what's a war board without a conflict?

I have a (hypothetical) scenario for you /k/ Strelok 03/27/2021 (Sat) 08:30:45 No.14377 [Reply]
Post the hypothetical WW3 or collapse of the world as we know it, the world has been thrown into neverending anarchy and majority of land inhabbitable. But a "few" nat-socs/fascists have created a time machine to stop this from happening. They have many equipment from all over the world, people from all over the white and asian world. But they aren't as much diffrent in idealogy And also have some plans for nuclear weapons. Let's say their manpower is around 1 million. They of course want to help the Third reich to win the second WW2. Where and when, should they go? How would it work out for them? Pic semi-unrelated

>>14476 >Because a group of retards in larp surplus bumbling about top level military interna would likely go through as a band of deranged and dangerous gipsies? I never said that it takes right after the 3rd world war. It can 50 or even 100 years after that. While yeah after 100 years majority of modern weapons will be broken, but this is hypothetical scenario.
>>14476 >a group of retards in larp surplus bumbling about top level military interna Streloks volunteering for time travel wouldn't be that dumb, r-right?
>>14377 >help the Third reich The only practical way for the axis to win the second world war that's not through fiat or deus ex machina is not to start it in the first place, and convincing them to do this would be a hell of a task. Nuclear weapons plans are nothing if you haven't the fissile material to use in them, and getting that is the hardest part of building them. Bonus points though, if your operatives get them not only to not start the war, but convince the rest of the allies that Stalin is the bigger threat. Hell, Churchill hated Stalin far more than he disliked Hitler. So, everyone goes to war against gommunism, and then they'd probably end up with their lebensraum anyhow after Europe got chewed up by the war against the Soviets. Then you could just settle in and watch the slow and eventual progress toward the current year, which would probably end up more-or-less the same but with a different-ish Europe. All roads lead to clown world.
>>14537 No they don´t and building centrifuges isn´t that hard if that´s what you mean. If not I´m telling you now that all of the soviet nuclear weapons uranium came from germany and the czechs. Winning the war is also quiet easy as you just have to convince the german to give a fuck about molotov-ribbentrop = keep all of poland plus secure the baltics before the soviets do provoke them to attack, bled them out in the logistical no mans land that is eastern europe and then just win with the persian gulf oil you secured beforehand to keep the waiting bearable. Bonus: you will also receive american lend lease and the brits will be forced to peace out under your conditions.

QTDDTOT-Axe Repair Edition Strelok 10/08/2020 (Thu) 05:07:21 No.7036 [Reply] [Last]
Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread I'll start. I decided recently to fix up this old axe I found a few years ago. I got some rust converter to do the job but then after I took a closer look I realized that it has a big crack all the way through on the back of the eye. How do I fix this shit? Can I just heat it up and weld it back together blacksmith style?

>>14650 I'd add CMMG and Windham Weaponry to mid-tier. Strike Industries is really hit or miss with their stuff- a lot of their accessories are actually pretty good, such as their muzzle brakes and aluminum hand stops, but getting stuff such as actual free float rails might cause you trouble
>>14650 >mega arms is gone forever
>>14651 CMMG I forgot to add but I do appreciate them for color-coding their LPK packets, the new radial-delayed blowback system, & I do want to try that 22LR system they designed as a complete BCG set. For Windham Wyndham? Weaponry, all I heard was that the old Bushmaster team responsible for delivering a decent AR moved into that company so I could use more info. >>14652 I got you fam, ZEV technologies just recently announced that they brought back Mega Arms with some of their lowers & uppers for sale.
>>14680 Windham is just a completely standard AR manufacturer that QCs their shit and has cool dissipator uppers. They are the remnants of old Bushmaster. Pricing is decent. Being boring as shit is a lot better than being jank. Also add Spike's Tactical to okay tier.
>>14681 Gotcha, and all I know for Spike's were those meme lower receivers, but usually people say their comparable to Aero in terms of quality & price.

"Safe" Landmines Strelok 02/14/2021 (Sun) 09:30:17 No.13226 [Reply]
As we all know, landmines are a clusterfuck. Any retard with a garden trowel can plant one then forget about it a month later, yet the nasty little cunt will still gib his grandson 4 decades later. Problem is that they are so effective so armies do send every retard with a garden trowel to booby trap fields and now we have nightmares like Cambodia where the locals look like Gammatelier's wet dream. So my question is this: Why don't we have "perishable" landmines? Some sort of killswitch that either detonates or deactivates the charge after a set amount of time. Let's say 5 years. The switch could be based on an internal timer such as a digital clock, a radioisotope, a slow chemical reaction or even a physical process like a wind-up clock. Alternatively, it could be based on corrosion, such as by having an exposed rod of iron or a length of rope that will eventually rust/rot through and disarm the bomb. The latter system, of course, would be much less reliable and would not work in dry environments but it would be much easier to produce.

>>14422 In that case, is it already being used by anyone? And is it the kind of thing that you just shouldn't inhale if you don't want to die a few years sooner, or is it bad enough to be considered a nerve gas? Can it get into the water supply?
>>14695 It looks like certain varieties of the Hellfire missile do use it, but it's not used in infantry weapons. http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=7769 >SMAW-NE; PBXIH-135 (HMX, Al) >Composition PBXIH-135(or PBXN-113) >• 45% HMX https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMX >• 20% Binder Material(hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene binder) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxyl-terminated_polybutadiene >• 35% Aluminum I have no idea if you could use a solid block of this stuff as a hand grenade.

>>14665 It may seem like a stroke post but it's a real thing. Do a search for "Progressive Depth Rifling". >>14696 Not the same thing. >Infrared Spectra of Aluminum Fluorocarbon Polymer Compositions to Thermal Signature of Jet Engine And that's just one formulation. Mix some Tungsten in there and you've got a different beast. Change the ratio of Aluminium to PTFE and you've got another. Protip: It's used in WP smoke substitutes. And what do you know: >https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016703720305962 >Most of the World’s large tungsten deposits are genetically related to fluorine-rich granitic magmas, their ores contain fluorine minerals, such as fluorite and topaz, and their host rocks have commonly undergone fluorine metasomatism to form greisens.
>>14702 Huh, why does it seem that all the good things are buried beneath mediocre shit? I really want sniper rifles with progressive rifling now >>13230 good idea, but i think the solenoid should rather be a solenoid valve, that keeps a hole in the casing closed. After a certain time period has passed, or if the battery runs out of juice, the valve will open, and moisture can get into the mine, rendering the explosive effectively inert. just an idea.

One-Time Time Travel Strelok 11/12/2020 (Thu) 20:15:29 No.8925 [Reply]
If you were offered the chance to 'time travel' back to any date in 1938, anywhere in the world, where/when would you go? What would you do? Would you even accept the offer? You would be spending the rest of your life in that era nya~

>>8925 Somehow find a way to assassinate Tojo and the rest of his Toseiha Cronies, including the IJN leadership, that led us into war with the U.S. ; there was no way of "suing for peace" - if Hitler couldn't even get Churchill to sign a ceasefire, how would any Zipperhead retard ever hope to get two of the largest economies at that time?

>>8930 What would happen if you killed Abraham?
>>14690 Considering that the modern Kikes have literally no genetic relation to the Hebrews, all you'd be doing is changing the official name of the Kikes today - we'd probably still call them kikes because the word kikel didn't even exist in Ancient Hebrew - circle was 'krkl' (pronounced 'kirkle') - kikel was a Khazar thing.

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.

Since there's the dumb 9mm/45 discussion again I thought I'd suggest something totally new. Start with a bullpup AR, or AK pistol. Add a .30 caliber barrel with a custom chamber for something that looks like the 300 WSM but is only half as long; expecting about 1750fps pushing a 147gr boat tail out of a 7" barrel. Would this shut up the fudds arguing between their century-old calibers, do you suppose? Would YOU carry such a beast? >>12596 I've been dreaming of this in an AR-platform rifle for weeks now. Thanks, Strelok.
>>14492 I get ~1600fps out of a 6 1/2" barrel with a 230gr .45WM. Yes I like your autism and would carry as impractical as it may seem

Drone threa(t/d) Strelok 12/03/2020 (Thu) 08:52:13 No.10106 [Reply] [Last]
What are your thoughts about drones/UAVs in general, anon? They're becoming increasingly common nowadays, terrorists have even used Quadrocopter drones to remotely bomb targets. What could a potential insurgent/resistance fighter use them for? Do you have ideas on how to utilize them, as weapons, reconnaissance or delivery vehicles? Or something else entirely? I'm genuinely interested in knowing what an inventive fighter could use these for >Inb4 datamining thread
53 posts and 18 images omitted.
>>13837 they have to explode near the drones in order to be effective, so the propellant needs to be adjustable, or you need some kind of proximity-detonator on the fireworks. Other than that, yeah, probably.
I could write at length, but more than 4 years ago I predicted the rise of drones, it's happening much slower than I thought but it is happening
>>13898 You want to clear out drones? Well the good news is that drones are expensive; but they are rapidly falling in price. I really have been giving this some thought, because it's far more likely these drones will be used by police in wealthy countries or by occupying forces (Jews) than on the battlefield where their cost effectiveness is low. Strangely enough it's more akin to taking out tanks than anything else. >deny intelligence( COINTEL) >deny deployment >deny strategic position/area denial >deny targets >deny target acquisition >deny weapon systems >deny optics >deny mobility (so you can retreat/ regain position ) >deny coms (on the basis that it hinders re-deployment- but you probably die) Before you even think about anything really clever, consider the basics.
Have there been any advances in sentry guns as of late? They and UAVs should go hand in hand.
>>13826 >But if you go for an autocannon with guided shells that have proximity fuses, then you might as well leave the 20-25mm range and go bigger to improve the bang-to-buck ratio. Or maybe we can ignore that ratio in favour of a reasonably light and compact autocannon whose primary job is to remove drones with HE shells that have programmable fuses. You could still use it against ground targets if you want to, but that shouldn't be a priority. For this purpose something like this 27mm gun could work, or maybe a simpler design with a lower RoF that is chambered for the same cartridge. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauser_BK-27 http://navweaps.com/Weapons/WNGER_27mm-145_mlg27.php Speaking of that, it seems like the case is based on a soviet one: https://www.quarryhs.co.uk/MilRel.htm >The first two cartridges share 23x152B dimensions but are made of different materials and have other differences in primers and loadings. The first was used in the WW2 era VYa aircraft cannon mainly fitted to the II 2 Shturmovik ground attack plane ; these all had brass cases. In the 1950s the cartridge was worked on for the faster-firing ZU series of anti-aircraft guns, the case material being changed to steel. Four of the guns were used in the ZSU Shilka self-propelled AA system. Some towed and naval AA guns remain in service today, and a version is also used in light AFVs. However, brass-cased ammunition (like the one shown) remained in production for a long time, for use in sub-calibre tank gun training devices. >There is no claim of a direct relationship between these and the other two, but they are so similar in case design that it makes one wonder… >The 27x145B for the Mauser BK 27 revolver cannon was designed specifically for the Panavia Tornado strike fighter, although it is also used in Germany's version of the Alpha Jet, in the SAAB Gripen, and the Eurofighter Typhoon. A four-barrel naval CIWS mount (the Mauser Drakon) was developed but not used, but the MLG 27, a remote-control single-barrel mounting, has been adopted by the German navy, is attracting export sales, and is now being offered in a land mounting.
