Mystery /k/ related box thread. Shall I open it?
That sure is a nice ground attack aircraft you have, it would be a shame if something were to... happen to it.
What are you doing over here alone?
Why didn't the Chinese just use AK-47s in Korea? They would have easily steamrolled the UN forces
want your opinions on the Sig P938 SAS, any experiences with the gun or how you choose to carry it or just any information in general
What is the best military attack helicopter and why ?
Seems like the tiger is overpriced.
It really comes down to engine and weapons design
and Europe laggs behind the US and Russia in both, really i cant think of any rreasons to take an Tiger over an Apache
As far as best, Mi-28, Ka-50 or Apache
What are your thoughts on this weapon, or even the 6.5 creedmore cartridge. I'm new to bolt rifles and hear this gun brought up constantly. Was curious as to what /k/ thought.
Hey guys, lets discuss the pros and cons of the Eurofighter.
Also (& mainly), this is a reminder that Eurofighter Typhoon (pc game) is for free at Indiegala... get to the homepage, scroll down a bit and you will find it, just follow the steps to get it for free.
remember that even though you are a cynic, you are not always right. Im juts a regular /k/ browser, that wants to share the love, just the same way someone at some point gave away insurgency for free. Im part of the /k/ommando group in steam and just wanted to give something back.
Tl;dr: Fuck yourselves/yourself.
French anon here, I need your advice /k/;
SKS or MAS 49?
Why should I buy an SKS over a MAS 49?
How is 5.56 considered grossly inadequate and inhumane for hunting deer, and yet is simultaneously heralded as a good intermediate cartridge designed for warfare (i.e. killing humans)?
I mean after all humans are a larger "big game" animal than a deer is, so what's up with this contradictory standard?
Can't have it both ways baka.
so my country croatia is getting 16 of these...are they any good?
Congrats, you've received one of the best helicopters out there. It will turn all your pilots into madmen.
Anyone got that video of the Kiowa chasing down the Haji on the bike and the Copilot leaning out to fire their M4 at them?
More than a few people that I consider to be reliable sources have given me first-hand accounts of them witnessing both the pilot and co-pilot blasting shit with their rifles at the same time.
Croatia, you don't know what horrendous powers you're about to unleash on your poor fighting men.
Do you really think people can get PTSD from piloting a drone?
Some people can get extremely upset if they know they've taken lives.
There's many stories of ww2 bomber crewmen weeping over the lives they knew they'd taken.
I guess IDK how it would feel as I'm out of the mil and won't ever be in that job.
Does the 5th generation of fighters mean a return to WVR combat? How effective are BVR missiles against stealth fighters?
Does anyone know of a good technique or at least some tips on estimating distance/range (in general, not just on a shooting range) using eyes only? I'm a eurofag btw so only meter/kilometer units please.
Best way is to guess distances to objects you can check the distance to over and over. If you have a laser range finder, guess a distance and check it. This is the most efficient and effective way to hone your eyeballing range finding skill.
So Representative Elliot Engel (D-New York) is trying to add Flamethrowers to section 922(o) which will ban the transfer and posession of them.
It's called H.R. 4009 or the 'Flamethrowers? Really?' Act.
What does /k/ think of the SOCOM 16?
I'm looking into getting one for general use against any possible terror threat or civil unrest. The .308 is pretty much undisputed as a powerful caliber so lets talk rifles to fire it first.
As stated before, I like the SOCOM 16. It's a true and tested design in a nice sleek package. It's like the modern musket. However, it might not be quite on par with other battle rifles. Taking into account that it will only be fired as a semi-auto, is there a better rifle out there that comes just off the shelf?
