>Chinese anti ship missile cruises in subsonic for longer range, then does supersonic sprint in terminal stage
>Chinese anti sub missile can carry multiple disposable dipping sonars that can cover more than 60km square diameter which can detect the newest American sub. Released like cluster munitions and send the data back to the ship where the ship can fire an anti sub missile that carries a torpedo that is released in the vicinity of the detected target.
>Chinese anti air system uses a passive VLPIR that even the newest American plane cannot detect, the target will only know it is being targeted once the missile is in terminal mode and uses it's GaN AESA terminal radar to lock on to the target, which gives the target no time to evade.

Why are Chinese innovation extremely impressive? I haven't seen these level of research and development from America or Russia.

Henry's CEO is autistic as fuck and starts screeching if you think that his rifle should feature loading gates. I'm 100% positive he posts in these threads.

It's more likely for Ruger to do a proper Winchester clone (or their own design), than it is for Henry to ever upgrade their design.
The Henry Long Ranger is unironically a fucking nice rifle though.

Firearms are weapons.
Weapons are means to extend power.

You can center your discussion on politics or on firearms, but you cannot dissociate firearms from politics entirely.

If you want documentaries, look up Thomas G. Hieronymus and what he called eloptic energy.
tl;dr version is magic interferes with electronics because it works with a form of energy that behaves partially like electricity and can induce transient voltages in a similar way a strong electromagnetic field can.
