  1. Thread fro discussing the less glamorous aspects of infantry warfare. Helmets, night vision, backpacks and other assorted oddities. And for the first post, Canadian military is apparently testing a spring loaded knee brace to assist carrying heavy loads with less damage to knees. http://www.defensetech.org/2016/07/22/canadian-military-testing-bionic-knee-brace-for-troops/ Should also be useful for rehab after injuries. They are selling a commercial version for $1750
  2. So we have an aerospace pic thread. Boats are cool too. So how do you ship a ship?
  3. Unlikely. SH is a Darwinian environment when it comes to low effort posting. Link or die.
  4. Seriously? Low effort posting much? Wanna be a bit more specific with your question, with actual sentence structure so we know what the fuck you are talking about.
  5. And the shitposting continues. Ugh.
  6. Thread for naval warfare technology and general naval weapons and ships discussion. "Keel laying ceremony of Borei-A-class nuclear submarine Emperor Alexander III is will take place in Severodvinsk on December 18." http://mil.today/2015/Navy7/

    Kamov new concept leak

    Kamov is a pretty decent helo company, with a solid history with coaxial rotors. Compound rotor isn't exactly a new idea. Not exactly bleeding edge tech here either. I think it's something that Kamov could pull off if they had the cash to build the tooling for it. It's just concept/modelling work. Lots of might have beens that get cancelled for one reason or another.

    What evidence do you have to back that statement up?

    General news thread

    Whomever approved that should be taken out and shot. Not fatally, but shot nonetheless.

    General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    Almost certainly the 1.1inch quads + the .50s

    The Crossout thread.

    so we don't pollute the WoTism thread too much, I figured there are enough of us playing this to have a thread about it. Ok Tekky and Colli, teach us how to abuse the game.

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/the-f-35-cant-beat-the-plane-its-replacing-in-a-dogfigh-1714712248 With the advancing of IRST tech and the proliferation of steath tech, I don't think dogfighting is going away anytime soon.

    More Canadian Procurement Fail.

    Yep. Typical on all big Military contracts. Competitors launched a court challenge. Happens down there too. It's why I was so totally astounded at the air force chopper buy not being challenged.
  15. http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/naval/ships/2015/07/11/canada-renting-resupply-ships-from-chile-spain/29869123/ One more reason for me to hate on the Conservatives and their ongoing and massive defense procurement fuckups.
  16. But because you got promoted, you were never a reporter. Rolleyes
  17. So 2016 has been a rough year for celebs so far. And we just lost another music great. Glen Frey, of the Eagles passed away today. http://eagles.com/news/266763
  18. This thread is for random aerospace and Ordnance news that doesn't merit it's own thread. Anyhow, the US is deploying an upgrade to the JSOW that makes it capable against moving ships, as well as changing targets mid flight. The JSOW C-1 variant is network enabled, meaning it can be used against moving targets such as ships/boats. The big upgrade to it is Link 16 Data link, enabling targeting updates several times mid course. http://www.scout.com/military/warrior/story/1647495-navy-to-deploy-new-fighter-launched-weapon
