Or would it depend on what environment you are talking about here? Would the blades on the left side perhaps be better in tight spaces where not much of a swing is possible?

When it comes to melee defense if its the only option somebody has, most conclusions or discussions on martial arts have narrowed down the two most effective to be either the leaf blade vs the gladius. Blade length being up to 40-ish anything to smaller 50s at most?

With the most effective maintenance oil being 3-in-one + Metal Glo for polishing when it comes to steel/wrought iron.

Rapiers would only be useful in places like gardens or very long spaces, idk about a cutlass however.

If your country bans blades, you are left with the axe or spear.

Can a physically weak person also get an advantage over 1 - 2 physically strong people attacking them if that is the only thing they can use?


Random blade things.

Brass knuckles, polyester slaps, CBRN


Whichever one is longer and whichever fighter is able to handle blood loss better. You're going to get cut.
>If your country bans blades, you are left with the axe or spear.
Blades should always only ever be a backup. Spears are king.


Today, the United States is among a number of nations working to develop and field advanced directed energy weapons, or lasers, for a number of military applications.

Near the end of the Cold War, the Soviet Union began experimenting with the idea of fielding a laser-equipped tank that could blind the targeting systems of inbound ballistic missiles or vehicles. Ultimately, two prototypes of the laser-armed 1К17 Сжатие, translated to “Compression,” were built, though they weren’t complete until the Soviet Union fell and was replaced by the new government of the Russian Federation.

Today, the United States is among a number of nations working to develop and field advanced directed energy weapons, or lasers, for a number of military applications. The U.S. Air Force recently announced its intentions to begin fielding lasers on their fighter platforms as soon as 2025, and the U.S. Navy began testing its latest laser, the MK 2 MOD 0, aboard the USS Portland in May of this year. But decades before these programs came to light, the Soviet Union was already exploring the idea of using lasers as a means of missile defense.

The Soviet strategy wasn’t to use these lasers to destroy incoming missiles like the applications in development today intend to. Instead, the Soviet laser tank aimed to blind or burn out the electro-optical sensors missiles used to find their targets. Once blinded or damaged, a missile would miss its intended target, whether that was the 1K17 or other nearby assets. Other planned applications included using the laser apparatus to blind heavy vehicles like tanks, making it impossible for them to aim and fire accurately.

>Flags like, it's a flag, but attached to a relatively thick wooden stick
like the ones our Greek comrades like to carry in the front rears of their demonstrations
as you can see they're also big into motorcycling


fashoids will never attack an org meeting cause they are opportunistic druggies ,they will either muster forces and attack an antifascist rally in hopes of coming out of it as the victims or a random girl handing out leaflets putting up posters , you will very rarely get into a pre planned fight with a fasch

Security:put up a large guy or two in the door ,same thing in a public meeting make sure you have enough guys to defend yourself and lookouts


My first thought will be to evaluate the risks, and prepare defense against the most plausible ones.
Why would fascists be the first one to attack?
I would think the government would be, that's how it rolls here anyway.


Flag is too large

Is an AR-15 the best rifle to get if you're looking to arm yourself? I know it's incredibly popular in the US, but I'm not sure how much of that is just people trying to operator larp.

- Cheap ammo
- Ample parts
- Easy to use

- Complex
- Low powered round
- High-profile sights

Gore is allowed provided it is spoiler-ed, thread relevant, and you give some indication as to it's content.


The other obvious advantage to shotguns for personal defense is that buckshot will not over-penetrate as much as most pistol rounds


Rittenhouse used bargain bin FMJ rounds when he installed a goatse on that guy's arm. And as someone else said they blown out knee was from a military round, most likely m193 FMJ. The velocity of 5.56 allows it to cause some nasty wounds due to fragmentation and hydro-static shock




>but realistically, when will someone get struck by a 9mm and keep chugging

This happens far more often than you might think. Handgun rounds simply don't have enough kinetic energy to reliably stop assailants when struck in non-vital organs.

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

Forgive for having a thread based on a 4chan screenshot (bleh) but I would very much like to discuss this topic because matt christman also brought this issue up in one of his vlogs.

soviets and red chinese go full yolo in 1950: what happens?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I lost the .pdf but there's a US intelligence document from directly after WW2 outright stating the Soviets very well have the capability to overrun Europe to the Atlantic to little or no resistance, but they speculate they're avoiding doing so due to concerns about their capability to hold said territory in the long term.


Remember that most of the anti-axis resistance in Europe at the time were loyal communists. Actually after WW2 the French resistance kept asking the Soviets for permission to revolt. But the Soviets by that point had pretty much abandoned world revolution and were doing what they could to try and maintain peace with the capitalist world.


Pretty much this
While, yes, the Soviets very well could have won the Cold War by heating it up early, you have to remember these are pretty much pipe dreams and alt-history scenarios. Stalin's main concerns at the time were to cuck to the Allies at every turn, not world communism. Even in Eastern Europe, what would later become the Warsaw Pact was more of a proxy zone to secure every potential route into the USSR in case of an invasion.
The way the USSR could have won the Cold War would have been to avoid it entirely along with WW2, if things had gone a little bit different in Warsaw, 1920 we'd be living in a completely different timeline.


>prepare for world war III by 1950

How much could the Soviets do in that time while recovering from the 2nd world war tho?

The question is to win the Cold War so maybe they don't have to sweep all of mainland Europe but just enough to where the Capitalist powers would be weakened and eventually fall, idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


> they get nuked to shit.
In 1950 the USA barely had a couple A-bombs, and the only plane capable of carrying them were special B-29s that had a modified bomb bay. That is in part the reason for initial nuclear attack plans of the USA to be canceled. That's not to mention that the B-29s were fodder for the MiG-15, and the MiG-15 v F-86 air combat had the MiG coming out on top 3/4s of the time. The only problem in the 4chan post is that the USSR itself was not ready to fight a sustained, multi-front war like that, and definitely not China, or is everyone forgetting the impact of WW2 on those 2 countries.

The snipe in the 4chan post about popular front vs united front is ignorant, as the reason popular front got utilized is because most revolutionary states not in the WARSAW Pact were Asian & Latino countries that had markedly lower development and differing culture. The USSR supported grass roots movements across the globe, NATO countriess like the USA, UK & France crushed many like Guatemala, Malaysia, Pakistan and attempted the same in Korea, Vietnam & Cuba.

>after WW2 the French resistance kept asking the Soviets for permission to revolt

> Stalin's main concerns at the time were to cuck to the Allies
His main concerns were to rebuild the country and get it back on its feet, something that a multi-front war was incompatible with. Not to mention that the people were tired of war.
>avoid it entirely along with WW2
