  6. Tanks guns and ammunition.

    Chinese APFSDS diagram: I can read Chinese, and that sounds about right. The top line translates to "This shell's (read DU penetrator) layout is basically identical to the tungsten alloy shell (illustration 64), except for *text is cut off*. The right one is indeed the DU penetrator. The tungsten penetrator's description is obscured by the watermark.
  7. I Learned Something Today

    This isn't a fair assessment. It needs to be done via department of transportation districts. Each state has different, usually county based DOT programs that are either better or worse at maintenance due to a variety of factors both in and out of their control. For example, Trinity county in Texas has better roads than Harrison county. Averages for an entire state can be misleading. Source: my father worked for TXDOT for 27 years.

  16. https://news.mail.ru/politics/32271770/?frommail=1 Wow, that was "fast". But hey, excellent way to throw Minsk 2 into dubster fire and leave Kiev politicians a way to re-initiate war, completely ignore Ukrainians on side of DPR/LPR and burn a bridge through which DPR and LPR could re-intigrate peacefully.
  17. Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    Don't look now but India can into ICBm testing too... https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/defence/india-successfully-test-fires-agni-5-ballistic-missile/articleshow/62551852.cms http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/18/asia/india-icbm-tests/index.html The missile has been tested five times since 2012, with the most recent test prior to Thursday coming in December 2016. That launch drew the ire of India's two most important geostrategic adversaries: Pakistan and China. The Agni-V's range distance means all of China is now in striking distance, according to Shukla. "It's range has been long known, and India needs it to be able to retaliate against China's eastern seaboard's high value targets," Narang said.
  18. There might be criminal charges related to the Las Vegas shooting filed within the next 60 days. So says a slew of media organizations that have filed suit in court to have hundreds of documents, search warrants, and evidence held by law enforcement to be released to the public. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/criminal-charges-possible-in-las-vegas-shooting-lawyers-say/ These documents can't be released because there is the possibility that other individuals may be indicted. The Las Vegas Review Journal also writes that the suspect "worked hard to cover his tracks" and that he was prescribed Valium. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/gunman-in-las-vegas-shooting-worked-hard-to-cover-tracks/.

  20. General AFV Thread

    Looks like Iraq is going to try to get its own tank with some Czech help, the Asad Babil-2 Kafil-1.
  21. The Whirlybird Thread

  22. The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    Hmmm I'm trying to think were I saw numbers for that, I don't think it's in the normal manuals. I'll poke around though. Seems hard to believe a good American Ton would be that much heavier than a British Ton, maybe that's the extra weight of the gun and mount on the 17 pounders?
