This thread is for appreciating this board's namesake by posting AKs in all their many forms.

>tfw will probably never own and AK
Unironically the 2nd amendment is probably the only thing I'm jealous about the US. Americans of /AKM/, cherish it. It genuinely has so much value and it bothers me so much that almost no other country on Earth is even close to the US when it comes to lax gun laws.

Ok, I'm going to make the dreaded question.
Could normal size mechas (like, 1.5 storey tall) be actually viable in warfare?

post yfw china makes mechs real


Seems extremely impractical. Realistically if there was a move away from wheels instead you would see crab like designs rather than bipedal humanoid designs due to their maneuverability.


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


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.

I have a P365XL for everyday carry. It's basically a straight upgrade to the Glock 19 in terms of size and concealability without getting into literal pocket pistol territory.


I was thinking about edc but I've seen too many webms of Glock leg. Should I try carrying with an empty chamber until I get over it?

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?

Doesn't really warrant a full thread so general questions thread I guess




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.


1. Get lots of drone parts in bulk identical to ones used in attack.
2. Recovery results in being tracked. No recovery results in delay.
3. RC planes can't carry much.


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.


Can someone redpill me ,are Gaza rockets any useful?


There's not much to hypothesize about, more rockets is the best advice one can give.

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.


>No amount of stealth technology can hide the target from active radar at close range.
True, but DFRM can fuck up the tracking

Check out your local craigslist. You'll find some good deals on Ukrainian AKs right now.


Canadacels be coping. Are AK and 5.45x39 imports allowed into America now?
