How does it save length? The barrels are just pointing to the rear. If anything, making the third turret superfiring would shorten the length a little bit since the barrels would be partially occupying the same point in the length as the second turret. I think the reason that was not done was because then you have a very high turret which results in a tall, heavy, armored, barbette. That can result in top-heaviness.

Title says it all really, I'm looking for information regarding the average Soviet soldier's equipment during the Soviet-Afghan war.

I'm talking about helmets, load bearing equipment, uniform, etc. Things like small arms are also included but I'm not really fussed about the type of artillery they fielded during this time just yet.

I'd appreciate any information and/or sources, thanks.
>>
>>42388589
A lot of them ditched their issued boots for whatever sneakers they could get - typically black market Adidas (thus the infamous sticker in the BTR), because they were a lot more practical in the endless Afghan dust.
>>
>>42388589
Based on pictures i saw here and elsewhere, typical uniforms were afghankas (summer or winter versions, in multiple kinds of camouflage) and early gorka or KLMK oversuits, with panamanka or syriyka caps or SSh-68 helmets for headwear. Im not sure on this one, but i think the body armour used in this period was 6b2. If not, its either 6b1 or 6b3. Oh. and the chest rigs you can usually see on pics are nicknamed lifchik.

Oh, and if you feel like dishing out some money, this looks like a pretty good source.

If I recall correctly they used some type 56 chest rigs captured from the Taliban. What are you looking for exactly?

I'm heading to Alaska in a few weeks for a fishing trip. I was urged to carry some sort of bear/wildlife defense handgun due to the places we're going. Bears are a concern Everyone else is carrying a .460 or .44mag. I picked up a Glock 20 because I'll actually use it outside of this trip. What sort of holster should I get? Chest rig? Hip? Drop holster? I've only carried a Glock 19 on my hip and a Smith shield in my boot. I was leaning towards a chest rig so it wouldn't weigh my belt down during the hikes to the fishing spots. Anyone have advice in these situations?

1. Bears are pussies, it doesn't matter what caliber you use, just carry something you feel confident using under life-or-death stress
https://www.ammoland.com/2018/02/defense-against-bears-with-pistols-97-success-rate-37-incidents-by-caliber/
2. use the same kind of holster you use for your 19 to maximize the skill crossover and minimize retraining time

What kind of idiots are you hunting with?

You dont shoot bears, you use bear spray and they'll fuck off no problem, more so than if you'd shoot them with a limp dick pistol

If you're really so worried, give everybody the finger and bring a 12 gauge pump with high mass slugs because it will do more to stop the shit you wont be as easily stopping with bear spray

>You dont shoot bears, you use bear spray and they'll fuck off no problem, more so than if you'd shoot them with a limp dick pisto
You better hope. Have both.
A bear charging you isn't going to stop instantly when it hits a cloud of peppers spray.
However if he's just milling around getting a little too close maybe that'll make him fuck off.

Buy a gallon of anal lube and a VPN service, that way you'll be ready for Abdallah's giant Pakistani Indo-Aryan cock and will be able to vent afterwards via shitposting on the Interwebs with threads like ">be american >get shot" or "why do americans shart in the mart?" without being arrested by the secret police for thought crimes and having your illegal unregistered butter knife ceased and destroyed.

Disinfect and recycle a bunch of glass bottles and refill them with your own filtered water. It will last longer and glass won't turn you into a tranny like BPA plastics do.
Also move out in the middle of nowhere like Scotland and just grow veggies and sheeit, you might be more likely to get some kind of state approved cuck rifled too out of London since that would appear to be a legitimate reason to be issued a license.

Do you have to pay a cuck stamp for each NFA item on a single firearm? For example, would you need to pay separately for an integrally suppressed full giggle MP5?

If it's all on the same serial, I don't think so.

Suppressors are always separate items unless they are integral to the gun.

Reminder for all tokarev fans to join the 327 magnum gang so you can shoot a modern round with the similar ballistics. Never mind that 327 magnum firearms and cartridges are even less available than 7.62x25.

>>42364939
Velocity is squared; this is why a smaller grain rifle bullet is capable of much more damage than it's size would suggest.

I just like Tokarev for the gloves, with the stripes on them and the two fingers uncovered. I don't know why it's like that but I find it pleasing.

Let's say you have to assemble a squad of 7 bois, as well as outfit them with gear, that will have to complete a mission where the location, conditions or even the specifics of the mission are completely unknown.

What kind of specialists will you assign and what kind of gear will you give them in order to have the chance of success to be the highest?

Depends on how much shit we're allowed to have, but I'll assume I have unlimited access to any amount of practical equipment. Also assuming all members have good knowledge of basic useful skills i.e. first aid, medical care, automotive repair, etc. and “roles” will generally just be carrying shit.

3 (including myself) of the 7 will be traps
As-Val or AK-104 when weapon not specified.

>1x AT
RPG-7 with equal parts frag and HEAT warheads. No explanation needed.
>1x AA
An Igla or something
>1x MG
PKM, because you never know when you might need large volumes of fire.

One with an SV-98, another with an SVD
