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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
