Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology.

Troll threads will be deleted, and those posting troll posts will be banned.

Sup /k/, kind of a dumb question. I wasn't sure where would be the right place to ask, so I thought I would try here. I bought a pair of Original SWAT 9" boots for work (security), the problem I'm having is the left foot boot (to the right in pic related) is flexing into my tibia area when walking, and especially when going down stairs. The right boot is fine however, as the sides flair out instead of in. Its extremely uncomfortable, but I'm not much of a shoe guy. Is this a matter of just breaking them in, or did is it just poorly constructed?

Nice and creamy. Though go easy on the salt next time.
OP's pic is from Opchan, not 4chan. The guy on the far left is Serv, the admin of Opchan.
They are a bunch of bumbling fucking retards. Also Serv's sister is a mudshark who contracted HIV, and he cries like a little girl every time someone mentions it.

I stave off hunger hunger pains by taking Metamucil.

It is calorie neutral whilst giving a full belly feeling. I then consume body fat and keep up with hydration.

Benefit is also leaving odorless stools behind when innawoods.

Other hit limit.

I was bored and was curious to the actual numbers comparing the SyAAF ability to the RUAF in Syria.

Russia has ~54 aircraft stationed in Syria, with 5 heavy bombers flying to Syria from Russia for missions. They've lost 1 SU-24.They have 12 Hinds and 4 Hips, 1 of those Hips now being destroyed by a TOW.

Sortie rate for the Russians is easily 100+ depending on the day it varies.

Compare that to one heavy (for the SyAAF) day for SyAAF its 40 sorties.

Observable confirmable sightings (videos) of sorties over Syria for the month of October 2015 is as follows:

>28 Syrian sorties
>49 Russian sorties
Now here's where it is harder to discern, they're is 30 SU-24 sightings, both Russians and Syrians fly them regularly but I think it can be safely assumed the Russians have a higher operational readiness so let's say its >20 Russian to 10 Syrian

>I maintain Bell 206 JetRangers and Eurocopter Squirrels for a living.

What's the work like? Do you enjoy your jerb?
Inexperienced/stressed pilot plus rotor torque.
Yeah, my grandpappy was commissioned in 1939, tied the world record with the Thompson with a score of 398/400. Started WWII a captain in the USMC. Landed on Guadalcanal (got bronze star, also immortalized in the official USMC history of the 2nd Marine Division during WWII -- if you have the book, you can read about him trolling on the 'canal), the Gavutu Islands, did the Vella La Vella Campaign, 6th wave of the assault on Iwo Jima where he was wounded (then the occupation of Japan thru '47). Designed and commanded the building of the communications infrastructure for Camp Pendleton. Planned combined operations with Joe Foss, Chesty Puller and Roy Geiger. Left as a Lt. Col. Joined the Army National Guard in '47 as a captain and CO of a SD bn, left in '57 as a Lt. Col.

Told me he never fired his weapon at the enemy (without looking at me). Only used it to shoot a deer while RnR'ing in New Zealand, he said.

What I'm trying to say is that your great uncle was a good man and a killer.
If you read Chickenhawk the pilot of a Huey has to fly into a forest canopy to escape an ambush

The rotors get beat to fuck but it still flies fine

The binary fire system by Franklin armory is a SEMI AUTO trigger designed to fire a round on the trigger motion back (pull) and the trigger motion forward (reset)

Operating on long wavelengths only when the bomb bay doors were open and for limited periods of time so tbey wouldnt get fragged by NATO SEAD. That's like being drunk while threading a needle on a time limit. Perfect fucking timing and slav ingenuity took down one of the most technologically advanced aircraft at the time.

>B Flight is the Combat Control Team (CCT) comprised of Combat Controllers responsible for reconnaissance, joint terminal attack control and advanced force operations either as part of a larger advanced force (supporting the SASR or Commandos from the 1st or 2nd Commando Regiment) or independently.[4][5] Combat Controllers provide a range of capabilities, including from Forward Air Control of Offensive Air Support, Landing Zone Reconnaissance, Aviation Meteorology Observation and Airspace Management.
>In 2006, Special Operations Command asked the RAAF if the Air Force was capable of fielding battlefield airmen similar to US Air Force combat controllers.[6][7] Between 2008 and 2009 three intakes completed initial training and four members deployed during combat operations in Afghanistan with the Special Operations Task Group (SOTG).[7][8] Combat Controllers served continuously with the SOTG from 2008 rotating controllers at each SOTG rotation until withdrawal.[9]

>Selection to become a Combat Controller is open to any ADF member and involves completion of the 8 week CCT Intake Course providing preparatory ground skills training and to prepare volunteers for the Special Forces Entry Test.[10] Volunteers need to successfully pass the Special Forces Entry Test, complete the Commando Reinforcement Training Cycle, Joint Terminal Attack Controller, Aviation Meteorology, Assault Zone Reconnaissance and Air Weapons Delivery courses.[4][11] After passing selection and completing nearly two years of training the Combat Controller is issued with a grey beret featuring a Sykes-Fairbain (commando) dagger.[7]

>A Flight comprises four modified PC-9/A (Forward Air Control variant) aircraft in grey paintwork. They differ from standard PC9s in several ways, including external stores carriage, communications equipment, undercarriage and are fitted with smoke grenade dispensers for target marking.[2] These aircraft are based at RAAF Base Williamtown, to train ADF Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs, formerly forward air controllers), who coordinate air support to troops on the ground.[3]

So are these actually used for forward air control, or just simulation for training ground controllers?

Who would win in a war?

Russia or Turkey?
215 replies and 18 images omitted. Click here to view.
Most of Russian military budget goes for nukes, anyway.
Actually, Syria shooting down a Turkish jet is what led to Turkey's strict airspace defense, which then led to them shooting the Russian jet
Russia has zero fear of any of this tripe, let's be serious. What it fears is being dragged into a global war by the irresponsible actions of Turkey. If Turkey was confident it could take on Russia, then why run to NATO immediately after violating basic rules of engagement? The only problem Russia has is that it is reluctant to start the WW3 nuclear exchange.
>when there is shit happening to turk people

The only thing happening is the flood of refugees.
i hate these threads.

>Who would win in a war

that's the problem, there's never any explanation of objectives. Is it occupation of the other country? Getting the other to back down from Syrian airspace? Dividing the population in a country? Annexing a small portion of the country, and then to who shall it be annexed?

The question is stupid, because it's not a complete question.

Lay down objectives first, THEN ask who will accomplish those objectives.

They're fine. I like the idea of a grip safety, but not the XD's implementation of it. If you get one I'd replace the trigger bar with an aftermarket part as it's supposedly a weak point.

You are a civilian living in a small country in a troubled area of the world. SHTF and your country is torn apart by civil war. The city you live in is turned into a rats nest of rubble, and becomes the focus of the conflict in the civil war. Luckily your uncle had the forsight to see this coming and with his extensive family and friends turned the bomb blasted and battle scarred house into a small fortress, as well as stocking up on arms and supplies months before. You are safe for now but criminal and wayward military units have come close to discovering and overcoming your current position recently, and combined with dwindling resources it's becoming untenable. You are being sent out to scout for new areas in the city to make home.


>You may only have one firearm, the rest are needed back at home.
>Ammunition is limited. You can take 4 magazines for assault rifles and SMGs, 6 for pistols and 2 for LMGs. Shotguns are limited to 50 shells and revolvers one box of ammunition.
>You may only fill three small sized slots with food
>Civilian clothing and hats only
>It's bitterly cold
