  1. Dammit Donald, that airplane was supposed to be a secret! Donald Trump claims US sold Norway 'F-52' aircraft that doesn't exist
  2. I watched this last night. I haven't actually watched Discovery or the Orville. Neither seems very appealing.
  3. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    Ok, we have a new winner in the "worst article about star wars" contest. The write of this one must be either paid on the side by Disney, or perhaps Disney has incriminating photos. Anyhow, the title of the article is so absurd it's almost on the level of The Onion. Why the Hell Isn’t Anybody Talking About ‘The Last Jedi’ for Best Picture? "Of course, there’s a very simple answer as to why “The Last Jedi” is languishing in the fringes of the Oscar race, left with nothing but a billion dollars to console it. And no, it’s not because of the overheated “backlash” — while it’s obviously true that a certain percentage of sane “Star Wars” fans have yet to accept Rian Johnson’s installment as the summit of the saga (give them time), let’s stop pretending that a pathetic gaggle of racist trolls are an accurate bellwether for one of the most rewarding mega-movies in recent memory. The fact of the matter is that nobody is talking about “The Last Jedi” as a possible Best Picture contender because nobody is talking about “The Last Jedi” as a possible Best Picture contender."
  4. No, not really. Anyway, do ya'll realize how fucked up this situation is? We have a president, one year into his first term, that is threatening to sue his former chief campaign advisor for libel. To quote George W Bush, that was some weird shit.
  5. Are Trumps lawyers retarded? Cause it kinda seems that way. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-book-lawsuit/trump-lawsuit-over-white-house-book-nonstarter-legal-experts-say-idUKKBN1ET2HG
  6. Books About Tanks

    This is the point where I jump in and mention that I interviewed the author of these books, R L Dinardo, a couple years ago. https://tankandafvnews.com/tag/r-l-dinardo/ Fun fact, he told me that he orginally wanted to title the book on horses in the German army of WWII "Stuck in the mud and knee deep in horse shit." He said the publisher was not too keen on that title. He has a very strong New York accent and sense of humor.
  7. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    That Kampfpanzer 70 footage is great and the music adds a nice, 60's era touch.
  8. The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    You ain't kidding. I dare anyone to actually read Chapter 14 of Ogorkiewicz's Technology of Tanks, "Soil-Vehicle Mechanics".
  9. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    I like that this guy called the laser battering ram "Grond." That was my first thought when I saw it in the movie.
  10. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    I thought I had found the worst article about the new star wars movie. Then I read this piece of pompous drivel. Forbes: Why Do So Many 'Star Wars' Fans Hate 'The Last Jedi'?
  11. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    The most shocking thing about this film is how bad it is. Its like they let some guy with barely any experience both write and direct a star wars film without making sure he actually made it fit with the previous film. Oh wait, that's exactly what they did.

    Also, since it is now established that they Rebels have bombers, does that mean they have been conducting bombing raids on First Order cities? I want to see the Mon Calamari version of Curtis LeMay.
  13. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    The entire "chase" premise was ridiculous. Doesn't the Empire have other ships in their fleet that could have intercepted the rebel fleet from a different direction? Anyhow, the Empire should get over their fixation with battleships and start building more escort carriers.
