Dear mods, make the star spangled banner rise with /k/ all day long
Sincerely, little girl
I went up to fort McHenry with my wife and got to help with the raising of the flag. Was truly a powerful experience that made my hair stand up.
Is that you mods? Please stop allowing politically charged threads to exist on /k/. Love, anon. Amen.

Russia's Admiral Gorshkov Frigate will 'finally' be turned over to the Russian Navy 1 day before the July 28 Naval Parade. The last delay was caused by the Poliment-Redut system which is basically a smaller copy of the S-300FM system that uses a smaller missile but with the same range and an AESA radar system.

It took 12.5 years before the first of the class was turned over to the Russian Navy, not only does it look outdated as it does not look as aesthetic as any newer superior Chinese ship it also does not have the capabilities of newer modular ships such as the LCS. It is simply mind boggling that they can't just buy Chinese.

Waddup /k/, I wanted to show you all something I made this week at my work.

My friends and I built an air cannon last summer out of pvc piping, and I wanted to make some projectiles for it that are a step up from the ping pong balls we've been firing out of it. I designed and made a pair of saboted 50 cal projectiles. The nylon sabot is 3D printed and is designed to fit the air cannon barrel and should seal against it. It is meant to split open like a shotgun shell wadding when it exits the barrel. The projectiles are machined from a 1/2" dia. rod of 303 stainless steel. I'm sure these will be good for multiple firings (assuming we dont lose them), and I'm hoping the sabots can be reused as well. They are meant to split open but not actually break into pieces, but I'm not sure how well they are going to work. I went through a few iterations and these are the ones that I think will work the best. My main concerns are the sabots ripping apart, and the bullet tumbling once it leaves the sabot. I didnt do a lot of design work on the bullets, I just kinda machined them to what looked good. I even put a little boat tail on them. I was considering adding some rifling on the outside of the sabots, but I dont think it would be very effective and it would be difficult to get good results with the 3D printer.

The first test firing is tomorrow night. I'll be sure to post some results, assuming I dont accidentally kill myself. This cannon is no joke. It's got a tank that we pressurize to about 150psi using an electric air compressor. A ball valve releases the pressure into the barrel. Very simple and effective design. It's not very dangerous when firing ping pong balls, but these SS bullets I made could definitely be lethal when fired out of the thing. Cheers!

You could also make the sabot into an impeller. Make it fan shaped so the air blasting into the barrel causes the sabot to spin.
Left dart might work for you.
Stick flèchettes into a marshmallow then into your sabot

OP here. These are all great ideas! I wish I had thought about boring out the rear of the projectiles when I made them. I will definitely keep these in mind for the next version.
I think there's a few ways I could get the sabot to spin in the barrel, I will have to experiment with the design.
I like the fins in that pic because they dont protrude from the nominal diameter of the projectile. That's exactly the type of fin I was envisioning.

What job would you recommend in the navy /k/?
93 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
If you ever want to volunteer for extra schools/certs and other shit like that then having your warfare quals g2g shows that you are ready, motivated and all that Jazz. Not to mention it can put you over the top for Evals if it comes down to it which largely affects your chances of making rank. If you care about that stuff that is.

I got tri qualed in less than a year and shot up to E5 breddy fast in my first command. I never got turned down for any special shit I wanted to go do. Conversely there was this dude who almost got his orders pulled and generally shat on for failing to qualify in his primary warfare in 3 years time...
Let’s be fair. Both Rates can be good if you’re able to make a plan and excel in your peer group. If you’re high speed then you can go FMF as a corpsman or get a good NEC like K9 handler for MA. Obviously there’s good prospects in the first responder community. Very easy to get into Fed Law enforcement from MA work. Most HMs I know that like their job go on to do EMT work civvy side or commission through one of the various Nurse/Medical Corps routes.

I’ve seen my share of stellar and shitty folk from both rates, just comes down to the person.
Be a corpsman. They now get a $10k enlistment bonus because it is undermanned apparently. Though as a corpsman myself, it's funny that they are having issues with trying to keep lower enlisted sailors in but instead of giving that money to current junior corpsman for reenlistment, they are giving it to boots. Really shows how much the upper ups have their heads up their asses.
When I joined back in 2012 HM was one of the rates I wanted most. It wasn't available at the time I went to meps, and since I was impatient and stupid I went in undes. I spent 2 years putting in applications for any rate that wasn't BM, CS, LS, OS, or other equally shitty jobs, and I always put in for HM when I could, but I ended up getting ABH (I thought it would be better than it was). It kind of pisses me off now that HM has a $10k bonus AND undes airman is $10k too like fuck me right?
It shows how incompetent the navy is. There are a lot of disgruntled junior sailors in the HM rating because making rank is difficult and there is no real incentive in being in the navy anymore after 5 years. But the navy NEEDS these junior sailors to stay in but instead of giving these bonuses to current enlisted corpsman, they give it to fucking civvies who probably don't even know what the corpsman rating really entails because their recruiter is a fucking ship or Aviation rate that just think all we do is give out motrin and plug people.

Going to do my first private transfer this week, buying my first real gun.
Are there any tips that won't make me pass off as an aspie or make me look flat out retarded that would make the seller regret selling his gun to me or even call off the sale?

be polite. buy an armed services bumper sticker, but don't claim to be a veteran if you aren't.
Also bring the exact amount of money specified. and only that money.
1 bring cash, the exact amount
2 bring a knife, in case some niggas wanna nog
3 bring a positive attitude, because folks like that
4 bring your govt ID, because they're gonna ask for it unless niggas are nogging

It has been a few weeks now and nothing. No bench warrants. My licence is still good. They took my gun and I have not tried to get it back. Can a LEO shed some light on my situation? I had my blood drawn but was never processed by police for finger prints or brought into the cop shop. I've not tried to buy a gun since then. Am I now unable to purchase a new firearm? Did I just somehow get lucky and avoid a DUI charge by pulling a gun on myself? It was a terrible mistake. It has even made me really question if I should carry if I did some dumbfuck retardation such as that but I'm in a hellish limbo. I'd like some insight into how much I have fucked my gun rights.

>Driving is not a right expressly protected by the Constitution so the state can run pell mell on your ability use machinery you could otherwise freely own and operate

The idea that cars, a mechanical means of travel, can be regulated by the state simply because one would use them on "public" roads is tenuous at best and depriving a man of his right to travel by way of his own cognisance cannot be impaired up until the point where he has actually harmed another. So we would have it with guns so we should have it with the automobile.

CVN-81 with no aircraft or escorts for $15bn


2x QE Class carriers for $3.94bn each
72x F35 for $7.2bn

What do you actually get by spending $15bn on an aircraft carrier? This is before you factor in the obscene operating costs of a nuclear warship with 2,600 crew.

Or would you rather 500 of autonomous warships patrolling the ocean?

>$15 billion

I don’t think so. We were contracted to build 79 for 20% less than 78, and we’re right about there. 80 and 81 with the dual buy will be even less than the normal expected cost reduction. Just because 78 was a shitshow due to first in class and the Navy constantly changing its mind about what it wanted on it, doesn’t mean 81 is going to be burdened with the same cost overruns.
$15bn was the new cost from a day ago, that's the figure that was given to Congress

>Overall superior carrier that I gimped it from being able to actually do its job? Or the carrier with aircraft
