Searching for an snow camo for Southern Bavaria.
Also general snow camo thread
What does /k/ think of the OV-10?
Pucarà is sexier
Are there any Military or Ex Military pilots here on /k/? I would like to know how you became one, and how you enjoy it. After you take the asvab and score what is required, do you get the option to choose flight school? Or do they just give you a list of things that are available? I feel like this is never clear at all. Also Im half way through college with a 2.7 gpa at the moment in mechanical engineering. Does that give me an edge?
Are you in some form of ROTC? All pilots are officers, so it's either that or OTS after college.
Especially in Air Force ROTC, engineering will get you a technical enrollment, but 2.7 GPA is not competitive, and you need at least 3 years in the program to graduate and commission immediately. Flight school slots are awarded after you receive your enrollment.
Might use this bread as an opportunity to ask a few questions.
How do you turn on an airplane/helicopter? Is it with a key like a car or a bit more complicated than that?
Same question but about tonks and infantry fighting vehicles, other armoured vehicles and so forth, a key or some switch?
hi /k/, quick question - what pistol is it?
What do you guys think of the Sig MCX?
Tell me about the Osorio. It was an MBT prototype made in Brazil. The Saudis tested it out in competition with the Abrams, Challenger and Leclerc and it beat them all. Despite this the Saudis bought the Abrams and the Osorio never went into production.
Why? Political shenanigans?
I'd say trials are more accurate than combat. The others may well have done just as well or better than the Abrams in the same situation. So much depends on crew training, logistics, the enemy. A competition is a level playing field.
>tested it out in competition with the Abrams, Challenger and Leclerc
AMX-40 and certainly not the Leclerc.
The Osorio used a lot of foreign-designed components ; French sights, German powerpack, British running gear, definitely not so Brazilian.
One of my dreams is to acquire demilled receivers, deactivated weapons, and guns that have been turned into "art" like pic related, melt them down, and make new guns out of them. I realize that you need specialized equipment to recycle steel. What would be the best way, if any, to start a small time operation turning scrap into workable sheets and bars?
People have made steel furnaces at home. Doesn't look terribly hard.
If people can melt steel at home then I am confident that I can learn metallurgy, forging and gunsmithing.
In the past hour the UK and the US have said that the Russian airliner was probably downed by a bomb on board, making this the biggest terror attack since 9/11.
What kind of response will we see judging by their reactions to Chechen terror attacks in the past? They're already dropping some crazy shit like pic related, how might they step it up from here?
>1500kg laser guided conventional bomb
No, no really, what?
That's not even something to raise an eye about. The US drops similar bombs all the time and no one bats an eye.
Anyway, expect the exact same thing to happen that happened the last time Putin false flagged something to get into power.
Thinking about trading my USP for this guys PTR.. Given that it's an actual PTR 91. His listing says century arms but I only know them to make the c308 and CETME rifles. It seems to have the HK style rear sight, but how can I tell it's an actual PTR?
I've had a shitty day and nothing makes me happier than Soviet engineering so can we get one of these going?
Bought my first nugget on Monday!
What should I do with it? What slings work best? What ammo is recommended?
what kind of quality would bushmaster be considered? im looking at their 16" heavy barrel dissapator for a m16a1 model 605 variant build im starting are there other barrels that are the same as this one but better quality?
HOLY SHIT U GUYZ!
I HAZ SERRIUS QUESTION!!!!
WHATS A BARREL SHROUD??
hey guys post your shooters and the snacks you eat while doing the shoots
Let's try this again.
Last thread was to early to get any traction and I know it's still early, but it'll be more organized if we start now. If the guy who hosted it last year is still here and wants to do it that would be great, otherwise I could host it. Just need to know what's going on.
Figured we'd do it similar to last year where you submit your price ceiling and what you want and you're matched with with two people (someone sending to you and you sending to someone) that are in the same price range. You'll be given your matches...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Unless you have a VERY clear idea of how this works and previous history of not being a shit just mail the metallurgist about if he's up for it again and if he isn't make an official passing of the torch.
about as retro as I'll go.
