First female F-16 demo team commander relieved of duty after two weeks

Capt. Zoe Kotnik, whose call sign was SiS, was announced with much fanfare as the first female pilot to head the F-16 Viper demonstration team on Jan. 29. Labeled the real life "Wonder Woman" at the ceramony, she was relieved of command Monday due to a loss of confidence in her ability to lead and command.

POOPERPOWER RISING

LOCKMART REVEALS NEW F-21 FIGHTER ONLY FOR INDIA

>Lockheed Martin offered India on Wednesday a new combat jet to be made locally, the F-21, in an attempt to win a large military order worth more than $15 billion.

>The U.S. defense firm had previously offered its F-16 fighter used by countries around the world for the Indian air force’s ongoing competition for 114 planes to be made in India.

>But Lockheed, unveiling the plan at an air show in the southern city of Bengaluru, said it was offering India a new plane configured for its needs.

>It would carry technologies from its fifth generation planes, the F-22 and the F-35, the firm said.

>“The F-21 is different, inside and out,” Vivek Lall, vice president of Strategy and Business Development for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, said in a statement.

>The company will build the plane in collaboration with India’s Tata Advanced Systems, the firm said.

Best subcompacts for concealed carry

I'm a complete beginner (no ban) about to start the process to get a gun license and training in my shithole spic country to protect myself from Venezuelan immigrants. I've been reading lists of "the best concealed carry guns" but they vary a lot and have too much of a shilly vibe to them. Articles comparing models always favor the brand that the author admits to be a fan of. There doesn't seem to be that much in the way of an objective choice: perhaps modern firearms are so perfected that it doesn't make much difference?

My criteria are simple:

1) 9mm for ammo price and availability purposes

2) 10 or so bullet magazine for fear of running out

3) Small size for concealment

I'm leaning towards the Glock 26 Gen 4 or 5. I do not know if this is a bully-worthy choice. I need some advice.

Would having them glued to trauma pads/having trauma pads behind them somewhere have the same rib saving effect as in a normal armored vest?

Great question! Let's discuss various ways that you, John Q. Citizen, can take on vehicles.

Since modern vehicles are particularly defended from underneath against IED's, would it be easier to drop some thermite on top and let it burn through? How easy would it be to run up to a tank if the quarters were close enough? Also, do czech hedgehogs work against modern vehicles, or have they been designed to shove them out of the way?

Media report German KSK special forces commando suspended for right-wing extremism

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

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

"Missing" Army Manual

I was looking through the US Army Publishing Directorate site for cool spook manuals that I hadn't heard of, and I found pic related. The interesting thing about this one, TM 31-210-2, is that as far as I can tell, there are no online versions of it. This is in stark contrast to the other two "Unconventional Warfare Devices and Techniques" publications, which are both widely available as physical and digital copies (.pdfs related)

The only library I could find that had this "missing" publication is the Australian War Memorial Library in Canberra

Washington sheriffs refuse to enforce new gun control laws.

https://archive.fo/ehYxb

https://www.apnews.com/b186ce346d2d446babceaf15fec68e6c

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

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

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

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

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

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

Electric reactive body armor

From what I can tell, the way that electric armor works is that when a projectile penetrates the outer panel, which is connected to the ground wire, falls back to the back panel, connected to the hot wire, at the speed of electricity, where the projectile connects with both of them and is arc welded into plasma/debris, which then bounces off the hard armor behind the panels. This seems like a relatively simple concept, but so far its only been tested on tanks as experimental armor (as far as we know). The real question is if this could be compacted into deflecting small arms fire with the armor being worn by an individual, using a suit that has a light enough battery to carry in it while still providing enough power to melt the projectiles. If this is possible, it would be less like larpy power armor and more like a HEV suit that reduces damage when it has enough power. The rest of the features are another topic, but if its this simple, it seems like someone in his garage could make at least an example of this working.

3 percenters ally with Communists to deplatform racists

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/03/three-percent-far-right-leftwing-gun-groups

A dialogue has been established between the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club (PSJBGC), an armed leftist community defence group, and Three Percent of Washington (TPW), a rightwing pro-gun patriot movement group. In January, in the wake of a coordinated drop of racist leaflets in and around Tacoma, Washington, that dialogue bore tangible fruit. The group that dropped the leaflets, Patriot Front, was formed in the aftermath of the murder of a leftwing counter-protester in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. It split from Vanguard America, the group with whom the murderer marched, following prolonged infighting and feuding.

PSJBGC and other anti-racist groups collected the flyers and dumped them on the doorsteps of Patriot Front members and a local tattoo shop with far-right sympathies. As they did so, TPW posted a surprising and supportive message to its Facebook page. It read: “ATTENTION PATRIOT FRONT!!! III% is coming for you. Apparently you missed the part about WE WILL DEFEND OUR COMMUNITIES.” The message also said: “Racists like you deserve no platform. You disgrace the word patriot.”

The TPW leader, Matt Marshall, said the post attracted angry comments and threats from white nationalists. “It was removed after it was reported due to some of the comments,” he said. He also claimed that the FBI called him regarding the threats and said his group was planning an updated and expanded statement which would include other white nationalist groups. Duke Aaron, spokesman for the self-proclaimed “big tent” leftist PSJBGC, said he had known the TPW statement was coming. Before the statement went up, he said, he got a text from a TPW member. When he saw what it said, including the part about no-platforming fascists, he said he “was pretty happy with that. It’s a big shift.”

THE MATTIS MYTH

Secretary of Defense Mattis might be the first cabinet official to have his job thanks to Facebook memes. While cool Mattis quotes became fodder for veterans and their boosters he became a legend. A legend created by Mattis himself. Military leaders historically used the press before to achieve psychological aims at home and abroad. Napoleon so deftly controlled his image that disasters like the Egyptian campaign were sold as victories at home. The problem with propaganda is that it is an omnidirectional weapon that harms friend and foe alike. Unlike many famous generals in history Mattis has never won a war, nor waged a decisive campaign. He found victory in the minds of the American people by creating a legend based upon his selflessness, standards, and intelligence. When you look closely you find that all of these were overhyped and distorted. Mattis’ story remains essentially unchallenged. I believe that no public figure is above scrutiny and I write this in the spirit of openness and accountability.

On Christmas day of 1998 General Krulak was delivering cookies to the unlucky Marines who had guard duty in Quantico, VA. He was surprised to learn that then Brigadier General Mattis was the duty officer. Mattis explained that he took the shift from a young Major so he could spend time with is family. It’s a story of self-sacrifice and kindness that warms the heart. Until you start to look. First off Mattis is a lifelong bachelor. You can’t really say that you’re sacrificing your time when you have nothing better to do. Second General Krulak delivered cookies every Christmas which means that Mattis knew his boss would see his kind gesture. What at first glance is a selfless act came at no personal cost to Mattis and gained the favor of his commander.

Tom Ricks is an influential author, reporter, and columnist for national security affairs. His books are best sellers and he frequently contributes to such high profile publications as Foreign Policy Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Washington Post. In “The Generals” he laments the American military’s refusal to fire generals for incompetence. He cheerfully approved Mattis’ firing of 1/1 commander Colonel Joe Dowdy as a return to the standard of accountability.

Dowdy’s regiment encountered unexpected resistance from the Fedayeen Saddam in the city of Al-Kut. The Fedayeen were loyal to Saddam personally they operated as stay behind guerrillas. The Fedayeen fought the initial invasion of Iraq more effectively than the Iraqi Army or Republican Guard and were the first major force in the subsequent guerrilla war. The CIA reported the capabilities of the Fedayeen, but bureaucratic processes devalued this intelligence for the invasion plan. No invasion plan considered the Fedayeen at all.

Generals Mattis and Kelly were disappointed that Colonel Dowdy wasn’t moving as fast as the plan demanded. When he couldn’t complete his fighting on schedule Mattis relieved Dowdy of command. For added humiliation Mattis ordered Dowdy to surrender his pistol. This reflects poorly on the competence and character of Mattis. Mattis is a voracious reader who served during the abortive reforms of commandant Al Gray should have known the difference between a command push and a recon pull. Reviewing the doctrine of maneuver warfare reveals that unplanned delays, like what Colonel Dowdy encountered, are both inevitable and opportunities for tactical maneuver by adjacent units. Mattis’ inability to grasp the intelligence on the ground made a mockery of his intent to be a general that briefed his staff. His unwillingness to make a bold tactical adjustment reveal incompetent officership and lazy scholarship. Tactically the firing was a blunder. Morally the firing was cruel. By stripping Colonel Dowdy of his pistol in a hostile country Mattis’ revealed a deep contempt for his subordinate as a person. The fact that this incompetent and immoral act added to the Mattis mystique is as deep an indictment of his boosters as himself.

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

Florida Monkey Wars when?

What’s the best anti-monkey load out?

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

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

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

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

/K/ommando kills qouta during confiscation

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kevin Douglas Limbaugh documents 011219

http://archive.is/HPhtd

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

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

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

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

Should I buy this used Kalashnikov USA ak-47 for $500?

I've been wanting an AK and this is right in my budget. I don't need anything fancy, I just want to plink beer bottles mostly. That said, I don't want to buy a piece of crap that's going to have awful accuracy where it can't hit the broad side of a barn and break in less than a year.

I don't have any experience with AKs, and much experience in general with semi auto rifles. I did work for a company that made rifles but it was on the AR platform. I've almost exclusively shot old bolt action Mausers growing up because that's the only thing my dad likes.

So yeah. Any advice for how I should assess the condition of this thing would be helpful. It doesn't look like it's been used very much, or if it has, its been refinished. Is this going to be about the same as a wasr (which is bottom of the barrel from what I know) or is this company better? Someone has also suggested I get a Ruger mini-14 instead for a similar price

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

> Reliability of a pump

> 20 round magazine available

> SBR length without it being an SBR

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

< can't use short shells

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

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

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

Important mod:

> Folding "brace" (stock) & pistol grip

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

Don't forget: Buy the 20 round mags!

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

Police shut down several roads in the area, but all roads have been re-opened.

Officers are searching but have not found any firearms yet. A crisis negotiation team and SWAT team were brought to the scene as a precaution.

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

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

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

Defence against laser weapons

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

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

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

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

US announces suspension of nuclear arms treaty with Russia

>Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday that the US is suspending the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, a key pact with Russia that has been a centerpiece of European security since the Cold War. "For years, Russia has violated the terms of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty without remorse," Pompeo said, speaking from the State Department. "Russia's violations put millions of Europeans and Americans at greater risk." "It is our duty to respond appropriately," Pompeo said, adding that the US had provided "ample time" for Russia to return to compliance.

>The long-expected suspension, which has raised concerns about a renewed arms race with Moscow and put European allies on edge, goes into effect on Saturday. Pompeo's announcement starts a 180-day clock to complete withdrawal unless Russia returns to compliance with the 1987 agreement. President Donald Trump and his senior officials had been signaling for months that they were ready to pull out of the INF treaty, which the US accuses Moscow of violating since 2014.

>'Full support'

>"The United States has fully adhered to the INF Treaty for more than 30 years, but we will not remain constrained by its terms while Russia misrepresents its actions," Trump said in a statement Friday. "We cannot be the only country in the world unilaterally bound by this treaty, or any other." Russia and the US are the only two parties to the treaty, but it significantly affects European security. The ground-based nuclear tipped cruise missiles covered by the bilateral agreement can fly between 310 to 3,100 miles, making them a threat to Europe, where officials have unanimously backed the US decision, even as they consider their next steps and admit having little to no optimism that the treaty can be saved.

>In a statement, NATO said America's allies "fully support" the US decision because of Russia's threat to Euro-Atlantic security and its refusal to provide any credible response or take any steps towards full and verifiable compliance. NATO urged Russia to use the next six months to "return to full and verifiable compliance to preserve the INF Treaty."

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

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

The two suspects who survived were taken to a hospital.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are responsible for finding the means to develop and produce all equipment of the armed forces of a regional power.

This is limited to military, not civil industry, though some overlap is inevitable.

You may provide as much or as little information as you like although the King/Duce/Tsar/Führer/Supreme Leader is particularly interested in your views on the following:

>What balance should be struck between private and state run industry?

>Should R&D be handled by the private or public sector?

>If private industry exists, should the state keep them afloat if they encounter financial difficulties?

>How heavily centralized should factories be? (As in physical location, do you disperse in shadow factories or keep it all together for efficency?)

>Are you concerned about sabotage or air raids, and if so how do you propose we handle them?

>How do you retain skilled engineers during the 'off cycle'? (ie. between procurement cycles)

>How do you avoid retards getting emotionally attached to an idea that lacks real merit. (Cavalry is still relevant!!!1!)

>How do you ensure cost effectiveness of equipment?

>How do you avoid mission creep?

2. They are a former Soviet country considering joining NATO, so western equipment is preferred but not required.

I'll start.

200 F-15X (approx. 95m each, 18b)

60 A-10C (20m each, 1.2b)

Implications of NY Gun Control Supreme Court Case?

What will this actually lead to /k/?

>Justices to review New York gun rights case

>In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to have a handgun at home for self-defense. Two years later, the justices made clear that this right also applies against state and local governments. Since then the Supreme Court has repeatedly declined to say anything more about how far states and cities can go in restricting gun rights, but today it granted a plea to weigh in, this time in a case from New York City.

>The request for review came from the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association and a group of gun owners who live in the city. They were challenging the city’s ban on transferring even licensed, unloaded guns anywhere outside the city limits – including to a weekend home or shooting range for target practice – restrictions they describe as “draconian.” After the lower courts rejected their challenge and upheld the restrictions, the NYSPRA and gun owners went to the Supreme Court.

>Today the justices granted review in the case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York. The Supreme Court’s calendar for April was already full before last week’s conference, so the new grant likely won’t be argued until the fall. The justices’ eventual ruling in the case could stick to the relatively narrow question of whether the city’s law is constitutional, or it might shed light on a broader and more consequential question: whether the right to have a gun extends outside the home. Either way, the court’s opinion in the case probably won’t come until the spring of 2020.

Climate Change Culling Weapon

We all know, Earth is past the “Point of no return” when it comes to climate change.  In 2016, we reached 405.1 PPM of CO2 in the atmosphere,which is set to raise the global temperature 2 degrees Celsius by 2035, or sooner.  All scientists agree this is the point where CO2 levels are so high it throws the whole balance of the climate cycle into MAD chaos; making it more difficult to predict climate changes, causing sea levels to rise, glaciers to melt, severe tropical storms, drought and flooding.  The worst part is scientist have been warning against our self-destructive behavior since 1992, and as a society we have done little to help!    

 

We also know that movies (aka – Hollywood) mimics reality, so the horrible truths in this world can be slowly socialized into acceptable practices.  There are now two movies which I believe are bringing a new reality to the forefront as part of a ‘climate change culling’ as initiated by the Government.  The first movie is “The Happening” (2008) and the second is “Bird Box” (2018). Both movies speak to a “wind-like presence” that causes people to kill themselves.  It seems ‘coincidental’ the movies were released 10 years apart, as we are now on the verge of killing off Earth itself.   

 

The Government already has the technology to vaporize a deadly poison (like Ricin) and then weaponize it by attaching it to a timed explosive device. We also know LSD can cause massive hallucinations, which if given in an overdosing amount can cause people to kill themselves.   You put these two technologies together and you have a VERY deadly WMD.  What if the Government know this?  What if the Government plans to use these technologies as a ‘culling’ to thin the herd that is society; to “save” humanity?  What if the Government has already starting testing? How many of us out there have had people we know die unexpectedly, for no reason at all?  What if underground ‘bunkers’ have already been built to save the ‘chosen’ (leaders of the world, ultra-wealthy, professions, physicians, engineers, etc.)  Thus leaving the rest of us on our own.  Finally, the real question here is, what will be the first city, or small town the Government will deploy this WMD to?   OR really is this why Trump has befriended Putin and we are pulling out of Syria?  Is that where it will be tested?  The greater good of the Earth holds in the balance and the Government knows something must be done to save it.  It is only a matter of time before the culling begins.

AR-10 thread/PA-10 Review

A few months back I bought a PSA PA-10 for around $650, along with an SWFA SS Scope and an SWFA SSALT mount for around $350. Overall I'm happy with the purchase but I encountered a few issues.

<Current parts on the rifle

>Sprinco Red spring

>Brownells h3 buffer

>CMC 3.5 lb flat trigger

>AR-STONER Muzzle brake, 3 port

>SWFA SS 10x42 Scope

>SWFA SSALT One Piece Mount

>Hogue overmolded grip

>Magpul rubber M-lok inserts

Everything else is stock PSA parts, although I'm probably going to stick an MFT minimalist stock on it (The PSA stock is very loose)

>Lower shipped with an H buffer and a spring shorter than a 5.56 rifle spring

I run an H2 buffer and carbine spring in my 5.56 carbine, and my 5.56 rifle has a spring longer than the PSA. This is an issue, .308 is a big boy round, and it needs a big boy buffer system. I replaced these with an H3 buffer and a sprinco red spring. These worked great at the range, so I know that the H buffer and mystery spring were too light. Another issue was the buffer tube length

The PSA buffer tube was too long, and allowed the BCG to strike the buffer threads, do not shoot your PA-10 out of the box

This is a big issue, PSA uses their own proprietary buffer length, which is supposed to be similar to the Vltor AR-10 tube, which is deep enough to allow the use of Ar-15 buffers, instead of the shorty .308 buffers. The solution is to use one to two quarters as spacers in the buffer tube, to prevent overtravel of the BCG. I also had another unrelated issue with the buffer tube, the piece that retains the buffer detent chipped off, allowing the buffer detent to pop out. This doesn't impact the function of the rifle, but makes disassembly a little more inconvenient.

<Accuracy

The gun is about 1 MOA, I'll post some groups. (These were shot after I had already warmed up with about 25 rounds and zeroed the scope) The groups were shot with monarch steel cased 145 grain FMJ. The groups were measured from center to center.

<Reliability

I used monarch 150 grain soft points and monarch 145 grain steel cased FMJ, the rifle did not like the soft points at all, had double feeds and stove pipes every few rounds.

Is there nowhere free left?

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

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

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

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

Build your own Army

Inspired by the 'Build your own Air Force' thread.

An unspecified Eastern European country awards you 12 billion dollars to build their army from the ground up.

Rules:

1. We're in a magical world where nukes don't exist. Plan accordingly.

2. No aircraft, just helicopters and drones. Assume the Air Force is reliable.

3. For the sake of easy math, the cost of fully training and equipping a soldier is 15,000 USD including specialized training and all equipment except rifles and sidearms. Special Forces are 30,000.

4. For some reason, every country on earth is willing to sell you equipment. Have fun.

I'll start.

T-72B3M/B4 Main Battle Tank times 2,000 = 5.4 billion, 6.6 billion left.

Sikorsky S-70i Black Hawk times 100 = 500 million, 6.1 billion left.

300,000 troops = 4.5 billion, 1.6 billion left.

500,000 VEPR 12 gauge with 30 round magazine, because if your troopers aren't man enough to shoot it they don't belong in your army. = 500 million, 1.1 billion left.

500,000 Smith & Wesson M&P 40. M2.0 = 300 million, 800 million left.

3,000 Special Forces operators = 90 million, 710 million left.

With the remaining 700 mil, 700,000 more VEPR-12 gauge semiauto shotguns.

/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.

Interesting, secret and unknown operations

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

Operation Sommerregen(Summer Rain)

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

This incident took place at a highly secure state emergency operations center under State Police headquarters, to which Hauer had brought his gun in violation of state law. The foreign visitors (three emergency managers from Sweden) became rather alarmed when, in the course of his presentation, Hauer swept the gun's laser sight across their heads. Hauer later justified his action by saying that the gun wasn't loaded and he didn't see any other laser pointers nearby, but admitted it wasn't the smartest thing to do.

Questionable endeavours in military technology

This is a bread to discuss military concepts, prototypes and final products apart from everyone's favorite 5th gen multirole fighter following questionable theories/doctrines with great investment put behind them only to end up as massive wastes of time, money and resources for everyone involved.

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

We need to establish a protocol for red-flaggings.

So what's the probable timeline of getting red-flagged? And, if you survive the initial encounter without having lost your guns, what's your plan after that? Here's what I'm looking at:

Assuming I have an idea it's coming because I made some bullshit joke at Christmas dinner earlier that day and somebody's fucking girlfriend got butthurt

>one cruiser pulls up to the driveway

>two cops get out

>I ask them through the door what they want, they tell me, I ask for a warrant, and they don't have one

>I inform them that I won't comply or consent to searches

At this point, what's cop SOP and what's our best response? I'm guessing they would try to bust in unless they know I'm armed and ready. If they know, I'm guessing they'd retreat to the car and call for backup, right? If they don't know, should I inform them before they try, or let them try and open fire without any further warning?

From here, whether or not we engage in a firefight, I can expect heavy backup to arrive shortly. What then?

I'm 8 minutes away from cops unless there's one already in the area. Do I get the hell out and run Dorner-style or hunker down for Ruby Ridge 2.0?

Largest in the world armored car & combat EXOSKELETON unveiled in Ghana

A gigantic personnel carrier and military exoskeleton suits have been unveiled in Ghana during a technological fair, highlighting the homegrown high-tech achievements of the country. The cutting edge weaponry was shown in the capital city of Accra at the 38th annual Technology Exhibition of the Kantanka Group, according to local media. Footage from the scene shows an enormously large armored personnel carrier (APC) as well as several ‘exoskeleton-clad’ men getting into a square, as the onlookers cheer.

The APC also features a large hatch in its back – closely resembling a hydro lift of a truck, several cameras to observe the surroundings and a comfy-looking interior with air conditioning and a flat screen.

The armored car appears to be some four meters tall (13ft) and thrice as long, featuring a gun of sorts on its roof, as well as a number of tubes, vaguely resembling smokescreen launchers. Apart from that, it has several hatches and numerous embrasures, allowing the troopers to use personal weaponry.

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

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

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

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

The Reasons behind the US Army adoption of the 6.8 cartridge

The US Army has been mulling new rifles and ammunition since the 1980's. Only recently have those projects been approved with a projected date of adoption sometime in 2022.

More than a rifle: How a new 6.8mm round, advanced optics … - Military Times

https://www.militarytimes.com › news

The Army says that this new round is to counter russian body armor advances. While this may be a factor I think its real reason lies in the wargaming and "red team secenarios" focused on an American Civil War.

Think about it. The American Civil war will be a conflict of long range suprise engagements conducted by American Rebels using a snipe and scoot arrangement that allows them to inflict the most casualties and suffer the least. The counter strategy is to return fire by the engaged party before the rebels move. Against a Rebel AR10 or .270 rifle the M4 is ineffective against cover at 500 yrds and much less accurate in the hands of the average American soldier.

>Why not drone them strelok?

A drone cannot be on station fast enough to engage before the rebels move. Nor will rebels engage if a drone is in the area.

>Artillery and airstrikes don't exist in your fantasy strelok?

Neither are surgical enough (or cost effective) to prevent civilian casualties on American soil. Only proving to drive more people to the rebel cause than they casualties inflicted on the rebels.

In closing the 6.8 cartridge and new rifles being adopted with it are a response to the threat posed by the American Rifleman to soldiers and rearline troops.

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

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

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

>CHEAPER THAN PROJECTED

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

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

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

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

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

The international fallout of a second American civil war

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

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

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

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

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

Would Hawaii secede?

Would Chinks try to start shit with Taiwan?

Would Australia try to seize US territories in Oceania?

Would Poos shit themselves?

Would Israel crash itself with no survivors via Samson option?

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

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

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

Poland wants a fort with Donald Trump’s name on it

Critics say it could weaken NATO, or lead to Russian troops in Belarus

>Poles like being reminded of the time they came to America’s defence. Meeting his counterpart in November, James Mattis, America’s now-departed defence secretary, waxed lyrical about General Tadeusz Kosciuszko, who built a string of vital forts during America’s revolutionary war. Poland’s government hopes America will return the favour with some fort-building of its own.

>Having been repeatedly carved up by bigger powers, Poland is keen to cement alliances. It rushed to join nato in 1999, and in 2016 welcomed the headquarters of nato’s “enhanced forward presence” scheme, which stationed 4,600 combat-ready troops in eastern Europe. Yet neither this, nor the several thousand American soldiers who rotate through Poland annually, nor the nato missile defence system America is building on the country’s Baltic Sea coast have settled Polish nerves.

>Documents leaked last May showed Poland had asked America to deploy an armoured division (roughly 15,000 troops) permanently on its soil, to which Poland would contribute up to $2bn. The proposal was sprinkled with references to 1776 and quotes from President Donald Trump’s speech in Warsaw in July 2017. It noted that Poland is one of the few allies that meet nato’s target of spending 2% of gdp on defence. It alluded to Poland’s contributions to American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to America’s 70% favourability rating among Poles. Maps of potential locations even showed the schools that the hypothetical Americans’ offspring might attend. In September Andrzej Duda, Poland’s president, tried to close the deal: the base could be called “Fort Trump”.

>Though this struck many Poles as toe-curlingly crass, the proposal kicked off a serious debate. Supporters, including some American generals, argue that a permanent deployment would be preferable to the current rotational arrangement, because commanders would get to know their surroundings. Sceptics replied that America does not have tanks to spare and that moving existing units eastward from Germany would make them a juicy target for Russian rocket artillery.

>Critics also warn that Russia could respond by building up forces in Kaliningrad, its European exclave to Poland’s north, or in Belarus. Alexander Lukashenko, Belarus’ autocratic president, has beaten back Russian demands for a base for years, but American tanks next door could force his hand. That, in turn, would create a headache for Ukraine, which might have to shift forces to defend its border with Belarus. A bilateral deal, cut over nato’s head, might compound growing unease over America’s commitment to multilateral alliances. The Baltic states “would inevitably feel marginalised”, a recent Estonian study cautioned.

>Another worry is that an American base might deepen the wedge between Poland and the eu. In 2009 Poland helped launch talks on the eu’s Permanent Structured Cooperation (pesco), a framework for European defence co-operation. But in 2017 it was the last to sign the agreement, underlining its tilt towards America. In 2016 the government cancelled an order for 50 Airbus helicopters, offending France. Instead it is pumping much of its growing defence budget into an American Patriot air defence system worth $4.8bn. The eu also frets that an American base would convey approval for Poland’s illiberal nationalist government, hampering the bloc’s efforts to stop it from weakening the judiciary and undermining the rule of law.

>Congress has told the Pentagon to report on the feasibility of a base by March 1st. A huge garrison looks less likely than a slimmer deployment, perhaps to existing sites. American officials fear the proposed new sites lack space for tank manoeuvres. In December Mr Duda suggested that Mr Mattis’s departure would make it “easier to talk”, as he had been sceptical of the idea. But the Pentagon is in disarray, with the new leadership unlikely to rank eastern Europe high on its agenda.

Do any of you practice shooting sports (clays, ipsc, long range shooting, etc.)? How expensive is it to get into and keep at it? Does anything put you off from practicing shooting sports?

I've been eyeballing the IPSC shotgun standard manual category, but I'm not sure if there's any such events in my area–the local ISPC website seems to only advertise pistol events.

I'm also looking for long range shooting events but they don't seem heavily advertised. I also suspect it may be more expensive too with all the gizmos involved (scope, range finder, etc.).

Why aren't armoured self-propelled autocannons more of a thing in conventional terrestrial warfare? They have the capacity to engage more light-armoured targets per kg of ammo, are more effective against infantry and can provide more sustained supressive fire than MBTs, they are relatively proven in being used for anti-ground and of course are much much less vulnerable to enemy aircraft.

Huthi rebels use a drone to kill Yemenis during a parade

Huthi rebels have not only managed to construct a prop-driven fixed wing drone, but also figured out a way to strap a load of explosives to it, make it fly over a Yemeni military parade, and detonate it as it passes over the podium.

All while avoiding starvation.

What's your excuse?

At least six have been reported dead so far. Many more are injured. Video evidence has already been uploaded to the internet.

Two current generals and one former general of the Yemeni army have been injured in the attack. Their current medical status is unknown.

Saudis immediately blame Iran without delivering any proofs.

Tell me, /k/.

Why were the United States of Burgerland the only major participant of WW2 who did not field autocannons as primary armament on the majority of its fighter aircraft?

Why were license-built Hispanos limited to P-38s and larger aircraft while most single engined fighters across the Navy and Air Force had to contend with 4 fiddys/wing throughout the war?

Not that 50. BMGs are bad or anything, they did a fine job against Paper aircraft equipped with 30mm autocannons constructed by starving slant eyed rice farmers but if it hadn't been for Göring screwing over German heavy bomber procurement Burgerplanes wouldn't have performed as well in Europe as they did.

It bothers me to no end considering the fuckhueg Industrial base of the USA back then, how did they fuck this up when even Soviet engineers chained up in a Gulag were capable of delivering functional 20mm aircraft armaments?

Camo

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

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

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

Anyway post your own camo stories.

Attacking infrastructure

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

The electrical grid is the most important in that infrastructure system.

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

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

The Canadians and even US armies supposedly used at least a few of them. I'm trying to find the blueprints for it (or the Oerlikon for that matter) for my collection, only to discover that autocannon plans, even those with long-expired patents like these, don't seem to have jack shit available for them unlike many other historical heavy weapons.

Remaking Dragon Skin body armor

https://archive.fo/DfrMD

So apparently when dragon skin armor was still a thing, it was capable of withstanding almost all small arms fire with no penetration, even staying together when a grenade was detonated point blank on it. It had been purchased and used by Secret Service, CIANigs, Mercenaries in Iraq, SWAT teams, 9 generals in Afghanistan and their bodyguards. The only reason it was dropped was because the glue holding it all together couldn't stay together over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the company making it has gone bankrupt, the only way it may ever see the light of day again is if we start making it ourselves.

We just need to find a better way of securing the plates better, how to get them and put them together and we could have the epitome of body armor. I've found a few sources of silicon carbide plates on Alibaba, which I've never used before and have no idea if it's legitimate

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Playing Battlefleet Gothic and Ultimate General side by side, I notice that in the very far future when we have sorted our shit out and move into space, which brands of the military would be the main one?

Nowadays you can say the navy is already more important due to logistics and force projection, but in the future when the "world" becomes limitless border of space with some planets, I think the space navy would become the top utmost force, with the infantry just serving as garrison force or invasion force for the most part, the decisive, war-winning move would be met on space. Any planet that is encircled and besieged by a fleet is basically deadmeat, no matter how good the infantry there is.

ATF bans bumpstocks

https://www.atf.gov/rules-and-regulations/bump-stocks

>Current possessors of bump-stock-type devices must divest themselves of possession as of the effective date of the final rule.

Extended bullshittery below:

The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to clarify that bump-stock-type devices-meaning "bump fire" stocks, slide-fire devices, and devices with certain similar characteristics-are "machineguns" as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 because such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger. Specifically, these devices convert an otherwise semiautomatic firearm into a machinegun by functioning as a self-acting or self-regulating mechanism that harnesses the recoil energy of the semiautomatic firearm in a manner that allows the trigger to reset and continue firing without additional physical manipulation of the trigger by the shooter. Hence, a semiautomatic firearm to which a bump-stock-type device is attached is able to produce automatic fire with a single pull of the trigger. With limited exceptions, the Gun Control Act, as amended, makes it unlawful for any person to transfer or possess a machinegun unless it was lawfully possessed prior to the effective date of the statute. The bumpstock-type devices covered by this final rule were not in existence prior to the effective date of the statute, and therefore will be prohibited when this rule becomes effective. Consequently, under the final rule, current possessors of these devices will be required to destroy the devices or abandon them at an ATF office prior to the effective date of the rule.

Fire as a weapon

I'm surprised there is no thread dedicated to molotovs, incendiary device, and the use of fire as a weapon.

Time to fix that!

Lets start with the classic molotov:

AR or Mini14

I want a rifle in 5.56 but I'm having trouble in deciding which rifle to go with. I'm leaning towards the AR platform but the Mini14 has some pretty good pros that can change my mind for a right price. I have at most 600 to work with right but I could wait to save up some more. I need your advice /k/ on buying a rifle that I could use in a possible (inevitable?) shtf scenario. After checking the sticky on buying my next gun I decided I needed more input.

Should I get an AR platform given its widespread use in LE and the military?

Is the mini 14 action that much better than the AR considering it's based on the M1?

If I go with an AR is Palmetto State Armory a good brand to with or should I save up for something like a Colt?

It's a Hate-Hate relationship

Thread for all things Asia Pacific related; Japan's getting a carrier, and Koreans are acting like niggers.

South Korean warship directs fire-control radar at Japanese MSDF plane

>A South Korean warship directed fire-control radar on Thursday at a Maritime Self-Defense Force aircraft, the Japanese government said Friday, lodging a protest with South Korea.

>It was an extremely dangerous act that could cause a contingency situation,” Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya told reporters.

>The radar was directed at an MSDF P-1 patrol aircraft off the coast of Ishikawa Prefecture on Thursday afternoon, Iwaya said.

>It's impossible for a friendly country (to take such an action). I'm surprised,” a senior Foreign Ministry official separately told reporters.

Japan to effectively remodel MSDF vessel into aircraft carrier

>Japan plans to effectively upgrade one of its helicopter carriers to enable it to transport and launch fighter jets, the latest draft of its defense guidelines showed Tuesday, in an apparent effort to curtail China’s maritime assertiveness in nearby waters.

>The ruling parties approved the draft guidelines presented by the government, which said the country will “enable fighter jets to be operated from existing warships, if necessary, to improve the flexibility of their operation.”

>Specifically, the government is looking to upgrade the DDH-183 Izumo to enhance its air defense capabilities in the Pacific Ocean.

>However, remodeling the Maritime Self-Defense Force vessel into an aircraft carrier could draw criticism as it could be seen as a shift away from the country’s strictly defense-oriented policy.

>The government has maintained it cannot possess “attack aircraft carriers” under the pacifist Constitution, as such vessels can be deemed offensive weapons and exceed what is necessary for self-defense.

>The ruling Liberal Democratic Party and its coalition partner Komeito agreed Tuesday to draft a statement to make sure the modified Izumo would fall within the scope of the war-renouncing Constitution.

>The government has also indicated F-35B advanced stealth fighter jets will not be permanently deployed on the remodeled Izumo. The fighter jets, which the ministry plans to purchase in the next five years, are capable of short takeoffs and vertical landings.

>“The Izumo was originally designed as a multipurpose escort ship, so it wouldn’t pose any threat to other countries if fighter jets are deployed on it,” Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya told reporters earlier in the day. He added the upgraded Izumo would not be an “attack aircraft carrier.”

>The Izumo-class 19,500-ton carriers, which also includes the Kaga, are 248 meters long and can carry up to 14 helicopters. They are Japan’s largest postwar naval vessels.

>The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to endorse on Dec. 18 the revised version of the National Defense Program Guidelines, which set out defense capability targets over a span of about 10 years, according to government sources.
