Southeastern Turkey, PKK-Govt clashes. This year PKK started operating in urban areas so govt closes down parts of cities with very strict curfews and does, well this kind of stuff. From human rights perspective it's terrible.
The talk between the operators:
-Come on, guy with the gun, get out.
-They are kids?
-No, they are not, they're grown up men.
-Grown up men with stuff in their hands.
-Hah! One down
-Shoot his legs
-Okay, don't kill just the legs
-Dude it's blown it's enough.
-There's another one. He has a grenade.
-3 down. Ok.
-Boss, we should take them, they might die.
-Dude, don't shoot, it's enough.
-We recorded it sir, 2 men with hand grenades and one with a rifle neutralized.
-Stop stop, don't kill.
-Don't kill, he'll die by himself.
Also I might add this thermal camera videos really do the trick for me. I exactly understand what the world is when I watch them. ISIS and similar groups pretending that they're all powerful but they're just dots on screen scratched after a successful autozeroing function is executed. This really makes me question the psychology behind joining these organizations.
From the other side, it's just high school educated people deciding who gets to live, while perpetuating the status quo in armament race. Which is exactly why I watch TOW videos to balance this.
1945. Look closely at the east side of Baltic sea. That little spot that was held by axis. Never got taken by USSR, because Latvians were not figtinhg for axis, they just happened to have the same enemy: USSR. I am so proud of my ancestors. Fuck USSR and this so called 'Russian federation' (which is just cheeky renamed USSR)
Well, it is still a remarkable achievement from army that had been outnumbered to hold out for that long.
>Also, my 91 year old grandma told me that soviets killed our only horse that our family had, which makes wishing to kill them all reasonable.
Seriously, i am okay to see people gatting shot in 'rekt' treads, but horse... Why horse? Proof that soviets were monsters.
^Just a fun remark ^
>>Thins the Herd
Better have a good one soon then. 1 out of every 2 people could die right now and we'd still be more populated than 1960. There's no agricultural or economical issue that needs to be addressed, it all comes down to overpopulation.
"Ukrops ("ukrop" means "dill", that's how some people call Ukrainians because it sounds similar)! This is for the today's bus and all the civilians. Attention! All vehicles fire!"
>Russians hate us
I don't hate you, anon. My friends don't hate you. Frankly, we're all pretty concerned about our crazy government propaganda lately. And by "lately" I mean "after 2004".
It couldnt be that difficult to have a hybrid system, an autoloader that can be disabled and that is fixed to the inside of the barrel manually so that it can be detached easily if it becomes stuck or malfunctions.
In fairness, North America and the EU are having no issues feeding themselves, throw Russia into the Europe pool and I can see some parts of sub-saharan Africa, areas in the Indian Sub continent and maybe parts of Brazil/SA needing a cull, agricultural advances have allowed us to maintain population growth in the areas with access to them, this includes the likes of China and Egypt aswell as the completely swollen (800m) population of europe.
Not that guy but,
Remember not every tank is handled by combat engineers, more systems in operation means more things that can go wrong.
Theres a reason the British Embraced the AVREs so much in WW2, it gave them freedom to put any kind of system on their tanks without worrying about it malfunctioning and having to be taken back to the FOB for repairs every time the vehicle went over a rocky stretch of terrain.
From friends of mine who were tankers have all said that autoloaders were too slow.
Brits and American tankers can typically load a new round in about 4 seconds, and autoloaders tend to take about 6 seconds.. Additionally loaders can quickly load up different types of rounds (HEAT, SABOT, CAN, etc) quickly, while autoloaders don't have that ability left, giving them more flexibility on the battlefield.
Essentially a halfway decent human loader is better than an autoloader, a good human loader blows an autoloader out of the water.
At least that's my understanding, I was a grunt I just used tanks as giant 8 million dollar heaters.
That's broadly correct, under ideal conditions a human loader will reload faster than an autoloader. Though note that modern autoloaders can choose from between different ammo types quite easily.
Anyways, usually autoloaders are chosen for different reasons than peak performance. For one, they don't fatigue, so during prolonged combat they'll eventually overtake the performance of human loaders. Secondly, they're usually much more compact than a person, meaning that the turret and tank as a whole can be that much smaller, thanks to only having to accomodate two people instead of three. The trade-off there is that having an additional person in the tank can be quite handy in case you need to perform repairs, maintentance, or have to replace a casualty.
You can see how this difference shaped tank designs in the cold war. The western powers generally assumed their tanks to be performing an elastic defense initially, firing from prepared positions and then quickly falling back to further prepared positions and await the russians there. For them, it would ideally be a series of intense but short clashes, where the higher peak performance of the human loader would be quite valuable.
The russians on the other hand planned on an offensive Bagration-style Deep Battle that would consist of a firm breakthrough and basically constant maneuver. For that reason they wanted to keep their tanks as small as possible to minimise casualties during maneuver, and also needed them to be able to still function decently in battle even after very prolonged combat.
In all seriousness, war is not very good at thinning the herd.
After every war, there always follows a period of explosive population growth; see: the -45 through -50 age groups world wide.
What we need is a good old fashioned plague.
What does that even mean? You'd pass out at best and if you keep that stress youd probably get brain damage and if you keep that on death.
Whats lethal there in the video? Bones leave your body? Blood comes out of your anus if youre a 'normal' person?
>Literally hundreds of ISIS 'combat' footage videos all over the web
>Every gunshot is spray'n'pray
>Every mortar shell is "this 45° angle shud b good rite''
>Every rocket barrage is aimed at "up", some of which hillariously change trajectory mid-barrage due to recoil jerking the footing loose
Serious question: Seeing as how the vast majority of actually-usable weaponry possessed by ISIS is shit that was abandoned by first-worlders, wtf is going to happen once they run out of rocketry/decent shells and how much longer can they really continue to launch rockets at infidel trees before they run out of everything other than Kalashnikovs and scimitars?
>This would kill normal people.
It would make an untrained person black out, yeah...
>I'm not even kidding. The G's are lethal
You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. That statement is not only untrue, but it also doesn't even make sense to begin with.
I feel for these guys, first night in Bagram taliban tried to over run it with mortar attacks and rpg fire, we were in a huge tent, no plates in our armor and no rounds in a our weapons(fucken air force) one lucky mortar round would've killed us all.
thrust vectoring has very little combat use on modern era with every single thing optimized for BVR engagements.
Here, read what USAF pilot says about thrust vectoring.
>First, a little thrust vectoring history. The USAF tested a 3D nozzle on the Multi-Axis Thrust Vectored F-16 in the early 1990s.
>It was found that thrust vectoring was really only useful at speeds below 250 knots (with the F-16; the speed will vary with other jets). >Above that speed the jet had enough g available and was maneuverable enough that thrust vectoring didn't add anything.
>Also, at high speeds, if the nozzles start to swing the jet violently around you're apt to induce unacceptable loads on the airframe.
>Thrust vectoring, whether 2D or 3D, is a two-edged sword. If you're going to use it, you'd better kill me now.
>Ever seen videos of the Super Flanker spinning around like a top and doing back flips at an airshow?
>First off, the jet is slow – not a place to be in a multi-bogey environment. Second, when thrust is steered off-axis the axial component of thrust is decreased. Axial thrust pushes the jet (and wing) through the air at a speed required to maintain lift.
>Take away forward thrust, take away speed and lift. Go back to the videos. What's happening?
>The Flanker is dropping like a rock at slow speed (no lift is being produced by the wing). If the Flanker pilot does not kill me now, the other edge of the sword is about to fall. He's automatically building in vertical turning room for me and it's going to take an unacceptable amount of time for him to get enough smash back to take it away due to his low airspeed. If I'm still alive I'm turning him into a strafe rag.
>I flew enough BFM against the Raptor before I retired where the new Raptor pilots were discovering there's a time for thrust vectoring and there's a time to leave that club in the bag.
As to why they do it - sales and to impress crowds and especially someone like those Serb kids who`ll post the video on their ''PowerRossiya4ever'' YT accounts.
The one thing those maneuvers do demonstrate is airframe durability. But then again, if AMRAAAM/AIM-9X catches you - will only save you 1-2 seconds to bail out of canopy.
There is nothing dangerous in those maneuvers - 99% of modern aircraft use fly-by-wire systems to control inherent design instability and recovery systems that will lever your aircraft out for you if you pass out or something happens to you - for long enough period for you to snap back.
Thrust vectoring at this point should be used only in flying wing designs like webm related (likely F-A/F-X replacement will have it to have the best stealth characteristics (see latest Northrop concept art for it) while retaining maneuverability) or stunt planes.
But since Su engine and airframe has been optimized to have it, it`d most likely be more of a burden to get rid of it than remove it for cost optimization
that's why all white people should stop wars between each other. Good example.
probably similar to the CROWS system used on American hmmwv's. basically a mounted machine gun on top of the vehicle that's operated with controls inside the vehicle so a person doesn't have to expose their body in the turret.
So are russian super well-trained or its more of a "culture" thing with them? I see videos of them all the time doing military things whether actual war or them chilling, but I don't see them doing parade shit all the time like the chinky-eyes.
>For one, they don't fatigue, so during prolonged combat they'll eventually overtake the performance of human loaders.
I'm a dilletante but it seems to me that tank battles would be bursty. The Abrams loads 40-55 rounds, depending on the version, according to Wikipedia. I would think you could fire off half of your rounds without getting fatigued, and by then wouldn't the battle be decided? I'm thinking 20 rounds at 1 per 4 seconds is gonna be a lot more useful in combat than 55 rounds at 1 per 6 seconds.
That video is old, like 70's old.
Modern russian military kinda sucks desu, only about a third of their army is what we would considered ok at best, and the rest is literally dogshit, cannon fodder if that.
it´s not that bad, but you´re right, the divisions with lower prestige and rank are pretty much cannon fodder. but the russians have very good secret service apparatus, they fuck the western equivalents inside out in the blink of an eye
WHY WOULDN'T YOU JUST GOOGLE THE LYRICS YOU CAN HEAR HIM SAYING IN THE GODDAMNED SONG YOU ARE REQUESTING THE SOURCE TO YOU DUMB FUCKING NIGGER LOVING COCK SUCKING NO GOOD DIM WITTED HOMO REDNECK PIECE OF SHIT FUCK!@!?!??!?!?!?!
seriously? they serve you and you talk shit to them? i thought your smart?, and to those saying they are pussies i dont think so, because going out there and hip firing like in COD or Battlefield is pretty dumb AF
>That one german who faceplants the dirt
Man that sucks. Not just probably being one of the nameless millions dead, but the only thing anybody still remembers AT ALL is "that one nazi who smashed his face in the ground on historical records".
you can be very proud of the genocide that nazis promoted in you country too, nazi idea and latvian executors, I'd rather live under soviet rule than to colaborate with nazis, by far.
>>There is no agricultural or economical issue
Reminded me of Reggie Watts "we all know that fixing poverty is super easy". Amazing people already mock you without having heard of your existence.
Enough food is produced to feed the world, it's a matter of choice.
made some OC, inspired from some webum usually posted which is similar in feels.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
The size difference is my favorite thing about this.
What would you have done? Run out there like an idiot? That isn't call of duty... I dont see your ass out there. Yet they are the cowards... Easy to say when you are behind your computer jerking off to little ponies instead of supporting the people who are fighting so you CAN jerk off to ponies.
Stupid ungrateful neckbeard.
Mate I wouldn't have got hysterical. If you're a professional soldier be... you know... fucking professional.
I did a tour in Afghanistan. The last thing you want is some wanker having a fucking carry on making everyone think their hurt and in need of medical when really they're just a wimp.
