Camo and other clothing Strelok 05/31/2020 (Sun) 21:06:19 No.1085 [Reply] [Last]
Camo, jackets, hats, paint, shoes, and etc. go in this thread. The rule of thumb for camo is that if you don't know what to get, you want a general camo, your options are limited, or you're on a budget just get flecktarn. ATACS and SS-Leto are god-tier for lush environments, and alpenflage, strichtarn, and multicam are good for drier areas. M05 Winter for Winter.

Hypothetically speaking, If I became the leader of a country tomorrow, what would be the best course of action to equip the entire nation of men women and children with guns? What easy to manufacture, cheap and reliable weapon systems could I use to arm over a million people in a short time period? Should I go the route of using standard NATO calibers and basing the rifle off of the ar-18 or should I use/develop another caliber to compete with the new next generation weapons systems made by the USA or just bring back 7.92mm kurz for the lulz? The weapons would be used for guerilla warfare in case of an enemy invasion or general defense of the citizen and his property, sorta like Switzerland. We also need camo, gas masks, helmets and uniforms for everyone in the country so what would be the best solution for that too?

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.

Certain members of congress have an important job: funneling federal shekels back to their district in the form of military spending. Projects getting cancelled typically means jobs are lost at home which can jeopardize the congress critter's reelection, and as is their nature they put their own interests ahead of the nation at large.

>>20567 looking pretty good. personally id say the bit about the side arm being unimportant in the gearfag 101 part is a bit dismissive of perfectly capable fighting tools. way I've always viewed it is your pistol can be a side arm but it can also be a 2nd primary weapon if the situation requires it. this is mostly only relevant to direct action type shit as most of my experience revolves around SWAT shit but if you have a person in cuffs or otherwise under control you need one hand to keep them under control so a rifle rapidly becomes a bad choice. the same applies to using a ladder either when getting over a perimeter wall or gaining access to a balcony. you need to keep one hand on the ladder so you don't fall off which leaves you with only one hand to operate a weapon. this is where pistols really shine. i personally feel that pistols should be practiced one handed as often as possible as it becomes much more versatile then. you should add a strategy about using an ear dropper or squirt gun to get fentanyl on people like a mossad agent for the agent 47 inclined individuals. also definitely don't recommend people getting bump keys to steal shit from patrol cars.

>>20567 Yo. You recommended acquiring access to the Grantville Gazettes for having some idea as to how to re-establish technology after a capital-C Collapse. Can you tell me which specific ones I should get? If you can zip all the relevant ones up and post it in fileditch or in this thread, that would be great as well. Thanks in advance. I am mostly asking this because libgen.rs has 68 pages worth of Grantville Gazette issues and it would take a eternity and a half to download them all unassisted.
>>20567 >New version I've been working on the fruit/nut tree guide, if you could read whats on it and tell me anything you can't understand as a layman I'll add it in next revision when I'm not busy wageslaving
>>21316 >personally id say the bit about the side arm being unimportant in the gearfag 101 part is a bit dismissive of perfectly capable fighting tools. way I've always viewed it is your pistol can be a side arm but it can also be a 2nd primary weapon if the situation requires it. I wouldn't exactly call it a "2nd primary" - it is a niche weapon for when your primary is incapacitated or too big for what you're doing. >if you have a person in cuffs or otherwise under control you need one hand to keep them under control so a rifle rapidly becomes a bad choice. If they are under control (in the context of SHTF) I'm not going to be within 6ft of them, and if they run or try to fight they're getting a bullet, not my hands on them. There is no reason to go hands-on with someone with unknown fighting ability, especially when there won't be any investigation into their (self-inflicted by stupidity) death. >using a ladder either when getting over a perimeter wall or gaining access to a balcony. you need to keep one hand on the ladder so you don't fall off which leaves you with only one hand to operate a weapon. this is where pistols really shine. i personally feel that pistols should be practiced one handed as often as possible as it becomes much more versatile then. Agreed, or if you are checking say, a car boot - but again, this is because the primary weapon is too big and is temporarily laid aside. If you want to re-write the "gearfag 101" thing please do - my PC went KIA and I'm still looking for a substitute copy of MS Word so I can prepare the next edition and other stuff. I only included those infographics as it beat re-writing the whole thing myself, but I've always meant to go back and re-write it and edit it to fit in with the "Selecting Personal Equipment" stuff in Chapter 6 (page 232 of version 2.1.2). Check what I have on page 217 on version 2.1.2 - it describes the safest known low-tech method of searching a prisoner or body. The searcher does not need to be armed, and in fact, being armed means they are likely to take unnecessary risks and remain too close to the prisoner if they do start to resist. It is the cover man's job to use violence if the prisoner resists. >>21384 I'll create a pdf of the non-fiction stuff I used when I can and I'll post it here. >>21371

what's the TRUTH about swimming? does swimming itself make a swimmer's body? or are the "swimming denialists" right when they say that those people already had that body to begin with? Am I to lift too, to look good? what happens if I swim at a quick pace for 4 hours every day? what are the differences in training between having a sprint-swimmer body,and a long-distance swimmer body? >once this lockdown shit is over i'll sign up to swim 5 hours a day 6 days a week >how do I get a tactical swimmer body? need I also lift? >how do I learn to hold my breath underwater for 90 seconds?
swimming is basically upper body cardio which is important just like lower body cardio. just replace some of your run days with swim days if you are active. 5 hours of swimming a day is very excessive. maybe 1 hour every few days.

The frogs started to standardize their artillery in the 17th century, and kept improving the basic ideas until the middle of the 19th century: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Jacques_Keller https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florent-Jean_de_Valli%C3%A8re https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gribeauval_system https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_XI_system https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Val%C3%A9e_system Alas, it looks like wikipedia has the most detailed descriptions of them on the English language internet.
Could modern 155mm guns (and their Warsaw pact equivalents) deal with an old school star fortress? I know they were a problem for German field artillery during ww1, and they were still a somehow though nut during ww2. And you can actually find a few of them in Eastern Europe even today, so it they have a small chance of ending up in the front lines soon.
>>21332 Fairly easily, really. I mean, it'd be a question of amassing enough of the guns to have the desired effect within a quick time frame, but it's something virtually any of the third tier powers or higher could pull off. Any of the second and first tier powers, however, would instead just bomb the place to obliteration.
>>20870 Speaking of French artillery, vbbsmyt finally uploaded a new video, and it's about their 75mm gun.

GFS - Gardening, Food acquisition and Stock keeping thread Strelok 07/30/2021 (Fri) 17:19:58 No.17689 [Reply]
Greetings Streloks, as anounced in >>17677, this is the thread about gardening, acquiring food and keeping stocks for long(er) Term survival. the main topics for this thread are -growing food for long term survival. -harvesting wild food if gardening is not an option for whatever reason. -legal and illegal food acquisition in areas where gardening is hard or undoable or in the case of insufficient skills. -wild gardening/guerilla gardening as alternative ways of growing food without owning land. >What is the purpose of the info ITT? This thread is aimed at providing information to every Strelok, on how to provide his own food, wether it is only for himself, or for a large fighting force. This is not only important for Post-collapse scenarios, but also an important factor of gaining freedom by independence from the government and society. >what does this have to do with /k/? At the time of the thread creation, /k/ is the board for weapons, combat and outdoorsmanship. A part of every armed conflict is the provisioning of food for the combatants to upkeep morale and fighting ability. Knowing how to grow and how to acquire food in any conditions is an important part of sustaining a fighting force, as the past has shown that a hungry soldier cannot win a conflict, and looting, even if an option, is only a short term solution, that cannot fully replace a stable supply of fresh provisions. Therefore, i see this as a quite important, and unfortunately overlooked aspect of /k/. >What goes in regards to posting. I'm not playing janny, but i'd prefer to keep this thread focused on the 4 main topics at the beginning of the Post. Related questions and discussion are welcome, and as long as it stays roughly on topic, i see the threads purpose as fulfilled.

>>21140 >zone 8 Just be careful of thrips/aphids/whiteflies. In addition, day length is more important for onions that most climactic requirements. I believe the majority of the cotton belt states can only grow short/intermediate day onion . Make sure to save seeds and rotate so you don't get pink root (soil borne fungal disease), that shit is a bitch to remove without EPA banned chemicals (Methyl Bromide). As for dividing where to plant short/intermediate onions, intermediate for the northern portion, on USDA 7-8 border on the red river.
