Please dump all your guerilla warfare/ resistance/weapon manuals/psyop tactics PDFs you have. Im finally making a collection. If therers already a collection somewhere on the site point me to it. It can be CIA stay behind shit, homemade weapons shiut, vietnam shit,guerilla warfare from brazil whatever is practically useful and can be printed and disseminated among people in a revolutionary situation. things that give you some rudimentary education

If the way gets hazy, you gotta do the cooking by the book!



What good reason would you have to destroy civilian electrical infrastructure?


NTC, NAE, but possible for industrial sabotage, economic sabotage, possibly even military sabotage.
As for what reasons others do: Siegefags think le chaos will catalyse le race war so they have been targeting electrical infrastructure intentionally. But they're fuckin idiots so the only relevance would be understanding how people attack infrastructure in order to know how to defend it……. maybe.

where can one get their hands on weapons made by the DDR?


I think a huge portion of it was destroyed out of victorious butthurt


why would you want weapons with harder to get ammo?


There are also some roller-delayed assault rifles, such as the HK33


not very


I see a lot of talk about how Russia n China could shit on the west with hypersonic missiles. which is cool af but I also don't know if thats even true or what a hypersonic missile even is(I assume it goes faster than sound?). Are they a big deal? I really do hope the hype lives up this time

>Russia intercepted 85% of the "stealth" Storm Shadow missiles even though a large number of HARM and MALD decoys were used and none of them were able to hit the actual target, the shipyard and instead hit a ship in a dry dock, with the damage being relatively minimal


If you're genuine in asking for proofs, don't s*ge please.

The proofs are in the reports of the actual attack and the video footage which demonstrates 2 impacts, with some debris*. 2 impacts out of 15 launched SCALP missiles and numerous MALD and HARM missiles deployed in a mass attack. That's 13% success rate for the Storm Shadows, which is a 87% kill score for Russian air defense. The actual target was the shipyard itself, as that would a critical hit indeed, limiting repair facilities and production facilities of the Russian Navy.

*The impacts are not full on hits, had the cruise missile actually directly hit the Corvette the damage would have been significantly higher, the 2 missiles that hit were likely clipped by SAMs but were still flight capable enough to roughly reach target coordinates.

The damage looks bad visually, but if you've ever seen footage of WW2 destroyers in Dry Dock, you'll see that this is essentially surface damage, not a write-off of the ship. It was essentially nil. The repairs of the Askold will be pricey, at least several million dollars to replace the damaged RADAR array, siding and burnt sections, but considering that each Storm-Shadow is priced at 3 million dollars each, the ADM-160B MALD is 120,000 dollars each and that AGM-88 HARM missiles are 284,000 to 847,000 dollars each + fuel expenses for putting that many Su-24s and MiG-29s into the air (the Su-24 can only carry 4 Storm Shadows at a time, so that's a minimum of 4 Su-24s + escort and decoy launches) means the combined cost for the entire operation is going to be roughly the same as the cost of repair for the ship, making it a pyrrhic victory for Ukraine at the very least.

Ukrainian telegram channels actually claimed 18 Storm Shadows were launched and 3 hit the ship, but the Russian MoD stated otherwise and someone anonymously released footage before that where only 2 impacts are seen.



>Ukrainian telegram channels actually claimed 18 Storm Shadows were launched and 3 hit the ship

>Su-24 can only carry 4 Storm Shadows at a time,

Never seen them carrying more than two.


NTA but
>Never seen them carrying more than two.
Which is only proving the point, they're very large missile and require a lot of launch platforms to carry, which in turn creates larger fuel and prep expenditures.
Ukrainian Telegram channels claimed this, although the official airforce of Ukraine later stated it was 15, the post you're replying to links the latter


>Ukrainian Telegram channels claimed this, although the official airforce of Ukraine later stated it was 15, the post you're replying to links the latter
No, it doesn't. Links two Russian sources that contradict each other.


Why have these two weapon systems stood the test of time? I know the UK uses the SA and China uses the QBZ but where else in the world you see other nations adopt these weapon systems? It seems that the m16 line and the Kalashnikovs have the most "mass produced" and used status.

> The only difference now is that Milley is the first guy in 40 years to be tired of the wasteful spending
Is he the guy that said he read Mao or Marx?



“I’ve read Mao Zedong. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with having some situational understanding about the country which we are here to defend?”


I love the line of thinking that it's cheaper to replace every rifle in the US military than to let research keep embezzling all the money under the guise of developing one


>Advanced Combat Rifle program cost $300 million
>OICW program cost $100 million
>Individual Carbine program cost $1.8 billion

Milley was the guy that canceled the last one for being wasteful. After a $1.8 billion waste of a program, it changes your perspective on how much you can do for that kind of cash. It literally becomes a better idea to say "fuck it, give us battle rifles that double as DMRs and put fancy terrifying aimbot scopes on em. Just stop spending money on nothing."

(Just in case some /leftypol/ tourist starts yelling 'glow fed', I'm not American, this is purely out of curiosity, if anyone were serious they wouldn't be discussing it on a public pan-african permagrowth-designing forum, and it's not my fault if your opsec is atrociously shit)

The vid rel (from Examined Life) was posted a while ago, the punchline being the El Salvadorean telling the pessimistic American 'don't you have mountains in the US?' 'It's easy, you go to the mountains, you start an armed cell, you create revolution.' A recent reply retorted, absurdly, that the government would 'just McNuke' them.

It got me thinking a bit, the US despite MacArthur's efforts didn't iNuke any country since Japan and I suspect it would be very unlikely to do it on a civilized part of their own mainland. And ultimately, even in the modern age, the US has failed to really utilize their weaponry dominance. It's easy for the naive eye to look at drones, gun-dogs, tanks and planes and forget just how effective asymmetric warfare can be against superpowers.

The questions:
- Is creating a base of operations onnamountains a viable tactic in the US?
- Are there any modern US examples of successful guerilla tactics, urban or rural? Possible examples could include organized crime or rural compounds.
- How is asymmetric warfare changed by proximity? US wars in Asia and further have a noticeable supply issue with distance.

> In America only certain areas have expansive wilderness where the US army would struggle to operate. The forests of the Pacific North West, the Cascades and Alaska. Everywhere else its just urban cities and suburbs
You're forgetting about the Appalachian


That's true let's not forget Eric Rudolph was able to elude the feds there for a long time. But the Appalachians are not remote enough. Roads and highways connect it to large population centers meaning troops and equipment can easily be hauled in and the area is well mapped out. It may be possible for the natives of Alaska to mount an armed resistance to the US but in that case the US will just genocide them like they've done to pretty much every other group of natives.


Would there even be enough alaskan natives to carry out a major insurgency?

Shielding from thermal wise you just need some kind of barrier between you and the sensor. A space blanket works well because it insulates heat very well. Dirt or leaves or whatever work too though. Not sure what you would do clothing wise while you are on the move aside from try and avoid showing your silhouette conspicuously, same as with day time operations. But if you are In a trench or fighting position then cover your spot with something, Ive seen space blanket and fabric cover and leaves block IR from a drone completely. If you are sleeping in an unprotected shelter/bivouac wrap your whole self up in your bivvy sack or your sleeping bag if it's not too hot, and you can cover yourself in leaves or snow for camouflage and further heat signature isolating if you need it.

latest stuff I got
I have no clue, they were posted on the palestine threads, I'm just reuploading them here


In that last clip, what's that thing he puts on the tank?


It's a tandem-HEAT warhead from an RPG-7, only the rocket unit is detached. Probably has a delayed fuse. They use some of their spare warheads as sticky bombs essentially.

LOL I posted some of those too
