I'm having a hard time understanding how you think 90% of the german militarty getting killed by slavs and the soviets installing a puppet government is somehow germany winning.

Do you not realize in 1939-45 most of the German population was located around Berlin? AKA the entire region they fucking captured?

Today it is different because the DDR did not see tremendous population growth comparable to the west, retard.

Somehow "Russia didn't win the war" equates to "Germany won".

You are now aware Russia only survived from 42 to 45 courtesy of lend lease, you are now aware after the Sicily landings and then later with the Normandy landings the most experienced units of the Wermacht and Waffen SS were moved to the Western front.

The German government fell. The German economy and population was decimated. The entire German land was occupied by Allied Armys. You. Lost.

>You are now aware Russia only survived from 42 to 45 courtesy of lend lease

And this somehow makes them not winners...?

Do people honestly forget/not know about the 6th army that was completely annihilated in Stalingrad?

The Germans gave a good effort, they were against the might of 2 of the strongest empires on Earth, the Brits and the Americans. We all know that without the American supplies flooding into Britain/Russia they'd have suffered the same fate as everyone else the Germans conquered.

If Britain didn't have that channel, they'd have been as dead as the french, if Russia didn't have the massive amounts of Trucks, Planes, Ships, Munitions coming in from the US, they'd also be dead.

Moral of the story - Don't fuck with the US, it's the modern equivalent of the Roman Empire. I find it funny how many jingoistic morons will argue this fact due to their own myopic nationalism. Yet you wouldn't argue the power of the dead empires, like the Mongols, or Brits.

Though I suppose this is /k/... Historic fact doesn't really shunt your fantasies of the British doing everything all on their own, or equally so the Russians because we all worship their rifles.

I don't really have a dog in this fight but I can most definitely say that the Japanese did NOT lose 320,000 men killed in Manchuria against the Soviets. Even the most heavily inflated Soviet claim was a little less than 150,000 TOTAL Japanese casualties (including dead, wounded, missing and captured) from 1939-45. Unless that chart is also counting Japanese casualties inflicted by the Chinese in Manchuria, and even then I'm not so sure.

*My bad, I think I was looking at figures that separated the August Storm invasion in '45 from all of the border conflicts prior to that. Still, that chart claims something like 250,000+ Japanese KIAs against the Soviets in 1945 which is definitely false. At its highest the number was like 80-90,000.

Was proven obsolete halfway through the war, expensive, heavy as fuck, etc. I own one, it's a blast to shoot, but it has no place in today's armies as sad as I am to admit it.

Yup, because when 90% of those issued were converted back to firing from the M2 tripod, it was successful

Lighter than a TOW missile launcher.

Oh and it is much better than the TOW missile for shooting at non-armored targets.

It was pretty good for the time. Low mag capacity, tendency towards unreliability (when compared to American counterparts), and upward-fed magazine.

Though the idea of having a bayonet lug on your LMG is both metal and Japanese as fuck.

It could hold 30 rounds, same as the Bren...

Never heard anything about this regarding the Type 99. You're probably thinking of the Type 11.

Overall I'd say the T99 was definitely superior to the BAR as a LMG, though of course that's not saying much. I'd say it was at least the equal of the Bren from what I've read about it.

Yeah, he was able to get a bunch of reloading dies and good brass for it from the guy he'd bought it from. Really cool gun, if it weren't a snowflake caliber it'd be a good one to have.

Guy's also got an MG42...I have to say, it's impressive, but not all that great to shoot.

6th army getting fucked at stalingrad was courtesy of Hitler deciding to ignore the generals on the ground and push a no retreat policy, its really a poor example in that regard. otherwise spot on
>>
>Search "FAL"
>Zero result

FUCK ALL OF YOU
>>
>>23078570
So you're admitting you're full of shit.

>>23081012
not exactly. If you really look into things, Hitler didn't do go full retard (read: ignoring any real logic and issuing insane orders) until late 1944.

The loss of the 6th Army at Stalingrad was the result of several factors
>the success of the Demyansk airlift
Earlier that year, a pocket of 100,000 troops were trapped at Demyansk, only for a successful airlift effort to relieve them until the blockade could be broken. The Germans assumed that they could apply this experience to Stalingrad, not understanding that the VVS had learned much from their failed blockade.
>exhausted forces
Even if a breakout was attempted, Army Group South lacked the ability to break the blockade. Although an immediate breakout wasn't attempted, breakouts were attempted eventually, and they quickly failed.

Really a lot of the blunders that Hitler gets the blame for only are apparent in retrospect, up until 1945. Once 1945 came around, you had things like
>refusing to withdraw forces from Courland and Norway because of a presumed launching point for further attacks into the Soviet Union
>Hitler's maps showing units up to 250 miles from their actual locations
>On the eve of the Vistula-Oder offensive, declared the Soviet forces spotted by German intelligence "The greatest impostor since Genghis Khan"
>>
>>23080959
It would look like a G3
>I'm serious
Look up the development of the Gerat
>>
>>23076806
You're on the right track.

The Soviets didn't kill Germany alone, and neither did the US/Britain.

It was a combined effort. Without the Lend-Lease and Allied operations drawing German forces to other fronts, the Soviets likely would have collapsed. But without the Eastern Front, Anglo-American efforts in the west would have been horrifically costly at best.

The war was not won by any single power. It took American factories, British ingenuity, and Russian blood.

>SMG firing 7.62
>Rarely Jammed
>Elected as avtomat of choice on western front by both sides

Only negative thing about it was its drum mags that would often cause feeding issues. This was easily remedied by box magazines.
>>
>>23083272
We have cases of allied soldiers in the western front using MP40 over their own weapons man.

It's just preference.
>>
>>23083272
>why did soldiers on the Eastern Front elect the PPsH models over their own weapons
Ammo availability, supply lines for 9mm Luger weren't reliable, especially late in the war. Not to mention higher rate of fire was more desirable in tight city environments.
