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?

What are some effective methods of torture? A hot coat hanger up the ass? Spike bat to nuts on a dresser?
apparently, Russian won't just save us from Muslim, but they are going to protect the Earth from Alien invasion
Imagine something like ODST, but instead of people, it send angry pythons
Okay, then instead of pythons or ODST, practitioners of the Wu-tang martial arts?
I'm at NMUSAF right now
If you want a picture of an aircraft in the collection,post here
How do you even shoot down hypersonic planes? Scramjets theoretically work up to mach 40, nearly twice the velocity needed to attain orbit, you'd need a fucking falcon 9 sized sam to get that kind of velocity and altitude! Inb4 "le antiaircraft lasers)
I Mean even a sabre engine can get up to mach 6 ish, and cruise at mach 2-4, and the sr71 managed to evade Sams by going mach 3ish (there was something like 117 missles launched with no hits)

Can I use a dishwasher to clean my guns? What about ceramic ballistic plates?
Is this a legit way to hold / carry a pistol if shit ever went down. I don't really see any practical value to this.
What is with all the fucking autistic retards today?
>durr is it ok to hold a gun like this
Wow, maybe a situation arises where there is something in front of you at chest level, so you don't want your gun pointing down at it
>but muh sol position
Its almost like, you adapt to the situation you are in or something
New thread, old one is almost gone.
I was thinking about all those people who homemake shotguns from plumbing tubing.
1) the highest proof pressure for the average shotgun would be 14,000 psi,
2) a 12gauge shotgun roughly translates to roughly 3/4 inch in diameter
3) Burst pressure should be considered as the applicable pressure with regards to shooting shotguns shells out of plumbing pipes
Is it safe to say that only double extra strong wrought steel pipe should be used for homemade shotguns?
What are the long term effects of not tumbling my spent cases before reloading?
Is there a more cost efficient way of tumbling spent brass than buying a 70 dollar tumbler?
Speaking of shotgun barrels...
When a shotgun gets proofed, does the proofing only apply to the action area of the barrel (red area), or the whole barrel (red+blue area)
I ask because if I saw off one shotgun, can I use the sawed off to make a new shotgun?
Can someone tell me the name of the missile in this picture and who is in control of it? is it isis?
