  1. I Learned Something Today

    TIL that Bill Maher is subscribed to Forgotten Weapons.
  2. Aerospace Documents Collection Point

  3. Florida Governor declares state of emergency ahead of Richard Spencer talk. Pretty sure this violates the Constitution, and therefore the federal gov't should invade Florida to re-establish the republican form of government.
  4. I think a lot of people on this forum are interested in this game, so I figured we might as well have a thread. I haven't bought it yet. Interested to hear which "level" of purchase people think are worth it. EoD is expensive, but I guess it does give you a Season Pass? And the game is supposed to have no microtransactions. From what I have read, all of the perks of the different preorder levels only come with release; everyone gets the same shit in alpha/beta. But of course, that's all promises as of yet. From what I hear though, the actual game itself is shockingly polished for an "alpha". It is supposed to be heading into beta soon, but evidently you can still get the preorder perks during beta, so there doesn't seem to be any rush to buy the game. I've heard there are server issues right now, and it can take up to an hour to connect. Not good. Hopefully fixed in beta? I'm not sure what to think. I'll probably buy in at at least the lowest level here soon. Considering EoD, but I'd really like more assurances that this game isn't going to be dropped like a hot potato once the devs cash in.
  5. General AFV Thread

    I'll start off with a couple Pathe videos:
  6. The Whirlybird Thread

    A thread for helicopters, choppers, copters, helos, thopters, whirlybirds, eggbeaters, gyroplanes, slicks, autogyros, gyrocopters, ornithopters and other non-fixed-wing aerodromes. Our first topic: Attack helicopters. They are undoubtedly awesome, but in a large-scale conventional war, will they be resilient enough to have a presence on the battlefield?
  7. I love Mattis so much: Trump could put every child under the age of 16 into a death camp and I might still consider his tenure a wash, because he appointed Mattis.
  8. Australia, with only as many people as the state of Texas, is one of the primary sources of improvised fully automatic weapons in the world. And I think, that's really all that needs said.
  9. General news thread

    Oh no, you see, when we left Iraq we gave it back to the people or some such bullshit.
  10. At 27:46, Milley actually says Springfield Armory, Inc contributed to the war effort in WWII.
  11. So, first suggestions would be Gen Urobuchi and Satoshi Kon, masters of writing and directing, respectively. Anime is an interesting medium, because it affords a great deal of creative control. Put someone like Kon at the helm, and you get some of the finest motion pictures ever put to screen. Put someone else... And you may well get derivative, perverted garbage. This thread is for discussing anime. It is subject to moderation at any time. Any devolution into closeted pedophilia will be moderated with extreme prejudice. Any banal spergouts will be removed. Let's bring forward the best and mercilessly deride the worst of anime.
  12. Forum Improvements and Changelog

    OK, I've added a couple emoticons: Also, I have decided that some gifs will be large and some small, depending on context. I understand why @LostCosmonaut and others want small gifs, and we will keep some gifs small if it makes sense to do so (examples are "death cookie" and "sicko"). Other gifs need to be large, for obvious reasons. In light of this, I have added a large version of "fucking metal":
  13. Babylon Bee is not pulling any punches today!
  14. Saw the new BR movie this evening, and it was really great. They avoided all the things I was worried about, took their time, but still wrapped in some really excellent action scenes.
  15. Some interesting shots of sophisticated VBIED armor in this video:
  16. General news thread

    It is already. Just type "warroom" with colons at each end.
  17. Military.com has an interesting - if a bit pop-y - segment on body armor. One failed project mentioned, the "creeper tank", I cannot find any other information on.
  18. Making any of those quiet enough will be the biggest challenge, I think. Well, range will be the biggest paylpad for the electrics.
  19. Bele's Wolf Thread.
