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.

HAHAHAHAHA... that gigantic pice of shit F-35 is about to be BTFO by a 40+ year old A-10!

>To gauge the joint strike fighter's ability to perform in a close-air support role, the Pentagon's top weapons tester has declared the sleek new fighter jet must face off against the lumbering A-10. The Pentagon's Office of Operational Test and Evaluation plans to pit the full-up F-35 against the legacy A-10 Warthog and potentially other fighter jets to evaluate the next-generation aircraft's ability to protect soldiers on the ground.

http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/air-space/strike/2015/08/30/prove-cas-capabilities-face/71336130/

I think we all know what the results of this will be: A-10 rules, F-35 is a flying turd!

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Also, poast some A-10 pics!

That's literally the point of the plane. It's meant to operate in an environment defined as "every cocksucker with a gun shooting at you," including small arms. They are GOING to get hit, and are armored to hell and gone to survive it, and a lot of them are going to get killed ANYWAYS. Which is why they're cheap.

But A-10 fanboys don't appreciate the A-10 as being a workhorse, they wank to DAS UBERPLAEN and completely miss the fucking point. If you do the math, adjusting for inflation; a WWII multirole fighter costs about... a sixth? A fourth? Of a modern destroyer-launched SAM missile. Back then, planes wore out really fucking fast, got shot down quite quickly, were destroyed in simple landing accidents a lot - they were expended more like ammo than as precious assets. But as time has gone on, planes have proven to be an asset where quality almost always trumps quality - you either dodge the missile, or you don't, and good planes can dodge many missiles whereas bad ones can't dodge one. It's an airplane from a different era, and the whole "cheap, disposable and cost-effective" concept just doesn't work nearly as well as it once did. The A-10 has had a good run, so I'm not weeping for it.

The question is, however - what are we going to replace it with?

Fucking tell me about it. The ACU-130 can't operate in daylight - it's that vulnerable, even against fucking goat-herders. At least we have the Apache/Cobra and their 30mm guns, which aren't too bad, but a fixed-wing platform with a lot more ammo would be delightful.

>A new Russian jet fighter unveiled at the Russian aeronautics expo and airshow called MAKS, using stealth technology designed to conceal the plane from radar and infrared, is being called a “super weapon” by military experts who say that the fifth-generation Russian fighter jet actually surpasses United States fighters and will give Russia an advantage in the skies.

>Known as the Mi-FA, the new Russian stealth fighter is developed by the Russian aeronautic giant Mikoyan and is set to go into action in 2019. Russia is developing the new super fighter to compliment the PAK-FA, which is expected to have features such at short takeoff from unprepared runways, LIDAR and Mach 2.5 Supercruise.

>Each Mi-FA stealth jet fighter costs about $40 million to build. Russia is the worlds second-biggest supplier of weapons, behind only the United States.

>Russian President Vladimir Putin has called the new fifth-generation stealth fighter “vastly superior to our main competitor, the F-22, in terms of maneuverability, weaponry and range.”

>The Lockheed F-22 Raptor is one of the two most sophisticated stealth fighters in the U.S. arsenal, matched only by another fifth-generation Lockheed plane, the F-35 Lightning II. And according to U.S. military aviation experts, Putin’s claim was not just an empty boast and will force the United States to look into new fighter aircraft.

Hello /k/, I'm an (aerospace) engineering student and the next semester I'll have a course in which I'll learn more about guns, shells, etc. I've always been fascinated by weapons in general (when I'll have an income I'll surely go through the bureaucratic hell my country has made to get you a license, and buy a nice handgun), but now, thanks to this course, I'm motivated to get into them from a more technical point of view.

I was wondering if you could explain me what are the features and the design choices that make a gun a good or bad gun, and more in general how to form a more complete knowledge of this subject.

Thanks.

Just don't forget that guns are designed for the end user -- not just for the sake of designing guns.

Things like ergonomics are important. Clearing a malfunction should be as little a hassle as possible. Remember that they must be /maintained/ by the user, so easier breakdown is a plus.

It seems like a large number of annoying design choices on firearms arise from the designer apparently forgetting that someone is actually going to have to do things with the firearm and sometimes just functioning isn't always good enough.

The slight comfort for me is it that we already documented and salvaged whatever we could back in the earlier 20th century when the Brits/French/Germans/US/Russians were discovering all the sites. The loss of the temples is terrible, but at least we've been able to document it. For instance all the artwork of the Dura Europos Synagogues and the relics within. Shit's gone but at least we have abundant copies of it.

Without a doubt makes me want to slap anyone crying about "Cultural looting". Like fuck we should return stuff to Greece or Turkey or Iraq or Egypt if we have it off shore already.

Ok guys, we had a great turn out today. Probably the biggest Georgia turnout so far with over 30+ people showing up.

Night before, a bunch of guys drove down and camped at Beaver Run. I wasn't there for it but I hear it was good since it didn't rain that night, we also all met up (about 15 of us) at el som spic restaurant and gave them our hard earned shekels to fill the pockets of some non-english speakers.


We got a good 4 hours in at the range the next day at the range before the rain set in pretty hard, but I'm glad we were able to get in that good block of shooting in.

Had a lot of fun and met a lot of cool people. Got to shoot some awesome guns I had not before and it's making me want to drain my wallet (I now realize I need a PS90 in my life).

And for all of you wondering, not sure if Tommy was there or not. If he was, he didn't make himself known, at least not to me lol.

Here's the group photo. Razor was a massive faggot and forgot his camera on 2MP, so unfortuantly, we are going to have to deal with this low resolution picture of our faggot ass faces, which I'm sure 90% of /k/ is not going to care about, the other 9%+ will make fun of us, and the last <1% of us will be the ones at the meet thinking about how awesome/terrible we look.

Forgot my Donetsk People's Republic flag to complement the nazi who brought the Ukrainian flag.

Based on rank the military pays you $300 pay you extra for your uniform allotment.

Once a year the military pays you extra to into uniform. You're expected to budget that throughout the year.
