Thoughts? There isn't much material over it on youtuber, but from what I gather, it's a materialist approach to warfare.
Instead of the classical Prussian doctrine of encirclement, deep operations focuses on breaking through to the back line and destroying communications and supply lines, which greatly help other areas of the line besides your own immediate victory, which the blitzkrieg focused on.

is this the military doctrine based off of genghis khan's general


>Russia derived the most use out of a careful study of the Mongol campaigns. Their closer proximity to the steppe gave them greater interest and access to the Mongolian campaigns, first analyzed by the Russian General Mikhail Ivanin in the 19th century, which became a recommended text in the Russian military academies up until the mid 20th century. Ivanin's work became used in the Deep Battle doctrine developed by Soviet Marshal Mikhail Tukhachevsky, Mikhail Frunze, and G. S. Isserson. Deep Battle doctrine bore a heavy resemblance to Mongol strategic methods, substituting tanks, motorized troop carriers, artillery, and airplanes for Mongol horse archers, lancers, and field artillery. The Red Army even went so far as to copy Subutai's use of smokescreens on the battlefield to cover troop movements. Later in the 20th century, American military theorist John Boyd and some of his followers used Genghis Khan and Subutai's campaigns as examples of maneuver warfare.

Yeah, the horse question was a big problem for red army.
Some generals were very attached to the cavalry and fought every attempt to modernize with tanks and other armored vehicles.



Let's not exagerrate the scale of the problem here. While it is true that Stalin's base of support in the Red Army was the "Cavalry Clique", the one who really resolutely opposed modernization was Budyonny, who had a big voice because he was a civil war hero.

Ignoring that, the territory of the USSR favoured cavalry heavily, and this was helped by the offensive doctrine of the Red Army. In the civil war, where echelon warfare failed, it was up to the cavalrymen with their sabres to exploit breakthroughs and cause morale shocks. It worked, which is why the Cavalry Clique came to the forefront in the first place. And before the rapid industrialization, it was only a dream to convert all soviet cavalry corps to motorized units let alone tanks. By WW2 most cavalry usefulness was gone, but we should note that Italian cavalry managed to defeat a soviet force 3 times their size due to their cavalry patrols noticing the Soviet unit and giving the initiative to the Italians.

if there's ever any legitimate reason to Arm Up As A Leftist you won't need anyone to tell you that and there'd be no reason to post about it online






Don't ever post about stuff you specifically are doing. Unless it's anonymously recounted activities relevant to what you are discussing. Even then keep this to TOR and use proper opsec and do it as little as necessary. Sharing knowledge and encouraging other leftists to research this knowledge is important praxis however. There will come a time when knowledge of weaponry and combat will make the difference between life and death for a leftist and victory or defeat.

I don't think this was ever particularly difficult to do it's just highly illegal to do lol. Same reason all these things are closed bolt. Still at least it's something new, I'm fucking weary of a gazillion 22LR guns.
I think a really cool illegal project would be a select fire SKS. The Yugoslav Wars had some put together in machine shops with a few adjustments so it can't be that difficult, although you'd probably want something to limit the fire rate.

No more guns for Canadiens. Pretty big news isn't it?

>All rifles are now illegal and will be bought back

>Ownership of handguns still legal but sale illegal, probably will be made illegal shortly.

registration equals confiscation
also look up cnc mills, you can produce shitty ones with a 3d printer and basic materials and they may suffice for making an upper reciever and you can the rest in 3d printed plastic with like a wood or polymer (handmade or injection molded) stock


If they didn't ban any new ones recently then there is a ton of good ones available still although registration for all sales is baaaaaaad news


ok so this way they can ban basically all rifles without having to admit they're banning all rifles. clever


all semi-auto anyways

but in the future i guess they could ban the rest of the guns. they could say bolt actions of high calibre are dangerous, they could say shotguns are dangerous. ban anything of high calibre period. and in the end we'll be left with single shot .22lr lever actions only. and then they can ban those easily too. since everyone will have to get the gun registered it will be easy to force laws that make people hand over their guns or face punishment and confiscation anyways.

>canadians continue to be limpdick liberals
Can't spell CanUCK without CUCK


I'm in Ohio, and I'm going to pride with my family. I'm worried about shit like idaho happening where I'm going. shitheads pictured

former military, but it's been a bit since I've shot. do plan on shooting again and familiarizing myself again.

Ohio allows concealed pistols now with no license

what should I buy?

money is not a major concern, was thinking about shit like ruger 9mm ofc. may also go with an ar15 as it's easy to find.

The problem with an AR tho is that it'll freak out the normies carrying it openly.

and freak ppl out



Yea was thinking about just going ar. the whole point of this is to be armed for pride in my backwater shithole so getting an ar just to lock it up for pride is dumb.

So was just thinking about getting a smaller handgun, which I had as a side arm when I was in. so I should be good, just want something smaller then I had when I was in.

I'll just go with a compact 9mm and conceal I think.


probably a good idea


Don't, you'd only shoot yourself with that

Check out the new Rheinmetall tank, it has the new 130mm L51 cannon https://www.reddit.com/r/MilitaryPorn/comments/vb9awg/new_rheinmetall_kf51_tank_equipped_with_130mm/


LMAO they've been talking about that 130mm canon for years on end, yet another demo gun on a "next gen tank" that isn't going to reach production anytime soon because it is BEYOND cost-prohibitive, it's unfeasible in the current economic climate.


I should've clarified, this isn't actually a "new" tank; the only thing that is new is the turret and the cannon, but it's mounted on a Leo2A4 chassis. The new tank will eventually have a new chassis.


the good: down in weight, up in speed, more armor and defense gadgets, auto-loader, it looks fierce
the bad: meme gun , even bigger turret (soon it'll be as big as the lower half)

The bigger gun means less ammo, and it means overhauling logistics, this is design for profit, not design for combat. It makes all the old stuff incompatible and that causes more military contracts down the line. To justify a huge tube you have to make it do artillery trajectories as well. IMHO the real scifi move is to pack more energy into a smaller projectile.

It's also a software defined tank, so this could mean it's super flexible, or proprietary software hell that makes soldiers download a software-crack so that they can enable all the features of the tank. When circumventing DRM means life.

It's got drone stuff too i don't really have much of an opinion on that, the reconnaissance stuff makes sense, drone weapons however are long range and they could just be loaded into a normal truck, long range stuff doesn't need armor or a tracked vehicle.


Looks kinda goofy


So best small-arms ==> Russian
Best aircraft ==> American
Best tanks ==> ? (we can discuss this itt since it's probably the most controversial and divisive topic)
And for others;
Best drones?
Best missiles? (tactical or otherwise)
Best electronic warfare?
Feel free to add any other category of military technology to discuss which country has the best of it


Most categories will just be toss-ups between the USA and Russia since they both have the institutional knowledge to produce all modern weapons. The exception is tanks and tracked howitzers since Germany does both pretty good.

If you want to have more contenders, you need to go more niche. Best corvette, frigate, attack and transport helicopter can be contested by Europe. Best light anti-tank rocket and anti-tank guided missiles can also be contested by multiple countries as can best APC (tracked or wheeled) and best IFV

Hey /AKM/, what do you think of my new neck knife?

humblebrag thread


I was considering learning martial arts since guns for self defence are illegal in my cunt but I reckon a knife would do the trick, thoughts?




Can I suck your dick?


dfkgjdflkgdfkgdf holy shit pls top me


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.

It's because they've been doing firearms research for forty years under the guise of an M16/M4 replacement program. The only difference now is that Milley is the first guy in 40 years to be tired of the wasteful spending. Hell, the guy advocated just giving every soldier a Glock 19 because it's cheaper than testing out a new modular pistol.

"We're not figuring out the next lunar landing. This is a pistol. Two years to test? At $17 million? You give me $17 million on a credit card, and I'll call Cabela's tonight, and I'll outfit every soldier, sailor, airman and Marine with a pistol for $17 million. And I'll get a discount on a bulk buy."

It's an expensive program to be certain, but $150 million for the first year of production is less than 0.02% of the US military annual budget, and only gets cheaper once the rifles are in service and ammo is in large-scale production.

Most of all, I think a lot of the opposition to it is simply because the M16/M4 has been around forever. I'm old enough to where my dad would tell me about how he hated "that goddamn plastic Mattel piece of shit," but now after decades of improvements nobody in the general public even remembers that we ever used anything else.


> 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."


Feel free to make some extra larpy fluff while in it.

Yes, i shamelessly stole this idea from a /k/ thread i saw once. Sue me.
