what's a war board without a conflict?

Weapon prototypes Strelok 11/07/2020 (Sat) 15:47:30 No.8584 [Reply]
I have a big loss of a prototype thread Talk about any firearm prototype from the long forgotten past to the semi-modern **early 2000s, because there is already a dedicaded thread about adoptions. Here I'll present you "7,92mm Light Automatic Machine Gun T44" >A franken version of Mg42 and Fg42 which preceded M60. Yes it's American Also why wasn't XM8 adopted? Also also Krása

it's a meme gun at this point but holy fuck I would've loved to have one of these. shame they were jewed by the DoD because of contract obligations and weren't allowed to sell to other potential buyers until the gubmint were done with them >Unique to the Jackhammer was the ability to convert a loaded cylinder from the weapon into an anti-personnel device similar to a land mine by the addition of a firing mechanism. The cylinder would be loaded with up to ten 12-gauge shells and the firing mechanism fitted over the bottom section of the cylinder. A pressure plate or plunger can then set to mechanically fire the shells in the cylinder upon pressing or initiate a spring-loaded timer which can be set to trigger firing up to twelve hours later, in one hour intervals. As the cylinder is designed to contain the pressure of firing normally, it can be discharged and reused when used in Bear Trap configuration.

The XM8 failed because engineers tuned it to their needs instead of the soldier's according to Strelok 5 years ago in another thread. Since there's a war in Armenia I'll bring up again this prototype rifle they made. Any post-Soviet country that attempts to implement a new rifle fails because AK is fine and they made so many no one will buy them. >>8595 >meme gun So what.
>>8607 >Vahan This looks awesome, why is the fuck is not at the very least a civilian rifle?
XM8 is peak 2000s
>>8584 >why wasn't XM8 adopted? https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=8z1wSamsXLs https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=Te2IqFbRR7A https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=cNB_2hih31I tl;dr is that there wasn't an actual program with a lot of contestants to replace the M16 and M4, and HK didn't bribe enough senators and congressmen for them to just let it fly. We can of course argue if there was even a need for this weapon to begin with, but overall it seems like this would have been an improvement.

Radio and Communication Thread. Strelok 07/12/2020 (Sun) 23:56:42 No.4110 [Reply]
Hello I getting a 5 pack of BaoFeng UV-5R Radios plus some longer antennas for some frens and I. Radios and communications are one of the most important things but I am a complete retard with them. How do I program them? Are some better brands/models? What are good COMSEC rules and practices? Dump what every you have.

Will the ammo scare get as bad as it did in 2013?
8 posts and 2 images omitted.
It sucks as I couldn't buy ammo until recently. My previously anti-funs family just recently let me buy guns because they realized how fucked the world was. I have like 500 rounds of .223 so I don't feel absolutely fucked, but I do wish I had more. I will buy more when the prices hopefully go back to normal, but I don't think thats gonna be anytime soon.
>>7769 Well at least you got your family to stop being retarded in regards to guns in the process. Having a support network in uncertain times is as important as being armed.
>>7777 Fucking quads checked. But anyways yeah, a year or two ago I was bitching about BLM and more stuff to my parents and they basically told me that I need to be fair or treat people with respect. After the George Floyd killing my dad went in my room and asked me for advice for his first pistol. It feels good because now there is two guns in my room when last year there was 0.
>>7779 If gun shows are being allowed to operate in your area I'd suggest hitting one up as early as possible to spot some relatively sanely priced ammo. I always look for the people who set up at the back wall first because there's always one or two vendors that are selling old military surplus guns from before everything was standardized into 9mm/5.56/7.62 NATO etc. but they always have decent stock of more common modern rounds that they keep hidden under their tables for some reason and they're usually much cheaper than every other table when it comes to buying individual boxes instead of bulk I genuinely don't now why some of them do this, it's been going on since way before this panic buying and none of the actual firearms they sell ever uses shit like 9mm so why stock it and why keep it hidden?. Obviously I look to see if anyone is selling bulk first, but since that's pretty rare right now it's best to hunt down the guy who is selling boxes of 50 rounds for ten dollars cheaper than everyone else. Fuck this post is a mess but I'm tired as shit and not fixing it so deal with it.
>>7781 And by early as possible I mean get to the door like an hour and a half ahead of opening time at least so you can bust in like a nigger charging into walmart on black friday and be the first to spot any bulk stuff assuming there's any left.

WAR IN THE CAUCUS REGION Strelok 09/27/2020 (Sun) 19:42:40 No.6332 [Reply] [Last]
i'm curious to see how other streloks think this'll turn out. how many troops are each side likely able to mobilize and what are their overall capabilities? is there any information on what their training looks like? https://archive.is/E9VaA >Turkey Criticises Armenia After Clashes With Azerbaijan, Supports Baku https://archive.is/J4u9H >UPDATE 5-At least 16 dead in clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan https://archive.is/DvN1b >Armenia-Azerbaijan clashes kill at least 16, undermine regional stability

Have the Azerbaijanis been more successful in southern arstakh, or are they going to get hit hard from another strategic retreat from the Armenians in the near future? If the updated kikepedia image >>7287 posted is accurate?
>>7755 from the 17th to the 19th the azeris took a fair bit of land. im not gonna say they have any chance of winning but if they arent retarded they may be able to maintain it
New thread?

>>7452 Absolutely retarded. Rules of war were put in place because if you fight against a civilized enemy, you want make sure you can have peace afterwards. Not every war is war of complete annihilation. By limiting the horrors inflicted on both sides, you try not to destroy any diplomatic basis for peace deals. If you go for total extermination, you don't need rules of war because there will be no one left to complain.

Gun Ranges Strelok 10/16/2020 (Fri) 16:08:35 No.7513 [Reply]
Do you go to any ranges, or do you know any open land areas where you can do whatever you want? Is it a fun range where they let you do what you want or is it rulecucked like webm related? Any stories? I keep trying to find a range around here but the only free ones are only for pistols, and the only "real" range in the area is invite only. Do I have no other choice but to drive three hours out to the sticks to find a good one?
>>7513 Have you tried shooting in the forest yet?
>>7513 Look up BLM land in your area. No one here knows where you are.
>>7529 Yeah man the US is fucking huge and different states have different regulations for such things and different counties in those different states have even further regulations in some cases, there's no way to answer you more accurately beyond "find a place out in the middle of nowhere and have fun" without knowing where you live.

>>7331 It had significant industrial capacity and after Munich and it didn't seem likely that it would put up much resistance, which are important factors. I don't think that was the reason though. From what I gathered, the government was still anti-reich, in some sense. Yes, it made many "friendly" moves, but more out of necessity than out of enthusiasm. They didn't really want to end the treaties with western allies and tried to declare neutrality for example. I guess you could say it was an ego thing, or something like that.
This is only tangentially related but what would have happened if America would have invaded the Soviet Union immediately after the end of the war like Patton wanted to do?
>>7373 I have no doubt the west would win eventually, but it would probably make the first invasion look like a joke, though it is also true that the soviets had manpower shortages towards the end of the war so maybe they would have given up sooner than expected. Germany would become a moonscape that's for sure.
>>7373 The USSR was by that point so heavily reliant on the USA for logistics that eventually they'd probably collapse in a war of attrition. However the allied ground forces in Europe would initially be horribly savaged and probably most other nations that weren't the UK would just stay out of it.

Massive Explosion in Beirut Strelok 08/04/2020 (Tue) 18:20:31 No.4686 [Reply] [Last]
Mainstream is claiming its likely a fireworks factory explosion but I'm not buying it, what kind of firepower do you need to pull this off?

Didn't they also just find an entirely different unsecured cache of ammonium fertilizer at that same port just a week or two ago?
>>5677 This is probably from the fire reported in the offtopic thread. IIRC there was something weird about the circumstances that suggested it was an old politician trying to hide evidence or a young politician trying to make a profit. The fire was caused in a duty-free warehouse meaning one that's already had taxes paid on it.
They say an arms depot exploded in Lebanon. At this point i believe 100% it was the jews screwing around with all these places, but i don't know why unless there was a massive thing being planned and they sniffed it out.
>>6085 Also never forget middle eastern incompetence. But I do also agree that it's probably just jews fucking with these countries either for the fun of it or some plan that we aren't even aware of.

NRA is going down Strelok 08/06/2020 (Thu) 16:55:42 No.4759 [Reply]
New York is finally going after the NRA for its blatant, public, mismanagement. Everything that happens to them is entirely their own fault since they could have moved the charter to virtually any other state years ago. http://archive.vn/wip/WcqpA http://archive.vn/wip/mgXGV Can't wait for all the money they're embezzling to start flowing to real 2A groups.

>>4845 I have never been sodomized by a garden gnome before but I can't think of a better description for the feeling I have after watching television. It isn't pleasant for anyone and is so absurd just wondering "Why?" doesn't cut it anymore. I know Elvis supposedly shot TVs but how rich would you have to be to summarily execute any TV that has the audacity to be on in your presence and get away with it?
>>4854 Pretty much. A war distracts the population from internal problems too.
Open file (11.97 KB 310x163 Wilson.jpg)
>>4861 The wars also result from the policies to pacify the population. In order to obtain the resources to satisfy the plebs at the lowest expense military image is used to extort them from abroad. This leads to foreign discontent and rebellion, which the plebs are then called to put down with the promise they will be rewarded with the spoils. They get shilled that it will be easy due to their superiority in material but also contradictingly that it is a dire threat to the national body. Neither is true but both are necessary to defend the lies of the political court. Army gets mauled, war costs more than anyone planned, soldiers get nothing in the end because the top gets paid first. There is no reckoning of leadership and no accounting of grievances; the objective was to conserve the decay for another generation.
>>4853 TBH the biggest hurdle to any sort of entrenched tyranny is true "education". I'm not talking the current tier bs they pull, I'm talking someone who has been very well versed in history (to see the mistakes of the past), logic (to deduce the fallacies they use), and rhetoric (because muh ad hominem). It's scarry how we are mirroring the later Roman republic era, especially if you subsitute the rape/racist allegations with sexual deviancy being a bottom gay bitch in roman courts... The question is, who is Marius and who is Sulla? >>4863 The question is has the US reached the limits of spoils that can be acquired from abroad with relative ease? I think the answer is no. Not for another few years I think.
>>4872 The US could still attain the spoils if it focused on one enemy at a time, however when its forces are stretched across the globe, like when the Roman Army became a giant border guard, it decays as a warfighting force to become an occupation force. Diminishing returns at the frontier and internal disorder would force the return of military forces from abroad to maintain domestic order. The curtailment of democratic rights would further continue to preserve government power. The US would ironically become much like the authoritarian regimes it loves to criticize, and the likelihood is that a fall will take many years as such an arrangement can be maintained for decades before meeting its fate. The party system will be of no difference as both serve the same interests, the allegiance of leadership holding purely nominal value. Like the Western Roman Empire plodding along while its citizens became the indentured serfs of the medieval era, though one can only guess at the force which would end central authority in Washington. Perhaps a corporate coup executed by disloyal mercenary companies, as such a conspiracy against the presidency had existed before. At present the United States government derives its legitimacy at a surface level from the consent of the governed, but once the governed have been converted into slaves their consent will no longer be of necessity for effective rule.
