Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology.

>"An A-10 is always going to be better at CAS than an F-35. That's because the A-10 was designed specifically for that mission. But any other mission on the planet besides CAS, the F-35 wins, period... Once we can carry weapons and we some of the restrictions are removed the F-35 will be just as capable as an F-16 at CAS."

Now you're just baiting. You can't seriously believe that because you're on /k/ and not huffington post.
>That's because the A-10 was designed specifically for that mission.

Holy shit even retarded pilots don't understand what the A-10 was for.

It's an INTERDICTION aircraft, they were built to destroy soviet tanks in case of a cold war going kinetic.

They were never built to kill foot mobiles.

The F35 platform is multi-role, but specialized versions already exist.

The Air Force version has a 25mm cannon that can be used against ground targets. The cannon can also serve as a weapon of last resort against enemy aircraft.

The Navy version is fitted to be able to take off carriers.

The Marines version is able to take off near vertically, similar to the Harrier Jumpjet.

>Russia is broke and China doesn't care.

Even if this were true, old planes still need to be replaced.

guh-RAND or GAIR-und? My buddy swears it's pronounced the second way and says he's heard audio of John C Garand saying it that way so... is he wrong, /k/?

Rifle, Cal .30, M1
When in doubt, M1
why does EVERYONE at gunshows and gun games and gun everything pronounce it wrong?
>dad issued one in vee-it-nam
>called it guh-rand (no emphasis anywhere, dat new england accent)

call it the same out of habit i guess
It's like how everyone pronounces carbine "car-BINE" when it's actually "car-BEAN"

Instead of a crazy idea, how about an idea that makes people go crazy?

Project Azorian. Soviet SSB sinks, US creates a secret plan to recover said sunken sub. Depending on who you believe, either parts of the sub were recovered or the whole thing.

So the most expensive weapons system ever built by man gets beaten by the previous generation. The only winner is the NIFARP companies, and our future enemies.

It's basically this.
It's obviously 5th gen
I have a 3W laser "cannon" sitting in my desk right now. My fighter jet is regrettably in the shop. Goddamned tire pressure sensors...
5.0 gen performance, 4.5 gen price
A better question would be whether PAK-FA is 5th gen or 4.5th.

What should I get next? Mauser (thinking M48), Enfield, or M39 Finn mosin?
FTR is Factory Thorough Repair, to return the rifle to 80% of it's life I believe. 55 is probably the date of refurbishment.

I have a No.1 that was made in 1918 then had an FTR in 1920.

Another Mosin that almost certainly saw combat in WW2; a 1920 Tula Model 1891 infantry rifle with Finnish Army property mark, and signs of Finnish re-build. More-likely-than-not captured during the Winter War, due to the use of older and more obsolete weaponry by the invading Soviet army, which saw Finland as an easy conquest.

m/39; you don't have enough Mosins.

That's a k98az? I guess I have the k98a then, my rifle doesn't have the washing disk or the grasping groove. I'm guessing that makes my rifle rarer?
Kar.98AZ is the same as the Kar.98a. AZ= "Aufpflanz-und Zusammenstellvorrichtung", or "means for fixing bayonet and stacking arms. The designation was used between 1908 and 1912, when the designation was discontinued. This was to distinguish this model from the original Karabiner 98, a true cavalry carbine that was gradually phased out. When the Karabiner 98b was adopted in 1924, they needed to differentiate between it and the former Kar.98AZ, so the 98AZ became the Kar.98a.

What? SPBMT isn't that hard
Grand Strategy: Check hearts of iron and other paradox game AND their mods

I always liked the first one better but I didn't play the sequel that much.

How well does this run on 4GB RAM?
What's a good /k/ game that runs on a 2.2ghz processor (with a turbo up to 2.7)?
