Myanmar/Burma Thread Strelok 02/21/2021 (Sun) 08:09:46 No.13491 [Reply] [Last]
We should have a Myanmar/Burma thread. I think it's a big enough topic to justify having it separate from the Chink/Pajeet thread. >What happened? Long story short the Myanmar military has guaranteed 1/3rd representation in their version of congress. Aung San Suu Kyi had introduced a bunch of progressive reforms over the last few years and had frequent visits with Chinese despite Myanmar and China being in a technically hostile relationship. This is a big deal because Chinese nationals have been actively waging a civil war in Northern Myanmar. Suu Kyi lost international support after she approved the Muslim genocides back in 2017 in order to avoid a death sentence by the Myanmar military. The Myanmar military claims there was election fraud, but the evidence is more that this was a move to ensure national sovereignty as the current leader of the military would have been forced to step down/retire following the elections due to anti-military legislation congress passed in recent years. The military is using the excuse of Wu Flu to keep Myanmar's congressional body from officially convening by claiming that public officials violated COVID restrictions and utilized communication means to contact foreign countries when they were under investigation (something that is extremely illegal in Myanmar). Currently civil servants are protesting by manipulating the markets to crash the Myanmar economy with no survivors in order to try to justify UN interference in the form of foreign aid. Health workers, education workers, transportation workers, and banks are refusing to operate and holding protests. Foreign interference is expected. >Why does this matter? The military coup is aiming to restore the balance of power between military and civilian offices in government. If this fails, you can expect a war between Myanmar and China before the end of Biden's presidency as a means of China acquiring more territory. Specifically gemstone/mineral-rich territory that Myanmar already heavily exploits. This could give China an unprecedented economic edge to manipulate the precious metals market. Despite the military crackdown on communications and being an active part of the government, it is likely that the international community will use the protests as an excuse to start civil war in Myanmar since it could give them an excuse to plant western government military bases near China. >Who are the good guys? There are none. Suu Kyi is a progressive bitch, but the military are equally power-hungry and mostly working to preserve power structures that they failed to keep over the 2000s/2010s. Stop crashing and let me post the thread, damn it. >Flood Detected >When the thread didn't even fucking post God damn it.

Myanmar security forces with rifle grenades kill over 80 protesters Soldiers used machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades to attack an organized group of protesters who had set up barricades to defend part of Bago. https://archive.is/AxHLM https://archive.is/9uuU5 >Myanmar security forces fired rifle grenades at protesters in a town near Yangon on Friday, killing more than 80 people. >Details of the death toll in the town of Bago, 90 km (55 miles) northeast of Yangon, were not initially available because security forces piled up bodies in the Zeyar Muni pagoda compound and cordoned off the area, according to witnesses and domestic media outlets. >Firing started before dawn on Friday and continued into the afternoon. >“It is like genocide,” the news outlet quoted a protest organiser called Ye Htut as saying. “They are shooting at every shadow.” >Many residents of the town have fled, according to accounts on social media. >An alliance of ethnic armies in Myanmar that has opposed the junta’s crackdown attacked a police station in the east on Saturday and at least 10 policemen were killed. >The police station at Naungmon in Shan state was attacked early in the morning by fighters from an alliance that includes the Arakan Army, the Ta’ang National Liberation Army and the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army. >Ousted Myanmar lawmakers urged the United Nations Security Council on Friday to take action against the military. >“Our people are ready to pay any cost to get back their rights and freedom,” said Zin Mar Aung, who has been appointed acting foreign minister for a group of ousted lawmakers. She urged Council members to apply both direct and indirect pressure on the junta. >The military appears to be targeting centers of resistance around the country, using overwhelming power against largely untrained, poorly armed protesters. In Tamu, a town near the border with India, members of a local defense group similar to the one in Bago claimed to have killed some members of the security forces on Saturday after coming under attack. >A small rebel group called the Kuki National Army, one of many ethnic armed groups that have been fighting Myanmar’s military for years in regional conflicts, said it had helped the Tamu protesters battle the security forces on Saturday >Myanmar’s military rulers said on Friday that protests against its rule were dwindling because people wanted peace, and that it would hold elections within two years. >Junta spokesman Major General Zaw Min Tun told a news conference on Friday in the capital, Naypyitaw, that the military had recorded 248 civilian deaths and 16 police deaths, and said no automatic weapons had been used by security forces.

The pleasure of being **hand**loaded inside Strelok 12/21/2020 (Mon) 21:59:10 No.11298 [Reply]
I don't see a reloading/handloading thread, so it's my turn to make it. Post your hot loads. I've started reloading shotshells, but I'm looking to get into slugs as well I have a rifled barrel for my shotgun, so I'm torn between trying to buy a slug mould that makes calibre slugs, and just dealing with any leading, or taking the more traditional route of sub-calbre slugs and a shot cup. Currently I'm leaning towards going with a .678 ball mould since it's a lot cheaper than the only moulds I can find for calibre slugs ($70 vs $160). Also the .678 ball works out to be just a bit over an ounce, probably closer to an ounce if I'm not using perfectly pure lead. That plus a standard shot cup wad makes finding reloading data easier, as well as saving money on the lead. Is it just me or is the Lyman reloading data very sparse for anything other than light trap loads? Obviously their slug data is only for the 2 types of slug they have moulds for, not surprising. This is making me somewhat cautious of buying the calibre mould since it makes a slug that's heaver than they Lyman foster slugs. Even outside of slugs, once you get into heavier/higher velocity loads there's just a smattering of random recipes. This is a large part of what's driving me towards the ball mould since I can skip the slug section that has very little data and just use 1oz shot load data. I pity the poor guy with a .410 that just wants to load some slugs, they don't even bother offering a section for .410 Anyone have experience with slug making or handloading in general?

>>12366 So I ordered some dies and I'm now playing the waiting game. I need to get a bullet mold now. Do you Streloks think that it's worth it to spring for the double mold? I've never cast my own projectiles so I don't know how long it will take. Also, the equipment is at my parent's house which I normally only see on the weekends so there is kind of a time constraint I guess. Here's some pics I tried to start a milsurp thread on zzzchan while we were out of commission here. There was a guy on Gunbroker that had a fuck ton of 43 mauser and reloading equipment for it for $1500 but I just bought a vz 58 and can't afford that at the drop of a hat so Q_Q. </blogpost>
>>13167 You pour hot lead in, wait a second and knock them loose. I have six cell molds for a lot of my stuff, can crap out an asinine amount of projectiles in little to no time.
>>13167 Well I'm finally ready to start reloading. The bullet mold got here last Monday and the brass got here yesterday. I hope that next weekend I'll actually have time to make some cartridges. Nobody posts here anymore but I hope somebody at least lurks to share in my excitement. Will post news story when I blow myself up through sheer incompetence.
>>14781 Glad to hear of your progress Strelok. Stay safe and contentious with managing your setup.

Moderation seems fine as it is. If being the top board brings more spam, it might then be good to draft a few users as jannies purely for the sake of removing only spam (as in, ban any who overstep that). Worked great for my imageboard when 2015 CP spam was a daily occurance. >>14435 I fully agree with the decision as well. They messed up with the wrong email address but still gave a whole month to migrate so I think the admin handled a messy situation well. Plus, the BO probably couldn't have done anything to fix the troublemakers in the userbase, no matter how competent they were. As a prominent crossboarder, I've noticed site drama has dropped significantly.

Regarding Rule 1, you'll have to wait for the BO to reply, I could probably change the rules but I do at least want to go up the command chain. Usually 1-2 hours bans are enough to calm them down. >>14432 >Hiding the board I am against that unless we get five finger fisted up the ass like old 8cuck did. 4cucks are basically reddittors and are not really capable versus ye old golden days.

>>12435 Yeah I am aware. I actually heard kevin wants to remove some of the supernatural enemy like the migos and the other cthulhu inspired enemies. Appearently, they're doing it on the grounds of it "not being realistic". I don't really agree with this change as I never really saw the enemies in the game to be realistic, and that's kind of the point. The blob, the thing that is responsible for causing the zombie enemies is actually a largely understood enemy and can even be cured with modern day medical knowledge. I actually respect this aspect of the blob because I think having a virus be incurable or not understood is kind of cliche. Image unrelated.

I meant "tectonic stablity", not technologically stable in regards to the deployment location. It says the 265 is unmanned, this can mean completely autonomous, or that there is no gunner and there is only a driver+radio/radar operator, OR it could mean the turret is unmanned (This is implied). I also forgot to mention. Those vehicles in the gif seemed to be intentionally covered up. This would mean that the vehicles are domestically produced dongfeng and not the MZKT chassis. Why they would do this I do not know. Maybe to keep the russians from screeching about licensing?

Squad/unit weapons and tactics in SHTF/WROL/B-word Strelok 03/16/2021 (Tue) 20:31:56 No.14089 [Reply]
This is mostly a fun and hypothetical discussion, not a super serious one. But what weapons and tactics do you think would be very effect in a SHTF situation, but would be unconventional or ineffective in modern warfare. I have two, 1) Trebuchets and Longbows I think it's safe to assume there'd be very limited access to modern indirect fire weapons like mortars, cannons, etc and I skeptical that homemade versions would be anymore effective than more primitive artillery to include ballistas although I don't think castle type sieges would be likely I think small trebuchets, like one's small enough to fit and operate in a truck bed, along with bow, could be used for indirect fire against encampments and defense positions from behind cover that would protect you from firearms. Not to mention you could obviously use radios or other methods for observation and fire correction side question, what kind of a fire control system could you use for archers firing without line of site? Not to mention you could incorporate improvised explosives with the trebuchet. Lastly, and this mostly applies to archery. But I think they could be absolutely killer for night attacks and ambushes in combination with guns. The archers open up on the enemy, mostly likely just wounding some, and likely forcing the enemy to use lights to try to find the archers, since bows don't have muzzle flash. Once they turn their lights on, not only are they clearly giving away their position (if it's a weapon mounted flash light or something) but also as I'm sure you're aware. If you're in a brightly lit area looking into a dark area beyond, you can't see fucking shit, vice versa, if you're in a dark area looking into a brightly lit area, you can see it plain as day. So if you can force the enemy to turn on bright lighting, your gunners will have a massive advantage over their gunners. 2) Shotguns being used like LMG Obviously I'm not referring to firerate, however I am referring to suppressive fire capabilities (at <100 yards). I don't think you'd want to use some kind of semi-auto rifle for this role in SHTF, just due to ammo conservation, those rounds are better used elsewhere. However I think a shotgun firing buckshot Maybe some birdshot thrown in as filler one round every 3-5 seconds could work very well for suppressing fire since with buckshot it'd have a pretty high chance of substantially wounding someone, even at decent ranges. I think a .22lr with large magazines could be used similarly, but I don't think would have the same psychological effect nor have the same likelyhood of causing a wound like buckshot would. Anyway, what are y'alls thoughts on the subject?

Just wanted to add this (polite sage as well)
Not being a dick but have you read the book one of the streloks is writing? >>2682
>>14130 No, but I've seen it, I'll check it out.
>>14089 SHTF? I would prepare before that. Anyone i plan to include in my team would need to be familiar with crossbows and Bows, also slings if possible. Not just shooting and hitting, but also effectively hunting with them and shooting fast with them. ranged weapons that work on primitive projectiles (arrows/bolts for bows and crossbows, rocks for slings) are ideal for SHTF in my Area, since it would most like look like this: >people all get locked in Megacities. >Vaccination and registration mandatory for living in the MCs >Anyone that doesn't want that can get fucked, no participation in social life, basically an outcast and free meat. >Have to survive on your own, hide not only from the elements, but also from government, that doesn't want people like you running around inspiring others. And since here you need loicenses and whatnot to buy firearms, and any ammo supply will dry up without resupply from the Cities (Who knows, maybe civilian hunting will be outlawed completely), it will be down to slinging rocks and arrows. A person Knowing how to use them effectively will be worth his weight in gold. WEAPONS First of all: Stay ranged, or stay in massive groups. Second: crossbows and slings are fucking scary. Crossbows are more complex, but anyone can use them with a little training, and they're incredibly effective against anyone without full combat gear. Slings are easy to learn, but hard to master, but if you manage to actually get the hang of it, and aim and sling rocks with high precision and power, you can kill grown men with metal armor with that shit, look it up, it's terrifying. Third: If you are up against mostly melee fighters, and you have more than just a handful men, go for spears. They are cheap and easy to produce and replace, require practically no maintenance, and they're very effective at holding your ground and fucking up everyone who's bold enough to get to close.

>>14445 >How about you type up some stuff on that and contriboot? your right strelok. ill stop being a lazy faggot. just add this passage wherever you feel it fits or reword it to fit in existing passages idk idc Regardless of what weapon system or equipment you chose you will need to be proficient with it. Shooting skill means nothing if you or your buddies are dead so take a first aid class. these are readily available basically everywhere thanks to the Red cross. https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/first-aid now you need to be proficient with your rifle. if you can stomach giving money to the NRA they do offer plenty of classes geared mostly towards uninitiated shooters. There isnt really a monolithic organization dedicated towards firearms training for civilians so to develop skill you are going to need to search for local carbine, long rifle, precision shooting, and pistol courses. If you live near them and/or can afford to travel to and take them the boomer at Thunder ranch and Pat McNamara Know their shit and teach it well. that's also why they command such a high premium. You are also going to want more CQC centric training just to keep all your bases covered. Though they are few and far between classes like Shivworks' ECQC do provide some practical if less conventional training. Lots of martial arts are practically useless, but if you can train yourself to strike(with your hands) and grapple, you will be better off for it. Join a boxing/wrestling gym or get into MMA. (i like your page on physical strength but im also going to recommend convectional powerlifting programs, many of which are free and highly tested. Starting strength for example. https://iteroni.com/embed/nhoikoUEI8U https://iteroni.com/embed/p2OPUi4xGrM https://iteroni.com/embed/rxD321l2svE https://iteroni.com/embed/2ggG1M2gGes its a lot easier to lug around heavy gear when you can squat 300lbs once than when you can squat 180lbs 15x Source: me. also here is a marsoc short card focusing on cardiovascular endurance. these exercises should be done back to back with little or ideally no rest in-between. only rest between sets of the whole card.)
Highly appreciate your recommendation for "Forging the Hero". A lot of the stuff in your book seems very greatly marked by the concepts elucidated in Mosby's work and I'd encourage other anons to give it a read as well. It's fantastic.

No. If you can't seem to understand that the overwhelming majority of people you would turn away from your tribe's hometown would be white, I can't help you. I mention race because it's such a problem here in the US for us, one that will be worse in a major crisis. I am also writing for our friends in Europe, who have their own issues. If you're stupid enough to accept whites into your tribe's homeland just because they are white.... you deserve everything that happens to you, and everything that those "whites" do to your children is on you. Those lovely "whites" you plan to let in will act just about like the saxons did with the celts: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=CH8JcBKb1W4 >>14465 I do mention that it's situation-dependent, but even soft armor isn't something you can wear 24/7.

https://quarryhs.co.uk/152x2.htm >Russia has revealed a new 152mm gun, with two barrels, vertically stacked. Unlike the smaller Gast-type guns in Russian service (GSh-23, GSh-30, 2A38M) the mechanisms are not mechanically linked, but they are connected through the hydraulic recoil system, and fire alternately. This principle is called the 'boxer' system. It is being developed by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise (FSUE) TsceNII 'Burevestnik' in cooperation with public corporations NPO 'BTA', FSUE 'Uraltransmash', FSUE 'TsceNIIM', and FSUE 'Uralvagonzavod'. >This gun has initially been developed for an army SPG, based on the 'object 195' tank chassis and called the 'Koalitcia-SV' ('coalition'). In this form, the gun has a 50-round automatic loader (the turret is unmanned) and can fire at about 15-18 rpm. It is expected to enter service in 2007. >There is also a proposed naval version, possibly intended as a replacement for the AK-130. It is reportedly being developed by Arsenal (although that is not confirmed) and will use a 'stealth' cupola. >The range with existing ammunition is about 50 km, but NIIP is developing a new round capable of up to 70 km. By now we know that they went back to a single barrel, which is less cool but more logical. I honestly don't know what they were thinking in the first place.
>>13816 "Allegedly" the Saudis believe the pilot "thought he was dealing with a heat guided missile when the reality was he was being tracked by a surface-to-air missile" and that the pilot was "doing routine procedures having mistaken his location as being in safe airzones" even though the plane had been out for quite a while.
The obvious dawned upon me: a 210mm gun could fire both 152mm and 155mm shells with sabots, and you could go even lower for 127mm naval shells. Or even 122mm and 130mm soviet shells. Or go bigger for the 175mm US and 180mm soviet shells, or even the 203mm shells from either side of the Cold War. Not that this would be the best solution, but a country could use up whatever old stocks of shells they have lying around and save some pennies, especially if they can recycle the powder charges too. And it also cuts down on initial R&D if you already have access to a wide variety of fancy guided shells that just need a sabot to work with a new gun.
>>14038 I have no sources to confirm this whatsoever, but I believe that the thinking was that they could have a self propelled artillery platform that could hypothetically have a similar alpha-strike capability in a battery to a rocket artillery piece, with smaller logistical footprint when compared to traditional artillery pieces.

>>14557 Speaking of 210mm: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Fao >Al-Fao is a self-propelled artillery system designed for the former Iraqi Army by the late Canadian weapons engineer, Gerald Bull. It is one of the world's most powerful artillery pieces, with a caliber of 210 mm (8.3 in) and a range of 56 km (35 mi).[1] The Al-Fao system weighs 48 tons and can drive on roads with a top speed of about 72 km/h (45 mph). It's gun is claimed to be able to fire four 109 kg (240 lb) rounds a minute. The projectiles could be filled with chemical weapons such as sarin, mustard gas or phosgene, or with conventional high explosives. And unfortunately this is all the information I could find scouring the internet. >>14622 That makes sense, and I guess they could revive the idea by trying to make a better autoloader for a design with a single tube. But why would it have a smaller logistical footprint? Simply because they wouldn't need both tube and rocket artillery units for these two different applications?
