Strategically, the German loss in WW2 was due to logistics and eventually running out of manpower, right? Would they have beaten Russia if they had had unlimited manpower and could replace losses infinitely?

Are they feasible? Obviously not at the size depicted in souls games, but if you made them a more reasonable size, would they make for a decent weapon?
Wasn't talking about the size. I meant more the style of sword. Like, is it useful to have a curved sword be that big? Or would it just be better to have something like a sabre or a falchion?
Way better to have a falchion. I mean, a curved greatsword is just as feasible as a straight one. The curved one would have a better cutting effect thanks to the smaller surface area initially contacting the target.
That being said, two-handed swords are great in the hands of skilled soldiers. Handing one to the common man, like you or I, would do us a disservice. We'd be open a lot on the battlefield.
I'd want a falchion, sabre, yatagan, kopis, or sickle-sword over a claymore, zwei-haender,...

What are some really good nylon gunbelts that aren't soe? I want to get one along with a leather one but I don't know who makes an exceptional 1.5 nylon belt.
Question for /k/ about fitness.
I'm a former armyfag, and now I struggle to maintain any semblance of fitness. Back then, I could always count on the camaraderie to help me maintain my focus and actually go out and PT.
Now, I have zero focus, and zero motivation.
How does /k/ stay motivated to run and maintain a reasonable level of fitness?
Why is it easy for some, and why do others seem to lack the spark?
>inb4 nice blog
Stop being a lazy shit and go the gym.
Either that or just accept being a fat blob.
These are your options OP.
Also nice blog faggot.
the gates of babylon have fallen, and the night casts a dark shadow upon the ragnarok of our former civilization, and now the people ask for my help, and i look down upon them and say...
How often(how many rounds) would I have to do a complete tear down?
I love the accuracy of the rifle, and it's history, but, I prefer easy tear downs for maintenance(AR-10)
New type of armor or new to the trending news stories, either way, foam metal armor per the article says flexible and 1 inch equals class IV.

Thoughts on the Beretta ARX?
applebee's makes fresh italian spaghetti that'll fill you up, just like the ARX. light on the wallet too
functionally great rifle, I've yet to hear anything seriously bad about it, but it's ugly as fuck. I'd wager to say one of the worst looking rifles made in the past couple decades.
Celebrating my last ever archery shoot.
Tomorrow I go in to get three vertebrae fused and I will be back to boring guns agan.
Will America sell Qatar 73 F-15 Silent Eagles?
Or will it go the way of the F-20?
Ok so the last thread is slowing down, and someone wanted a new actually somewhat serious thread so here it is.
Post gear, ideas, books, pdf's, anything that could help fellow preppers.
My question is if i put a wall around my property (around three acres) how tall would you say it would have to be to offer adequate protection while also offering the capability to defend it without going full autist and putting gun loops in the wall.
Army Handbook for Improvised Munitions as well as military issued survival books
Aside from that, shit like the farmers almanac and a book on basic gardening, farming, butchering and preserving. Old skills like cheese and salami making.
Your fence should be no higher than anyone else's, really.
If you have the materials I would build it about 10 foot with some type of catwalk. Although making a compound may not look all that good, freaking out the neighbours should make you look like a preppers therefore a target.
