  1. Past hour
  2. Bash the F-35 thred.

    Funny thing is they got it right in the photo caption.
  3. Bash the F-35 thred.

    NB: that's an F-35A, not an F-35B. The writer screwed up.
  4. Bash the F-35 thred.

    Spiral of deaaaathhh~! https://www.defencetalk.com/first-japanese-built-f-35b-lands-at-misawa-ab-70817/
  5. General news thread

    The Zimbabwean military is trying very hard to make their military coup not look like a military coup.
  6. Today
  7. Saudi Arabia vs Iran thread.

    Good idea for a thread. The various Iran/Saudi proxy wars that are not covered in other threads will go here as well. I for one, am curious about how much money these proxy wars are costing the Saudis. There have been some noises that they're in fiscal trouble. Likewise, I'm curious how the Iranians are affording all of this fun.
  8. Saudi Arabia vs Iran thread.

    I'm of the opinion that Saudi Arabia and Iran are gonna throw down soon. The winds of war blow in that direction, with Saudi buying tons of weaponry, and lining up strategic partners. https://www.defencetalk.com/israel-ready-to-cooperate-with-saudi-arabia-to-face-iran-defence-chief-70829/ Just hoping the US stays out of it. Not worth getting involved, IMO.
  9. "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2017/11/14/mesquite-police-deny-misconduct-vehicle-break-call-ended-shooting I personally don't think this one passes the smell test for all of the allegations, but shooting a man for not being able to stop the alarm on his own truck doesn't say much for any de-escalation training. Forcible sodomy though? I don't think it's usual procedure to do cavity searches on scene?
  10. Railguns

    Yep, they were sabot separation tests with conventional guns. You can see the same projectiles being used with actual railguns in the tests below:
  11. The Leopard 2 Thread

    The 15 (eventually 16) ABCTs include the National Guard units. My understanding is there are 1,605 M1A2 SEP/SEPv2 and 791 M1A1 SA, with the rest being older M1A1s. The USMC only has 3 active tank battalions out of their 403 M1A1 FEP. This isn't accounting for the new SEPv3 made out of M1A1s.
  12. General AFV Thread

    Kazakh Barys with Aselsan Claw turret
  13. Railguns

    Just as a note, the clips where the projectile was spinning are because a traditional chemical (rifled) gun was used. Those HVP projectiles in 127mm and 155mm guns will be a boon to the navy.
  14. General AFV Thread

    Slovakia will buy 81 AMV XPs with TURRA turrets.
  15. "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    At first I thought maybe this was some kind of complaint about invasion of privacy. NOPE!
  16. Panem et Circenses Thread

    Today at work I was told that I should be a Patriots fan since I grew up in South Jersey and they're the logical team for people in New Jersey to be fans of. After I told him that Philadelphia and New York exist, he told me that everyone in New Jersey should be Giants/Jets fans because they are "actually New Jersey teams". Also the Patriots are not actually connected with Boston in any way because they are the New England Patriots. (also baseball isn't a real sport because there aren't salary caps) (and NFL championships before the super bowl aren't valid)
  17. Yesterday
  18. This stuff looks like things in the game crossout. Some make sense. Some Just make you wonder.
  19. "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    I read it as "lawyers who specialize in harassing cops realize that body cams could make their job harder, try to come up with explanation for why this is a problem for everyone else."
  20. Youtube general?

    Looking at his website and... only one post in the past year. 3 if you count the past 13 months including a "Hurr hurr, I'm running for President". Some folks should have just stuck to writing about pirates beating up ninjas.
  21. General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    Oh shit. Argentina has lost contact with one of its submarines. http://www.janes.com/article/75782/argentina-loses-contact-with-one-of-its-submarines
