    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Not even surprised. Think they even had their radios set up when they arrived?

    Bash the Pak-Fa thread

    How'd they even know that it was a -57? Are the flyboys really cleared to fly them that low?

    I mean, it's more comprehensible than that radiologist op-ed that sounded like really twisted ad copy for 5.56 ammo effects on target...

    The Worm Thread (For Actual Worms)

    We are actually wormposting? For real? Meet a 2.8 meter long tapeworm. The guy it was in was completely asymptomatic the entire time.

    Tanks guns and ammunition.

    Chinese APFSDS diagram: I can read Chinese, and that sounds about right. The top line translates to "This shell's (read DU penetrator) layout is basically identical to the tungsten alloy shell (illustration 64), except for *text is cut off*. The right one is indeed the DU penetrator. The tungsten penetrator's description is obscured by the watermark.

    FGS Baden-W├╝rttemberg has reportedly been returned to Blohm+Voss after failing trials How many ships that listed while fresh out of the shipyards were accepted for service?

    Bar / Cage armour + LASSO + RPGnet

    Considering that the argument stems from "I want an out from a situation where the enemy is no longer engaging me from my composite and ERA-protected frontal arc, but now has shots on the rear arc of my vehicle", I'm inclined to agree. Still curious, though.

    Bar / Cage armour + LASSO + RPGnet

    Quick question (apologies if off topic): Have there been any recorded tests/computer simulations of a tandem charge warhead impacting slat armor? For some reason I'm in an argument with someone who appears to sincerely believe that the precursor charge being intercepted means that the main charge is rendered a dud as well.

    Did the barrel somehow lose a fight with a tree?

    General AFV Thread

    I don't believe it ever advanced beyond cutting cardboard. IIRC the implementation of the IR camo used still isn't certified for field use (for whatever such a thing from BAE is worth) either. And the program it was "designed" for is dead. No Wilks either I see.

    North Korea's ICBMs and You

    New satellite imagery suggests that a failed Hwasong-12 test missile hit the small city of Tokchon following an engine failure.
  12. Magpul's Facebook page had some patent drawings for the FMG-9 uploaded. The images disagree with imgur for some reason, so no mirrors yet.

    General AFV Thread

    A while back I was tweeted an article claiming that you could dodge a modern AAM without a ton of asterisks involved. Which says a lot about the quality of said article. Little did I know that that was merely the tip of the iceberg. I am displeased to present you the defenseissues.net light tank proposal. That is a 120mm mortar and a 40mm CT autocannon side by side in the same mount, because... why not. The problems associated with direct fire mortars are apparently rectifiable using more propellant. Yes, these people are real. Surely the hull design is a bit more sensible, right? Surely they can't mess it up? Um. I'm not seeing how the driver is going to fit inside either without a semi-recumbent arrangement. What you see is what you get - no suggestion of materials, thickness, composition or vintage of AP ammunition it's supposed to resist. Engine choice seems reasonable, but I'm not sure what the ban on external fuel tanks around friendly infantry is supposed to avoid. ...no wonder this outfit is claiming you can just barrel roll your way out of having a Meteor locked on you.

    Bash the Pak-Fa thread

    The Su-57 has potential to be upgraded into a sixth generation fighter. Does it really count as an upgrade when there aren't production airframes to upgrade? (also, new poster. Hi.)
