My new years resolution is to finally start a martial art. Is 27 years old too old to start learning? What should I learn? I'm doing 3 gun so I'm already pretty deadly with firearms but I need to also make my entire body into a weapon (I've been working out too). Please no meme styles like krav maga

If you want to get really really fucking good
>Boxing for movement
>Muay Thai for striking
>Judo for grappling
I don't believe in BJJ for self defense because outside of the cage you're just going to get your teeth kicked in by your opponent's buddies while you're submitting them. I think Judo is more reasonable since you can throw someone down and stay standing.
Or you can just go to any MMA gym and learn a boiled down version of all those things.

I've given thought to enlisting in the army as a 19K. What can you guys tell me about it?

I'm 6'2, will I even be able to fit in an Abrams?
What's the training like? What exactly do you do after you finish training, but there's no war to be had?
Is there anything to know before going in?

Enlighten me

Hey tank men, I wanna sign up for a MOS that's as short as possible (partly cause I'm 23 and feel if I enlist for any longer I'll be too old once I get out) so something like 19k or 11B is what makes the most sense since I can sign up for 3 years so that I'll get my college paid for but also so that I can experience what being in the military is like.
I wanna work in the LEO community once I'm out. Would this help in any way with that or is there any short MOS that would? Not counting being an MP cause thats a 5 years commitment.

We have innawoods, unnaground, but what does /k/ think about the possibility of unnawater? What advantages would there be as apposed to unnaground or innawoods? I wouldn't assume most /k/ommandos would have a real application for diving equipment except perhaps laying mines or laying down/recovering secret unerwater stashes or some bullshit. What does /k/ generally think of diving shit?

I corrently have a small assemblage of vintage scuba equipment that I'm going to be replacing soon with a surface air line impressor since I don't really plan on exceeding depths of 15 feet tops. Can post pics of my current gear with timestamp as requested. Inb4 I go the way gasbro or grenadebro but underwater.

because we can't shave all through Boot Camp. After thirteen weeks your secret garden is more of a briar patch and were it not for the regulation hair, your legs and underarms would make you look like an earth-mother hippie.

>Aviation Ordnanceman
It was lots of fun. My MOS was 6531, Aircraft Ordnance Technician. So I would with my Marines, load weapons onto the aircraft's hardpoints, then we would set the fuzes (the device that controls when the weapon goes off) and then I would climb into the aircraft's cockpit and intialize the weapons and slave them to the pilot's controls. That's the job in a nutshell.

The really heavy weapons, like the 2000 pound bombs, we loaded with a cradle, but lighter missiles, like the Sidewinder, weigh around 200 pounds so one or two of us would lift it by hand, while another person secures it to the aircraft. When you're new, you have to do the all the lifting because you don't yet know enough to do the other stuff, and you're still new.

Also, you get to wear a flight suit which is, no lie, like the comfiest thing in the world (until you need to pee).

I'd totally recommend it. The Air Wing is its own separate world and way more chill. When I was in Iraq, I never had to leave the wire and except for the nightly mortar attacks was never in any real danger.

While I don’t think it stretches to CERN, there is a weird thread of continuity I’d like filled if anyone knows how it could be.

>Thule society and the occult had a lot to do with the SS and Himmler was obsessed
Missing link in my knowledge
>von Braun and others were, at least nominally, in the SS
>Project Paperclip
>Jack Parsons was a hardcore Thelemite occultist and founding father of the JPL
>Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard participated in a batshit ritual in the desert together involving a redhead they both wanted, ritual sex, and “magick” to summon the Anti-Christ

Occultism doesn’t seem present in today’s black budget groups to my knowledge outside of some funky numerology and what amount to cryptic jokes on patches for satellite missions or test squadrons.

Also, to the thread’s topic, Project Orion comes across as pretty sweet as does its associated Casaba Howitzer plasma “lance” warhead offshoot. We totally have the tech for a literal starfleet and some badass weapons... and that’s all from what’s declassified and known.

is nuclear war winnable?

How would they wipe out the USAs ICBMs? Their warheads would take 20 minutes to reach. There is more than plenty of enough time for the us to launch. Sure the bombers would probably go, but many would also make it out.
>>
>>36122654
If the launches are detected the US and its NATO allies would launch their own weapons against the Soviet Union before their weapons reach the ground. If an ultimatum was to be delivered it would need to be delivered prior to the launch. No one will be listening to their enemy in the crucial half hour of a nuclear exchange.

>An initial limited strike
A nuclear strike that somehow wipes out the entire US land based nuclear arsenal, including bases located near major population centers, cannot be considered a limited strike in any sense. That said the US navy still had 12 Benjamin Franklin class, 10 James Madison class, and a few Lafayette class SSBNs during the height of the cold war in addition to the Ohio's. This isn't counting the inventory of the other NATO powers who possessed their own weapons.

The system could shelter two million people for about a week.

Food, fuel, medication, and other essential stocks are available within the system, they are locked away in secured rooms to prevent theft (this is pretty much standard all over the world).

Chairs, sleeping bags, etc. are also stored. Running water would be cut off but water is in storage and some areas have their own wells. Washing would be limited (no showers) and special bins are used for waste disposal.

After a week the survivors would resurface and relocate outside the city where more stockpiles are available

When I first got into guns it was a really big deal for me to buy stuff that was new and in perfect condition, but as the more guns I buy, the more I look for older stuff that shows its age well. There's just something about the faded bluing and aged wood that resonates with me, I love the mystique and character that an old, worn gun has. I honestly couldn't imagine buying a new gun any more.

Does anyone else get these feels?

True, but it took France an embarrassingly long time to develop a bolt-action that surpassed the Model 98. Shouldn't have even bothered with it 2BH; the M34 Berthier would've served just fine as a second-line rifle to supplement the MAS40.

What military rifle has that? Almost none outside of American guns and they aren't ever useful in combat.

It's a bolt action rifle. They just trained their soldiers not to load their rifle until they were getting into combat, just like every other nation did. Safeties aren't useful and in fact can get someone killed trying to fire and finding they can't because of the safety.

there are also ways around the rules, the germans said that gas shells were acceptable, becasue they were not what was killing the enemy, rather it was the explosion produced by the gas shell that killed the enemy, and it was a commercial chemical, not a military specific chemical agent

the jews said that they were using white phosphorus as a smoke screening agent, which justified them dropping it on a school producing pic related (i.e. the incendiary effects were not the prime use, and so civilian casualties were not the intended outcome of the WP use as a weapon)

From the states perspective, yes.

>>36122333

Treaties are written by the ruling class. Sure, killing is more "humanitarian" than blinding or crippling, but it also serves a more insidious purpose: the state doesn't want to pay for a bunch of blind or disfigured or otherwise crippled young men for the next 50 or so years. That's five decades of a non-productive mouth to feed, a mouth that they are bound by social contract to be fed because he's a veteran. And veterans are the one group you cannot overtly dick, because otherwise you might find yourself short on bodies for the next war.

Better to kill than take care of for the rest of his life.
