Purpose for doing so can vary, but the intent isn't relevant to the ban. 2. spoiler porn and gore 3. do not post personal, identifying information. if you are posting pictures of places you've been and shit you own, remove EXIF data, metadata, check for reflections, etc. better yet- don't post your own shit! 4. offtopic discussions should not be carried over between threads. if you find some riveting thing you'd love to talk about that isn't relevant to the board's topic, make a thread on a more specialized board and link it with a post. >what is offtopic? Offtopic means not directly or indirectly related to weaponry, outdoorsmanship, and general survivalism or the territories or circumstances they are employed in. >this is vague This is intentional. As long as someone can reasonably demonstrate how a topic is relevant to the board's topic, it should stay. 5.

Are new M2 machine guns still being produced, or the more than 2 million from ww2 are more than enough? And if new ones are still made, then who are the manufacturers? Just FN?

>>19267 As Seinfeld once said, the helmet is wearing you for protection.
>>19267 If I had to take a guess, this design is more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time as compared to a helmet that protects better, so you're trading immediate protection for longer-term protection and less helmet rashes. Honestly you'd be better off giving everyone a safety hard hat and not bothering past that.

>>19301 They could legit be communications gear. They nowadays have sunglasses that allow you to receive radio, and the voice gets transmitted to your skull through direct vibration, hence why the glasses have to be tight-fitting. I can't remember what those were called. But, ofcourse, it could be just a simple feiend-or-foe identifier for glowniggers.
>>19301 Makes it slightly harder to dox. Protects against blinding attacks and, if of sturdy enough construction, against small projectiles (that aren't bullets... though that might also be possible, armored glass is a thing). Disguises where they're looking at, so harder for a target to detect surveillance, assuming the target is retarded enough to not recognize a glow from a mile away.

>>19292 Gender studies is feminism.
>>19318 You would be hard-pressed to get the average feminist to support Camile Paglia's feminist approach since she basically says women would be happier maintaining the status quo since they have more to lose as equals than being put on a pedestal, and that Western women don't know jack shit about what's right/good for Women in other cultures. So yes it's feminism, but in the same way the yellow vest movement is libertarian.

The CBC sure has some interesting math depending on where the Liberals sit. Especially since that decimal point explicitly and unambiguously claims it's not being rounded. >>19311 You're right that vote-splitting was not really the issue. Without the PPC there may have been one or two more Conservative ridings, but not enough, and a decent chunk of people voting purple would, if it didn't exist, not have bothered voting at all rather than voting blue. But if he hadn't pandered to lefties the results would have been even worse. Let's not kid ourselves, there's no longer the political will in Canada to get a right-wing party elected. At best the choices will be between centre, left, and further-left.

>>19238 Now to be clear and upfront, I've been getting this third hand, so I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this, but the way I've been hearing it the French were the dumbasses here. The Au-Fr deal quite clearly specified an agreed upon price and that a specific portion of the labor would be performed in Australia, this was 'non-negotiable'. Then King Baguette decided to do his best Darth Vader impression and informed the Aussie Defense that the deal had been altered and the Aussies would be paying 5 times more per unit and 'you people can paint the ships after we deliver them to you', because they would be 100% built in France. Aussieland's Defense Agency's response was to quite reasonable tell the French to go fornicate with a kangaroo and they left the deal; this leading to the UK coming up with a plan (that relied on the US) and the Aussie Defense basically jumped on it. The US kind of just bumbled into it as per usual under the current laughingstock administration and was basically informed about it at the last possible moment.
>>19240 The articles I'd read had vague mentions that there had been tension and disagreement already about where the labour would be, so that makes sense. And also on the topic of that deal, it amused me to see the response from the rest of the Five Eyes who aren't included, with Canada's weak-sounding "we didn't want nuclear subs anyway!". It's completely true, and even if we did want them we can't afford them (we can't even afford the ships we DO want) but it just looks so weak as a response, especially since it makes us look scared of provoking China.
>>18809 >Granted, although one could argue for weeks if that was ideal or not. If we wanted to do that I'd just stick to the best argument of the average .45 ACP fan. >Or, to put it in another way, any new ordnance introduction must immediately precede a massive (and I mean massive) ship buying spree. How would you compare it to the Dreadnought revolution? Could a navy completely upend the game by launching a squadron of cruisers? >Yes, I'm aware I'm giving mixed answers and responses post-from-post, that is unfortunately part and parcel with the chaos that design work simply is. That's why I'm so interested in military technologies to begin with. In something like a civilian car it basically all comes down to money and regulations, but in something like a tank or a warship it's an endless series of question of life and death all impacting each other. >So long as your intended/expected engagement/defensive envelopes are covered, any mixture works. That's quite reassuring, although it makes the subject both simpler and yet more complicated at the same time. >My own personal preferences in this regard (18/16, 8in, 155mm/6in/5in, HEL) is mostly nostalgia/glorification of the past as I prefer what has terrifyingly become traditionalist design doctrines In my case it's because I dream of ˝synchronizing˝ the guns used on land and on the sea. Specifically, with the kind of defensive system they are already putting on tanks the two best bets against them are going to be hypersonic missiles and really big guns. Therefore I imagine that for the front line the best main armament for a tank (or heavy IFV) would be a 76.2mm gun with a high RoF combined with a row hypersonic missiles. But the real tank killer should be a SPG with a 21cm gun: the first vehicle would mostly just designate targets for guided 21cm shells, and its own hypersonic missiles are mostly there for self-defence. >Lasers are unfortunately deck penetrators by nature, but this means you absolutely could design them to swap out for very large autocannons... considering that the larger variants of HELs take up more room below deck than a 5in gun. Strange, I thought they just need some really thick power cables. Is it because they all kind of capacitors and cooling systems and whatnot down there?

>>19261 >How would you compare it to the Dreadnought revolution? That strongly depends on how much new tech is shoved into the cruiser to make it a noteworthy threat. If a navy launched a flight of SLRC capable of firing nuclear-tipped, precision guided, 1500 mile shells below the radar detection (be it the 12in SLRC or a modernized battleship caliber naval cannon - an Alaska/Stalingrad-style large cruiser is still a cruiser) which was capable of advanced first strike without being detected (the strike, not the ship), then I could see it being somewhat comparable to the Dreadnought crisis. Obviously, it wouldn't be quite a Dreadnoughting situation, since the old navy wouldn't be quite obsolete; but it would probably immediately spark a 'massive' naval arms race (for this century's scaling, it'd be nothing to the 1920s/30s) and could actually see naval treaties return. >Tanks When it comes to tanks, really, all you absolutely need to do to cause a mission kill is to poke a hole into the crew compartment. To that extent, extant 120-140mm tank cannons would defeat anything up to heavy CNT-based composites, no reason to pull out the heavy artillery and hypersonics yet. >Strange, I thought they just need some really thick power cables. Is it because they all kind of capacitors and cooling systems and whatnot down there? The LPU (Line Production Units) and PSUs for HELs are not individually huge, but to get appreciable power out of them you need a lot of these combined units all working together in an array. To illustrate, to get a 30 megawatt laser, you need two thousand LPUs, with enough leeway to allow all of those cables to get to the laser condenser at the 'turret' head. That's enough required volume to fill a Cruiser's main turret with some excess. Incidentally, that's one of the primary reasons why the 'Lasers will bring back the Battleship' argument is actually valid. To get sufficient power to have noteworthy effect at range, you end up with absolutely massive arrays. >And one more thing: are there combined gas/steam turbines for nuclear-powered ships? I mean that they normally run on steam, but if need to be they can switch to burning diesel with just the press of a button. The closest to this is the Kirovs' Nuclear propulsion with Oil-fired Superheater. Nuclear cruise (~18kt), Oil flank (30kt). With the right gearing set up, however, there is no reason why they couldn't have a dual nuclear-diesel propulsion system. I cannot for the life of me think of a legitimate reason why they would want such a thing, but it's certainly possible.

Mobility in modular plate carrier systems Strelok 09/16/2021 (Thu) 22:50:06 No.19218 [Reply]
Does anyone have personal experience with modular systems that accept groin protection, and arm/shoulder plates? What is the impact you suffer to mobility? Are you capable of performing a full sprint at a decent speed? Bounding maneuvers, etcetera? How is prolonged movement done at a walking pace? Thank you in advance.

>>19239 i shit in your mouth
>>19239 Not every thread has to go in a general. Generals kill imageboards.
>>19218 Arm and shoulder plates turn an already heavy and bulky piece of equipment into a knee destroying monstrosity. It's already a pain in the ass as-is getting a good cheek weld with a plate carrier- adding even more bulk is going to fuck with your marksmanship. Most of your questions are more relevant to personal fitness than your choice of armor. Just assume armor in any form turns mundane tasks strenuous, and strenuous tasks exhausting.
>>19218 The interceptor vest with the neck yoke and nut flap was hot and heavy but not that bad. I liked the all around impact protection compared to a plate carrier, even without the extra plates and panels. You could take a beating and not even notice. Even so, no one attached the extra parts in a training environment unless specifically told to. The neck bits were really good at catching hot brass too.
