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.

Fucking phonefag. Learn how to resize your shit retard.

Let's say an Abrams tank gets hit by a projectile on its front armour. The round does not penetrate, and the vehicle is otherwise undamaged. How does the crew go about repairing it? Does the entire turret need to be replaced or can segments be removed and replaced?
Same question with ERA blocks, does the hull underneath need an inspection or can you just slap a fresh block in place of the old one?

That's actually a pretty high density of launchers when you consider size of the country and the fact it doesn't need to worry about attacks from NATO airspace on its western border. Ukraine actually has a pretty strong air defense when you think about it like that.

It’s not achieving anything other than increasing the casualty rate for their air force.
You cannot leave your enemies air force intact, their massive air defence network fully operational, have zero infantry support against Manpad teams and then expect to fly successful sorties with dumb bombs.
Russian WW2 fanboy culture makes these idiots operate in the 1940s, not the 2020s.

>On one occasion a Russian S-300 missile complex detected his TB2 near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. “I saw the missile launch and explosion nearby and lost contact. We were upset because we thought we lost the drone.” A few hours later the TB2 made a miraculous return, performing an automatic landing at their airfield. “We saw he was completely punctured with holes but he made it,” Odessa said. “After this he was restored and did a lot more good work.”

>In another instance a Russian warplane hit one of the drones with an air-to-air missile. It kept flying, but Odesa couldn’t understand the readings and had to abort the mission. Even so, the drone was able to return to base, albeit with enormous damage. “The quality of the drone is impressive. Almost all flight systems are duplicated, so the back-up systems can return it even with significant damage.”

Cyber warfare is incredibly important. The FSB agents on /k/ have convinced me -- an American -- that Russia defeated Ukraine. They then went on to steamroll all of Europe. One army group then broke off and took all of Africa, while another took China, North Korea, South Korea, Japan, and the rest of Asia and Australia. The rest of their forces came down through Canada through a US whose military wouldn't fight for Sleepy Joe Brandon, then took all of Central and South America.
So Putin rules all the world.

My believing this means Putin now actually rules the world.... I think. Or something. I don't know, I'm just an American sitting here in my underwear.
But I'm sure it's important or they wouldn't be doing it, right?

Alrighty /k/ here’s the situation, you’re in charge of the colonial militia/army on an earth like planet colony. Your troop numbers range anywhere between 2000-10,000. But you got a grand total of human staff/workers of 100,000. You got air power and some armor. But no artillery or sea power.

Reinforcements take anywhere from 4-6 years to arrive, but you got limited degree of unmanned drones and armor. You have have the raw materials on this planet to build more weapons and ammo.

The indigenous blue monkeys outnumber you 30:1. They're 1800s tier Indians because of hippy defectors that sold them some weapons/built them weapons. Some tribes are cool with you, while majority attack on sight.

Now what is your grand plan of salvaging this planet for the human expansion?

The RDA guy mentioned the site they wanted was the largest concentration of unobtainium within X kilometers. So there's a larger concentration that distance away. I go there instead, and in the meantime, find which tribes ARE interested in collaboration and make a lot of generous gifts to them.

Go full vietcon. Don't let the Navi use their hight to their advances. Dig a series of underground bases that can only be accessed via service tunnels that can only fit a human. Dig in for a couple of months. From there do hit and run attacks. Deploy Avatars as suicide bombers to kill off Navi leadership. Engage in a propaganda war and let the savages destroy themselves from the inside out.

I think you could probably wipe out all of them if you established air superiority with your drones and then just kept making shitty little hellfire ripoffs to plink them off from beyond small arms range.

The only real risk when would be that they get air superiority or at least air parity from those flying animals they have, or they just zerg rush the base before operation drone can really start.

So the first step would be building earthworks, barbed wire and machine gun/artillery emplacements so that they'll get shredded if they try to yolorush the lines. After that, use fighters to kill any enemy fixed wing, then exterminate what's left with drones.

Don't feel too bad man. I had a similarly embarrassing moment when I asked if a cross patch (intended for a chaplain by the looks of it) would be a war crime for a combatant to wear at my local milsurp store. He looked at me kinda weird and I said that I was thinking of volunteering in Ukraine, which made him stare a bit harder at me. I didn't end up doing that, so I always feel very self-conscious when I go back in there.
I was gonna volunteer too, but I looked up the nearest Ukrainian embassy in the US and saw it was way too far for me to visit, so I couldn't be bothered anymore. At the least I know that they're not really taking any more untrained foreign combatants since the reddit brigade doxxed themselves and got blown up.
Anyways yeah, you might die or get thrown in prison to be fed corn syrup. You should get a black gf so you can rephrase your previous comment as defending yourself and her if a race riot happened. Or just say fuck it and go innawoods.
