Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

Do you guys ever think of how insanely deadly humans are? I mean lanky, impoverished africans can take down the largest animal on earth with no harm to them selves using stone age shit.

And other poor as shit african tribes can do the same thing with lions, effortlessly killing male lions in one on one combat so routinely it became a rite of passage at like 16 until they just fuckin ran out of lions.

So my question /k/ is are there any animals that really pose a threat to mildly developed humans (pre iron age)?

For 18 billion you could fund the preservation and sheltering of countless puppies. As puppies are less intelligent than rats, you wouldn't be causing harm to a cognizant being.

The Ruger was in 270. He went into an autistic rage because it had a synthetic stock.

I hear so many people saying that our troops, especially in infantry are dumb and useless because all they fight for is the needs of big corporations, Isreal etc. Alright let's assume everyone is too smart to enlist. Now we have no military, then what happens? We get steamrolled. Like a police officer even when they aren't need, its because their presence alone makes a difference. It's unfortunate our politicians push their bullshit and give these vets a bad name, but if you like it or not they are doing something that we need them to do. Their sacrifices aren't in vain, and I think anyone out there that thinks they're less honorable than (insert other war) vets I think you should maybe think it over a bit more.

I think you forget the shit loads of innocent people that we're being murdered before we got there. Sadhaam amongst other dictators was a total asshole. I believe our intervention caused more harm then good, but if we take out a terrorist here and there while we're there, then that's worth something. Paris wouldn't have happened if that part of the world really only stood for being left alone like you seem to believe.

ADA is the enemy of CAS and interdiction missions. If there's active ADA out there, the environment isn't yet as permissive as it could be for those missions.

NATO strategy was gonna be SEAD before CAS and interdiction anyway. Standing orders just means that unless you've been given a higher priority mission, it always makes sense to postpone what you were originally out there for, and clean up the ADA problem first.

I don't know if it's true that they had to abandon their missions and what not, but there is no doubt that the americans took the Shilka very seriously, and many NATO systems were made to have something of equal potency like the german FlakPanzer.

I believe i read some reports about using the combination of Kub missiles and Shilkas in the Yom Kippur War which prevented the use of Israeli planes near them completely. Luckily the arabs didn't quite understand the concept of moving their AA up with their tanks.

But maybe i am wrong.

>go to combat
I'd phrase this a little differently. If I was to go to combat, I'd probably pick an AR on account of modularity and ergonomics, also objectively superior terminal ballistics.
However, if I was to go to WAR, I would hands-down grab an AK.

>>28891241
How about you google some statistics, look at some deign notes, read some papers, and find out for yourself instead of shitposting and asking others to shitpost. The information is out there. Shit, if you're actually this retarded and noguns just download World of Guns and disassemble the two models for yourself. Or even simpler, just watch the field stripping in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VRrc2n0NXg

I've disassembled both, both in World of Guns and real life. Unless you get into autistic levels of detail stripping there's not much difference. ARs were actually nicer because they're not fucking riveted together.
