/Bizzare/Experimental Weapons Thread

Let's have a thread for all the strange weapon systems that have been experimented with, regardless of whether they ended up working or not.

To start off, I present to /k/ the Bell YFM-1 Airacuda. Designed in the mid-30's as a dedicated bomber destroyer, the Airacuda featured design features that are nearly unique, although rightfully so. As you can see, the Airacuda had three seperate crew compartments, two located just fore of the pusher-prop engines, and a primary compartment in the central fuselage. The central compartment held the pilot, a copilot/navigator who also acted as a fire control officer and a radio operator who was also responsible for manning the defensive waist machine guns. In each of the engine mounted compartments sat a loader/gunner whose primary purpose was to reload the 37mm M4 autocannon turrets, although he could also operate them independently.

The issues with the Airacuda basically included every aspect of it's design. It was heavy, slow and maneuvered poorly, being slower than most of the bombers it was designed to hunt. The 37mm autocannons turned out to be somewhat less capable that anticipated, in addition to rendering the loaders compartment with smoke during firing. The engines were horribly prone to overheating, to the point that the aircraft was unable to taxi under it's own power and could only start it's engines when towed to the runway immediately before take-off. Speaking of the engines, the failure of either engine during flight would immediately send the aircraft into a spin. Finally, the Airacuda used an independent APU to power every electrical system on the aircraft. This meant that in the event of a failure of the APU, the entire aircraft effectively shut down, leaving the crew with almost no control at all, as the hydraulic, vacuum, fuel pumps, flaps and engines were all dependent upon it. Despite all this, only one death occurred in the Airacuda's two year career, when a pilot's parachute failed to deploy.

The Airacuda entered service in 1940, before being retired in March 1942. All 9 remaining examples were scrapped.

BASED DUTERTE GIBS FREE FUNS TO THE PUBLIC

http://archive.fo/szpZQ

The Philippines has vowed to give free guns to members of the public — so long as they promise to use them to fight drugs and crime.

President Rodrigo Duterte said he’s considering arming 42,000 community leaders, known as barangay captains, after consulting with the police and intelligence agency.

Martin Dino, the interior department undersecretary responsible for barangays, said handguns would be provided for free, or private purchases subsidized, but only for those not involved in illegal drugs.

Dino said: “The condition is that the barangay captain should fight drugs and crime. If he is conniving with criminals, he could be the one shot.”

Duterte has repeatedly said thousands of community officials were involved in the trade, without elaborating.

But last week he vowed barangays will be provided with the same legal protection as soldiers or police and they “will never go to jail” if they shot suspected criminals in the performance of their duty.

The president’s signature war on crime and drugs has killed thousands of people and caused international alarm.

Activists and Duterte’s political opponents say the campaign is overwhelmingly targeting users and small-time peddlers in poor communities and accuse police of systematically executing suspects, often based on weak intelligence.

The authorities reject that and say all those killed were drug dealers who put up violent resistance and left police with no choice but to shoot them.

The plan to arm civilians is supported by the association of barangay officials, according to its president, Edmund Abesamis.

Barangay captains without firearms were reluctant to report illegal drug activities, for fear of being targeted by gangs, he told CNN Philippines on Wednesday.

But activist group Rise Up for Life and for Rights said the government was obsessed with instilling fear among communities, rather than tackling the root causes of drug addiction.

A spokeswoman for the group said: “Arming the barangay captains is another foolish approach that would create power play among local officers on the ground.”

She added that communities had seen enough “tyrannical and fascist attacks” during Duterte’s war on drugs

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.

if you want to download videos from youtube but you don't know how to do it, look up youtube-dl and download it. you can download videos by invoking youtube-dl in a terminal or windows CMD/prompt/powershell. below is a good command to just get started:

if you'd rather output the file a different way, or you want to mess around with the options, then look at the documentation: https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/blob/master/README.md if you'd rather have lower quality, then make sure to change bestvideo+bestaudio/best accordingly.

Receiver materials

Receivers have evolved a lot over the past century.

We went from steel, to aluminium and plastics, and how we even have fiber reinforced plastics.

It is obvious that the receiver is one of the most important parts of any gun. It keeps all the vital parts of the firearm together and thus becomes a vital part itself.

Different weapons have different receiver shapes and functions. Take for example the AK. The receiver has a top cover that can be easily removed and allows easy cleaning and maintenance. While the AR has split it's receiver into two entirely separate parts.

Different guns are made for different purposes and are differently shaped, thus different guns require different materials and even different production methods for the same material.

ITT: Post guns that use different materials for the receiver and discuss their pros and cons.

Let's have a thread for guns and gun parts that aren't quite at the bottom of the barrel, but still affordable with much higher value for their price. Pics related are the optics I'm using on my gun right now, and they are just the shit.

>Holosun HE515cm-GR

Similar to an Aimpoint micro, but with an Eotech reticle. Also has a solar panel for pseudo-Trijicon auto brightness adjust based on ambient light (it helps with battery life too but the auto-brightness is the important part if you ask me). Battery life is on par with Aimpoints, and this model at least has the same durability ratings, and is made from the same material (7075 aluminum), as an MRO. There are hundreds of kiketube videos of Holosuns getting dropped and abused without issue, and with these "high end" models you get lifetime warranty for the housing and 10 years for electronics. Not quite Vortex levels of warranty but still damn good. It's pricier than other "budget" red dots at 340, but it's still a good deal cheaper than the big brands, and has features that they don't have like the solar panel. Apologies if I sound like a shill but I just think this is a damn good sight.

Fucking revolverfags. Why would you use such an antiquated design? It's not the fucking 19th century anymore. If you're serious about self-defense, you can only use a semi-automatic pistol with a capacity of at least 17 rounds. I get so mad everytime I see a revolverfag revolverfagging at the range. Why do they even bother to shoot them if you can't use them for self-defense?

Precision shooting

I and cant afford firearm ownership yet(no I am not under 18).

I am very fascinated by shooting and was lucky enough to buy a used 7.5 Joule (unregulated in my country) airgun fairly cheap.

I have 2.5 years of archery expirience and around 70-100 rounds shot in the military.

So I am beginner to shooting.

pic related is 10 shots. first the 5 on the left then the very scattered 5 on the right. (I felt my shoulder shaking at those last 7 shots)

its from 11.5m

Do you think I have potential?

How do you(expirienced shooter) practise?

De-industrialization wrecking Western militaries

For instance, most U.S. military solid rocket engines use a substance called Dechlorane. However, "there is no domestic supplier for this material; the sole source is Occidental Chemical in Belgium," warns the Department of Defense's FY 2016 Annual Industrial Capabilities report. "Even more concerning is that the pre-cursor to make Dechlorane came from China. The Chinese source can no longer produce that pre-cursor and so there is now no source for Dechlorane in the world."

As if the prospect of American weapons being dependent on Chinese-made parts is bad enough, there are already worries that Chinese-made electronics may be infected with computer viruses that would let China spy on or disable U.S. military, commercial and consumer products.

Much of the government’s annual $90 billion in spending on information technology is devoted to Chinese products, offering Chinese officials an opportunity to seed U.S. government offices with spyware and electronic back doors that could be exploited for cyberattacks, said Jennifer Bisceglie, chief executive of Interos Solutions, which conducted the study. “They are doing it,” Bisceglie said. “We’re not even making it difficult right now.”

Surp haul

Waddup kids

So I recently went on a surp spree (modern, in this case) and wanted to show my findings.

>two new-in-wrapper ifak pouches I made into homemade ifaks for $8 per pouch.

>one 3 day assault pack in (very) lightly used condition. It’s built very well and carries exactly what I needed for a car-trunk bag. $40

>Like-new LVL IIIA MICH 2000 MSA helmet with Team Wendy Suspension System. $180

For the record, I don’t consider myself a high speed oper8r at all which is why I could never justify an opscore helmet or some other lunacy. But a MICH 2000 at $180 with TW kit was kind of a “well shit, why not?” thing.

How’d I do, boys?

Luftwaffe Sword

Help wanted on how to get rid of rust on an old sword

Friend has it, and I want to restore it a bit. It has rusted/corroded a bit near base, but otherwise is in relatively good condition.

FYI, it was found behind the wall where my friend found the sword.

Feel free to ask about specs, etc

Just looking for advice, really. Gonna see my friend soon, so I want to see if I can get things done.

MQ-25 is an unmanned stealthy fuel tank

Pilots complained that tanker aircraft are too big and visible. Basically making the B-2 spirit unusable because it would need to be refueled by non-stealthy refueling aircraft within Soviet radar coverage. Also any retard can bring a tanker down with a simple 60s era SAM which completely disables air operations in an entire region for several days.

So someone thought a quick fix would be to make a drone thats basically an unmanned fuel tank, and follows a jet into combat.

Why are the anti-missile systems on ships multi barreled automatic cannons?

From what I understand the process of missile interception follows this process:

identify missile with radar

track trajectory and aim weapon

begin firing

stop firing after missile is destroyed

Why not use time detonated flak? There is a limit to missile maneuverability and a diameter of the projectile. A computer can easily calculate the potential space that the missile can occupy and set the timer on a flak shell to detonate with optimal shrapnel spread to ensure contact with the target.

Pistol Caliber Carbines

I've been eyeing up the Ruger's PCC recently (which is probably going to be unobtanium for the next several months without spending ludicrous amounts of money) and it got me thinking about which ones are and aren't shit.

From what I've seen, Hi Point carbines aren't too bad, but the plastic picatinny rail doesn't give me much confidence in any scenario outside of once a month shooting with added optics. The Cx4 seems good if you're a Berettafag because of mag interchangeability, but that's all it really has going for it besides weight. I've heard good things about mechtech Glock uppers, but don't own a Glock yet. They're the only good choice I've seen thus far if you want a 10mm carbine, though by that point you've got ~$600 for the G20/29 (assuming you don't have one) and another ~$500 into the upper.

Still not sure if I trust lel-kek's meme2000 to not explode in my face if I use anything even slightly hotter than factory 115 grain loads.

Self defense scenario thread

Say you're driving though the city one night with a female companion in your car and you're stuck in traffic. A large crowd of NASA scholarship recipients surround your car and attempt to spirit away your passenger. You could mag dump into the crowd but there are several issues with this. How do you defend yourself from being attacked from your driver door/window while shooting in the other direction. If the roads are blocked how do you escape? Going on foot would be nearly impossible. Unless you carry several crates of ammo in your car you probably don't have enough to shoot them all so you better hope that the mob disperses before you exhaust your ammunition or else you many be lynched by the survivors. And even if you do manage to escape you most certainly have to defend yourself in court.. At first glance this may seem like a hoe-in for you, but remember that discharged a firearm into a crowd of people. The defense may argue that some of the people you hit were not threatening your safety since they weren't touching your vehicle,you, or your companion. Not to mention since you are white probably and your assailants are black you may be facing off against the NAAC, SPLC and other such groups.

Space /k/olonization bread

I've always wondered what kind of advancements in space warfare the existence of permanent self-sustaining human settlements in outer space would bring to the table.

A pair of O'Neill cylinders with a population of 4 million whites at L4 that declared independence from (((earth))) could certainly manufacture and drop WMDs on earthlings without getting destroyed by traditional mutual assurance unless they're space rhodesians with little in the way of in-situ industry, being mostly dependent on UN mining kikes running the mass driver on the moon, but it wouldn't take much to wipe out the entire colony on the other hand.

If (((they))) decide not annihilate the colony but instead conquer it for space shekels then what would urban warfare inside a pressurized rotating cylinder 32km in length and 8km in diameter be like?
