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.

I have some questions for operators which I am struggling with. When you are on patrol in areas with a large temperature swing (-2 to 20) how to you deal with undershirts? If I wear my thermals at night when the morning comes I'm fucking baking and I can't remove them- if I don't I've only got my field jacket all night. How do you manage clammy feet if you cant remove your boots? I've tried commercial powders, wood ash calcifying, acidifying, every type of sock. After two days bacteria grow and blistering starts, by four days i'v got surface infections- last time i did a week my feet swelled up so badly i needed a medic and it was fucking embarrassing. how do you put on a poncho quietly? how do you vent heat if you're wearing a carrier and rig? things learned: use a dirty undershirt to absorb sweat between you back and pack if you dont have an air gap, use an undershirt taliban style to keep bugs off your face when sleeping- just pull the eye slots up/down, in a sandstorm breath through you nose or ideally if covered through your mouth and use your tongue to only inhale through the top of your mouth
>>1757 I just wear wool, it stays warm even if it gets wet. Wicks sweat alright. >poncho Obtain one that isn't plastic, I have one of those Luhkas from the vtower and its fairly silent when throwing over the usual load. >boot problem Its how you're wearing your socks, If its possible wool and have the sock sitting above where you tie your boot. If done right it does draw out the sweat. Plan accordingly because you should be stopping and letting things air out. >carrier I'm a Y-Strap guy, but the times I have worn a carrier its been a lightweight one.
>hired as extra for tv show, have to wear camo don't ask, it never got finished >literally every crew member makes the 'woah I can't see your body!' joke Almost not worth the money.
>>1879 How much money do you get being an extra.
>>1894 $US 130 per day x 2 days. It's a nice bit of beer money on boring weekends but there is lots of waiting involved, hence the pay rate often in days.

>>1754 >stay concealed and in cover That's the prime truth, but the problem is when the patrols came around to loot and you were inside a house; Jihadis, both foreign and bosniaks, and albanians were particularly famous for duct taping people concealed and in cover. And then you have the whole Croat vs. Serb village parties when they searched for opponents or previously outspoken citizens. >waiting for the opportunity to retreat. But all gets invalidated by this, that's the prime act to follow. And very well mentioned, a good house foundation is mandatory, or at least a cheap basement hole that will not get buried.
>>1773 So generally you will have waves as a war progresses. First you get troops moving through on their way to the front Then you have looting parties as supplies dwindle Then you have the retreating side trying to hide among the civilian population Then you have massacres against civilian populations who are perceived to be partisan. Rape is initially only carried out by enemy forces who aren't engaged in anything more urgent or serious, but quickly foreign fighters, boredom and social isolation will see both sides committing mass rapes and abductions. I have seen villages that were destroyed 20 times over the course of a war to deny insurgents supplies. Some general advice: Identify and clear out of places that troops are likely to occupy, especially as artillery positions. Don't be in proximity to troop corridors like highways or mountain trails, as these tend to suffer repeated looting and random acts of violence by twitchy soldiers. Use shitty cover to conceal serious fortifications, if you sandbag window frames then throw a chair in front of the sandbags- by concealing your defenses people are more likely to target strong points and less likely to decide your house is a good defensive position. a hedge conceals a earth berm, a plaster wall conceals a brick wall. You might be surprised how many bullets someone will fire at something that looks like it's being damaged. Expect reprisals against anyone armed you deny food, shelter or medical aid to. To avoid being robbed I would make as though I had already been robbed- walk with plastic bags over your shoes because partisans always steal fucking shoes, bruise your cheek and rip the front pockets of your pants- hopefully they will be angry at the last guy who robbed you and not at your for already having been robbed.

>>1444 The thing about torrenting is if you don't use a VPN it's extremely easy to tell exactly who's downloading exactly what. Try https://iknowwhatyoudownload.com/en/peer/ for example. Using a VPN through a proper protocol tends to solve both issues. >>1496 This type of tracking doesn't even rely on ISPs cooperating. It's inherent to the P2P nature of the system.
If you live in an American cardboard house I would consider A. remove floorboards and dig down to create a shelter/ storage space/septic pit, make a trapdoor if possible. If you have to break through a slab use wood from a wall to brace the hole, smash the cement you removed and re-set it over the brace to form a trapdoor B. use the earth in plastic bags, put them in curtains to create long sandbags you can lay inside the house C. if your house is on stilts dig a trench from your hole to the perimeter for escape and build an earth berm to seal the edges of the house. D. fire-proof the house by removing useless junk to a pile somewhere, remove internal plaster so you can stop the outside of your house burning from inside, drill out to your drainpipes to divert water inside the house you can drink or fight fires with E. carpets are amazing because if you soak them in something that will harden or just cover them with dirt they provide excellent protection, you might use one to make a roof over your hole- a good source of material is plaster cornice. F. bathtubs can be put in roof spaces as water tanks and to help fight fires in the roof space, you might also want to spray something fire retardant around up there or even remove the ceiling plaster- fires start on the walls and move up to the roof. G. garden hose is great also because you can use it to drag supplies to/from neighboring structures, to provide water, for firefighting etc. take it inside and keep it intact. You are also likely to need it during tunneling H. your front door is a natural killzone, instead of fortifying it block up the doorways leading out of the hall and sandbag a pill box behind it- you want people to break in and end up stuck in a hallway with a pillbox at one end I. roof tiles create tons of shrapnel- however they work great to pave trenches cut into the ground and stop flooding, and if buried in medium/large earth berms effectively stop penetration. You have tone of them and if you remove a section of roof it's better to remove the top because it carries less water and plastic can be secured with the line of tiles on the ridges. If anything above two meters looks like an elevated fire position (because you removed low roof tiles or actually tried to build one) you are begging for snipers to move in and/or artillery to directly hit your house. J. destroying roads is very unwise, troops will dismount and clear houses expecting an ambush and likely kill anyone they suspect destroyed the road- if you try to tunnel under a road overweight trucks and armored vehicles are likely to collapse it- again the troops will suspect a IED or ambush and will just shoot at everything nearby
Some thoughts on tunneling Tunneling into colditz is a great book on this, and there are a lot of notes on narco tunnels in mexico, Afghanistan and vietnam. Illegal/wildcat mining also can teach you a lot, this is done in Africa, south east Asia Design: If you are tunneling it's safer to dig deeper and have the tunnel run uphill, simply use set lengths of string hanging from the roof to maintain direction/angle- better still a lazer. you need two kinds of support for a roof, one for weight and one to stop erosion- bed slats and floor boards are the gold standard, line them with plastic. cupboard doors, large kitchen tiles and the insulation from your roof can all be put behind supports to hold back more earth. try to make an arch shape as you dig through clay, but straight walls and complete boarding may be required in soft soil. If you make an exit ensure there is a large bend- ideally vertically. This stops blasts being channeled down the tunnel and allows the entrance/exit to be collapsed or defended. Something to consider is changing the angle of the tunnel entirely at the point of exit to mislead anyone who finds is as to where it originated- if it's in a straight line to your house it's likely troops will just guess where you are. Of course the best option is simply not to dig an exit, just close to the surface where you can break through later- although time is a key consideration. If you dig a side/branch for storing things you can collapse/dig it out again as required- cacheing things underground is enormously difficult and an artform in itself- the US army has some decent guides and you will quickly realize there are all kinds of unexpected issues. How to dig: Find a digging tool and some way to cart earth. Hammers and axes make good picks, plant pots make good buckets but so do lamp shades and the shells of electrical appliances. To remove earth use a bucket on a rope, rope can be made from twisting strips of bed sheets. Metal edging/guttering is invaluable to make a chute your bucket can travel down. You can use a hose to wet the face you are digging through but be very aware water invites collapse. Clay is a total motherfucker to dig through, I had to dig through several meters in a crawlspace and I pulled half the muscles in my body- the clayline is also where water flows underground and if you make a hole in the clay expect your tunnel to become an aquifer- to avoid this you can take the clay and actually line the outside of the tunnel in the meters preceding the clayline so water flows around your tunnel- it also means you can dig some more nice soft earth and avoid carting the clay to the end of the tunnel- but definitely line the shaft with clay because otherwise it will become a well. Where to put the removed earth:

>>1135 >board Now that sounds scary. On the other hand, it would be hard to find something on an enemy super-battleship that doesn't belong to the enemy, so it might be actually perfect for autonomous robots guided by a simple ˝AI˝ that just shoot at literally anything that moves. On the other hand, I can't even possibly fathom how hard it would be to actually take over one that was designed not to be taken over in a boarding action. >They are one ship and can only exert influence on one area. That assumes you are playing catch in all seven seas of the world. But it wouldn't be hard to e.g. patrol the North Sea with one, the Bay of Biscay with a second one, and the Levant with a third one. Now you could try to sneak around them with a few ships, but I doubt that sending a Reforger convoy straight to the shores of Europe is a good idea in this case.
And it hit me after posting: what about attacking the weapons and propulsion system? Welding the barrels shut would make the main guns useless, and I don't know if such a battleship would have propellers, waterjets, or something out of this comic, but I imagine it would be easier to just take out those. Then ˝just˝ tow the enemy ship into a friendly port and wait a few decades for the crew to starve to death or give up.
>>1197 >Welding the barrels shut >tfw future ship to ship sea battles will be conducted between robo-paratroopers trying to disable deck armaments to force capital ships back into harbor and T-doll crews defending their boat Though shouldn't future BBBs with enough armor to make at-sea destruction by another BBB unfeasible still be vulnerable to giant anti-capital fuck you coastal rail/coilgun installations?

The bread for all topics revolving around /k/ooking. How does your canteen kit look like Streloks? Whats your favorite recipe for cooking innawoods? What foods are your storing for SHTF Happenings? Do you make them yourself or do you just buy MREs? What are the most healthy nutritious /fit/ foods for long term storage? Are you a Strelok who hunts to get his meat? What tips can you give Strelok new to it? Also to the Strelok giving me the tip to use baking soda while cooking my dried white beans that didn't want to go soft. It worked halfway, they are still somewhat corny but they are edible now. However the baking soda caused a lot of foam during cooking, so I don't know if that is worth the effort.

>>805 What's the ATF stance on coilguns?
>>811 Ironically, they consider coilguns, railguns, and Gauss-cannons to be forms of 'cannon' and therefore while technically 'firearms' for the purpose of law (ergo where you may or may not have it and if you commit a crime using it they're adding firearm related charges), they're unregulated. Only semi-related tangent, but for further odd loopholes in the same vein, as long as the projectile and the powder charge are separate (and the gun us not designed to take fixed ammunition), the gun is not a restricted item no matter how large the bore is. Even if the loading and firing cycle is fully automatic. NTW20 20mm Rifle? Destructive device, illegal! T15E2 90mm Gun from the Super-Pershing? Legal (on your own property)! 5"/62 Mark 45 Mod 4 (fully automatic) Naval Gun? Perfectly Legal! M198 155mm Howitzer? Actually Legal. 16in/50cal Mk7 Naval Gun? Yep, still legal. Even the shells are.

I can heartily recommend Armored Brigade. It's fairly fun once you get used to the pathfinding/AI logic. It's fairly similar to Close Combat, except that it's in bigger scale and set in cold war.
