Why is the soundtrack in this Army training video so bumping? Everything from that error was funky smooth.

 No.1627

Teetering rotors are a cheap design and a bad choice for military helicopters. Only American military helicopters like the UH-1 used it. This is because military helicopters fly low and when climbing over the top of ridges (like in this video) they enter low G and can have mast bumping. This problem is solved with fully articulated rotors.

Jazz Fusion was popular during 70s and was progressively being refined in the 80s til smooth Jazz would develop in the 90s.

Finally bought my first handgun edition. Fingered every handgun they had in stock but this one had a nice fit in my hand and wasn't too pricey. Did I do good akm?

What's with random stamped bits on guns? Like the ridges on the dust cover, or the bits on the folding stock that have seemingly no use. Does it stop them bending/denting as easily or something like that?

Its usually for internal parts, kind of like handrails in a bus, keeps them in place better. The extra rivets on the folding stock are because it's actually several connective parts to the stock to make sure it's steady and doesn't bend. The ridges on the dustcover conform to the general outline of the firing mechanism.

>Well if your going to fighting a modern 1st world military state the most important thing you'd want to do is knock out their air force so you can run military operations in the open and cut off the opponents main advantages.
I had a dream where the American government was couped by a militarist faction and I had to help some dudes attack the local airbase and what I did was make a shit ton of rc planes that carried explosives to swarm the air base and knock out the fighters and bombers there. Idunno could work irl, I'm sure that some military force has tried that in the past somewhere.

Errors:

2. Recovery results in being tracked. No recovery results in delay.

Iron dome missiles are expensive, so all you need to do is fire lots of cheap decoys until they run out of missiles. Then fire your rockets with real warheads.

So what I don't get about these missiles is that they are undetected by RWR until their active stage ("going pitbull" as they call it), which only happens once the missile is already very close to its targeted aircraft, making dodging it very difficult. What I don't get is how does the missile guide itself towards its target before it becomes active? Why does it not trigger RWR during this period?

This makes a lot of sense, thanks for the explanation.

Uuugggggh here’s the simplest explanation

Microphones are gadgets that take in sound from a sound absorptive surface called a diaphragm that moves based off the vibration it receives that hits a coil triggering a vibration a circuit uses to produce sound whose volume is based off the amount of energy used up and the intensity of the vibration

Radars work a lot like microphones but they produce light or sound and take whatever object that signal hits back towards their diaphragm

Radar missiles are well missiles with radars equipped by them, these missiles are coated with light reflective material to ensure that any radar trying to detect their presence will have ejected light sent knocked off course which REDUCES not prevent the chances of a missile being detected. As a missile finds its target based off scans it comes closer into contact with potential radars increasing chances for detection and hence there’s your answer OP

They also use inertial guidance so the RWR doesn't go off.

True, but DFRM can fuck up the tracking

These weapons are made for the purpose of harming a large number of people, the contradiction they have as useful weapons of war is their purpose.
In most wars an army can be expected to deploy the lowest amount of troops and supplies possible as to ensure the lives of its soldiers are safe and the government it works for has surplus army supplies it can use to maintain its security over a state and the potential success of coming out victorious n future armed conflicts. WMDs contradict this basic behaviour by their own nature, if any armed conflict ever breaks out so violent that weapons that need to kill hundreds of thousands to millions need to be mass produced that represents a problem with how 2 or more armies are fundamentally approaching war and are said armies will have their governments invest in better infrastructure and machinery that can counter the effects of WMDs along with tools to make war less lethal as to ensure surplus troops. Evidence of this can be seen in the Cold War which saw an arms race to develop tech that could detect and down a nuke before it hits or launches like the internet and satellites, hazmat suits to counter radiation damage, or ww1 which saw the development of gas masks by garret morgan as a means to counter the effects of mustard gas and bio agents etc.
In conclusion WMDs are useless in warfare as the concept of a WMD itself contradicts the policies any properly maintained army would make to ensure its longevity and security in fulfilling its tasks, for every hypersonic ICBM developed there are radars made of reflective material detecting and sending missiles towards it before it can hit its target.

>for every hypersonic ICBM developed there are radars made of reflective material detecting and sending missiles towards it before it can hit its target.

Problem N°1 anti missile defense systems don't work. The data about performance in real world condition (actual combat) suggests that they even struggle against low speed, low altitude, low range unguided missiles. Expect that the 50% interception rate from synthetic tests will drop dramatically in an actual conflict.
Problem N°2 If they worked you'd need too many.
If your opponent has one ICBM you need a missile shield for every potential target. The more ICBMs your opponent has the larger the list of potential targets gets.
Problem N°3 war-heads that can subdivide into many small bombs.
Nukes can be made very small, and you can fit potentially hundreds or thousands of small nukes on a single ICBM, at this point statistics of large numbers take over, and getting a high interception rate is very unlikely, even if you had tons of effective missile defenses. Decoys will make this even harder.
Problem N°4 newer intercontinental missile systems that are already in service are not flying on ballistic trajectories, and it's not realistic to think that those can be intercepted by another missile, because without a predictable predetermined flight path, it's not likely that you can catch up to something going above Mach 5.

Once you can make lasers or directed particle stream weapon of sufficient power, this will change and anti missile defenses will become plausible, but not before.
