Post depressing military pictures here, /k/omrades.
gonna dump some
My old roommate is in that pic, middle rear kneeling next to the guy with the helmet.
Whole damn Chechen conflict really
Don't know the source for it. Don't know if it's real or fabricated. Any info?
PTSD: The Video
Not my pic, but two blurred faces went Special Forces, KIA is pretty fucking obvious what that means, MVA= motor vehicle accident, PCS = permanent change of station i.e. he was assigned to different base Detcord is nickname the OP of the picture and made all the annotations, 12B = army infantry AD=active duty
Dry weather, i think. No one likes dry skin/lips.
I ain't even mad. I did fool around with a few guys during my conscription.
12B is a Combat Engineer. This was a post on reddit. Detcord12B is the name of the guy who posted it, cause it was his photo.
The guy who they thought was homeless actually got home. The guy confirmed it.
Otherwise, everything else...yeah. No more info on the female medics. The two guys who went SOF did it a year after the photo was taken, so he blurred them out cause they're still doing shit.
Yeah I got that pic from imgur linked through a military subreddit, Glad to know one guy made it home. Still sucks about the rest.
RAF attend funeral of a Luftwaffe crew in England. Practice done since WWI as a sign of respect towards enemy pilots.
RAF airman buried with military honors by occupying German soldiers, Channel Islands 1943
Dress blues. Mine are hanging up in a closet.
A funeral for a Japanese pilot killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 1941
Same stuff happed with the Red Barron. British gave him full military honours.
Doesn't matter you race, creed or ideology. They served and mad the ultimate sacrifice all of them have pledge to take. Just look at the black guy, he doesn't give a shit its a nazi.
The air war side always tried to have some honor and chivalry, at least early on in WWI and at the outset of WWII. There are some rare examples of it later on, but by the jet age that died out.
This is probably the most famous example from WWII.
I don't think it's wrong to correct someone politely if they don't know better. I'm sure I've been accused of being too lenient with boots. But if someone has been in long enough to know better, they would need to watch the fuck out.
USMC Colonel Francis Fenton conducting the funeral of his son Pfc Mike Fenton, near Shuri, Okinawa, Japan, May 1945.
You're forgetting the fact that they were the same race , religion and the creed was similar.
Finnish soldiers prepare the body of a dead comerade for tranportation back to his home parish for burial, Continuation War.
Initial rollout of the FROG kit. Marines wanted a flame retardant uniform due to the threat of IEDs so they used flight suits until they could start issuing the Flame Resistant Combat Shirt and Pants we see today
Hitler you moron send supplies I'm about to take the Suez and you no give me food and meds ?
We'll loose because of mistakes like this !
>implying Rommel wasn't a shit commander
>implying Rommel didn't know how to supply his army
>implying Hitler trusted Rommel, militarily, with more than a few thousand soldiers in a campaign he didn't care about
Forced out of the cellar they were hiding in, Jewish resistance fighters await their fate next to their German captors during the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, 1943.
Is there a way to save file with original file name without ctrl+c&v ?
Captcha : carry regthts
Not sure, since none of the original file names are visible to me, but here's a higher quality pic.
Sherman driver Julian H. Patrick from Kentucky, killed by a round from a German tank in Cologne, Germany 1945.
Wounded Finnish sailor grasps his comerade's hand onboard the Finnish navy gunboat Uusimaa.
Dead american soldier on a pontoon bridge in Germany, 1945.
I feel really bad for the guy on the left. He clearly just needed a signature for something but he came across this shit. Bet that felt awkward as fuck, probably didn't get his shit signed either because he'd have been beaten to death by the others for interrupting their "muh feelings bro brah bruh" moment.
"The prospect of victory by either side appalled us. How was it that among so man victims, no men were to be found brave enough to rush across from either 'enemy' side and hail one another as brothers? In asking each other that question we experienced a new despair"
War against war /k/omrades. I don't want to ever have to fight against one of you.
>pol leaks that moot's (now) ex gf is a whore who wants to sleep with multiple men other than moot after he spent thousands on her travel expenses
>gets buttmad and breaks /pol/
I'd say pol won in the long run, MOOT had a good reputation up until gamergate/cuckception.
/pol/ was meant to be a 'containment' board, but it grew to be the 2nd largest board (which I doubt moot expected when he allowed it)
And you'll still die ugly one day.
If no one fought for anything, the world could be uglier than any battle. Whatever group decided to use force would reign.
Better to legitimize force in civilised law, because we are human after all.
Not really a pacifist by any stretch, but the use of force is so easily used for all the wrong reasons. I believe using force for plenty of things. I feel like the context for a lot of these images is force being used foolishly and wastefully. We all die, but we don't have to die like dogs, used up for nothing. Good men spent on nothing.
It's easy to paint it as wasteful. But it's all about perspective. Do you have any idea how many people died since we started this conversation? Nearly two per second. And it's never entirely pleasant.
Dying at the side of your brothers you fought with is not the worst thing. If you were there as part of that team, the circumstances hardly matter, and didn't do your part, where would that have left them?
Wow, good eye anon. The color of his glove matches the other ones a lot closer in the second pic, so I'm gonna say they're both restorations but the second pic is a better one. I'm just pulling that out my ass though.
> tfw you will never rampage through a sandbox in a HMMWV with 3 Texans hunting Taliban.
> tfw you will never relay to command through a man wearing a Budweiser cap
> ftw you will never yell like a cowboy while dropping hajji like hogs
> ftw you will never shrug off RPGs while Cleetus returns fire on the Mark 19
Life is suffering.
>tfw when you will never gets ptsd or mutilated by rocket.
>tfw you will never see your best friends without his legs
>tfw you are happy with your wife but you dont know it
>implying you know shit
>>implying Rommel wasn't a shit commander
Just a quick glance at his service history would give you the answer.
>>implying Rommel didn't know how to supply his army
It was his fault because Italians responsible for the supply kept getting their shit sunk?
>>implying Hitler trusted Rommel, militarily, with more than a few thousand soldiers in a campaign he didn't care about
Afrika Korps was a, get this, corps sized unit, thus we're talking tens of thousands of men and several divisions. While he commanded units outside the afrika korps as well.
You are the revisionist
The second one wasn't all that bad, actually.
I have to admit, that is extremely admirable that they would do this despite the cowardly, low-brow attack on Pearl Harbor. They had some real discipline not to just dump the corpse into the ocean to be fish food. That is worthy of great respect.
i was not ready for that, jesus that guy who is in shock.
This Hungarian soldier has seen a lot of things he didn't want to see.
>cowardly, low-brow attack on Pearl Harbor
Oh fuck off already yankee scum. America WANTED war with Japan and the embargoes against Japan ensured that the Japanese HAD NO FUCKING CHOICE.
You're not serious are you?
Japan fucking killed 500,000 in China so we stopped giving them oil. That's asking for war?
(For all your faggot half asked conspiracy theories and hate of America)
Being deprived oil does not warrant demonic war crimes and inhumanity cruelty. Japs must burn in hell or repent.
>awaiting the day China conquers, or just decides to level the fucking place.
What kind of household raises these kids?
Not all feels are created alike
>Hey America, I just committed one of the worst atrocities in history, but we're still cool, right?
>Nah, Japan, you're fucking loony. Get out of my store.
>FUCK YOU AMERICA! I BANZAI YOUR WHOLE FAMILY
One word: Malta. Hitler himself scrapped plan to take island, that was main rally point for attacks on Axis convoys, and could do exactly same things to British convoys if taken,
Auto trans fluid is commonly red, but is often light brown. Synthetic manual trans oil and diff/ transfer case oil is similar, light gold-ish brown.
Coolant varies a lot. BMW, Mercedes, and Volvo are dark blue. Audi/VW, Porsche, and Toyota are bright red, almost pink. Most US makes and the old Mercedes stuff are almost clear, with a yellow tint. The bright green stuff is usually a generic coolant that no manufacturer uses in a factory fill. That's the cheap shit they sell at auto parts stores.
Power steering fluid is often Dextron type ATF, which is red, or a light green synthetic hydraulic oil, or a clear mineral based hydraulic oil.
Treaty of Versailles said Germany had to destroy ANYTHING military.
Pic related, those would have been good helmets for motorcyclists or cooking pots, not anymore
Could a large aircraft been a benefit in building a postwar airline? Who cares? Treaty of Versailles says smash that shit
"Tanks" a lot France and Great Britian, because you made us destroy our tanks, we'll make better ones next time
The beginning conversation is between a Chechen telling a Russian commander that it's not too late to pull back, and there is no way either of them will win. He goes on to say that he will show the Russian no mercy if he sees him in combat, and that he expects the same of the Russian.
At 2:59 the Russian on the radio is saying his squad is pinned down by heavy fire, and most of the men in his squad have been killed. He's asking for reinforcements.
Japan had a choice, that choice was to withdraw from Manchuria, and not make aggressive war.
The USA had great relations with China circa 1936, it is only natural we would try to use our soft power to influence Japan into giving up their invasion.
It's a pic of the Dachau Massacre.
On liberating Dachau some GI's were so infuriated by what they found that they started wasting the surrendered camp guards.
Some in the pic are dead, some are not.
Right after I read the stupid post you just made I looked at that picture and saw the two guys frozen to death in a hole.
You are a fucking piece of shit. Honestly, i'm fucking tired of some of you /pol/ faggots in here. You are no better than a self righteous progressive cunt. When you say shit like that you sound so fucking depressed or dark inside, why haven't you killed yourself if you know everything is "ran by jews" and its all a "lie"? Whats the point of living if you're not going anywhere in life because of those reasons. Please give us the livestream of you killing your self because I have no sympathy for you if you can't have respect for anything in life weather its "ran by jews" or not.
He fucking didn't. You don't even know what country they were fighting for. I thought stormfront was all about fighting for "Le' homeland". That's what most of these soldiers did. Americans, Japs, Germans, British, Russians..EVERYONE WAS LITTERLY FIGHTING FOR THEIR SURVIVAL AND HOMELAND DURING WW1-WW2. THOSE WARS WERE NOT PROXY OR INSURGENCIES. FUCK YOU AND LEAVE THIS FUCKING BOARD IF YOU DISAGREE WITH SOLDIERS FIGHTING IN WARS CUNT.
Because it's funny when people get all weepy over people who are stupid enough to throw away their life for the ambitions of the political class.
That is especially true with the more recent US wars. It's not depressing to see those dumb animals die, it's a relief so we don't have to foot their medical bills until they off themselves from PTSD.
for some reason this one gets me errytime
Exactly. This is a weapons board, not a militarism worship board. There is nothing here that pertains to weaponry or military technology.
But feel free to post pictures from wars that are actually justified. Post some Finnish soldiers from the Winter War. I can feel that. US soldiers in OEF/OIF? Good riddance.
If you don't like "militarism worship" you can leave this thread at any time.
Please read the board description
>Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology
Military culture and militarism is not military technology. It's not my fault you dumb faggots can't read.
It is admirable in part with the fact that a great deal of those pilots that died would have been veteran pilots. People with some skill and experience.
Too bad Japan (for their sake) didn't retire veteran pilots to train the new recruits like the Americans did.
don't have a picture but when I was in afghanistan some dumb kid/afghani fuckmeat got stuck in a cement mixer (whilst trying to break into the base to get fucked) and drowned in concrete, and nobody noticed until the truck had mixed it for a good hour and made a mess of what remained of his body as a bunch of boots tried to pour a freedom foundation that was going to be a school or something. In the end his pulled out, but because we didn't want to dump all the cement they still poured/cured it with his blood and some guts in it while his actual body was buried at some local farmstead or something
>IM HIT FUCK MAN IM FUCKING HIT FUCK MAN FUCK FUCK OH GOD HELP ME
>IM HERE WHERE YOU HIT?
>FUCK MAN FUCK I DONT KNOW I CANT FEEL MY LEGS, OH FUCK, FUCK ME
>YOU'RE HIT IN THE ARM, YOU'LL BE OK
COME ON LETS GO
>MY LEGS MAN I CANT FEEL THEM OH GOD IN HEAVEN MY LEGS
>YOU'RE HIT IN YOUR GODDAMN ARM YOU FAGGOT, IT PASSED RIGHT THRU, GET THE FUCK UP WE HAVE TO GET TO COVER
Not all their videos are military, but goddamn are good. Haven't found story telling like this
