Honestly surprised we haven't had a game where you play a Wehrmacht conscript. Obviously taking place int he late stages where at first there is an organised effort but before long it's just you trapped behind Soviet lines trying to avoid capture. You'd find other trapped soldiers from different walks of life and you'd worth together just to survive.

The only issue with making a game like this somebody will politicize it rather than push a simple story of survival in war.

Hey /k/, do you guys know what armoured vehicles can PMCs use, and in what measure can they afford them?
What vehicles would you pick for your own Private Military Company?

By armoured vehicles I mean really from humwees to tanks and even choppers
>>
this is from the wikipedia page on Executive Outcomes (a south african PMC group)

>As is characteristic of one of the first Private Military Companies (PMCs), Executive Outcomes was directly involved militarily in Angola and Sierra Leone. The company was notable in its ability to provide all aspects of a highly trained modern army to the less professional government forces of Sierra Leone and Angola. For instance, in Sierra Leone, Executive Outcomes fielded not only professional fighting men, but armour and support aircraft such as one Mi-24 Hind and two Mi-8 Hip helicopters, the BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicle and T-72 main battle tank. [15] Note that these were the property of the client state and not Executive Outcomes itself. [16]It also possessed medevac capabilities to airlift the wounded out of combat zones via Boeing 727 D2-FLZ owned by Ibis Air. These were bought from sources in the worldwide arms trade within Africa as well as Eastern Europe.[17]

The aircraft were owned and operated by a separate partner company called Ibis Air which also owned MiG-23 "Flogger" fighters and a small fleet of PC-7 turbo-prop trainers converted for the recce and ground attack role (with the capability to fire SNEB air-to-ground rockets). Ibis Air also had the connections to operate MiG-27 "Flogger" strike aircraft and Su-25 "Frogfoot" close support aircraft for EO that were loaned out via the Angolan Air Force.[18]

Usually they're stuck with whatever they can get their hands on. Some groups like: >>34104022 that are in Africa will often use either their own/sub-contracted out equipment or local mil equipment.

Over here I'm SA it's pretty cheap to get good milsurp armored cars and trucks and scout tanks. They are difficult to get hold of because of the small quantities and all the companies snatching them up as soon as they are on sale, but you could add your own weapons to them. Point in case, I can buy the APC that our police use (can protect against small arms and better than nothing against mines) for cheaper than a sports car

Hey fellas. Noguns here. Will be moving back to the US (into a free state) from Japan here in a couple months, and am looking to buy Funs. I used to own a couple rifles before moving abroad, but since I'm married, I was thinking about good handguns for home defense. I figure something that my wife can shoot would also be a decent idea. Recommendations?

Price range from 300-500 dollareedoos sound decent? Or am I being a faggot?

In 1985, in a war between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, who was more likely to win?

>>34105673
Dude, we're talking about the Cold War here.
Any bigger city and important infrastructure will have disappeared from the map under nuclear fallout by the first week.

Look up the unearthed Pact plan of defense. Nuke the advancing NATO and nuke the fuck out of Europe itself, then send the tanks through this mess to secure the rest of the mainland europe and deny further aggression from the west.

NATO wouldn't have been much different, though knowing the generals of post-WW2 US (Operation Unthinkable and the like), they probably also had a plan of attack unlike the Soviets.

NATO, easily.

As soon as the Warsaw Pact armies were occupied elsewhere, their countries would collapse in revolt. Despite the iron grip of communism, there was still civil unrest all over the place.

Then you've got armies in foreign countries without any supplies or logistical support. Half of them would probably surrender right then and there.

What are some practical applications for full-auto? Why shouldn't we be allowed to have that capability?

I'm debating with a buddy, who sees no reason for citizens to be able to own full auto, while I say that we should absolitely have that right. I'm not a soldier so I have no experience or qualifications to talk about fire suppression which is the only thing I could think about.

>What are some practical applications for full-auto?
when the mongolian horde comes over the horizon full force at you and every bullet regardless of shot placement makes a difference. other than that, enemy suppression and diversion. you build a wall with automatic fire.

>>34097171
>nfa
it was put in place to quell the use of automatic firearms in criminal and gang related use. it won't be banned due to the market that nfa funs has created. it sure as shit didn't cost anyone $20k-$50k to make an automatic firearm, but people sure as shit pay those prices for them. nfa funs are a legit investment nowadays, with the rich buying up full auto funs with the intention of selling them only to other nfa appropriate owners. it's a closed high value market. charlton heston was a big time nra advocate, but owned a fuck ton of nfa stuff. he would never persuade someone to repeal the nfa if it would make all his nfa funs worth a fuckton less than what he paid for them.

I made something similar to that.

It does redirect it--but unless it has better geometry it will flare out to the sides a lot.


This piece doesn't extend far enough but I am pretty sure the effect would be similar.

The effective "redirection" zone will extend past the shooter but not very far.
