Can we have a thread on motorcycle cavalry/Recce/etc? Specifically WWII types on those Royal Enfield bikes? I'm interested in the guns, the uniforms, the gear, etc. for reference.
/k/ar thread? /k/ar thread.
What is the first step to "bullet-proofing" something?
I want to make a bullet-proof golf cart for use as a judge's vehicle on a field trial course and maybe used for transportation to distant targets on shooting range.
Highest caliber's allowed are .308 win and other .30 cal rifles. No .50 bmg. Also it would see maybe an occasional slug from some idiot on the field trial course.
>OP specifically states that he wants bike pics, even going so far as to request a specific bike and time period
>Hurr, /k/ar thread guyz
How could you fuck up so badly?
Die. Choke on your own tongue and spare this board your existance.
lulz git fimfamfugged, buddy.
I'll compromise with you, here's a trike.
>Specifically WWII types
Polish Sokol 1000cc
It's been finished and has been in use with spec ops forces; we won't find out they exist until a mission to kill ISIS leader Mohammed ibn-Abdul ibn-Akmed al-Mufasa bin-Al'abalah Almaeiz goes wrong and some are reported to have been destroyed while US forces escapeb by riding bitch with the body.
when the fucking shit is this going to be available?
So hear me out,
what if we take a game with the proper engine, like the next iteration of Tony Hawk, and have a whole side-mission game that is a Dispatch Rider during WWII?
Crazy war-torn courses, threat of enemy attack, OLIVE DRAB paint schemes with maybe small personal touches. Better finish the course before the time limit if you want your unit to live.
If we could do all this inside a military-sim instead, even better.
Dragons portes with Gnome-Rhone XA-2 bikes.
That convoy is from the Saumur tank museum, so I expect them to be historically accurate.
106mm recoiless rifle Vespa.
It's not supposed to be fired when it's in this position. You're supposed to get the gun out of the bike and affix it to the tripod beforehand.
Which is something, considering the terrain and brutality of french airborne operations in Vietnam.
Volugrafo Aeromoto 125 (ww2 italian airborne)
Aaaand, I have to learn how to quote again.
Still a Cushman, used by the french general Gilles in Vietnam during operation Castor.
The french tried a ton of models for their paratroopers during the Indochina and Algeria wars.
Always loved it when people took sport bikes off road.
no idea how you would turn
Ford Island museum. Bike is great, mannequin not so much.
Sorry, gonna have to post my Kawi Green Warmachine (Aka shitbike)
never rode one but ive done a lot of research, theyre a pretty entry level bike, however its impossible to beat their price point.
i might buy one this year, if i was richer id rather get a ural with a sidecar though. ill probably just get a enfield with a trailer.
I remember a fantastic mod for Battlefield 2, Nations at War. There was a map called Wacky Races, where you and a partner (Engineers only) rode either bikes, quads (that played pretty much the same as the BF3 ones, but predates it by many years), the A-Team van, or a choice of classic muscle and sports cars, and ripped around a dirt track, constantly jostling for first as your partner alternated between shooting and repairs. It was like Mad Max meets Tacticool.
OP here, sat on one at the local bike show yesterday, which is why I made the thread. I'm going to take one for a test ride come spring, and if I like it, gonna buy one and slut it up into as accurate a replica of a dispatch bike as I can. I was hoping some Anons had some good reference photos or links on Dispatch REs. What the weapons, bags/bike setup, etc. was, specifically Canadian or other Commonwealth models.
>Tfw I can legally ride with a NR gun on the bike
Too bad it's only a 500, but that's fine.
>planning on getting a based Ural for a while
>VA being a shit, waiting on money
>wife watches her SUV take a shit
>agrees to drive my car, apply for Ural loan
>loan companies don't care about triple income with minimal debt, no go
Fuck, sold my Goldwing 2 years ago for a cross-country move, need my open road.
Snapped this a few years ago in London walking around Kensington (I think). Nicely done in my humble opinion and i gather it's somewhat the look you're after.
Royal Enfield has a cafe style bike like that, the Continental GT. As you can see, the Battle Green has a different, retro style.
Something like this in the middle east would really help out our army boys from being blown to bits.
>faster that a humvee
>Less likely to hit an ied
Only concern would be well trained enemy snipers. Maybe a supply truck or med team would need to follow up to be safe. Hell, we could even have some of the bikes come with sidecarts. Said carts could have anti heli/tank/infantry guns mounted. Whatever is needed.
I love having an imagination /k/
