This is a normal tactic on protest sites. I'll probably be on a site with tunnels next month.
If you want to understand these things I Suggest you get on site and learn from experience.

Anarkyfriens have been building them over the UK. I recommend going to one of the anti HS2 sites to learn.
They're also good places to learn to spot undercovers for newer comrades as these camps are laughably overrun with the incompetent retards.

Hello,
What do we do with all of the rock from the peoples tunnels?

True volume:
8ft diameter and 1 Kilometer Long = ~19,000 m^3
19,000 m^3 means a cone of 54 meters radius and a height of 6 meters

Location:
River and water: Bad
Landscaping: Quantity
Walls: One can only explain so much rock.
Art: Way to much is extracted.

 No.1543

Don't forget that those Soviet MPL-50s can be used as a weapon in a last ditch situation.

DPRK is full of massive tunnel networks, they get brought up quite a bit when the Americans are whining about nukes.
Kek I just searched it and there are a bunch of articles on it, but this wikipedia article is even better:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_Tunnel_of_Aggression
>A total of four tunnels have been discovered so far, but there are believed to be up to twenty more.[7] The South Korean Armed Forces still devotes specialist resources to finding infiltration tunnels, though tunnels are much less significant now that North Korean long-range artillery and missiles have become more effective.[8]
They're living the moleman dream.

what Hezbollah does in their stretch of territory is even more impressive, they have veritable fucking fortresses built underground across the entirety of Southern Lebanon. i think more and more people are gonna realize that 2006 Lebanon war was the first conflict that would indicate how 21st century conventional shit might play out, even though it was extremely limited in scope. It´s very similar to the Viet Cong underground battle tunnels.

What is the viability of using shorthandle shovels from the hardware store to dig a fighting position? I've used one to dig fire pits and the like but it seems a little bulky to carry around on a pack

Throw this into Desmos to calculate Tunnel Size.

What's the best way to support a tunnel? I'm talking sandy ground here, should I put up plywood at the top or will it keep itself stable at some depth?

 No.2412

>>2411
The easiest way to make a tunnel is to bury drainage culverts.

 No.2418

>>2412
I guess, good call. Could be hard to do if it's not a trench dig. Could buy some cheapo metal pipes and cut them in half maybe, bring them in as parts and weld them together inside.

 No.2420

>>2411
First, get a license for building tunnels, otherwise feds will get mad or/and the tunnel will collapse, wood works fine, although we aren’t XIX century Asturian miners, so steel is better

Glad I don't live in a federation. I'm thinking about doing it this secluded area, it's near (few kilometers away) a highway but the road and trails leading to it aren't even on a map since they were cut for logging before they started to pay attention to them. I checked all the hiking sites and no one has come within a few dozen kms of it, even went on a bike ride there on a few days and nobody was around. I guess I will try to tank as much information on tunnel digging from books (and take a course of some kind of digging related thing if possible), also thinking it'll propably need a tarp around the top for extra protection of the metal.

 No.2422



Damn, we had a fort like this as kids. We dug a big trench, put crossbeams then scrap plywood then plastic tarp, then ripped pieces of lawns from people's yards and put them on top. Stealth bros. Filled it with pieces of carpet and old cushions. So good, just a really homely pneumonia trap.

I would honestly love to build a better one today. There are pictures of some recently built hobbit holes online. They looked really nice tbh, they were excavated into the side of a hill. Totally liveable.

Don't think I'll have a conveyor out in the woods, maybe a pulley system with buckets could do. Dump it in the local creek on a few km stretch should hide the evidence, or make a trail to some hole I've seen there. Will have to buy a cart in any case.

Thanks. I don't think mine will be as big as the figures have :(

Microtunnel boring machines can tunnel up to 60 feet an hour and if you don't mind crouching, they would be great for a tunnel network. Instead of crouching, you could install mine carts in the tunnels, that would be based.

They're as cheap as $45,000 on Alibaba, but that probably doesn't include everything to run it. Others are about $100,000, which isn't bad if you're sharing it with a group of people.

Hello, tech guy here. I had a professor tell us about surprise expenses in a Information Systems Course.

The surprise expenses:
1. Manuals and Training
2. Replacement parts
3. Upgrades that you did not think you would need.
4. More cooling and storage than expected.

Just hire them like any sane person does, paperless labor saves the enviroment. I would imagine a boring machine would have about the same effect as well, even if nobody talks the chances of you getting on a list increase.
