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.

Your imagining some hyper accurate thing huh, think more like beam focused to have a 10m diameter at the targets range. You don't have to be hyper precise, don't even need a lot of power depending on how long you want it to take.

Less explosive power than a random bomb on a fixed trajectory at ultra premium price, anyone greenlighting that project needs to be charged for treason because it's a criminal waste of military funds and efforts.

This is more nuclear stupid juice like atomic winter, effective tabloid headlines for men, although it has the advantage of a strike without an immediately preceding launch for warning. However there is a finite volume of space for each location in geosync, and all Russia, for example, would have to do is send some spy cams up there and look in all that space.

I can hit anything out to about 3k feet with it.
I'm just worried about the future, and being out here in extreme rural Alaska I don't have access to a gun shop, only ammo.
I also have a 9mm and a semi auto shotgun, with alot of different kinds of ammo.

But at the end of the day I'm most proficient with my bolt rifle.

How fucked am I shtf?
Also have a plate carrier with plates, but no helmet.

https://www.scribd.com/doc/215884687/SWAT-Extreme-Cold-Weather-Test-April-1986 here you go TLDR the AK based weapons (galil and valmet) and the FN FNC are the guns that pass all the tests.
>>
>>39976116
also the FN FNC is largely based off AK type but uses stanag magazines. If the SG550 was involved id assume it would also fare the same. so get an AK type. SG550 also has a lower for using AR mags.

What is the most uninformed thing you've heard someone say about guns. Not necessarily looking for anti gun soccer moms or fudd lore, just stupid/cringy stuff.

Are you 16 or some shit? Ask the Brits how that pilot connection worked out.

>>39976014
A relatively cheaper dedicated attack aircraft still makes sense. I'm not saying the a-10 cant be improved. It can, but don't expect super fancy fighters to perform the same role. We've had to relearn that lesson too many times.

If the argument that both planes are ineffective, I'd have to agree. CAS is just there to bring one more form of contact against the enemy that he has to deal with. It really isn't all that effective outside of breaking their morale and forcing them to alter their tactics in ways that make it easier for other forces to destroy them. The A-10 has that in spades vs other aircraft. Keep it, or find another aircraft that does the same thing.

The fuck are you on about? Multi roles and strategic bombers have been providing the majority of CAS for the last few decades.

>>
>>39976096
Different types of CAS, anon. The preplanned missions where airforce officers sit around planning every excruciating detail is one thing, but the idea of providing constant flow into an area is better suited for a cheaper, slower aircraft. Multi roles are a stupid idea, and you know it. A duck can swim, fly, and walk, but is not a marlin, a hawk, or a cheetah is it?

I don't understand why do people always say that snipers are so badass? Keep in mind that I've never been in the military so I wouldn't know, but from my perspective, snipers are just little shits who hide from their enemies and use underhanded tactics. They're effective, but not badass.

>>39975835
And what you don't realize is all the hard work and skill it takes to be a little shit that effectively hides while being able to shoot people.

Also, by your logic everyone in the military is a little shit who hides and uses underhanded tactics. Unless you think regular grunts just stand up and shoot each other like they're Redcoats still. Then again this is a bait thread.

The person I was replying to said "if you're not a sniper you're a faggot because snipers get stuff did", as for the sun tzu part, this has nothing to do with ethics, if snipers get shit done they get shit done, I was talking about whether or not they deserve being called the most badass of all, as I often see people do

>Egzamin na patent jest obiektywnie łatwy, wystarczy nie być debilem (w sumie to nie, nawet debile to zdają), porobić testy i troszkę postrzelać.
Chyba że ci się trafi jakieś chujowe pytanie na teorii. Na moim teście w pierwszych dwóch o prawo (muszą być dobrze) dostałem coś o zasadach dotyczących obcokrajowców, kompletnie się tego nie spodziewałem. Jak chciałem oddać egzaminujący mi palcem po cichu wskazał to pytanie, zaznaczyłem inaczej, zdane 10/10. Wnioski dwa: Trzeba się wykuć nawet najmniej istotnych szczegółów z UoBiA i fajnie mieć luźnych egzaminujących.

Look into Slabinski's eyes. Does he look like what an officer should be, with quiet repose, confidence, and honor? Does he look like the portrait of any other MoH recipient, who take pride in the fact that they did what was expected of them, and not in receiving a medal?

Fuck him and fuck ST6-just more gayvy seal propaganda pushed through NSW.

The CR2 life extension program has been given authorization for a new gun, probably meaning a new turret.

New 120mm will almost certainly be the long L55 rather than the short L44 that the US uses.

But will the turret be a new design, or will it be an Abrams/Leopard turret mounted to the tank.

Not saying that you are wrong with most of it, but wasnt the problem with DU that the potential RHA penetration was actually going up a bit after the first 200m and was only reaching back on the same level after 550m? Wouldnt this somewhat cause an worse than to expect performance with the L55? Not saying it aint better just that the modern DU rounds that are made were with the focus of the L44.

which leo turret are you refering to, and why do you think it's trash?

>>39976066
from my understanding the peak pressure will be the same with the longer barrel, but that pressure will be sustained for longer allowing more energy to be transferred to the round

>>39976030
>Also, by using the L55 and DU rounds the UK will now have the most powerful tank armament in NATO.
Actually, no. At typical L55 speeds (and over), WHA is superior to DU.
