The last thread was left in Syria
> What's this thread about?
As usual this thread is for the discussion and pics of tracked and wheeled AFVs of all kinds from MBTs to supertanks to self propelled AA guns. Please keep it civil and cite sources for statistics.
No sooner had the BMP-1P been rolled out than the GBTU commissioned further efforts in improving the glaring inadequacies of the IFV that had been painfully explicated in the Middle East. In 1974, two parallel ventures, Object 675/681 and Object...

OP: As always, feedback, suggestions wanted and appreciated.
Much like the BMP-1, the BMP-2 would see extensive use in the Middle East, this time in the rugged foothills of Afghanistan. It is now well known that the comprehensive elevation and traverse offered by the BMP-2 was greatly prized in fighting in high altitudes, and certainly the 2A42 had a substantial amount of effectiveness against infantry positions. However, its side armour was not adequate against concentrated enemy heavy machinegun fire, which...

More tank news, as per the new format.
If you have more queries regarding a news story, just point it out, and I’ll further elaborate and provide links.
Exercise Anakonda has commenced in Poland with a multinational involvement including a significant US military presence, comprising 31,000 soldiers from 24 countries. The activities in the proceedings include a mock air assault operation, live fire drills, field training and cyber and electronic warfare exercises, among others. Unfortunately, it appears that one Polish civilian has been killed in a collision with a military convoy.
Raytheon’s Mission Support and Modernization business core competency is currently examining stockpiles of M60 Patton tanks worldwide, and in concert with the US Army to compile upgrade packages to sustain their combat viability into the future. Upgrades include comprehensive armour improvements, as well as gun and engine changes, and some other features like Jordan’s FCS upgrades.
Around 1536 companies have confirmed their attendance at Eurosatory in Paris next week, with the US continuing to be a dominating foreign presence, booking 136 companies. A notable increase in Latin American involvement has been seen, with a debut by Colombia as well as record attendances by other countries such as Brazil and Argentina.
Brazil has received a total of 50 armoured vehicles from the US Excess Defense Articles (EDA) program. This includes 12 M113A2 APCs, 34 M577A2 command vehicles and 4 M88A1 ARVs.
Portugal has had its final Pandur II vehicles delivered from GDELS this week. 14 vehicles was delivered, completing a final batch of 22, of a totally contracted 188 Pandur IIs of varying patterns.
The Republic of Korea Army plans to deploy 600 K806 and K808 armoured vehicles from 2016 to 2020. The two vehicles form Hyundai Rotem’s bid for the DAPA’s wheeled AFV project, in response to a shortage of all-terrain vehicles to transport infantry.
And that’s all for now.
Sexy bullpups belong here.
ITT: Most overrated guns of all time
Is my dog /k/ approved? Also post /k/ approved puppers
Post your pastel guns uwu
I'm not even mad, but that looks like shit to me. Then again, I get a boner for deep bluing and dark walnut so that's probably why I don't like it. Everyone has their own tastes.
Find a flaw
A friend with a gun
That glimmer of hope you see? That's me.
What was the first pistol you guys purchased? I've never owned a gun and I'm looking for something to just take to range on the weekends for fun now. Pic related is the weapon I'd choose based on looks alone but it's a bit pricey. I'd probably be looking to spend no more than $500, is that too little? Would it be cheaper to go to a gun show instead of a store? I live in NY state :/
/k/ the only gun I have to protect me twonight is a remington 870 12ga with a 34" barrel.
My ammo of choice is target shot
Am I fucked if some mudslime decides to enrich my wife tonight? I need some tactical advice, please
Not at indoor ranges, no.
You might order a shorter barrel and order some #1 lead shot loads, though.
Enough /pol/ talk for one day. Let's talk about shooting stuff.
With this shooting being far worse than Sandy hook a gun run in the coming months and an ammo run is almost a given.
Let's discuss the impending runs and potentially how bad it could get if hillary wins.
How high will prices go?
What sort of ammo will become hard to find or very expensive?
Will ARs become the first to go?
anyone else wish that japan wasnt so cucked with firearms so you could see what neato designs they would come up with and export?
I want a type 64 so badly that can handle NATO standard 7.62x51mm
What does /k/ think about the SA80?
I liked it, yes the original had issues but with the modifications I really liked it. It was well balanced, comfortable and easy to use.
There will be people who bitch and moan about it but they probably never handled it and only listened to the memes.
Overall a good weapon, sometimes a bitch to clean but I liked it.
With all the panic buying going on and off for a few years.
Why doesn't anyone on /K/ open up an Ammunition Factory?
I'm a britfag so I'm not to clued up on it but surely its something doable and just needs some money behind it and some licenses?
I mean you would make some great money.
