Historical images thread? Historical images thread
I have a fuckton of pics from different wars, mostly post-ww1, but there are a few ww1 ones as well.
Let me zip and upload, it would take too long to dump the folder
I'll still keep the thread bumped, but give me a few minutes to upload it
Upload started, estimated 6 minutes until finish
I should add, it isn't very organized
>You will never be in the Spetsnaz during the Chechen Wars
It will probably take longer with me dumping as well, but whatever
You guys want my "girls with guns" folder too?
Mostly military girls, so historical I guess, but just hnnnnggggg
Upload is at 50% by the way
>US Marines somewhere in the Pacific
not historical but the MIRV is pretty cool
US Cavalry during WW2
Notice the Garand in the sexy scabbard, almost gives it a cowboy feel
Good, that folder is over 160mb, I don't feel like uploading it right now anyway
The first confirmed execution of a Reddit user, circa 1940s, Germany
I have some Vietnam war pics, and maybe some ww2 somewhere.
Guys I've found my WW2 folder(it was called katawa shoujo for some reason), should I dump some pics, or should I stay with vietnam?
>You will never live in Rhodesia
Somebody let me know if the archive unpacks right and everything
Just noticed the guy on the right looks kinda like William Dafoe in "Platoon"
Well, like 95% of my pics are war related.
Dude, we really need a history board.
I'd spend probably like, 50% of my time there.
Not really historical but kinda, during the Boston bombing manhunt
I corrected myself, my bad
I really need to rename my folders one day.All the ww2 pics are in "katawa shoujo" folder, and katawa shoujo pics are in "ww2" folder...
We've been over this, it's a Yugo Mauser M48, which a German soldier shouldn't be carrying
This was like the first soldier to jump over to somewhere, I forgot the back story and now its bothering me.
>captcha: historical uencify
Maybe something to do with the Berlin Wall?
and of course one motherfucker looks into the camera
>high american officers or whatever investigating a captured tiger
Hitlerjugend SS panzerdivision, I think.
I should really name these better.
Soviets.That's all you need.
No problem m8
I didn't take the pic, it was posted on /k/ shortly after the manhunt
WW1 Armored Car trainings, not sure what country, not even sure if it's a Maxim MG or Vickers MG to be honest
They look pretty Soviet to me.Also, I thought Vickers MG and Maxim MG were practically the same.
Somebody let me know if my rar unpacked correctly and worked
That's what I thought, didn't wanna give incorrect information.
Vickers was based off of the Maxim, so yeah kinda
German parade at the streets of Paris
The tanks are captured french S-35 I believe.
I'll go and take a look, hope it's not scat porn or cp.
It's right in the post
Directly after the Boston bombing, the police were still looking for the one Chechen brother (whatever his name was)
They were using any means necessary to find him, including shooting into random citizen's houses and driving MRAPs around
I wouldn't risk a ban, I actually like this place
Colorized photo of a Finnish Soldier sometime during the Continuation War.
Pretty much my favorite picture of all time, from a REALITY old thread
No rounds were fired obviously. This isn't OC or anything. I remember this being posted by CNN or something, it was submitted by a reader i think.
Lol no, just regular Boston police iirc
Militarized police is a big thing in larger cities, look at what's been going on in Ferguson.
Right when it started, I remember seeing a picture of Ferguson police in an MRAP, with scoped rifles and full tacticool gear
I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's a soviet T-34-85 captured in Hungary in 1956.
What a glorious bastard it was!
It would be pretty stupid of germans to invade Argentina with french tanks, wouldn't it?
Acoustic mirrors to listen for approaching planes over the English Channel
Cops shot through some random guy's house, and hit his chair
3 Goliath tracked mines captured by british troops.
Very graphic .
Captured Soviet equipment at the start of Operation Barbarossa
USS Pennsylvania. One of the grandest looking WWII naval photos taken.
that one and this one are my faves.
This is Enceladus. A moon of I think Saturn. The things emanating from it are spouts of liquid water.
Imagine what it must have felt like to pilot one of those planes at that exact moment, looking down from the cockpit at the endless masses of fighter aircraft and huge battleships down below..
This is an interesting photo, A german Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. D halftrack captured by polish partisans during the Warsaw Uprising, 1944
Looks pretty dank.
I've ran out of pics I can say something about, the rest is just captured tanks 'n' shit.
oh yeah guys after searching for about five minutes i found a tank that looks cool than the tiger, and is more mechanically complex too!
Meet the Russian's Land Battle Ship, the T-35!
Actually no, here's one more.
Soviet soldier in the streets of Berlin, holding a PPSh-40, ZiS-3 in the background.
Unfortunate german soldier was equipped with a FG-42, a rifle mant to be used by paratroopers.
I might be wrong on something, though.
What happened when you got hit by 152mm of Stalin's HE Justice.
>We are the ATF
>We will burn down your ranch with your family inside, and then take pictures standing beside your corpses
>We ARE the law
semi-related, did anybody else know that the Germans and Russians both used explosive ammunition during WW2?
Not trying to sound high-and-mighty, I just didn't know how else to phrase it lol.
Mind the 15-second advert
This idea was pretty dumb, this tank was slow as fuck.
Would probably lose to Pzkpfw IV.
how about, soon to be dead germans?
Good idea anon. Also, cool newspaper article.
/b/ is, and always has been, awash with trolls and teenagers. A history board would limit the children and retards.
Honestly though /k/ is already kind of the de facto history board albeit the history of warfare.
Great idea all the same.
HMS Barham magazines explode
Yeah, /k/ is my main board already. That's why everything I've posted so far has been about wars and conflicts.
But if we had a /hist/ board, we would also have people coming from /lit/, /int/, /k/, and other boards
Somebody let moot in on this plan
Moving to vietnam war, no more interesting ww2 pics
Yeah, there wouldn't be much left if it was ISU-152 probably
Oh, well it looks cooler, gotta admit.
No one says it's not staged, many of the photoes were staged.Also I do not know the insignia and shit so thanks.
I know it was the ML-20S howitzer, but that was installed in both the SU and ISU. Since they were both just gun carriages, I don't think it matters which one it was.
Image - ISU-152 with ML-20S Howitzer. Go big or go home.
WW1 German Soldier demonstrating an improvised explosive made from Grenades, a so-called "Geballte Ladung".
WoTFag detected. They used the same gun. It's fairly impossible to tell which based on the cannon, as it was the same. That being said, many more ISU-152's were produced than SU-152s, to it's statistically more likely that it'd be an ISU
PS. Jagdpanther Master Race. Get Rec'd Commies
Anyone know the connection between the two?
Anyone connected the dots yet?
Swedish soldiers fighting in Kongo.
Note the SMG Bayonet carried by the man on the right, and the SMG itself as well as a water bottle laying in front of the loader of the MG (Which is a Ksp m42b, a licence built modification of the Browning 1919).
>mfw you can see his crispy well-done upper arm muscles
>tfw you'll never know how it's to destroy an american tank for the Fuhrer
Well, I dun goofed then.
I have only war-related stuff, sorry
They were wearing so many diamonds when they were shot, it acted as partial bulletproof vest, prolonging their deaths.
I hope they lived long enough to feel their cunts being groped.
Long enough to realise that their corpses will be desecrated by the cocks of their murderers.
Japanese float plane squadron based on the Alaskan island of Attu, 1942-'43
I have a lot more photos of the Aleutian campaign if any one is interested.
War creates many spectacular, impressive, awe inspiring images that invoke emotions. Everyday life, not so much, particularly when modern super resolution photos of every day things look so much better then the old stuff.
Image: Bismarck, firing on the soon to be sunk Hood.
I'm always interested in historical photos, pls more.
It was also a custom to loot bodies and take medals, and similar artifacts. Also not that he has no other gear on him, nor ammunition or even a camouflage smock, as would normally be carried in battle.
Anarchist militia women and improvised IFV, Spanish Civil War
American troops of the 7th Infantry Division approach their landing zone (Beach Red) near Holtz Bay, Attu, May 1943
It was a pleasure.
Will still dump until thread 404's
Or, until image limit is reached.
>tfw I've seen the mini-series so many times that when I read your post I had the same emotional reaction I get whenever someone shows me a photo of my old friends / people I used to know
It's definitely worth it, I went a few years ago for the Tankfest where they drive a large portion of their vehicles on a track. There's an annual event just for 131 as well, It's in May(?) next year.
