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.

So Finland has announced that her defense forces will not be abandoning the venerable RK-62, or adopt the ARX-160 but will be upgrading the 62's with picatinny rails Mag-pull telescopic stock and optics and lights.

Well, I have one, and even though I haven't shot all AK varients, I can tell you that of the ones I do have tried, the Sako is definitely the most accurate and well built.

Lapua 7.62x39 is the modernization for 7.62 kalashnikov wanted, when he said it would be better to stay with 7.62x39 and modernize it vs 5.45.


Lapua 7.62x39 is damn match ammo accurate, and is loaded very hot.


It's also $20 for 50 rounds kek.

Because Sako was bought by Nokia, who sold it to Beretta. There's no way for Finns to manufacture any guns any more.

There's also just some 10000s of RK-95s ever made, while the number of manufactured RK62s is said to hover in hundreds of thousands. It's a common rumor that FDF would have several hidden bunkers with tons of RKs dipped in oil, all around the country.

Here's a repost of the recently "leaked" photo of the even further modernized RK62. The whole foregrip is replaced with far sleeker thing with RAILZ all over it, and the muzzle break is some brand new style as well.

Why does Magpul do this? They develop some really neat stuff (FMG-9, PDR, Masada) and then...don't produce them.

Are they secretly shitty or something, or does Magpul just like giving me the blue balls?

I mean, IDGAF if the Masada would have been expensive, I can save. Same for the FMG and the PDR.

Yeah, all this talk assumes that it HAS to be a glock 18c. Why not release the FMG9 as a glock 17 retrofit kit like the Roni glock kit? That way all you have to do is get an SBR stamp.

IIRC the original FMG9 was a glock 17 with an auto sear on the back of the slide, not an 18c.

I started collecting and building Gundam kits and they sure add up fast, I have tons of the things now, lots of fun to put together and it gives me something to do with my little sister, we're also watching our way through the various series in order.

We're almost to the end of Stardust Memory.

But she loved this fight too, how can you not love a character who makes the simple act of turning on his MS utterly badass?

This meme is a little callous.

The people that perished in that flight were actually innocents, unfortunate enough to trust a banana boat national carrier like Malaysian Airlines to fly them over an active warzone with known high altitude SAMs.

I actually blame the fucking Ukrainian cunts for the shoot down because they were the ones denying there is any threat in their eastern provinces and authorizing air traffic over what was in fact a war zone.

Alright, so last time the burgers claimed it wasn't an abrams. Or that it did not have DU inserts (despite DU-inserts only affect front armor). But the widespread belief seemed to be that it could not possibly be an abrams.

How about now? Still no abrams?

The problem with all these friendly fire incidents is that they occur at extreme ranges. At one mile distance you must be pretty blind to misidentify a M1A1HA as a T-72 tank... at two or three miles however...
Just because a M1A1HA couldn't be penetrated by a M829 or M829A1 at the turret front at such long combat distances (Iraq and Kuwait has been considered ideal terrain for long range engagements), it is still very hard to qualify the protection of the tank under different circumstances.
>>
>>27075883

The funny thing is the Saudi tanks have DU armor as well.

Except it makes no difference on flank hits. So even the bestest, most recent and up to date American army grade Abrams is liable to get FUCKED by an old school FAGGOT ATGM.

Burgers are going to have to go full slav now and start protecting all of their shit with ERA.
>>
all of these photos we just see fire erupting from tanks that may be Abrams. the Abrams is designed to vent ammo fires up and away from the interior.

most of the pictures we have seen are just these fireworks. the aftermath photos always show the tanks essentially intact otherwise.

any tank just parked statically with no over watch for hours on end is going to get burned. you may as well post a photo of a wounded marine and go hah! not so invincible as thought. as if its some shocking fact and you deserve credit for it.

you are attacking a delusion if you think this 'evidence' shows a problem with Abrams tanks
>>
>>27076959

That's hear-say, and something the DoD probably jumped on to enhance the reputation of their tank, consiering Abrams have been disabled in 2003 by 23 mm ZU-23 fire into the rear with penetrations into the engine compartment.

It's not magic mystery composites back their, it's just a cast steel tub that surrounds the engine and I guarantee it's not more than 150 mm thick.

>>
>>27077068
The same things you use to protect from nuclear or chemical weapons protects even better from disease vectors. Filter masks, ect.

If a nuke goes off, you're staying put in shelter until the ambient radiation goes down. If it was a chemical suit you're wearing a full NBC suit with filter mask. Trying to spray bird flu on the ashes isn't going to work.

A bioweapon used before a nuclear attack might work. If the disease is around propagating and then they try to evac everyone pending a nuclear bomb into cramped fallout shelters for two weeks, that'd probably kill some people.

Let's just think about that for a minute shall we?

There is no machine gun registry for federally possessed machine guns. The only control for those weapons are agency or unit internal supply books. You're right of course, most LEOs do not have fully automatic rifles in their patrol cars.

Honest question for the expensive knife lovers here.

Is there anything a 300$, or 500$, or "2000$" (I refuse to believe anyone's ever paid that much for a knife) knife can do, that my 25$ Kershaw can't? Maybe it'll cut a little better, require less sharpening, and be more resistant to breaking and chipping, but do you guys really think that's worth 300 bucks? Or is it just a luxury thing, like "I can throw away 500$, and I want to show it."
