whats best vehicle for SHTF? everyone says don't get a tank because they need so much fuel and you'll never need that much firepower, but how about an APC? should it be wheeled or tracked? or would you rather have a boat? and, if you can't get your vehicle of choice and have to make do with an ordinary car, what modifications should you make to it? what do you think, strelok?

>>19842 When I mean tip it over I mean the cause could be anything. Many boats have the center of gravity in such a way that once it is tipped over it is going down. and even those special ones where it is naturally want to stay upright is still going to get water where you don't want it to go.
>>19842 Depends on the specific area. On the pacific coast I don't think boats make much sense for SHTF. The rivers tend to be fast moving, with rapids, rocks and inevitably flush you out into the ocean, or perhaps one of the few lakes. Generally they'll move you toward the coastal population centers - opposite of what you want for SHTF. Plus the storms can be real nasty out on the coast. Fish is also not really a constant here either, outside the seasonal salmon runs there's not much unless it's a lake. However if the pros outweigh the cons for you go for it, good luck. you'll need it >Having to replace a tire on a truck or bike puts that mode of transportation ineffective for any long distance. Truck yes true, bike no. Inner tubes can be repaired easily and you can carry replacements they are light and compact. Bikes are super easy to maintain, minimal tools are needed, literally kids are capable of basic maintenance. >Trying to run and hide or sneak past government navys is a big problem I wouldn't have an answer to.

Designs that never became the Type 64. Few years after the foundation of the National Police Reserves (later SDF), the upper echelons decided it was time to ditch big American semi-autos and the unreliable (as in literally 0 of the tested rifles passed inspection) pre-mid war Japanese rifles converted to .30 cal with domestically developed weapons. To do this, they got a number of teams within and outside of the NPR/SDF and Howa, calling on former IJA/IJN weapons designers and arsenal heads, especially those who were involved in the development of the Type 4/5 "Japanese Garand" and the Japanese Pedersen. The new rifle was to be light, accurate in full auto, and have a rather low rate of fire of around 400 rounds per minute. Much of the information is based on websites covering Tsunose Mitsuo's book "The Dream Automatic Rifle ~ Everything Surrounding the Type 64 (幻の自動小銃~64式のすべて)", Arms Magazine articles, but should be taken with some grain of salt as I've not had access to these publications yet and I'm not the best when it comes to translating. From top to bottom for pic 1: 1958 R1 (Rifle 1 Type) - Gas piston operated with CETME inspired trigger mechanism, designed by Tsunose Mitsuo of the Defence Agency TRDI who had formerly wroked in the IJA Technology HQ (陸軍技術本部?) 1958 R2 (Rifle 2 Type) - Delayed Blowback (system of cams and a cylindrical bolts according to texts) designed by Iwashita Kenzo consul for Howa, who was formerly involved in the development of the Type 99 and Japanese Pedersen copy. Apparently wanted to use the toggle delay mechanism in the R2 but too complex and bulky and was scrapped. 1959 R3 (Rifle 3 Type) - Direct Impingement operated, designed by Howa weapon designer Shizuno Katei. It broke after a few test rounds due to high RoF. skip R4 (contested - 4 can be read as SHI which is the same way death is read and thus avoided, others say it was an M2 carbine with a fire rate reduction mod) and the R5 (R3 with a gas piston to improve reliability and reduce RoF, blueprint only) By 1960, politicians and brass in the Defence Agency started to seriously consider adopting the M14 and there were plans for 50,000 rifles to be purchased in the Second Defence build up budget which would start in 1961. To prevent this, the R6 was developed from the already developed Type 60 12.7mm spotting rifle, and was reduced in calibre and given rate reducer mechanism that the developer claims is seen in the SKS and FN type rifles. At the same time, Tsunose was ordered to leave the Defence Agency and work in Howa, which gave him much better access. The R6 types would go on to be refined, simplified by all the actors involved in the R project and then some (e.g. the K designation in one of the last models of the R6, the R6K, was taken from Iwashita Kenzo who developed a simplified rate reducer that solved reliability issues with previous R6 prototypes). By 1963, the final R6 model (R6E2 Kai) would be sufficient and the budget set aside for the 50,000 M14s were used to purchase the R6EKai, which would be designated the Type 64.

anyone buy kevlar sleeves? I was looking at https://www.superiorglove.com/en/arm-protection/kevlar-protective-sleeves and am not sure what would be a good investment. Other site selling vests only sold gloves which doesn't seem like enough. Also any advice for how to plan to don this stuff rapidly in a safe area in emergencies? Like if there was home invasion with knives? Also wondering if there are any sleeves with NIJIII ratings against bullets since vests only cover torso. I've also read that material in bulletproof vests break down after two years, is that how often you need to buy them? Seems very expensive, wondering if some brands last longer than others.

>>14995 >On another note, what about pneumatic guns? ... They trialled some in about 1800 with the Girandoni air rifles, so called Windbuechsen back then. You may have heard of them. One problem was reservoirs needed to be refilled in the field, either exchange empty for filled (like with mags), or send someone refilling behind the line of fire. You have no time to pump 'em up right there and then. They made handcranked compressors on carts to refill a handfull tanks at once iirc. The empties are brought back, full ones given to the troopers. The tanks need to fit well for this to work, like magazines one could use on another, similar gun. You cannot have tanks to yourself/for your gun only. Imagine the nightmare. Tanks could start leaking, which will render them unusable till you can fix them. Somewhere to the back. Also the rifles were manufactured, literally handmade. Lots of handfitting, something we can do smarter now I say. And they were finnicky in general, not very robust. Could be solved today (also if SHTF). We have advanced from 1800s to nowadays, and I believe we could overcome some of the challenges. You need e.g. to compensate for power decline as the air reservoir is emptied. To be able to hit targets until you run out of air, or bullets, which comes first. The tank needs being protected, so fit into the rifle, the best way. Exchangable buttstocks. Also a rugged simple twist-lock mechanism, lugs like how you mount bayonets. So yeah, is a thing, can be done, but as a first choice I'd rather prefer other proven solutions tbh. Range was over 100 metres/110 yards, and they didn't use true pointed projectiles, only the literal bullets or 'musket balls', not even Minié types. Reminder, 1800. When Napoléon ran out of chewing gum. So there is wiggle room for improvement too. Perhaps up to 150 metres/165 yards, seems feasable. Similar to shotgun (with slug, rifled barrel, in it's role as a musket - how ironic). But definitely more silent I think. Should be a plus, shouldn't it? https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=NPHPYN0NPGE (vid related is review of 'portable' compressors, the smallest is still huge as fuck.) To me it boils down to is it uncomplicated/reliable to use? Similar to the question of battery driven car versus fuel driven car. We got used to liquid fuels, they are great to store for a while, easy to transport, and it just takes minutes to refill even a big car tank. Who wants to literally stand by, waiting for half an hour and more to charge a car battery? Even if you only had to do it every few hundred kilometres/miles? Me not. Is why alcohol and fuel cell is the right thing imho. >Fill tank, produce electricity on the way, use for traction motor(s) and whatnot. Do not get me wrong pls: For fixed routes, battery-electric cars/busses/trucks and water/air/railway vehicles are alright. Like it's done with public transport of goods and passengers. They did use some in the past (e.g. German battery-electric railcar, the Wittfeld-Akkumulatortriebwagen of 1907, in service for half a century(!)), and are using boats reliably for a time now, too (a modern one is the MV Ampere catamaran ferry in Norway, since 2014 afaik). >Charge, takes a time, but you do it once a day. >Then you run the vehicle all day long. >During evening/in the morning charge again.

>>14995 >It can be ignited, but you would need to provide temperatures of about 500 degrees Celsius to ignite it That problem has already been solved by Daisy back in the day. They claim a temp of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit or 1093 degrees Celsius for their firing mechanism. The projectiles use a block of smokeless powder with a claimed velocity of 1150 fps for what is likely a 25 to 30 grain projectile. It would take some doing getting the air to compress and heat properly as it uses a unique obturator to do so, but not impossible to do and a patent may exist removing that work.

A thread where we can sperg out share our thoughts about everything that goes into an industrialized war.

Here is a random link from an academic that goes into logistics, very interesting site: https://www.hgwdavie.com/blog/2017/5/25/the-tempo-of-operations-in-the-railway-age Anyone have anything relating to the foraging operations in preindustrial armies? I am not sure how it works, most accounts I have found are vague in antidotal stories and general concepts.
>>19703 "Caesar's Legion: The Epic Saga of Julius Caesar's Elite Tenth Legion and the Armies of Rome" describes a harvesting operation of a Roman legion in Gaul that ends up going very wrong. In short, stores in a marching fort that's been occupied for longer than planned are running low and it's harvest time, so the commander (a legate, IIRC) sends out a unit of men (I think it was two centuries, but it could've been a cohort as well). They get a couple empty carts and sickles, but march out in full equipment since the enemy might ambush them. When harvesting, a platoon of men would stand watch with weapons, while the others grabbed the harvesting equipment and cut grain stalks and throw them on the cart (bundling them together too, I think). They then end up getting ambushed by cavalry, retreat with the full cart towards the fort, but end up forming up on a hill near the fort, where they get cut down to a man.
>>19703 >foraging in pre-industrial armies. A few of the older Chinese works go in to great detail since it was considered a key component. But they are in old Chinese. I'll give you an example. There is the "tuntian" system historically before the middle ages where soldiers would train in the winter, but work in the harvest and sowing in an area. These "Soldiers" (I believe the proper term nowdays would be auxilaries or reservists) would be called up as needed when conflict arose. There's a lot discuss about bluffing the enemy. One famous instance is where a general was matched up against someone who was very cautious (think Montgomery), so he got soldiers to build straw soldiers with weapons, got the drummers to drum louder than usual, lit up more bonfires. He then took the majority of his force to steal what would be the enemies harvest dressed in plain clothes during the night.
>>19658 https://archive.vn/Z8JYv It would seem Europe's plan is to act as a middle-man and either directly sell gas or supply gas to Ukraine via Slovakia instead of helping them to transition to an agricultural/industrial economy. More importantly based on what I'm reading, the Germans and French are planning long-term to siphon any talent left in the Ukraine off to other Western countries via educational/business programs, exacerbating the situation further. At this point I suspect the EU wants Russia to go to war with Ukraine in order to absolve themselves of their responsibility to try and help fix the Ukraine problem, but they can't say it outright else Ukraine might try fleeing to nearby states instead of only letting their talented slip through the cracks into EU clutches.

>>11625 >have some friends I wanted to take with me as well >I would like the food to be fairly soft, if possible Now here is the thing. There is a reason imho, why most prepared meals are either powdered, ground, or dried somehow. Soft condition often means not a great shelf life, unless it's a fluid to begin with. Maybe when stuff is frozen stiff, but that is another thing. At least that's how I get it. This is why you can get milk powder, or some syrups you need to mix with water. Also why ppl usually recommend solid fats over oils. What you can do is soak whatever you take with you, and/or cook it. So extra water, will do magic. If you can prepare a rich soup or stew this would be best I guess. Does not take long either. You could use canned food as a base (veggies like beans a.o.), add cut stuff from packs for taste (e.g. dry sausage, meat, spices), let it soak well and soften. Something warm gives a good feel in your tummy. Stove, pot, water, heat tablets (as fire starters) take up space, keep that in mind, but you can use the pot as container, an advantage I guess. If you are a group everyone can pack a bit more, too. And it should come way cheaper than buying fancy processed foods. I consider such emergency foods, rather for when you really have the need. For onnaway rations when you cannot/don't wanna stop, crackers and muesli/candy bars is good to give an energy boost. Even without decent dentures your rascals should be able to munch them. Just don't get extra hard to bite ones, e.g. with whole nuts. They can keep them packed, break pieces off and just suck. When dissolved in the mouth, swallow. Is how I do it too.

>>19758 >TRS x8 stinger throwing knife, do not have a sheath or holster, don't know where to find one able to be attached to molle gear. If you get a sheath, glue/sew/stud molle patch to one side? I would try fix it in two ways (for fail safety). If you get none try make one: Solid thick plastic, cut out two-sided sheath form (leave some room for tip and blade, tighter at the opening/handle end). Press to bend down (like in a vice), glue/melt ends together (plastic should melt). Sew sheath all around so it will hold together, should work imho. Maybe reinforce opening end with an extra layer of material all around. Making your own it will be easier to add a hook, molle patch, what you want to it. You can use other material (leather, rugged cloth), glue sheet metal (brass lining) to inside, to not cut the sheath too much from inside when sliding the knife in and out.

The pleasure of being **hand**loaded inside Strelok 12/21/2020 (Mon) 21:59:10 No.11298 [Reply] [Last]
I don't see a reloading/handloading thread, so it's my turn to make it. Post your hot loads. I've started reloading shotshells, but I'm looking to get into slugs as well I have a rifled barrel for my shotgun, so I'm torn between trying to buy a slug mould that makes calibre slugs, and just dealing with any leading, or taking the more traditional route of sub-calbre slugs and a shot cup. Currently I'm leaning towards going with a .678 ball mould since it's a lot cheaper than the only moulds I can find for calibre slugs ($70 vs $160). Also the .678 ball works out to be just a bit over an ounce, probably closer to an ounce if I'm not using perfectly pure lead. That plus a standard shot cup wad makes finding reloading data easier, as well as saving money on the lead. Is it just me or is the Lyman reloading data very sparse for anything other than light trap loads? Obviously their slug data is only for the 2 types of slug they have moulds for, not surprising. This is making me somewhat cautious of buying the calibre mould since it makes a slug that's heaver than they Lyman foster slugs. Even outside of slugs, once you get into heavier/higher velocity loads there's just a smattering of random recipes. This is a large part of what's driving me towards the ball mould since I can skip the slug section that has very little data and just use 1oz shot load data. I pity the poor guy with a .410 that just wants to load some slugs, they don't even bother offering a section for .410 Anyone have experience with slug making or handloading in general?

Quite some time ago now, when buying reloading supplies I jumped on some sale-priced hard cast 147gr pistol projectiles. As they were intended for the .38 special, they're .358 across. I'm shooting a .357 sig, which is, like the 9mm, .355 across. I could buy a swaging tool to shave the three one-thousandths off, but that would be twenty five dollars, and I only bought a couple hundred bullets, and I only really did that because they were six cents each. Buying the swager pushes them to over three times that, and I'm not all that sure I'll find a sale like that again. How comfortable, in general, are you streloks about using the 6" barrel to swage the three one-thousands off?
>>15141 >arisakas tend to have feed problems with anything that isn't their original clambering. >The top rifle is of the most common type, converted as part of a fairly organized effort. The bottom one is much more like a field conversion. The major element in both conversions was replacement of the original barrel with an SKS barrel, but clearly done in different ways. The more official guns had the triangular Arisaka front sights put back on the new barrels, while the more unique gun used the SKS barrel complete with bayonet, front stock cap, and bayonet. >The other major element of a caliber conversion like this is the magazine, and there were several techniques for doing this. Some rifles simply had no changed made to the magazine. Some, including our top one, used a sheet metal stop and notched follower to hold the 7.62 rounds in the rear of the magazine. Others, including our bottom one, used a shortened follower and block in the back of the magazine to hold the rounds to the front. >The bolts and extractors were not modified as part of these conversions, and they work pretty well with the 7.62 cartridge. I spent some time at the range with the top rifle, and it never failed to extract. It would occasionally fail to feed or drop an empty case before reaching the ejector if I did not operate the bolt smoothly. Interestingly, no effort appears to have been made to regulate the sights for the conversion, as the rifle I was shooting was about 3 inches high at 25 yards and a good 2 feet high at 200 yards (at the lowest sight setting).

For, 5 - 6 days now, tensions have been brewing in AP Kosovo and Methoija. A protest, and blockade of the Jarinje administrative check-point, was commenced by the Serbian population, which, has by now been reduced to a insignificant number. This was done in their retaliation, of the local "authority" attempting to seize Serbian license plates. The "Police" forces, of the "Kosovo (Banana) Republic", have sent their "Special Operators" to quell this protest, resulting in a blockade of the blockees, and phsyical confrontation. Following this, the Serbian government kept on it's years long stance of eating shit, doing absolutely nothing of note, and rattling sabres, with deployments of armor, and shows of force by the airforce. Currently, the situation is tense. But, in my seen it all before view, I can safley assume nothing will happen from this. In the end, both of our "governments", are put in place by the same international cabal of pedophiles and assorted deviants. Video and pics incoming.

Feel free to google translate this article of CNN lackey's N1. https://rs.n1info.com/vesti/sveclja-zapaljen-centar-za-registraciju-u-zvecanu-napad-eksplozivnom-napravom/ Shqiptar's claim Serbs set fire to the local DMV. And to have found explosives in Serbian communities. Smells of flase flags. We are sadly, not as proactive as muslims in terms of bombing.
Some footage of todays deployment of the Serbian army, two kilometers from the Jarinje administrative line.

Well it's probably not going to degrade into shooting conflict. But then again it's the balkans.

Mobility in modular plate carrier systems Strelok 09/16/2021 (Thu) 22:50:06 No.19218 [Reply]
Does anyone have personal experience with modular systems that accept groin protection, and arm/shoulder plates? What is the impact you suffer to mobility? Are you capable of performing a full sprint at a decent speed? Bounding maneuvers, etcetera? How is prolonged movement done at a walking pace? Thank you in advance.

>>19239 i shit in your mouth
>>19239 Not every thread has to go in a general. Generals kill imageboards.
>>19218 Arm and shoulder plates turn an already heavy and bulky piece of equipment into a knee destroying monstrosity. It's already a pain in the ass as-is getting a good cheek weld with a plate carrier- adding even more bulk is going to fuck with your marksmanship. Most of your questions are more relevant to personal fitness than your choice of armor. Just assume armor in any form turns mundane tasks strenuous, and strenuous tasks exhausting.
>>19218 The interceptor vest with the neck yoke and nut flap was hot and heavy but not that bad. I liked the all around impact protection compared to a plate carrier, even without the extra plates and panels. You could take a beating and not even notice. Even so, no one attached the extra parts in a training environment unless specifically told to. The neck bits were really good at catching hot brass too.
