Thinking of trading a guy an AK for one. Finding them all over price wise.
Would you say it's more of a Sub-compact then? I've never held or seen one in person.
Why only in full size? Is there a big difference or is it more along the lines of "Real 1911s only come in .45"?
The Blackknight Transformer will be the first military aircraft in a long time that enlisted personnel will be allowed to fly. Its similar to the mall toys called quadrotors.
I wonder why that is.
The Black Knight has eight boxer-configuration four-cylinder gasoline engines with seven-foot, two-blade rotors that connect to the body of the helo via A-arms. The engines drive the rotors directly, with no conventional helicopter transmission, swash plate, or tail rotor. To remain stable, Black Knight uses differential thrust between opposing sets of prop-rotors controlled through Advanced Tactics' proprietary stability control software.
"It takes away the mechanical complexity of a helicopter and moves that complexity into the software," Jehangir says. "All the stability and control is done via high-speed computerized feedback."
The engine-rotor combos connect to a boxy fuselage on wheels, which houses a gasoline-powered automotive drivetrain complete with transmission, steering, and brakes. When the Black Knight transforms into drive mode, its engines and rotors fold up against the fuselage to yield an 8.5-foot-wide ground vehicle. Interior cargo volume is on par with the Army's UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. And, Jehangir says, "you could fit at least three or four of these under the rotor diameter of a Black Hawk."

You'll have to be a warrant officer at least, Same as helicopters.
The army has no reason to just start handing out expensive new tech to semi-literate idiots.
can we get a fucking arms and armor thread going?
mail or elements of plate?
tachi on horseback or foot? difference between kilij and karabela? show me some shit bitches
This kilic's a beaut, blade might be indian though??
I'm sceptical. Iran maybe? Definitely a lot younger than ancient.
/k/ I am seriously considering getting one these fine rifles. The ammo looks to be a tad expensive but that does not bother me too much. What would be a fair price for one these? I see anywhere from $350-800. It looks like a lot of them are priced 500-600 but that is online. Obviously I'm going to be looking for something in better condition. Anything I should watch out for other than the usual tom fuckery with the people selling these guns?
Assuming you traveled back in time to the 1400's, would a recoiless rifle be the easiest bang/buck weapon to make with available materials for siege-work? The launcher is just some strong sheet metal and the round is just a warhead on top of a casing full of holes and propellant?
Sharps Rifle with falling block action and percussion caps. Shooting nitrated paper cartridges.
This is the best you could do with Renaissance material science and industry.
An entire Army with breech loading rifles, could allow any European power to take over all of Europe. Since they will be facing matchlocks, pikes, and halberds.
/ k/ what's your favorite rifle?
Why isn't everything in the US Navy, bigger than or equal to a destroy, nuclear powered by now?
Are the gains in speed, endurance, and space for other things, not worth?
I'm not very well versed in US law, and i was reading through some gun grabber's shit, and they proposed a ban on ammo instead of a ban on guns.
Now, the 2nd amendment specifically protects the right to bear arms, but what protects the right to ammo?
Could they possibly pass such restrictions?
If so, what can we do to stop it?
DC vs Heller has already largely addressed this. Long story short, the 2nd amendment guarantees your right to a firearm and at least one type of ammunition required to operate it for self defense.
Why don't we have bipedal vehicles in real life yet?
>blow off legs
>it becomes immobile
there isnt really a point to it unless you can armor it up really well and have some active countermeasures
Id see armored suits like powered armor rather than large mecha or bipedal tank things being used
Hey there /k/.
I'm a normal homeowner, and don't really frequent this board often. I believe in home defense, and luckily so does the state I live in.
Texas introduced a law some time ago that presumes deadly force used within your home was justified, which is great. But outlying property such as your front lawn is not covered under this presumption.
I was watching this video:
And I realized that Bear Mace might be the solution.
It's not deadly, but would almost certainly stop multiple trespassers...

Are Electrolaser's right now still just massive things that'll never get scaled down to handgun sized? The concept sounds great compared to darted tasers if the lasers can be fired in a grid to cover a wide area, though it sounds rife for abuse by police/criminals/trolls.
