  1. Hi, I'm MrCatKK and I cannot Post

    The M4 Sherman was a bad tank, and the P-38 was a bad plane. These are the facts as I understand them.
  2. General news thread

    I wouldn't figure those things should be able to go that fast at all.
  3. Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    Wildest Weasel
  4. The Sovereign Citizen Movement

    Ryan Bundy for NV governor gogogo
  5. Ornithology Updates

    A rather complete 99 million-year-old bird in amber found in Myanmar
  6. I can't say I've thought to much about it, but I guess I always assumed a truck or something would pull up along side (outside of combat) and they'd reach over and load it from there. The above makes a lot more sense. I've never seen a reload for the setup on the M901 and LAV-AT. I assume it is similar.
  7. The camo there looks decidedly Chinese. I like the thing and find it funny that after 25-some years and one cancellation it still has a chance of being adopted. I never realized they reloaded it like that.
  8. Inb4 some Ukrainian sees it and gets the idea to make an export vehicle that will never work nor find any buyers.
  9. Seems that way. MTU-20 to be specific. Perspective is just a bit odd in the photo. Another image, not sure if it's the same bridge.
  10. Israeli AFVs

    I'm not exactly convinced
  11. It might be a flatbed trailer that was carrying the tank. The truck could have hit a bump or uneven ground and sent the tank off into the ditch.
  12. I'd seen talk a while back about Iskanders being moved to Crimea at some point, but nothing official either.
  13. General AFV Thread

    Not so much vehicles here. Move if desired.
  14. Bash the Pak-Fa thread

    I like the idea, but the Russians still need their new engines. I suppose though that makes grounds for a rematch. Maybe we can get those Israeli F-35s in on the action too.
  15. Bash the Pak-Fa thread

    I feel like any incident resulting in the damage or loss of a Su-57 would spark "Americans were behind it" conspiracy. I've seen elsewhere that the Russians might be using the Syrian situation for sizing up the F-22 with the Su-57 and its new senors/radar, but the reversal of this would also be a potential outcome. Also waiting to see if some pilot or airman manages to get a picture of both planes flying in the same frame, but I highly doubt either side would allow such an occurence.
  16. I still wouldn't want to eat it. Dog probably doesn't deserve it either.
  17. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Do you like the '90s? I suppose it's just a 30B2 with ERA, but this still sets a precedent.
  18. I Learned Something Today

    Apparently the Boy Scouts of America were gifted a P-61 after WW2 for some reason. I haven't been able to find much information on the matter unfortunately, besides that the plane is now at the USAF museum.
  19. Aerospace Pictures and Art Thread

    Those are some big rotor blades there...
  20. Syrian conflict.

    I'm curious what these rumored Kurd-SAA talks entail. Will the SAA stop, directly or by presence, the foreign Turkish advances, or could passage through SAA territory be given to Kurdish fighters that have been separated in the east?
  21. Aerospace Pictures and Art Thread

    Not the most immediate comparison, but it being the same length as a B-17 (74 feet and some odd inches) further drives the point home.
  22. The building in Parkland where the shooting took place will likely be demolished in the near future.
  23. Art Appreciation Thread

    Dialogue is needed here, especially for flying demon man.
