Did the Waffen SS have good combat performance in the war, or did they suck?
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Kinda mediocre, actually. The SS were political troops chosen for loyalty and fanaticism rather than competence and skill. This tended to make the Waffen SS aggressive but unskilled, often attacking difficult targets without sufficient forces or a realistic plan.
I think generally Fallschrimjagers were considered more dangerous and elite than the SS by the average allied grunt.
It's the link at the bottom. Usually you'd have to break it up like like doi(.)org for it to work (in the sense that anyone can just copy it and remove the brackets).
i tried it. wasn't that. i don't normally have problems with doi links

fr? Why the fuck would they throw away a good aircraft like that? Shit you could just sell those to boomers to recoup some money at least.
Not sure if you're joking or not, because this basically exact same situation happened with the Sammy B Robert's in the 80s and they did that and it worked.

I’m thankful to be smart enough to have a couple of really nice rifles but also to have the beaters that I built for fun with shit I got on sale. I couldn’t imagine having “this or that” mindset like some tards do
arggers thing life is call of duty tarkov and they will be running around and looting bodies solo like their hecking vidyagaems
I mean you should be a capable individual to help increase capability of your unit as a whole. Especially if you’re the “gun guy” of your group it’s probably good to have a few specialized rifle so you can fill whatever role needed.

Its exploded at like 15 meters height. Still produced mushroom cloud with soil.

155mm HE rounds at 5 meters airburst make just smoke puffs

Its 3000kg if not more.
(btw video is cut, no ammunition is visible inflight, first frame of action is already explosion)
Russians started adding ball bearings to their FAB series of gravity bombs. Probably 5mm and 12mm steel IIRC.

Coalition from hell. Spain brings nothing while France and Germany are impossible to work with. Even MGCS is looking doubtful which is a much simpler project. Expecting France to ditch Germany and Spain sooner or later and seek other partners (who though?).
Lol, lmao even. Very best case scenario they build a few prototypes, lie about their performance, and are never seen again, whilst pajeets in youtube comment sections praise the bogus performance numbers for decades to come.
This will be the definitive 6th gen fighter by which everything else is measured. Unlikely to be exported though. Maybe a gibbed version will make it's way to export 20 years after it enters service.
On paper they have everything they need to succeed and it seems to be proceeding well so far. It's the only non-American project I'm optimistic about and if successful will likely become the primary export plane of the generation.
Hugely sceptical but I won't dismiss it. There's too many question marks around Chinese aircraft for me to be certain. At least they'll produce a lot of them?
The radio silence on the project makes me think it's been canned but maybe I've just missed something. Mainly I don't trust boeing kek.
Boeing is finished, have you seen their commercial plane sales?
The main idea behind all these 6th gen aircraft is networking and unmanned wingmen drones. It is a system made up of smaller individual systems.
And knocked it the fuck out with the B-21. NG is fine. If Boeing even has enough design engineers left in the states to work on this I would be legitimately surprised.
>Mainly I don't trust boeing kek
Boeing hasn't won or anything, so not sure why you're worried before they've even been selected

> the Navy announced Aug. 26 that Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are in the running for the airframe, while GE Aerospace and Pratt & Whitney are competing for the engine.

> In July, the White House connected the F/A-XX program with a special access program in the budget called Link Plumeria. This classified program is the Pentagon’s fourth-largest research and development program, with $11.5 billion for fiscal 2023-27 included in the Defense Department’s recent budget request.

The FBI told social media companies to censor the NY Post’s Hunter Biden Laptop story. Intelligence officials said it was Russian disinformation. They lied. They lied to the benefit of their preferred candidate.

I disagree with a lot of what Trump has done and failed to do. But this cannot fucking stand you fucking cock sucker. Do you understand what fucking happened?

A bunch of fanatics stormed the capitol because their favorite politician lost. Somewhere along that line some people thought they would start an insurrection. Somewhere in-between that a cop/guard is killed by a mob of the politically retarded and the American Flag is taken down for a politicians flag.

The further development made me switch out a chemical which ended up in a brown color, I wish it would still look as your version ;_; But I take the brown pill to get that crazy >100% performance improvment,lol. Pic related another day of rain to fuck up out test sample, so heavy our sunshade ropes got torn from wind KEK. In the background you see DRI, industrial subformulation (diluted DRI) and that brown rust spot on the left is our friend Eezox. Stopped counting what the plate in the front did, maybe its the 10th time getting rained
Isn't that quite literally just going back to .30 Luger?
That said, I kinda wish that had stayed around. It would be pretty interesting to see what some .30 Luger +Ps could do.
Mind you none of the guns that I applied this to have rusted but I also haven't gotten them that wet yet. I'll probably start applying this to more going forward though since I think I will be shooting in the rain a lot more.
Your version might not be as strong as the release version but its 100% doing the job. Last week I talked to a fluid scientist about oversea performance again salt water and he told me everything above 24h is G2G to be used as a rust protection for the ship transport, your version is >30h and the new is around 100h IMAO. Gonna send you some more once we got our 1st production in AZ, including some of my carolina reaper seeds ;) I wonder what effect it got when used inside a gun, like using it for dead/non-moving parts inside handguns or a BCG. Would be based if the dry film is able to separate the carbon from the surface to make it easy cleaning
Sounds good, I look forward to it. Lmk when you send an email though since it randomly signs out but it keeps the email numbers active like it's still signed in.

It means you should double-check what you've loaded into your Skorpion.
Aside from it being a Dragunov cope in a weaker caliber and the stock cracking issue, there just isn't enough demand in Canada relative to the number of guns they brought in.
I'd buy one if it was a buy one get one free deal

How extreme could you go with 'quantity over quality' in modern war? For example what if Russia armed a million new mobiks with pipe guns and converted civilian vehicles into armor?

See ww2 and what russian willpower can achieve, then come back.
>it wasn't w*ctoid aid! Russian willpower psychically manifested 300,000 trucks from the air!
you mean get lend-leased a bunch of equipment that isn't dogshit? how about the slaughter of millions of your own people because commies are cool?

ill give you something, the russians really sure can take a raping and come back asking ass first asking for more, and then act really proud of how much you got raped
Within moderation it's never bad to have more infantry. In fact having too little infantry at the start of the war is a trouble all western armies have struggled with. And they will continue to suffer it because the risk:return ratio for other weapons systems is better, leading us to invest there, but they don't replace the need for infantry. Adding an extra platoon to every infantry company and an extra infantry battalion to every brigade would be great for commanders.

But without the rest of the system, air power, arty, etc, it would be a waste. Unless you're next door to the enemy or have teleporters to get there, you need the full combined arms plus logistics or you can forget about 80% of offensive operations and 50% of defensive ones.

When Russians feel they are in danger and on the brink of defeat, they rally, shout their battle cries, and push forward, leave their enemies overwhelmed not just by numbers but emotionally by the sheer sight of Russian relentlessness

They have legs bigger than mine and I squat over 400lbs. Also your image isn't really a good one, it looks shopped either because something with the quality and the lighting... or it was shopped.
your lack of testosterone is why you will never be a global superpower.
I'm American. A slender fit and toned physique is infinitely better than those cattle and their ridiculously fat legs.
