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.

>>21311 >reee chinks bad only held in check by Taiwan and Japan Strelok, at the rate we're going, we're headed for at least 20-220 years of Chinese hedgemony, considering how we can roughly split the world into larger "civilizations" as a whole of the "west" (Euros+US+ ANZAC), Asia, Africa (literally all of it), Latin America, and the "East" (Eastern Europe + Turkey). As the larger "civilizational" empire declines, a new one takes it place while it still technically holds the "empire" notionally. For the west, most empires have an effective time span of 250 years. For Asia, it is a bit longer at 300, but I would consider that due to a lack of "age of intellect" (The most technological/cultural advances were always in an era of disunion and war). Rather, it has an extended age of affluence. Think about it for a second, if we take the life cycle of an empire, the US is currently in the "overextention and decline" era, while the "west" as a whole is as well. Let us look on a Macro scale, remember that nation state empires can fail to overcome the conquest phase and collapse immediately. *Denotes failed power in the conquest phase ! Denotes lack of "decline" and immediate collapse due to external events (Foreign invader, disease) European era (~1400s-YTD): France (987-1792) Portugal (1415-1600s) Spain (1492-1811) British (1503-1783) France!(1804-1814) Germany!

https://yewtu.be/watch?v=oErYYBNCHh4 This is a 6 part retelling of the Pacific war, and it goes into Japanese tactics a bit. Now, one thing I've realized before is that Japs liked bayonet charges so much because the average Japanese company had lots of machine guns and mortars compared to the average chink company, because the latter was often lucky to have anything more than one or two machine guns and enough bolt action rifles for everyone. Of course there were better equipped Chinese units, but those were the exception. It means the Japs could effectively suppress the average enemy unit and charge across an open field, because anyone who started shooting at them would face a whole lot of bullets and grenades flying at him. The average Japanese soldier was also better trained and better fed, so he had a good chance of winning in a bayonet fight. All of these together made the banzai charge an effective tactic there, even if it was somewhat costly in lives. But that wasn't a concern for them. I strongly suspect the chicoms started putting bayonets on their AKs because they were so used to melee that not having a bayonet was not an option for them. But what I really want to say is that Japs really liked infiltration and night attacks, and that is exactly what the chinks were doing during the Korean war. So I wonder, were Chinese tactics based on what they learned fighting the Japanese?
>>17948 >That were genuinely neutral Don't exist during the Cold War. Arguably Bhutan, but they were just a hedonist Buddhist sect camping out in the swamps below the Tibetan mountains. In almost every case where a "neutral" country existed, either America, Russia, or China was involved secretly if not overtly. My personal favorite is Indonesia. Originally the US was filming a fake pornography of the Communist party's leader set up to look as much like him as possible, until militants in Indonesia started launching a coup leading to the political plan being scrapped. Then, the US embassy proceeded to offer "asylum" to the commies being murdered in the streets so that they could hand over a list of names to the Indonesian military, all while claiming to be a "neutral party" in it.
I like the JGSDF wheeled tanks as QRF or expeditionary force. Now I hope some force adopts DMR's sots full power rifle cartridges for everyone. With varying degrees of optics for more specialized roles.

One of the two clauses for grounds for removal from the webring. Not that I'm calling for their removal as it was petty and the damage was minor, but the point still stands.

You should really be ashamed of yourself. For anyone who don't know what this is about, there was a thread named "official 8moe/b/" on the seasonal /christmas/ board which OP literally started with a pic of a dead baby with a Santa hat shopped on his head. The pic was removed after a day or two, and a little later the thread was wiped by the mods as well. Now this absolute prime example of a yid here is going around trying to pin the blame on a board that hasn't had, and still doesn't have, even as much as a thread going on /christmas/. Take note of their antics and be reminded: BLACKED.gov = federal ran, kike controlled enemy of the webring

Board OC video competition Strelok Board volunteer 08/10/2021 (Tue) 00:58:36 No.17990 [Reply]
TL DR: VOL IS RETARDED AND CAN'T VIDEO EDIT. BEST OC VIDEO SUBMITTED BEFORE DEC 14TH GETS FEATURED ON PINNED ON A (NEW) META POST FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. RULES BELOW. First off... Happy Aufbau Ost. I said I'd make a few videos for the board when I had free time when I got a functioning GPU. Well, GPU still missing so I got a pos from 2004.... Took me forever to render this so fuck that and it was $5 for the GPU........ I think personally, that the board needs to break off from the original 8cuck history, since a lot of our banners/oc is from that era... So..... Taking into the spirit, "What's a warboard without conflict?" signage in red, I'll give all you streloks' a little challenge. Create the an oc video for the board to be featured on the intro post for half a year, before I rotate them. The previous video was made by slovak anon here: >>7690 Entry Requirements: >must be less than file limit (20mb), preferably under 10mb >Must be submitted in WEBM format >must be oc >Sound encouraged, not required >focused on board content (If it's interesting I can accept that). >board rules apply, gore in this case means visible organs/limbs/head detached etc. If it's just a dead body I don't think anyone gives a fuck. >must be submitted before Dec 14th, 2021. >real life footage preferred >SCRUB YOUR FILE METADATA If there are no visible quality differences (eg, bad cuts like my POS right there, mismatched audio), I'll put them all into a raffle drawing and draw one as the winner. The rest will be rotated at some interval I'll figure out later (probably annually/ semi-annual)

>>18874 >Also did any nation train bayonets as spears rather than thrusting knifes with a giant handle? My guess is that they didn't for the same reasons that was brought up in the fantasy weapons thread about gun hatchets. Bayonets are typical, if not almost always, directly attached to the barrel which means any stress that that you put on the bayonet would risk bending the barrel ad taking the whole gun out of commission, or at least affecting its performance. If bayonets were attached to the stock instead then that might be a different thing.
>>18871 Anon, we already have a thread dedicated to such things. It even has quite a few posts about bayonets. >>7658

Is this kind of handle practical, or just an example of rule of cool making it into the battlefield?
>>21266 Depends on what you're doing. It's certainly going to slow down switching to your knife because you have to get your fingers in instead of just gripping it. But if you're starting out with it in hand, maybe with a pistol in your other hand, it's pretty good for trench warfare since it allows you to use the front, the side of the handle, and the back of the handle (nice spike) for combat in extremely cramped conditions. Problem being, most people aren't gonna have a knife as a main weapon, and if they have to switch from their main weapon, it better be instantaneous. Maybe for stormtroopers.

And you are supposed to hold it in such a way that the brass is not actually in front if your own knuckles, otherwise the impact might injure your own fingers. Honestly, I'd like to see somebody actually punching things with that knife to see if it works as intended.

Since human life isn't worth anything, lasers as a "non-lethal weapon" are no longer banned as an affront to human dignity.
>>21185 Honestly, all of this shit is completely irrelevant. The fact that weapons are banned doesn't deter anyone who really is on the brink of collapse, and clings to survival. OTOH, isn't everything only banned after the fact only? And no one is judged formally afterward, gas, napalm, DU munitions, lasers... One just has to be really creative, and use the weapon as quickly and effectively as possibly, to gain a significant advantage In war. And when the New bad Weapon™ gets banned, you just shrug your shoulders and say "well, it wasn't banned before, so I technically didn't break any rules".

>>20322 The test she cocked up isn't to measure brittleness or ability to survive low temperatures. That's inherent to the steel itself. It's a thermal shock test to find out if the material was made properly in such a way that it can handle rapid thermal expansion several times. You transfer the materials back and forth between a -X temperature freezer and a +X temperature oven then leave it there for Y minutes to reach temp in order to simulate the effects of rapid thermal expansion over and over again. It's a process integral to making sure launching a torpedo or getting hit by the heat of an explosion won't warp everything. Think that information is publicly available, but for my own sake discussing a general process is legal but discussing hard numbers usually gets the feds on your ass so I won't take the chance. Again, t. Subcontractor who does this testing.
LOOKS LIKE THE NIMITZ IS GETTING UP THERE IN YEARS At the rate we're going, China's going to be winning this war in about a few years with the amount of issues with ships recently. Someone better gear up a few more of those cargo ships stuck waiting for the 7th fleet. https://www.kitsapsun.com/story/news/2021/11/10/uss-nimitz-returns-puget-sound-naval-shipyard-propulsion-plant-problem/6375148001/ https://archive.md/Houy0 >BREMERTON — The USS Nimitz returned home to Puget Sound Tuesday after problems with the ship's propulsion plant cut the first of its sea trials short. >The warship, which returned from a more than 11-month deployment in March, made it only three days at sea in its initial voyage following work this year at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. >On Sunday, the crew "identified a minor material deficiency" in the propulsion plant while the vessel was located in international waters off the west coast, according to Navy Cmdr. Zach Harrell, a spokesman for Naval Air Forces based in San Diego. >"The ship's crew took action to address the deficiency and the ship returned to port," Harrell said. >The commander added that there was no danger to crewmembers. >"The deficiency posed no risk to the ship, the propulsion plant, the ship's crew, or the environment," he said. >The Navy did not release the extent of the problems with the ship's propulsion. But the issues must be addressed before the 1,092-foot-long warship can proceed with the sea trials necessary to ready the crew for deployment. >Harrell said the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard will fully assess the problems and "conduct any necessary repairs prior to the ship's next underway period." >The 1975-commissioned Nimitz is powered by two nuclear reactors that can propel the ship at more than 34 miles an hour, according to the Navy. The steam produced by the reactors has the side benefit of powering catapults on the ship's flight deck to launch its fighter jets and other aircraft. >It's the latest setback for the Navy and the readiness of the fleet. In early October, the USS Connecticut submarine struck an underwater mountain in the South China Sea. The Seawolf-class boat, one of three that conducts some of the country's most important and secretive undersea missions, will head home to Bremerton for repairs at the shipyard. And there are concerns the vaccine mandate may result in some workers leaving jobs at a time when the Navy is struggling to keep the fleet at sea.
Do NATO and the USN have their own Q-Ships/Q-Ship emergency procurement plans to counter militarized Chinamerchants? Would they consider hiring privateers if the USN and PLAN are rendered mutually incapable of policing their sea lanes?

How were armour plates attached and detached? Did ships with external belts have a significant advantage when battle damage had to be repaired?
>>21207 The USN has no modern plans for militarized merchantmen and convoy escorts, unfortunately. During the Cold War they had decided on going the route of extensive dedicated convoy escorts, and that was the job of the OHP class. But those were all done away with for the LCS instead of getting a proper successor like they were supposed to; and now that the LCS has inescapably been proven to even those incompetent idiots to be a complete failure and a waste of time, they are scampering around trying to make a frigate replacement... I cannot say for other NATO navies. >>21211 >How were armour plates attached and detached? Special Bolts and Rivets. Very big rivets. Obviously, it's more complicated than that and the practice differed not only between navies and eras, but between shipbuilders; so it's hard to give a straight and simple answer. For example, one method was to rivet the armor plating to the supporting structure (I-beams, usually) through the (weldable) backing plate, and then weld the backing plates to the I-beams. Another method used bolts set into the armor plate when it was manufactured. Of course, you could combine these two methods, and I believe the USN did that with their ships. A fourth method was just to rivet the armor plate directly to the structure and essentially bolt the armor into the structure itself so it became part of it, this was the Japanese cruiser method. >Did ships with external belts have a significant advantage when battle damage had to be repaired? Yes, very significant. Replacing the armor belt of an externally armored ship was comparatively quite simple, as all you had to do was remove the belt and replace it. While not fun at all and rarely done, it was actually possible to perform this out in the middle of the ocean if you had the right auxiliary ships. With internally armored belts, you had to remove all of the covering material first in a non-destructive manner; you basically had to have a full on port-side drydock to perform this.

New question: Since I consider the glockalike trigger to be mushy nonsense, and I like my memories of the 1911 I shot once a long time ago, do you think I should pursue building a P320? I see JSD is having a sale, and seems to still have the parts in stock. I'm hoping since the "module" that houses all the gun parts is pure metal that the trigger will be crisper. Maybe not as crisp as the AR15, but I'm also noticing that building a P320 will cost easily double, if not triple building another glockalike. Of course I'd rather have one well built 1911 than three glockalikes but that's a different tale.
Someone needs to design a 3-D printable drum magazine of about 40-60 round capacity for .22LR ammo. Not for any existing weapon, but for something /like/ the FGC-9 or some kind of Sten-like weapon, only made in .22LR so that ammunition is actually affordable in bulk even in cucked nations like Australia or whatever as long as you have the paperwork for legal funz, and people are not forced to rely on existing magazines like the FGC-9 needs (remember, for shitty nofunz countries).

Kusarigama and Other Ninja Gear Strelok 11/14/2021 (Sun) 10:24:43 No.20438 [Reply]
The kusarigama confuses me. The design itself is perfectly reasonable: It's a flail with a short-range weapon attached for when you get a bit too intimate with your enemy. It leaves me wondering why European flails didn't have a spike on the handle just in case, but whatever. No, the confusing thing about the kusarigama is why a sickle of all things? Why not use a kunai, a hatchet or a pick instead? They are typically seen as ninja weapons and in that regard the obvious answer is to use the sickle as a grappling hook. However, a Japanese sickle would be an absolutely shit grappling hook because the shaft is longer than the blade is wide and that's the opposite of what you want. And even if you do manage to catch something, you're going to be putting half your bodyweight directly onto your carefully sharpened blade so now all you've got is a shitty warpick. A normal pick would make an excellent hook, with the downside of losing your throat-slitting capability. And as for skirting ATF-san? Do you really think your local glow-kokujin is going to believe you when you tell him that you thresh your grain with a meteor flail, and that you do it out in the rice paddy? It would be perfect if you could just stick the chain on with a bow shackle, but I don't know if the nips had anything quite that convenient back then.

>>20438 Something I could see is the chain being detachable in some manner or other, like the metal bit on the butt the chain is fixed to being fixed to the wood by a pin you can pop out with a quick hammerblow. That way, you could easily claim it's just an agricultural tool, as long as you stuff the chain down your pants or something. Ninja weapons in general seem impractical on purpose, requiring huge amounts of training to use effectively, with the idea being that the enemy guards would be unlikely to have much experience fighting against them, while the ninja has experience fighting against the standard katana. As for spikes on European flails: The chain was a good deal shorter there, the flail itself was a short-range weapon. Benefit being, it's much less likely to bash your own head in, so it requires less training.
>>20438 >going to believe you when you tell him that you thresh your grain with a meteor flail Seems like the best cover would be to learn how to thresh grain with the thing. "You thresh grain with that thing?" "You're damn skippy." "The hell you do." "Okay, stand back mother fucker, you're about to see how a pro handles some grain."

>>20438 >No, the confusing thing about the kusarigama is why a sickle of all things? Kama are good weapons and used by themselves, either solo or in pairs. Kusarigama combines the kama with another weapon, the kusarifundo, which is basically something like a slungshot. Putting the two together lets you use both weapons at once. You can also throw the sickle part instead of the weight. There's even a variation of the kusarigama that uses two sickles. Basically it combines a hard weapon with a soft weapon. It's not even the only sort of that kind of weapon either. Also importantly kama and chains or ropes are perfectly reasonable items for peasants to have that aren't likely to get you assraped by a local samurai for having a forbidden weapon. Peasants need to cut grain and weeds. Everyone can use cains or ropes for everyday tasks. >Why not use a kunai Kunai is primarily a digging tool and occasionally an impromptu spearhead or piton for climbing. I guess you could use it a s a rope dart too. But they were made of soft iron so they didn't hold an edge very well.
You're putting the cart before the horse, OP. A ninja pretended to be a buddhist monk or peasant farmer most of the time and rarely if ever stepped foot into ninja garb. The reason their weapons are like that is because they are arguably farming implements (or made to look like farming implements) first and foremost, and weapons second.
>>20511 That first pic does not look like a paint brush to induce blood loss to me. Looks like a crude Cave painting that a caveman thought up. The second one I assume it was common for Samurai to fine you excessively and make you go broke when they find you have any part of this. ( ‵▽′)ψ
