  1. Last time I checked, reading the forum, Jeeps has contributed hundreds of sourced documents on tanks including detailed engine diagrams of rare variants that are on this very forum. How many of the articles in this forum have you read? Have you read all 89 pages of this topic? Yes? No? Also, he's a moderator here for a reason. You are NOT a moderator here for a reason. You're here because we are enjoying baiting a clueless Wehraboo who is white knighting for a literal war losing tank design. We like Wehraboo hunts. It's what we do. Again, you are here at discretion. Protip: It is OK to be wrong on the Internet. Again. It is OK to be WRONG on the Internet (like you are at this moment). Many of us had Wehraboo tendencies as well when we were young and stupid, like you are right now. Perhaps it is time to reevaluate your opinions?
  2. Wait... Dafuq? Da ACTUAL phuck? Yes. And I suppose if the Western Allies or Soviets had built their tanks out of discarded Spam tins and bailing wire, then the Panther might be able to compete, tank-for-tank. But as has been stated multiple times, and throughout these forums, a tank is part of a weapons system that is meant to cooperate with multiple components and arms of a military. As history and multiple sourced documents have proven, the Panther performed abysmally at the task assigned to it.
  3. This has been a successful Wehraboo Hunt. Their impenetrable Wehraboo skulls, harder even than Krupp steel shall adorn our lodges. comieboo younglings shall listen in awed silence while grizzled hunters recount their kills as the Wehraboo beast flesh sizzles over the campfire. As a wise woman once said, long ago on the television, “It’s a Good thing”.
  4. Yes. Every piece of machinery does indeed break down. At that point, you fix them. How much easier is it to fix a Sherman or a T-34 than a Panther? Are you able to fix it in the field? Are you able to physically tow it to a rear echelon motor pool? Are there spare parts available? Do the spare parts even fit? Is any of this repeatable?
  5. Man, the Panther fanbois are getting pounded. The last time the Panther has lost this bad against the Sherman was the Battle of Arracourt.
  6. We’ve finally lured all the Wehraboo beasts into the trap. Have at them boys! We feast on Wehraboo flesh tonight! *Drums pound*
  7. Looks like we have Russian... CODlusion!!! ... ‘Are we getting invaded?’: U.S. fishing boats faced Russian aggression near Alaska https://www.boston.com/news/national-news/2020/11/13/us-boats-faced-russian-aggression-near-alaska Tim Thomas, a U.S. captain on the fishing vessel Northern Jaeger, encountered the Russian activities on Aug. 26 when his ship was operating more than 20 nautical miles inside the U.S. economic zone. After a Russian plane directed Thomas to take his boat out of the area, he said, he responded that he was within the U.S. zone, not on the Russian side, and that the Russians could not order them to leave. At that point, he said, a Russian military ship joined in and issued similar orders. “At this point, I’m going, ‘What’s going on here? Are we getting invaded?’” Thomas said in an interview. Thomas said he contacted the Coast Guard, but the officers there, he said, seemed to be unaware of the Russian operations. They told him he was responsible for the safety of his crew. But he was reluctant to leave: They were finding some of the best fishing of the season, and the Russians had ordered him not to return to those productive grounds for nine days. The Russians, who were running a military exercise known as Ocean Shield that involved some 50 warships and 40 aircraft operating throughout the Bering Sea, were adamant, and their warnings grew more intense. U.S. officials have since said that a Russian submarine launched a cruise missile from the Bering Sea that day. As he considered the safety of the 130 people on his boat, Thomas ultimately decided to leave. He estimates the forced departure cost his company more than $1 million in revenue.
  8. https://komonews.com/news/local/jetliner-hits-brown-bear-while-landing-in-southeast-alaska BAAAEEEYYYEEERRR!!! BOOOOOOOeing!!! 737-700oooooooo!!! ... “The nose gear missed the bears, but the captain felt an impact on the left side after the bears passed under the plane,” Alaska Airlines said in a statement. The pilots saw the bear lying about 20 feet (6 meters) from the center of the runway as the plane taxied to a parking area just before 6:30 p.m., the airline said. It was not immediately clear how many passengers were on the flight. The plane departed from the town of Cordova and was scheduled to stop in Juneau after leaving Yakutat. The left engine cowling of the jet was damaged, and the plane remained in Yakutat Sunday.
  9. This guy’s reading comprehension and grasp of irony, sarcasm, and the nuances of the English language are almost as good as his knowledge of aerospace and weapons procurement. Does he not know why this is called the “Bash the F-35 Thred” with “Thred” intentionally misspelled?
  10. RIP Seattle Ride the Ducks The WuFlu has avenged the deaths of all those Asian tourists you killed. https://mynorthwest.com/1766776/ride-the-ducks-seattle-shuts-doors/
  11. President Trump has knocked off another terrorist. https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/31/politics/us-strike-aqap-leader-yemen/index.html The United States conducted a strike recently targeting Qassim al-Rimi, the leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the terror group's franchise based in Yemen that has repeatedly expressed interest in conducting attacks targeting the United States, a US official told CNN on Friday. ... Al-Rimi was the target of a 2017 raid the Navy SEALS. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/yemen-raid-had-secret-target-al-qaeda-leader-qassim-al-n717616 “the goal of the massive operation was to capture or kill Qassim al-Rimi, considered the third most dangerous terrorist in the world and a master recruiter. But while one SEAL, 14 al Qaeda fighters and some civilians, including an 8-year-old girl, were killed during a firefight, al-Rimi is still alive and in Yemen, multiple military officials said.” ... “On Sunday, al-Rimi — who landed on the United States' most-wanted terrorist list after taking over al Qaeda's Yemen affiliate in 2015 — released an audio recording that military sources said is authentic. "The fool of the White House got slapped at the beginning of his road in your lands," he said in an apparent reference to the Jan. 29 raid.’” ... And now the “Fool of the White House” has added another scalp to his belt. Democrats and Corporate Media types are no doubt mourning the loss of another austere religious scholar.

Go Home Robots, You’re FIRED! https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/01/09/zume-pizza-closes-down-cuts-172-jobs-in-mountain-view/ Zume Pizza, the Mountain View company that used robots to make its pizzas, has made its last delivery.
