Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

It's always worth having backup rifles, especially if you're already stocking a decent amount of x39. Even if you personally don't end up using the SKS in favor of your vz, you can always have a trusted friend/brother/father/wife use it alongside you. For the cost, you can't do much better than the SKS in Canada. As for lever arms, I've never ordered with them. I know they have a shitton of SKSs though.

I read the Wehmarcht would have faired a lot better if they had only built Panzer IVs instead of Panthers and Tigers. That late model Panzers IVs were more than enough to handle what the allies had. That the reliability, cost, and versatility and large numbers that could would offset any perceived advantage of the Panthers and Tigers over the Panzer IVs

There's also the issue that adding anymore weight to the design would lead to the suspension system breaking.
>>
>>44068103
supposedly, the panzer IV k was able to not only slope the front armor, but saved enough weight that they could also increase the turret armor without stressing the suspension

never produced, but it was an actual krupp proposal
it seems to have the same turret as before, so it didn't lose its turret ring diameter
>>
>>44068121
Lengthen the hull and add another suspension unit and the same turret can be kept.

>>44068129
They may have considered it but then it starts sounding like the original proposals for what became the Pz V. Which potentially subjects it to the same issues of adding more things to it. Germany had the chance to settle on a relatively simple, reliable, effective, tank and they didn't. Anything they make seems doomed to increasing demands.
Which is why I can defend stuff like the Tiger to an extent because it was ahead of the competition to the point the design was satisfactory from blueprint to production.

Sorry, my autism flared up for a second. Ideally, one full year would be ideal. But if that is not doable, then 10 weeks where the BCT and AIT training times stay the same, but the pre-deployment training gets cut down by a lot.
>>
>>44066154
yeah but why tho. Wouldn't they just use their own SOF, or a legit PMC with a track record?
>>
>>44066198
Well, "good" training isn't something you can reall crash through in 10 weeks, my basic training courses were 6 coupled with two months of trades training and that was just getting the relative basics of the trade. And that's a condensed program, compared to other training methods.
Like >>44066219 is saying though, anyone who's competent with experience will just go somewhere else with a better resume. You could always train a shitter militia composed of dogshit MENA troops and have them ready in a short period of time, but they'll be pretty bad and little more than cannon fodder. See Yemen.

Greetings, /k/.

Over the course of a couple of weeks, I have experimenting with making my own tungsten carbide rifle ammo. While the first batch had a few issues with keyholing, I believe that my second batch is much improved. Ignoring my shitty fucking aim, only one out of about 14 bullets that hit has failed to penetrate one of these 3/8" thick steel rifle targets.

While I still feel that these bullets can be improved, I figured I'd share some pictures and videos of these bullets and the process of making them. Keep in mind that I am just a slightly smarter than your average poorfag, so my tools and knowledge of materials science is fairly limited.

This is a 3/8" thick steel rifle target made out of AR500 steel. While it doesn't have a NIJ rating, the specs said that it could survive up to a .338 LM. If anyone knows of a fairly cheap (~$50) level IV plate that I can shoot to test these, let me know. For now, this is the best I could find.

>>44068198
the insert doesn't seem to make any contact with the rifling, only the copper jacket does.
>>
What's the weight of the finished bullet once the insert is seated inside?
>>
You read any of the articles in the IAA journal on penetrator design?
>>
>>
>>44068198
They're still in the copper jacket

>>44068212
Yeah, that's the plan. I just don't have the money to buy level IV plates just to shoot.

>>44068213
I custom ordered them from chinkland. I know the quality's probably not great but they're harder than anything else I have to test them with.

>>44068228
They go from about 150 grains to about 168-170

>>44068232
Not really, I assume it's not an optimal angle from all of the penetrator pics I've seen, though.

You need to disable 6+ satellites to cause any disruption, these launches require large liquid-fueled rockets that take months to set up and launch, and they still would only disrupt one area of the globe for 95 minutes a day. The fear of ASATs against anything but LEO is overblown.

Except it isn't, because while the bullet does fly in a parabola, that has nothing whatsoever to do with grouping.
High at 200 yards can still give you a very nice grouping as you miss the bullseye.

I should rephrase. I meant I wish people would share their actual loadouts , as in what they have in real life and share photos of that. This was sort of fun but once I sort of had everything I needed it makes more sense to show that you actually have it I guess. Just my thoughts.
