It's the smart thing to do. It sucks balls to have to search for parts that fit multi brands and designs of vehicles. I own two cars and getting the parts and working on them is a HUGE fucking pain.

Gorka suits look pretty gucci, but what about practicality? How would you compare wearing Gorka with western style cuts?

I love the Russian style patterns, notably some of the summer and autumn patterns inspired by late war Germans.

Why do the Russians go for baggy clothes? They literally have about 100 sizes in them, so don't tell me it's to be universally sized. How does it fair in very hot and humid summer weather in southern United States?

How would it be with a plate carrier? Comfortable?

It seems like the American companies that use different, more advanced fabrics, notably from Kommandostore and Russian Cold Camo are high quality. But they also look like they are gimicky marketed toward airsoft kids and Russian LARPers.

For this kind of money, why not just buy some crye or high quality western cut combat clothes?

>redpill me on Gorkas
Like most of what /k/ shills, gorkas are extremely distinct and offer a very specific aesthetic, but they're built for one specific purpose and don't excel at anything else and are not a "go-to" unless you live in Colorado.
A true gorka (anorak not parka) will not work well with a plate carrier because the kangaroo pocket is totally covered by it. It's also a heavy canvas material that doesn't breathe well and may give you hotspots on your PC shoulder straps unless you're wearing an accommodating under-layer.
If you're "operating" in central Colorado or up in the Adirondacks in spring/fall, look no further, the Gorka is an amazing outer layer for that environment. For everything else, you're better off with an endless amount of other options.

The Gorka is meant to work with Russian kit, in Russian/Kazakh/Chechen/Afghan mountain environments.
The Gorka is perfect if you are in a moderately cool, arid, windy environment and want a loose-fitting garment that protects you from getting scrapes and tears from underbrush and evergreen, and will protect you when kneeling/posting up against forest duff.
The Gorka will make your life a living hell if you get rained on, are in direct sun below forty degrees of latitude, or are in a humid area.

To put it in perspective, I was in the Adirondacks in mid-april, 55 degree F day, windy and partial sun - my BARS Gorka was amazing, the perfect clothing. Wearing it in Virginia is fucking hell - it doesn't cut wind enough for winter here, and the sun will bake you alive from March to November if you wear it.

If you have an SADF rig, Gorka is fine. For a PC, you're better off wearing a T-shirt, flannel shirt, sweater, etc. If you're actually cold, you're much better off wearing something like a Snow P-51 jacket that's wide to go OVER your PC so your PC doesn't compress your insulating layer and make you sweat into your jacket.

>>48106698
DESU, for Virginia, the best thing I've found for the temperamental spring/fall around here is this old MTP-PCS smock with zips in the armpits. It's loose enough I can roll up the sleeves if it gets too hot, and unzip the stink sinks.
For winter here, look into a Boathouse Stevenson rowing jacket. They're like 100% waterproof, they have a vent at the scapula, and have a built-in waterproof sitting flap. It's not high-speed-low-drag but with a merino wool base layer it makes winter on the Chesapeake a lot less fucking miserable.

Why is the international community letting China put air bases and harbors in the SCS where their claims have been rejected by courts and rulings?

It's one thing to claim a stupid rock, but when you artificially build on it and militarize in that changes the game. Whats theoretically stopping them from developing giant landmasses through their claims and choking over a third of the worlds trade?

This.
In WWI and WWII some starforts became impregnable fortresses.
Verdun in France in WWI and Brest in soviet union during WWII off the top of my head.

People guarding them only got wiped once super heavy artillery was used (the kind we don't have anymore).
Today equivalent would be a GBU-57 from a bomber.

And even against that you can guard the Germans made structures like the St-Nazaire sub pens that withstood older types of earthquake bombs.
