Resource on what these spec terminology mean

https://apollogearco.com/blogs/news/night-vision-specs-explained
https://gloomgroup.com/blogs/night-vision-info/night-vision-specifications-understanding-what-they-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.

Guinea fowl are great too. They can take care of themselves much better than chickens, they will roost in trees so you don't have to worry about maintaining a predator-proof coop. They kill snakes on sight and they're also excellent guard animals since they'll freak out if they see an intruder whether that's a human or animal.

>A former US Army general said that Russia's announced mobilization of 300,000 reservists was a "jaw-dropping" sign of weakness.

>Mark Hertling, who commanded the US Army Europe, explained in a Twitter thread that he has personally witnessed how the Russian army is "poorly led and poorly trained."

>Hertling, who for a time also commanded all basic and advanced soldier training for the US Army, said that during two visits to Russia he found the army's training to be "awful."

>He compared Russia's army training with the US', which typically involves new soldiers getting 10 weeks of basic training across several sites from "very professional drill sergeants," and many going on to get more specialized training.

>The former general cited a Moscow Times article from July, six months into the invasion of Ukraine, which said that soldiers were being sent to the front line with minimal basic training.

is there a reason for shitty training?

The rank and file of Pakistan's military might not have supported the Taliban (directly), but their intelligence wing (sort of like the KGB but more powerful) sure as hell did. Their was always popular support for various Jihadists and Taliban, but that too took a beating after one faction (I forget which) shot up a school for children of military officers a decade back. Of course, now everyone is even more uncomfortable since the Pakistani branch of the Taliban are drumming up support for secession, along with the Balochistani that have been repressed since forever.
>>55318409
America is still helping the Pakis and announced they'll be selling f-16s to them recently. At this point its institutional, I think. JFK/Johnson decided to retardedly antagonize India by covertly supplying munitions to Pakistan during one of their pointless wars in the 60s, and every president has continued their support ever since.

the rifles will mostly be fine. once theyre that rusty, they will get rusty again easier than before, so they will require more maintenance.

>Since the barrels are chrome lined that will probably mean that the barrel is the only part of the rifle that is not rusty

Those guns were stored in the 70's, not oiled, not vacuum sealed or anything, and kept in humid conditions.

There's a 0% chance the chrome lining in the barrel is still intact. Over the literal decades, cracks will have formed in the lining and rust has settled in.

Of course, not as bad as if those guns had been shot all the time and then rusted for a few years, but decades in bad environment is still a major problem.

Something acidic and a good scrubeing can remove the rust. Spraying it with WD40 can postpone future rust.

Cool.
Is Bulgartia gonna solve their vatnik problem so they can actually receive their original order at last?
How about fixing their vatnik problem that prevented them from receiving secondhand F-18s for basically free 20 years ago?
Or maybe their vatnik problem that necessitates putting Bulgarian soldiers into an "international" batallion because Bulgarian soldiers might be skilled and loyal, but Bulgarian high command is owned by Putin?

I started reading One Soldier's War this week, which is a memoir about the Chechen Wars that I highly recommend. Those conflicts were brutal beyond belief, and it seems that Russia fixed almost none of the problems that it had 25-30 years ago.

Also, the Chechen battle hobbits of the 1990s would absolutely eat these Instagram LARP "Chechen SF" queers' lunches. At the beginning of this conflict I expected decent performance from Russia, on account of that's what NATO taught me to believe, but the one thing that was incredibly glaring to me was their heavy PR campaign around their Chechen troops. Massive cringe desu.

Even better are the ammo boomers with a booth 4 or 5 tables wide filled with various obscure ammo of all types. None of it will be priced. You will then pick up a PPU in the older blue box with obvious wear and tear from years of being lugged to gun shows. You can get this for $20-30 online most days unless PPU is between batches. You will ask how much and the boomer will respond anywhere between $50-90. You then laugh and turn 360 degrees and walk away.

Gunshow boomers also have massive boners for pricing .410 and .32 at least 5x market price. I don't think I've seen a box of .32 below $40-50 at a show in a while. Boomer .410 birdshot hoarding is also impressive.

>>55321467
Ive had some pretty good experiences at my gunshows here though. While yes ive seen plenty of what youre saying and more, i've also found a solid amount of hidden gems and agreeable boomers to warrant going back every time.

Some notable stuff includes boomers willing to haggle down some rifles by $100 on 2 occasions, an entire can of nazi marked 8x56 for $5 a box (ill never run out of m95 enblocs cause of that day) lots of federal and lake city .30 cal for $15 a box. A coded non RC K98k for $600 and lots of general allowing me to bulk buy stuff at discount.
Also a boomer threw this bayonet >>55326566
for my martini in for free cause he enjoyed a conversation with a young collector.

Overall, yes gunshows are a pit of boomers gouging and that fucking loud ass taser sound, but its definitely fun hunting down the good deal here and there

Probably not wrong, but they're not wrong either.

I went to school with a woman that was in the military.
Her MOS is uncertain, but I doubt it was actually anything combat.
We had a group project which was a final and having her in our group was an absolute shit show.
She wouldn't attend meetings on time if at all, and once there she derailed us all the time. Wanting to change our methods or our topic pretty much every week while she contributed very little other than fucking up our progress in each meeting.

Eventually our group had enough of her fucking shit and got her ejected.
She ended up doing a final group project on her own in the last few weeks of the semester.

On the second to last day of the presentations she was supposed to present when suddenly her USB drive 'malfunctioned' and had no other backup with her.

The following class meeting she finally went and it was 100% a plagiarized project from someone else in the class but she threw in pictures of soldiers and really hammed up her prior service to the instructor that simped for boot dick.

In physical roles it's a waiting game, they all get injured and disappear one by one if you make them keep up pace with the men. Unfortunately that only happens to the good ones that give it their best shot. The lazy ones that get their hooks into some orbiter can really stick around for a long time slowing everyone down while the orbiter picks up the slack. Those ones are the worst because they still somehow retain their power fantasies and arrogance despite being the last one everyone's always waiting on. The dykes that become military truck drivers or something are kind of alright, even though the "male persona" they put on with the shaved hair, cursing like a sailor and overall acting like a stereotypical redneck man is funny.

The girls that went for office duty from the start, photographers etc. were nice, level-headed and not delusional about their capabilities. Even this incredible tiny tomboy that had a background in sports and could keep up pace and pull her weight in places where girls twice her size petered out, eventually went for office duty. I liked her.
Those were the young conscripts. Older woman officers seemed alright.

I've heard similar things from FDF guys. I think the IDF made some study about it and it found out the same thing, that in combat units you can't have women mixed with men, because it distracts the men. Playing hero etc.

Maybe it would work with gays and women?
>>
>>55315960
From what I've seen, it's a violently mixed bag.
Are there woman who are effective in the armed forces, and demonstrate the capabilities and aptitudes that make them equal to their male counterparts? Absolutely.
However, for everyone of those Mary Sue, are there a thousand more base bunnies who are little more then diversity hires brought in to say that the army is more diverse? Also yes.
Overall I think it's a bad idea.
