    WoT v WT effort-thread

    https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/412220-development-xm-1-c-and-xm-1-gm-ancestors-of-the-abrams/ Top tier performance just a credit card payment away... Not only do they have armor resistant to 115mm KE and 125mm HEAT, they also have stabilizers... I guess mental paraplegics need to play video games too, because they're giving away all the crutches with these tanks...

    WoT v WT effort-thread

    WT = pay 2 keep your sanity. I stopped a couple months ago (with my highest tanks being the Tiger II(H) and Coelian) and just visit the forums because shitposting is fun. I think the biggest killer for me was it felt like I wasn't rewarded for my loyalty as a player (>3 years), while any asshole and their friend could buy their way to one of the best vehicles in the game (Obj. 120), or troll master Supreme (bIaS-6).

    European Union common defense thread

    This is exactly why that will never happen: The EU gets off by blaming everything on Russia. Whom are they going to blame when Russia is a friend?

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    The look on that cops face... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  5. I suppose I should have elaborated: 1. In the article, it referenced there was Russian and Ukrainian news on this as well, citing “Obozrevatel” as a source. I can’t read it, so I was wondering what it says about this (on phone, so no google translate). 2. I’m wondering why the hell this is in American news, other than a “let’s hate Russia for [insert anything]” type of article. 3. I didn’t know (nor would have ever though) that anyone would use dolphins for military purposes (dare I say, porpoises ). I knew the providers were garbage, but when I read the title, my brain said “WUT?” so hard I couldn’t stop myself from clicking. I guess my main concern was “why are the Ukrainians using dolphins?” as it doesn’t make sense to me. Should have made that clearer, rather than as a side note.
  6. I guess this should go here, as it relates to Ukraine, but Ukrainian Navy dolphins were starved after Russian annexation... I don't know what to think about this. tl;dr, the Dolphins were trained by the Ukraine Navy for mine detection and personnel recovery (in case someone fell overboard). Apparently, they refused to be feed by the Russian handlers, and starved... I guess even the dolphins in Ukraine have a Russian hate boner? On a side note: why would you use a dolphin for mine recon when there's sonar and USV's?

    Does that mean Germany has to start another world war?

    European Union common defense thread

    It would be nice to see all the countries of Europe come together like the USA (somewhat sovereign states answering to a larger central body, with a combined military and economy), but that will most definitely not happen. It’s kinda sad really, a combined EU would be quite a formidable global force.

    Tank Layout

    Yes, the goal was for crew safety. That's what I based 3 and 6 off of. I wonder why they use double-V hulls on the new Strykers if it would cause problems like the hull splitting open, unless there's something else going on.

    Tank Layout

    Which of these hull designs would be best for under-belly blast protection? https://imgur.com/I8U9JDW I have a feeling it's between 5 and 6. My gut is saying 5 is better, but I'm slightly partial to 6's shape... and I don't know why... Also, I'm having a weird bug where when I try to post a picture, it overlaps the message box. Any suggestions?

    Well, I mean, if blondes are you thing, who am I to judge. Anyway, maybe we could move this to another thread (so as not to contaminate this one)? Perhaps an "Arbitrary (and Extraneous) Questions Thread"?

    In what way do you use the “necrobooty” meme (I’m assuming it’s a meme)? Is it a celebratory thing, like “I just won a contest! [inserts necrobooty meme]”?
  14. This AC doesn't look that bad... much better than the previous attempts anyway. Also, no Rooikat? I love the Red Cat, it's my favorite wheeled TD
  15. But it looks cool, and aesthetics are what counts on the modern battlefield
  16. You don't like the look of the Zuzana? What's there not to like? It looks like a dedicated wheeled artillery unlike the CAESAR 155 which looks like a large truck with a howitzer slapped on (I remember seeing something like that in the Jihad design bureau ). I too, like the look of the A-222. Only problem is it's 130mm and not 152mm so it cant get those awesome 2K25 Krasnopol guided shells
  17. 'facepalm' Why didn't I think of this earlier: Since the BMPT can carry 3 people up in the front, couldn't they put all 3 crew up there and make the turret unmanned, similar to the Koalitsiya? Could probably just place the Uran-9's turret on top without having to put a hole in the roof, so you have plenty of room for the crew and their equipment.

    The UK Brave Space For Shitposting and Other Opinions Thread

    Isn't London a cruise-missile free zone?
  19. Appears to be just an external bin for stuff. In this pic, it's holding spare ammo boxes for the roof machine gun: I was honestly hoping for something more like the G6-52 or ShKH Dana/Zuzana, as I think those look so sexy.

    I think it’s because we love are guns (and knives) more than we love our government

    Syrian conflict.

    by the SAA, against the SAA, or in general?

    I didn’t mean for it to be a joke... sorry if I was offensive.
