War photo thread?
this picture i colored myself
>inb4 the uniforms are not the right color i wasn't trying to be 100% accurate i was just messing around
since fucking when?
But we've had plenty of them
Fucking captcha. Spammers should get the Death Penalty.
Their uniforms are brown, kind of like soviet ones.
Well lets creat some discussion then. I know Americans use the M4 in Afghanistan, but is it really the right rifle for a place with all that dirt, long engagements and cold in the winter?
They're Finns, and those are Suomi KP31s.
Counter with space-magic.
Don't listen to him, he doesn't know jack shit.
You are blissfully unaware as to why that specific case happens with gwg and ak threads...
Dumping is fine if it's the board's main topic.
Eat shit moron.
Secret Elvis picture. He secretly served in 68. Fought in Battle of Hue in February. Came back and did his big comeback special in June of 68.
Fought under name of Private Parker (after his manager). Good soldier by all accounts.
Buildings n shit are too hard to color in a realistic looking way, so I only did Conrad himself.
His uniform is more green than WWII feldgrau. Conrad was in the VoPo. Here's a color photo of a VoPo uniform.
I don't know shit about GDR armed Forces or VoPos, but I hope this is better.
For some reason I like photos of soldiers with animals.
This is a shop from a picture taken at the independence day parade, here is the original.
I have a folder of 600+ images from WWII, some WWI, and some Vietnam.
Holy shit that "Die Filthy Slav" look on his face
I have a shitton of animals and soldiers- One, my favorite, is this one, Wehrmacht with a kitten on the table
>trying to pass off publicity stills from 1980's Soviet propaganda films as actual wartime photographs
It really does seem way too Enemy At the Gates to be legit
>Jerry 'Jerry Can' Strömen
oh im sorry
My bad M8s, this was from a gigantic fucking pack I got a few years ago. Hence the filenames.
The extra bulk on the casemate actually concrete.
It's like a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fixed this tank
"we poot wood here okey it fix"
Its an E of some type, certainly. Later models had a redesigned engine cowling and nose cone shape that was considerably more streamlined in appearance.
If I had to guess, I'd say they were attempting to field-rig some applique armor, to defeat panzerfausts. Not sure how much good it would do with no spacing however.
The Hs-129 was a very strange aircraft. It was extremely heavily armored, so much so that there was little room for instrumentation in the cockpit. Several gauges had to be moved outside onto the engine cowlings to the pilot's left and right.

you mean like pontiac did in the 60's on the GTO?
Not a Photograph, but quality no less.
>making this run with multiple dedicated AAVs on station
Love how clearly you can see just how thick the glacis plate is on this monster.
its flying low enough for it to have been the inspiration for the AC type aircraft
>bomb jerry's factories
>proceed to gun down workers fleeing from the blaze with all those .50 dakka's
Pretty sure this is edited, if anyone has the orignal plz post
I often daydream about the near- virtual-reality experiences we might have in the future. I also confess a certain degree of shame for so eagerly anticipating the ability to immerse myself in one of the darkest times in human history... but fuck that. I want to plunge into an endless formation of hostile bombers, tracers as common as air in the space around me, clawing desperately at the unconquerable multitude.
Actually, I think these might simply be photos from the same shoot.
>more of image visible in first image
>ejected casing visible in second over foreground marine
>slightly different angle of rightmost marine's rifle?
Fun fact: The stories of Polish cavalry units foolishly charging headlong into German armored columns were propaganda created by the Germans themselves. Even at the height of their power, the majority of the Heer was not motorized, relying mainly on horses, including traditional cavalry units. The Germans, who considered themselves the most powerful military in the world, were being repeatedly defeated by the Polish, whose cavalry units were far superior to those of the Germans. Wanting to conceal this fact, the "cavalry charging tanks" story was created.
/ak/ threads were only ever a regular thing here during that rash of cancerous animes like GuP and Upotte all came out at once. Before that they were way less cancerous, focusing on actually /k/-related anime, far less frequent, and also not shit.
No one cared about /ak/ before because it was /k/. With Upotte and GuP dropping in the same year we had a huge influx of /a/-shitters. THAT was the problem.
They aren't German. However, German soldiers, particularly the less well supplied SS units, were notorious for using a wide variety of captured Allied weapons, particularly the PPSh. Germany was never on a war footing economy-wise, and did not have the resources to equip each man with standard weapons. And even when they did, German small unit tactics were based around infantry supporting machine guns, meaning that infantry were equipped with bolt guns, ill-suited to urban combat and fast moving warfare, two of the highlights of Germany's early campaigns. At firat, only officers and NCO's were issued MP40s. Contrast that with the Soviets, who often armed entire units with PPShs, and as a consequence were far more effective in close quarters combat. Seeing first-hand how effective they were, they quickly became prized among the ranks of the Heer, both as weapons, and as trophies.
