Let's try to keep this one from getting deleted by mods, all political discussion about relations in the middle east belong on /pol/. This thread is for developments in the war and military tactics & technology in use. That being said, some updates:
-US accidentally bombed Kurdish forces north of Manbij, killing close to 20
-ISIS launched an assault on a military base south of Dumayr
-SAA is supposedly only ~5km from the Tabqa airport.
-ISIS regained a few villages back from the SDF/YPG but Manbij remains surrounded and Arima remains in SDF hands

Why do Chinese soldiers always look so un-intimidaing in photos? The only guy that looks like he's older than 16 here is the second guy from the left. Knowing China's one-child little emperor syndrome, these so called "solders" have no resolve or warrior spirit and would probably run away at the first sight of adversity to run home to their mommies and daddies and their the safety of their bedrooms where they can cower in front of their PCs and go back to playing their Chinese MMOs or whatever.

It's really that time again Mr.Freeman
Hai there, sharp shots!!!
Make sure you're aiming true and spreading the joy of shooting ;-D
I need more Finnish and Estonian girls in my folder
No recent acquisitions thread?? How about this: Smith and wesson model 13-2 pinned and recessed, 300 otd.
Nice. I really want a used S&W, but I'm at the mercy of the used market here in CA for the most part, since importing is retarded.
Picking up a charter arms off duty today though, so at least I can live out some of my shitty crime noir fantasies.
Got one of those too, it was my test bed for birchwood Casey bluing. It's a neat gun but the double action is poopoo
> pro tip
If you are going to shoot 357 make sure it's 145 grain and above. Lighter weight magnums will erode and crack the forcing cone. Always be sure to clean the 6'oclock area of the cone vigorously

Battle Rifle General: Lewd Edition
Morning, big rifle guys.
This bregg is for the discussion of everyone's favorite Cold War relics (also the SCAR) and anything pertaining to them, including, but not limited to:
Insinuations about Anon's Annual Income
and the Weaver Qwik-Point Sight
Shitposting is recognized as inevitable, but discouraged nonetheless.
I just got this yesterday, what optics would be decent for 300-500 Yards?
I can do that. About as simple as simple gets.
She's not a smart dog but she likes to kill shit and cuddle.
Not really useful in battle, but he's remarkably easy to fit into a magazine pouch.
So /k/, How good do you think the Estonian army?
as a Finn, I like and respect the military of our "little brethren" down South. The fact that they have an active militia on top is also pretty badass.
The way how they've mixed old and new, Slavshit and Nato-toys, also gets my /k/ock hard.
tl;dr: 10/10, would remove Vodka with.
did I do good with my new EDC knife?
also, show yours ITT (please)
Any good recoil-compensating flash-hiders for an AK-47?
First time rifle buyer here.
Looking for US made AK variant. Please help me out, I don't wanna miss out now that our leaders have gone mental.
What is the role of a main battery on a modern frigate/destroyer/cruiser? Is it just there like how they have guns on fighter jets just in case?
Pretty sure they can engage all forms of targets to shore targets, aircraft, incoming missiles, light craft, and full size enemy vessels.
Pretty good backup if missiles and other counter measures fail.
Yeah, though a 25mm autocannon isnt going to do dick-diddly-squat against anything larger than a small frigate.
Also, it isnt going to engage missiles. If counter measures fail, you arent going to have enough time to bring the gun onto target, and it isnt going to be able to hit it even if you had that time.
It probably wouldnt have the ammo type or the targeting system integration, nor the traverse speed to engage aircraft. Maybe a heli if they aim it manually.
Shit will fuck up a rubber dingy though :D
It would be pretty embarassing if they ever had to fire a cruise missile at some third world nigger's raft in self defense. It's either that or running away.
They'd both make great title in the news.
The cannon is for those niche cases
