American safe-investment superfighters that were never be.

F-15SMT/D:

>In 1975, Langley Research Center began to conduct sponsored programs studying two-dimensional thrust vectoring nozzles;[4]:44 government and industry studies of non-axisymmetric two-dimensional (2-D) nozzles in the early 1970s had identified significant payoffs for thrust-vectoring 2-D nozzle concepts.[4]:192 In 1977, Langley started a system integration study of thrust-vectoring, thrust-reversing, and 2-D nozzles on the F-15 with McDonnell Douglas. In 1984, the Flight Dynamics Laboratory, the Air Force Aeronautical Systems Division awarded a contract to McDonnell Douglas for an advanced development STOL/MTD experimental aircraft.The aircraft used in the STOL/MTD program[5] has flown several times since the successful STOL/MTD program completion in 1991 that used thrust vectoring and canard foreplanes to improve low-speed performance. This aircraft tested high-tech methods for operating from a short runway. This F-15 was part of an effort to improve ABO (Air Base Operability), the survival of warplanes and fighting capability at airfields under attack.

>The F-15 STOL/MTD tested ways to land and take off from wet, bomb-damaged runways. The aircraft used a combination of reversible engine thrust, jet nozzles that could be deflected by 20 degrees, and canard foreplanes. Pitch vectoring/reversing nozzles and canard foreplanes were fitted to the F-15 in 1988.[citation needed] NASA acquired the plane in 1993 and replaced the engines with Pratt & Whitney F100-229 engines with Pitch/Yaw vectoring nozzles.[6] The canard foreplanes were derived from the F/A-18's stabilators.

>Prior to 1991, when McDonnell Douglas ended its program after accomplishing their flight objectives, the F-15 STOL/MTD plane achieved some impressive performance results:[4]

>Demonstrated vectored takeoffs with rotation at speeds as low as 42 mph (68 km/h)

>A 25-percent reduction in takeoff roll

>Landing on just 1,650 ft (500 m) of runway compared to 7,500 ft (2,300 m) for the standard F-15

>Thrust reversal in flight to produce rapid deceleration

>Controlled flight at angles of attack up to about 85 degrees

YF-16CCV:

>The initial YF-16 prototype was reconfigured in December 1975 to serve as the USAF Flight Dynamics Laboratory's Control-Configured Vehicle (CCV) testbed. The CCV concept entails "decoupling" the aircraft's flight control surfaces so that they can operate independently. This approach enables unusual maneuvers such as being able to turn the airplane without banking it. The ability to maneuver in one plane without simultaneously moving in another was seen as offering novel tactical performance capabilities for a fighter. The CCV YF-16 design featured twin pivoting ventral fins mounted vertically underneath the air intake, and its triply redundant fly-by-wire (FBW) flight control system (FCS) was modified to permit use of flaperons on the wings' trailing edges which would act in combination with an all-moving stabilator. The fuel system was redesigned to enable adjustment of the aircraft's center of gravity by transferring fuel from one tank to another. The CCV aircraft achieved its first flight on 16 March 1976. The flight test program ran until 30 June 1977, and was marred only by a hard landing on 24 June 1976 that delayed testing until repairs were effected.

>The CCV program was judged successful and led to a more ambitious follow-on effort in the form of the "Advanced Fighter Technology Integration" (AFTI) F-16.

F-16VISTA:

>The F-16 VISTA testbed aircraft incorporated a multi-axis thrust vectoring (MATV) engine nozzle that provides for more active control of the aircraft in a post-stall situation. The resulting aircraft is supermaneuverable, retaining pitch and yaw control at angles of attack beyond which the traditional control surfaces cannot change attitude.[citation needed]

>The VISTA program was considered successful, but the thrust vector control (TVC) never made it into production fighter versions.

Crimea

Why didn't US try to stop Russian from annexing the Crimea?

American too scared to fight?

What would have happened if in early 2014 the US sent a task force to Crimea,

with the sole objective of freeing it from Russian forces?

I think that the US could have sent a carrier strike group to the Black Sea. There would of course be a battle with the Russian Black Sea Fleet, but, upon establishing control over the Black Sea, the US would use its carrier strike group to block Russian reinforcements from entering Crimea. From there, USA could use every last tool in the shed to destroy Russians in Crimea. Stealth bombers, all special forces units they have, paratroopers, marines, all kinds of missiles, prototype units, drones and so on. Eventually, despite many losses, the US would win. From the little I know, the biggest problems there would have been are naval warfare in the Black Sea (Russian submarines are dangerous, and the carrier strike group could be really fucked if anything went wrong), and Russian air defenses. Of course, that's not to mention the probability of escalation (Russian nuclear doctrine) and international outcry of a US-Russia war.

But that's just my ignorant opinion. What does /k/ think? Why did the US not use its military power to stop Russia from winning that crisis? How would a Black Sea battle between the US and Russia look like at that time? Would Russia have used its de-escalation nukes if there was an US intervention? And would the US win?

Apologies for poor English.

Powerlevels

Hello, I am Trainautist, you may remember me from such threads as "how to protect a train system" or "logistics of war".

Today I would like to touch on a subject that has been on my mind for a very long time.

Power, and it's military purpose.

As we all know, electric power is necessary to run 99.99999% of all production machinery. If your nation can't produce ammunition, food or anything else, you will lose any kind of war almost instantly. Not only will your soldiers either starve, be captured without ammo, or worse, but your population will suffer immensely, sine refrigeration/freezing has almost completely replaced pickling, drying, and salting as the main method of preserving food. Hostpitals would cease to function after a week or so, without electric pumps it would take ages to fill fuel trucks, or fuel trains to transport the diesel or gas to wherever it is needed for power production or fueling trucks/tanks/cars.

As you can clearly see, protecting the power network of your nation is one of the key goals of any defensive military plan, yet there are many ways you could permanently take out power structures.

There are exactly three points of failure in the modern power structure. The power lines, transformers, and power plants.

Let me begin with power lines, since they are very similar to train lines in how to defend them. You need regular patrols, possibly on bikes or on cars. It will eat up lots of your resources, but is absolutely necessary to keep your power network going.Taking out two or three large high voltage power posts using very little explosives, or just a metal saw and a truck, can lead to a total blackout in large areas, causing trouble and confusion.

You can always lay your power lines underground, but that bears a whole other set of risks. Underground lines may be a lot harder to take out, but damages are harder to detect and repair too. All it would take would be two guys with a shovel and some explosives. They dig a hole to your power lines, bust them up, and fill the hole again before running like a swarm of bees was after them. Even if your power lines are underground, you would still need to post guards or have patrols, but in longer intervals. The deeper they are (and the longer it takes for a saboteur to dig down to them) the fewer soldiers you need to put on patrol duty,but figuring out where exactly the damage was done will be a lot harder than with overground cables, since you can't just fly a helo along them to see where one of the poles has fallen over, or a cable was cut. You need men on the ground to walk along the line and see where the ground has been dug up and hastily covered again.

The next point of failure would be transformers, but those have already been discussed to death here. All it takes is a dude with some molotows and a vespa and an entire city is without power. Posting at least four armed guards (two asleep, two guarding at all times) would be an absolute necessity. They must also have backup on standby. Again, a helo with a squad on board, or just a truck with a siren so it can avoid traffic would be ideal.

However it would also be easy to have one guy with an RPG or MANPAD ready to take out the reinforcements before they arrive. At that point you would need to worry a lot more about why your own population wants you to lose the war that badly.

The third point of failure are the power plants themselves, and they are my biggest concern in a nation VS nation war. One good hit on a nuclear, coal or hydroelectric powerplant will not only halt power generation, but in the case of nuclear power plants and hydroelectric dams, also cause massive damage to the surrounding areas. Using CIWS, and a layered AA missile system would be a clear necessity, and require lots and lots of resources. Decentralized power production, like windfarms, or solar panels would work and solve some of these issues, but especially solar farms would suffer greatly under light fragmentation bombs/artillery.

What's /k/s opinion on this?

Shooting through snow and other logistics

>I saw a large mule deer buck shot with a 375 H&H using 300 grain Sierra BT's. The deer was standing @25 yards away, behind a fallen tree with a foot of new snow atop the fallen log. The bullet went through the freshly fallen snow, not hitting anything but snow, and stuck the deer in the lung cavity. When we skinned the deer we saw where the bullet had entered the deer sideways, aka keyholed, and the spent bullet was recovered on the opposite side unexpanded and had been flattened as if it had been laid flat on an avil and hit with a hammer. Just one incident doesnt make a pattern but an interesting example.

How does snow (or other material) affect a bullet?

Does the F-35 JSF really suck?

There's a boatload of propaganda on the Internet (AusAirPower, WarIsBoring, Pierre Sprey) about how the F-35 completely sucks:

* shit stealth, especially underside (bulges ruin flat profile)

* shit top speed (self-explanatory)

* shit maneuverability (loses angles even to an F-16)

* shit software (the same target renders multiple times when it's shared with friendlies)

If you ask me, the F-35 only exists so that the US can commercialize their fancy "5th gen" tech without selling the F-22 Raptor itself. But if the above list is actually true then the JSF is a failed project that no country should spend money on.

So what do you think about the F-35? Will its J-31 doppelganger eat it for breakfast?

>they have incredibly precise orbital artillery consisting of large metal rods that drop down from orbit and use a rocket booster to accelerate further beyond impact

>the ship is equipped with a laser defense system that can burn nearby satellites and target incoming projectiles

>because the aliens are so frail, they instead rely on remotely controlled drones to fight battles, these drones are battery powered and can operate continuously for 12 months

>these drones require communication with the mothership, meaning they need to establish a net of satellites around earth to communicate with them

>there is a limited supply of these drones, but if they secure a landing zone they do have the capability of building a factory for them

>the designs include large tracked vehicles, fighters comparable to current gen 5 planes, and various smaller vehicles intended to engage infantry or fight in cities

>if worst comes to worst for them the ship has 100 500kt nuclear warheads

I would go into MS paint, draw a sword, find some scrap metal, and make a sword objectively better than the average Jian, infact, I could attack a kitchen knife to a stick and it would be better than a Jian, thats how fucking useless this sword is.

Futuristic tanks and other vehicles

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.

Bullshit you have to deal with in your country

Since 1990 firearms regulation in Ireland has been absolutely out of control.

You have to have a firearms license to own pepper spray. Guess what? You're not legally allowed to use pepper spray outside your house. Not even if you're being mugged. It's a criminal offense to carry it, open or concealed.

In the last 27 years we've had over 20 additions or changes to firearms law, most of them further restricting their legality in a country where they're already highly difficult to obtain.

>have to join a gun club (this isn't apart of the law, but it might as well be)

>have to decide which one of the few legal guns you want to use

>have to train for that gun

>then have to apply to a licence for that gun

>have to list a valid reason for owning it

>self-defence isn't considered valid

>takes about two weeks to get a response

>if you're granted a licence you're finally allowed to get your gun

>but you have to store it in a safe at all times

>police will come by your house to check if you're storing it in a legal manner

>the law is so poorly written it's technically illegal to even bring the gun outside your house

>you have to apply for another licence if you want another gun

>fully automatics are illegal

>machine guns are illegal, even if they're semi-auto civilian models

>effectively all handguns are illegal

>"assault rifles" are illegal

>with a few exceptions, only shotguns and rifles are legal

What's some absolute horseshit you have to deal with in your country?

Pistol Caliber Carbine Thread

Ruger has announced the stupidly named "Ruger PC Carbine": a 9mm 10/22 look-alike takedown which, astonishingly for Ruger, will accept Glock magazines. At a probable ~$500 street price will this be the PCC to capture a vast untapped market between the niches of the richfag CZ Scorpion Evo 3 and the poorfag/nigger Hi-Point? Can it compete with the plethora of 9mm AR-15 variants? Or will the mid market pistol caliber carbine be demonstrated to be a faggot meme that no one will actually waste money on? Or maybe the only non-homosexual pistol caliber carbine option is a lever gun? Or a bolt action?

/k/ Spook Digging Thread: Northern Nevada Edition

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

https://archive.fo/6A38N

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IRL Star Wars thread

Space Warfare and anti-satellite thread

More and more countries are starting a space program.Recently, space has become something not restricted to the governments of world superpowers, and private corporations and smaller countries have taken on the huge task of putting something into orbit. Thus, Iran has a space program(and has succesfully launched sattelites into orbit on iranian-desgined rockets).

Israel also has a space program.

The only treaty about warfare in space is the Outer Space Act, which essentially says that no nuclear weapons can be deployed permanently in space. Other than that, its fair game.

And all of you fags should know about the air force's secret shuttle, the x-37b. I think it's five times, it might be in the middle of its 5th flight right now, not sure. But the air force wanted its own shuttle to recover satelites. However, i doubt that the air force has put weapons on this thing just yet; They probably have drawn sketches for a payload on this thing of satellite kill vehicles, lots of people think a laser is likely, but every flight they've said they're testing purely scientific things; usually telling us in general whats onboard. (last flight they were testing some sort of heat exchanger and deployed some small satelites)

There's actually a small community of astronomers dedicated to tracking this thing from the ground. Its a shitton easier than most things launched because it's easily recognizable (ppl did this with the shuttle, and the ISS is babys first satelite to track). Everytime it goes up, its exact orbital perameters are posted online on a few forums.

Also, im going to leave this here because i feel nobody here knows about it.

The skylon spaceplane is being designed as a single-stage-to-orbit reusable spaceplane that takes off from a (very long) runway, flys a unique and precise flight pattern, and can achieve orbit. The secret behind this idea is a hybrid rocket engine. Essentially, rather than carrying onboard oxygen for rocket power during atmospheric flight, it will carry a very advanced air intake and precooler, which is supposed to cool incoming air from around 1000 degrees to -10 (in celsius iirc) before it gets into the engine. The cooled air is then compressed with power recovered from the heat exchanger and put into a rather traditional rocket nozzle with the fuel and burned. When the air is too thin to get useful amounts of oxygen from it, the engine switches to onboard oxygen. The plane will also be able to fly at hypersonic, but still suborbital speeds and cruise on semi-ballistic trajectories in the upper atmosphere for long-distance travel. This thing will be able to cruise at mach 5 for 6 hours, long enough to fly 3/4 around the world.

Nothing i've read about space has gotten me more excited than Skylon. Nothing seems more plausible. The only thing that Skylon needs to fly is a proof-of-concept engine. they have made heat exchangers and precoolers for lab testing that work to specs, this needs more r&nd. But it seems like the next big leap in aerospace technology, and the most plausible/closest thing to us.

Space fighters soon. Mark my words. But what would a real-life space fighter like Skylon be equipped with?

Saudi jet shot down

>Houthi rebels have released video they claim shows the exact moment they shot down Royal Saudi Air Force F-15S over Yemen. The Iranian-supported militants appear to have at least tracked the jet using a repurposed FLIR Systems Star SAFIRE sensor turret, which features an infrared camera.

>On Jan. 8, 2018, the Houthis released the infrared video footage, which shows the FLIR Systems logo in the frame, via its Al Masirah television network. A separate statement from the group's Saba News Agency says their forces shot down the aircraft with an unspecified surface-to-air missile. The complete video also shows the sensor turret on an improvised ground mount. The F-15S fighter appears to increase speed and releases decoy flares before a projectile hits it, appearing to cause significant damage. The fate of the pilots is unknown at this time.

Prison For Air Rifle Silencer

I have a friend I have known for a long time. His name is Paul Gratton, and he is a small business owner. He's a single father with two boys, and he's been convicted and ordered to surrender himself at the beginning of February. The case # is 3:16-43-1. US v PAUL GRATTON. He tried to bring, not even an airgun, but an airgun silencer from Canada into the US and the (((j)))udge is treating it like an actual firearm. He's already been convicted but we want to try to ask the President to intervene and prevent a huge miscarriage of justice. If we call the hotline we can ask for a special prosecutor to oversee the case and correct this major injustice. He has done nothing wrong and his sons are going to be without their father.

We need to make a stand here. Obama appointees in the ATF are going after a case with little real basis in order to continue the USA Federal crackdown on weapons. If this is the time someone is going to serve for a mod for an air rifle, imagine what will happen once they start doing the same thing to everyone who doesn't cross every t and dot every i on their paperwork.

Script

Hello, I’m [YOUR NAME IN HERE]

I’m calling to ask the President to intervene and prevent a huge miscarriage of justice against Paul Gratton in a federal court in Nashville TN.

The case # is 3:16-43-1. US v PAUL GRATTON.

Paul is a small business man who works to insure the safety of many law enforcement agents. Paul’s a single father of 2 boys and he’s been convicted and ordered to surrender himself at the beginning

of February.

The Prosecutor continues after a year to withhold information that proves Paul was set up and entrapped by a government informant. The Brady violations are greater than those of the BUNDY case. The judge has refused to date to decide on post trial motions.

I’m calling because I wish for President Trump to order a stay of sentencing and to appoint a special investigator to look into the wrongdoings of federal prosecutor and ATF that committed wrongs against Paul.

Please intercede before 1st February. Thank you for your consideration.

Thoughts on the idea of FN FAL in FN FAL in 7.92x41?

The US push for the T-65 cartridge (that became 7.62NATO) and adoption of the M14 fucked over the Belgians (and the yanks themselves) far more than it fucked over the Brits.

The US needed the Belgians to vote in favor of adopting the T-65, and so the US promised the Belgians that they would buy FALs from Belgium, if Belgium voted in favor of the T-65. The Belgians agreed and suddenly 7.62mm NATO was a thing. But the yanks had never planned to actually buy the Belgian rifles, they were dead set on an M1-based rifle since they were sure it would be much cheaper to produce. You see the Americans were convinced that M1 production lines could easily and cheaply be modified to build the M14. To make sure the M14 got adopted they rigged the rifle trials against the FAL by using an incredibly shitty copy built by H&R using blueprints incorrectly converted to US-measurements.

They made sure the M14 had well over a year and an entire team to work out any problems with the rifle. The H&R team had less than 3 weeks and two guys. The H&R team was not allowed to actually attend the trials and tinker with their rifle, the M14 guys were. And then just to make sure the FAL-clone failed, the Army fucked over the FAL even harder by downright cooking the books on the trials report. Some of their cheating was incredibly obvious, for example they wrote that the M14 was more or less impervious to mud.

Well then it turned out that the M14 was pretty shit, the T-65 cartridge was overpowered for use in full auto rifles, and they never saved money by converting old M1 factories to building M14s since it was deemed nigh impossible and all the tooling for making M1 rifles was obsolete, worn out, and needed to be replaced anyway.

MOUT/siege warfare against pozzed mega-city

How would /k/ go about destroying a massive mega city? The city will be defended by various private armies with 10's of millions humans and robots as soldiers. The city's air defense will be composed of hundreds of hyper sonic missile batteries and lasers. The skies of the city will be swarming with thousands of drones of various sizes. The city's most devastating weapons will be the 30 orbital satellites armed with Kinetic Energy weapons.

You have 4.5 million genetically enhanced soldiers, 10,500 howitzers, 4500 mobile rocket artillery batteries, 25,000 tons of VX gas, 100,000 tons of chlorine trifluoride, 45 20 kiloton tactical nuclear missiles, 4,500 aerial drones capable of supersonic flight, 8,000 sub -sonic drones, and 2.8 million combat robots.

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.

USMC replaces AR-15 with a AR-15 with a piston

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2018/01/06/usmc-set-field-hk-m27-combat-rifle-part-infantry-kit-overhaul/

The Commandant of the United States Marine Corps (CMC) has stated his approval for an overhaul of the front-line infantry Marine’s gear – including the fielding of the Heckler & Koch M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle as a standard issue rifle, to replace the M4 Carbine. The move comes after considerable debate as to what the USMC’s next infantry weapon configuration should look like.

In an interview with Military.com in late December, Commandant Gen. Robert Neller confirmed that a decision had been made to move forward with fielding the M27 more widely within the infantry.

Every Marine in an infantry squad, he said, will receive the high-end rifle. And while not every Marine in a grunt battalion will carry the IAR, others outside of the squad will also be issued one.

“I don’t think mortars and javelin guys need the M27,” Neller said. But, he added, artillery forward observers, fire support teams, and even engineers might be good candidates for the weapon.

“I’m going to wait and see,” he said. “It’s not that much [money].”

Noguns on /k/

inb4 blogpost

Sup, /k/. I find myself in the position of being highly interested in reading about and discussing funs, but less inclined to actually go out to the range. I was until rather recently hasguns–details on how I lost 'em not relevant. While acquiring guns, I took autistic fascination with picking the "best" one (or AR part) for what I desired, and was really excited when I finally bought the thing. But when I actually took my toys out for a range day with a /k/omrade, I didn't enjoy myself. I convinced myself that I did for a while, because I had dropped a fair amount of cash into guns, but not once did I think to myself, "man, I wish I could be at the range right now." I only went when someone else invited me, like a social obligation. Once I realized this, I started selling off my collection and am now noguns again. Yet in spite of this, I'm more than a little interested in playing armchair general, discussing weapon designs, and calling anonoymous people fags over an Asiatic throat-singing forum. The hell's wrong with me?

I suppose this post really is useless besides being a blogpost, but fuck it. Don't have any friends who can relate to this and I'm sure as hell not giving my shekels to a shrink.

.270 WSM looks wicked-cool

Long story short the renters left a 30-06 round in their bedroom, and a .270 WSM in the hall-bathroom.

It inspires me, /k/. I want to build a gun for it. Specifically, an AR pattern gun because I have some familiarity for it and not building bolt-guns. Also there's not much in the Remington-700 80% market right now.

So in this thread I want to talk about weird guns. Not in, weird ergonomics because people be crazy am I right? Weird as in the 9mm AR15, the AK-pattern in 300BO, piston ARs, heck beautiful zip guns can apply for consideration.

KAK has a DPMS style bolt with magnum size and double ejectors. This should be enough to 'grab' the .270. Naturally we're looking at a custom barrel so I assume either an adjustable gas block, a pigtail gas tube (somebody online wrote of using 30" of pnuematic piping for his .300WSM AR10) or Kak, again, has a magnum gas tube, 2" longer than the rifle-length, which would require a custom drilling of the gas hole.

Still, the .270 could share bullets with my .277 WLV pistol I'm in the process of building. Lastly for my OP comments, the last picture. It's from Buffalo and is $50 cheaper than the unanodized glock-compatible 80% AR15 lower. Assuming I can find some decent 30rd colt-style magazines, is there any good reason not to choose colt-compatible 9mm ARs? I've seen a few old, and one new, glock<->STANAGwell adapters, but if I only plan on having one to three magazines would I really save enough to offset the overpriced glock-compatible lowers? Alternately, where's a good place to get inexpensive AR"9" 80%'s ? Tactical****.com has them for $100 with glock-adjustment-parts. Usually, and except when they don't. I'd be really embarrassed to get a package from them anyway.

Ron DeSantis (Florida 6) and Marco Rubio (Florida) are now considering legislation to repeal the NFA. Now we need to push this. It's much easier to get politicians on board with other people's legislation than to start new stuff, and other supporters will push the two of them towards introducing it.

Call the offices of your Congressman and Senators. Tell them you want them to co-sponsor this legislation (also Hearing Protection Act/House bill 367/Senate bill 59 and Concealed Carry Reciprocity/House bill 38). Calling is good because they have to spend staff time listening to you, and staff time is (very) limited. Better yet, visit your local office if it is local enough (you may need an appointment, call first). Email is lowest tier (but better than nothing) because it can be sorted by computers, who effectively have no limit, and minimize human eye time.

Average Small Arms Combat Range

A few days ago on /k/inder someone said something that had me thinking. It seems that everyone thinking the average engagement range is 200m.

Average engagement range is only 200m if we include stalingrad urban combat, gang executions and police engagements that happen after talking to the suspect. Average distances in actual wars we've had in the middle east are around 500m.

www.dtic.mil/get-tr-doc/pdf?AD=ADA512331

Also, key fact: We shouldn't equip our soldiers for "average combat distance" if we don't want them to die or call fire support precisely half the time. We should equip them for the maximum range at which the enemy can engage with the majority of his small arms.

Minimalism

Lately, I have been giving a lot of thought into what I can do without. What things can you condense down? Not many have porno mags anymore, people whack it on the internet for freeish. Most everyone around here has the do/k/ument, negating most physical media unless you're like me and enjoy the experience of a book. Most open source tablets and rpi clones can be run off of little solar power packs, and a USGI stove, mess kit and utensils work well for eating if you live alone and also hunt. There's a number of people who forgo gyms entirely and just do stuff like jogging and biometrics and achieve some pretty good results for little money.

You can grow your own food fairly well with not much, and you can hunt with even well loved cheap milsurp, with none but a dirtbike as your ride, and a comfy sleeping bag, hammock and tarp as your home.

So what about your guns?

Is there a set role for each of your guns? Is there double ups or triples of what could be done by one gun?

Could the guns themselves be smaller, lighter, better?

Could the caliber be condensed, or the role itself be eliminated in regards to your personal context?

Could your ammo selection be knocked down to just one round?

Could your reloading setup and gear be made smaller?

For a great number of people, I personally believe that if you lived in a wooded area, you could do very well for yourself having none but a shotgun of some kind, perhaps a small pistol or revolver as your carry.

If you live in the plains, it might be wise to simply own a rifle in a 7mm or .30 caliber; perhaps one battle rifle, or an ak pattern rifle?

It's well and good to have, love and cherish a gun room with a boner inspiring amount of rifles, with a personal museum of nuggets or k98s. But which one would you walk out that door with?

Not to mention that if a teammate stepped on an IED or something it takes triple the effort to drag his ass to CASEVAC and throw him on the stretcher. Imagine the hassle of removing and lifting the heavy gear piece by piece to patch up his wounds.

Simple Outdoor Home Defense Mechanism

Neighbourhood is right on the border of the ghetto, but still considered part of the "better economy" neighbourhoods. Obviously I keep the doors/windows locked on that side of the house/keep a gun nearby at all times while home, but the back door is sliding glass, so little good that will do me realistically when a cholo ends up breaking in because they smelled good food cooking when I had the back door open to let out heat. I figure I want to do something to stop people from walking on top of the rock wall and just using the fucking parking lot that's got shit tons of room just a foot away, and that would involve do first ask forgiveness later actions while limiting my chances of being sued. Figure if I can stop the behaviour for about two weeks, it'll naturally stop on its own for a few months. I have outdoor pets (well, "outdoor" in the spring/summer/fall), but they're smart so I'm not worried about my "traps" injuring them so long as I keep them simple and well-seen by animals.

Anyways, caltrops are obviously out of the question as those are get sued material and can be traced back to me if an investigation was launched. I was thinking of sticking up a chicken wire "wall" stapled to the house on the rock formation top side, but the HOA would bitch up a storm and I'd be found out if I tried anything after that. My current plan I concocted involves superheating and then soaking some nails/screws in vinegar before baking them so as to rust them and dipping them in rotten milk to get bacterial strains on them, and leave them in the similar colored rocks along a neighbor's part of the pathway late at night so as to not get the blame laid on me when someone steps on them. I'm thinking it will end the baviour preventing this matter from reoccuring when enough faggots get tetanus from stepping on them. Any suggestions for preventing this behaviour? I get paranoid in the first place, but I've had little niglets and spics steal shit off my back porch while I was going around the corner to unlatch the back door to put it inside in the past (and when I caufght them/smacked them/brought them to their parents, the parents went full chimp and threatened to sue if I ever smacked their kid again because he/she "dindu nuffin"). I'm looking at being able to try multiple methods, but if I do something too public, then the blame will be shifted on me if I try future more covert methods, so starting covert hence the nail idea. If it comes down to it I suppose I could put a spiked floor mat outside, but that would only serve to protect my back door, not the perimeter of brick/rocks between my back door and the wall. Rock area on the raised part is roughly 2.5 feet wide between the brick wall part and my house walls.

so for all intents and purposes, you get given one (1) tank of your choice designed and/or manufactured before 1945.

You are free to modify it with modern components but you cannot change major parts (superstructure, turret rung, suspension setup). You can change the turret only if you need to do so but do remember the strain of new guns is fuckhuge compared to WW2 era ones. You can also slap more modern things on it (eg atgms and ERA). Discuss how you'd use your tank in an active war zone.

For example:

I'll take an M22 locust, and switch out the gun for a Bushmaster Mk44. MILAN ATGM on the top of the turret, ERA on the front of the hull. basic electronics (ir detection, modern sight (IR, Heat and telescopic with

rangefinder). The engine would be swapped for a 6.0 LS V8, suspension reinforced to deal with the added weight.

As for using it, urban terrain is gonna be my play ground. Get close and personal with MBTs and slap them in the ass using the bushmaster. Small size and high speed means getting a hit is harder than it looks and being able to hide in buidings means other tanks passing by might just not see you.

No one said no / Serbian documentary about the Aerial Battles of 1999

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2E2MU4xvFU

The documentary is about MiG-29 Pilots flying to the defense of their homeland during the 1999 Aggression. After a solid ten years of sanctions, reserve parts couldn't be ordered to refit the jets, and most of the planes and missiles were out of working order. Or only partially working.

I've watched this movie many times, and i can practically quote it word for word. It's very painful every time i do watch it, as i'm even good friends with the sons of some pilots that lost their lives during it. And the heroic attempts of the people that full well knew they wouldn't be landing their planes again after they took off don't make it any easier.

But it provides good descriptions of the aerial battles, OPFOR strategy, and humanizes the pilots that most in the West only see as "kill marks".

Chicongo begs for UN intervention

So /k/, how would you take back occupied Chicongo? What contingency plan would you have?

https://archive.fo/Wd7Dg

CHICAGO (CBS) — Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went even further on Thursday, suggesting the United Nations perhaps send in peacekeepers in the face of what he called a “quiet genocide.”

Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities.

“I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,” Boykin said at O’Hare International Airport on Thursday.

Boykin said leaders in Chicago and Cook County have failed to protect many communities from violent crime.

“There is a quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities. Eighty percent of those who are being killed by gun violence are African American, and often killed at the hands of another African American,” he said. “So we must protect these population groups, and that’s what the United Nations does. They’re a peacekeeping force. They know all about keeping the peace, and so we’re hopeful that they’ll hear our appeal.”

Boykin said Chicago must “utilize every avenue” available to protect its people from gun violence, possibly including U.N. peacekeepers.

“They’ve been able to help in places like Africa and abroad, where they’ve sent troops in and sent forces in to help protect minority and vulnerable populations, and so quite frankly I think the same can be said for here in Chicago,” Boykin said. “I’m talking about physical security. I’m also talking about maybe suggestions for what we can do in Chicago to help protect our minority populations. We’re being, again, decimated by the violence that we see here in Chicago. I mean this is really a genocide, and we have to do something to stop it.”

Recent figures from the Chicago Police Department showed homicides and shootings were down through the end of November, compared to the same time last year, but it’s not enough for Boykin.

“I know that the mayor may tout the fact that the number of people being shot is down, and the number of people being killed is down, but let me tell you, we’ve had over 600 people killed by gun violence already this year alone. That is a huge number,” Boykin said.

Through the end of November, Chicago has had at least 620 homicides. While down significantly from last year, when there were more than 720 homicides through November, that’s still a significant increase from most of the past 15 years.

“In my community of Austin, we’ve had 450 people shot, and 80 people killed this year alone, and so we have to do more to protect these communities, and that’s what we’re going to do. If we can’t get it done here with the leaders of the city, the state, and the county working together to utilize their budgets to help protect these communities, then I have to appeal to a higher authority, and a higher force,” Boykin said.

The meeting at the U.N. has been in the works for more than a month.

“Quite frankly, we can’t wait until the mayor comes up with another 1,000 police to try to make the streets safer. Quite frankly, the people want to be safe right now in their homes and their neighborhoods, and we want to make sure that they’re safe,” Boykin said.

Boykin will return from his meeting in New York on Thursday night.

>same old low capacity in 1911's

>very beefy, heavy guns to absorb the 10mm energy, absolutely cannot conceal carry, feels like you're dragging a weight around OTB

>"conceal carry" 10mm like the glock 29 feels like it's about to flip out of your hands when shooting because of the recoil and the stumpy ass three-finger grip

>huge recoil, huge blast, huge noise, huge muzzle flip, follow-up shots make the .45 look agile

>ammo is scarcer than .357 sig

>the ammo that is relatively cheap @ 35-38 cents per round is FBI-load-tier. Real 10mm is expensive as fugg, you pretty much have to load this.

>absolutely incompatible with SHTF scenario

>basically it's a muh dick round

>the shills never question why it failed the FBI besides saying that even though all those students failed with the 10mm, they themselves are most certainly Rambo and will easily shoot the 10mm like Josey Wales slings pistols

>then they fucking make a video with a massive glock 40, and prop up on a rest the whole time and poke holes at paper 25 yards away and are like "FUCK YEAH, BITCH, YOU HAVE A SMALL DICK LOL. THIS IS A MAN'S GUN."

Military arms channel guy basically did "muh dick" on the 10mm and did the obligatory shitting on the .40 because it's not long enough lol. He then said, laughably, that the FBI would have made better sense going with the .45acp, which is just wrong. The .45 acp has shit penetration, and militaryarmschannel guy said it is precisely the lack of penetration in the type of 9mm bullet the FBI was using that fucked their shit up. So he's completely inconsistent and looks retarded. James Yeager is another guy that is all wrong on the 10mm and is shilling it recently. He started out shitting on the 10mm and all high pressure rounds as he was triggered by the .40, which is a common thing among 9mm guys, they have a massive inferiority complex towards .40 so they shit their pants whenever they hear one. He said .45 acp guys were stupid because they think their dicks are big because they use a big round, and then he criticized .40 guys for having small dicks (he actually said all this) and now he's shilling 10mm because it makes your dick big when you use it, no shit. So he can't figure out of a gun makes your dick big but is most certainly sure that this is sometimes bad or good, depending on how triggered he is.

I am at the point where I think all these youtube gun guys are pretty fucking stupid, their main use being showcasing guns and rallying the troops to defeat kike legislation, but when it comes to actual guns they are like 8th graders, just saying whatever makes them excited at the moment and looking truly stupid. And they all suck Jeff Cooper's dick, who was really just a glorified Fudd.

Reasons to Ban All Guns in the United States:

>Curb crime

In 2011 alone, a total of 478,400 fatal and nonfatal violent crimes were committed with a firearm, as noted by the Special Report on Firearm Violence, 1993-2011, published in May 2013 by the Bureau of Justice Statistics. The same report states that a shockingly high 8% of all violence was committed with a firearm. If firearms had been banned in 2011, the most recent year in the report, there would've been 25% fewer robberies and 69% fewer homicides.

>Negligible impact upon self-defense from crime

According to the above-mentioned report, only 0.8% "of victims in all nonfatal violent crimes reported using a firearm to defend themselves during the incident" in the years 2007-2011. This included instances where the victim "threatened" their assailant with the use of a firearm as well as occasions where a firearm was actually fired in self-defense.

>Gun-free zones work and must be extended to encompass the entire country

From 1993-2011, only 0.6% of firearm violence was committed in gun-free school zones. Compare this with 19.3% of said incidents occurring in the home or lodging of the victim, 22.7% occurring near the victim's home, 8.8% at a commercial establishment, and 22.9% in public spaces. In fact, the notoriously gun-free school zones had the lowest incidence of firearm-related violence out of any classification in the BJS's report (which spanned nearly two decades) and that's even when you include crimes that occurred when the victim was "on school property, on the way to or from regular sessions at school, and while attending or traveling to or from a school-sponsored event."

>Increased citizen reporting of violent crime

After nonfatal crimes involving firearms, 31% of those who did not report it did so for fear of reprisal; compare this with just 5% of violence that didn't involve a firearm. Conversely, 36% of victims of non-firearm violence were able to resolve the situation without involving police, compared to just 12% of firearm violence victims. A shocking 27% of firearm violence victims reported that "police could not or would not help," while only 16% of non-firearm violence victims said the same.

Wouldn't having a thermal camera on the gun and a flashlight on the helmet make more sense than having a night vision device on the helmet and a flashlight on the gun? It's easier to switch between "normal" and "enhanced" vision that way, and you mostly need the later to observe movement at a distance and to aim the gun itself. Also, having a small light on your helmet all the time seems to be better than putting on and off a heavy night vision device. Moreover, a thermal camera is useful even during daytime, especially if the enemy doesn't mask their thermal signature.

It just occurred to me, that there are only very few types of cocking handles that can actually be ambidextrous.

Basically, you could have a "pumpgun" style charging, a "lever action" type of charging, a G3/FAL type of charging, a G36 type of charging or an AR type of charging.

The "pumpgun" style of charging would connect a handle below the barrel to the bolt. By pulling the "pump" back, you would pull the bolt back and run the action. The handle would abslutely have to be non-reciprocating, since anything else would make holding the rifle impossible.

The Lever action connects the bolt to a lever near the trigger. The same hand that pulls the trigger must perform the charging action. Again the handle would need to be non reciprocating, or it would rip the shooters fingers off. I have no real experience with lever action guns, so I can't make any comment on pros and cons for this one.

With G3/FAL type f charging I mean a charging handle that is forward of the magazine, and has a handle on the 6 and 9 o'clock position. This has the advantage of being out of the way of the shooter. Such a handle can be reciprocating or not, since the shooter never gets anywhere near it when shooting.

The G36 style is one of my personal favorites. The handle is on top of the bolt, directly mounted onto it. It can be produced reciprocating or not, but because the handle automatically flips back to the inside (or doesn't protrude at all, like in the early version of the AR-15), it doesn't get in the way of the shooter.

This however requires a carrying handle, to protect the handle from accidental charging, and keep things out of the way of the charging handle path.

The AR style is similar to the G36 style, but the handle is mounted behind the main sights block. It must be non reciprocating, since it would otherwise punch the shooter's face every time the gun is fired. It is also hard to cycle the gun while pointing the gun at a target.

Am I missing some method here? Keep in mind I only mean AMBIDEXTROUS methods of charging the gun. Yes, a lefty can switch hands and use the gun the same way a proper human being can, but to keep it simple let's focus on true ambidextrous designs here.

Which charging handle is your favorite? What pros and cons do you see with each design?

DIY Weaponry Thread

Discuss how to do it right, what to do it for

I want to hear your ideas on building, bootlegging, modifying and inventing weapons

Any type

I particularly would like to learn to craft a pressure cooker bomb and other various explosive devices for traps to be employed for purposes of home defense and destroying deer that wander the wrong way.

Let's also discuss why our favorite guns are good, why the do what they do, and gunsmithing as an art.

Priorities

Every time I get a new job I usually nearly burn all of the first paycheck on a gun, but I can't decide if I should prioritize fun or a practical upgrade. Basically its either a Scorpion for the fun factor or getting a AK74. Already have an AK in 7.62 but lets be honest a 5.56 or 5.45 is way more practical.

How do the rest of you usually prioritize your purchases? Full setup for the worst case scenario first or sprinkle in some fun in there.

I've been wondering. What was actually wrong with the 'Plan 1919' interwar years idea of splitting armoured units into infantry tanks (heavy vehicles designed to open a gap in enemy lines) and cruiser/cavalry tanks (medium tanks to speed through the gap and wreak havoc behind the lines). I know it's probably not at all relevant in a world where the odds of countries invading/warring with each other directly seems to drop annually, but why were the armies of the cold war not focused around this idea? Or have I just not read enough and they actually were? I just always thought that the Cold War saw the birth of the MBT - muh muultiroooole! in tank form.

If this question is not enough to sustain a thread (and kill another) on its own, then what are the relative pros and cons of specialised vs general engineering/doctrine?

Things that are wrong with the Marine Corps- The Master List

Behold! The master list of everything that is wrong with the Marine Corps. We will take in all feedback and continue to build on this list over time. Keep in mind, that some of the things on this list are there for comedic purposes.”

Also, most of these actually pertain to DoD in general, and not just the MC.

Without further delay, here is the current list:

1) Over-indulgence in esprit de corps: We spend so much effort congratulating ourselves for being Marines, but too little on asking how to ensure that distinction matters. We have this attitude of “I’m a Marine, I made it” as opposed to “How good can I possibly be? Am I what my country needs today and tomorrow?” Spoiler alert: country doesn’t need 18 year olds with rifles to storm beaches. We BADLY need a lightweight, amphibious raid force from the sea, usually operating at company level and below.

2) Field Days: The idea of a married SNCO that doesn’t have to live with this bullshit coming into my room and telling me it’s unsat.

3) MCIs: Seriously, has anyone ever taken one of these classes and not cheated? I once went to my Company Clerk and asked him how to get a proctor for an MCI Test because I wanted to do it legitimately, and he just looked at me with this dumbfounded stare for a few seconds before telling me that he had no idea how to do it and I should just cheat like everyone else. Unless your future college accepts MCIs for credit, they’re practically useless.

4) Mandatory Fun Days: Nothing says “building camaraderie” quite like being forced to spend even MORE time with the same people that you work with and live with on a daily basis; and then getting chewed out by some NCO or SNCO because your belt (in your civilian clothes no less) extends past the buckle to the right, instead of to the left.

5) Pro/Con Marks: I sure that no one in the entire Marine corps knows how to properly rate their Marines’ Proficiency and Conduct Marks. So, even though there are a pair of very simple charts that tell NCOs and SNCOs what ratings to assign, the whole process devolves into a popularity contest.

6) Fitreps: Pretty much the only way to get promoted past the rank of Sgt is to make sure you have a Fitness Report that sparkles like a diamond. Unfortunately, that usually means being adept in finding ways to take the credit for your unit’s successes while shifting the blame for failures onto your subordinates. Then these same SNCO’s have the guile to talk about their “superior leadership abilities”.

7) Illiteracy of SNCOs.

8) Illiteracy of just about everyone.

9) Decreasing standards just to make people pass schools.

10) Professional reading list.

11) The prevalent sexism. “Hurr durr, she sucked dick to get promoted.” C’mon. It’s the 21st century. Grow up.

SCOUT OPTICS

I just got an optic mount for my mosin, it's a locally produced mount that goes on the rear sight and does not alter the rifle in any way(sadly weaver style spacing on the rail but who cares). I want to put some kind of optic on it. I was originally just going to buy a 20$ red dot for memes but I am starting to like the idea of actually using my highly accurate ex-sniper nugget as a long distance rifle. Ive been looking at long eye relief scopes but they all seem identical. Does anyone have suggestions on optics to consider for a mosin(really any scout style rifle tbh).

also what is that bag thing that you put on your stock to raise your cheek weld called? I'm assuming Im going to need to get one regardless of how low i can get my rings.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/38/text < THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE NIGGERS

Now the link alone is a wet dream. It could be the first major federal move in favor of the 2nd amendment since 1934. This would force states to recognize carry permits and treat them like drivers licenses no matter what. The problem is this:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4477/text

Now you ask, why is this a problem? It's because of pic related. Kikestein and Cucker managed to combine them and voted to pass it in committee. It still needs to pass senate, and go to reconciliation, but it is - for obvious reasons - a major problem. I'm sure once the full text is available it will give anyone reading it cancer, but just reading pic related is bad enough.

So here's what we should do about it. Spam everything. Everyone. In the next post I will have a nice little template detailing to the rep you choose to send it to (feel free to modify it as you want/need, or to just ignore it enitrely. I'm not your mother. I don't make you do shit.) telling them to not allow the amended reciprocity act to pass. It is cancer.
