This leftypol is intriguing. It seems some people ere being referred to my blogsite from here. I am looking for ways to beat the shadow ban and get some traffic.

My latest act of bloggery, related to warfare, is found at https://yaxls.wordpress.com/2022/08/19/get-ready-for-world-war-two-and-a-half/ I think we are about to have another world war, but it will be a pretty feeble one, as world wars go.

I have other topics, too.

See video I attached.
An aluminum backer is superior to nylon or bullet resistant fabric like kevlar or aramid. It also remains rigid after impact to prevent energy transfer to the backface (you) and deflect spall away from the impace site. IMO the ideal is, from the back:
outer vinyl weather resistant layer->jute or denim->high strength aluminum->denim or jute+epoxy binder (lightweight as it gets very heavy proportionately to increased armour capability)->ceramic->denim/jute->tense lightweight wire grid (to bind the front of the plate together tighter to the back of the plate keeping the plate together better after impact and increasing performance)->jute/denim spall layer->outer vinyl weather resistant layer
I have discovered in my research that a softer jute/denim material is actually superior to bullet resistant fabric for dispersing the energy of a ballistic impact as well as being much cheaper, more available and lighter. I need to read more however as I am not sure if it would suffice as an anti-spall layer in the front and possibly back although it appears to do so for the model in vid linked. I'm also not sure what padding or anti spall layer if any may be needed behind the aluminum backface for regular and reliable wear. The clay seemed fine behind a ceramic/denim/aluminum plate and multiple shots from greentip increased penetration 5.56 NATO at atleast a III+ level, however I am not sure of how real use would hold up and under different and repeatable circumstances. The metal wire layer I have only read about in research for Australia's ceramic vehicle armour where it was very effective. I am not sure how it could be used for personal armour but IMO the principle is the same. Perhaps a plastic like high strength nylon would work.


Skyscrapers use sprinklers in event of CBRN that are outside of the building.

1. Google Navy Nuclear Bomb Sprinklers
2. "No one will tell you which buildings…No one will tell you what weapon they’ve been designed to defend against, but some of them have been voluntarily designed to be better able to resist such events." https://youtu.be/4eE8d94qGPo?t=540


What are some good not expensive cut resistant gloves that look and feel basically like ordinary gloves? Would be good for trying to grab a knife away from someone…or gardening. Likewise what about a shirt? Is there any use in it being slash resistant when they arent stab resistant? I could see it being useful on arms and the neck which is where people tend to slash more not stab but not sure the body is just adding needless extra cost.

You can't shoot someone in the head with an IR laser.


If they are actually making savings, and have several hundred dollars, they can simply save for longer to buy a better gun. You are arguing that someone who has at least a couple hundred bucks should dump it immediately on a shit gun and I am arguing that if you can save $200, you can wait a bit to save $400 and buy a non shit gun.

You claim that "no one should ever not have a gun", well, the people who are on here considering buying their first gun don't have a gun, and they've made it thus far in life. One would expect that they could go a little longer without a gun and get a decent one rather than buying some dogshit hi point for half the price.

Your argument makes even less sense when you factor in ammo costs, because if you are training even semi regularly your ammo costs are going to be more expensive than your gun pretty quickly. So let's say you spend $200 on a hi point and then $300 on 1000 rounds of ammo, or you drop $400 on a real pistol and $100 on ~300 rounds. Same cost overall between the two. I can fucking promise you that someone with 300 rounds on a p10c or springfield xd will outshoot someone with a thousand rounds on a hi point. Hell, you can have ten thousand rounds on that hi point and they'll still outshoot you.

You are seriously suggesting that someone buys a SINGLE STACK BLOWBACK PISTOL with an EIGHT ROUND magazine capacity and God knows how bad a trigger, over an actual decent pistol, to skip a few months of saving or get a few hundred extra rounds of ammo. You are STUPID uygha. And at that point you might as well buy a god damn revolver from a pawn shop because it'll be better quality and you'll only miss TWO rounds jesus christ. Fuck off noguns larper.


This man speaks the truth. Although if you are going to get a cheap dot, please at least get a nicer one like a Holosun or something. There's no point buying an actual airsoft red dot because it's going to cost you at least a hundred bucks to get your slide milled for an optic regardless so you're not saving that much proportionate to the total cost.

This is from 2015 but still useful, prices have gone up a bit for all of these tho


the windicator is usually sold with a 4 inch barrel now and the snub nosed variant is really hard to find


Gonna start a thread on this since I just found something cool I want to share, will post it as a reply.

Tips on buying thermal optics and shielding myself from them? Is it even possible?

This thread is talking about optics and vision. Lets sneak in some AI.

Computer Vision Algorithms can Recognize Camo.

It is trained on civilian vs military vehicles.

We have very light Persistent Monitoring & ISR.
My theory is ISR gets integrated into every vehicle should it ever get cheap and the data stream manageable as most won't leave RAM.


Good idea.
>We have very light Persistent Monitoring & ISR.
>My theory is ISR gets integrated into every vehicle should it ever get cheap and the data stream manageable as most won't leave RAM.
ISR? And what do you mean light? Like low level monitoring and lightweight resources or weight wise? Do you mean trackers that keep tabs on friendly vehicles for battle space management or do you mean have optics and brains running detection programs in every vehicle for ID and targeting? Beaming that back to a central location?


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.

Your biggest concern is going to be moisture.


Over 6 feet deep is a base requirement for animal seekers, that's the reason corpses are buried at 6ft, originally, so that critters can't smell 'em to unbury them.


well there's detectors that can literally tell you what's under the ground so potentially yes.


Why would people be sweeping this area specifically? But yeah GPR can go pretty deep.




Is there any organizational model that can withstand "totalitarianism" and/or martial law. Is it possible for a group to function and carry out low-level clandestine operations in a completely hostile environment? Have there been any examples of groups that were never penetrated by security in history? U've heard some anons suggest secret societies and cell- based movements. I would suggest a movement of singular individuals unknown to each other with a vague idea guiding them. But how do you spread such an idea? I'd like to hear other anon's thoughts.

Some vague goal isn't good enough. What are you planning on doing?

Anyone who knows of the secrets to such a thing would never reveal it on a mongolian basketweaving forum.


kinda sounds like how the more militant anarchists organize which is great for running a low level guerilla war against ur local police(see cop city or Athens) but won't really build a base or dual power outside of small areas


two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead

>At roughly $127, the Cobra Arms Freedom . 380 was the least-expensive newly manufactured firearm in the US today. The pistol is wholly made and assembled in the USA (Utah), and each one comes with a lifetime warranty that follows the gun from owner to owner.
Why arent ameicans giving these to homeless people? You could drop off these and ammo on different spot for safety. Why are communists not arming the most desperate proletarians in america when its legal? Suburban kids wont do shit they never will but these people have nothing to lose.

>stalin's revolution
Which one would that be lmao


clearly this is a fed post. sage.


Yes. Or plastic and about a million easy to aquire steel or aluminum solutions that would work better. Or high temperature, high strength plastics like PEEK I think might work for a decent barrel.


oh yeah I've used PEEK for some stuff and it seems strong enough to handle lower pressure cartridges. main problem is that it doesn't do high temperatures


>main problem is that it doesn't do high temperatures
Yeah. Could the interior be coated with a less heat sensitive material somehow? I guess in the end you would run into the same problems as with more traditional materials, with overheating of the barrel causing warp.
Not sure what the most accessible material for a decent barrel would be. Perhaps casting or using electrolysis to rifle a suitable piece of steel?

Alright, so I won't go too much into it, but as I'm sure you've all noticed, there is a distinct lack of competent organizations and combat readiness in the left. While it may just be a stereotype, the idea of the skinny and weak anarchist can sum up most of the left that wishes to engage in direct action, mostly by using outdated manuals and romanticized ideas of war. As such, I had, a few years ago, taken it upon myself to release training videos to some of you in order to get you up to speed on the basics of the basics. That, unfortunately, seems to have fallen through on the account of my job, which often has me traveling and doing other things that I won't go into because they are totally uninteresting and unrelated to the topic at hand. As such, we will go into a few key steps you should be taking in order to prepare yourself for introductory training, should it ever be offered to you. Yes, you read that correctly, you must train yourself to be trained. You do not have the luxury of being part of an organized military force, though I would not critique you if that is the route you are wanting to take, as it would be hypocritical. I will limit the topic to individual training, equipment, and self-selection because the whole of military science is a broad topic that is not wholly known by any one individual. Please understand this so that my limitations do not become a hindrance to your growth as a potential combat soldier. Seek training from experienced individuals, even if you have to hide your power level. Consider me just another voice on the internet. I do not intend to use credentials or authority on the subject to get you to do as I say, but I would appreciate it if you thought about a few things. Thank you for reading.

How thorough will inspection of my body be my military doctors? I have a bunch of burn marks (all of which could be tattooed over fairly easily) but mainly I have a significant amount of self harm cuts on my thighs, right next to where my balls touch I guess. I'm aware that previous psychological issues are grounds for dismissal, so I'm wondering if this is something I need to address before, i.e find ways to make scars less noticeable/covered, or if they won't get seen.


i'm not a leftist you faggot



This is ok advice but not great, I want to make note of the gulf wars as one gap frequently noted in the Americans arsenal was the 500-1 mile range

American assault rifles where incapable of putting effective fire on targets in that range, but you know what wasn't? Bolt action rifles used by the Taliban.

A common tactic of the Taliban as such was to just pitch up snipers in mountains and have them take pot shots at people within that ranging then fucking run, rinse repeat.

Know your enemy

Thanks man. Scan anything here before opening it.


The only useful thing I can figure about them is that they make it harder to identify where the source of gunfire is coming from(assuming the shooter is far away enough from whatever they’re shooting at). I believe this because I’m aware that the Doppler effect would make it obvious to anyone near the shot that someone’s firing even if a suppressor did a good enough job a drowning out the source of the shot and most don’t even do that. The only other reason I can think of for making these is for ear protection but then again why not just wear plugs?

>The only other reason I can think of for making these is for ear protection but then again why not just wear plugs
to maintain communication and awareness


There are 3 sources of sound produced by firearms:
1.Muzzle gas and sound escaping the chamber through the barrel. Usually second loudest sound
2.The sound of the bullet breaking the sound barrier. Usually loudest sound. (lower when the air is a colder temperature, important for selecting loadings).
These two cover 90->99 percent of all firearm sound
3.Action of the gun.
A semi-automatic or automatic firearm tends to produce noise as it cycles the actiob, stripping a spent case out, inserting a new bullet, firing pin hitting the primer to fire the bullet.

Now how about we make a silent firearm?

Firstly, a suppressor slows down the expansion of gas from the barrel of the gun.

Secondly, a subsonic bullet, heavier, sometimes less powder loaded, is made to travel lower than the speed of sound.
Now already we are quiet enough to fire undetected from a distance, depending on the sound of the action, we are quieter than a whisper or quieter than your friend yelling to you across the room.

If we want to make it trully silent? Bolt action. A smooth bolt action will be undetectable to the human ear. A suppressed bolt action .22 rifle will be so quiet that you won't know it fired until you see the bullet hole. You can fire next to someone's ear and they will have no idea, you can sit down and clear the room you are in with well placed aim and the only sound will be bodies hitting the floor. Quieter than a knife. Trully silent. Even semi-automatic .22 rifles firing subs can be effectively silent. May take some tweaking with swapping out the bolt or trigger group depending on the rifle to get complete silence. Ruger 22 takedown is an excellent example. The implication is that you can have as an American, as in many other countries, a maneuverable, lightweight, semi-automatic rifle that can be broken down and reassembled in 5 seconds to fit in a small bag or backpack or in a coat flask pocket which is completely silent and can reliably kill within 200-300 metres with good aim and and decent optics, entirely legal and unregulated except for the supressor, which is a form and a year long wait and a tax stamp or otherwise extremely easy to construct and conceal from a wide variety of materials in temporary or permanent constructions. A water bottle and duct tape will work great for one or two shots as shown in Chechnia.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


And before you ask, yes you can "silence" larger calibre military rifles. The soviet's even made a modular AKSU (7inch barrel ak74) with suppressed subsonic ammo paired with a silenced grenade launcher. Yes you heard that right, silenced'. The special grenades were designed as sneak attack sabotage weapons to destroy key infrastructure and electronics as well vulnerable vehicles such as parked aircraft and missile launchers. Soviet commandos would close in on installations like radar arrays and nuclear facilities, even behind enemy lines, fire their grenades based around IIRC graphite based payload and EMP, as well as HE and fragmentation grenades, then immediately withdraw undetected as the grenades fly to their targets. Another cool nearly silent weapon, VKS, Vyhklop (exhaust) Silenced. Russian 12.7mm suppressed sniper rifle designed for the MDV. It can fire subsonic or supersonic bullets, the supersonics with the big suppressor are only about as much recoil as a standard intermediary rifle shooting supers of a much smaller caliber. Subsonic load is effective out to nearly 800 metres if memory serves correct. Can be used to hit targets behind light cover and to penetrate lightly armoured vehicles such as APCs.


No one said anything about large weapons being unsuppressable just that it’s hard to block out the noise made by guns


It's not that hard at all if you are shooting subsonic ammunition, which is easy to make from supers or loading from scratch. Just stick a can on it or tape a PET bottle on the end and that is most of the noise blocked.

Not much of a military fag but was the USSR not even a horde? You always see it portrait as such in the movies that the USSR was a horde of people while the nazis were elite and superior but outnumbered

le leftypol infographic


Obviously it wasn't a horde. Worth noting though that that info graphic was made by an actual schizo who thinks that the Germans lost 4 million men in 1941 because Stalin said so in a speech lmao. Vid related is an actually competent debunking of the "Red Asiatic Horde" myth.


The Nazi ruling class were capitalist and anticommunist, the Soviet ruling class were communist and anti-capitalist. The "Western" ruling class is capitalist and anticommunist and sympathized much more with the Nazis than the Soviets, it even rescued and employed the Nazis after the war to help fight Communism. The west had a need to portray the nazis as stronger and superior but doing a naughty by invading Western Europe and all the heinous genocide and torture and shit that went public. This needed to portray the Soviet Union as having a twisted pipe dream that sounds seductive and maybe even some of you guys think what they're saying doesn't sound that bad but look what happened to the people when they trusted those commies, they had no weapons or technology or strategy, they just had to throw bodies at the naughty nazi ubermensch to defeat them because communists just treat their citizens like flesh sacks.
The western capitalists liked the nazis and fascists, they appreciated their work in putting down communists and worker's movements all across Europe. The people hated them because of how much pain and misery and death they caused, an entire generation of men or more wiped out in many countries. If the western people knew it was the Soviets that defeated the nazis almost single handedly that would cast communism in a much different light. Nor could the Western capitalists fawn over the nazis, for obvious reasons. So what ended up happening was that the achievements of the Soviet's was understated, their war effort twisted to make them look like savage barbarians and the nazis were cast as the sophisticated and powerful elite force of evil that was bad but also really strong and cool. The western capitalists used the actual barbarity of the nazis when it suited them and overshadowed it with shit like wehraboo fetishism in the media at other times. They also secretly supported and bankrolled underground neonazis and quietly installed the old nazis back into governments in West Germany, the EU, NATO, and several American Domestic agencies, even the intelligence agencies of Israel after the war, and this process applied to fascists all over Europe and Asia. Capital wants you to admire the Nazis and hate the Soviets but not know just how cozy they were.


Dumb question but good for you for having the balls to ask.
This too.


Good question newfriend
