Obsolete weapons still/brought back into service today.

Yemen restored its S-75 Dvinda/SA-2 Guidline missile system and took down a UAV.

South Sudan has been setting up S-125/SA-3 Goa missile systems.

SA-2's are hardly "obsolete".
>>
Who's UAV?
>>
>>28677733
The Houthis fired it, so presumably a Saudi UAV.

>>28677729
They certainly are by today's standards, doesn't make them any less effective against certain targets.

By what metric? It can take on and has downed F-16s. It is at the very least capable of taking down a large amount of current, in-service aircraft across the world.

I wouldn't call that "obsolete".

T-34 that was used in the Yugo wars.
Yeah,yeah I know its not "today" but still fairly close.

Obsolete doesn't mean not effective. A 1903 Springfield is obsolete, doesn't mean it's not effective.

>>28677753
Neat.

M16
I'm not saying all ARs, but the M16 has had its time. We are now living in the age of the carbine.

You're really trying to special-snowflake M4's over m16's?

What are the metrics by which you determine how obsolete one SAM is versus another.

Be specific.
>>
>>28678186
the smaller the SA number the more obsolete

OBVIOUSLY

makes you wonder where they get their spare parts

I mean most of that stuff is soviet, so "repairing" it can probably done with a few vac tubes, sheet metal and a 15mm fork wrench, maybe a few nuts and bolts, philips head screwdriver... and thats it

but still
you also kinda need the techies to know which of the vac tubes goes where and which switch does what
>>
>>28678158
To protect it from rain probably

New composite armor designed to take 14.5mm if i recall correctly.
Now, lets not bring up the fact that the composite armor started to break apart and flake when exposed to moisture and low temperatures. In Northern Norway. Where it always snows. And is fucking cold.
>>
>>28678158
To reduce the thermal signature.
>>
>>28677723
eh, that seems like an awfully big missile to take down something like a Predator drone. I guess if it's surplus and it works?
>>
>>28678087
I suppose until you leave the arena of simply threatening civilians and encounter a superior weapon, a tank is still a tank.

Lagstelt.
It's a relatively big canvas tent for up to 10 people.

>>28683116
Yes. The original name is M113, and there are several variations of it that are called other things.
>>
>>28677723
Pretty much the all the F-5E fleet of the Brazilian air force before being modernized.
>>
>>28683116
>>28683233
For fuck's sake it's NOT called a gavin.
It's called a M-113, and the only reason people think it's called a fucking gavin is because of a single retarded man named Mike Sparks, who has embarked on a 20 YEAR spamming campaign about calling it a gavin, and suggesting that it fill every single role in the army.
>>
>>28683496
then his spamming campaign worked lol, I read the name Gavin here on /k/
>>
>>28683700
That doesn't make it right.
>>
>>28683870
For real though, the Gavin is just so cool.
>>
>>28683496
F-35 is a failure because it's a jack of all trades, master of none. When will the MORONIC defense establishment realize we need M-113 GAVINs to fulfill every role?!?

Mike Sparks sailed into harbor
In his M one one and three
Ol' sparky hit the tavern
With his crew of fifty three

After drinking up their pay
They staggered through the town
But all the inns and public houses
Turned mike sparky down

Ol' Sparky said “Fear not, me lads
You all can come with me
I live just ‘round the corner
And you all can stay for free”

But when Mike Sparky’s wife awoke
Upon the break of day
They say that you could hear her wailin’
Clear to 4chan's kay…

She said there’s
Gavins all around the bed
And Gavins on the floor
Gavins in the bathroom
And behind the closet door

There’s Gavins in the fireplace
And Gavins in the hall
The living room is carpeted
With Gavins, wall to wall

There’s Gavins in the entryway
And Gavins on the stair
And worst of all, there’s even Gavins
In me underwear

There’s some behind the larder
And beneath the table, too
I do believe your Gavins
Got into me Irish stew

There’s Gavins here in front of me
And Gavins in the rear
My God—there’s even Gavins
Hanging from the chandelier

There’s Gavins on the windowsill
And Gavins in the yard
The Gavins even left a stain
Upon the Saint Bernard

Although I am a patient wife
‘Tis more than I can bear
To wake up in the morning
With your Gavins in my hair

I ne’er again do wish to see thee
Darken up my door
So clean up all your Gavins and
Come round my way no more
So clean up all your Gavins and
Come round my way no more!

T-34 used for training in Best Korea.
>>
>>28684604
iirc the norks actually went and modernized a bunch of T-34s with autocannons and shit to serve as urban assault vehicles. Basically really ghetto BMPTs.
>>
>>28677729
any SAM can be effective if it's part of a layered defense system. A lone SA-2 battery would be shit against a modern air force. But several SA-2 batteries intermingled with other more modern SAMs just adds to the layers of defense. If a country has them, no reason not to use them. If that's all they have, they might be in trouble though.
>>
>>28677762
most SAM platforms like that look like something out of WH40K
>>
>>28678087
meh, it has tracks and a big-ass gun. Still better than wheeling a cannon around on foot.
