... Or maybe the Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk6K1zTBcI4

... The Saab 37 Viggen is the only fighter jet that ever managed to get a missile lock on the SR-71 Lockheed, and also did so multiple times, so that's cool.
https://theaviationgeekclub.com/viggen-vs-blackbird-swedish-air-force-ja-37-fighter-pilots-able-achieve-radar-lock-legendary-sr-71-mach-3-spy-plane/
(apparently the last name of the fighter pilot who locked on SR-71 five times literally means "Fire")

... Then there's our Gotland-class submarines, like the one that managed to do multiple simulated attack runs on the USS Ronald Reagan and "sink" it - without being detected by any support vessels.

This is the inaccurate part. It failed to sell because ENGESA invested everything into the tank- and tried to sell it to Iraq. It was this, and the concerns about ENGESA's production capacity (They'd never built a tank before, and the Brazillian army wasn't buying) that sank the vehicle.

There's just something about this plane. As far as aerial control goes it totally dominates other airplanes. Seriously. The F-35 may be more advanced in its electronics and Russia or China may have some half-baked competitor but for everything else in a fighter the F-22 is unparalleled. It's a shame they were designed and developed perfectly but then we lost the opponent they were designed to beat, and so we didn't need 1000 of them so we only have 200 of them in stock.

It's a beautifully alien looking plane. If you ever get the chance to see one in action you should definitely do it. You'll realize that the pilot is using maybe 10% of its potential in an airshow.

If there's one thing it doesn't have it's armament endurance. The internal bay does not carry that many missiles. Such is the result of having the radar signature of a robin.

Eh... I think the concept of an assault rifle evolved to include AKs and MP44s in the same sense that assault rifle can cover what we refer to on this board as battle rifles, or for the ARFCOM boomers MBRs, it's a broader catch all. Remember that the first firearm chambered in 7.62x39 in general issue was the RPD way back in '45. I don't think anyone would consider that a belt fed SMG based on it's cartridge. I will piggy back on your comment to say that I sincerely believe the Hungarian AMD Tanker is a top-5 SMG and I know I could catch shit for putting it in that category but it kind of works given the nature of it's role.

It was only a machinepistol in name. The designers of the StG literally called it the MP-44 because Hitler was so fanatical about full power rifle cartridges and bolt actions, being the oldschool WWI vet he was, but accepted that a Machinenpistole could be automatic. The StG was literally developed in secret under Hitler's nose. Turned out he fucking loved the gun after it was revealed to him.

Except I'm 100 percent correct. The Saudis had 2 options. Either buy a tank that's used by both the United States and Egypt already, made by your biggest ally that supports you, and is maybe marginally worse (If even that, armor wasn't tested and it's likely the Osorio was not exemplary in that department). The other option is to buy an untested MBT that's being made by a company that's never made an MBT before, who is trying to sell the tank to Iraq, your biggest regional rival, and is circling the drain with no domestic buy in. The correct choice is clear, and the Saudis made it.

The Germans didn't invent the concept, though.

The rules for what constitutes a 'full-sized rifle cartridge' and 'pistol cartridge' are 100% arbitrary, so the intermediate cartridge thing is a big fat fallacy.

The fact of the matter is that weapons like the Fedorov Avtomat fill all the physical requirements of what constitutes an assault rifle, utilizing a cartridge weaker than their standard for rifles for the express purpose of making the gun more controllable.

We run into similar arguments in other fields of study, such as with Tanks. Some people refuse to acknowledge that the Panther was a 'medium' tank because it was so much heavier than other medium tanks of the era. But it was deployed as a medium, so...

Again, pistol grip has never been cited as a prerequisite of assault rifles. You're making that up.

Sustainable full auto is arbitrary, and again, the cartridge chosen for the gun was specifically to make it more controllable in full auto.

The magazine was removable.

The Fedorov completes the entire checklist of what constitutes an assault rifle, as did a number of guns even earlier than it. The Germans just like to believe that they invented the universe.

After dealing with U-Boats in two world wars and being the gatekeepers of the GIUK gap in the cold war the UK takes ASW very seriously.

I'd be comfortable in saying we're better at it than anyone else, the jewel in the crown being Astute, which is probably the best pure SSN in operation.

Both the fedorov atvomat and M2 were never intended for the tactical role of an assault rifle though. 7,92x33 was the first cartridge developed to be effective on long, medium and short range and fullfill the expectations you'd have for an assault rifle. the other 2 were just kinda lucky coincedence.

Probably the best tank we ever made (for its time). Since then our tanks, while not terrible, all have their own drawbacks either due to their inherent design choices (e.g Chieftain engine) or due to neglecting to upgrade the design (Challenger II).

The carrier has defined modern warfare for over 60 years now. It's at the absolute center of US power projection, and the mere presence of a US carrier off the shore of a potential enemy nation is enough to get them to capitulate most of the time.
It's such an elegant tool of destruction, especially if you compare it to WW1 naval combat. You had these massive, hulking behemoth dreadnoughts fitted with some of the largest and most powerful guns ever developed by human kind, fast, maneuverable destroyers and cruisers, and swarming deadly torpedo boats, stealthy u-boats. They all get got dominated by a big floating piece of tarmac.

Battleships; floating fortresses with gigantic arsenals and foot thick armor were rendered absolutely irrelevant once carriers, a ship class that barely even has guns came on the scene. Pure badass.

>>39667590
No, it wasn't. You will find no evidence in existence that the Germans classified tanks by gun caliber. I don't know how in the world that long-debunked theory from the eighties got started.

The Pz.Kpfw III was a medium tank, and it used a 37-mm gun at one point. Then a 50-mm gun. Then the Pz.Kpfw IV and Pz.Kpve V come along with 75-mm guns. In fact, the Pz.Kpfw IV with a 75-mm gun was originally intended to be a 'heavy' tank.

Obviously, gun size wasn't by any means a factor in their classification.

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that an F-4 should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The F-4, of course, flies anyways. Because F-4s don't care what humans think is impossible. Which is why it is our best plane.

USS Enterprise CV-6.
She was in pretty much every battle in the Pacific. She represents what American carriers CV-2 through 8 did in the early years of the war and many of those carriers went down fighting. Not Enterprise, she survived (and unfortunately was scrapped with little being saved.) Keeping the US Navy in the war after the battleship force was mostly knocked out at Pearl Harbor. Carriers were not meant to be the main striking force, but they were thrown into that role and proved it worked.

>angle-decked carriers
British. Invented by a RN Captain in '45.
>CATOBAR ops
Both steam and hydraulic catapults are British inventions, the RN used them loads in the North Sea/Barents/Arctic during WWII. Arresting cables as you probably know were tested on HMS Courageous in 1931.
>every aspect of modern naval aviation, the modern carrier strike group, etc. and etc.
? What do you even mean by this? Carrier focused task-groups? Another bong innovation. Their 3 converted carriers (the follies) EXTENSIVELY practiced and pioneered dual-carrier (and triple-carrier) fleet operations and night strikes in the interbellum. There's not a lot shiny and new about 'modern' naval aviation, just expansions on previous tactics.

The technology that allowed the construction of nuclear weapons (ie first nuclear reactor and components) was first built in the US, there was no tech transfer there was only helpful information (and the majority of the scientists were still Americans or naturalized Americans). And all the subsequent early advancements in nuclear technology were all made in the US. By the early 1950s the US had multiple reactors and hundreds of nukes, and we still have the most reactors today.

Hohenzollern was an Emperors house for what? 40+ years, lost the first big war they fought... and willhelm ii was a degenearte cripple with bad genes, that fucked up everything he touched, his own people hated him.

Austrias House Habsburg ruled almost 800 years and saved europe from the muslim turks twice... Emperor Franz Joseph II ruled for almost 60 years and had a 16 hour work schedule, not a single citizen of the Austrian Empire that wouldn place him one step next to god- the true god empereror. Austrians were called german bevore the wood niggers from saxonia to bavaria even gave up their teutonic tribes and clan structures.
Go suck an arab cock somewhere in cologne or watch the niggers rape your girls in berlin, germcuck what have you become? nd what do you do on a weapons board, in fucken muslimgermcuckery you need a licence even for a fixed blade knive.

The write brothers made a circus show with no applications. they gave up on flight once the novelty wore off.

Various European designers were building genuine aircraft that were more than the write brothers straight line aircraft that was mostly glider. I struggle to think of any aircraft innovation - related to the physical flight of a plane - that came from the US.

This. I finally got to see an F-22 demonstration a couple months ago at NAS Oceana. It was fucking amazing to watch. So loud, but so graceful through the air doing things that look alien for an airplane to do. Just pulling shit that doesn't look right. I know Russians have some Sukhois that can pull that stuff too but it was my first chance to see it in person and not on a screen and it's breathtaking to watch.

Watching it fly down the runway and pull straight up effortlessly with the burners rolling just going up and away like a fucking rocket with so much power. I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a fucking boner.

>bongs dont have any carriers to show for their innovations
Yeah it's pretty tragic. After decades of mismanagement and deliberate project assassination bongs had no money to spend on proper power projection. If postwar governments hadn't all been functionally braindead in terms of R&D, they'd have saved many, many billions and come out the other end far stronger.
>sure America copies some things but we improve it to ten fold and actually have the capacity to field them
Absolutely, the USN has taken those concepts and pushed them to the limit. They've indisputably been the masters in naval aviation since (probably) 1942, despite borrowing concepts from the RN.
>One "carrier" that was a POS of the line
Don't know about it being a POS. It's no Ford, yeah, but viewed from the lens of a service having to claw literally every cent and shred of capability from their own government i think it turned out pretty well. There's some pretty space-age shit on it too, the automated weapons handling being one of these developments. Expect to see that adapted to CVN-80 (maybe 81) onwards,

It's packaging and shit for the science experiments held in the storage bays on the sides of the LEM. If you look at some of the videos and pics of the Apollo landings you can watch them literally throwing plastic and mylar shit everywhere. Looks like some drunk faggots that littered a campsite in the woods with hot dog packaging and beer cans.

I know it's the moon and they aren't taking their trash back with them I just thought it was a funny comparison before anyone gets butthurt about it.

Not the anon you're replying to but you know what? I am proud of my parents basement. It was THE hangout spot for me, my friends and all the other neighborhood kids. My neighborhood was fucking great for growing up in. At least a dozen kids all within the same age range all on the same block. We'd get games of football, baseball, ditch, nerf/super soaker wars, etc, put together instantly just by walking around the block. My parents' place was right in the middle of the block so it became the epicenter of all the kid activities. If parents around the neighborhood didn't know where their kids were they'd call our place because 9 times out of 10 their kid would be there playing Lego or Donkey Kong Country or Perfect Dark with us.
>>
>>39673662
I meant that more as a current year sort of deal. Your parent's basement was great when you're a kid, but if that's still where you spend your time at 25, you tend to keep that to yourself.

Or don't, and wonder why no one wants to share your Cheetos.

Not him, but there is a lot of debate about cost/benefit of carrier groups for next get. Yes they are great for power projection but at the same time they are expensive to buy and operate, and you got millions worth of planes on a single ship, the economical and moral damage of one being sink would be catastrophic which pair bad with their weakness against subs and hyper-velocity missiles.
They are the most powerful force projection facility right now.
