SAAB has presented a purpose built aggressor variant of the Gripen C, mainly aimed at the US and UK.
Is there any chance that the US buys foreign aircraft, even of it's only for aggressor purposes?
It would probably have some benefit over current US made aggressor aircraft as those are either old and bordering obsolete or modern but very familiar in both shape and performance to US pilots.

No. The US already regularly trains with airforces that have Russian, French and British planes. There's no benefit in creating a logistics train just for a few planes.

U.S. Navy Investigating if Destroyer Crash Was Caused by Cyberattack

>With the McCain incident happening so close to the Fitzgerald,” questions immediately arose about whether computer manipulation could have been the cause of the crash, Tighe said. The Navy has no indication that a cyberattack was behind either of the incidents

To be clear, proof of a cyber attack successfully disabling a ship would be an even bigger admission of failure and vulnerability than saying 7th is staffed with retards with no seaman ship.

What do you want to know? I've been shot at. Mortared at. Had an RPG launched at me. Returned fire. Witness war crimes. Try to detanate a fire extinguisher by throwing it in the fire pit. seen men cut to pieces. Saw children die as their parents asked me to help. Even broke up what we call a rape room, where those scum rape women. Then there's the two guys I've shot in combat.

So I've given you some options. What do you want to know?

I want to know it all. Also, who committed the war crimes? To be honest, I think war crimes is fucking stupid. War is war. This liberal pussy bullshit that has applied "rules" to war is some massive faggotry that no one even listens to. Including the United States.

"Damn, feels good to be the alpha. How will those beta cucks in the white house justify their lack of response to THIS one?"

I found this "collapsible bo staff" thats literally just two extendable police batons connected back to back and i thought it would be a good thing to keep in the car since its just a 5 foot collapsible baton.
Does anyone know what the legality of keeping one of these in the car is? Where i live keeping a weapon in your car is considered the same as keeping it on your person and normal extendable batons are legal, but i don't know about something like this.

Here's how you'll look using it.

>>35192637
I watched some torture test videos and it seems pretty durable.

>>35192654
I'm not actually going to use it as a bo staff, i was planning on taping one end closed and using it as an extra large baton with a reserve in case those torture tests were just flukes.

Depends what kind of optics we're talking about. Magnifying or little to no magnification? And at what distance?

Are Fighter Jets the top predator of the military food chain?

It seems they're capable of destroying everything a military might have.

Even things meant to kill fighter jets (such as SAM sites) are killed by jets conducting SEAD

Is it just me, or does buying less expensive firearms feel more appealing? I can afford higher end guns but I always treat them with care and they feel less practical, these guys feel more rugged and wouldn't feel so bad if I accidentally everything.

This is probably a dumb question but google isn't turning up anything.

Is there any gun that uses a trigger that pulls back completely straight instead of pivoting? If no would such a system even work, I'm assuming if it offered anything over a pivoting trigger it wouldn't be all that uncommon so I get it's a dumb idea, the main thing I want to know is if a trigger mechanism like this would work.

Yes, I know pic related has a lot of issues that wouldn't work, it's just a general idea of what I'm talking about.

Colt had a wonder 9 based on a design Stoner came up with that had a trigger like that. It rolls on bearings, but the gun is terrible. HK VP70, I think, is like that, and I believe the LCR does it too. However, Ruger spent time and money making it work, which makes it unique amongst those kinds of triggers, apparently.

Although technically speaking, a 1911 trigger moves in a straight line as well.

The 1911, lol
