>>5961 hopefully this formatting won't turn out too reddit tier, but i tried to make it less cancerous than a large text block >high altitude at 15,000 feet. >what are you smoooooking????? That statement that they have more red bloodcells is partially incorrect. Having more redblood cells is actually a cause for alt sickness in people. High altitude dwellers in Asia Mainly Tibet/Nepal, not sure if Indians have high denisovan ancestry, E. Asia doesn't at least have double the nitrous oxide in blood and double the blood vessel density in the limbs (esp the arms) in ADDITION to the EPAS1. NO2 casues vasodilation which is thus responsible for the increased bloodhound. Obvious the gene has its tradeoffs. I'm not geneticist so I don't understand the whole part about EPAS1 inhibiting reproduction (something about Hybrid incompatibility). Also, you probably don't want to suffer health issues at sea level probably (Tibetans can and will get a sort of "oxygen poisoning" if they stay at sea level for too long and it supposedly leads to cardiovascular issues if the chinese paper is to be trusted. Personal experience warning, you might drop dead before me at higher altitudes. Strelok, I've been at 19,000+ for a day before. You need to acclimate and it IS partially dependent on genetics outside of the EPAS1 gene and be physically fit and not too tall or male no women on /k/ lets be honest. Although even in alpine populations below 16,000, the genes in the Tibetan population still have issues coping with cardiovascular issues (heart attacks will kill most males in range age 35-45 in Tibet. The hardest transition is around the 10,000 feet area to be honest (3000 meters), average people have their heart rate skyrocket to around 110 and the O2 oxygenation drop to the low 80s on a good day. I had a heart rate of 75 and a O2 of 96. Personally for the average strelok without muh superior alpine genes and isn't a fat fuck, I think the highest effective combat altitude would be around 14700 feet (4500m). Sure you can carry a combat load possibly up to 16400, but take it from someone who was physically who acclimated well, I could barely run past 16,400 feet. And at 17,000 its a nightmare, it felt like trying to run with pneumonia and walking badly through ice. I have bradycardia and hypotension, and at that altitude my heart rate was damn near 87 resting with 130s/90s at 17,000 with only a regular set of clothes and some water on me.. Thankfully in burgerland we don't have that much of a altitude shitshow here except in california. Also, unless your from Papa New Guinea or Tibet aka high Denisovan anscestry you won't have those genes. Basically non-existent in most europeans unless you're russian or maybe finnish. > tl;drUnless you live in Alaska, leaflandl injun territory, or south central spicland mexico proper not the southern US you only need to worry about mount whitney in commiefornia at 14,505 feet.

Gun purchases. Panic buying new fags. And other shit. Strelok 07/28/2020 (Tue) 23:30:07 No.4526 [Reply] [Last]
Alright faggots. 2020 so far has been fun and it created a ton of new fags for the gun community. Now this board is likely not the first, second, or third place a new fag will come for gun advice. So this is not that thread. So have any of you: Bought a gun sometime this year? Bought a piece of gear like an optic or maybe even armor? Helped someone buy a gun? Teach someone how to not anhero? Or did you laugh and call someone a faggot for not buying earlier? Did a family member or friend or coworker become a total retard the second they got their first gun? either turning into an internet tough guy or saying I'm a 2A person now """"""BUT"""""" Were you planning to buy something but just said fuck it due to the lines and/or couldn't because of stripped bare shelves? Do any of you happen to work in a gun store and did you get fun phone calls from people in shitholes asking to buy a fun and have it delivered to their doors? Do you live and work in a shithole and have the fun of explaining the hoops they have to jump through? Did you explain the hoops and obstacles with a shit eating grin on your face? I've been trying to get two friends to get a gun for a while now and neither have made the effort to even get a wood stick for defense even though one said he wanted a fun for possible shtf reasons way before gook aids was a thing. Some people can't get motivated by seeing hordes of retards talk about spreading the fun I guess. I've helped two boomer age pencil pushers by taking them to the range and letting them fire an okay amount I think of self defense oriented guns (AR, shotguns, DA\SA and striker fired handguns, a revolver also) and got paid for it too. They had a bit of a reaction upon seeing the AR A3/A4 20 inch style but after handling the shotguns and handguns they warmed up real quick to it. Lines had been forming outside of gun shops when this all kicked off, sometimes wrapping around the block while the rain was pouring. I figured I would wait for the panic buying to calm down and thought I'd be safe since the gun I've been wanting was either a Ruger sp101 or a Smith and Wesson J-frame thinking plastic blasters and shotguns would be the only things that would be hard to restock. But then a wonderful culture spreader got subtracted from the diversity interaction statistics, and for now I won't be able to larp as a 30s detective or CC in a plastic dog shit bag in hand while blasting a home made pharmaceuticals enthusiast if it ever comes to it.

>>4526 Poorfag here. Noguns. I live in a bad state. I'm not yet 21 and it's looking like I'm going to be shit out of luck, sadly. I'm hoping I can scrape together some money soon. Get a cheap rifle. Probably a Henry AR7 since it's the cheapest I can legally get, and it'll takedown and fit in a bag since I don't want to have problems with people about it. So I'd rather they not even know I have one. When I turn 21 I'd like to get a RIA M206 revolver. again, really cheap. Bad idea or what? I turn 21 only after election day. So I would rather at least have something before then.
>>5687 If you can, get a 10-22 takedown instead of the Henry. It's a lot more versalite. A .38 revolver is a great choice but you can probably just get any old used one that's in decent shape and feels solid. Doesn't have to be that specific model. If you are getting the M206 for conceal, go for the spurless if possible.
>>5687 >RIA M206 Pretty sweet. Just know that RIA sometimes contradict themselves when the +P question comes up. Common sense would say that yes it could handle +P but not consistently the same way a classic gun from long ago could probably but you wouldn't want to fuck one of those up, which realistically wouldn't matter since the 206 is about blasting it in anger and then forgetting about it in the evidence locker while you go ogle some other new guns.
Bought a redhawk early this year along with an SLR106, overall bretty good
>>5367 A ptr is probably best bang for your buck in the battle rifle market. Ar10s are good nice too and if you can afford 6.5creed it's a tack driver. >>5687 A ruger 10-22 is probably the best .22lr option. Getting a child sized .22 bolt action is unironicly a solid option for an extremely light and small rifle that will kill as good as any other .22lr.

US Navy Ship on Fire for Two Days Straight Strelok 07/14/2020 (Tue) 04:40:10 No.4168 [Reply] [Last]
1,000-degree blaze continues to rage aboard Navy ship in San Diego The fire has brought down the USS Bonhomme Richard's forward mast. More than 400 sailors are working to put out the massive fire that continues to rage aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard in San Diego and Navy officials are unclear how long the blaze might continue to burn.nThe fire has brought down the amphibious assault ship's forward mast and caused other damage to the ship's superstructure that rises above its flight deck. "There is a tremendous amount of heat underneath and that's where it's -- it's flashing up -- also forward, closer to the bow again there's a heat source and we're trying to get to that as well," Rear Adm. Philip Sobeck, the commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 3 said at a news conference Monday in San Diego. Sobeck said that the temperatures in the fire's heat sources are reaching as high as 1,000 degrees. With temperatures that high, the sailors are rotating in on 15-minute firefighting shifts. Asked if he believes the ship could be saved, Sobeck said, "I feel absolutely hopeful because we have sailors giving it their all." He also expressed confidence that the fire will not get close to the ship's supply of one million gallons of fuel, which lies two decks below the blaze. The fire continues to cause damage to the the ship's superstructure, which rises above its flight deck and has brought down one of the two masts that tower above. Sobeck acknowledged that the ship's Halon fire suppression system -- which could have put out the initial fire -- was not activated because it was also receiving maintenance. "We again augment that with firefighting elements from the pier and the shipyard," said Sobeck. Teams of sailors were pouring water onto the ship from the pier and from tugboats along its side. Navy helicopters have also dropped 415 buckets of water on the ship to contain the fire, much as they have done in the past to help put out wildfires. There were 57 sailors injured after the fire started aboard the ship on Sunday, most have been treated for exhaustion and smoke inhalation. A U.S. official told ABC News that the last five individuals who remained hospitalized have been released from the hospital.

>>4212 Looking at the damage, in all likelihood the US just lost an LHD, at the dock in peacetime. For one thing, if they can't put out an accidental fire in port, do they really expect to be able to survive combat? For another, what does this mean for the F-35? The ship was in the middle of a "deep maintenance cycle", which by my understanding includes the upgrades meant to ready it for F-35B deployment. >>4304 The fire is finally out now.
>>4306 >For another, what does this mean for the F-35? Not much given almost every branch of the military is converting or building everything to conform to the various F-35s they have.
The news is about a month old now, but as of August 26 the Navy was reporting that they considered the fire an arson and that they were investigated accordingly.

>>5225 Losing fat mostly boils down to calories in, calories out. Eating less and cutting out all processed crap is a good place to start. >sugar companies It's just the other end of the spectrum and their propaganda (ketofags). Although, the nutritional science of all fat = bad did turn out to be bullshit in the 2000s despite running until the late 90s. Margarine is just fat. Plant based fat, but fat regardless. Sometimes less fat than butter, which is pure butterfat, as margarine usually has water mixed in with it, so less calories. I don't think fat minimisation is specifically a bad thing, as you can usually find plenty of fat in meat and eggs already which you should always be eating, so trimming it in other areas and doubling down on salads instead is fine. I don't think the traditional idea of having your plate be 50% carb, 25% meat, 25% salad (alternatively a third each, or 10% less carb and put that into meat and salad) is a particularly bad place to start, even if it goes way deeper than that. >juice You might as well drink sugar water, juice is not much more than that but with some vitamins and fibre. Better to eat fruit directly. I just drink probably a few litre of tea every day since it's what I enjoy and there's zero proven ill effects from it. Alcohol is proven to be a good digestive aid, wine, cider and dark beer specifically, so a drink after a meal no more than once a day or once every other day is fine. Other anon mentioned plain coffee. I think saying it's good for you is walking a line, the caffeine is one thing but the acidity probably harms your digestive health if in too great quantities. Just opinion. >Also is sugarless as in no sugar or sweetener added ice cream acceptable? I'm not a fan of non-fermented dairy products, milk doesn't contain much more than calcium, sugar and fat. In limited quantities it won't be bad, but since ice cream is a rather concentrated product you are probably just better off eating nuts and raisins if all you want is a snack. My opinion is that nutritional science is still a bit of a mess and as it happens, it's simply everyone else's opinion and them trying to win over other people. Take everything with a grain of salt.

>>5225 > Is animal fat bad for you if you are trying to lose body fat? No, unless you're eating large amounts. Lean meat has a little fat, but it's not excessive. > sugar companies paid off scientists to say bad things about fat so they could sell more sugar and margarine. Kind of true, yes, but not quite so clear-cut as that sounds. Sugar is a shitty thing to eat because it causes insulin spikes- most people with diabetes have it because of their shitty, high-sugar diet. > besides water, what would you recommend? Water. Buy a water filter if your local tapwater tastes like ass. A little booze now and then, in moderation. > Is home made orange juice or grape juice okay? Probably, as an occasional treat. Go easy on it though. > Also is sugarless as in no sugar or sweetener added ice cream acceptable? I'd suggest no more than one ice-cream cone a week, occasionally.

Autistic ideas Strelok 08/21/2020 (Fri) 16:45:14 No.5117 [Reply] [Last]
The subject says it all, so I shall start it with this one: .338 Lapua Magnum with a rebated rim, and an advanced primer ignition machine gun to go with it. If you don't know what that means, then kikepedia can help you out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowback_%28firearms%29#Advanced_primer_ignition_%28API%29_blowback But the tl;dr is that it's a simple blowback mechanism that ignites the gunpowder while the cartridge is still travelling forward, and that means the bolt can be a lot lighter. Now, this machine gun would be meant for vehicles first and foremost, because there is already a small push for .338 machine guns anyway, but that one design seems to be way too complex for vehicle use, especially if you put next to it a blowback machine gun. And in theory you could refit any weapon chambered for .338 LM to fire this new cartridge simply by modifying or replacing the bolt and otherwise leaving alone the weapon.

>>5304 Seems like a problem you can solve with a barrage of cheap unguided missiles running alongside it. Though at that point why bother with the guided ones?
>externally powered Hotchkiss revolving machine gun Rather self-explanatory: take the Hotchkiss revolving cannon, redesign it to for a rifle cartridge, and then add a belt-feeding device and an electric motor to it. The actual mechanism has significantly fewer parts inside than the Gatling, and a it wouldn't need a delinker: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=cQEs6i4fwLA A nice bonus is that the barrel is stationary in the moment of firing, therefore it should be relatively accurate. I think a version with just 3 barrels wouldn't be an overkill even for a tank or an IFV, and with an electric motor you could easily vary the rate-of-fire for your needs. >pseudo belt-fed sniper rifle Real super hyper elite snipers use their rifles as single-shot weapons, because keeping the ammunition in the magazine might change its temperature, thus affecting the ballistics. So make a a precision rifle with no magazine but a belt-feeding device specifically designed to be useful for single loading. You place a single cartridge where you'd place the first one of the belt, work the bolt, and now it's loaded. And you can place a second one in the belt-feeding device if you need an immediate follow-up shot for whatever reason. But if once in your lifetime you need to fire 5 or 10 or 20 or even more shots in quick succession with that rifle, then you can use a belt. Really, it's just an excuse to give snipers a single-shot rifle without actually giving them one.
>>5459 >take the Hotchkiss revolving cannon, redesign it to for a rifle cartridge >rifle cartridge Weak. Why not scale it up to Russian 57mm ammo like the S-60 AA gun uses?
>>5461 Why not make it fire the Schwerer Gustav's 80cm shells? Because I want something that would be actually practical, and a Hotchkiss is much better than this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheinmetall_RMG_7.62

Is it true that Germany kicked off WW2 ahead of their re-armament schedule? If so, how big of a difference would it have made it they hadn't fallen for the bait until they were properly prepared?
>>5403 They have bigger problems than the Abwehr, and the Abwehr was iirc, irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
>>5406 I'm not an expert, but reading through a wiki page on him and the Abwehr, I am actually shocked that anyone put up with the bullshit from him and his branch. There are no scenarios in which an intelligence agency actively opposing and undermining your war effort and politics is "irrelevant". Even if they simply under perform, that's still devastating because you're still losing out on actually having functional intelligence gathering and counter espionage capabilities. Germany's military failures are probably mostly due to being utterly outclassed by perfidious albion's spooks. Probably more so than any other single reason.
>>5405 Yes, they were in middle of their re-armament program when the war started. As to how big of a difference it would have made, well the Soviets would have been in Berlin if they were given a two or three years after communist in Germany started their shitshow, supported by France, Great Britain, and to some extend power-tripping Polish leadership. It was fairly commonly believed that the communist in German society and military would have started causing a shitshow back in 1941 after the war with the Soviet Union started. Troops getting to see the wonders of communism first hand and telling what they saw to the civilian population fixed that problem quickly enough.
>>5400 >Malta was a particularly hilarious case. The bongs thought the island indefensible and therefore took it falling for granted while the Germans thought Malta an indestructible fortress that had to be navigated around. >If they had done even a little bit of recon, they could ave secured a safe supply route to the Afrikakorps which would have helped Rommel immensely. It also didn't help that the Germans refused to give the Italians sufficient fuel to properly operated in the med. The RM were by far the most competent branch of the Italian armed forces and taking Malta would have hinged on them anyway. >The overall lack of strategic planning in the OKH was at times truly baffling. >The same indecisiveness resulted in the strategic failure of Barbarossa in which none of the three strategic targets were achieved which ultimately led to Stalin's victory. In general the Prussian model was excellent tactically/operationally but poor strategically. That meant they consistently won battles but lost wars, at least against anyone who had staying power or who couldn't be defeated with a single decisive blow. >>5405 A delay until 1941 would have been even more useful for the Italians who frankly could have waited even as the war actually happened had Mussolini not been obsessed with winning his seat at the negotiation table which would have potentially provided a decent ally for once.

>>5271 Yep. The more decentralized you can make an institution while keeping yourself at the top, the more profit there is to be made/power to be held. This is why most organized crime tends to be exceptionally bottom-up structures given the fact that they're only ruled by a select few. You might want (not need but want) a more centralized financial base/power base to invest in a more trained military for operations into neighbors (bread and circuses), but the more you rely on your local warlords or community leaders to handle local issues while only fulfilling the bare minimum of your end of the contract (namely, providing them protection), most folks don't mind paying a more powerful group to deal with invaders and trouble makers while otherwise being left to their own devices. Plus you can just turn any rebellious elements into sex slaves/soylent green for the rest of the population and no one (who matters) will complain.

NEW SHIT HOT SHIT Thread to discuss new research projects, developments, adoptions, and procurements of /k/ related material. JAPAN: "Type 20" Rifle unveiled = Improved Drainage, Pistol Renewed May 18th http://archive.is/3oiGh https://trafficnews.jp/post/96397 Translated by anon >The Ground Self Defense Forces unveiled newly adopted Type 20 5.56mm rifle and 9mm Pistol SFP 9 to the press on the 18th. The new rifle has been outfitted with use in remote island defence operations in mind, with improvements in drainage and corrosion resistance, in addition to a new stock with adjustable cheek riser and stock extension. The new rifle is to be adopted by infantry regiments of the various army groups and the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade. >The current rifle (Type 89) was introduced in 1989, and pistol (P220) in 1982, both being renewed for the first time in 31 and 38 years respectively. The Ministry of Defence plans to acquire 3283 new Type 20 rifles and 323 SFP9 pistols within the year. >The new rifle is made by Howa Industries (Aichi Pref. Kiyosu City). It is capable of firing 30 rounds continuously [sic], and maintains the famous "ア・タ・レ (translates to HIT)" selector markings (安全・アンゼン=Safe)・タ(単発・タンパツ=Single Shot)・レ(連射・レンシャ=Automatic Fire)". The rifle has a grip on the forend improving manipulation [sic]. The new pistol is made by Heckler and Koch of Germany and carries 15 rounds. The grip is far more ergonomic and it is capable of single handed magazine extraction. With sexy andguards with MLOK slots, cringepods, and journalists who know so little about firearms and picatinny rails, you can all marvel how the Japanese rearmament continues cheerfully.

They get shilled that it will be easy due to their superiority in material but also contradictingly that it is a dire threat to the national body. Neither is true but both are necessary to defend the lies of the political court. Army gets mauled, war costs more than anyone planned, soldiers get nothing in the end because the top gets paid first. There is no reckoning of leadership and no accounting of grievances; the objective was to conserve the decay for another generation.
>>4853 TBH the biggest hurdle to any sort of entrenched tyranny is true "education". I'm not talking the current tier bs they pull, I'm talking someone who has been very well versed in history (to see the mistakes of the past), logic (to deduce the fallacies they use), and rhetoric (because muh ad hominem). It's scarry how we are mirroring the later Roman republic era, especially if you subsitute the rape/racist allegations with sexual deviancy being a bottom gay bitch in roman courts... The question is, who is Marius and who is Sulla? >>4863 The question is has the US reached the limits of spoils that can be acquired from abroad with relative ease? I think the answer is no. Not for another few years I think.
>>4872 The US could still attain the spoils if it focused on one enemy at a time, however when its forces are stretched across the globe, like when the Roman Army became a giant border guard, it decays as a warfighting force to become an occupation force. Diminishing returns at the frontier and internal disorder would force the return of military forces from abroad to maintain domestic order. The curtailment of democratic rights would further continue to preserve government power. The US would ironically become much like the authoritarian regimes it loves to criticize, and the likelihood is that a fall will take many years as such an arrangement can be maintained for decades before meeting its fate. The party system will be of no difference as both serve the same interests, the allegiance of leadership holding purely nominal value. Like the Western Roman Empire plodding along while its citizens became the indentured serfs of the medieval era, though one can only guess at the force which would end central authority in Washington. Perhaps a corporate coup executed by disloyal mercenary companies, as such a conspiracy against the presidency had existed before. At present the United States government derives its legitimacy at a surface level from the consent of the governed, but once the governed have been converted into slaves their consent will no longer be of necessity for effective rule.
