I sometimes pretend to be pole and shit on krauts and EU just to stir shit.

I once left a gun visible on seat of my car and then locked the keys in - in the middle of a city. Normally i woul simply hike home and get spares, but since there was a rifle lying on backseat in plain view i had to camp there for hours untill my brother could bring them to me

I support Russia because I don't like the fags that support Ukraine. It is entirely based of contrarianism and spite I can't bother to give a damn.

Why didn’t Russia destroy all crossings over the Dnipro river? Are there advantages to keeping your enemy’s supply line infrastructure intact?
16 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because initially they thought they were going to capture the whole of Ukraine, so they wanted the infrastructure intact as much as possible to cooooooooorrupt it.

Then they got their asses handed to them and got put on the defensive. The bridges are out of range and, more importantly, beyond Russia's military capability to destroy.
If Russia destroys the dams then river would be larger and harder to make pontoons on

>Polish border offensive
This alone is larger then the entire deployed force of the Russian groups (it really isn't just the Russian army, Wagner, the Chechen forces, national police units etc all operate outside of regular army chains of command, not to mention DPR and LPR penal battalions/conscript forces) in Ukraine. This is also at the very extreme edge of the Belarus nation, and has very poorly developted logistics (ie rail network, Russian cannot operate outside of railway tracks). So there's no way they could get those troops there and supply them, not to mention that with NATO intel Ukraine is not missing that buildup.

>Chechen Wagner Kyiv attack
This is like....what Quintuple the size of Wagner? Willing to bet Chechens couldn't be wrangled for that either. Also they already tried this with the actual Russian army and they shit themselves all tehw way back to the border

>VDV attack

>300,000 reversists

The full might of the Russian army, Wagner Chechens, National police guard and now the mobilized hordes of Vatniks can barely hold this, so no.
It's not like he had another option which is why this whole thing is so fucking retarded and Western leaders did not expect the dipshit monkey to actually go through with it.

It's highly unlikely that R*ssia could have moooobilized that many soldiers to begin with but putting that aside, had they done so in advance the element of ''''''surprise'''''' would have been lost and arms shipments to Ukraine could have been ramped before rather than after the invasion. This might also have allowed Ukraine to preempt the treason in the south that allowed R*ssia to capture Kherson etc. in the first place. Overall, it seems doubtful that even if they had moooobilized first anything would've went differently. I guess their losses would've been higher sooner.
Is this real?

>Putin's got absolute power at his disposal, a spy background and assassination isn't beneath him, so why not just crack down on the corruption?
Because that's literally impossible for him.
That same corruption is the only base on which his power stands. And a totalitarian state with no freedom of speech and no free media is incapable of fighting corruption effectively anyway.

Resource on what these spec terminology mean

You shouldn't be chasing for spec values but they do exist and if you wanted to know what "better spec" values are there's a way to know which unit is desirable over another.
Most retailers won't post this info as they build NVDs to order, first come first serve, and depending on their grading scale of high, mid, low tier it may differ from retailers. If a retailer offer a “ready to ship” fully built units they will list the spec values. Hand select is an option from retailers that will try to match to your spec requirements.

Some reputable retailers:

What will you be using your night vision for?

Now that Russia's distracted in Ukraine, how feasible would it be for Georgia to reclaim its lands from Russian occupiers? What are their military capabilities, and how do the South Ossetian and Abkhazian militaries match.

Probably pretty feasible. It looks like Dagestan is about ready to boil over, so Putin may have internal revolutions to deal with soon.
Gib source please. A Russian balkanization would be glorious.

Georgia shouldn't fight Russia directly.

Just send "Advisors" to the Ukrainians.
Fascism in Georgia lost to the Yankees in 1860s. Fascism will lose again if they don't stop with their qtard election is rigged shit and try to become part of Russia.

Realistically it'd be scrapped, if you were really, and I mean REALLY, lucky then best you could hope for would be museum ship.
A very out there hypothetical, but maybe the 80's boom would allow the funds to restore said museum ship if Reagan pushed for Japan to also bolster it's Navy for the mutual defense pact, to go along with the modernisation of the Iowa's. I presume it would follow suit with modifying the stern for helicopter operations.
>most WW2 subs need to surface to fire
No. They went to periscope depth to fire because they needed to line up their shots. They still were under the surface and the only part that was visible was the scope, and maybe the snorkel.

The only time that a WW2 sub surfaced to engage enemy ships was to use a deck gun against unarmed or lightly armed merchant ships. When destroyers started escorting merchants, this gun combat quickly stopped because even a poorly armed destroyer with no armor was still able to maul a sub.

Hi /k/,

AR-15 and Glock 19 tier gun owner here.

Is the M1 Garand a "superior battle rifle" or is it just a 'historic' battle rifle? Is it objectively better for shooting commies (or krauts, I guess) than a modern bolt-action 30-06 hunting rifle? Is it a better battle rifle than an AR-10?

Thanks for your opnions, /k/.

Added the buttpad for length because the stock is too short for my Neanderthal arms. And yes, it does make it comfier to shoot.

A Garand is a great collectible, a fun, accurate gun to shoot and you can even hunt a deer or kill a bear with it if you want.

That said if you want a SHTF rifle you'd be better served with something more modern.

>Is Lyman strategically important besides moving the front line forward by a city
Back in the day Lyman was intended to be the site of a second spearhead to attack Slovyansk and Kramatorsk from the east while forces built up in Izyum did so from the west.

Then a lot of shit happened
>Izyum command post gets blown to shit
>Russia's redirects their forces to Sievierodonetsk and uses scorched earth to take the city
>a breakthrough in the old trench lines to the south causes Lysychansk to fall
>Kherson comes under threat so Russia redirects everything there
>Izyum gets wrecked along with all of the Kharkiv region
At this point Lyman's serving as a forward defense against threat to Sievierodonetsk's north, especially the supply hub in Svatove, but it is itself a bit awkward to defend due to its own positioning, which is why Ukraine fell back from it after an evacuation.

I think Svatove, the big target for the region (another supply hub), will likely come under threat from the west before Ukraine could plow through a break in the south through Lyman, but Ukraine needs to get rid of it regardless.
Ukraine could take Lysychansk without taking Lyman.

With a blue belly and the white radome I'd say it's a 34. Nose also seems a little wider even woth thw compression.
Even if they were forced they'd have a really hard time due to the limited range so they'd have to station them right near the borded which would be begging for another "accidental explosion" that takes out the airfield.
They couldn't into effective IFF and compensated by just making their (already kinda shit) anti-radar missiles blind to Soviet frequencies. The very same ones that Ukraine is using.
>Shot down a couple of our very best
They lost two damn near irreplaceable aircraft in the same vicinity by flying like fucking fools in hostile airspace. If this is the best they've got, I'm laffin.

Tell me that you live in a cuckstate without telling me you live in a cuckstate
your legal concerns are just nonsense fudd memeing. if your criminal attacker lives and runs away they will not report you to police. if your criminal attacker is too injured to run away, they will probably die. even if they live, realistically your attacker is an obvious criminal with a record/shitty life. their word in court is going to be looked at with way more scrutiny.
as it turns out, there's very few people with spotless lives that try to mug/attack people on the street. you, ideally, should be a normal upstanding citizen. that'll all weigh more than the fact that you like to carry a "scary" knife to defend yourself. the fact that you were attacked by a criminal is proof in itself that your need for a weapon was actually not a paranoid delusion.

if you carry a knife because you like to get into avoidable situations like road rage fights, bar fights, arguments with your neighbor, etc. then yeah; you're a retard and the knife will put you in jail after you stab some normie. then again so will a gun. at the end of the day, they follow the same rules. you don't think a gun owner has ever been characterized as "looking for trouble?" but ultimately that shit takes a backseat to the actual circumstances of the case. don't cuck yourself thinking the entire case is just going to rest on how scary your weapon is.
