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.

i'm amazed with how patient he was. he's not leaving btw, he's just not using the trip. i wouldn't be surprised if he keeps dropping atomic facts on people like always, just without the trip. his greentext of silly shit > direct answer chain is easy to pick out.

i used to know a guy who was (at the time) active australian intelligence and i told him he should start posting about his work (not spy shit, but close-ish). he talked without a trip and got derailed for something like 10 threads, then he tried a trip and someone called him a "discount oppenheimer, just even more of a faggot" and he left this website entirely.

we need to fix this board culture. it's absolutely cancerous at the moment.

>He just fucking talks about nukes with a great deal of authority you fucking spergmaster.
Im not the trump poster but >>31464094 and this will be my second and last post in this thread:

If the other posters would actually read what I wrote, I don't bear the man any ill will, nor do I claim to have seen all his threads. When I first talked to OP years ago I asked him a very general question with an answer that would contradict what you see on the first few pages of Google, he did not answer it correctly.

Does this mean he is a liar or has pulled everything out if his ass? It does not, should he have been bullied off the board? I don't think so, but just like he has said in his own reply:
>and on the other side, I can do no wrong, and should be revered.
The same levels of fanaticism from those who want him gone I see when I make a simple comment about how you need to take things posted at face value shows the quality of this board.

All I am is a bitter old man who is not willing to talk about things to the depths OP is. From the threads I have been in, he has mentioned topics that are both researched and interesting, just not always accurate.

The amount of work that goes into the creation of a weapon (nuclear or otherwise) is incredible, and it's not reasonable to expect one person to know about all the steps. I don't think that should be a requirement for discussion either, however, the amount of hatred on both sides on a Chinese cartoon imageboard is insane.

It's trash. Like I said earlier, we had a lot of really awesome people, all of them chased away. Somehow people still defend DR8CO though. It's the voluntary dumbing down of the board.

Bug Out Vehicle thread

/k/ I got a question, is there even a point to bug out vehicles besides getting to your hidey hole location? To what extent is a mad max style world feasible? It seems if you wanted to go anywhere, north south east west, you're never going to outrun fuel scarcity, and will fall victim no matter how nomadic you try to be. Unless your SHTF location is a oil derrick of sorts and you got the equipment to make even a shitty kerosene fuel, bug out vehicles are retarded to have, please prove me wrong.

Also if you did have a bug out vehicle, wouldn't ones like pic related be the best bet, given their significantly better ability to go into remote locations?

Curently I live in a big city surronded with hills. Getting out by car is a nightmare when everything is normal becaue of the traffic, doing so in a SHTF scenario would be downright impossible. This scares me sometimes.
Thankfully we're in the process of moving to somewhere less cramped.

Anyway I'm too poor to afford a dedicated SHTF vehicule, so Peugeot 206 it is.

>convert to biodiesel

thats not how any of this works

biodielsel conversion isnt something you just "do". The vehicle has to start off as a diesel engine to begin with, it generally has to be an older engine, then you need to actually have a conversion kit. You're not going to field engineer a fucking conversion kit for a modern engine.

>>31461990
Ya see I like this idea and have had it before

But if I'm at an ATM and I get mugged I won't really have time to get in my backpack

Do you CC on top of having the .45?

Thinking about it, I feel like a take down rifle, shotgun, or even something like the Keltec Sub2k would be great in the bag, while I'd have a small sidearm to CC (probably a small revolver or .380/.32, since if I need more capacity I've got the piece in the bag)

But I am a fat, slightly mentally ill, possibly autistic neckbeard anyways, and I feel like carrying a rifle or even two pistols on me is overkill. I like the idea of carrying in the backpack since I can carry something that I don't have to conceal, but feel like access to it could prove tricky when I need it most

Thoughts?

In the military these contained copies of essential paperwork, such as orders, awards, ERB and mypay statements, promotions, and w/e you found essential.

For civilian use I could see someone having photocopies of their DL, SSN, EMT card, CPR/First Aid and w/e that may come in handy in a shtf. Although, a wallet can carry this more effectively.

My friends of /k/, I come to you as a drunk man tonight (circumstances lead to this). I began to drift back to the old days of my dream of owning a Mil Mi-6 Hook (posted on here before). I found an add many days ago that was selling one for 150,000 dollars. It did not list the beast as being in Ukrainian Rubles or USD, if it's Rubles then it's only like 5,500 USD. IF so, is anybody interested in joining me on picking the large bird up from Ukraine and flying all over the world on the most epic adventure ever? Apparently it was stolen from Russia. Owning this and joining the US Marine Corps have been the two dreams of my life and so far I've more or less accomplished one. Who wants to help me accomplish the second one?

Some of the tanks you see driving in their parades are downright ancient and would almost certainly pop in one shot. Of course we can't know if they would actually make people operate them in combat. Their best tank is a T-62 copy but nobody really knows how good it is.

Major issue would be repair and resupply, tanks require hours of maintenance for every hour of operation, they can barely keep the things running in peacetime.

Remember, the people driving those tanks think they're invincible.

Its only defense would be if it's going up against a no-gun variant and the pilot doesn't think it's worth a missile.

Maybe just fly right past it and hope the sonic boom shakes it apart.

Thanks bro! I almost went with a Scrambler; how do you like it? They're sooo damn pretty.

I find that having a set taxonomic category for naming vehicles -- birds, in my case -- makes it much easier to select names based on a particular vehicles' characteristics and similar animal traits. I don't know if that helps, but I thought it worth mentioning.
