Is the trigger mechanism any more complicated than a conventional revolver? I've never seen one taken apart before.

Aside from that, probably 'market forces' (i.e. cheap and lazy) and cultural momentum. It's superior, but not by enough of a margin to change from the design that everyone's already familiar with.

The Taliban stopped bothering engaging US forces in protracted gun battles within 300 yards/meters. They realized it was an exercise in futility and stupidity because at the range, the 5.56 is more than good enough for American drills to crush them and lock them down.

So Dshk's and PKMs, alongside RPGs and Recoilless Rifles are the primary attack vectors that aren't IEDs. You should see a pattern, its weapons that can deliver lethal force at around a kilometer or greater, excepting the RPG rounds which autodetonate at certain distances. So against American forces, what has been happening is short, intense engagements with light artillery alongside burst of machine gun fire for the suppressing and disrupting effect.

After 10 minutes or less, the Taliban breaks. And during these engagements, the Taliban have gotten very good at trading for favorable casualty ratios. If it wasnt for the ease of Medivac, they'd come out ahead more than not.

The true question is, dollar-by-dollar who's winning? It's more than expected that a warmachine of the scale and technological level of NATO, with its completely pussified policies regarding human loss, to have much less human casualties than sandy goatfuckers in cave but how much does a human casualty costs NATO in monetary value when there are thousands if not millions of dollars on the soldier's back for his training, equipment and even air-support? If NATO was blindly sending elementary-trained and rudimentary equipped conscripts to the grinder without air-surveillance, Abraams tanks, attack helicopters and A-10s slapping their ass how much more cost effective would that be?

PAfags unite!

True about PA police, I haven't had a real problem with them (yet) but I'm nowhere near Philly either. As I said in the other thread, OC is good for normalizing guns, and that's going to be a huge boon for the gun community.


The idea being that if people are more aware of faggot-free OC in their day to day lives, it becomes cultural. OC has its advantages and disadvantages but overall I encourage it for normalizing the conversation. No minds are changed online ever, but conversation in person about guns, taking people to the range, that helps.

I actually did get pulled over in Philly with a gun in my car. I gave him the old "before we speak further, I just wanted you to be aware that I have a licence to carry firearms and I have a loaded handgun in a holster under my passenger seat. I can step out of the car if that would make you more comfortable." He pretty much said "no, that's fine" and didn't mention it again. I handed him my LTCF with my driver's license. Several friends have had trouble with Philly cops acting super aggressive with them while CCing though, but they're the douchey "I KNOW MY RIGHTS! AM I BEING DETAINED?" type who think that rights are like muscles and will atrophy without "exercise."

How the health system works is that you do damage on a specific limb, however once that limb is blacked out, all that damage that would've otherwise gone to the leg gets transferred to the entire body, making kneecapping with the shotgun a viable option.

Why didn't spoon tip rounds catch on?

1715b4  No.632180


They don't offer that much beyond good yawing which could be useful but is less efficient than fragmentation or expansion. It could be used to allow fragmenting bullets like M855 to yaw and actually fragment but it's not done because army is stupid. Other than that, there is a good example of non-fragmenting tumbling round - 5.45x39mm with 7N6 bullet - it has empty space in the tip under the jacket that compresses when hitting the target and allowing the bullet to tumble. It performed pretty well but was replaced by an "enhanced penetration" round for different reasons. I don't know how spoon tip bullet shape might affect their flight but if it does it might be just another disadvantage. It might also be more difficult(or just different for current industry) to machine with common copper-jacketed bullets. H&K does have such bullets for their MP7 though, but that's probably because of "expanding ammo" prohibition to the militarizes that would be the only ones who could find it proper use but they are military so just laugh.

So, TL;DR: tumbling is good but soft point is better so why both.

>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.


>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.

Yeah, I'd call bullshit if I wasn't to be accused for greatest-ally-bias. If I was allowed to make assumptions I'd say Dutch F-16s were hit but not shot down and judging from the sheer volume of F-16 Holland used they probably did not risk sending even slightly damaged planes back to action.

>In July 2018, Deputy Prime Minister for Defence and Space Industry Yury Borisov said there is currently no need to mass-produce the Armata when its older predecessors, namely the latest variants of the T-72, remain "effective against American, German and French counterparts”, saying, “Why flood our military with Armatas, the T-72s are in great demand on the market(s).”[78][79] Instead, a modernization program of the T-72s, T-80s and T-90s in-service will take precedent.[80] In August 2018, at the ARMY2018 Forum outside Moscow, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the purchase of 32 T-14s tanks and 100 T-15 infantry fighting vehicles, with delivery to be finished by 2021.[81]

>Not talking out of his ass.

The fact that they did order a brigade worth of them a month latter after he said that should tell you all you need to know about Borisov.

Russia has 12 defense ministers, 1 actual minister, 2 first deputy ministers, 9 deputy ministers. And you have more for industry, and then you have "deputy prime ministers" which aren't actually part of the defense ministry but part of the prime minister cabinet (which has little sway at large and even less on matters of defense, as the ministry of defense report directly to the president and not the prime minister). Russia has easily a couple of hundred of "ministers".



>not being completely retarded.

The number 2300 armored vehicles in 5 years sounds about right (it was 180 MBTs and 300 IFVs this year before the end of the year spike in delivery) but no one sane actually though it was going to be the shit whose prototype weren't even done and there was no provision in the 2011-2016 budget for.

Reality just doesn't work that way, I know that being Ukrainian and all you don't have the best grasp on that.
