Sleepy, mothballed militaries on this continent often only get to see action during civil unrest and the occasional coup d'état. Studying them is interesting if you want to see how Third World militaries cope with alienation from society and a lack of a clear enemy. And coping in general. The Brazilian Army has large troop numbers compared to its neighbors, but not as much of a numerical advantage when counting military hardware. It has a gargantuan territory to cover with motorized, jungle, light, border, etc. infantry. Brigades have to spread out their battalions, but this isn't just by the length of the border and coastline, brigades deep into the heart of the country do it too. Conscripts have to serve close to where they live, and officers still believe in molding and educating the unwashed masses through conscription. The Army is the only service with a substantial number of conscripts. Some say there'd be enough volunteers to abolish conscription. For the past couple decades, Army strategists have devised several schemes splitting their force between mostly professional, high-readiness brigades and outdated brigades only meant to process conscripts. There's supposed to be a reserve, but nobody's sure if a true mobilization would work. All motorized infantry is set to be mechanized with the locally-assembled Iveco Guarani, but that's gonna take many years. The cavalry's older Urutu APCs have already been replaced. Its Cascavels will be replaced by Centauro IIs by a contract signed last month. Some of them will also be locally assembled and there's a degree of parts commonality with the Guarani; furthermore, Argentina is now set to also use Guaranis, which might give the defense industry some economy of scale. Leopard 1s will serve as far as 2040 and I haven't heard of any replacement for the M-113s which are supposed to follow them. The Air Force's Gripens are very early on in their replacement of earlier F-5s. The Navy "has" an aircraft carrier because they designated their helicopter carrier (Atlântico, formerly the HMS Ocean) as a "multipurpose aircraft carrier". Which they only use for helicopters anyway. They still have about ~5 carrier-capable Skyhawks so they can take off from a nonexistant carrier and, aided by nonexistant AEW aircraft, dogfight at sea with their guns. I've read in some of their material that the Atlântico's Artisan system could still guide the Skyhawks, but how much would this be useful without AEW aircraft? Please tell me.

>>47183 >What can you tell me about the military industrial capacity of Brazil? It used to be formidable for a Third World country, but much of it deindustrialized in the 90s. Brazilian armored cars, APCs and rocket artillery were widely used in the Iran-Iraq war and remaining vehicles were fighting Isis just a few years ago. Some large items can still be produced locally: KC-390 transport aircraft by Embraer, Super Cougar helicopters by Helibras, Tamandaré-class frigates by ThyssenKrupp South America, Astros MRLS by Avibras, Guarani APCs and soon, Centauro IIs by Iveco. Degrees of foreign technology vary from locally-produced foreign designs to local designs relying on foreign technology (itself, either produced locally or imported) for critical components (e.g. the KC-390 is said to be 60% national, but its engines have to be imported). The Navy has a nuclear submarine program based on the French Scorpene, the nuclear reactor itself is national, but the project has been dragging on forever. >In case of war, would they be able to produce a lot of new equipment? I guess it couldn't scale up quickly even under ideal conditions, even at its height military industry was only a minor fraction of the industrial economy. Maybe Embraer could because it also produces civilian aircraft. >How does Brazil military industrial capacity compare to that of its neighbors? It's better than any of them except Argentina. Argentine industry wasn't export-focused but got ahead of ours in some aspects and behind in others. In the 80s we had a low tech tank project that never took off (the Tamoyo), while they successfully got a low-tech Marder with a tank turret (the TAM). Their submarine production didn't get as far and they don't have an aircraft company as big as Embraer.
It's over for the former Foch/São Paulo, the Brazilian Navy scuttled it yesterday and it rests beneath five km of water. A Saudi group had made a last-minute offer to buy it, but at this point it was taking in so much water it'd just sink on its own if it had to be towed to another continent.

>>46648 i did some training with the 5th regiment last year. they were pretty cool guys. it was pretty obvious that they didnt get nearly enough money though. their main building was collapsing and they managed to break out a whole 6 helicopters to move our entire company into the AO. the heli's in your pic are honestly pretty solid. definitely a better ride than a blackhawk with more troop space and much more utility for a utility helicopter lol. they buy them from the frogs iirc. the IA2 was pretty cool and nearly all of their troops seemed to have them. their mortar's and doctrine is kinda terrible though.
>>47053 As early as 1820 commentators in south america were saying that the whole continent was doomed to just being a revolving door of dictators because the local population was too stupid to create a functional american or european style democracy. I think it was Simon Bolivar himself (one of the most influential men in latin american political history) who said that it was hopeless to expect them to be anything other than second-rate. This was after decades of him being the leader of the revolutionary forces that led much of south america to independence from Spain and Portugal. After years of trying to teach them how to be civilised, he gave up and declared his entire life’s work was wasted on monkeys in suits.
>>47054 In the US, the armed forces are under the direct control of the executive (the US President, though these days the direct power is delegated to the Department of Defence for day-to-day operations. The DoD is still made up of people appointed by the president, though). The idea of the military outright defying the government is unthinkable as a result, because all of the high command not only takes orders from the president but also is mostly appointed by him and is thus usually people who would be loyal to him. The only way you’d get a military coup is if you could convince lower-level generals to oppose their upper command.

>>43399 >>43398 They released some footage the other day, Stre-chan. Bodycam off one of the cops and some security coverage of the back door where Pepe broke in. We also got audio and transcript of the 911 call. Shit's still breddy strange, but unless it's deepfaked or some shit it's looking like Peepers really did break in. Also if I were married to that skeltal reptilian I'd probably fuck dudes on the side too, so who knows. Image... possibly related? I dunno. It's a weird story, I'm not really sure what to make of it. >>43439 Nobody's really "ready" for that shit bro. Infrastructure collapse, if and when it happens, is projected to kill ~90% of the American population within the first year, and the collapse of the US means the end of the extant world order. That means global trade and (((foreign aid))) go bye-bye for the foreseeable future. Amusingly, there'd likely be a flood of shitskin refugees in all directions as the subhumans suddenly realized that peacetime wipipo ≠ desperation mode wipipo. I would expect around a billion and change in total global casualties (counting both humans and subhuman bipeds), assuming nobody gets the bright idea to start slingin' nukes for good measure. In short, your best bet would be to go hang out in PNG or some other shithole nobody in his right mind would ever waste a nook on. Short of that, it's pretty much gonna be a crapshoot no matter how well-prepared you are. >>43568 oh hey niggerpill >>43580 >just slaps a bandaid on the problem.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdPmpidUbWo MPF is a nice tank. In the future we will see much more >light tanks, simply because ERA and APS systems allow them to have comparable level of protection to MBTs,while having lower logistical footprint and being able to pass through bridges lol
Honestly, I'm slowly convincing myself that a tank with a 155mm main gun makes sense, because if the current conflict in Ukraine is how a major mechanized war looks like in this age, then artillery is all. Something like this: >electric drive with either multiple smaller generators distributed in the hull, or one big engine at the front, the point is to leave a big empty space at the back >said big empty space is for a big magazine where the shells and charges stand vertically >there is also a secondary magazine for rapid fire at the back of the turret, the shells and charges in this one lay horizontally (behind each other) facing towards the breech >there is also a robotic arm or something similar in front of the main magazine, below the turret >the breech of the gun can be depressed under the turret basket for some very high elevation, preferably up to 90 degrees, because why not make it also a SPAAG if we are doing this anyway When the tank fights as a tank should on paper the secondary magazine is used, in this case the gun drops into a specific elevation so that the rammer of the secondary magazine has an easier job. If the secondary magazine is exhausted, then the robotic arm can pick up charges and shells from the main magazine, and with its own fancy bi-directional rammer shove them into the secondary magazine. And if a commander decides that even tanks should partake in artillery duels, then the roboarm can use its aforementioned rammer to load a shell followed by the desired amount of charges into the gun directly from the main magazine. Moreover, it should be able to load the gun at any angle, so that you can do that nice trick of having a bunch of shells impact at the same time. Of course, the two main drawbacks seem to be the size and weight involved with a 155mm howitzer and shells, and the reduced performance compared to a smoothbore gun against armour. I'm no engineer, so all I can say about the first one is that the South Africans apparently managed to make a turret with the G5 howitzer that fits on a T-72, and the Germans put the Panzerhaubitze 2000's turret on the back of an M270, so maybe it is possible to overcome it if you throw enough engineers and money on the problem. As for the rifling, it seems to be somehow overblown, but again, I'm not particularly knowledgable about artillery and tank guns either.

>>47299 Just take something like Msta and give it MTB level armor with best APS you can get and use it as an assault gun. I'm not even kidding, you won't need anything else since 152mm HE shell is enough to knock out any MBT with a frontal hit to gun mantle. Blast will perforate thin roof and snap the neck of the tank by killing the driver , knock out any optics and pretty much ensure mission kill 99% of the time. And 152mm tends to delete large chuncks of building when it hits too. If it preforms good, upgrade the 203mm Pion to be direct fire assault gun too for extra 'tism. I'm sure it would be expensive, complex and heavy as fuck, but fuck it, it sounds fun. Let's go full Imperial Guard aesthetics.

>>47421 Russian soldiers are wearing 10kg weights on their shoulders and additional 10kg weights on their thighs as part of standard issue infantry body armor to prevent deadly injury by shrapnel or fire. That looks like a video of someone getting shrapnel to the eyes, falling face-first into ice-cold water, becoming disoriented, and having too much weight near the top of his body relative to center of mass to correct himself (initial flailing). When he realizes what is going on he tries to re-orient himself because the weights on his thighs are keeping him from just standing back upright like a normal person would in a ditch of ice-cold water. He tries desperately to get a "grip" with his legs on any kind of surface to help right himself, but it seems as if he propelled his upper body into a slightly deeper ditch than where he initially was at which point the weights make it impossible to correct himself.

>>47421 If the DoD backed their research laboritories it's entirely possible they've been training chemists and biologists on the how to of certain CW/BW agents. Spasms are indicative of nerve poisoning, blood coming from the mouth may be indicative of shrapnel to the face, or chlorine gas attacking the lining of the lungs. Cyanid will prevent your blood cells from metabolising oxygen, which will cause you to slip into unconsciousness. This would also affect your muscle function. Nerve spasms cause you to seize to death in the spot you fell after your lethal dose, not flail about as if you have a chance of fighting it. I think it's less likely a piece of shrapnel hit a nerve cluster in his face that would make his lower back and limbs fail to work without having killed him.
split up another large video, this one's a musician guided tour near Bakhmut. >>47454 well alright, I just wasn't sure. >>47459 yea, let's not forget the US bioweapon labs in Ukraine. It all fits together. The Kiev regime basically has carte blanche to commit war crimes, since normalniggers will think it's "disinformation" no matter how well documented and proven, while credulously believing obvious fake&gay ops like Bucha. It reminds me of that interview on youtube with the defected KGB agent, and what he described as demoralization.
