  1. This thread shall be our general thread about interactive entertainment - "games". News, gameplay, predictions, reviews, links to interesting games, videos are welcomed in this thread! I will begin with gameplay videos - TheBeef channel is pretty funny and have a little bit unusual content. Short videos that don't eat much of your time: His recent cool Mechwarrior videoguide to how to make game more interesting that it is - This one is just gold Here is something for those, who have too much free time now - Gyle. He almost always cast Supreme Commander FAF battles: His shorter vids:
  2. During time i watch for news from Syria/Iraq, i saw plenty of crazy, interesting or funny DIY/homemade weapons that IMO deserved separate topic. Syrian 220 mm MLRS on pick-up chassis. Truck with AA gun inside Hell cannons (Syria): Radicals also made a SPG with those hell cannons using unusual chassis... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx8EaPr6C0I
  3. I want to show you several late Soviet MBT designs, which were created in 1980s in order to gain superiority over NATO focres. I do think that some of them are interesting, some of them look like a vehicle for Red Alert/Endwar games. Today, Russia is still use Soviet MBTs, like T-80 and T-72s, but in late 1970s and 1980s Soviet military and engineers were trying to look for other tank concepts and designs. T-64 and other MBTs, based on concept behind T-64, were starting to reaching their limits, mostly because of their small size and internal layout. PART 1 Object 292 We open our Box of Communism Spreading Godless Beasts with not so much crazy attempt to mate T-80 hull with 152 mm LP-83 gun (LP-83 does not mean Lenin Pride-83). It was called Object 292. First (and only, sadly) prototype was build in 1990, tested at Rzhevskiy proving ground (i live near it) in 1991, which it passed pretty well. Vehicle (well, turret) was developed by Leningrad Kirov factory design bureau (currently JSC "Spetstrans") Because of collapse of Soviet Union this project was abandoned. One of reasons was that main gun was "Burevestnik" design bureau creation, which collapsed shortly after USSR case to exist. It means that Gorbachyov killed this vehicle. Thanks, Gorbach! Currently this tank is localted in Kubinka, in running condition BTW. Main designer was Nikolay Popov. Object 292, as you see at photos, had a new turret. This turret could have been mounted on existing T-80 hulls without modifications to hull (Object 292 is just usual serial production T-80U with new turret, literally). New Mechanical autoloading mechanism was to be build for it. Turret had special Abrams-like bustle for ammunition, similar feature you can see on Ukrainian T-84-120 Yatagan MBT and, AFAIK, Oplot-BM. Engine was 1250 HP GTD-1250 T-80U engine. 152 mm main smoothbore gun was only a little bit bigger than 2A46 125 mm smoothbore gun, but it had much better overall perfomance. This prototype was clearly a transitory solution between so called "3" and "4th" generation tanks. Some nerd made a model of it: _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ........Continue in Part 2

    just now
  6. Syrian conflict.

    Well, we have thread about Yemen conflict and Ukrainian war, so in light of recent changes in situation in Syria, this thread became relevant enough, IMO.
  7. Syrian conflict.

  8. We should have such thread as those weapons were used a lot in conflicts of last 2 years, and are used now. New Best Korean 300mm MLRS, it was shown at a parade in Oct of 2015. I saw claims that it can reach 160-180 km.
