rafale bros, IT'S OUR FUCKING TIME
33 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Rafale isn't certified to carry US nukes. It was never on the table in the first place.
It can’t solve the Ukrainian Air Force’s biggest problem (Russian AD boxing Ukrainian fighters in and MiG-31s lobbing R-37 and R-77 missiles at them with impunity)
Why are all you retards acting like Ukraine is going to get Rafale's? Mirage 2000s? Yes, possibly. Rafale's? No fucking way.

Sound crazy.
It can. EWAR jamming on the Rafale would force the Russians to get closer to get lock or prevent a good firing solution. The Rafale is a surprisingly good platform for jamming.

What's worth fighting over in the desert (resources, land)?
That'll last about a week. What about next week? Holy shit, this is just dribs and drabs.
Reminder that these are the FMS (foreign military sales) variants that have been lost in combat. They have all the advanced shit stripped out of them including the DU armor and are crewed by inexperienced crews. I'm fairly certain the only American Abrams combat loss was a friendly fire incident during Desert Storm.
Handheld launchers:
RPG-7 and some newer launchers like the RPG-29
“Man-portable” launchers:
Fagot, Konkurs, Kornet
Vehicles with AT capability: too many to list them all
I am also very certain that there is no tank in the world that can take an ATGM to the back of the turret.

where to buy good holsters than can clip on and off easily? I'm lefty and need something for my glock 19. I have one from safari land but its a pain in the ass to thread it though my belt each time.

>off easy
As someone with a theis holster that comes off a little too easily, you dont want that.
I use jm custom kydex wing claw 2.5 light bearing with my Glock 19. I just switched from the discreet carry mono block clip with the lips underneath them to pull the dots. I’ve been using discreet carry for like 4 years now and honestly they’re just annoying to get on and off, even the mono block. They always get stuck underneath my belt and the metal scratches things I brush up against. I wouldn’t run a single clip or a holster without a wing claw anymore.
you want a paddle style holster, or a clip style holster. dont look up anything thats a "belt loop" style holster. Look into any refutable manufacturer, Galco, safariland, tenicor, veddar, ect
paddle holsters are great but they're not ideal for concealed carry. nothing wrong with having more than one holster, of course, but if you get a paddle holster you will definitely want to have an IWB holster as an alternative.
Also, since you seem to be relatively new to this, what kind of belt are you using? You will probably want a kydex or steel reinforced belt. they make carrying a lot more comfortable.
I use a Clinger IWB holster, all of their styles use clips that go over your belt rather than having to be threaded.

>Brazil develops its own prototype tank
>Looks interesting enough to possibly be adopted for full scale production
>cancelled project and the engineering firm goes bankrupt
tfw we were robbed of seeing a proper South American made MBT. Now Brazil is still stuck with Leopard 1s and other Cold War era rustbuckets.
I doubt it would be a supertank or anything, but it'd be cool to see more diversity in what's on the market, it'd be like the Tank world's equivalent of the Gripen or something, the budget 2nd choice for less wealthy countries.

"Forças Blindadas" are more Guarani versions, right now they're focusing on the engineering and mortar versions, Finland already offered the NEMO turret.
The idea is the same, BR elites would rather pillage their own country and sell to US/Europe/China than actually work to change and develop the country.

no soul in her anymore with the new upgrade.
Is retrofitting new turrets into hulls older than any currently serving tank crewman really worthwhile?
why not? the hull is just a chunk of steel. the turret is where all the technology is. think of it like putting a new engine and body onto a truck chassis from the 60's
Putting a new turret on the same chassis makes more of a difference than a new hull with the same turret.
That is to say, yes you can save money by upgrading the important part and still get good performance.
I don't know anything about Turkey but they're based for providing me with modern Patton footage. Refreshing to see a non-commie Cold War era tank in combat.

He has as much right and necessity of wearing, owning and using all that stuff as everybody else in that thread.
That shit looks dumb.
They armed literally every mine worker before the finale fight
Basically. I think the idea with the HECU is that they are a battalion sized formation within Force Recon that is specialized for conflict in a CBRN environment. The very fact they exist is probably proof that in the Half-life universe, Saddam actually used his sarin stockpiles during the Gulf War. Necessitating such a large, specialized force.

Can you retards and shills please stop. The US has no less than 2 ABCTs constantly cycling through Europe. They are constantly moving around for training and to go back and from the US. This is equivalent of schizos in the US video taping NTC rotations and thinking the UN is about to invade.

Pic unrelated
Sauce on pic? Google/Yandex isn't giving me anything
Don't know Denver well enough to confirm that part, but I'm enough of an /n/ autist to recognize the Union Pacific autoracks that it's passing, so yeah it's definitely the US.
I can't wait for the Russians to find all the easter eggs we planted for them. I think it'll make for a really fun Easter.

Most of the combat memoirs I have come across are either from flag officers or enlisted men. If any of you are interested in a book from the perspective of a junior infantry officer, then I highly recommend pic related. In a way it almost reminded me of the last quarter of Starship Troopers.

It's been four years or so. What sort of death ray have they managed to put into orbit by now?

17 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
The point of X-37 is that it’s orbits are unpredictable, it can change them easily and with a low chance of detection, at least for limited periods of time. It’s basically the only advantage of a spaceplane
I have to agree, "nothing" is the obvious answer. But I still think it wouldn't be outlandish for them to have some sort of "weather satellite" loaded with ablative coated jdams or something like it.
Not predictable, yes, but back-calculatable. Ya can't hide what orbit you're currently on. If you might lose sight of it and it might do a maneuver using the atmosphere during that period resulting in you not tracking it immediately after the trajectory change, but once you're on that trajectory, your orbit can be solved for.
Why would a space weapons system have to be running hot constantly when there's no space war on? They could launch it cold and leave it off with only the manuvering and monitoring system active.
Space Marines WHEN?

As I hate to admit it 343 made the right call by designing enemies and their equipment to be easily identifiable in gameplay. Unfortunately they lack the talent to make it look good at the same time.
They've got some kind of woo woo space recoil dampening technology. That's why scrawny female Cadets can magdump with +p+ .308 and not budge an inch and one hand fire the 8ga supermagnum.

Even light armor in universe has advanced to the point that regular rifles and pistols with modern style AP ammunition are supposed to be steeply disadvantaged, and even the Halo 1 era guns are next to useless against covenant heavy infantry (there is a description of a Brute's skull deflecting a dozen .308 AP rounds and him continuing to fight even after his head had caught fire) necessitating the creation of guns like the BR, which was supposed to be some outrageously high velocity burst fire elephant gun, like a .375H&H but moving at twice the velocity.
That's because it fires Uncle Johnsons pissin' hot handloads which have like 7 times the pressure of our primitive, current day 5.7mm rounds

It's exactly as it should be, defeating and dominating Humanity.

Why do I think that modern firearms look so out of place? Its hard to explain. They just don’t look right when handled by normal people to me.
