how the fuck did the baguettes figure it out so fucking early???
2S19 only came about in 1989; K9 is only getting it with the A2 in some 4-6 years; PZH2000 needs manual loading of propellant; M109 is still fucking manually loaded to this day.
i am genuinely baffled; i thought french armor was second rate at best, but this waaaay too ahead of its time to even be remotely bad

Those are counted since the first recorded mention of a state, AFAIK.
Their record got hit in the Franco-Prussian War, they then won WW1 thanks to the Brits starving out Germany with a blockade. WW2 they got raped. After that it continued. They beat Vietnam in 1947 or so and then lost Vietnam later on. Then Algeria and all those other colony fights.

WW2 is bad because they surrendered DESPITE not needing to. They thought that WW2 would be like the old wars. Surrender, everybody meets up and signs some deals, you give X land to Germany and some money and you got about your business, maybe try to get it back 20 years later. But no, they were fully annexed. Millions of soldiers surrendered because they thought it'd be like the old days. Meanwhile the Bongs were like 'holy shit no' and while the French seethe over Dunkirk, they forget the Bongs also evacuated non-Brits in their tens of thousands.
A lot of nations inflate and deflate to make things seem better. Your guys did a heroic last stand and died to a man? Well you say there was only 1,000 of them when there was actually 4,500 and they fought 100,000 instead of 50,000 and they killed 16,000 instead of 4,000. Makes you look better, they look worse. Remember, a lot of these battles were during wars and you needed propaganda victories. As they say, history is written by the victor. This is why most good historians, when looking at a battle, will look at what the winner and loser said about the battle in their histories and try to extrapolate a number. There is also issue with a lot of nations doing this worse or better than others. For example, the USSR said 8,000,000 died in WW2 when it was actually 20,000,000. So you gotta see who said it and when and what nation they hailed from and what their general belief is.

You just have to take everything with a grain of salt and realise that a lot of battles are not as clear cut as the wiki page says.
>WW2 is bad because they surrendered DESPITE not needing to
Average French infantry carried on a saying from WW1, "they made us do it once".
France was never going to win WW2 after enduring so much to win the Great War.
China seems really low for how long it has been around. US seems relatively high for its age. Need something like battles per year of existence, or some percentage of battles won.

The British are far more honest about it than the Argentinians saying

At least they quit moaning about Belgrano warcrimes and how they actually sank a carrier
The Argentines were a few dud missiles and bombs away from making things interesting. Try to destroy the British transport ship carrying their helicopters asap. Keep the obsolete surface ships in port so prevent a Belgrano.
Wait 6-12 months before doing anything, since the bongs were considering leaving the Falklands anyway.
>think I read somewhere that they could've won but the planning was really incompetent and they were scared of Chile
Their sole win condition was bongs giving up and thinking it was too much trouble, but given that Thatcher was in charge (and very much in need of a political victory) that was never going to happen. For an Argentine victory to be viable you'd have to change so many factors about the war that you'd basically be describing a different conflict entirely.
Even that wouldn't have done it, the Reagan administration greenlit and put in place preparations to transfer the USS Iwo Jima to British forces in the event they lost an aircraft carrier.

More mass means less muzzle flip. Its a really shitty way of reducing felt recoil.
Maybe? That's a little overkill. Gen 3-4 with a milled dot, minus connector, polished trigger surfaces, and some frame work is all you need, then you can still compete in carry optics, not open division where you have to compete against the retarded gamer guns
or you can buy a good gun out of the box
at that point just put a heavy weapon light on your gun
>theres too much punctuation and effort in your post, it must be from reddit.

If cost/availability wasn't an factor, would there be any point in choosing .300 Blackout over 8.6 Blackout? In the context of a suppressed bolt action, I don't see that 300 has any advantage, other than lower recoil and somewhat less weight.

If the NFA didn't exist, it'd be interesting to see a 50 BMG based whisper cartridge, like 750 whisper or something
>That's only ~25% more mass
What do you expect? You're only adding about 1mm to the bullet diameter, it's not going to be a huge increase. FPBP got it right. If you're capping the velocity at the speed of sound you need a biiiiiig booooolit to maximize power. .510 Whisper has more energy than a 300 win mag at 500 yards.
My 308 one works great, I've shot 150gr ears off and it is tolerable. Waiting on a 375 bullet mold to arrive to test out the 375 version.
I'm not sure of the details because I never watched the video, but the thumbnail suggests that Kentucky Ballistics has a .50 BMG blown out to .700 to take .700 Nitro Express bullets.
It's trivial to get a sporting use exemption for big bore wildcats. There's just very little demand so no one beyond a few autistic handloaders bothers with rounds like that.

The Battle of Anqing (安慶之戰) was a prolonged siege of the prefecture-level city of Anqing in Anhui, China, initiated by Hunan Army forces loyal to the Qing Dynasty against the armies of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. The siege began in September 1860 and ended on September 5, 1861, when imperial forces under the command of Zeng Guoquan breached the walls of the city and occupied it.[2]

Anqing was strategically important as it allowed access to the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, including the Taiping capital of Nanjing downriver. It served as the base of Taiping activities in Anhui, Hubei and Hunan.[1] It had been held by the Taiping since the early stages of the Rebellion in June 1853.[3] Zeng Guofan, commander of the provincial Hunan Army and de facto leader of the dynasty's war against the Taiping, saw a need to reclaim the walled city to further his campaign against the rebellion along the Yangtze. A siege of Anqing was initiated in late-1860 involving up to 10,000 Hunan Army troops.

In October 1860, the "Brave King", Chen Yucheng, was dispatched by the Taiping leadership with an army of over 100,000 to test imperial forces at Anqing, with the ultimate aim of seizing Wuchang upriver. However, while en route to Anqing, they were intercepted by 20,000 elite Manchu cavalry at Tongcheng and forced to retreat.[4]
not implessive
What the fuck are these meme ass numbers?
100k just to test some imperial forces? Why do they always make these fake numbers up?
This happened in the mid 1800s and the numbers are not faked lmao. You know the British watched this shitshow unfold right?
China has more people than Europe and US combined.

>No Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer
>But the stabilized Commander's Weapon Station has a thermal sight
So how much does the latter make up for the former? I'm guessing you're not getting true Hunter Killer capability or the same image quality for the commander like you would if he had a dedicated CITV. But it still seems like it's a pretty big improvement over previous A1's (or tanks with no Commanders thermals) since it does give the commander at least some independent thermal sighting capability.

>Beware, this post is a false flag by warriortard
The driver also has a thermal, but it’s shorter range for situational awareness and driving in difficult conditions.
It's not that it's slower by default, but that it can be slower depending on the layout of the land. Due to the commanders gun not being tied directly to the fire control system there's always the possibility that you get the very old problem of "the commander, who has a higher vantage point, can see a partially obscured the target but the gunner can't immediately identify so they have to take a moment"

Wouldn't the commander using a lower mounted CITV instead of a higher remote weapons station have a bit of trouble spotting a target like that in the first place as well though?

Though I suppose going over a ridge in an AFV is always a bit dicey as far as situational awareness goes.

>Beware, this is a warriortard thread
>Beware, this post is a false flag by warriortard
I think that over time lurking more has decreased my understanding of what warriortard even is.

Japan is essentially doing a 1 seater EX with their JSI. The E is being used as the upgrade platform because it's newer and has a longer service life than older F-15Cs, not because of the WSO.

To kick us off I recommend the Condor Bushlore as a mid-range bush knife. Great steel, great construction, blade thiccness is on point, remember to keep it oiled, sexy old school dark wood and brass pin asthetic, set you back about £60 in Bongland and probably about 40% cheaper than that stateside. There's a 3" version also to snap up as a back-up, for those I'll accustomed to the old school aesthetic it's available in micarta.

I like my Iisakki Järvenpää Pikku-uppo. It’s the little brother to the Jätkänvuolu. They say it’s intended for youth but I find it to be a good overall size and very comfortable to use. I think I paid less than $70 for it shipped. The rat tail thing goes all the way through the handle. The fit and Finnish around the ferrule and the cap on the end leave something to be desired though. It replaced my Marttiini which was even more reasonably priced. I like the blade geometry of the Järvenpää far better than the Marttiini.
Its factory made, Iisakki Järvenpää was a blacksmith back in middle/late 1800s.
The issue with those "cup" sort of fittings in factory made products is what you described, there is a gap. You can handfit it properly yourself, but all factory products come with a shoddy cup fitting.
Martiini has it the worst IMO, and their fucking frong finger guards arent even brass in most of their knives, its fucking shitty cheap cast metal coated in brass....
Want quality handles that arent shoddily mass produced? Thats gonna cost you.

No doubt there are nicer examples of Puukko’s . But for a mid-tier knife in a mid-tier knife thread it preforms admirably

NEC Turbografix 16, the first 16bit system. Never really caught on, due to price really. Nintendo (8 bit) was so entrenched by the time "Super" Nintendo (16 bit) came out, they were just a small market share. But also the first with both composite and S-video outputs. I may be wrong in some detail, it's been so long.

Also actually a really cool way to get into night vision. I don't think the "delay" is as bad as people try to make it seem and I think it's actually helpful, it enforces more deliberate movement in general walking reaching grabbing etc and when you get under analog nods you'll be ahead of the game and be able to move better and faster. Can those take pictures? That would be a cool plus.
